I even emailed Don the Webmaster last night and VERY politely asked just what it was that I did that "crossed the line" I pointed out that posts written back to me were "MUCH more slamming" than anything I had posted in his Forum. Of all the posts that I posted there, no one ever said anything to refute what I had written, they just got bent because I was calling it straight.
Guess "the in crowd" there doesn't like to be made out like a bunch of spoiled arrogant self centered hypocrites. And the more that THEY posted, the worse they made themselves look. "Aubrey", JDeere, and Acres don't have one friggin clue on earth as to what reality is. Realtiy is that other people have the same rights as themselves no matter how much THEY don't like it.
If the go fasts were banned, next it would be the bass boats, then the mid 20's bowrider, then all boats that are powered. If those WEENIES had their way, just like the Save the Manatee Club, everyone would just paddle around in canoes listening to gospel music, VERY QUIETLY.
Don the Webmaster made an inference that I was intimidating people. That was a total crock. They just couldn't back up their stance on the issue with any factual evidence, and they just kept grasping at any straw they could to try to make us look bad and there make us look like we did not know what we were talking about. In the end, quite a few of the longtime Forum members over there ended up defending me.
Guess Don just got tired of me kicking his "good ole boy network's " collective azzes.
And by shutting down the thread was a very direct sign that he knew his side was not going to even present any type of solid difference of opinion, much less win the debate. The ole' "I realize how bad we're losing here so I'll just shut it down, cut my losses, AND RUN".
I got my points in. And I still feel I was extremely respectable and courteous in their Forum. A he!! of a lot more than some of them were to me. Anyone one to guess whether they "got scolded". Right....
