Why do you think you are causing me troubles?

Because, apparently, I believe something different than you and all your friends and colleagues (and quite frankly, 99.9% of the rest of the world, if I am to go by feedback which reaches me. It's just me, and according to Ian, Judy Wood's "nasty pussy." Oh! Don't forget! It is a matter of some importance!)

You're a real person to me, whether you're James or Steve. I truly don't want anything bad to happen to you. There have been quite a few suicides and unexplained deaths of young men around this issue. I want it to stop now. I think the more open and available all this info is, the more likely to put an end to all the killing.
(Although my ego would love for you to be James! What do they call my type in the clandestine field? "Walk-ins?" Volunteer spies philosophically motivated? That's me, I hope you believe that. I have no ulterior motive other than the ego which we all share. Aren't I DAMN GOOD!!!?)

I've contacted you half-a-dozen times. Each time you have dismissed me out of hand. Why would you now engage me with a question?

I think the last times you contacted me via email you were either hostile or cryptic if I remember correctly so why should I have done anything other than dissmiss it?

Everyone doesnt believe the sames things and if that was going to cause me troubles I would be clinically insane by now. BCO is not my forum so I dont care what you do there. Criticalthrash is my only messageboard and that is why I banned you from it and recently updated the code so you cant view it at all unless you are logged on. I have no control over bco thankfully so I dont care what you do there.

I am definitely not james schauer. I assume you must have found the thread someone on the net that saw that my old phone number was listed as j schauer. I do know a former j schauer though very well infact but thier name is certainly not james.

Dear steve:

Funny, but I sent you that other email asking you if you could unban me before I saw this one. Also I worked real hard on a blog linking with a bunch of my critical thrash threads but I guess that is useless since you've updated your code to close off CT from outsiders. I'll have to scan my thread printouts since I want to make my CT dialogues public. I guess your not going to unban me in any case.

You banned me from CT because I was making such an ass of myself, but you weren't hanging out there and posting at the time. You had started two threads in six months. You were posting on crewcial then. I remember when your guinea pig died (I'm sorry.) and when you'd talk about basketball. It's weird that you would switch back over there but I'm sure everybody's glad to have you back. Tell Aaron and dzeman and knucklehead and peaceful warrior and carvey and all the rest I really miss them.

I'm sorry if I came across as sarcastic or rude in my private contacts. I know we disagree on the facts etc. but hope we can respect how funny/odd we find the position we are in.

I'll be completely upfront with you about the James Schauer thing. One day, about the time I wrote the blog about it, I suddenly was face to face with a document on my screen. It was the standard WHOIS looking page for CT but it had the James Schauer name, the address and the phone number. As soon as I saw it I recognized it for "what it was," a powerful piece of evidence--with absolutely nothing backing it up. Lots of people must have had access to my hard drive. Somebody (do you have enemies?) must have planted it on my computer (Lots and lots of stuff has disappeared off my hard drive. Off hand, I can think of only one or two other "significant" things that have "appeared" out of nowhere onto it.)

So, anyway, it is not very professional of me to go forward with information as vague as I did. However, I thought, if I was doing anybody any harm then I could simply take it down without too much damage. Although the name hasn't gotten much of a rise out of anybody, several little pieces of information have lent some validity to it (like your email here!) I believe James Schauer at that address and phone number was the original registrant of CT. It might have been your roommate, or your colleague, or your brother-in-law--whatever. The name is associated with that Navy guy (just like Tim Timmerman is associated with the Navy photographers club.)

Anything you want me to correct or change just ask and I'll consider it! In the meantime I guess we may have to agree to disagree. I'm going to the library tomorrow to see if it's just me locked out of CT or everybody is now outside the (closed) membership. Boy, you are really having to change the rules of engagement aren't you? That's what I meant about being trouble to you (on a personal level.)

Sincerely, Steven W.

I still dont really post on my messageboard (criticalthrash) any more. Im just not into it. I dont post on bco anymore either because ive learned my lesson about posting personally on public forums. I dont understand how james schauer could have ever shown up under a whois as I was the only one to ever register that domain. i think you may be mistaken there. My phone number at the time was registered under j schauer because that was my fiances name.
I dont care if you change anything on your site. It doesnt bother me if people think im some james schauer. Im way over caring if people believe anything I have to say anymore. Yes you shouldnt be able to get to from anywhere. its not just you. Ive set it up so that you have to be logged in to view anything about the board and ive closed the create a new account link so no one esle can register for the time being.
honestly, i would unban you because i dont care what you do on there i just dont want people mining for information on me to post other places. granted, i havent posted anything new on thier since you were banned but i figure why take the change? you already taught me my lesson.
