This is so sad. I'm sorry you're going through this, Julie. It's a lot of hard work for a good cause, and it has to get spoiled by a handful of corrupt people.

Hugs Julie.

I was just so happy to be nominated in the same category as Hugh Howey.  I mean hello?

I've temporarily locked this thread until it can be reviewed.  John, I also, possibly temporarily, removed your post with some history in it.  Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a deadline, and I can't review this as fully as I'd like but I'm sending up flares for one of the other mods.

A quick glance at John's very long post indicated that there was some private communication or forum post, and our policy is to not post the content of private communications of a third party here.  If the Admin team reviews it and deems it okay, the post will be restored.

Forgive me both for not dealing with this immediately and for the Borat pic.

NOTE:  After further review of the thread, and discussion, we're going to leave the thread as edited and locked, thanks.

Julie, I have every confidence in the Sith Witch.  But it's too bad you're having to go Sith.  Not surprising based on some of the stunts I've seen here, but too bad nonetheless.
