Just got a personal message from Don Borchelt that I'm hijacking John Batchelor's advertising and should not be posting as I have, along with hundreds over the years... Don feels that I am jumping on John's thread and plea for students. This has been a practice for over 20 years on BHO so I'm not quite in agreement with that imperious request from Don....

People have always tried to contribute whatever they can...So I think it's time for me to go...Been tons of fun over the years--adios BHO...Jack

Hey, who is that on the hangout (what is their account?). Totally unfair, in my opinion.

Don't leave just yet. Want to find out what is going on here.

That's why I sent you a private email, Jack, so as not to embarass you. But you were hijacking John Mark Batchelder's thread.

Huh?
People have been advertising their wares for years on BHO and have never asked everyone to hold off on posting a tab etc. Don so where do you get off telling me or anyone proper behavior when posting a thread of any kind?

John Batchelor will get tons of personal emails for what he can offer them and that is how it has always been. BHO People who post personal threads are not here to promote only their wares but to contribute also what they can. John is well known on BHO and will do just fine--he does very excellent work. You needn't be his savior...

Have you always been this egotistical Don? I had no idea. Who are you to dictate proper behavior of any kind on BHO--that is what Mods decide. Try not to worry that I'll be mortally wounded HA!....Get out of your house and visit the real world Don...J   p.s. But I did come back as BHO is more important to me than any silly pious note you can send me...

I'll repeat, I sent a private email. This is what it said.

"Jack, you're hijacking Batchelder's Sonny thread. The guy’s just trying to drum up some interest in his services, it’s not a good look to jump in on it."

Tbat's all I wrote..  I had no intention of saying anything on the BHO about it, it was a private message. You chose to make a public issue out of it, not me.

Am I mistaken, or isn't the Classifieds the designated place to advertise things for sale, including instructional material, and the Swap Shop section the allowed place to discuss what you advertise in the Classifieds?

Jack, your input to this forum would be missed. I hope you’ll pick up those petticoats and flounce back on in the door sir. ;)

Copied from Urban Dictionary entry:

Flounce
(fla?ns)

v. flounce, flounced, flounc•ing,

- To leave an internet group or thread with exaggerated drama;
Comes from the original use of gathering up skirts and petticoats and leaving in dramatic, impatient and exaggerated movements.

As long as posters avoid personal attacks, I see no mod issues here. Please keep it that way. Hijacking threads is at least in poor taste.

Wow,, hiJACKing,, swapping,, petticoats,, flouncing. This place gets better all the time.
Jack, bless your heart, man, but I notice you get feeling threatened when others do tabs or instructional material. You derided me a few years ago soon after I started submitting tabs,, same with Mooooo (Mike). You’ve given a lot to this august forum, but if you’re back’s up, so be it.
(maybe it’s the cheap booze you’re drinking,, try some 30 year-old Scotch….)

That constituted hijacking?

Perhaps slight drift from OP intent... but seems mostly like respectful continuance of discussion; informative and relevant.

Wonder how many posts stay with such rigid rules of EXACTLY what an OP started?

I'll never understand why people have to tell you they're leaving the BH, if I ever leave I'll just go.

Hi Jack, Nobody here is criticizing your contribution to the BHO, heck I have benefited a lot from your TABs over the years and I am grateful for it. But it's not so long ago that you called me a TROLL for offering some advice to a student who was struggling by posting a link to Bill Nesbitt's video when he was trying to figure out a certain lick and you were quick to criticize Bill Nesbitt's video implying he wasn't playing it like Earl in your opinion.   I agree with Don.  You do have a tendency to push yourself into other peoples posts/conversations  and try to take over.  Don contacted you privately out of respect but as always you have to make it out that your the injured party and seek solace from others. Grow up man, your NOT the only teacher here and who's to say your opinion is any better than anyone else who contributes to the BHO. No one really cares if your pride has been hurt. If your gonna leave, LEAVE. Give us all some peace from your constant whining and allow someone else the chance to find some work and allow banjo students to have a choice when it comes to selecting a teacher.

Okay, folks, let's let this go. As Bill said, there's no rules broken so please, back off and leave the man alone. He's done nothing wrong.
