Jim, like you I read some of Jim Cheydi's posts and like you I noted he's been around since June or so. I found him on several threads before and he always seemed fine, but I never care for these "announcements" and what Hawk said is preferable....and easier to deal with when the member often returns for both the member and the rest of us.
Jim Cheydi has posted on other than music threads and as he has been around for awhile, I wouldn't consider him an "innocent bystander." If you get nailed on a non-music thread, you get nailed.......me, you, Sinsull, Jim Cheydi. Better not to play than to be easily offended........and for all that, I can't find exactly what it was that offended him.
