Frankly, my raising a topic isn’t an indication of boredom - excuse me. Again, Ben has discussed it in the past and I care what forum members think even if you don’t.
You many not care (or may be bored by it even as @Deere_Crossing thought it interesting) - and that’s OK; however, to dismiss my topic by saying I’m “clearly bored” is rude.
I think you still don’t get it. I will try again to say I had no “agenda” for Ben specifically. If I did, I know I could ask him by email. My Banjo is busted anyway (no Clawhammer for me) and I do have enough on my plate with Mandolin, piano and writing and I have a family also. but I am not here to compare.
Do you remember Gunnar’s poll about would we be here if not for Earl? Hypothetical. No real outcome that would drive website direction… but it was an interesting discussion topic - which is also a part of the site forum, as I recall - or am I wrong about that?
It was my interest of knowledge from forum members because I was curious about their interests so don’t twist this into something it isn’t.
Still, I respect your opinion… but I will remind you that what you like or find interesting may not be interesting to everyone either. Or… I guess you want us to reply that “You’re clearly bored” and wasting Ben’s time when discussing Scottish Accents, for example?
Nope, I wouldn’t do that.
As for using the @ symbol, I know the purpose of it but I also see using it as part of etiquette so people know they are mentioned - so they know. I didn’t think that one or multiple mentions would constitute a huge distraction. I will curb use of the @ symbol on your advisement… so thanks for that.
Well, you say you are not offended even after I apologized… but you keep replying, for what reason, I don’t know… as these discussions are tedious and boring. As it turns out, you wasted a lot of time responding to a hypothetical topic
