I still dont really get why Abalama (edit: oops i meant awesomewash) is getting quite such a hard time from everyone. Honestly, I think IB set the snowball rolling the wrong direction with a little too much speed.
Love ya man, and that was a great write up of the forum, but i have to speak up for awesomewash and say that he literally took your advice on the 5.5, among several other things that people have suggested.
The 20 million thing was him giving background about who was giving him business advice, to explain why he didnt have a business plan per se (even though what he is doing kind of is), when you asked him about it. I didnt take that as bragging or trolling any more than you saying you get advice from 7 figure guys.
I mean, for petes sake, the 20 million comment was in response to him asking you if an engine similar to what you recommended was a good one for him to buy. He literally was asking you for advice on buying a washer like you had suggested, and you responded by telling him to consult his business plan.
Now there may be something about his posts that comes across… i dont know… off putting maybe?, but if you guys go back and read his posts, I think you will see that overall he isn’t really bucking anyone. Annoying? Spammy? I suppose you could make those arguments if you wanted to. Trolling, arguing, or being a goon? Not to me. If someone wants to list all the advice he has outright refused, im all ears.
Huge props to him for not losing his temper, and/or disappearing while taking all this incoming fire. Unfortunately i think we ran off @xlr8tion and @Steve. I liked both of those guys, they should come back.
@Innocentbystander as well. He owes me $50.
