I thought that you knew buck through personal communications. I also heard that he was not who he pretended to be. I never pried since I assumed it was all confidential.I take issue with two things. First, I do believe that Buck, whoever he may be, is quite intelligent. Secondly, Buck himself will tell you that he and I had an amicable relationship. Otherwise, your comments are well taken.
The man behind the persona may have been intelligent and have an amicable relationship with you, but I can only address the Internet persona, "Buck". Buck could learn what he wanted to learn, but he didn't seem to want to learn too much that was worthwhile. I found him unteachable.
And his public interaction with you seemed extremely disrespectful to me, in the same manner we have seen in this thread.
