Then feel free to start a business and think of people however you want. I'll continue to use the forums as forums, and judge people by the quality of their words. Not pretend their shit is gold just because they visit.
I've built my entire reputation around honesty. That's what's important to me. If people don't like it - they have all the freedom in the world to not read what I write. But I sleep better at night, and respect myself more ... knowing I'm true to myself in what I do. I wouldn't be doing this for over 10 years if I had to be fake. And people wouldn't trust me if they thought I was just blowing smoke up their ass so as not go step on any toes.
Saying he thought TDS were boring live is different than declaring them boring and a bad fit on a tour. That's the difference. He can think they're boring all he wants. Don't care at all. Pretending that his views are universal - in light of overwhelming evidence to the contrary - is what I have issue with.
IE: it appears to be trolling.
I love being lectured about "talking down to someone" by being talked down to ...
I can dig that, and I get it. but why can't you be nicer about it? what does calling anyone an idiot get for you? even beyond this being your website, i'm saying on just a person to person level. like listen man, i've been here like 6 years now, i honestly like the way you do things, that's why i've stuck around. i just don't see why you have to insult people like that, it's completely unnecessary, and you're obviously smarter than that.
i'm not talking down to you at all. i'm just saying, as some of the older people here, let's not call names.
