Here's John William Corrington's introduction to Bukowski's 1963 collection, It Catches My Heart In Its Hands.
I think this is the thread you are referring to?I was sure, I had recently seen an old thread where the Corrington-Split-Up was discussed (the meeting in 65 and later the letters-back-story of 68) I couldn't find it anymore, so maybe if there is one, better melt this one into it...

Where we get up in arms is when something like the nazi rumor broke, which was clearly a lie and made up by a hollywood writer (who had a long string of lies about Bukowski in print) to help sell books and it was pushed by the owner of his old department who wanted to use it as an excuse to make Delongpre into a parking lot.
his many fall-outs with former friends (in some cases after the first meeting in real-life) are well known. You could nearly call it a pattern.[...] that he seems to alienate everyone he meets in person. [...]

I think you've got the equation backward there, chum. You're the one who has yet to earn anyone's respect. The warm embrace of your particular delusion may bring you comfort, but you should know that most people here see you as a babbling, unhinged kook.you could earn yourself some respect.
