Wow! I understand your point and the RR's too. It only takes a few to spoil the lot and this one did a number for sure. I'm sure that if other true fans had seen him, they would have reported it and maybe this never would have gone as far as it did, but that didn't happen then. Too Bad it didn't! I'm not going to comment on his past and such, but I'll bet there were some signs that people just missed at the time that may have helped, but it's long after the fact now. Sad to hear about things like this and one can only hope it doesn't happen again... For the true fans, keeping your eyes open, staying safe, common sense, and reporting things is the best way to gain back the lost trust. Today, I fear that will never happen 100%... :-( Thanks for the link though, that was really something.
