I've seen him attacked for giving his opinion.

Below is a good example I think, in this thread, of someone attacking another group and another member... and goes way beyond an opinion.
fair point. But some of highstarters opinions were demonstrably untrue. For example his assertion that it costs one million dollars to set up production for a mouldy was factually wrong and he did tend to argue the point.

Doesn't it take two people to argue?

But quite honestly, obnoxious behavior is something that I am not well versed on.
Perhaps it is because I discuss everything honestly, I don't recognize when I become a bit overbearing.

Perhaps others have this issue as well, and are accused of things they are not guilty of.

This thread almost belongs in LTUP.

Some may think I attacked Al but if you read my posts, you'd know that all I ever wanted him to do was to leave me alone... and he wouldn't... You should have seen some of his email messages to me. They were incredibly insulting and hateful. So, if you think I judged him harshly, you're correct, but not without reason. I am just incredibly glad he never got my phone number.

I truly hope this fellow doesn't become another of these... though some think he's there already.

That's too bad Schrederman... I understand that some people really used to abuse the pm function as well.
Fortunately, they have made that against the rules now.

You should read the rules then.

Each poster is responsible for their own posts.

EDIT :
I just checked and I saw that your post was reported and found to be in violation of site rules.
I tried to warn you.
Further, it should be noted that I did not report this post... someone else did.
You might be surprised how many people read these forms and do not post.

This is all just a manifestation of the seedy side of online forums ... the ability to advance one's self as an expert without any real-world expertise and the unfortunate desire of human beings to show they are better than others around them.

Just look at Facebook postings about politics, race relations, you name the topic and you can find the haters.

The anonymity afforded by using online handles makes some think they can never be tracked down ... well, the moderators are fairly experienced with weeding out those members. And, as Kenny said, it's true about how many read but never post ... all you have to do is look at the number of posts, number of posters, and the number of reads and you have some idea how many are in the "Silent Majority"

Way to go Phil....My wondering exactly, did he sell the glider! LOL

I don't care who rants....Let them!

I can easily ignore a posting...and go to the next like it was never there.

I don't give much time to such things....they just thrive on such attention.

It started out as an ad, then blossomed into so much more!

It's one of the funniest things I've read in a while, god bless the poor bloke. At any rate this sort of example can make you feel a little better about yourself if you are a little better balanced, sad as that sounds... All the best to him.

Hey, we should get a gas guy to buy it and stick a slimmer in it's nose, do a mod thread on it! just kidding, of course..

Easy there.
If you like making comments like those, you might want to try out, life the universe and politics.

That's what I think, since you asked.
