RL had me away from the BBS yesterday, so I just saw this.
I didn't know Mallory
too well, and thus did not know that he had been battling cancer, but his level-headed, wise presence on this board over the 9 years I've been here made him an always reassuring fixture of sanity this community. His 'saving ensign mallory' avatar was ever-present in these parts to the point that it and he seemed woven into the whole cloth of this place, and without him, I don't think TrekBBS will be the same. To say he'll be missed is just not adequate.
RIP to a great mod, a great poster, and by all accounts, a great man.
