My goals are primarily to learn more about something I love to do and have a few laughs along the way.

FWIW, half the friends I have, were people I first met on the internet, none of whom I considered a friend after twenty or thirty posts.

So true....welcome aboard Diz.

Then that's good. It takes time to get to know people.

Have you been a long time member on another internet site?

Thank you, Phil.

Bonni, I do post occasionally at Curevents.com but I've been a Yahoo Finance board regular since the mid to late 90's.

Hey what's all this talk about "if I don't get banned" ? People don't get banned easily around here, and not for saying things that piss people off. People get banned for personal attacks, strong insulting language and other things as outlined in the Terms and Conditions.

You mean when you said this in post #114?

"Now, let me as a paying customer tell you this . As i have some authority in my circle (i'm Polish, living in USA) i will spread the word around. As my profesion is IT business and it's fairly easy to track you down, i will make huge anti-advertisement for all of you."

That statement could certainly be perceived as a threat (economic rather than physical) against two or three members of this community.

We don't like threats here. It's a clear violation of the terms and conditions of this board. You agreed to those T's & C's when you registered.

Having said that, I see your posts as essentially harmless (although pretty hard to follow).

Welcome to Epic. :

Bob, thank goodness he didn't say he was Sicilian...

Bob, I agree that what you quoted was a threat and much worse than I had realized.

TAG, I am totally insulted now being Sicilian myself, what a stereotype!










Oh wait, I'm not Sicilian - what was I thinking?

OK, SMJ, thank goodness he didn't say he was a killer shark and the "Jaws" theme didn't start thumping in the background...

Beta Racer does work for Atomic. I have seen him doing it at Whistler.
post #45 of 57
I'm more of a newbie that the rest of you, and have stepped in it a few times myself, not least for a really undiplomatic first ever post. I also got hammered so bad in the instruction area once for a simple (I thought) technical question that I left and haven't gone back. So this thread interested me. I went back and waded through the entire eBay/Atomic thread. Conclusions from an outside observer:

1) The web already has waay too much opinion and waay too little information. Although I haven't read you before, Betaracer, hope any rep/dealer/industry expert will stay around. Enriches all, even through disagreements.

2) Peer pressure seemed to work. Which is good, because the "tough skin" argument gets old when you're the one being hammered.

2) But the person called Mocny issued personal threats, which I understand to be a violation of this site's rules, and I'm unclear if he's still allowed to post. If he is, I'd like to know why from a moderator. Being sorry later about losing your temper shouldn't cut it here anymore than it would if you threaten someone face to face.

Beyond]2,

Thanks for checking back in. You asked for a Mod and you got one. I believe that people can get off ont he wrong foot, Mocny was one of them. If you read on he has since apologized. The time from of the accusations (not threats) and appology was not that long. He was not the only one in the thread that let things get "personal". IMHO, the hole thread had been beaten to death like a dead horse, as I have posted.

Nevertheless, I'm beginning to understand why they stopped using monkeys in the space program.

In the interest of diversity shouldn't it be the ultimate PC or Mac post?

Well, it's nice to see people getting lighthearted around here again! That was my aim.

I just hope that BetaRacer is starting to feel better about coming back... yoo-hoo, are you there BetaRacer? Are you going to come back? You are missed...

At least Jason made them an offer they couldn't refuse.... (Sorry, couldn't resist).

Now seriously: Betaracer, I've just posted my first few posts in Epic but I've been following the website for almost two years now. I've learned a lot about Atomic ski technology and tuning tips from your posts. This is the Internet, so bashing is always around. You also have been abrasive in the past and people at the other end have not left but took the advice (or not) with a bit of salt. Don't be inmature and stick around.

I meant that in good fun, and Mocny apparently realized it. That's a problem with written exchanges...it's hard to tell jest from lack of civility.

Fair enough.




























Now go back to your Polish lessons
