The memory I have of you comes from a while ago, back when things were still very new and heated when Liz and Ian had just broken up. It doesn't directly involve me, but what I saw left a pretty powerful image in my mind. A very positive one as well, though I thought you more than a little nuts at the time.

It seemed that everyone had a different version of what events had happened when they broke up. Some were bashing Ian, others Liz, some were supportive of one side or the other without doing the bashing game, still others remained basically neutral or tried to help both sides. Regardless, there were a bunch of different stories coming from a bunch of different people. As this community sometimes does, people were picking and chosing which stories to believe and dismissing those that didn't fit; again, some to a greater degree than others.

But the approach I remember you taking was different. You took the time to go through all the stories and try to see all the various sides. While everyone did this to an extent, I don't remember anyone checking all the stories as rigorously as you did. Going through them all, seeing what matched, what didn't, and how to reconcile the differences to try to get at the Truth.

While I thought you left at the time, I was left thinking of you as someone who is loyal to your friends, and to the truth. Looking back, I still think you nuts for having done so much, but at the same time, I have a lot of respect for you as a result.

.... nice to see I'm being blamed. ^.^ Thanks, Brent-sama!

Er... I usually remember the random comments you make to me in IMspace, because I'm not quite clear on when we started getting in touch. If you would be so kind to enlighten me on that, I'd appreciate it.

... I also remember you quoting the Jargon File, too. That's a strong memory. ^^;

Hmm...I knew you were one of the Good Guys late September. By December, you were an official Friend(tm).

It's strong because I reinforce it every single time I do it. :^P
