Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

I'm beginning to smell troll.

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

I dunno.. seems plausible to me, but I'm still waiting on a big deposit from a Nigerian pal I met online who emailed me recently about a really sweet deal (I'll spill the beans about it once my big payday arrives), so...

I have faith in people, and I have a great feeling about Bentwire

I will reserve opinion

If spelling were a requirement however I would have been banned after my 10th post.

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

Well I'm about to sign off for the day. Why do I think Fast and JH might be in for a hectic time while I'm away ?

Yeah I know, sometimes they really do seem to be asking for it.

Have fun chaps but sometimes though it smells like a troll and acts like a troll its just a wee gremlin and we have to give it the benefit of the doubt. For awhile, at least.

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

I read this and was very amused. You start off with a grumpy attitude in the chat, then dig the knife in deeper by whining about the "poor" treatment in chat, and you wonder why the regulars (with whom, on any given topic, I don't always agree, but whose feedback is still VERY much appreciated and who, if you actually DID read the site as you claimed, are generally well respected) circled the wagons? Then Andrew resurrects this thread out of nowhere after it died a very timely death over a year ago, and your first reaction is to come back with the same "friendly" attitude? Dude, let it go and just move on. Clearly this site, which has been extremely welcoming to most of the people I've seen since I joined, isn't meant for you.

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

Hello
my name is Thomas, I am a Federal firearms Dealer in Kansas, I enjoy sailing hunting and traveling the world, deep sea fishing and spending time with others from different cultures brings me great pleasure. I enjoy scuba, snorkeling, and water in general.. I have traveled over most of the Caribbean and central America,as well as the Philippines. I ask that you please accept my apology to anyone whom i offended and humbly ask that I might start over in my introduction, I have had some most regrettable experiences in trying to understand certain cultures but, i try very hard and am always open minded.
again I gracefully offer my most humble apology to anyone i may have offended
thank you
Bentwire
