    I do, and I figure that while I don't have as high a post count or the build experience like some folks here (cough @Rogue Bohemian or @Rinkirn) I think of my contributions as insightful and often providing comic relief.

    My sarcastic style often doesn't translate in print, and occasionally I've ruffled feathers while not fully meaning to.

    Pretty sure I know. :D

    I tend to be a polarizing figure: Those that like me usually like me a bunch, those that dislike me, usually dislike me a bunch. It's the danger of having a quirky personality.

    Sorry @Dadocaster, I've always considered you a moderate. Perhaps we just think the same.

    That is the only logical conclusion...

    Maybe some see me as a schmuck...and sometimes I am. I am generally supportive and positive of people testing their limits. Sometimes, I get lost in the middle of telling a story...but, forgive me...I had a blast in the seventies and too many concussions.

    I figure that's more or less how people see me, and I'm okay with that, especially the last 1.5 years that I kind of
    stopped giving a spit about anything. But things are better , and there's a saying " what other people think about me is none of my business ".

    Hmmn. I suppose you could question how any of us are viewed in the whole wide world.

    To be honest, I don't spend a lot of time wondering what other people round here think of me, mainly because I try to keep my contributions positive. The only time I post anything that isn't intended as either helpful or supportive is if I see someone post something that I feel is loud-mouthed, ill-informed, or rude to others. Even then, I explain why the post was an error of judgement – in my opinion – rather than criticizing the individual.

    So far, I regard everyone who's posted on this thread as friends (on-line, or I've actually hung out with them).

    Is that because you've grown too comfortable in the Lapp of luxury?

    I’m new here. I feel I can be objective. This is one of the most friendly, supportive and civil forums I have experienced. It’s refreshing.

    In regards to myself, I am a nice guy. I like helping people. I like learning from others. I treat people with respect and kindness with no concern of their opinion of me. It’s cool if they like me. It’s cool if they don’t like me. I learned long ago that you can’t make everyone happy and some people are going to dislike you no matter what you do. :D

    I, for one, like you...I like way you stand up for what you believe, but are open to the opinions of others.

    I dont want to be disliked, but ya cant help how people see you. I try to be helpful to people, I've learned a lot from my short time here, and in real life, and I like to pass on everything I know if it would help someone.

    I'm a very standoff-ish person in the flesh, but from guitarist to guitarist I feel like I kindred spirit. I dunno, I just feel like I'm home around musicians.
