 Come on Guy's, Bull is a good dude, very stand up.
What's the point of being STUPID, if you don't show it ????

If you read bull's post on GJ (as clipped above) and consider that this thread has been here for some time and definitely before his posting his oh so typical passive/aggressive snide remark, I'd say 1+1 really does walk like a duck.

Hope that made it a little clearer how those who might not hold the man in very high regard might conclude that he absolutely was taking a cheap shot at GG.  th-wink

Looks to me llike he's calling this site the "GJbashbrigade.com" and that all we post is "crap"

Right there in the screencap in Reply#11

Not that I really give a shit what he thinks, but I cant stand a hypocrite

Come on Guy's, Bull is a good dude, very stand up.

 I could care less who Bull takes a shot at, he is a stand up guy in My book. So what if he popped a couple remarks towards this site,Does it really effect you,   he has been the most level headed mod over on the other site and has always been a good guy, personally, i would enjoy to have a cold beverage with the gentleman and shoot the shit in person with him. And besides, in the quote above, he is just calling it like he sees it. I'm kinda bummed that Bull walked away from here recently, and if i remember correctly, Buck told him he was more then welcome to stay.

+1,  I know some people here have a beef with him but he's top notch in my book.   thumbsup2

I told him when he became a mod over there it was going to be tough for him...b/c before he was one of the guys and now he's the sherriff.  And once you're an authority figure you can never be just one of the guys again.

Yeah it does. Don’t like shots at me, UB, this site, or most of the core members here.

 I agree 100% with what you said otherwise. IMO UB and BULL are stand up guys and I would love to sit and BS with them in their shops.
I myself am tired of the journal bashing here, and some people not letting go. some of it is downright childish as BULL put it.
Personally I don’t know how bull puts up with all the crap there.  I don’t know why UB puts up with whiney ass prima-donnas like Vance and myself.

Before the adoration of the man gets so far out of hand that he's considered for sainthood, it ought to be stated that he isn't considered a stand up guy by a number of folks here who he screwed over there.  Talking poorly of the man is verboten around these parts and for the most part, those of a like mind as I, have respected the wishes of UB and others on the staff of GG. 

Sorry UB and others but it needed to be said in the interest of telling both sides.  I will now go back to biting my tongue.  hidex

You hit a valid point there Joe.
There are over 1,500 members of GG and we all had a different chain of events leading us to be members here.  Some never were members of GJ at all and others bought the key to the executive washroom.  We all have or had a different experience as members there, and some have had a bad experience here also.

GG is just as guilty of errors against the membership as GJ.   I've made a few myself.
  My friend may be your enemy but that does not change that you are or could be a friend of mine also.  A lot of mutual respect is required by all to make a community this size work.  That takes an effort by all members inclusively.

I personally see no point to endless bashing of anything, spend that energy on bragging up the good.   Post tool and garage related content here, tell us what works good for you and why.  And most of all post a pic of it.

Leave the drama and soap opera bullshit off the forum, please.  Every member from admins to the latest newbie.  It adds nothing useful.

Just my humble opinion, take it for whatever value you find.

Brian

Three members sticking up for him is considering him for sainthood?!   scratchhead


it ought to be stated that he isn't considered a stand up guy by a number of folks here who he screwed over there. 

If your beef is so strong with him, man up and send him a message.  The guy I know will discuss whatever issue you have with him.  Or keep grumbling about it every once in awhile.  Your choice.

With the massive amount of bitching on this site directed towards that site, you guys are going to get your panties in a bunch over the tiniest bit of return fire?   C'mon...grow up, stop complaining about the other site, and move on.
