I'd pay to suck up to Waldo any day- he's worth it.

This for sale posting has to have been a major bummer for Mike. First some asshole nit-picks his grammer, then he takes a heap of abuse for keeping "secrets" (read: confidential work product) and has people questiong the the value he puts on his work. I too have been the recipient of a lot of freebees from waldo- info, photos, answers to questions, and I have his buffer in my guitar. Damn right there's a hierarchy on this board and Mike's at or near the top- and he didn't get there by his good looks... :lol:

Some days I'm sure he has to wonder if it's all worth it....

And I fail to see how restating the facts as I observed them is sucking up. But Hippieguy...you're entitled to your view.

My goal is the long game. The proliferation of knowledge, and to enhance my personal playing experience. I wish we could all check our egos at the door, but that seems impossible. And I know I'm guilty as well.

I have no problems being percieved as a "suck up" I guess. My long game requires that I treat people with respect while attempting to move along in the world. And I sincerely try to not leave a trail of dog shit for others to step in. It invariably will get thrown in the back of my '87 Toyota pickup.

Peace

What this hijacked thread needs is a good theme song.

Alright "touche", but-

You'll be hearing from my lawyer, Jon. In this state it's illegal to hide a camera in someone's home without their permission...

My first and only Comes A Time. Solid show overall. Roses -> Dire Wolf was unexpected. One of my fav West La Fadeways.

The Good Lovin and JBG was a rocking ending.......

This threads not pinin'! It's passed on! This thread is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! It's stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If someone hadn't posted it here it'd be pushing up the daisies! It's metabolic processes are now 'istory! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, it's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!!

THIS IS AN EX-THREAD!!

No, no sir, it's not dead. It's resting.

Sorry to resuscitate (<---figurative use of the word? not necessarily or maybe...) this post, but i think it adds nicely to the absurdity of the argument
