Attracting flies (DZ business do's and don't's)

I may be wrong but the old addage "You attract more flies with honey than you do
with vinegar" still holds true, especially in business and personal relatiions.
It seems that Mr. Kenneth Stone, proprietor of the yet opened Adventure
Skydiving, was on Rome, Georgia's local TV news.  Mr. Stone is wanting to open
his DZ at the Richard B. Russell Airport where Air Ventures Skydiving already
resides and operates.  Mr. Stone stated in his interview that the Airport
Commision needs to be "eliminated" and that they were in [it] just for the
money.  At an Airport Commisioner's meeting, Mr. Stone revealed his true
feelings on the matter when he expressed "I don't know why I am doing this.
Skydivers are nothing but a bunch of whiners and crybabies anyway".
I'm not a business major but it seems that if you are wanting to open a
business, you don't insult the individuals that have the power to either grant
or deny you the priveledge to open a DZ on their airport.  Nor do you insult
your, up until now, customers.  By doing so equates to business suicide.  
Mr. Stone, it appears to me that the Owner, Staff, Skydivers, Families and
Friends of Air Ventures Skydiving want only to skydive and enjoy their DZ in
peace.  Is it your intention to not only burn bridges, insult the authorities
and the customers you would want to attract but to also be of the opinion "If I
can't have my DZ in Rome(where a thriving DZ already exitsts) no one else can
either."?  I would hazard a guess here that, in light of your spreading rumors
on this newsgroup that Air Ventures Skydiving has lost their lease (when they
didn't have one to begin with) , insulting via mass media the powers that would
have granted you a lease and insulting the very customers you hoped to attract
in a public forum,  your popularity with the Airport Commision and the skydiving
commuity is severely lacking.  
Mr. Stone, Kenneth, I am sure there are other Airports in Georgia where you
could open a DZ.  I am also sure, that in time, skydivers would forgive you the
insults and eventually give you some of their hard earned dollars to make a
skydive at your fine establishment.  I ask you, please, leave the good people
and skydivers of Rome alone.  They wish only to skydive in peace and to welcome
anyone who would like to join them.  They are no threat to you.

Net-Bandit,
You're right, we do wanna jump in peace but this aint gonna help matters!  This is
something for the
"powers" as you put it to decide.  We at Air Ventures will keep jumping there until
we're told we can't.  We all just wanna get along.  I guess what I'm saying is let
sleeping dogs lie.  If you skydive or would like to, you're welcome to join us but
please, let this go.  This is not the place to air dirty laundry, 'specially ours.

Blue skies,

Heh, heh will the Georgia Crackers never settle down, whoaaaaa
it puts a new zig on the word anal, no seatbelts, no cool seems
to me its toooooo much cullage engineering from Grorgia Tech
and not enuff Liberal Arts. Tooooooooo much shine and nut
enuff pot to take the mean edge off. The Bible sez a lot of things
but "Know the truth and it shall set you free." comes to mind. Perhaps David
wuz thinking of future Georgia Skydivers when
he wrote all that my enemy are all around me and try to consume
my soul lakk a pak of ravering hyenas stuff in Psalms. Yawl damn
sure need an exorsism performed on yer Georgia hemoroids or
perhaps juz laser surjary. ;-P Snuffy sez yer a state full of of back
stabbing Wussies and oh yeah whinning crybabys  ;-P USS

Seems ta me ifin he used proper skydiving english he wooda sed
SKYGODS instead of whiners and crybabies. ;-)  yup, yup Texas
had a big share of the Skygod population, you know the people
that git a few numbers lower through from being dullards or develope small
skill level and having never done real shit before it goes to their head and
they start trying to git discounted tickets cuz they form these shitty little
4, 8 & 20 way teams that suck the air right out of a fun jump DZ and they also
play DZ's against each other till one or more DZ's fold. Well we thought most
of them went to Florida but it seems they went to Georgia cuz the inbreeding
wuz gitting to tooooooo bad. Maybe the USPA shud move the HQ to Georgia and
form a hemoroid care section to cool the pain down who knows but this I  do
know I feel a bunch of Snuffem jokes coming down the line dedicated to Georgia
Skydiving. ();-P Snuffy

There wuz 2 DZ's trying to operate off one airport and major
friction developed, so a Georgia skydiver named Net-Bandit
tried to keep the peace. His Momma owned a *** bar where
hiz sisters were feature dancers so he invited the competing
DZO's and a Airprt BOD to the ***bar to settle things. The DZO
who wuz allready operating at the Airport took a 100 dollar bill,
***ed it and stuck it to the cheek of Net-Bandits sisters ass, not
to be outdone the competing DZO pulled out a grand, kissed it
and stuck it to sisters ass. The Airport Commissioner being smarter
then both pulled his ATM card from his wallet, swiped it through the crack of
her ass and took the 1100 dollars. ;-P Luv ya Georgia
