    I'd heard rumors about this type of behavior via friends in Miami, but I never believed it until now.

    I, for one, believe "the bullet". I'm not one for kicking a man while he's down, but I had enough negative experiences with the guy -- anger management stuff -- that I'm not surprised. At all.

    Shain's a whole different ballgame. It's a travesty if he goes. Never knew Sarah.

    Is there anyone else, at least on some level, a little bit uneasy about annonymous posters trashing someone -- based on a personal conversation in an office -- on a message board?

    I'm not saying the story is true or it isn't because I have no idea -- the problem I have is the only name being thrown around in this story is Mike Phillips so we have no idea of ever knowing if it really did happen......

    Shain is the best. Writes well, writes clean, never a problem.

    Probably three others at the Herald that should go before Jeff Shain.

    Shain always did everything they asked of him, and that can't be said about some of the others. Guy always knows how to do everything that is expected from him: Gamer, side story, notes, other stuff.

    You call him up, he says this: "What more can I give you? Anything you need."

    That is Jeff Shain.

    And yet don't you, Zag, have a record on this site for being a total dick at times?

    Couldn't agree more.

    There is a huge difference between two annonymous people on a message board calling each other dickheads, jackasses and shit for brains and one annoymous person sharing an alleged personal story about a real person based on a private conversation and using the other person's name but not his own.

    The two are not remotely close to being the same.

    If you can't understand the difference, I can't help you.

    And for the record it is not "at times" it is all the time....

    Get it right, jackass..... ;D

    I wouldn't have had the guts to post that account. But I have reason -- many reasons, actually -- to believe it. All I'm sayin'.

    I'm not sayin' I'm glad to see him go. A little piece of me dies with every layoff, actually, no matter who it is.

    You misunderstand.

    I don't doubt the story, I have no reason to believe it or doubt it because I don't know any of the people involved.

    I'm just questioning whether it is a good thing that one of the people in the story has been identified -- and thus his credibility and reputation is on the firing line -- and the other person is not.

    Thanks for the clarification, Dick.
