Nice post just now on the UL.
Perhaps a waste of time; perhaps off-base, but...
Dear Mr. Young,
Now that your USA transcon record attempt is over, I would like to share a
few thoughts with you......
My hope is that this appeals to you. By all accounts you are an extremely
nice and likeable guy, and I believe I would enjoy meeting you, and perhaps
sharing some time running in endless circles with you somewhere. I hope you
will consider giving us a try.
Yours very sincerely,
Jamesville, NY USA
What a piece of emotional crap! Are you and the author so gullible that you think RY and his gang will suddenly come clean? Or are you just trying to profile yourselves as Great Humans?
The ultra community: "the most open and accepting communities on this planet." Your self-indulgence is repugnant. I hope RY and other fraudsters continue to swindle you and drag your hobby through the mud. With the ridiculous naiveness you display you deserve every ounce of it.[/quote]
Yeah, this guy sounds slightly dopey. To be fair though, most of what you read on the ultralist pertaining to RY, although much more civilized than here, is not nearly as forgiving or clueless.[/quote]
1. You need to look up the definition of "naive."
2. Giving an honest "out" to a human being who has backed himself into an impossible corner is somehow repulsive to you? You must be a real treat.
