I would like to concur with this.
Thanks for the example Dan.

This has to be one of the most bizarre threads in SSS history, and believe me, that covers a LOT of threads.

In order to make things easier for newcomers, here is the condensed version:

Scott: I am not an asshole.
Reply Variation 1: Yes you are.
Reply Variation 2: No, he isn't.
Reply Variation 3: Welcome to the boards, Scott! Don't be an asshole.
Reply Variation 4: Welcome to the boards, Scott! You don't seem to be an asshole at all.

Okay! From now on, we can all save a lot of time if you just type the appropriate "reply variation number" for your post. Thank you for your cooperation.

Welcome Scott.

While no one involved is completely innocent, I believe this was a gross misunderstanding. It would have been proper for someone to redirect you to the other post. However, since then you HAVE exhibited quite the chip on your shoulder. So relax and know, you got off EASY.

The following thread was, I believe, the first topic I posted, on GM's forum. In case you don't read it, after repeated attacks, I finally told AJ I would no longer respond to his posts, unless he had a real comment to make. I said I I couldn't stop them from posting, but I wouldn't pay any attention to him. So let people get blue in the face if they wish. Not likely it will impact your life. :rolleyes: ;\)

In the future, I'd suggest you ask for clarification before railing on someone's comments about you or your posts. It was mentioned by Craig that you can't see the smile/frown associated with a comment. Believe me, I understand this well. I nearly lost a job because someone misconstrued my comments. Thank goodness posting here probably doesn't carry that much weight. ;\)

Craig, would it be ok if I request a Reply Variation #5?

5. I really couldn't care less.

Is this reasonable? If it causes friction - sorry - that's not my intention. Just wondering if it's an acceptable option..

I realize I'm not an influential presence on this forum, and my request won't carry much weight, but if this request is reasonable without prejudice, can this be a consideration?

Peace,

Harold

Wow...

Scott, I welcome you to the board. You`ve passed the test, been raked over the virtual hot coals. I don`t know if it was yet another test in your life, but you answered my questions with surprising humility. I am impressed.

Yes, it was the wrong way to do it. But its the past. I sincerely hope the rest of the members will do as I, put this thread behind them and welcome Scott as the resource/human he is. I look forward to reading your stuff.

Ciao

Wow,

What a night/day I had yesterday...

First of all, this will be my last post in this thread (NOT in the forum, but this thread)...

I would like to thank EVERYBODY for their honesty and for their attempts to point me in the right direction, all in their own way...each had their own valid angle and I appreciate each one, though it didn't seem like it at the time...

Ok...

I have some apologies to make and some promises...

Please know that I am deadly serious...

To Craig:

I am sorry for the way this turned out...I hope you understand that my intentions were to become a PART of the community, not to overtake it...

I hope you can forgive me, for any part I played in creating this mess...

To everyone else:

I apologize for my misunderstandings, and for misreading much of what was said...my fault entirely...

So, no more defensiveness...

I apologize for presenting myself in such a prideful way...

I really am sorry...

This truly is enirely my fault that I allowed myself to weaken and become so hostile...

I'm sorry, I hope you guys can give me another chance in here, in spite of the mess this has become...

I really try to live a humble life and walk without pride, but I am human, my weaker nature and passion got the better of me...

I hope that I can start over in here, it seems like there are some truly amazing people to know and connect with, so I ask for another chance at this...

Anyway, thanks again...everybody...for your incredible, and in depth replies...you were all trying to help...

And now, I'm outta here...I'll be listening to everyones's music this week, as much as I can, and hope to offer something back...

Thank you, and again...I am sorry...

Peace,

Scott

It's all very complicated, but it goes something like this.

2,1,3,2,4,1,2,4,2,3,1,4,2,1,4,3,4,2,3,13

About two weeks ago, another new poster was in a similar situaton as you (Scott) -- he wanted other folks to listen to his music and comment and wasn't receiving any feedback. Check out how it turned out and then look at the last few pages in the "Is Your Music Any Good" thread... So, no -- we don't haze newcomers here.

But his request turned out a lot better than yours. Why? Because he listened first, and took what appeared to be a genuine interest in other people before he expected people to take an interest in him.

Still giving Scott another chance,

LOL - if this forum was limitted to a certain amount of "chances", I would have got the boot LOOOOOONG ago.. \:D

Don't worry about anything, scott - but I would suggest taking the above opinions in - these guys definitely know their own tolerance levels.. ;\)

Actually, I break in to your pad when nobody is home and sit on all the furniture.

By the way, you might want to think about getting a new hair brush. :p

Shhhh.... Neil is suffering from advanced Schizophrenia. (See Dan South's explanation of Me, Myself and I HERE ). He thinks he is all three. I suspect he is also sparky and lakersrule but I can't prove it. \:D

It's gonna be cool Steve. I'm gonna check out your stuff tonight. I wasn't going to until I read your last post. This thread has made me interested in what your music is like. It must be really good.
