@codinghorror – I’m happy to roll with whatever time frame you research and come up with – you’re doing way more research on this than I’m interested in doing or have time to mess with. For everyone reading this please read my posts with this disclaimer – I have not gone searching the forums for dates or times for historical accuracy. Take everything I write here with the caveat that it’s based on my memory of incidents that happened a long time ago and that I haven’t, until this week, spent any time thinking about.
I’m also not interested in debating semantics with you or being put to trial for the wording of my internet posts. Read all of this history however you want. What I know is that a good number of people had to put in a fair amount of work to expose that Heath had not donated the money he told everyone he had donated. His options once caught were to say, 1. Yeah, I’m a thief, or, 2. I always intended to donate it, I promise. Which would you choose? None of us know what was or is going on in Heath’s head. None of us can ever know his intentions. But I do know, and you can verify yourself, that even once he was caught, he continued to be deceptive. Call all of this whatever you want. I’m calling it theft.
Your presentation of the options here about how to move forward isn’t even close to exhaustive. Either 1. you accept his hiatus as penance or 2. you don’t believe in redemption aren’t the only options here. Now I’m doing to you what you did to me. This is ridiculous and a waste of time. Like Nathan, I’m gonna take a break from the forum. I’ll return when this has all blown over. Best wishes to you all.
