"I said they were sock puppets and tribes said they weren't. You claim you're not, but you don't post under the name Phil Garner, either"

I have mentioned my name on a few posts, but have always used the moniker Max Bottomtime. Are you saying that Badfish, Seahunt, MHK, JW, ChrisM, coralcuts, Captain Mean & Grumpy should only use their real names, despite the fact that as a small community of local divers, most people on the list know each other, or at least know their names?

"Chances are if you go on a boat and introduce yourself nobody's going to make the connection."

Actually, a funny thing happened once. I was preparing to dive the Olympic wreck when another boater pulled along side and asked if I was Max Bottomtime. I told Ross that my fame had preceded me. :-) It was my first meeting with Bughunter Bill(Bill Duarte, if you must know).

"You didn't answer any of my other questions, Phil, you just claimed it wasn't you. The silence is...troubling, and gives me cause to doubt."

??? What questions would that be?

"Do you approve of, and condone, the constant daily sock puppetry going on over there? I don't recall you ever speaking out against it."

I don't really care one way or the other. I don't waste my life away worrying about it. I do find it amusing that JohnB, aka John McBurney...ScubaRoo...YKW, you, aka Rolio Tomasi and even MHK, who used a sockpuppet as a joke once get so riled at others doing the same thing.

"I'm not going to apologize for defending anyone against the kind of pressure you guys apply once you've got your jaws locked on your victim. I've never let MHK get away with any of that either, but he gets points for sticking to his guns and taking it on the chin."

The only reply I can think of for that nonsense is a direct quote from MHK himself;
"There is nothing worse then a bully that cries about getting picked on, don't you have any pride??

How pathetic.."
