I never had the opportunity to get to know him personally, but I certainly remember Mallory for being one of the kindest and coolest posters around. I didn't even know he was ill.

RIP Mallory.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Mallory was an inspiration to keep fighting for anyone facing a serious illness. His bravery, kind heart, good humor, love of family, and fairness even in the face of his own mortality show the strength of his character and conviction.

Best wishes to his family in these trying times. He will be missed.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Wow... I am so sorry to hear of this. Regretfully, I didn't have much interaction with him. Perhaps a couple of times in various threads. I'd read a number of his postings over the past couple of years and always thought rather highly of him. I loved his "Saving Ensign Mallory avatar". I'm very sorry he couldn't be saved. My sincere condolences...

Sad news. My thoughts are with his family and those of you who knew him better than I did.

We should retire that avatar.

I agree. Every time I see it, that's who I think about. Well before this, I would see that image around on the net and would immediately think of Mallory.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Condolences to his family. Mal shared his struggle with his health, his joy for his children and his love for his wife. He made his time here poignant, funny and fair.

RIP our favourite redshirt!

I didn't know Mallory, but I often read through his posts. He was a fixture in this community, and it will not be the same without him.

I regret I never really interacted with Mallory, but he certainly made his presence known, both as a fair, level-headed moderator and as an all-around great poster. He shall certainly be missed on this board.

My sympathies to his friends and family.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

In my very first days on this intimidating place called trekbbs some 8 years ago, Mal actually took the time to acknowledge my insignificant, noobie existence I probably said something stupid enough to attract the moderator's attention... but I have never forgotten how much his kind words meant to me.

He was just a warm and welcoming soul. Many of us probably found him our friend before we even realized it. I'm so very sorry he is gone. In my five years with him on staff.. there were times.. heh.. when I needed a friend and well, he was there. He would find you and let you know that you were not alone... wrong, right, or otherwise - you were only human; doing your best. Mallory had a way of making you feel as though you would never be left behind.

I have only just begun to miss him these last few days. His personal struggle, documented over several years in the BR, was an intimate and immediate source of inspiration. It spoke completely to his strength of character and to his love of this life. The board, and a little piece of our world, will never seem the same. But its ok because we have all worn the redshirt in our time. We have all been in the wrong place at the wrong time when it was right to take a stand. Of our old friend, I can only say that despite his online persona, he helped us all understand that the joy and the work and the fun of life always, always goes on.

godspeed, dear friend
