There is nothing in the FUA that says you cannot compliment another member so I am doing nothing wrong here Thommo
And yes I remember him saying he would help you out KIR at Christmas. So that was very kind of him especially as he was under no obligation to. For this was a genuinely altruistic act and my estimation of him went up when he did that for you

Oh please don't make me be the bad guy again. Firstly there is no such thing as a truly altruistic act and secondly, if he had wanted to he could have PMed KIR with his offer.

He did! I'm just certain he wasn't trying to look good by what he did fal and I think you've made an honest mistake by getting that impression, as we all do from time to time.

I think you are being unfair to him there Fall. It was common knowledge he would help out KIR because he
posted it on the forum not by PM but this does not mean he was doing it for ulterior motive. He simply did
what had to be done. You really should know that james does not do things just for the sake of popularity

Um...well no I don't think it is OK, but my comment was not meant to suggest that he never PMed you. It was meant to suggest that he could have exclusively PMed you. You can either be an Elton John or a George Michael. Both generous, but we only found out about one of them after they were dead.

All he (allegedly) said was that he was going to help me out. The fact he did, and that it was so generous, was entirely disclosed by me.

I haven't misrepresented anything and you haven't explained anything, because neither of you seem to have understood my point. Please don't tell me to 'let it go' - things are disagreed about every day here. What is the difference between me thinking someone is talking shit about God and pointing out how, and thinking someone is talking shit about brutal honesty and pointing out how? I haven't seen brutal honesty in the posts I have read. I have seen hubris, word salad and frankly on one or two occasions very irresponsible advice which could even be described as dangerous.

There's no point saying that or not. If the mods investigate, they can see your PMs anyway.

At the risk of repeating myself, discussion of posters rather than posts is not a good idea and tends not to go well. At best this is all wildly off topic. I suggest we all agree that James did a really nice thing, should have a pat on the back for that, and let it go.

As far as I know james has only done this once in his time here. One time in eight years he helps another member
Other members knew about it but it was not done for ulterior motive. This is a total non story. So please let it go

KIR introduced generosity. If you think that's a non-issue, you should have mentioned it to him. You don't get to say whatever you like and then demand others stop disagreeing with you. As for motive, you have absolutely no idea.

You have been exposed to very brutal honesty by james relatively recently and which was completely
bang out of order but now you apparently cannot remember it even though I can. And he is on record
as saying that for him truth comes before everything else. Which is about as brutally honest as it gets
