Maybe he doesn't appreciate some one's opinion of how they know much better than him about how he should format his ad! Give him a break!
Also, how well a person is established in a forum has no bearing on anything except to suck ups!
Are you the lower-case alter ego of machinefunk1987? Because you're missing the same point as him.
I offered a friendly suggestion about how to HELP the guy sell his guitar, and he shoves it back down my throat via email and now on here. I left it alone until he told me "to get a fuckin' life and stay the fuck out of mine, you TROLL!!!" There's no need for that.
Also - he's not dying. He said "my Stage IV Colon Cancer is in remission." The people I've met who have undergone successful cancer treatments have had a very different attitude than this guy.
As an aside, your signature says "speak kindly." I'm not sure how that motto fits in with calling someone a moron.
And as another aside -- "He apologized once". Really? I must have missed that. Was it before or after he called me a troll and told me to fuck off?
Granted: I should have called strumminsix a knuckle head instead of a moron and that would have been kind, in this situation. I'm usually not a name caller. I apologize for slackin. Also, I'll go back when I have more time and find the "I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings" or something like that. Im sure I read it. I'll find it.
I don't know this man from adam! I just clicked on the original link that was posted. The first thing that popped into my head was getting him here and spread the word about his illness, not trying to start telling him how to sell his guitar. That is because,
Everyone is different. Everyone sees and feels everything different.
Everyone is an Individual.
Everyone reacsts to everything differently.
Especially illness and dying from illness when you are not ready or any tradegy.
You can't tell a human how to feel or react. That is you. Not them/him.
As far as he is concerned, he is dying. He knows the satistics. That is him. Not you. That is how he feels about it and you certainly can't falt him for that.
You can't change that no matter how much you feel you know better or can rationalize it better or want to control (if that is the cast..although I doubt it).
Of course, to you, as well as myself and many others, your friendly advice was just that. Maybe with a slight twinge of "let me tell you how to make it better" motivation.
He did not take it that way! He became angry. I'm sure he didn't enjoy that. It sucks for him a lot more than you or us.
So, what do a few of you guys do? Reprimand him and ridicule him. Wow, I don’t know man. It doesn’t work for me. "the angry crowd" mentality is lurking there.
I'm sure there is some minor point or induendo I'm missing here, I always do, but you are missing the big point
