It's been a long morning. I'd just gotten off the phone with the school principal who's taking B2C, when it rang again.

I looked at the phone. Private Call, it read.

Cool. I do love talking to military folks, and always try to remember to thank them for their service.

"Joel Rosenberg," I said.

"Err... I'm calling about the conceal and carry class?"

Well, there's plenty of time to explain that in class, later. Kind of an important issue, actually, but I don't have to clear that up now.

"What can I do for you?" I said, cheerfully.

"Well, my wife and I was about to sign up for your class, but I was lookin' at your website, and I'm..." I heard paper rustling; I think maybe he was reading from something . . . "...appalled, that's it, I'm appalled at how you trash out other instructors on your blog...." Hmm....gee, that awkward phrasing -- who is it who uses that unusual term, trash out? -- and the confusion between an online forum and a blog sounds awfully familiar "...and I wanna know what you're gonna do about that."

"Gee, I'm sorry that you feel that way. Can I get your name?"

"Wataprik." *click*

Damn. I didn't get a chance to thank Private Call for his service to our country.

I wonder what Private Wataprik Call's issue is. Oh, well. I wish he'd left his number; I can't find him on any online directory.

Oh come ON!!! Someone's seriously pulling this kind of bullshit now instead of just coming on here (as has been offered) and defending themselves? :evil:

As to who was behind that call, well, as the old saying goes: I have no proof, and I have no doubt.

Sigh.

Unfortunately for the rest of you -- I like it -- the really interesting ones are great, and wonderful to get, and I can't talk about them in any kind of detail.

And now that you've described it that way, we ALL want to hear of those awesome calls :-(

Bah, I love people who hide behind the call blocking feature. Takes a big man to do that.

Uh-oh. You don't mean to tell me that it wasn't Private Wataprik Call (either USMC or USA) I heard from this morning?

Honest: I suspect that Private Call really isn't a serving, or former, member of the US military.

Oh, I think there's a real chance that he's somebody I've <s>had the pleasure of talking to</s> have heard from before.
