This is some of the most amazing bullshit it has ever been my displeasure to have to sit through. Marshamallow, I don't know you, I don't know where you're from or who firmly lodged the rocks into that otherwise apparently thick and empty skull of yours. What I do know is that you have done the impossible. You have soured a guy who couldn't be soured. That is some fucking achievement. That took real brass, man.... between your ears. And just you know where this is coming from, yes, I've known Lane for a fair while now, not just professionally but socially and consider him among my friends. I know other people who know him also and to a person every single one of them has the same opinion of the guy: unflappable, mild mannered, generous (to a fault, now it seems) and about as smooth, tenacious and smart as they come. Unlike me, with probably a bit more attitude than I should have and a hair trigger temper, Lane just doesn't snap at people, dig his heels in or have a problem admitting his mistakes. Everything with him is take a step, analyze, go back if you have to. If he was half as unreasonable as your tiny mind is trying to play up here, he wouldn't be as nearly as respected as he is or very good at his fucking job. Since he is both very well respected and excellent at his job, guess who's the jerk here? Right. It's you. Let me tell you guys something; there's some serious bullshit going around this place lately and this is just the latest symptom. The moderators seem to have some half-assed "free speech" concerns about it; that's their problem. I've moderated forums before, too, there's a way to do it without being a censor and this ain't it. I'd match my knowledge of that subject against any moderator here and believe me, if their idea of "freedom of expression" is allowing ignorant and often prejudiced, judgmental assholes to dominate the conversations and run people off, they don't stand a chance against what I know about it. This isn't the first time that some really talented, good natured and intelligent people who have real contributions to make have had genuine cause to feel insulted, under appreciated by the ignorant, mean spirited, self-aggrandizing crap around here and be justified in telling the whole group to go fuck itself. And yeah, the moderators know what the fuck I'm talking about whether they ultimately choose to continue playing stupid notwithstanding. If that's what this place is about, who gives a shit? Frankly, you can have it. As for you, Marsha - mallow, you've made it exceedingly clear that you're just another ill mannered knot head in over his questionable brains on a project you likely had no business getting involved in in the first place; embrace the horror. The fact that you're lacking in brains and talent isn't your fault; perhaps you should go kick your parents for that. That you chose to be a douche bag about your ignorance and an ingrate on top of it is very much your fault. Well played. And before anybody starts in about how this kind of noise about something as ubiquitous as an amplifier repair is a bit over the top, let's get this much straight right here, right now; This is about you being an ass. For insulting my friend, though, when he gave you a lot of his time, talent and input for NOTHING and being a prime reason of why he's sick of this place, you earn a very big Fuck You. Congratulations. We're all very, very impressed. I'm sure the rest of the world is, too.
