I would, but I don't know what/where/who it is. Probably rustic. Everyone s**t on him pretty good around here, he'd have more of an axe to grind than anyone I suppose. Whoever it is was pretty smart, they got poor ol' Mikey and Kevvie to expose their work IP addresses.

Yes you do. Some might call him....

G

But you and I know who he is. ;)
Really... who is this "G" you speak of... tell us all!

Not something I'm going to waste Bill's bandwidth on.

If people are interested there is a PM button.
So basically you don't know anymore than I do... g was just as anonymous to to me as he is to you. What's funny is all the conjecture about who the "real" g is. To my knowledge, no one has ever met him. If I did, I'd shake his hand though... :lol:

My thoughts exactly, and I don't really care who strongmelon is. Mountains have a way of humbling the truly experienced among us, rarely does someone of his self proclaimed caliber feel the need to brag about their accomplishments. I have yet to see anything in his endless spraying of posts that makes me think he is anything other than a forum junkie with decent google-fu.

After 2 pages of these guys p!ssing all over another good thread, I figured it might be time to put this back on track...

Right. Except CC and I don't spend our weekends making blogs and videos about other people. We finished highschool a while ago.

Maybe Corduroy Calves and I should make a youtube cartoon about how G is really Greenhouse guy.

That would be some funny s**t eh ?
Neither do I Kevvie... your beef is with someone other than me, maybe you should direct your pent up anger that direction.

That wouldn't have happened if someone hadn't decided to use 14ers.com as a device to promote his blog #-o

(and I would be fine if Bill deleted the last few pages, BTW)

Haha Mikey, I wish it were my blog, but it's not. :( How is your cartoon project coming along?

You're lucky Bill is as tolerant as he is with you. Not only do you get away with advertising your own stupid blog/youtube on his website, you post private messages for other folks to see, and most other forums dismiss users for doing so.

Cheese with the whine perhaps? Maybe covfrrider IS Bill Middlebrook? We really don't know who anyone is these days do we?

I'm flattered that you hold me in such high esteem as to create a testament to you guys, I wish I had the time... but work keeps me pretty busy these days.

Enjoy your fantasy.
