It appears that my last post about the Grand Sierra Resort was based on information that I didn’t fully verify. I made a serious rookie mistake and want to extend my apologies to both the Grand Sierra Resort and to my readers as well.
So here’s what happened.
Over the weekend I received two comments posted to both of the threads related to the Grand Sierra Resort. Those comments were sent from someone using the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. I let the comments stand and replied back to that address for some additional clarification. When that email bounced it should have clued me in that something was wrong.
I forwarded the bounced email to Michael Carsch telling him I received a comment from the mike@ address. In his response Michael did not let me know that that email was not a valid address or that any comment using that was not an authorized representative of GSR. But then I also did not send Michael a copy of the original comment for him to provide comment on, just my questions about it. I should have known better.
When I did not get a denial from Michael I assumed the original comment stood and any clarifications he provided was a response to that original comment. It wasn’t.
I have since pulled the two comments, the new post and and all subsequent comments stemming from the fraudulent info. I was duped, and again would like to extend my apologies to all.
