Ben Gardner kd7bcw

and his Group of the ‘morally superior’!

I guess Big Ben does not do much reading or he would have seen on multiple bumper stickers that the morally superior are neither!

But that’s not here nor there. The fact is that Big Ben seems to be sliding into some kind of fantasy (not to mention psychotic – see later paragraphs) state without his lord and boss handy 24/7.

Ben has actually informed the members of his Group that anyone caught fraternizing with HIS enemies, the morally inferior, according to Ben’s not too sound judgment, will be banned from his list. Worse yet, he would no longer consider them friends.

Well, I would have Grudged this matter sooner, but it took me awhile to stop laughing, and as soon as I did, some other little ‘tidbit’ of this fiasco would surface, and I’d be he-hawing again!

First, it IS Ben’s Group; he can make, and enforce any ‘rules’ he chooses. Though it would be nice if he’d chose ‘sane’ rules and regulations. Perhaps even rules he could enforce without listening to 3840 surreptitiously, to ‘gather evidence’ of disloyalty. If this is not paranoid behavior, I do not know what is. (Every night that I listen now, I think of Ben skulking out there in silence. It just makes my day!)

Second, what makes Big Ben think that the members of HIS Group are his friends? Most of these people are no more Ben’s friends than calling a prostitute a girl friend would be. This is delusional thinking on Ben’s part.

Third, whatever possessed Ben to issue such a dictum? Was it the need for power and control, latent dictator tendencies, or orders from artie? Perhaps he learned these egomaniacal techniques of ministering to the flock of the loop from his master? Or maybe Ben just likes the sensation of power.

Fourth, back to paranoid – the man is really going over the edge; hackers, moles, enemies behind every email! He has notified ‘personnel’ to investigate! (This one is especially funny! What friggen ‘personnel’? Orv?) Hackers? What self respecting Hacker would want to read all that drivel about policies, politics, and gas prices? Ben has also made some changes within the group roster, and security; what the hell, does he think he is heading up a department for Microsoft or the Federal Government? And the changes? Several people have told him where to stick it and left the group - guess they just were not ‘good’ folks! Some others may have been booted.

This leaves us with the PARTICIPANTS of the BCW list. I have never understood the NEED of many HAMS to belong to this second-hand, exclusive, ‘artie’ group, of ‘self-strokers’ led by this bumbling (insert noun). This includes people who are otherwise intelligent, open-minded, true participants in their hobby, if not ‘morally superior’.

Hopefully, they have probably all joined HamFanz by now, where they can voice any opinion (other than violence!), they care too...
