Posted By: <b>Joe</b><p>Leon,<br /><br />I am a former lawyer, so I thought I would give you my thoughts. It sounds like if you don't have the right guy, the Gilliam family now would have a lot more ammo to sue you for posting their personal information with no due process than you would have for suing Billy. Saying vulgar things about people is cruel, but as long as it didn't cause you substantial monetary harm that you can prove, or threaten you, unfortunately that speech is not illegal. Email me if you want to discuss this further, Joe.

Posted By: <b>Jon Canfield</b><p>Leon - actually you are correct. I only saw the posts from the other day and since I don't know what was said this morning (as it was deleted before I saw it), I really should not say anything at all.<br /><br />That being said, I was only commenting on IIED of requires extreme and outrageous conduct causing the plaintiff severe emotional distress. Pretty high bar...

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>Well, Jon, do you have a daughter? I'm assuming you're suggesting that there is no proof of emotional distress suffered by Leon.<br /><br />More to the point, I suspect that the guy who posted this crap is not sitting back and laughing as some would suggest; I'm guessing he has probably soiled his diaper instead.

Posted By: <b>McCormick</b><p>Where do you get this nonsense from dan? you sure know how to antagonize someone.<br /><br />Courts in most jurisdictions take a decidedly unfavorable stance towards IIED claims. It is felt that they are generally frivolous claims for non-quantifiable harm, and often are appended to other more substantive claims merely as an afterthought. Meeting the element of conduct that is so outrageous as to be beyond the bounds of civilized society is extremely difficult, and consequently most claims fail.

Posted By: <b>Rhett Yeakley</b><p>McCormick, why do we HAVE to put this behind us, just because you want us to? The stuff this Billy guy said was pretty close to what is quoted above, did you actually see what he wrote? Whoever said this 25 year old was a kid was rediculous, The guy has been an adult for a long time and should know better. As the father of a daughter, I don't know if I would be as forgiving as Leon is being. <br /><br />This guy made his bed, and now he has to sleep in it. I'm just not sure what your beef is here? You seem to be taking anything directed at this sicko somewhat personally.<br />-Rhett

This punk did not just come here once and then go away. He Hijacked somebodys account and said horrible disgusting things about a child. He should be taught a lesson! He's 25 years old! He's not a kid anymore and he needs to learn that threre are real repercussions to the type of behavior he displayed here! If it were my daughter he spoke of, I'd run a white hot icepick up his pee pee hole and then get mad. Not only is he an internet troll but, a very disturbed individual. You can NEVER be to careful when children are brought into the mix. I feel that an admission of guilt and a solemn promise in writing to never come to this board again is a good start followed by a public letter of apology and a promise to seek counseling. Proof of counseling should be provided. Anything less and I have an icepick you can borrow. <br /> <br /> <br />Mr Mcormick has forgotten that he can control his mouse and read only threads pertaining to cards.

Not as much time as you took to find it on the internet. HAHAHA all i said was to drop this nonsense. you are like trying to find out clues like a detective now. you said "your sure" what billy thinks. Grow up child and stop acting like billy. Leon will do whatever he thinks is needed. In my opionion he is wasting his time, just like your wasting your own.

Posted By: <b>Joe</b><p>I am not sure where you guys see the connection? The rapper threatened to track down the daughter and even offered a cash reward for information. Saying you had sex with someone is inappropriate but Leon will find when he calls the Reno police department that without an explicit threat like made in the article no investigation will even be launched. Do you want to meet back here this time tomorrow and we will see how far Leon got?

So lets just move on from this and stop giving the prankster what he wants. Don't you people think he is home reading this garbage right now laughing that he got such a rise out of all of you? I know i was a kid at one point who loved to get a rise out of people. When people keep going it gives the hoodlum his satisfaction. enough is enough.

You and MB3 or “MBrocks” Mr. XTREME golf come out of nowhere to post your thoughts on the subject….I’ve been posting here for years never seen you guys. So please tell me out of all the topics discussed here on the (and I stress) “VINTAGE BASEBALL CARD FORUM” did this one speak to you guys to speak up.<br /><br />Just seems like an odd topic to jump on from the shadows of lurking being the huge collectors and baseball card fans, to play devil’s advocate to the vulgar vile stuff that was typed about a man’s 12yr old little girl…<br /><br /><br />P.S. Will everyone stop saying 25yrs old is a kid...

I never sided with anyone. i made that clear in my 1st couple posts. I said I was simply stating my opinion which Leon agreed with. WHY WASTE YOUR TIME? We are all adults here and have lives. This is rediculous that someone sick as "Billy" is able to even get a rise out of so many people and such attention. reason why i said to just drop it.

Posted By: <b>John</b><p>No need to skirt the question with sarcasm besides you bringing sarcasm to me is like bringing a knife to a gun fight. <br /><br />I asked a fair question why of all the interesting and even controversial topics on this forum do you pop up out of the blue to tell everyone to relax about vulgar sexual remarks made about someone’s child, and then have the stones to tell us to grow up that a 25yr old is just a kid and he can’t help it let it go. When a 9yr old drops the F-bomb because he heard big brother say it…it’s cute. When a 25yr old man makes the remarks this guy did it becomes not cute and downright reportable IMO clear enough for you genius…<br />

Posted By: <b>Brian McQueen</b><p><br />Funny how every time someone gets in trouble on the board, from Peter Chao, to the present, we always seem to get this sudden "membership spike" here on our humble board. And, almost as humorous, is the fact that all these brand new members just happen to take the side of said troublemaker and appear so set in their convictions too! <br /><br />So what have we got so far? Well, we've got Billy Gilliam, with an Email address of bgilliam83@hotmail.com<br /><br />Then along came a former lawyer named Joe with an email address of bigrebel83@yahoo.com.<br /><br />Couldn't you have at least removed the "83" from your email address? We all know what year you were born at this point. Wow, never ran into a 25 year old FORMER lawyer before. <br /><br />Let's see, who else...oh...SMcormick@gmail.com. Ok, so you finally took the "83" out for the account you created through gmail, terrific.<br /><br />Did I miss any? What, no AOL account?<br /><br />Very amusing. Billy, I like the way you're using all your new aliases to have conversations with each other. That's really neat and creative...<br /><br />Leon, I wish you the best of luck tomorrow. Whatever you can do on your end, I hope you do it.<br /><br /><br /><br />

Just pitiful. And as your "friends" implored after you had been caught; we did not waste any time on you; just ignored your rambling ignorant nonsense. Accept whatever punishment is coming your way, get some help for whatever problems you may have on the tax-payers tab, and leave us alone.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>It's very unfortunate that this Billy Gilliam, who now appears to be posting under various names, has hijacked the board to such a degree that very little else has been discussed here lately. It makes me think that it is time for Leon to consider updating the software, or perhaps even making it difficult for a stranger to post here so freely (similar to that other board that is more secretive than the Stone Cutters).<br /><br />We are a free chat board that allows anyone to register and log in, and all free forums are subject to this kind of internet terrorism, for lack of a better term. Soon we may get copycat posters, and eventually our whole community will suffer for it.

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>The funniest part is how Gilliam thought that he could convince the board that "Joe" and "McCormick" were just two lurkers who have never posted on the board -- until now when they came out in support of not turning in a hopeful-pedophile to authorities. The 'former lawyer' bit was funny as well as the Wiki cut and paster. But the reverse psychology angle, that Billy was laughing instead of shaking in his boots -- good stuff too. Billy reminds me of one of those WWF wrestlers from the early 70s who, after hitting the good guy over the head with a chair when his back was turned would then be on his knees begging for forgiveness when the good guy turned around and slowly advanced towards the attack. Of course as soon as the good guy hesitated for a second the bad guy threw salt in his eyes.

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>This is a Federal crime that now has to do with a potential pedophile, based on what was put on the board. The Reno police might get involved but there are several other agencies involved at this point also. And all of this is besides the legal council in Dallas that is being sought to file Federal Civil charges. I think Billy is going to find out what he has done is very wrong, very soon......

Posted By: <b>Brian</b><p>Huckleberry (plant)<br />From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia<br />Jump to: navigation, search<br />For other uses, see Huckleberry.<br /> <br />Wild huckleberry in the Mount Hood National Forest. The floral remnants, signifying a false berry, are visible on the apex of the fruit.Huckleberry is a name used in North America for several plants in two closely related genera in the family Ericaceae: Gaylussacia and Vaccinium. The Huckleberry is the state fruit of Idaho.<br /><br />While some Vaccinium species, such as the Red Huckleberry, are always called huckleberries, other species may be called blueberries or huckleberries depending upon local custom. Usually, the distinction between them is that blueberries have numerous tiny seeds, while huckleberries have 10 larger seeds (making them more difficult to eat).<br /><br />Note that there is much confusion in naming of berries in American English. The 'garden huckleberry' (Solanum melanocerasum) is not considered to be a true huckleberry but a member of the nightshade family.<br /><br />The fruit of the various species of plant called huckleberry is generally edible. The berries are small and round, usually less than 5 mm in diameter, and contain 10 relatively large seeds. Berries range in color according to species from bright red, through dark purple, and into the blues. In taste the berries range from tart to sweet, with a flavor similar to that of a blueberry, especially in blue/purple colored varieties. Huckleberries are a favorite of many mammals such as bears and humans.<br /><br /> <br />Bog Huckleberry at Polly's Cove, Nova ScotiaIn the Pacific Northwest of North America, the huckleberry plant can be found in mid-alpine regions, often on the lower slopes of mountains. The plant grows best in damp, acidic soil. Under optimal conditions, huckleberries can be as much as 1.5-2 m (about 5-6.5 feet) high, and usually ripen in mid-to-late summer; later at higher elevations.<br /><br />Huckleberries hold a place in archaic English slang. The tiny size of the berries led to their frequent use as a way of referring to something small, often in an affectionate way. The phrase "a huckleberry over my persimmon" was used to mean "a bit beyond my abilities". "I'm your huckleberry" is a way of saying that one is just the right person for a given job,[1] which was used by the character Doc Holliday in the movie Tombstone. The Huckleberry Railroad is a heritage train located in Flint, Michigan. It ran so slowly that it was said a person could jump off the train, pick huckleberries and jump back on the train with minimum effort. [2]<br />

Posted By: <b>Brandon Brown</b><p>One mans' humor is another mans' hot-button issue. Growing up with a disability, I have been able to overlook abject stupidity of others, who intentionally mean to hurt peoples' feelings. When you are dealing with a society that hasnt been exposed to those sort of things (the type of issues dealt with in that post) it makes people uncomfortable, whereas someone who has been around people with disabilities, and heard all sorts of jokes and whatnot throughout my life, it doesnt phase me anymore. I appologise to those who I offended! NOW LETS GET BACK TO CARDS PEOPLE!!!!<br /><br />Brandon

Posted By: <b>MB3</b><p>To those wondering why i posted my comments let me make it very clear. I do not know anyone from here. I enjoy baseball cards and most of the time i go right to the t-card post board. I have purchased T-206 cards on here and will continue doing so. I was told about this site from a very honest and also high end collector as a alternative to e-bay, his collection would be in the millions dollar wise. The reason for my posts is very simple, i thought this was a baseball card message board and not like every other site where the subject at hand always get pushed aside and then conversations turn into drama such as threats,ridicule,and confrontational situations. I am the type of guy that tries to break up fights not start them. My comments were made only to try and help Leon not let a individual get under his skin. MB3

Posted By: <b>Kyle</b><p>Hi Brandon,<br /><br />I knew there was a deeper meaning to your post, hence my hesitation to post something more blunt and potentially, well rude. I've come to learn not everyone on this board has the worst of intentions, some just need a little kick in the ass to realize what is worth posting, and what isn't. Your willingness to remove the image immediately scores you points in my book. Thank you, much appreciated.<br /><br />Have a great rest of your night, rest of your week and soon to be... your weekend!<br /><br />Regards,<br />-Kyle<br /><br /><br /><br />

When a person has opened for Marilyn Manson on several occasions they do not have to think they are extreme or hardcore it is just a given, LMFAO because i am quite sure that you two individuals would probably stand at the back of the building near the exit once the first guitar chord was struck.

Posted By: <b>MB3</b><p>I also will state for the record that i never saw Billy's post so i did not know what he said about Leon's daughter or how old she was. I really came onto the main page because i have a baseball photograph that is the only one in the world to exist and was going to post it and try to get some insight and possibly sell it here and just noticed the Leon thread. After seeing how things have gone down over the past two days this place is way to cheesy and self righteous for me. Leon you and Dan might want to get out of the baseball card business and possibly consider a job in law enforcement.

Posted By: <b>MB3</b><p>Dan....the photo is just the beginning. I just recently slabbed 250 t-206 cards and bought another collection that had 640 raw ones of which most will grade between 5 and 7. My goal was to sell them on this site and give the true t-card collector a chance at getting them without having to worry about being schill bidded against. My photo is turn of the century and i have contacted two museums and both were astounded that one survived. The photo also has several famous people in the stands and there photographs are highly sought after because not many survived. I thought that perhaps instead of sending it to Robert Edwards or Mastro that i would try and figure it's worth here because my friend told me this sight had the deepest collectors on the planet. After the drama over the past few days i am going to reconsider and the only reason i am still here is because i have made a few purchases from people and am waiting for the cards to arrive once they do rest assured i am ****ing out of this joint.

Posted By: <b>MB3</b><p>Want to see who is full of it there bottom? How about we make a friendly wager of oh about 25k which can be put in escrow that i can produce the cards and photo. I enjoy gambling and i am not the type to bs about the items i have especially when i dropped over 30k to purchase the last lot of t-cards. I currently own over 50 tin types and pre 1900 baseball photos that i have aquired from my travels playing golf all over the country the past ten years. Most folks at small town antique shops have no idea what items are worth so they just do not understand what a baseball tintype is worth, when i am not practicing i generally seek these places out and also attend auctions. Let me make it real easy on you, i'll just bet you 5k that i have the photo and when you accept the bet i'll let you talk to the two museum curators and also send you a image. Then we will see if you want to wager on whether or not i have the cards.

Yeah folks have never heard of eBay or the internet. Wow smart, a rock god, and an XTREME golfer, are you also a Navy Seal/CIA agent...and Astronaut.<br /><br />"When a person has opened for Marilyn Manson on several occasions they do not have to think they are extreme or hardcore it is just a given"<br /><br />Yeah you're right popular music is so scary today, I just want to stay home and listen to my Glenn Miller albums...speaking of which "extreme" and "hardcore"...LOL what other buzz words are you planning on pulling out "Dope", "The Bomb", "Word"... MB 1997 called their missing some words from the yawn vault.<br /><br />Somehow I think you're not the real MBrocks... at least I hope guys who open for Manson don't always sound so sad and whinny...<br /><br />"and the only reason i am still here is because i have made a few purchases from people and am waiting for the cards to arrive once they do rest assured i am ****ing out of this joint."<br /><br />Boo hoo I'm going to take my ball and go home..boo...hoo...hoo..God you can't even leave in an XTREME way. <br /><br />P.S. Cash in escrow Billy, wow 30k is almost like 50yrs allowance to you, and if you are the famous MB3 I think it's safe to say we know the money's not coming from your huge golf purses. Looks like from 2006's numbers you'll be about 24k short of the bet, I hope 2007 and 2008 and have been more XTREME in payouts.<br />

Posted By: <b>MB3</b><p>John.... since you are to cool for school then why don't you cut all the talk and put your money where your mouth is. Contact me via my website and then i will write you back and you will see that this is not a imposter. I played pretty well in 06 considering i played half the season with a torn ribcage before it got so serious that i had to rest the entire 07 season. I must be able to play since i shot 68 at US Open qualifying and won the event while injured. I also made two cuts while injured and missed qualifying for the Nationwide tour event by one shot in New York while only being able to swing 70%. In response to your assumption about antique shop owners watching the road show and e-bay here is where you are wrong. Most people just figure a tintype is worth between 100 to 300 and do not figure out who the player is on the tintype. If i were you and you seem like such a tough guy with that chilly willy wonka five year old mindset that likes to call people down then do so. If i thought a guy was bogus or just talking **** then i would shut him up by putting my money where my mouth is because real men bet money. I really do not want to reveal any of my baseball items because after seeing how the people on this board act i would never put a item for sale on here. There are a couple of members who know i just bought some t-206 cards from them via the pay-pal route and that i am waiting for them to arrive, one of them has even posted comments during this whole billy situation. Here is a tintype i own of General Custer and to his right is a african american soldier, the tintype is worth around 5 to 8 thousand and i purchased it in the parking lot of a antique store when a gentleman who had a booth in the store sold me a baseball tintype and said he had a few with soldiers in them at the house. He had no idea what Custer looks like. Let me know how much you want to lose and i will produce the goods.<img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1218619747.JPG">

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>MB3- I have been buying and selling tintypes for about twenty years and have seen and handled hundreds of them. Maybe I have positively identified a ballplayer on two or three of them.<br /><br />Just curious, who are some of the ballplayers you have identified of which the antique dealers were unaware? <br /><br />You also mentioned you bought a collection of 640 T206, most which would grade between 5 and 7. Sounds like a collection worth in the vicinity of a million dollars. Wish I could find something like that, and retire on it. Could you fill us in on some details? Thank you.

Oh, and you should love Alice, he plays golf, but probably not as XTREMELY as you. Since, obviously, you are taken to the 3rd power.<br /><br />Sorry, hardslick, but Marilyn is NOT nearly hard enough for me. Too damn radio friendly, chief. I will be happy to accompany you to some shows where your stupid Penguin polo will be shoved down your throat. Penguin...remember when it was Munsingwear...now it just seems to be Mansonwear.

Take your <i>amazing</i> collection of mens pictures and stuff them where the sun don't shine -cuz noone here give's a rat's ass. Ya see, It's not what is in your collection that earns respect. How you creeps avoided being sucker'd in high school eludes me!<br /><br />Too many of these confrontational posts lately. Leon, Speaking for myself here, but I wouldn't mind seeing a born on date with our IDs. Just to keep track of the new-age egotists with internet-induced cajones. Also, would help in knowing which threads to ignore. Perhaps it's time?<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>I am with you on seeing some more stuff, and as our friend little Billy said, our s/w is somewhat antiquated. But ya know what? The more I seen in upgrades and how newer s/w works I am not sure our tried and true KISS s/w isn't pretty darn good. <br /><br />MB3- the folks on this site have known each other for many, many years. The core group are almost like family. Going back to our previous board I have been on it 9 yrs. Many others have been on it that long too...and a very few about a yr longer, which was the inception of the original board. Some of our board members have known each other for 30 or more years. Most of us are fairly mature (really) regular ole family folks. I have nothing against you personally but you are fairly new here and as such aren't known too well. It looks like you are a golfer and a pretty good one. Kudo's for that. It looks like you "roll" your own way. I have been "rolling" for about 10 yrs longer than you have been alive. But that's a whole nuther story <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>. We need to get together and have a few beers if you want to talk extreme. Cold warfare training in Korea in the USMC was extreme. Living the other side of Miami vice for several years was extreme. Many things we do are extreme....Heck, a lot of us are addicted to our little cards....which is mostly better than some other addictions and could be considered extreme. So I say...sit back, take it easy....enjoy our board if you want to...and if you don't want to it's ok too. I appreciate your thoughts on little Billy. Maybe someday when you have a little daughter you will understand why just letting this go is not a good thing...also, little Billy needs to learn this lesson...Just like a lot of us have had life's learning lessons in the past. I will be talking to one of his University's internet security people today and then call back one of their Regents with an update. I expect a federal agency to be involved today too...Maybe you are unaware but little Billy has been disrupting our board for quite some time. Now he gets to learn from it....If I can ever help you let me know....best regards

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>Lately we've had a number of newbies come onto the board not with the intention of assimilating into our community, but instead to anatgonize it. They aren't here to share or learn, but to derail intelligent conversations. I don't have a plan to correct this but it is something the board needs to address. There seems to be less discussion about baseball cards than there should be.<br /><br />And yes Joann, we already have many Bruces; now MP3 wants to outBruce Bruce.

Posted By: <b>Bottom of the Ninth</b><p>Barry<br /><br />It is very simple. Ignore. Don't reply. All of which is in our collective control. The site will be here for those who want to use it or misuse it. It is up to those of us who want to keep it focused to exercise restraint and simply do nothing. Seems so simple yet it does not get done. Don't need any fancy software or a private site, like LTS. You want to talk cards, then do so. Time for people to take responsibility and resit the temptation to get into it with guys who are here to just fool around.<br /><br />Greg

In fact it was you who eluded that you would never stoop to that level. Well you did and over what me teasing you about your golf game, or your pseudo extreme persona.
