I really admire your courage and your standing up to this internet troll/bully "Bob Rogers". I look forward to meeting you in person one day and will tell you exactly who this internet coward is (and 4 others of his mob - 2 are from the state of Washington alone and 3 others from the East coast and Northern CA). They are directly behind most of the infighting which has gone on in Earpiana over the past 15+ years ... and have done their best to take the enjoyment out the Old West conversation/studies and disrupt the discussion boards. Several very good people have left the field completely due to there dishonest antics. This discussion board was started in the early 2000's in direct response to their insanity and lack of fair play (with their anonymous cowardly posting) and to give those that would not stand for it anymore and the courage to make a stand (like James and several others here) a place to post in peace. This is so unfortunate as there are so few of us left who love Western history and buy the books and go to the movies ... to help support it. I am very worried that the interest in this field could die out within the next generation or two; especially with us fighting amongst ourselves and the cowardly idiotic "Bob Rogers" of the world encouraging it ....
