    Lots of drama on this forum. to be precise, three pages of it on this post. I thought the joke was mildly funny. I wasn't on the floor or anything.. that being said I honestly think Whim did not mean to strike any nerves. however, his tone in the following comments and his continued insisting that every Harbor freight house NEEDS this and that and whatever else he said to be a successful house is completely unnecessary. But I have to tell you man... whether you mean to be or not, you come off as condescending in these posts. I wouldn't doubt your a great guy. Just saying you need to start considering how the author might feel (and by this I mean considering all reactions, including extreme ones, such was what some people replying to this post exhibited).
    I'm just pointing out something I have noticed, and I really don't want anyone to change their personality for me.

Whim, I can't make any personal opinions you because I do not know you. But I have to tell you man... whether you mean to be or not, you come off as condescending in a good portion of your posts concerning giving any sort of opinion or claim that challenges another person's. I understand some people on here know you better and are used to this, and I wouldn't doubt your a great guy. Just saying you need to start considering how others might feel (and by this I mean considering all reactions, including extreme ones, such was what some people replying to this post exhibited).
    I'm just pointing out something I have noticed, and I really don't want anyone to change their personality for me. Again, Just sayin'.
    Telling someone they come off as condescending qualifies as a very personal expression of one's personal opinion. Point of logic. Just sayin'........

    Post has been edited to make it less emotionally charged. Subrosa, thank you for pointing out any points of self-contradiction that may have caused others to confuse my intentions.

    Also saying "you need to start considering how others might feel" is at odds with saying "I really don't want anyone to change their personality for me". Again, just sayin'......

    what I suggest does not AT ALL mean he has to change his personality. I simply suggest to show the common courtesy of considering others feelings while posting on forums where original intentions of dialogue can be misinterpreted.
    No need to be aggressive. the post was not even directed at you. It is my opinion. I maintain it.
    This is a community built for CP growers to educate one another, not to berate each other. Sometimes, you have to address behavior that makes you feel uncomfortable when people stray from this ideal.
    I do not want a simple forum post to taint any relationships (if there was any chance of it) between myself and other members such as Subrosa or Whim alike. I know you are both skilled growers. I just simply ask Whim to consider what I have said.

    I laughed my donkey off at the ad spoof to be sure! Thank you Paul for that. I want to remind participants to public forums that they are inviting open discussion and participation on their posts however welcome or unwelcome those responses. I would hope that this thread doesn't discourage participation in this forum. In fact quite on the contrary, while this thread is proposed "dead", I hope this thread serves as inspiration for open dialogue in the future so long as that dialogue is an accurate representation of self and not just a feeble attempt at trolling the forums.

    Apparently you and I share widely different definitions of the words "need" and "aggressive". Agreeing at least upon those definitions, if not upon what levels of each we consider acceptable would seem a prerequisite to any sensible relationship. Also you would have to stop berating other forum members for the offense of berating other forum members. That's a job for the boys and girls in blue. Which raises the interesting question, do we have any female mods? Have to look into that now
