    I am a newbie here, but in the short time I have been here I have been amazed at the support people give each other. If someone is going through troubles they get honest advice, and some s.a. remarks but they are usually to lighten the situation. I don't see that many people posting replies that are just mean spirited shlt talking, there are a few but it is just a FEW compared to most here who honestly just want to help another human out. Since we don't know each other face to face there is not really anybody helping each other to help themselves, it is just in the spirit of making temselves feel a little better, not for any power or monetary gain. I am impressed by the majority here. By the way I don't agree with a bit of what I read here, but when I look at all a person says, they are almost allways good folks in the big picture. Not the way it is normally used but it is a good saying "Celebrate Diversity!" and continue supporting each other.
    Oh yeah your words were well put Round Eye!

    Cool

    Thanks everyone for your support. I was really hoping that I was not the only one that felt this way when I hit the submit button.

    I got a PM from one member saying "I was taken aback by seeing you use your actual name". While I prefer not to use my real name on a regular basis, I thought it would add to the sincerity of my post.

    I know we all won't agree on everything all the time, but I don't think a person has the right to come to this forum and insult people on a regular basis, just because it's "the Internet".

    I have had disagreements with people here from time to time, but it was just that "a disagreement".

    I guess we just need to let newbies know not to come here and make an ass of themselves and other members here.

    Well said I don't think I have seen a forum/community that holds together as well as Speedguide. It is nice knowing that if you are uncertain about something or you have an idea that you can bounce it off of a few people. I know I have thought about a lot of things and just didn't want to bring them up (and some I have forgotten now) but now I feel that I might be able to bring up issues in the future and get an honest response from people who actually do care even though they may not interact with me physically on a day to day basis.

    RoundEye, you didn't copy/paste that post from any help file.

    Well said.

    A large group of people cannot always agree. Sometimes the effort to be civil is put aside and emotion takes over. Understandable too, we're all human.
    We are all capable of making mistakes, and should learn from them. I hope I have learned a few things from some of the mistakes I've made.

    In jz's case if he would say a few happy thoughts, or help in some of the forums, it may go a long way to getting back some respect. Continuos negativism without other positive traits to balance his act will only serve to push people away.
    Just a thought.

    Forgiving is something we should all practice.

    ....carefully the wiley redneck places the HPBT shell in the magazine, and racks the finely tuned 120 grain projectile into the chamber. The bolt closes with a reassuring thud. Slowing his breathing to slow the quivering cross-hairs, the safety is pulled back, slow even pressure is applied to the trigger. Suddenly the primer ignites and the sleek bullet is whipped out of the rifle at 3000 feet per second. The 1 in 10 rifling imparting a radical spin to stabilize the flight.The rodent knows noting, as the bullet will reach his twitching ear before the sound does. Suddenly the marmot spies a Molson and ducks into his burrow, and the bullet causes a puff of dust 50' behind the entrance. Rodent wonders what that was, and then shags his mate.
