Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
It would seem my good buddy Bill Ryan is under attack (again) by Charles Carroll.  I'm not sure what provoked it, but it sure makes for interesting reading.

edit: It would seem we have an update now.

Here's the thing.  Bill's a good guy. He's brilliant and a friend, a really good one, and the sort of guy that will definitely hit you back but rarely throws the first punch. He's helped me out of more than one bad situation and I trust him implicitly. He's got my back and I have his. Just not in the Dumbledore sense of the word.

This other guy, I don't know a damn thing about, except for all the insane vitriol I see posted on the web either by him or about him. Either way, not a pretty picture.

The thing is, this is hardly the first time this has happened. Seems odd timing that everything would be quiet for so long and then pop up right before a certain someone's MVP renewal.

Most of the time in a dispute, it takes two to tango. This time, I think Charles just lost it. Many people question his sanity and if you remember the old Aspfriends days, his erratic behavior was well known. He was sitting on an empire - built by the hard work of others but that he was smart enough to get them to do early on and just destroyed it overnight. Of course, he's done nothing wrong, http://www.learnasp.com/aspfriends/msfiasco/ - but he never does anything wrong. The thing is, he's made a lot of enemies. Until recently, I considered myself one of htem. He's lied up and down about me. He and Doug Nelson told a really skewed distortion about me (whever I posted the threatening email Charles sent me) and tried to get me kicked out of the program. He's made up so much crap it's hard to follow. But people convinced me he was mentally ill and too much of a loser to deal with. After some recent tragedies in his life, I just wanted to wipe the slate clean. Charles is so obsessed with Ryan Olshan and seems intent on implicating me in his hatred. Just like he implicated Dana Coffee and Marcie Jones before out of the blue and started attacking them, he's attacking me. It's sad b/c it shows he clearly has no idea who is behind InlineASP and doesn't realize why they all hate him so much.

This time around, I'm 100% clean - Charles is just plain wrong in fact as well as suspicion. He's alienated most everyone that used to be his friend and now all he has are his blindly obedient lapdogs, Peter Brunone and Doug Nelson and a few other misc folks. He'll find little support for his attack b/c he's wrong and he has aliented everyone - fortunately, i've found tremendous support from many good friends - yourself included. It means a lot. Back when he first started this crap it used to get to me - now I just pretty much blow it off except when it's too 'in your face' to ignore. Like everything with him, it's just a lot more fun to watch and laugh at what a fool he behaves like than it is to take him seriously. He's all bark and no bite.

I'm sure we haven't heard the end of this thing, but who knows, maybe I'll get lucky.

Thanks again for the shout out buddy!
