Well guys, I’ve been following this since the beginning. I let the WTB ad in the wrong place ride, because we really aren’t monsters here. I saw my brother @Legend had matters in hand and said nothing.
It takes a big man to apologise and we all respect that kind of behaviour around here, as Legend says, perhaps a simple apology in thread would be a good idea, nobody expects you to grovel, just man up and move on.
Hazing and flaming new guys is very common on the internet, I’ve never really understood it. We were all new once and when I first came here, although I had been buying reps and genuine watches for nearly two decades, I was very green. I have learnt so much in my time here, the depth of our members knowledge and willingness to share is mind blowing. I’m still learning and far from the most knowledgeable member. It is said that the average life of a hobby is five years. People come and go, although some of us have been around a very long time. We are a small forum and pride ourselves on being gentlemanly, and we are well aware we need new members and for them to get involved
You got off to a bit of a wobbly start, I could name some very well respected members here who had a bit of a rough start, we don’t accept bad manners, but we don’t hold grudges. This is not a criticism of you, just the nature of the internet, but consider how you would behave in person. You walked into our clubhouse and without any introduction or preamble demanded we drop what we were doing and join your conversation. I get the impression that is not the guy you really are and would never do that in real life. So pour yourself a drink, kick back, read and join in a few threads and you will quickly not only be accepted and welcome, but you will find you make very real and life long friends
