The situation
« on: 10, November, 2012 - 16:28:10 »
Hello again.

After a false start and my subsequent departure from the forum including the removal of the pictures and all that I wrote I received a number of requests to return to this forum.
The reason why I landed here on this forum was the hope to find some other(s) who would share some knowledge about the C5 because I wanted to build me something what resembles a C5 but not an updated replica.  And so one should look at all possible options even possible outrageous ones and hoped to find here something.

After posting some threads I felt that in my opinion that at a certain moment the atmosphere on the forum changed to kind of state that I didn’t liked at all. For me it even worked contra productive. I had the idea to give up the whole project. And that all because of the fact I posted here some threads.

Now I’m in a kind of balancing act.  On one side to start fresh anew and forget everything what happened with the option that it could happen again and on the other side to go my own way in the relative calmness of my workshop and remove my account here.  I know what a number of you would advise me but still it stays my problem.

So it takes me some time to find out if  what I really wanted to do.  Maybe onetime you will see the result of my decision or maybe never.

Don't let one person's comments stop you from trying your ideas and posting them.

I am sure that if this continued or re-occured then Karl (BooBoo) would put a stop to that persons account.

This is to be a helpful and friendly forum and there are other issues in the world than this crap.

My opinion - Lance

I think we have explored this situation enough for now and it is time to draw a line under it and move on.

This topic will be locked to reflect that .
