And this is different from a year ago or two years ago how?

This is a story from 2002:

We don't live in a black and white world. Deception is not always wrong and in this case it was well served. Lawyers, Policeman, Reporters, investigators use it all the time and we tend to sometimes be better for it.
Same deal here. He had the goal of accomplishing a "killshot" and went with the plan from the very first e-mail. An e-mail that I responded tersely too and told him not to contact us again. I REALLY don't like the publicity element of it... and I have been critical of Jeff from day 1, but ultimately he has Olney admitting to deception and spinning lies left and right... and now it's on YouTube forever for everyone to see.
I think this is in serving both Jeff and Olney's egos. But alot of egos were served in the original thread and some good came of that.
Olney deserves to be deceived and played for a sucker, I have absolutely no problem with it.
