At a sports riot, I usually prefer cold beer to popcorn. We've past the G rating for this program.

OK. The name calling and the personal attacks stop right here and now. I am simply amazed how grown men can act like such children. If I were a customer and saw your childish and immature behavior I would be looking for a new piano tech. Period. Pray your customers do not see your behavior. A simple google search will zero right in on this.

Mark Davis, I have seen inexcusable things posted by you. TOTALLY inexcusable. I don't care how offended you might have been by posts directed towards you. I was about to ban you and decided to give you another chance.

People, let's use some common sense, ok? Do you really want to take a chance on your clients coming across immature, unprofessional, and just plain childish behavior? Don't let others push your buttons. Be big enough to walk away.

I expect egos like this in some of the other forums, but many of you continue to shock me. Let me share a secret with you. I am a tech working on Hammond tonewheel organs. I have discovered certain ways to make those organs sound amazing - to the point where people have sought me out. I have worked on Bruce Springsteen's organs. In fact, when he was on his wrecking ball tour in Europe, he sent his organ home to be repaired rather than have it worked on out there.

One day I saw on a forum a post by someone asking about a problem they had with his B3's sound. I answered and told him one of my secrets to get THE sound. Immediately, several people pooh-poohed my advice, telling me I didn't know what I was talking about. Was I tempted to tell them to kiss my butt? Sure. But know what? It was their loss. I know what works and what doesn't. Why should I fight with them to get them to accept FREE advice that is actually giving away one of the secrets of my success? Short answer.. Let them wallow in their ignorance. I'll keep my secrets and get paid to do what they don't understand. MY SUCCESS DOES NOT DEPEND ON MY POSTURING ON SOME FORUM AND PLAYING MINE IS BIGGER THAN YOURS.. My success rests on the results of my work.

So if someone does not agree with you, let it go. Is there some prize for proving you're right? Not even from the Nigerian lottery...

I see that Mark Davis has edited and erased his posts. In particular the one below:

Such for Mexicans!

What religion are you, by the way, Roman Catholic by any chance?


What a coward you are! You have edited that post and have erased some other posts of yours in an attempt to hide your deplorable conduct from the moderators of this forum.

Yes, as I told you I have notified about your racist and discriminating post to the moderator and I have also sent a PM to Frank and that is not all, I have mmade a screenshot of your post!

And of course I am going ro send this foto to Frank.

I will go as far as it will be necessary to reveal the kind of coward you are!

OK, Gadzar, those things said to you were not right. But when I said walk away from it I meant EVERYONE.

Ken,

If you are going to tolerate racism and discrimination in PW, arguing that we are behaving like children, let me tell you that I am not kidding.

What Mark Davis did is public racism and discrimination based on religious beliefs, period.

So I publicly ask you to ban him from this forum.

As I said I have screenshots of what he posted before he had the opportunity to edit them.

I just can not let it go as if nothing happened.

Regards.
