    Hey Dave,

    I respect your honesty. I had a nice time talking to you and your wife at Mego Meet and I hope you enjoyed yourself at the show. I like the work you are doing and hope you continue with it.

    well let's not get carried away here either guys, I highly doubt he's getting bullied....
    I'm sure he posted something that someone didn't like and they said something, I know I've gotten those pm's before...Now if they insulted you or you feel like what they told you wasn't appropriate..then just let one of the mods know and they should take care of it..

    I not sure of the details but I wouldn't let it bother you Dave. I deal with autism on a regular basis and I would never have known your situation. Not that it matters. My wife cares for a small child with autism. BTW, I also enjoyed meeting you both at the Meet.

    I have no idea what this guy said to you but for you to make this post it must of been something completely wrong. the only thing that comes to my mind is violence and being a all ages site I will restrain myself with what should be done to this guy who left you feeling the need to post this. one day this guy might say something to the wrong person and he'll be spending their next 365 days drinking food from a straw with a pencil taped to his head so he can make notes on how to treat a person while in recovery.

    While we weren't introduced, more than one person made it a point to mention to me afterwards about meeting you and how much they enjoyed it. I don't know why you'd have to justify that to anyone.

    The member was being thoughtful and helpful and spoke for several members. I respect the person and can guess who they were mentioning. I like them too.
    I thank You and I thank them.
    They were right. I get this a lot, for decades.

    ( but I am VERY sorry for the drama. )
