Only because he's recently shown an incredible lapse in judgment and is
willing to believe you lies. I honestly don't know what's going on with
him. He's usually one of the most intelligent people that posts here.

The reason I tend to believe him is that it's perfectly consistent with
the part of Scott's story about why he went to the "group" (mob?) for
suggestions about an alternative.

If you consider the possibility of a simple misunderstanding then both
stories are perfectly consistent.

Also, Scott keeps saying "show me the post" although he knows full well
the conversation was in a chat, not a newsgroup post. That suggests to me
he knows there was some degree of misunderstanding or misstatement on his
own part that he wants to avoid discussing.

And the final straw is the mob mentality. Mobs are almost always wrong
and that's what we have here. The most vocal are people who are not a
party to the agreement but just see a chance to call attention to
themselves and their own high moral character. Kind of like Bill OReilly.

I had skillz (and any threads responding to his posts) killfilled from
long, long ago. So I never saw the discussion about the bet. I've only
seen the recent discussions.

Based on character alone I'd tend to believe Scott over Skillz. But in
this case, the particular fact pattern causes me to lean towards a very
simple misunderstanding on both parts. I don't think anybody welched.

Translation:

I have no understanding of the facts at hand but I am going to shoot my
mouth off anyway because I am Gary Carson, Dammit!

Yeah, and pedophiles who are 'lured' into trying to fuck little kids are
'victims' of 'mob mentality'

Anyone who thinks Gary is 'smart' needs to ask him about internet
predators. On second thought read for yourself:

What chat? I have chatted with Skillz once and that was several years ago.

Gary is OK, but you are still a lowlife, ignorant, welching scumbag.

Can't we organize a mass ignore of skillz? I would certainly be for that.
If anything warrants it, it's his welching, but just replying to him
calling him a welching slut or scumbag or whatever really isn't doing
anything.
