There have been a crap load of edits in the past couple of days, but it looks like an admin has stepped in to neutralize the article.  It actually still has some problems, but it appears that the admin thought Jason was helping to write his autobiography, since that was one of the "policies" that was considered to have been broken.

In one of Jason's edits he claims that himself and Todd are inimitable!   :0

That was a J edit?  I saw the word but didn't track the author.  Crazy.

If you look at this link, the version on the left is after a Jason edit, and the version on the right is another Jason edit 15 minutes later.  You can see where he added "inimitable" to the version on the right.

Actually if you look back far enough it was some troll that put that in there ...

I did a cut in paste from an older version and did not see that in there but told the admin to remove it. Their editing and undoing still have bugs.

I also informed him about other trolls that will try and alter that page.

Have you guys ever considered a Public Relations person?  It seems that you might be able to use one at the moment.

Since we have yet to sell out we don't have the budget to hire anyone right now. ;-)

Its just a small yet very vocal group that spends more time worrying about bringing us down rather than being productive members of this beer culture. Not worried at all ...

I think a psychologist would be more the ticket.

Take three deep breaths, relax, . . . now let's go back to your early childhood - you were holding a bottle with a rubber nipple . . .

A shrink and a personal trainer for Candice might be helpful

I don't really care for the bros or for what happened to so many good BAs. But I'm over it. I don't think I'll be wasting any more time bashing them or their website.

However, I do find some of the stuff others have done (avatars, posts on BA, wiki, etc.) to be funny.

I should probably thank Todd. I'm spending a lot less time online now.

Now I'm just rambling, but I think I saw Jason on a Sam Adam's ad today.

that was the least offensive of the many articles reporting the problems at beer advocate... the ones that repost all the candice blog stuff I didn't feel like reporting... too many swears.
