I don't think that anyone here thought you had any ill will toward
Mike George. That's just for starters.
I hope you can see how I and others came to the conclusion that we
did regarding your post. You mentioned nothing about liking the PC,
nothing about attending or returning ever.
I even went so far as to read some of your other posts since you have
been a member, prior to my making any comments about this past post
at all. I did that so that I would not put my foot in my mouth by
making any assumptions. But, none of your other posts said anything
about your being a PC supporter or attendee etc. Therefore, it was
quite reasonable to read your post as nothing but a plug to someone
else with two complaints about PC and no mention of going back to PC.
So, that being said. It is nice to see that you are an attendee on a
fairly regular basis and that you are not only promoting the other
show namely Steel City.
At this time, I think anyone could realize the sensitivity that
Pittsburgh Comicon supporters have, based on the circumstances this
year and the negative campaigning other people have tried to do, like
the letters to guests.
I was just asking to keep within the confines of the description of
this forum which yours did not. So, thanks for clearing that up.
