Nick’s Mother….
Thu Jul 28, 20:54

I received several messages asking about the above topic. Many readers were not on this board many years ago when Nick had a very public meltdown after some professional historians confronted him per his claimed research.

Nick later made an apology posting as “Nick’s mother” indicated that her son has been dealing with some mental health issues and possibly has been off his medication.

One of our computer geeks later did a keyboard analysis of the ‘Nick’s mother’ post and determined that the keyboard characteristics were identical to Nick’s post.

As a side bar to the above, Nick later became a co-host of the now defunct
“I hate Allen Barra discussion forum”

This was a very bizarre, short lived discussion board.

To Allen’s credit, he took it in good humor and suggested selling coffee cups and t-shirts with the new forum’s logo.

            And YOU tamed it! A lot of old names not on the board anymore. A lot of new ones though. The old west lives on. Well done, BJ!

              I just do the cleaning up and occasionally flush the toilet. The many historians who take time to share their research and publications are the people who have made this board historically significant.... more
