That shows the good judgment and restraint on your Gong Show Power Jeff, and that is cool!! I mean that!!
I however hade no such response and something else that is bothering me is the simple fact that we vote our officials in, but no vote was asked to any member that I know of on this matter of swift justice to be dealt out to any would be offender! I once was a President of a club Tim, and the first thing I learned by way of interruption by a former Perez, was to take a Vote on any new subject!!!!!!!! And not to just pass it into bylaws!
I never even received a absentee vote PM, now is it the policy of the Sub Committee officials to now hand out bylaws when the mood or need, some say occurs? I first joined the this group back in 1996 I think, and it was no more than some 300 or so guy's that wrote about R/Cing subs, by way of a quarterly magazine. Yes they elected each other and they wrote how to's and really neat stuff about subs.
It lead the way for a small crack pot few to get together and read and write , and even play once a year, it was the Sub Committee, I left, and in 04 I came back looking fore that, but much has changed, oh I now that was then but this is now. The sad part is back then their was no internet to converse on, and the phone, the magazine was the way they all talked. With very minimal, mind you bull crap to go back and forth!!
And I will say here to day a better group of men and women were around, call me an ass, or old fashion, but the old gang has been dissolved! But I must add a very new gang of talent has come forth, to fill the post pages!
Now we come along with the greatest tool we have (The Internet) to show and tell, and the truth is many can not Handel it, the mama boy's run rapid with the I will cry till I get my way crap! And their is always some one their to hold their hand, or want to be their hero just to the Left.
The posts seems to cancel out all the bad words some feel the need to express themselves with, but you must know Boys will be Boys, and then throw in their toy's and a key board bad ass at home, hey a real bad mix you will have their!
But what to do, well for one if the term WE THE PEOPLE means anything, then perhaps we can vote on it as R/C sub people and stop the behind the scene discussion making!!! That is my problem, and than their is the person pushing the button, will we here form him something like "This is going to Hurt me a lot more than you"? I don’t think so pal, I am not to be herded, I am A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, I am the President of my own Corporation, that I made with my own two hands, and I am a fair man to work fore, yes rules are their, but nothing silly I ashore you!!
I think, and I chose to read what I want too. I think it is simple to do, to pass on what you do, and to chose what you do not wish to read, defiantly the term "Take it outside Boys” should apply here, and I propose that as a alternative to casting out a member or slapping him down for his opinions, a moderator just steps in and locks the post, hell it works at SubPirates just fine!!!! But hey that is just me thought, did you ask the rest of the members. And all should, or the majority should rule on a mans fate. I think when the many let the few think for them, and then I wonder why any body would want to be part of that!!
So I say let's see a vote on your new Law!
