There's been what, like 10 out of 30+ distributors that have had a drop so far and people are spending hours at their computers and losing sleep over a freaking knife??? It's a bit ridiculous. You got yours, and your still complaining about people complaining about the drama queens, almost every post you make. Never took you for that person, but you seem to be the ring leader of it when it comes to this knife. There are still sooooo many opportunities, panicking this early just looks foolish. Some of these distributors that have had mini drops, still have more coming. Sal is not a liar and wouldn't steer people wrong on his forum. People need to chill out and remain patient. It's a **** knife, not a cure for cancer for christ sakenerdlock wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 4:23 pmsteelcity16 wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 1:13 pmMine came from KW today. Feels a little grippier than the Cru-carta did out of the box from what I can remember, which is a good thing. I waxed my old Cru-carta one with Drumstick wax which gave it a lot more grip, but it does darken the color. I'll probably use this as-is for now and add wax later if it needs it.
The scales DO have a smell by the way. Smells like...VICTORY!
Victory indeed. You and Budda are the real MVPs in this quest, this struggle, for many of us to get this knife. Thanks for the timely updates on the other thread. Thanks for helping instead of complaining when people legitimately voiced out their frustration in their attempts to secure one.
I'm sorry if that is what you are feeling about this whole situation. Most of us are/were voicing our frustration at not hooking up despite several tries, and the last time I checked, free speech was still allowed in this forum. What surprises me is that while we were voicing out our sentiments at no one in particular, you choose to single me out, and indirectly also blast the others who did not get this knife.
Where exactly in my posts do I complain? You are the one complaining about people like us exercising our free speech. And worse, you're calling people "drama queens". Who hurt you?
You're the one complaining and calling out people over not using their knives and making them safe queens. What gives you the right to tell people what to do with their knives? If they want to put it in a safe, it's their money, their call, their decision.
You could have helped with the search, you know. I did, I posted here to archangel/Michael pointing him to St. Nicks after I got mine, even though I do not claim any credit for his success because I know some other members have helped him too. And I am genuinely happy that Michael and the others who were frustrated got their Shamans because of the help of the forum members. It would have been greatly appreciated if your gesture could have been like Budda, steelcity and the other members who were helpful enough to point out new drops even though they got theirs.
You of all people should know that during my short time here, I've always been respectful of forum members even though sometimes I disagree with their viewpoints. I've never called any member here names or called them out on their behavior unless it specifically violated the spirit of the forum rules and regulations.
Also, how about double-standards? You complain of us whining and complaining when we did not insult other forum members, yet, you defend crux who was openly arrogant and hostile to forum members in this thread : viewtopic.php?f=2&t=80548&start=160 as someone who should be pardoned for his behavior because he is only just a "major para 3 enthusiast", and even be condescending to new members who did not know who that guy was. Well, aren't we also passionate and enthusiastic about this knife that we cannot help but be disappointed everytime we waste our precious time losing out on another drop?
In fact, I've noticed that you have a combative behavior if people do not act according to what you deem proper. I noticed it right when I first joined last year during the photo contest. Then you being combative with Gernot/Wartstein for several posts that Kristi had to edit out your posts. Now this. Maybe you're the one who needs assessment of how you interact with others online?
I'm sorry Rick, I thought of you as a forum friend even if you did not seem to think of me that way. I've always tried time and again to interact with your posts even through your negative episodes here. But this time, it's too much. You accusing me of being a "ringleader" of something that is so baseless, that I cannot let pass without calling you out too for your behavior.
