Beware of this guy

Until recently I had never met this guy on the air or otherwise.

Now for NO reason I can't fathom he seems to have some sort of problem with me.

I have never had any interactions with him on the air or in person. I have searched my logs and he isn't even in my log book. Until last month I never even heard of the guy.
I suspect that it has something to do with my voice, or the fact that I have volunteered as  net control on the Trans Canada DMR net. The DMR Trans Canada net is a public service net dedicated to testing and training. Seems this is enough to invoke his wrath.

This is a shame, as I have never met a fellow ham operator who is not friendly and helpful. This most definitely not the case here.

He now is attacking me and maligning me every chance he gets.

Why he dislikes me I can only guess. I have discreetly asked around and it would appears that he has been known to attack anyone who so much as speaks to anyone he considers his enemy.

His M.O. is to post in every blog he can, messages that certain people are engaging in hate crimes. He like to come off  an innocent nice guy that has been the subject of hate crimes, and then proceed to attack anyone on his own hate list, which must be massive.

 Luckily they are few and far between. These personalities are normally found on the GRS band.

 It has always been my policy to completely ignore LIDS that I sometimes come across on the air.
 I am only writing this as many of my friends have warned me about these posts and on air comments that have been left about me and others.

It is truly too bad that Toronto Amateur Radio is descending to such levels

Take a close look at the picture above and decide for your self.

To all my friends, thanks for the support and see you down the log.

thanks, to author Sam14

    So cause all the trouble JAMMING on FM analog and DMR as he is a HATER and everyone moves to DSTAR.

    It is almost brilliant, no trash on DSTAR why? because a dog does not shit in its own yard.

    no trash on DSTAR because he is only jamming on the frequencies he has hate on or he dislikes, DMR anything that is on his HATE list he will obstruct.

    Ever hear this guy on the air? All he talks about is pizza and popeyes chicken and he should take his fat 300 lb body, his cigarettes and his diabetes wheelchair and go play on the york region repeater. No one cares about pizza except him. Tfm should kick him off the repeater and do it now.
