FAR TOO FLIPPIN' FRIENDLY!
« on: September 01, 2009, 11:16:04 AM »

THIS FORUM IS FAR TOO FLIPPIN' FRIENDLY!

I've been a member now since September 13th 2008 - that's nearly one whole year - and not one - no, NOT ONCE - has anyone been flamed or trolled or whatever else it is that we forii are supposed to get up to. All I've had is is nice polite comment, supportive suggestions, and sometimes people have even actually, really, been helpful! It's just not on!

Come on folk - let's get stuck into one another properly! No holds barred - take no prisoners! Let's be a little more agressive in our opinions.
Here's one for starters:

I think melodeons suck!

AL


btw I'm French Polishing a 30 key wooden ended Anglo concertina  at the moment and I may have imbibed a little too much shellac ;D

I agree with Al, though I really really hate to say it.
And not only do they suck. They also blow.

Quite right. A P(ersonal) A(ssistant) is absolutely essential to move my bellows in and out for me.
At the risk of sounding (being) sexist my PA should be of the feminine gender. Which raises the
thread drift question:- are melodeons male or female?? I think mine is female as it only works
right when I'm not paying attention.

Quite agree, a discussion section on amplification would benefit many.

You get a much better finish if you apply the shellac direct to the wood,  drinking it and then breathing the fumes onto the wood is so slow.

Well,

I kinda like it around here the way it is! Sorry!

Then again, I'm using a glue that's making me rather cheery, rather than the depressing shellac!
