I got the PM's this time round too. I promised not to out him, as he was supposedly just reading posts. Nothing wrong with that, but I had no Idea he was PMing other members too. Glen feels this forum is very "clicky", & operates at the exclusion of others. I suppose it's easy to mistake a group of enthusiastic posters who just happen to get along, for some sort of exclusive club - if you're centered on it.
I couldn't believe Larry got berated for expressing an opinion about drums on a drum forum. Strange eh. Just for the record, the content of Glen's PM's to me were not insulting, but the subject matter was fairly predictable.
Markadiddle - welcome - & you may want to drag these to your desktop for later use ;)
Thanks for the welcome! I guess I never understood being "clicky" in a forum. We're all on a quest to become better drummers. Why not help one another? Isn't that what these forums are for? I understand that yes, sometimes egos and pride get in the way. Sometimes people just have to agree to disagree and move on. I join these forums to try and learn and gain experience from others. I also like to share what I know in hopes that it might help others.
Glen has been nothing but a nice guy over on the other forum. I don't really want to have any preconceived notions when it comes to the guy. Innocent until proven guilty. I should have realized that from the start. If the guy does turn in to Glen-Jekyll or Glen-Hyde, well, that's for the mods to sort out. It's easy enough to ignore trolls.
