The Truth Is That Tod Maffin Does Not Love Radio ... just the sound of his own voice.

I would expect that someone who loves radio would have a site that discusses great moments in radio and great broadcasters.
And I would expect that someone who grew up listening to radio in Vancouver would be very familiar with Pat Burns and Jack Webster and Red Robinson and Fred L. etc, and want to talk about the local and international market.
And know all about the greatest broadcaster of all time, Howard Stern.

I would expect that person to maybe have a radio column in The Vancouver Province that talks about each stations ratings and what garbage Bruce Allen puts out, and how one channel is devoted only to traffic reports.

But no, that's not for Tod Maffin.
He only wants to know what you're doing in radio that might help to promote what he's doing in radio.

And local media is only interested in the money shot, and yesterday's history, not far back beyond a week ago.

And if Ouimet is able to handle anon CBC why not you.
Few people have Google accounts.

And Dave Garrett and Doug Collins ...

and Jack Wasserman and Payton

which are the ones from whom I learned the most.

If people can't be bothered to get a Google account, then what they have to say can't be that important.
I accept pseudonyms.

It's simply asking people to take some measure of responsibility for what they have to say.
And then, say anything you want.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
