Friction between Jimmy C and Rich Douglas
#1
Jimmy Clifton didn't have to put up with this crap when he ran his own short-lived forum!!! Of course, the active membership was just Jimmy and some bozo who called himself Miguel Stefan and had the Frito Bandito as an avatar. I believe that I may have posted there several times as well. (Just to piss off the late Uncle J, who refused to post in any forum that had any Jamesville/DL Truth poster as a member.)    Cool

I remember that.  Jimmy would edit out the stuff he didn't like, turning a three paragraph post into two incoherent sentences.  I'm glad that doesn't happen around here, or

Doogle used to be a prison guard, and he still sees the world that way.  The Guards must tell the rest of us (The Prisoners) how to act, how to think, what to learn, how to live, etc.  We are all just too stupid to be trusted to do it for ourselves, he thinks.  Pickin' it up here, Boss Rich!  Drinkin' it up here, Boss Rich!  Still shakin' it here, Boss Rich!

The Klones are still grudging on Jimmy for a) taking unaccredited programs, b) going for a PhD and likely stealing their thunder, and c) being a nice guy who doesn't fight back when they kick him while he's down.  They need to get in their last cheap shots at him before he gets his PhD, wakes up and starts kicking back.

They are afraid that the day is coming when some fish wrap needs a quote from an expert, passes on Gollin for being an obvious crackpot, then asks Dr. Jimmy instead.  And Jimmy says something like, "Accreditation is a scam being perpetrated by the wealthy higher education cartel.  I worked harder for my unaccredited degrees than I did for some of the accredited ones."  Oh the humanity!

Jimmy sick but getting better:

Quote:Only a few people at DegreeDiscussion know this but I wanted to share some really good news.

About seven week's ago, I had a mild heart attack and was admitted to the hospital for a week. I have two blocked arteries that cannot be treated because they are small.

At the time of admittance, my cholesterol count was more than 900. My triglyceride count was 5700. My glucose level was 212. I found out I have Type II diabetes while there.

I had blood work done Monday. The results were given me today. The cholesterol level is 110, the triglyceride level is 317, and the glucose level is 94. Additionally, I have lost 16 pounds.

I post this for two reasons. Please do not take your own health for granted. Secondly, I would appreciate your prayers for continued better health.

Thank you.

Of course we wish Jimmy all the best and hope he makes a full recovery.  Umm, has anyone taken Jimmy in the dead pool yet?

A reminder of mortality. Jimmy better stick to the clean living or he will find himself being charbroiled for an eternity with Janko. But then he is a Unitarian turned Bahá'í. Hello Unk. Maybe someone can slip some SPF 100 into his coffin.

I'm moving Jimmy ahead of Bear and Johann in light of his health problems. Personally I hope that DesElms goes first but if banging all those Korean whores in the 80's and 90's didn't result in him contracting a fatal STD, I bet that he'll still be around to witness several more Gus Sainz business failures. Meanwhile those of us who eat right, exercise, restrict our sexual escapades to our spouse, attend church, work everyday and mow our lawn will undoubtedly suffer healt setbacks as we age. DesElms will stay a fat load, continue to marry homos, chase hookers and otherwise just act like an asshole, yet live to a ripe old age. Sad

I was hoping that while you were visiting you might want to offer some commentary on what appears to have been an acrimonious discussion. Jimmy Clifton, along with Bill Grover, have always been among the most civil of posters. Personally I have never had a problem with either while I think that you have "thrown down" with both on more than one occasion. On the other hand, I think that you have been remarkably restrained in your exchanges with Vinny123, someone I consider among the top 3 as far as biggest assholes posting on any DL forum (along with Abner and the sanctimonious Gregg "Elmer" DesElms)


Dr. Neil Hayes Wrote:Honesty and self searching was never one of your virtues. You know exactly which DL Forums I'm talking about since you first commenced your obnoxious comments towards me in 2002! I'm sure you can remember which discussion group that was, and in your 10,000+ posts (that's far more than several life spans for most people) since then I can't recall many where you were not abusing someone.
You are the fake amongst us - with your 3-month PhD that you obtained with the aid of friends and with no graduate or undergrad degree!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Hayes seems to recall a history of harsh exchanges between you and other posters as well, spanning many years and numerous fora.

Oh, my only conflict with Jimmy is that he hates that I'm dismissive of religion based upon its unsupportable nature logically. I really don't care about Jimmy--he decided to hate upon me.

With Vinny, I've tried to address his posts as they've come.

This isn't emotional with me. I often forget that I've tangled with someone. And I don't have a particular axe to grind. But I do have my opinions, and I'm willing to defend them with the information I can gather. I'm just disappointed that some posters have decided to fight my opinions and posted facts with strictly personal attacks. Sometimes, like with Neil Hayes, I've decided to return in-kind. But generally, I'd rather just discuss the issues.

"Doctor" Hayes hates the fact that after he shopped his duck stuff to Trinity College and University (who sold him a Ph.D.), and after he shopped it to Knightsbridge (same result), others have called him on it. This isn't a case of someone working with an unaccredited-but-up-and-coming school. And this isn't a case where someone has stalked the degree-buyer. (What anyone knows about Hayes is what Hayes himself has posted.)

I'd love to discuss the issues passionately without anyone resorting to personal attacks.
