Thanks for putting up with me on the Scruggs Forum but Im really done with posting there. Its just getting to be a chore having everything you write twisted or for folks who have very little knowledge of how BG banjo works,try to argue with anyone who does. Ill still be lurking around and will post occasionally in a thread I stated, like the workshop thread and in the other forums. Have fun over there...

You have to have a thick skin to be on the internet. With as many members as we have, there's bound to be some differences show up. Take it with a grain of salt and ignore those who want to argue.
I hope you'll change your mind and stay on the forum. Many of us appreciate your threads and will miss them.

John, I hope you will reconsider your decision. I, and I'm sure, many other appreciate your experience and knowledge. What ever you decide, thank you for all you do for us here on BHO. Keep picking.

Tired of screaming into the wind? I know it's frustrating - take a break for a while. There are a lot of people that appreciate your posts, whether they acknowledge it or not.

John - I know you have a good comprehension of this - we see the good, the bad and the ugly on here: mostly for the very greatest part it is the good. All of the posts make us think ... which really what this group is about. Stick with us - take a break - whatever, but don't give up on us. We need your wisdom.

John, You are one of my favorite people on here, so I hope you don't leave BHO entirely. I don't know much about BG, but I always learn a lot about it from your writing.

I'll still be on the BHO just not posting on the Scruggs forum. I've taken over a year off from postin, back a few years ago but this time will be permanent I think. It's just too tedious to keep dealing with it over there. Anything I post about playing will probably be in the other playing forums, if at all. Most likely anything playing related will just be on my YouTube or Facebook page.
Ten years is long enough both for me, and those who have had to tolerate me,haha. Hopefully I've managed to help a few along the way.

John, I find you to be one of the most helpful people on the BHO, and hope you continue to post. Ignore the trolls and those who just want to tear things down and argue. The silent majority needs you!

Folks out there that want to argue on Banjo Hangout they are missing what it's all about....enjoying the banjo and the people who play, teach, and build banjos. You are a nice guy with a lot of knowledge to share.

Like the others, I hope you reconsider. I've learned a lot watching your videos and from the knowledgeable comments you post here on the HO.

Check on Youtube for stuff in the future and on my facebook page. The BHO is a great place and none of this is personal. After all, its just a website and not something Im going to worry about. merry Christmas everyone!
