(Beware RANT) Wheres the Christmas spirit.
« on: August 02, 2015, 06:55:08 AM »
I just got banned from a Facebook group for posting about F16V2 progress. That makes one Facebook group and one major forum I will not name since I started in this hobby. I thought we are all in this together, to try and make the best light show for least cost. It seems some want to stifle progress for who knows what reasons. I am a little bummed but will continue in my efforts. :(

Wow.  I see.  What's really funny is while they removed today's 60 ft post all your earlier posts about the Falcon 16 v2 are still there....odd....and sad....this is a community and we should all support each other (even when we don't always agree - there's more than one way to do just about anything).

A number of the forums have a community spirit. Others just seem to want you to promote other their brand of goodness and control.....

David,
don't feel bummed by the action of this person, obviously this person ego feel you as a threat !!!

I have seen posting by this person in his group as claiming the soul supporter of a product, this person has since removed that statement, knowing this person claims was false.

Yes it is very sad and lots of community and  "Quote" we should all support each other (even when we don't always agree - there's more than one way to do just about anything).


This is one of the main reasons I've been truly enjoying the falconchristmas form group and glad to say I'm a supporter of this group.

In simple saying I've seen people like this with there's egos ending up burning up there own bridges!!.

Dave, just remember that for every one complaint, i'd guess there are about 100 others who say nothing, but truly appreciate all the hard work you do for this hobby.  Don't let 'em get you down!

some people are sensitive to vendors who don't contribute to the forums in a meaningful manner besides selling a product.

But this is your forum here Dave, name some names and we can go complain :)

No need to protect the guilty.  I thought it would be a lor forum myself, they are in general a protective community.

David, I moved over to Falcon equipment because it is superior equipment. Xlights for the same reason. Until the day we pass on people will talk about others and knock them down. Small minds. I would just forget about it and move on. Look at all of the good times we all had at the Academy's and Expo. That is where your friends and supporters are.

I must admit I am one of the hundreds who say nothing.  So here is my +1.  Thank you David for all you do! You have made such a huge contribution to this hobby and we cannot thank you enough!

Thank you again,

Brian
