To Whom It May Concern,
I was contacted by Tauren Tom, Station General Manager of Tauradio, yesterday with a complaint of cyber bullying of my guest Leto in Episode 60 of Grand Old Podcast.
My intent with my interview with Leto was to gain a greater insight into the History of Warcraft Podcasting, which Leto was a part of hosting a very early show on WCRadio. I also wanted to talk about the story of World of Warcraft, a subject which Leto had talked about on two of his pervious podcasts.
As I have stated earlier, after episode 60 went live, former members of WCRadio contacted me and informed me that many of Leto's remarks were untrue. It was also at this point I realized that there is a longstanding feud between some former members WCRadio; and I had walked into the middle.
Because of this feud and because I could not verify the truthfulness of Leto's remarks, I kept Episode 60 down and offline. I had felt that was end of matter until yesterday.
I'm not sure why Tauren Tom sent me this email. I have taken down Episode 60 and plan to keep it down. It is my plan to continue to do History of Warcraft podcasting interviews as long as people will talk to me or until I no longer enjoy podcasting. I wish this matter settled; sadly, it seems that it's the fire that keeps burning.
This is not my fight. Nor can I control what the few people that heard my interview think of it. I'm just a guy trying to do a podcast. It's not the biggest show, or even the best show, but it's a show I enjoy doing. Sadly, ever since episode 60 went live, much of the joy I take in doing the podcast is lessened.
If I have any say in things, this will be the last mention of Episode 60 on this blog. Also, for the record, my copyright still stands in that anyone with a copy of episode 60 may not host it and any persons with copies I would request they not play any clips of episode 60. Simply put, this is my hobby and I would like to get back to enjoying it.
