Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Haven't been able to face this place since I heard this news. Mal was one of the bravest, most down-to-earth people I met online. He was one of the reasons I stayed in the BR far longer than I should have.

I hope he's been given a suitable Modhammer where he's gone to continue to fight on the side of the angels.

So true. I think that of all the people I have met on-line Mallory striked me as as most normal person I had met. You know, like he could really be a person I knew and interacted with in real life.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I'm not sure how much I can add to what has already been said.

Personally, Mallory was and is and incredible inspiration to me. As someone else who has serious medical issues, we often talked about our situations in Wordforge Chat. His relentlessly optimism in the face of astounding odds and the example of his many instances of beating those odds to keep on going has many times served as a reminder when I've been tempted to fall into the all too easy trap of self-pity on a bad day.

He was always there with a kind word for anyone, but a tough and fair opponent when in disagreement. His love of his family was deep and was one of the things that kept him going in the dark times.

He will be greatly missed by me...and I feel I can speak for Wordforge when I say that our board is poorer today than it was before October 13.

Know that Wordforge grieves with thee, TrekBBS, for the loss of a great man.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I didn't hear the news until I saw it on another BBS. What a sad, terrible loss. Mallory was always an entertaining poster and fair mod. Truly a scholar and a gentleman.

RIP Mallory.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I only just noticed this thread. I can't say I knew him well, but he'll be missed around here. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I haven't been on much lately, and I don't post much, but this is sad news. He helped me through some personal issues, and for that I am truly grateful.
He will be missed terribly.
My condolences to his family and friends

Godspeed, Mallory.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I'm a bit late to the thread - I'm shocked, but not overly surprised. I'd known he'd been battling cancer for quite a few years, and I always admired his courage (as many have in this thread). I guess it was just a matter of time. He will be greatly missed.

My thoughts go out to his family and all his friends, both here and elsewhere.

RIP Mallory

Very sad news, indeed. I agree with Davros, the board will, indeed, be less without him.

Rest in peace, Mallory.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Shocked and saddened to hear the news of his passing.
Like a few other posters, I've not been around much lately so I only read the announcement a few minutes ago. He is a big loss to these boards, and will be sorely missed.

Thoughts and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
Rest in Peace Mallory.

Mallory was a wonderful person and I'm truely saddened by this news.

Apologies for the late bump but I don't check in here as often as I once did, but I will always remember the good old days when I was more active on TrekBBS and we were all part of the furniture around these parts. Good times.
