    Default ...sorry...

    I'd like to personally apologise to the mods, to the OP of the thread, and to Performance Boats and it's audience in general for my involvement in the "Attn: cstraub...need a good post..." thread. No excuses. I've made a strong effort to keep my posting to the point on most threads and not get involved in this sort of thing. It was unnecessary and unprofessional. I appreciate this site and the opportunity to be helpful when possible and also the opportunity to promote myself and my business and I realize this is no way to "show the appreciation". CStraub, I also apologise to you for enabling someone to come out and belittle and slander you as they have. You're a great asset to this boating community and someone I consider a friend and it was irresponsible of me to allow this to happen.

    Well said Scott!

    I got caught up in this deal and let it get to me and I appologize to all for the remarks made in poor taste. It was no help to the board, the thread or the people of this board and all it did was put fuel on a fire that should never have been started in the first place. The last thing the world needs is more drama and I appologize sincerly for adding to it.

    Sorry Folks!

    Scott, Chris and Jay, ya'll got nothing to be sorry for. You guys are a hell of a resource for those of us that know just enough to get into trouble. Personally, I appreciate the input and hope ya'll stick around.

    Gentlemen,

    A very wise friend of mine told me " Never get in a yelling match with an idiot in public; 99% of passersby will not know who the idiot is"

    Something to keep in mind.

    Wow, Rex usually fire's a shot across the bow before he does that. He must have been pissed.

    I stayed out of the "drama" part of the thread as I did on some other recent threads as I have found I will stand on my reputation with customers instead of trying to argue my reputation with people who have never had a business dealing with me. Am I human, yes and I have and will make mistakes but it is how you handle the mistakes that tells if you are a man.

    It was looking a lot like any 70% of the threads over in "Political Rhetoric".
    I actually saw the train wreck waiting to happen from the first post, just had to wait for it to pick up speed before hitting the corner at the bottom of the hill.

    That shot was fired a couple months ago Sleeper at least to one member which was the reason for my firm but still restrained response.

    And yes it pisses me off when I warn and they are ignored. I have learned in the political forum that one warning either works or it does not. And that continuous warnings are just a form of babysitting and don't work so I'm no longer going to use them to a large degree. I'm not a babysitter.

    Trying to make this forum an improvement over the prior one with ownership's wishes in that regard in mind. If people have disagreements state your case in a "respectable" manner and then shut up. Continuing on, page after page, drama, name calling, intent to damage reputations, etc has no place here. Make no mistake, if this type of thing continues or reoccurs in future threads from the same participants, memberships will be compromised without future warning or explanation.

    I appreciate the apologies. Thanks.
