I didn't want to feed the energy black hole, but an RI member pm'ed me, thinking that I must be in contact with DE because DE had complimented me at his site, so I'm breaking my silence. DE's only purpose in complimenting me was to sow dissension. We are not in contact, haven't been for a long time. I am not a participant at his current site, or the one before that, and maybe not the one before that (I can't remember, because he has pulled them so many times) nor at KK or the other ones. I did contribute to one of his first sites. I used to like the work DE did, but with the deaths of Duncan and Blake and especially the ARG stuff, things got really weird. And, yes, I am keeping an eye on him now. That's not a compliment, btw.
At least one person, and likely more, played dirty tricks on DE. That's fact. Jeff did no wrong against DE, but he's getting blamed for it by DE, and it is Jeff's body of work and the bodies of community members' posts here that DE pours over, like the witch hunters who stripped and shaved the bodies of accused witches, looking for the witches teats--warts, moles, skin tags, birthmarks, and other imperfections, meant to suckle the devil, so they believed.. No place on the body was too private to inspect. Unfortunately, just as in the days of the Salem witch trials, DE and his familiars' witch hunts and attempted humiliation have introduced some really weird dynamics into our community, including fear, distrust, discomfort, and false accusations. So, to summarize, DE is going after Jeff, not the people who played dirty tricks on him. WTF?
Perhaps DE isn't looking to out a witch but to find a place to suckle. If you have a mole to offer him, fine, go there and offer it up, but could you at least have the decency leave the dynamics at his door and not here? And don't blame us when he burns you at the stake with all the information you gave him, even if you didn't know you were giving it by just registering there.
