bad form? not calling him out. calling him bitter.
icon? to my knowledge, no.
john cohen, marc shneff, kirk rodgers, mr. progression( his name is sliping my mind) are all builders who have all done for our local market and even industry. never heard anyone of them bash the hell out people.

Ascerbic yes, knowledgeable yes, someone I would help no matter what, absolutely. Same goes for Reggie & Brownie. They have all paid their dues, and have done so for several decades. To me this is the equivalent of R.E Olds saying Henry Ford was full of crap, and Walter Chrysler didn't know squat, and Ferry Porsches' cars were too small and light and Sloan ruined the industry thru consolidation and well, you get the picture.
Wonder how many know what a T2X is?? Not the person, the _______,
Lighten up, no one is getting out alive.

it makes me laugh when the fountain guys talk about winning races, but the a majority of the fountains that win races arent even built by fountain, theyre built by skater and dont have the terrible beak with the terrible windshield and no awful swim platform. other than that i dont really mind fountains...

Great point.

No one can fault Rich's posts if they are honest and well thought out, which they are.
Everyone is allowed an opinion.

If everyone here thought the same it would be pretty boring.

I see no reason to repost the obvious. But as was just seen in SVL at Key West not everyone plays fair, some seldom do. For the record it does sell boats just not necessarily at a profit.

For the record.... as I understand it "bashing" is when you take some thing or some body and say it or they are no good without basis or fact. I agree that this is intolerable.

However when the builder of a 750 hp motor claims to produce 1200hp and you call him out on it.....his customers and fans frequently confuse this with "bashing"...... when in fact it is simply telling the truth.

For instance....let's say a guy has no sense of humor....and doesn't recognise that a post about Reggie's resignation was a joke...... so he get's his knickers in a wad...and marches off like Don Quixote to defend the honor of his idol. I believe that pointing this out is a civic and moral duty (right up there with feeding "The Children") so that this poor member of a hapless cult may be released from the humourless psychological bonds he is trapped in. He needs deprogramming, re-education, and a dose of South Park so that he can return to civilization as an active and alert member of society rather than a knee jerking robot who salutes automatically at the mere mention of his "Furher's" name.

None of this can be considered "bashing" you understand.... it is social responsibility...of the highest order.....it is so noble in fact, that i can hardly keep the tears out of my eyes as I write this.


Sigh.............
