  1. Brutal honesty here… I need to either post less frequently or take more time with my posts when I do post.

    I like to post, but sometimes I do it poorly. I want to say something, but in trying to squeeze a response in between doing ten other things, it's short. Short posts come across poorly; far more poorly than I hear them in my head when I write them.

    I absolutely suck - always have - at getting my "tone" right online. I constantly come across poorly. Yeah, I can be a dick, but I'm a way bigger dick the way people read my posts than the way I write them, particularly when I'm writing in a hurry. Short posts come across so much more poorly (that's not the only problem, just one of the issues), more aggressively, than intended. This forum has never really had the conversational tone of short replies with some back-and-forth. Partly because I'm as likely as anyone (or more so) to post a long post.

    I don't know what can change about that, but… I'm aware of it. I get it, and get that I'll probably never even be "good" at it, but can be "better." And that I'm committed to working on that this winter in particular.

    If I post something that seems less than "good," PM me about it. Be specific. I might not agree, and I might explain what I'm thinking (which doesn't mean I disagree), but I'll look at what you have to say with an open mind.

      With everything you have on your plate, I applaud you for the many great posts and the great site you run.

      While I see many posts by many members which sometimes lack descriptive explanations, they often are addressing a specific topic or exchange with other members.

      From a very brief time I had the wonderful experience of the Newport Cup, I got the impression you are a perfectionist and also you and Mike did so many wonderful things to make that experience the best it could be for everyone.

      Cheers to all the great things you do for so many    :beer:

      Never a bad post in my mind, just a short period of time you share with so many.

      I feel the same way about myself. I tend to come across with a bad tone or I get in too big of a hurry and my posts come across as though I didn't put much thought into them which, in turn, makes me sound like I'm new to all of this information. So I decided a while back to just read instead of posting that much. I occasionally post now, but it's not on a consistent basis like it used to be.

      I disagree, @TN94z. Your posts didn't come across that way at all.

      Mine, well, mine sucked. I'm making some changes, here and in "meatspace," for the better.
