      How are you doing David? I was so sorry to hear about your accident. Truly a totally freak accident! God, you just never realize how your life can change in an instant. I am still confident that you will get past this and be able to put it behind you. It is really good to see that you are able to post some now on SB.. You need to know that there is not a single day that goes by that you are not in my thoughts and prayers. I know that this was an incredibly horrific occurance in your life and I can't even begin to imagine how difficult it is for you! But I am convinced there will come a time when it will all be over and you will be back in the game!
      Please continue to keep us informed of your progress.

        Hi my friend! Thanks for your kind words.. And sorry for my incredibly late response. I never saw it until now. My 5 year anniversary of the accident is in 3 days and I plan to post about it. I'm doing really good. I hope you are as well! Hopefully we'll be able to meet up and dive together in the near future..

      Well! After contacting the moderator about WSOPFan, it appears they pulled your post that suggested blocking him! They however missed my post in which I quoted yours and suggested everybody block him!
      It also appears they have pulled all of his comments! The little prick! I would love to know more about who he really is!
      Anyhow, maybe some civility will return to the thread now!
      Later.

      I sent a message to the moderators expressing my concern about WSOPFAN's inappropriate remarks on this thread and the ill feelings he was creating!

      I have also sent him (WSOPFAN) two PM's. One a couple of days ago telling him to cease his comments before he pissed everyone off! And then one just now saying that he was obviously too stupid to listen to anyone's advise!

      Good idea about blocking him! I certainly will and hope everyone else will!

      Are you still on the island or back in the states?... Keep in touch!

      The hair has grown back a bit but I'm about to clipper it off again.. Much more easy to get my mask strap situated, ya know?

      Thailand sounds GREAT!
