Fascinating stuff. This revelation about a HOF Redscape diplomat was jarring. I think it speaks more to the game driving the behavior rather than something inherent in the player.

As for LIng, he's taking a sabbatical on the race course. Perhaps some of you would like to do the same: Season 4 starts in May!

I don't think I would want to ever play in a game with Ling again, after my efforts in this game were ruined by his cheating. This is as someone who's worked well with Ling in the past and liked him personally previously to this game. But maybe my stance will change with more time..it's the GM's call in any case.

It would be a most unnecessary decision to ban David Ling from Redscape. He is an excellent player. And others can continue to learn from his style as the years roll on. His reasons for doing what he did are understandable if viewed from his perspective. However his reasons were not justified and he knows that. I think it's commendable that he owned up to the truth, admitted his wrongdoing and apologized to the group. Would he have done so had he not been caught? Hard to tell, but at least he was a man about it and offered his apology and rationale. That's rare but speaks to the kind of person he is.

Put the powdered wigs and gavels away.
