    Are we talking about Big or JW? Either way, I feel like I missed something and should stop sticking up for these people.

    Pretty sure he is taking about JW. Big hasn't posted here since 2008. Sending nasty or vile pm's really wasn't Big's style.

    I enjoyed debating Big. He was very skilled at stirring the pot. It took some effort to counter his pronouncements. On a rare occasion you could even convince him that he was wrong. Wasn't easy.

    I wasn't aware of the specific incidents that lead to his departure. I trust Jensen that it was warranted.

    JW.

    I was around for the tail end of Big's run I believe. Never had a run in.

    There was plenty of other stuff, but what he said about the kids I teach stuck with me the most.

    Geez... I withdraw my comment about wanting JW back. I knew he wasn't very PC but I had no idea he was that much of a jerk.

    If I remember correctly, Big's last straw had something to do with derogatory comments about Sarah Palin's handicapped son. I know he was spiralling out of control for a while.

    Had JW had the gumption to send me PM's about individuals with varying exceptionalities, I would have made him my pet project bitch and done my best to make his life more miserable than it already must have been.

    As much as VA and I go back and forth, and I generally concede many points to him, I know what he does for a living and its a more important job than most of us do every day. A tip of the cap to him and he is aware about how I feel about him in that respect. If I could just get him to see Gopher Maroon baby!

    I don't remember a great deal of what Big used to say, but I have to say that I LOVE Tripster's/Big's posts today; the guy kills me!

    I have to think that I'm doing something right, though, as Ugly (who I like a lot, even though the feeling is likely not mutual), recently told me that I was, "getting more like Big everyday."

    A nice trip down memory lane. I guess from a knowledge standpoint, Big was always WAY up there but he used his knowledge for evil purposes. Perhaps he has changed his ways a little. I don't think even if I knew I was going to get my absolute ever lasting ass kicked, that I could let myself run off a mat 12 times? If there is video of that, I would probably pay to see that.
