Re: Dark City Games

Hi Jeffrey, 
I don’t have his snail mail address.  All communications 
have been thru email.

If I did have his snail mail address, I would have spent the 
$16 bucks (or what ever it costs now) and sent him a 
registered mail letter.  That would have been my first choice.
I own a handful of the Dark City Games adventures, and 
checked, but the products to not list his address.  Possibly 
the mailing envelopes had a return address, but I threw 
those out years ago.

There is no need to bring lawyers into it.  I simply wish to 
disassociate myself from him and his company.  I had made 
a promise to help him, and I feel that I have a moral 
requirement to fulfill that promise until I have let him know 
that I have withdrawn the offer.  This is now done, since he 
had replied to a post I made on this list a week or so ago & 
I think I can fairly assume he reads this list.  If YOU have his 
snail mail address, you could let him know that my previous 
post is on this mailing list, but I think that that is over kill.

Thank you very much for your advice tho!  I am no lawyer.
However, a lawyer once told me that most of his work came 
from people not communicating clearly.  However, it is very 
hard to commicate clearly, when I don’t know if he is receiving 
my messages.  

Warm regards, Rick.

I recommend in the future that you have your lawyer notify him through normal legal channels to his snail-mail address instead of this sort of "public shaming."  And it continues to waste my time since I am forced to point out that this kind of communication in no way serves any legal purpose and only a formal legal notification to him would do so.  This presumes you have some sort of previously established contractual arrangement, of course, which would necessitate you making such a statement in the first place.  If, on the other hand, you had no such agreement, then again, this "notification" of yours serves no valid legal purpose, and again, the only point seems to be to attack your intended audience while simultaneously attempting to damage his reputation among the rest of us forced to read this.  In either case it is nothing that I care about, nor that I have any future desire to see.  So do me the courtesy of leaving me off of this garbage in the future.  Thank you.

Hi Jeffrey,
  George has not answered my emails, and I do not know if he 
has programmed emails from me to go to trash.  However, I do 
know that he sees this list, and it is important that he knows 
that he no longer has the rights to publish my work.  

  Also I had a standing offer to play test his products, which I 
wish to withdraw.  It will save him the cost of postage and me 
many hours work.

  I apologize for the minor waste of your time, but this way at 
least I do know that it is likely that he has seen my email.  If he
replied to any of my several emails, it would not have been 
necessary to take this route.

  Warm regards, Rick.

Pretty uncool to send this on blast, Rick.  Your issues with others are of zero interest to me.  Please refrain from wasting my time with this kind of petty crap in the future.  Thanks.

Hi George,
    I wished you the very best, and was willing to put a great deal of
work for a trivial payment to help you succeed.  (For example, you
send me a product that needs testing, and I would play it myself,
play it with my friends, and then read and reread it and write a report. 
I don’t remember the exact number, but I believe I sent a 20+ page
report on your Sewers product (which was 64 pages long if I recall
correctly) in exchange for one copy of the game.)

    I formally withdraw this offer.  Please do not send me any products
that you wish to get feedback on.  I no longer care to help you in this

    If you wish to terminate our deal for the Demon Hive solo
adventure, it would have been kind to actually come out and say so.
Ghosting me, just seems sleazy. 

    I am formally removing that product from consideration.  You no
longer have permission to publish my work.

    Regards, Rick.
