    Default A little humility never hurts...

    Disregard: Due to some enlightening information provided.

    See Steve's all to often crow-eating, apology giving, non researching, pitiful diplomatting, sorry ass quite a few posts down...

    Sorry guys/gals apparently this is a less-than-savory individual.

Respect is earned, not given automatically, and I think a little humility is in order.

    There are times when I have screwed up here---and I got with both barrels. Did I deserve it?...probably, no, make that a YES. I apologized and took a different approach. Hell, I ended up in the "Hall of Shame" 3 times in my first month. I had to adapt, and I did.

    There's an old saying that goes: "It's best to eat crow while it is still warm."

    How true. Maybe a different approach on your part is needed--or different attitude. We all make mistakes--not a big deal, take the high road and move forward.

    Just some advice.
    Nice post Steve and I felt the same way early on about the "gangin up" thing but I quickly lost sympathy. You're very eloquent post will fall on deaf ears I'm afraid as many times similar advice has been offered and refused.

    I too had some less than pleasant exchanges when I first arrived, but I quickly understood how it worked and only took me about 5-7 posts to learn how to integrate myself and my idea's. Respect is earned around here and not given just because...............

    You know Russman use to hate me. Then he posted this picture of a really ugly girl. I told him I would do him before I'd do that chick---he's liked me ever since. ;)

    You had also not been banned from a bunch of internet audio forums on the net either. What's the old saying...a leopard never changes it's spots.



    The sooner "permanently gone" the better. The ignore feature is good to a degree but it still clutters up the forum. It takes a village to raise a child....so maybe it takes an entire forum to run off an idiot.

    Attitude = everything
    Attitude for Ka7niq = awful.

    i.e. everything about Ka7niq is awful.

    Man, love the transitive properly. Or, is that reflective? Either way, let's get rid of him. How is Ka7niq being a part of this community a good thing? Has he contributed anything that could be mistaken for worthwhile?

    I think the leopard "Oufit" consists of bottoms only and a lot of paint ;)

    I could not think of a better way of saying what you wrote. Here Here job well done.
    The hardest part of forums is you don't know how the next person will take
    what you write. Face to face or on the phone you can visual or use voice inflections to set the tone of what you have to say.

    This is a great forum but humble pie needs to be eating or it will be administered. LOL

    What a beautiful day in the neighborhood,

    Janmike smacked me around once and I am far better for it. Everyone needs to take their medicine every now and again. (I hope you're freezing your butt off up in yellowknife . . . 51st state wannabe). . . ahem. Being humble and taking responsibility for your actions takes practice. Thanks.

    Live and learn, its what makes us better people, right? I have eaten my share of humble pie, and it sucks sometimes, but I deserved every serving.
