Naw, he's actually a good guy, and I have a big mouth. You see, I got into hobbyist forums rather late in life. And like a dang fool, I told the truth about who I am.
The problem with doing something that stupid in these forums is that most people lie like a rug. For example, there was a karate self-defense forum where the guy didn't know fighting at all, in fact, his real purpose was to sell combat gear. He was exposed by another forum called "Bullshido."
Lately I have grown so sick and tired of fakers that my patience is paper thin. That same forum and mod were discussing Bowie knives. I had the idea for a charity event. The mod sent me a PM stating that the guys answering the thread were "mostly posers."
This isn't my first trip to the kissing booth. I've found biker forums where the guys don't own bikes, combat forums where the guys haven't taking shooting training--in fact one of the women who freely admits she has no formal training works for a combat magazine.
I'm done with these guys. I am a member of KnifeForums.com
which has a section called "Keeping Sharp"
where professional tinkers gather. I like it here for much the same reason.
But don't judge this mod too harshly. He's got a tough job. He has to sift out the whiners, keep peace and negotiate with me.
His daughter sounds like she needs our help. Can you (editorial 'you') at least provide links to a better diet?
