I haven't checked in here for a few weeks and like many, was in shock to see this thread.

I remember him from the old days when guys like him and Ed Kupifer (?) were elevating the level of discourse in the alt.raps usenet.

I recall with fondness that he always had a sharp, unique and sometimes uncomfortable perspective on things that challenged established narratives and orthodoxies.

If you were to ask me to name 5 memorable personalities from the Raptors RealGm board, his would certainly be on my Mount Rushmore.

This is terrible news. He was a regular and will be missed. RIP.
