begain nicely with me.
I offered to help him figure out who had written what on his website, so he
could give proper credit where it is due. In the articles he stole without
permission from other websites.
But Jim hasn't replied.
I have lately asked that he removed my material from his website.
The [what's another word for 'dickhead'?] hasn't replied.
So it's time to take this to the next level.
What he is doing on his site is against
geocities - angelfire - yahoo
user policies (the webiste is spread out among all these yahoo outlets).
I'll have some fun seeing if anything can be done here with Yahoo (All Hail
WoTC won't be please to hear that he's got their published material loaded on
his site. Also Aftermath material, Dragon material, other MPG material, lots of
official published stuff on "his" site.
This guy told me
"A lot of different people have contributed, not just myself. Did you click on
of the pics there? I added neat Java pop-ups to most of them."
What an asshole.
Next thing he'll be pressing cds of this stuff.

versions of the Gamma World rules (1st and 3rd
edition)and the exact copy (down to the artwork) of
The New West's cybernetics rules. I emailed him about
the GW rules and he said that he would do something
about it. That was a week ago and nothing has changed.

It's entirely taken from elsewhere.
You can find just about all of that stuff by surfing the gamma world net
- So what is to come of this? We have info from all over on this guys site (my stuff
included) and he has the balls to call you a f*ck? I don't get it.
It costs you nothing to call...It could cost you a fortune not to!
