Hi Tinker,

Although I don't agree with the premiss of your post....  

The way you presented it, and most importantly the way you have responded to criticism has been very civil.

I tip my "Stetson" to you partner,

I agree with you Jim. It is too bad that we cannot just stay on the subject without someone  assassinating your character.

I don't know...  B.M.?  PP?  I wonder about the direction this thread has taken.

I just don't know what to do-do.  OOPS!  Sorry if I stuttered.

Hey Friend, this has been good practice for me.  My other sideline for many years has been an involvement in youth sports.  Currently, i am on the local P&R Commission, (30+yrs directly involved with youth sports, 20+ yrs as commissioner) and as such, i have been deeply involved in some very controversial issues over the years.  i guess it just becomes second nature ::) 
Note:Most of the time, i think I'm referred to as Tinker without the prefix ( see previous post)
Tinker ::)

I hear that the parents are the difficult ones, not the kids!

Regarding this whole discussion on dealers, I'd like to echo and support Dan Clark's comments.  The way we see it, the Dealer Zone is a place where Dealers have almost no limits on what they can post.  That way, dealers have an outlet for promoting themselves here in the forum, but it is kept in a proper place.

I really like having dealers in this forum, and want them to be completely involved in the discussions.  They all know this, as I have written to each of them personally.

When you have 2500 kids playing in the various programs, you have to figure 5000 parents, each one of whom has THE MOST talented kid in the world playing the most important sport in the universe, and we have to make things work for all at once.  And then there are 20000 others who would rather die than to see taxes go up because of a new plot of grass for those kids to play on.  Well, you get the picture.  You guys, in spite of whatever ire I managed to stir up, are a great and VERY tame bunch. 

Matt, i think your solution is a great one.  I agree 100%. I do hope they do all bring their knowledge here for the rest of the forum talk as well. Putttn, i did not have to break out any ropes, i use them to climb trees, not swing from them, so we will have no disputes about usage there either.  We should all have the new Festool catalogues in a few days and that will keep everybody occupied in deep study, the banks happy that we will all need to remortgage our souls to get all the toys we want, and all of our LOL's will be full of glee as our purchses at our toy stores will give them the green lite for even greater adventure of their own.  Smiles all around. ;D ;D ;D ::)
