    It's even more pathetic that the first thing he'd do upon resurfacing is to point figures when someone he failed to pay had a child in the hospital. Olney never fails to reach new lows.

    Gail,

    I think you need to recommend Rick a barber:

    GAFIA (along with derived form such as gafiate and gafiation) is a term used in science fiction fandom. It began as an acronym for "Getting Away From It All", and initially referred to escaping from the mundane world via fanac. However, its meaning was soon reversed, and thereafter it referred to getting away from fandom and fannish doings. When fans say they're gafiating, it means they intend to put some distance between themselves and fandom. This can be either a temporary or a long-term separation.
    Coined around 1944. Extremely relevant and commonplace with today's fandom.

    And as for cancer . . .

    I took no extra time off from work for my surgeries. I managed to have my schedule arranged out so I had two days off in a row: one for the operation, one for recovery. No-one watched the Things for me except for the day I was in hospital; no-one cooked meals; no-one did laundry, cleaned house, ran for groceries. Fuck, I was doing the next morning and changing sheets two days after.

    More importantly, all my hospital bills are paid in full and I never missed a utility payment.

    Yet another in a series of convenient excuses.

    Didn't the last guy that had that kinda haircut, trample over and persecute people (and worse). This other person too had a holier than thou attitude and used religion (either Norse or Christian) to justify what they did.

    "Cancer is no man's friend."

    Please tell me that Rick is not implying that cancer kept him off the internet.
    I want to hold on to some sliver of a belief that that man would not sink so low that he would hide behind a false claim of cancer.

    Please Rick.
    Just don't.

    I don't know how that guy finds new depths.
    He just does.
    Someone tell me I'm misunderstanding this or reading it wrong.

    I really don't know if it was one thing or several but, he too believes RO should pay his debts and quit the slander talk.

    RO always finds new lows to go to, that is his mutant power.

    Eventually, everyone, even a spineless loser like Dennis, gives up on Rick.

    You trust him, he uses you. That's all he knows how to do.

    Even Dennis would get tired of being a footstool forever.

    But I have no sympathy whatsoever for Dennis Kinninger. That guy
    KNEW Rick cheated people, he admitted it, and he chose to mock and
    insult the people victimized by Rick. Dennis HELPED Rick even knowing full
    well people had been cheated in the past and even after all these
    allegations came through from reputable sources, Dennis still planned
    to work together with Rick on new comics projects (wow...two incredibly
    untalented wannabes with a complete deadbeat running things--how
    did THAT plan not succeed?).

    AND he told Rick he would stand by him and testify if necessary.

    Testify to what? This guy KNEW PEOPLE WERE BEING CHEATED, even
    though he did his best to stick his pasty head in the sand. For two guys
    who claim to love comics, they sure went out of their way to do as much
    damage as possible to as many creators, retailers and readers as
    humanly possible.

    I do find the entire Dennis thing funny. I suppose where Rick managed to pull off so much , Dennis felt ...hey he will produce comics and we'll both walk into the industry at some point. But as months turned to years and the heat not going away anytime soon on Rick and people making damn sure he'd never get himself in , Dennis realized having Rick as a pal was hurting him.

    Its just a sad situation really. I understand how you wanna stick by your friends. How you wanna defend them and take up for em. But at a certain point you as their friend have to call em on the bullshit they do. The bad things they do to others honestly.
