In the end, all we have are our stories. I can still play pool but who knows when that will fade. I prefer to tell stories about people I've known, rather than about myself, but that's just me. I never had anything to do with knockers of any type and they knew better than to come tell me who somebody was. Ergo I have a pretty substantial " beaten by " list.

Now it seems they have been indelibly stamped in my mind but time has proven they are sometimes wrongly remembered. That's just me but I suspect that we all sometimes have incorrect memories without necessarily lying about things intentionally.
I agree with Dennis 100%.
As for "But many, like gulfport doc, just react with unfounded prejudice, and choose to 'shoot the messenger." "That's totally out of line, If you're ashamed of who you are or what you've done, then don't post your name. The reaction by Doc is definitely not unfounded when the poster is anonymous.
