I was tipped-off to this thread by a DFO friend on Facebook. I am posting this reply, logging out, and not returning yet AGAIN, because quite frankly, some of you have nothing better to do that trash-talk. I am not the first victim, nor will I be the last. I might add that, as a result, DFO has lost many an active member since I first signed on in 1998 when it was the DCI forum.
First of all, what I do is NOBODY's business except for the people I am involved with. But, if it makes you feel better to trash-talk, go right ahead. I am not fazed by it. Enjoy yourselves.
Secondly, I'm STILL trying to pick up the physical, psychological, virtual, and financial pieces of getting my home wiped-out over a year ago with Hurricane Sandy. One of the FEW things that survived in my workshop was a tom shell belonging to the original poster. Sorry to say this and be so callous, but someone's project tom shell takes are very far backseat to the safety and security of my family. I have conducted ZERO drum business since last year, because I have no shop to do it in, nor do I have the equipment or tools. All gone.
This situation will be rectified when priorities ahead of it have been taken care of. That's the way it is. That's the way it shall be. I would gladly swap positions with those of you who didn't endure the devastation and tribulations of having their house and personal property destroyed by floodwaters and fire, plus living for 16 days without power, transportation, and communication.
Think I'm out of line??? Too bad. Go get a life. I'm still trying to rebuild my own.
At this point, I'm out, and terminating my DFO membership. Have fun.
