Sometimes it seems as if the BDC board was created just so it's members could insult Layne and now Dante. While I enjoy the company of many members there, I want no part of that behaviour.
I came here hoping this would not be the case. As I stated above i enjoy the company of many people here, but do not agree with the constant bashing of people I respect. I stopped by in the chat room and bashing Layne was far more important than any other topic. WTF?
As I said, I hoped it would be different, but I it looks like everyone getting along, or at least showing respect is a pipe dream.
And you preach against the "ganging up".....
BDC clique. The people who left were already familiar with each other and for a while this group dominated the board. If you disagreed with one, all of them ganged up on you
This is true. I'm sure there are people in your group who know it's true. It never bothered me that much, but plenty of people got treated in ways they did not deserve. Jason Scott asked several valid questions about the status quo and got **** on and banned as a result.
Every place has it's "ruling class." There's nothing really wrong about it, it's the way things happen. But let's not pretend that it does not exist.
You were so quick to Dantes rescue at AR, but where are you at over there taking up for me in the flaming threads about me? Oh I know! You're right along with them. So its obvious you have no respect for me or this board. You **** talk it, but have you really been here long enough to accumulate an opinion? Exactly.
Show me where I slammed you --you'll have a hard time finding any examples. The truth of the matter is that I while I have respect for you, I think you've been wrong many times. That's why I stayed out of the discussions -- it's the same reason I've stayed out the exchanges with/about Benz. I don't have to agree with everything someone says to enjoy interacting with them. By the same token, the fact that I get along with someone does not make them infallible in my eyes.
I know who most of the big players are on this board and I've known them long enough to form an opinion. I also see the open hostility displayed at bb.com. I've also stopped by a couple times without posting. I'll repeat myself again: I like many people here, but there's a lot of bull**** I don't agree with.
I'm trying to get past that, but it's looking pretty unlikely.
