I can't say that I really knew him, aside from occasionally reading his posts. What I can say though is that I doubt we'll see anyone like him here at Ehmac again - he was truly one of a kind. I send my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Like many here, I'm shocked and near speechless.

Though my attendance on this board has been irregular at times, I always thought MacNutt would be here arguing, sharing a joke and just being a leading character in a warm online community.

ehmac will be the less without him.

Rest well MacNutt.

Kind words indeed. Thanks, and for the record his name was "Gerry".

I hear what you are saying. I have posted sporadically over the years, but whenever I come on I know I will see MacDoc, Posterboy and Macnutt going head to head, Dr.G playing the good cop, Sinc chipping in with his vast life experience, Gordguide and his amazing insight...etc. You just always expect things to stay the same, because of the great entertainment value, and for me the educational value. I've never been into politics, but over the years i have really learned a lot from this board, not just with politics but on a vareity of issues.

I'm saddened. I talked with him a few times very late at night on the ehMac iChat channel.

He'll be missed.

"... Dr.G playing the good cop ...." Maximusbibicus, actually Gerry and I had a little "game" going on when we would "poke" at each other and sort of "egg" on the others to get to the point and state their views on certain topics without resorting to anger. We shared a few PM's about this, and this was our little joke that we shared. "The World According to MacNutt" shall now be silenced with his passing, as this world is a little poorer for his death. Still, we are all a bit richer for his having shared a bit of his life with a bit of our lives.

Paix, mon ami. RIP.

I feel like I've been sucker-punched. Kinda figured this cat would always be around, though of course we all know better. I too always suspected that this professional forum blowhard was a gentleman in the flesh - as has been already said earlier, probably a great guy to have a beer with. To me he was always a sly agent provocateur who enjoyed getting a rise out of people... he believed in much of what he said, certainly, but there was also an aspect of sport to many of his taunts and casual hyperbole. He was, I like to think, a far gentler sort in person than what his online persona usually suggested.

He was a genuine Canadian, our MacNutt. There was a real archetypal quality to his online character that I recognized immediately and came to respect, even if his deliberately weighted statements often had me rolling my eyes. I will miss the consistency and dependability of his online character, and it's too bad I'll never have the opportunity to knock back a pint with him and witness the gleam in his eyes I always suspected was there.

Thanks for the insight. I hope you didn't take the comment in a bad way at all. I was trying to be complimentary.
