    Presumably Robin/Brian/whatever his name is feels he's won some kind of final victory by deleting all of his content. In my opinion it's done the community a favour not having it as a permanent record lest future visitors presume that it has merits that just aren't there.

    Must really have choked when he found out that PM has a time expiry on edits mind

    Thank you. That means a lot.

    That's because you were doing something genuinely new and potentially useful. Also, extremely intelligent, and presented like a human being.

    Funny, I see very few maniacs on the road. Oh, wait....

    A couple months ago, Milacron himself was asking around about buying/importing taiwanese machinery. I took a screenshot of it for posterity.

    The reason I asked (not actually expecting him to answer) is that his social and writing style is exactly like someone that haunts some other unrelated forums. I thought there might be crossover. Maybe it's a personality style that's just not very common (fortunately).

    He does seem to be getting a rough time over on PM. Who would have guessed the the pros over there wouldn't like a hobbyist who shows up and lectures them right from the start on a method of cutting what he thinks are gears, but they clearly don't think are gears, not by their standards anyway. Haven't had such a good laugh for ages.

    Yeah, I was kinda surprised, don't worry about it we've all got our share like that... unfortunately.

    hey, I try not to get all caught up in the popularity "contest" that some folks seem to thinki it is.

    Its not the kardasian show.

    I look at the facts and figures and make my own seive. Meaning I fliter out the bunk. Stick around, you might need a larger seive.


    This though wont get you anyhaerwe on a learning forum, which this is. I come here to learn, not watch idiots bicher at each other..

    "Well guys if you are expecting a detailed wordy description of the method you will be waiting a while"

    That? What the F is that? It has no value... JR

    Yeah, his pompous attitude didn’t go well over there either!
    At least we are done with him spewing here.

    I’m usually very supportive of new folks on here but that ass just rubbed my fur the wrong way, and made no attempt to self correct.
    Seems he came here just to stir up a fight.

    I heard the back door slam I think? Good riddance.
