I have been part of the slingshot community for over 1500 days now. And most of the old school folks on this site and on that other site have always been great. They want to develop community, they want to develop friendships...do things in their community and for each other. I have noticed over the last year now...that the newest owners of Slingshots are turning a lot of the pages on Facebook in to drama filled high school playgrounds. It's gotten so bad that I have contemplated selling the slingshot and just walking away from it all. Walk away from the reviews that I write, walk away from the social aspect of what slingshots have done over the last 4+ years., walk away from the essentially everything slingshot related... so on and so on.
I run a few of the larger pages on Facebook (8K members or more) and it went from fun to work. I am just grateful for this community and those long timers that I have had a chance to meet here. This site reminds me that the reasons I kept the slingshot after my first year were the right reasons. People like Painter kev wokka SlingRider and many more I have met and talked to over the phone are the ones that have helped create the community that I enjoy being a part of. It's been said before and I will say it again... Thank you rabtech for this online community.
Kind of a ramble...but it's been on my mind for a few weeks. Everyone can carry on with their day.
