Are you implying that Don is really Head's puppet...

The fact is: Head and Kallisti are not letting Don speak, while pretending to "protect him". I would like to hear what Don has to say.

How about you?

I seem to remember the last time you confronted Don when he returned...you put your foot in your mouth then and will probably do it again. Unfortunately, _____, the group knows better.

Oh, please don't discourage him, Grim...

Did you bring these Commandments in stone from Mount Sinai, Don?

You guys NEED a reality check.

About a year ago I went to an absinthe tasting party in Healdsburg, CA. 13 total, 8 Hausgemacht (from 5 makers).

Guess what? ALL the Hausgemacht were excellent. I know, because my Hausgemacht has gotten the "Forum's seal of approval" and the others were in the same league.

That day I learned that making good absinthe is as hard as fart in the shower. Even people who had a pretty dim idea of distillation got pretty good stuff.

If you Forumites would ever try making absinthe...some assholes would magically dissapear....


Translation = Dr. O, at times, can be full of shit.

I hope this is not one of those moments...
Absomphe
Dr.0...

I was a homebrewer for a number of years.

I produced some damned fine ale, and some even better mead, all on a really small scale, similar in quantity to the Hausgemachters.

Ted has taken a major leap forward (note I did NOT say Great Leap Forward, as I ain't no little red guard, chortle).

You think producing fine absinthe, on a commercial scale, with full scale alembics, is as easy as farting?

Go for it, DON Quixote...

Tilt at those windmills...I dare you!

Pussy! (Sorry, really, Greyboy)

What were your thoughts? We're anxious

We are?


Uh...oh yeah. We are! yes.gif


Will we find out that Jade is poop.gif ?
Will it be discovered that doctor-o.jpg ?


Tune in next week to find out! Same het.gif time, same het.gif channel.

Oh, Grim, we are in a first-name basis now?

That was the tactic Ted and Don used against another independent thinker. Outing him. Old Forum members remember this.

They did it a lot, but it was only used as a reason to ban Don when he became "politically inconvenient..."
dr_ordinaire
Oh, Head and Kallisti, I know that what Grim did merits being banned from the Forum, like Don.

But I'm sure it was an innocent mistake. Please let him stay.

Well I was a member of this forum in 2001, and I remember Don Walsh, but I don't recall ever hearing of a Dr O till I rejoined a few weeks ago.

Perhaps Dr O knows something I don't...

I wasn't being facetious. I don't think you did this on purpose.

I have contacted you privately before and you know my name.

It was a mistake.

No problema, OK?

Try "thinking differently", Ribo.

I've been a Forum member for what..over three years? I have (since we cannot mention illegal activities, let's say that in a dream I made a still from scratch, I drove to Mexico to get 95% alcohol, I found the herbs on the Internet and I made what, to my knowledge at the time, was the best absinthe I could make). I sent samples to many Forumites. I shared all the knowledge I had.

I ain't no Mother Theresa, but I'm not the monster the Forum shows.

I just didn't buy the Jade bullshit. And I have paid dearly for that.

Grim
Actually there is a "problema," O. I've only been contacted by you - privately - once...in case it escaped your memory, ten second tom, the aptly entitled "Fuck You" message. My apology hinges on a great, big, blatant "if..."
dr_ordinaire
Grim:

What we say privately and what we say publicly are different things.

Let's not mix them.

I'm sure that you and I, privately, will resolve our differences.

Grim
"If" you didn't bother to read Forum Etiquette item number 9:

Hate Mail: If you send hate mail or inflammatory mail to either the admins or other forum members it will be publically posted and you may be reported to your ISP.

Lucky for you *I* shared only the more refined tidbits of your e-mail. I didn't press that item then and have no need to now.
Grim
I don't care to know you privately, but we can mutually agree, here and now to accept a truce - and to stop being little pests - but drop Don...end the baiting, and be fellow forumites.
dr_ordinaire
Grim, are you on drugs?

You have done a big, BIG violation of the Forum rules, I give you an escape, quite gentlemanly, I say, and you REAM ME?

OK, be tossed.

Mike, he has been around a long while. He has been an antagonist of Ted and Don for years and years.

His primary focus seems to be (from my reading the archives, etc) that he (1) disagreed on the amount of TomJones in Absinthe, and cotinued for some time to quote an original Guestimates when better information (GC results) was already posted, (2) he continues to this day to assert that Absitnthe (Belle Epoc) was bitter.

Someone correct me if I am mistaken.

O, don't even begin to fool yourself...the only thing you have ever been capable of giving me is a laugh or two...and that has NEVER been your intent.
dr_ordinaire
Just kidding, Grim. I'm so against censorship that not even a gross violation of the rules would make ask for someone's ban.

But be more careful in the future about sharing private info, OK?
Grim
That's your problem, _____. You don't even know when to censor your self. Thank Goddess (hehe) the Jade party we've been having kept you smug for a spell.
Kirk
He has asked you politely to not use his name,
What don't you understand about that?
I think you should go back and edit that out.
Hey O : good to see you around.
That Jade is bitter.

Well, since I have no way of knowing the TJ content of an absinthe at the Belle Epoque, that matter is closed.

But about the taste of absinthe, whether it was bitter or not, there's something to be said.

EVERY source, every mention of absinthe at that time calls it bitter. It's weird. MY absinthe is not bitter.

How can EVERYBODY circa 1910 be wrong about the taste of absinthe?

Grim
Apologies, Kirk - but I know that is not what he was speaking in reference to. I am in the process of removing it from the thread. As a note, the name is in the archives...not the post he sent me.
Kirk
Really none of my business ,
but thanks.
I kind of like O ,
he reminds me of children,
when their mouths form little Os.

You out ME. You apologize to Kirk.

This is funny.
Kirk
Are you ever tempted to start your post with :
O...O... , O?
Grim
You can have an apology, too. I apologize to YOU, Dr. O, for using your name.

You would do well to remove the name that so offends you from your post.

This forum would run the risk of getting quite boring if you lot stopped fighting... Well, unless a new Jade product is released every 2 weeks.

Keep up the good work. LARS!.gif
