Well, if you read the "old" article he's doing it for income.

To me the question came across as odd, since I wasn't aware of any controversy. I suppose someone running across that old article might have questions. It just seemed odd at first.
Struck me as odd too, if you take the article at face value. How much can anybody know about Carlton w/o reading about and trusting what the authors' write is not 'embellished'?

Also, although the OP's question was innocent he's relying on the opinion of others' who actually have the nerve to post a full name in their replies

I have no opinion on Carlton but as a fellow writer I want to point out that Pat Jordan was/is a very prominent sports journalist and it would be highly unusual for him to make something up in one of his articles.

Well we've always known Carlton was odd; seems he's gone round the bend to weird. Also sounds like he should take advantage of the laws in CO and smoke a bowl or two...

Asking a question like that is close enough to stating an opinion or making an accusation. I wouldn't want anyone starting a thread like that, that questions my integrity, especially if they were allowed to remain anonymous. And I'm pretty sure Mr. Carlton would feel the same way if he ever stumbled upon this site and thread.

When did you stop beating your wife hitting is also a question.

Just asking a questions isnt' just asking when one of the answers would mean you are a socially unacceptable person...

or like when my wife asks me, what are you doing this weekend? i always afraid to answer because one of the answers may be wrong..

I still don't get the notion of hiding behind a screen name. On a forum discussing health issues, sure, there's a privacy concern. But baseball cards?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I am pretty sure you can't say how someone else will feel because you aren't them.
And, as always is done and evidenced by precedent, if this thread had your name in the title I would send you the name of the OP privately. That has been done in numerous other instances. IF Steve asks me for the OPs full name I will tell him. Same if it was about you, I would tell you. Everyone, imo, has a right to know who is saying stuff in their direction but mandating a full name is a bit more invasive and not required unless an opinion is given. A question probably won't require a full name.
