    I get that you get tired of answering the same question many times when the topic has been brought up multiple times before but not every reader reads EVERY sentence of EVERY post on the site.
    That wasn't my problem with him. If you disagreed with him on a subject he could get very nasty. As far as he was concerned his opinion was gospel and you don't dare disagree with him. I got tired of that very quickly.

    You have that right, and you know what you are not missing much the last post is his goodbye post from May 30th, and that is what it will look for the foreseeable future until if/when he does return. Whatever that is going on in his personal life that is keeping him for posting news stories as often, he is keeping it private unlike Nick Digilio that doesn't seem to have a private life.

    Yea, there were a couple times I wanted to tell him to stick it, but I figured the repercussions weren't worth it.

    No, not missing much, but you do have a following, you could at least say, in general terms "due to health problems...", "due to family problems...", etc, and leave it kind of general, most people would've understood.

    I am sure, I could send you the post, but I don't think you would care to really see the post, and as far as I can remember I never told him that I disagreed with his opinion, but from what you have been saying, what did he have against people having their own opinion, even if they didn't agree with them. The whole world would be boring if everybody agreed on everything. And I think what also would upset him, if somebody would complain about a show host that they claim to hate, and even particular on WGN Radio. And he would often reply back "if you don't like it, don't listen", which I do agree with him 100%.

    I liked the site, but he would delete your post if you so much as mentioned Robert Feder. What was that all about, any way?

    Don't know the details, but Mr Feder really let him have it at one time.

    Don't know either this is the first I have heard or read of this, if you can contact him, you should ask I'm but it sounds like he considered him his rival

    But I can recall an occasion not all that long ago when Rob Feder gave him a nice shout out congratulations. Me? I liked the site. I didn't take everything I read there as gospel, but a lot of what was there turned out to be accurate. I didn't go there all that often.....maybe 2-3 times a month....but you can still count me among those who will miss it.

    I read his posting on both the CRM site as well as the facebook page.

    He was purely abrasive if you disagreed with him OR you asked a question about something that he had posted in an update he made a week prior.

    Some of it, I would lay blame on the layout of his message forum. It wasn't a layout like this place, or other UBB/VBB message forum like software. So a news story he posted 1 week prior to your question, does get buried. So not everyone would go back and read everything...

    I do understand in some circumstances when people would constantly bash WGN's programming choices, their on-air talent, etc, etc... That it was getting old. But as with anything, there are more "constructive" ways to make your point.

    While I guess it is a good thing that i have never told him I disagreed with him on anything as far as I can recall. And well even if you did you have a problem, as the whole website is his brain child, and there would be nobody higher up that you could go to complain to, so you be out of luck. But you are right not everybody reads everything, I sure hate to think what would have been like if he was a doctor and lost his patience. There are just people that claim to hate any of their shows host like Steve Cochran for example, but would just keep complaining, best way to do it is turn it off and find something else, WGN Radio is not the only station in town, and plus a lot of radio stations stream even online, whether they are or not a Chicago radio station.
