Original Nightmare on Elm Street Part 5 “Freddy” Gloves Update

Yesterday Alec Peters, CEO of PropWorx, banned me as a member of his “Star Trek Props, Costumes, and Auctions” discussion forum.  Since bans from discussion forums are public acts – presumably as a consequence of bad behavior – I thought it would be appropriate to make a note of this here, to memorialize my perspective.  Read more
