    If I'm one of those 'others' you mention: I never had dubious intentions or reasons to post here nor did I ever get the feeling that Gio didn't appreciate my contributions

    What I posted in this thread was imo in line with what Gio posted himself.

    If this was a one-man-thread someone should have told me so.

    And now...

    I agree, Outlander. People should make plain what they expect from a thread they start. It sure would make things a lot simpler for those such as me, who tend to ramble and babble...ADHD -

    Gio had specifically asked for his Northwest Musings thread to be his posts only. He never made the request with the Emporium, and for a while it was not even his thread. That is, he asked for his name to be removed. Later, he asked that it be put back. He did state that he was doing it mostly for his own amusement, and that was quite different from the very specific request he made with his Musings thread.

    If people wish to keep the vibe going, they are welcome. No one will try to imitate Gio, since that would not be possible. And perhaps he will be back with more to share. Either way, I hope he will be well.

    Hi Dreamtimer,

    it seems so weird to me that someone starts a thread, puts a sundry list of cool stuff on it and then expects what? For posters to just stay mum with their thumbs up their bum ...

    Seriously, I would think that having eager responses would be the desired result.

    That seems to differ. I've found that Outlander, for example, has always appreciated input from forum members. Jimmer, who maintained a Sasquatch thread also welcomed additions. Shane, aka the Ruiner, had some issues, and he's now gone. He has his own site for his followers.

    The point is to discuss things, so I'd say, for the most part, keep on commenting.

    Actually, no, it was Corey Goode who had issues. Shane (alias The Ruiner) never posted his own blog here. That was Ria, Breeze and a few others. Most people — including the aforementioned — didn't even know that Shane Bales was a member here, until he himself came out of the closet to his followers. And from there on, there was a war between the Shanolytes and Corey Goode.

    Get well soon Gio.
    I am sure I heard you mention something about going away for some health thing..

    Interesting hearing comments regards protectiveness of the thread. I had noticed that quite significantly. I had also noted his displeasure at others posting in his thread. I find it a little bit precious myself, but in some cases fair enough and maybe I missed all the back chats. Though I find it a bit insulting hearing such behaviour being called an artistic temperament as that makes us out to sound particularly irrational and egotistical. Apart from that, I think he is okay, quite a cute Italian stereo type... being most of my experience of USA is from movies, he just fits one of those characters, maybe a Danny Devito or something...
    Anyway, get well soon sir, I hope it all works out for you.

    Gio is more than a little eccentric, but then he has good reason to be. His interests are exposed on his thread, and he just loves music and tot. He has, in fact, left tot a legacy, imho.

    I agree, Kathy. A very good legacy. It was also his threads at PA which kept my interest there.

    It was the followers rather than Shane himself who made trouble about me posting on the thread, Aragorn is correct about that.

    Gio...if you're seeing this..."Get yourself back here a.s.a.p." We miss you already!
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
