Topband: W8JI is bailing out of this reflector?

Seemed to me Tom got annoyed at being quoted out of context, or 
misquoted entirely, or maybe both. People get careless about how they 
say things and end up questioning integrity of others.   The more one 
values integrity, the more important that can be.  I think Tom has a lot 
of integrity and it's damned important to him.  Got to be more careful 
in an email where intent is not always clear.  Everyone has a right to 
an opinion, but also are responsible for the consequences of how they 
express it.
We may have lost one of the very best.  Or maybe we'll get lucky and Tom 
will be back eventually.
Just my 2 cents, FWIW....
