Oh dear me..HERE we go AGAIN..NOT!
Should I take this as a personal attack?? HMmmm
Gon..you DID get away with a personal attack on another member a few weeks ago. The member didn't react. The thread dropped. Guess you got away with it. I felt like taking you apart for that attack. AND for a serious lack of knowledge about the sport in your response. In hindsight I wish I had.
I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt here..about your remark(here). And also about you not seeing..or worse..paying attention to my reaction the other day in a similar situation..or WORSE yet..trying to "bait" me.
I feel bad. I went after Carvemeister pretty bad. AS I am MORE than capable of doing..both in defence and in attack mode. I am not particularly proud of this trait..but I am at times grateful for it when I need it. Sure sometimes I do abuse it..in defence NOT as a bully. I want to PUBLICLLY apologize for that and to Carve again. I did apologize for that..and to the administrator..in describing the situation.
You have put me in a very bad position gon. I lashed out at Carve..and I can only hope that Carve or others don't see my attack on him as a personal one BECAUSE in this instance I am not going to lash out at you. I AM a fighter! AND I do admit it..like skiing hard/a passion for equipment..I do at times LOVE to fight!! AND I sure feel like it I tell ya..but sometimes "discretion is the better part of valor".
I asked the administrator to remove ONLY MY post reacting to Carve..because I felt that it wasn't in the general good spirit of Epicski and it's members. OR for anyone..visitors to read.
You get the chance to decide if you feel that you got away with a personal attack..OR cover yourself by saying you were joking. Trust me.. if you feel the first..I am not proud of the other day. But I am sure that a few other members and your peers out here would say AFTER the fact..IF I reacted..that you shouldda left this one alone.
I feel now..seeing as how you are a regular poster that you couldn't have missed the other day..and I personally don't really have time for this on a NOT AGAIN BASIS..I I JUST went through this the other day. And feel this could end be a fun thing too for someone or others to watch...or provoke. And end up in a "claw sharpening exercise" for me
I'm gonna tune out for a while. I fear that one of my reactions to personal attacks could see me banished from the site..with perhaps prior warnings from the powers that run this site that "personal attacks from other members do not give you the right to take this person apart publiclly and humiliate them especially in front of their peers"..ya I don't want/need that..neither does anyone else.
It is ski season. I have a GLUT! of equipment to deal with!..personal stuff/stuff being shipped in/out. I have a bunch of plates to make out of aluminum stock. I am fairly conversant with plastics..polyester/epoxy.. resins..cold weather high rubber content epoxies..mat/cloth/kevlar..moulds
. etc.,etc., And may try my hand at making my own plate(s)..
Good day gentlemen.
Gon..let's just say that I thing your remarks were: "ill timed" and unwise.
I'll leave it at that.
