Speaking of class acts . . . . .  Roll Eyes


There is a difference in discussing an issue VS. posting comments that need to be deleted.

Then there are those who delight in pushing certain 'hot buttons' that are sure to send the 'victim' into orbit.

Let's not forget those who stir the pot. (who? Me?)   Shocked



I suppose it could be argued that being a busnut & acting responsibly are mutually exclusive.  Grin




And for those who have never picked their own cotton, the time spent picking cotton seemed like the longest minutes there were!   Sad

cotton picken minute = New York minute= 60 cotton picken, New York seconds.

There is a great beauty to metaphor.  "Warm as her lips" and "warm is piss" both equal 98.6 degrees.  Yet we would seem to have a preference.

As far as the buses go.  The first was started by the PO and completed by us.  The second was said to be a professional conversion, but was certainly altered since.  We have continued, and will continue, to make alterations.  Come to think of it, it was the same with my first motorhome, a Pace Arrow.  It seems that RV's in general lend themselves to being works-in-progress.

My point is usually on top of my head!  Shocked


Discussing different points of view is good.
To stir the pot can be good too, if it helps further the discussion.

However, posting stuff that requires the moderators to intervene is irresponsible.
Posting stuff just to send someone into orbit, well, what's the point? to show others you're a bully?

We all have our moments, just some more than others.

Maybe I missed something! Didn't see where anyone was being a bully! And as far as the moderators getting involved? Don't they always?  Roll Eyes

By the way, I had the privilege of seeing first hand two of your stable mates! All I can say is, I'm glad I went the route I went!  Grin

BS, you are not the sole subject of all my posts, although you do inspire some.  Grin

I'll bet I'm not the only one who knows who the "BOO" remark was for. Shocked

And of course the moderators got involved to clean things up. Sometimes, that is what it takes to keep things friendly.  Cool
The biggest problem of deleting posts - others can't know what was deleted, & that leads to confusion later.  Undecided

By the way, I had the privilege of seeing first hand two of your stable mates! All I can say is, I'm glad I went the route I went!  Grin
BS

And you're welcome for the privilege.  Grin Cool  I'm happy for you that you're glad with the route you chose.
Believe it or not, I'm not the only one who is happy with the route I'm on. But I am glad there aren't many seeking that route, I wouldn't like to be faced with the futureliner pricing! Grin  I might have to step down to an MCI or (gasp) a Prevost.  Grin  Shocked  Roll Eyes  Tongue  Wink

This busnut community would be awfully booring if everyone thought alike.


On a similar note, not everyone has the same needs or goals, so I wonder what people get out of putting down the path others choose?

So to everyone in this sometimes crazy hobby, I wish you nothing but success & happiness in the path of YOUR choosing.  Grin

Peace out

90 Total votes thus far.

I know there must be many more out there!

Out of over 1700 members I can only imagine that there must be a lot of bus-less bus-nuts.

Come on folks, vote if you have not done so..............PLEASE............... Grin Grin
