Email 1: - Jeff sends me an email making big deal about Scott complaining about me in an email that he'd sent to the ARRL SFL SM. Then Jeff withholds a copy of Scott's email from me claiming that he's not wanting to "inflame the situation". But then, that's why he told me in the first place. Right?...So that I wouldn't get upset?...

Well, I'm trying not to inflame the situation.  This has already been
dealt with.  Drudging it back up won't help anyone or anything.  I 
don't expect anyone to take Scott seriously the way he composed his 
email.  I just wanted to give you a heads-up that Scott may be trying 
to stir things up.  I'll just summarize a few of his Scott-isms:

Your name is 'Tood', Scott wants people to 'ack like an adult', and 
says he wouldn't 'step this low' (stoop), but that's 'after 
the dusk settled'  (dust).  I'm sure its just his blackberry keyboard 
that is the problem.  (AHEM!)

Basically he wants ARRL to do something about Melissa for that email 
that caused you to send the cops on him.

So if it helps him achieve his goal, and if that's your goal too, then 
it sounds like Scott wants to do you a favor.  But he isn't clear 
about what exactly he wants done.  He just wants "corrective action" 
taken by ARRL and N. Florida so he sent it to Joe.

I'm not sure what damage control he is trying to do, or how it gets 
you involved other than the bit about calling the cops on him because 
of that email.

But he can't open that door without opening the door to his own wrong 

He doesn't say anything specific about you that he wants done.

Here's the email from Scott where your name is mentioned.

Notice the numerous typos, grammatical errors, mistakes, and 
self-contradictory statements.

Do you still have the original email that you got?  I don't think I 
ever saw it.

Any possibility you can shed any light on this email?  I have no idea what I am
supposed to do with it.  Thanks.
