Enough is enough

Ok, you have my attention.
I have been busy working on some water issues and other sacred lands issues in Sacramento for awhile and have been obliquely looking at the messages surrounding my blog entries.

What started out as mildly amusing has become a distraction from my writing on subjects I choose, on my own blog. I am politely asking Enrollen Wintu Tribal Member (EWTM) to take his hatred of me and what ever he perceives that I have done to him and any other Wintu, to his own web page. I am also asking those who have responded to this person to stop.

EWTM, you are now just writing things that have nothing to do with the intent of my original posting. You are personally attacking me, I don't really care, but it is annoying to have written about "pine cones" and have someone argue instead about the price of eggs in China.

Look, I don't know who you are, I don't really care who you are and from the tone of your responses to my personal blog entries, I do not want to know you. You make claims about me from behind your log in name, but I wonder, will you face me up close and personal and say these things? Will you question my integrity, my honesty and my value system, face to face? You do not know me, I do not know you. You have been asking for answers to your questions, asking for a response, I imagine from me. My response is let it go. Do what you need to do for your people, I will do for those I am responsible for mine. But remember to always be mindful of what you ask for.

Just now I am busy trying to protect the waters of the northern rivers so the salmon can return. I will be busy, probably until October or early November on these matters. When I am free, and if you want, I will answer you, in person. Until then, carry on your dialogue on your own page. I have left these pages open for those few who actually read the articles for the subject matter. I don't want to set limits on what is posted because open dialogue is a good thing. I just wish you would take your dislike for me with you to your page and leave my stuff alone.
