I met G-khan on the G-E forum at a time when we were both just beginning to get the word out on the manipulation of gold and silver. We both joined GATA and would post information on the G-E site. Old man Veronsky - the co owner of the site - began giving us a hard time and eventually forced us to stop posting GATA information. Kahn was getting pushed around and Veronsky threatened to kick him off of the site. I subsequently posted that I would quit if Khan got tossed. BOOM... I got booted. V then told Khan that he would not get kicked off however, Khan having seen me get canned refused to return unless I was reinstated. V didn't like that and kicked Khan out.
Next thing I know an email comes in from G-khan and Scorpio asking me if I would like to "join the party" and with a few more additions GIM was born.
May all living beings have happiness and the causes of happiness; May all living beings be free from misery and the causes of misery; May all living beings never be separated from boundless joy; May all living beings abide in equanimity free from grasping and aversion.
Hall of Fame ought to stop with Russ and the other founders.....and Gpond...IMHO.
They did the work in the early years....and the rest of us have merely kept a rolling ball rolling.
"Fiat money is the child of the arrogance of human intellect, which has sought to invalidate the laws of human nature which have regarded the precious metals as money for thousands of years, and sought to substitute an intellectual construct for the real thing. Now we are going to pay for that arrogance." Hugo Salinas Price
