Default Just So's You Know...

I'm taking a break from the forum. LONG break. Might even be permanent. I've had a belly full of dealing with dolts, lip flappers, boors and jerks; people who ask questions and then get bent out of shape because the answer isn't what they wanted to hear; people who know more than anyone else about archery - but everything they know is flat wrong.

That's never been a problem on the Traditional Forum for me, but I don't have the discipline to stay off the bowhunting and tech forums while I'm here. Plus, it's really bugging me that I can't shoot any of my bows any longer and my temper is really short. Withdrawals, I guess. So, my best course of action is to just stay away.

If ever I can be any help to anyone, or if you just wanna talk, shoot me a PM. I get e-mail alerts to PM's so I'll be sure and respond.

You're a great bunch and I've had a great time. This is a see-ya-later, not a goodbye.

Arthur-You will be missed! I always look forward to your posts and your answersto questions. You are by far and away one of the most knowledgable members on this board. I understand how the short bus crowd can get on your last nerve, but don't let them run you off for good. Take a break if that's what you need, but come back as soon as you can. Many here benefit from your help.

But I do know how you feel as I have said on the phone more than once, I can't understand why people ask questions then turn around and argue about the answer they are given.

Oh and sorry about last Sunday had a few honey do's to do and could not get out of them.[:@]

Damn you Art!![:@] You are one of my favorites on this forum. Not just the Traditional forum but the bow hunting forum as well. I'm going to have to PM you and get your # if you don't mind me doing so. You've got more info between them ears on these Traditional bows or I should say all makes and kinds of bows then anyone I've ever met. I've sent so many guys on here in your direction when they've come to me with Tech questions on the Traditional bow set ups that I couldn't answer. I do understand where your coming from though with some of the BS that goes on in the other forums, to many know it alls thats for sure. Take care my friend and I'm blessed to have gotten to know ya on here. I'll shoot you a PM, you can count on that one!!

Thanks for answering my questions and helping me out. I learned allot from you!! Like I told you the first few months I was on here. (Your old fashion and your one of the few good guys left in bow hunting)

Art, as I said in a PM to you, I have a great amount of respect for you. I pay great heed to what you have to say and I recognize your high intellect and knowledge for Traditional bows and much more. Your absence will be our loss.

Art, I totally understand but I hope you change your mind. You are one of, if not the best assets on this board, if not the entire site. I know it's hard to ignore some folks, but that's the best way to deal with them. Seems some are like little kids and crave attention any way they can get it--every site has them.

Hang in there--hope you are able to shoot again soon.
