shake is a big boy, and he should be fighting his own battles here... yeah, the witchhunt term seems a little out of line. seems more like a bunch of people left in the dark and looking for some answers.
"Screwed" is not an appropriate word. Sorry. Should he have communicated? Yes. Do we know the exact reason why he didn't? No. Is there a reason that exists that may explain the lack of communication? Yes. So let's give a friend the benefit of the doubt.
Scenario: cancer diagnosis at the end of September. Surgery in October. Recovery ever since. Should he hop online, in between radiation sickness pukes, and explain why he didn't pay someone their $500 prize, when he spent that money on the surgery?
Just giving you an example. Again, I don't know what happened (and I hope it wasn't as bad as that) and I won't ask. But you'll feel pretty crappy if something like that scenario was the actual case and you're riding him like that.
Why "Screwed" is an inappropriate term: My league that I run is done in April and in June. They get their prize money in September. They get their prize money five months after they win it - and you're trying to plead your case over having to wait two months? So am I jerk for waiting five months each year to pay?
"Shake is a big boy and should be fighting his own battles here"
Again - if you have something serious hit your life, do you owe a bunch of forum people an explanation right away? Or can they wait a few weeks? I'm not fighting his battle, I'm helping you out by letting you rest easy. He says he'll pay. Let's give him time to.
I'd fight the same battle on your behalf too, as a well-respected forum member. I'm equally loyal to all you guys who have been around awhile.
