I really like Pete and hated to lose him from the board however it's not my place to tell him where to spend his online time. This place is meant to be fun and if it is not for some reason then what's the point. He asked to be deleted from here however I didn't do that (maybe Vinny did, I haven't checked). I still plan on hooking up with him at tailgates and didn't take anything personally. Pete and aj are amongst my favorite fans to tailgate with.
I never deleted him and I told everyone in the mod forum that I wouldn't delete him just because he doesn't like me (Pete requested an account deletion). I have nothing against Pete although I get plenty of unkind words my way from him on an ongoing basis over the years. I'm certainly not perfect and I've tried to take some responsibility for anything in the past (this all started around 2002-2003).
Pete jammed up his account by inserting a bogus email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) that can't be verified when he got mad (the system will not allow unverified email account changes - it takes your account into a pending user group....he is the one who made his account unaccessible - nobody here did). He is not banned (never was)...and he isn't unwelcome here as far as I'm concerned. All he needs to do to post is change his email address to something the system can verify.
