Sorry to hear that. The MB community becomes very tight. In some ways despite the sometimes dysfuntionality I view the folks here as some of my closer friends...and I wouldn't know you if I saw you at the post office! A lot of times people will say, "Get over it. It's just a MB." While there is some truth in that I try to remember those are real people typing away and to try to avoid saying anything I wouldn't say to their face.
There was this guy named Zook, I think, who used to post at the Roost. Nice guy. He had had a couple of heart procedures and I think he too was a VN vet. The Panthers fan who was pretty knowledgeable but sort of young, dumb and full of come came in there and was just hammering him over a period of time. Well, the guy wound up dying and the Panthers guy came back in some time later speaking disparagingly of him...mainly in trash talk kind of way probably. when someone told him what had happened he really, really felt bad. Felt sorry for him.
All that said...I love you guys!!!!
