    The first time I went to a convention was 1978 Denver, Colorado..... my dad told me "everybody is nice, but that Kish is an a$$hole"........ 30 years later I have a great conversation with you and tell my passive father, retired from taxidermy and he says "Joe Kish is an a$$ hole"...... the man that accepts everybody thinks you are an a$$ hole...... I still give you a chance..... then you accuse one of the greatest women I know, Linda Poerner of stealing, a thief........ I love EVERYBODY in the Texas Association...... you just messed with the wrong lady....I saw your letter to the board and if they do not do something about the slander, I will stand up, ask the former NTA....... you attacked so many people and never looked in the mirror at a bitter person so you attacked a new grandma who, with her entire family sacrificed vacations and had her husband and children doing work in that time..... Joe, everybody takes care of themselves, everybody in the association supports everybody...... I'm sorry, this is different......... when you attacked Linda Poerner, you counted on everybody to be passive....... this time you counted wrong........ you better come up with some facts because I'm coming for you now.

    You better back up what your ass wrote...... you got one pissed off bear cub and this time YOU WILL put up or shut up........ let's not talk any more...... now we are dancing.

    When he completely insulted James Newport who won 2nd in world with his pig, then called out Mike Orthober who also has many Akeley medals I am interested in why? Now this, huh.. looking forward to details

    Yeah, I'd like to know details as well. I am new to the entire taxidermy arena, having only been a member of the Texas Association a few years now. And this is only my second year competing. But everyone from the Texas Association has always been extremely kind to me....and James? He's one of the nicest people I've ever met. Just curious why someone would call him out, or Linda? Or Mike O?

    I'm sure not wanting to stir the pot at all! I am just curious what this is all about. I just spoke to James @ our state show last year, and a few weeks ago @ the World Show....nicest guy ever.
  6. So...my post questioning the TTA gets deleted but THIS is allowed to stay??? Really????

    Now turn.n.flesh, why do you ask that, when, at the time, I CLEARLY explained it to you...twice? You know exactly why. And if this situation is in litigation or they post affidavits, then yes, it also will be removed, as per taxinet rules.
  8. I really don't appreciate your tone Mr. Yox. I am not daft...so there is no reason to address me that way. I thought we were having an adult discussion (through private message) about my post being deleted, but clearly I was wrong. I guess your fatherly advice was strictly to protect your buddy.

    ETA: The litigation has been settled so your fatherly advice is moot, anyway...but I am sure your little friend had told you that already.

    Hello all,yes I am still alive!LOL! I have not been in the "loop" for quite sometime .I have just read Michael P's post and that has struck a major nerve with me.Linda is like a sister to Elsa and I and we are like family .Linda is an Angel of God,how dare someone be -little her like that! especially by someone who is an icon in the Taxidermy World .I can't believe what I have just read and I am sadden by all this.The Texas Association has always treated Elsa and I as Family and with dignity.I have always admired how the whole Poerner family has contributed to not only The Texas Association but to the whole Taxidermy Industry.It is really a shame that someone would cause such slander.The Poerners are not "cafeteria" members that are there to pick and choose who they like or dislike.They are a hard working Christian Family!with NO political Ties!!

    Love you Guys,
    Manny and Elsa Chavez

    Ok, Im pretty certain youre reading a lot more into this than what I really know. I returned your two messages a few weeks ago about a post deleted in here about some actions in Texas, and explained why, and answered your follow up question too. Thats why I was surprised youd post what you did in here Thursday. Say what you want about you being daft, me taking a tone, or your disappointment about not having an adult discussion anymore. But to assume I know about a settlement, or who my little buddy or little friend is? YOU must know about the whole issues, but I dont. I simply edited for the reasons I told you. Period.

    If you DO wish to see a tone, I can accommodate you. I would be happy to call YOU out and tell you to name the names of these buddies. Id be happy to post our two PMs for review. Im not into these games, Im simply a damn moderator. The best part is, other then your screen name of flesh.n.turn, I dont even know who you are, no less protecting a buddy!
