    Did I miss the thread in which a bunch of us puked when they saw that ad?

    I read that ad, and thought there would be a big topic on this here. Guess not...

    Thank you Coreene.
    I also hope that the new Amature Issue does not feature a client of Mr PV like it did last year.
    I love my weekly COTH but that is one article that I did not like.

    Coreene, I assume you are referring to a "Thank You" ad that was run that thanked PV.

    Every time I see one of those I puke and then I want to hop on here and start a big old thread about it.

    And then I stop myself because I know we have a classic 20+ page PV thread already. Actually we have several. In which I expressed my opinion loudly.

    But to clarify your post - you are referring to a "Thank You" ad, no?

    but something to the effect of Because he donated 1/2 of his lesson proceeds, there was a big donation to the ASPCA or Humane Society or something.

    Gag me with a spoon.

    Why not have donated that ad $$ to the ASPCA as well?

    The thing I hated about it the most was it left the impression the ad might have been placed by the ASPCA!

    Where is the retching graemlin????

    PS-VTRider, I tried. I really, really tried! But hey! At least I didn't start it!!!

    Where is it? Since I have NO IDEA who this person is, and since I will never, and I mean NEVER be showing, I want to know what this is all about!

    Now, Coreene...Lets be realistic. There is a VERY simple explanation as to why he didn't do that. The ad that would needed to be purchased to blow the amount of sunshine up that ass to brighten up the dark hole where his soul and common sense of decency used to live could NEVER be acquired with less than half the proceeds...

    Absolutely spot on, sister!

    Hitch - totally ironic that in your post on this particular thread you used the word "KILLER" - as an adjective, but I still can't get over the ironic black humour in that one.

    The last massive PV thread revolved around the original ad placed by him shortly after 9/11 regarding the donation of 1/2 his training proceeds to the ASPCA. I admit I missed the 11/15/02 follow-up ad.

    Hopefully that original thread is still available in the "Favorites" section. If no, it's too bad - and I must admit, although I hold very strong anti-PV opinions, those who expressed sentiments opposite of mine did so in a very clear manner.

    Those posters didn't (and won't) change my mind but kudos to them for jumping into a very emotional subject.

    The ad is a 1/4 page on page 12 in large bold type, without any graphics, and reads in its entirety:

    "As a result of Paul Valliere donating half of his lesson proceeds, the ASPCA has received another generous contribution to aid those animals affected during the tragedy of September 11th. We thank him!"

    It has no indication of who placed the ad.

    ...can't he just shut up and go away?

    I say the same thing every time the Rev. Al Sharpton has something to say regarding ANOTHER perceived civil rights issue, every time the public hears from OJ Simpson, and every time Mike Tyson assaults someone and gets arrested...again. ENOUGH of you people already! Haven't you learned that the public spotlight does not display your charming personalities very well?

    As for Paul Valliere, unless publicly advertising good deeds is part of his humane education penalty, he needs to "shut up and go away" too, and avoid publicizing his acts of contrition. It just makes him seem like even more of a pompous jerk. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    And in case anyone's wondering, I am referring to the ad, not to this thread!

    Ugh!!!
