Rec.kites Kite Fliers At Kite Festivals

Post by Maddys T » Mon, 10 Aug 1998 04:00:00


 This bunch of kite fliers will be easy to spot. They will be the kite fliers
standing around pissing and moaning about this news group, when they probably
should be flying kites for themselves, their families and for the kids of all
ages who have never been exposed to kites before.
 That's what my wife and I do. We enjoy the general public. Most ****,
know it all* kite fliers bore me to tears. I just smile and walk away. I have
no time for gossip and B.S

To this point I have kept my mouth shut and tried very hard to ignore
these posts.  Hoping aaginst hope that if we ignored them they would go
away.  Obviously that is not the case.  Now I'm afraid you have gone to
far and I must respond. You see I take offense to your statements

You have painted all rec.kiters with a very broad brush in your
statements above.  You don't know me or my wife, you have no idea what
it is that we or anyone else brings to kiting and yet you say you will
be able recognize us at a kite festival by our actions.  If the
description above is what you expect then I'm afraid you will never spot
us.

You see my wife and I like nothing better than to head to the beach set
up the cabanna and the banners, throw a few kites up and "meet the
public".  I cannot begin to count the number of people we have
introduced to kiting in the past 4-5 years just from having them walk up
and start asking questions about the kites and such.  Every year we go
to the beach on the 4th of July and build kites with kids because we
think every kid should have a kite on the 4th of July. Just beacause we
like kids and enjoy introducing people to this wonderful hobby that we
have become a part of.  I could go on but what's the point?

So Roger, if you are looking for us among the people standing around
moaning about this newsgroup then you will look long and hard but you
won't find us.  We'll be over there with the kites up and the banners
waving in the breeze talking to the folks.  We really don't have time
for this.

Rod

P.S.  I have seen you with your kites and it is an amazing thing to see.
Gentle winds.

You wont find the Anti Roger fan club sitting around talking about rec kites, these
guys forget there is a rec kites when they have a little wind and a kite. They ARE
the ones out there with their family flying kites and having a good time.

They are good people and fun to be around. They are no more pissers and whiners off
the net than Roger is an annoying piece of work off the net. All the same under one
big blue sky - without a PC screen to hide behind.

Sorry - I'm a jerk not matter what I'm doing hahaha

Roger you need to dispense with the wide paint roller and consider that not
everyone on this newsgroup is a pissor or moana.  Far from it. Funny thing is
that I have never heard this newsgroup mentioned on the field in the places or
people that I have flown with or watched except in a good manner the few times a
subject came up. Seems that it has always been a hint that someone learned from
the group

You message and tone of the message would lead one to think that you are talking
about yourself in your missive.  I am glad you cleared it up in the second
paragraph for someday I may just meet up with you and might want to fly with you
and your wife. I do enjoy most of your posts especially the subject lines.

Hope the wind at your back isn't yours.

Let me tell you something Roger.  You may have some sever pschological
problems, i don't know, but when you tell me what a group of rec.kiters are
going to be like it really piss's me off.  You see, i have been privledged to
meet many of the people that used to post here, and this quite a few years
before i ever heard of you and way before you came here and mucked up the
neighborhood.  A more talented and eclectic group i've never met.  Anne Rock
even baked us brownies, ever heard of her?  Nah, i guess not.  Now i hear that
you may not be going to Long Beach.  Why is that?  You really should go.  Maybe
you could learn something about community.  It's okay really, i'm not mad, i'm
over it.  Leave, no way.  Think brother, think before you post.  Read a
netiquette guide, something, 'cause you done gone and pissed a whole bunch of
people off.   I for one don't read your posts, i only ever see them if someone
reply's and usually i don't bother then, but you've once again gone to far.  I
don't know who the f*ck you think you are, but don't you dare presume to know
me and any of my friends.  While i don't speak for anyone but myself, i can
assure you i'm not gonna***and moan about you when the wind is blowing.
Don't flatter yourself.  The only reason we would ever say anything about you
at all is to wonder how and why you could have alienated yourself so much.  You
may not be a bad guy at heart, but you've missed the boat in my opinion.  Take
a break, lurk for awhile.  In a year or so come back with something to say,
perhaps some of your self respect will come back, though i doubt it at this
point.  In short do whatever, but don't tell me about the real people who make
up this group.  Our worse was better than you by a damn sight.

peace
