As many of you already know I recently put a thread on here introducing myself and asking you all to have a look at my site as I'm now trying to market my taxidermy more strenuously. I'm getting on a bit now and recognise that a day may come when I might have to give up being an estate stalker and earn my living in a more sedentary way.
The thread and my site so far has had over 2250, views which is very encouraging, and some of you posted lovely remarks and wished me well in all this. Thanks very much for that.
But those of you who viewed the thread will also have noticed that one or two unnecessary comments got posted and then some guys jumped to my defence on the thread and it all ended up becoming a bit of a scrap with posts that were less than pleasant bouncing back and forth.
That wasn't what I wanted nor expected, although I’d been warned that there are some members on here who delight in posting inflammatory stuff. Maybe I'm a bit naive but I just don't understand the point of any of it. And while I'm at it thanks also to all those of you who, not wanting to become embroiled in the controversy on the public forum, took the time and trouble to phone or e-mail me personally by way of support in all this.
The end result was that Admin kindly contacted me expressing the view that they thought the unpleasant posts were detracting from the original purpose of my thread and offering to delete them all for me. I agreed and they've done just that and moved the whole thing now to appear under 'Taxidermy and Trophy Preparation' and all the angst has been completely defused.
So you won't be able to follow the developing tear-up anymore, interesting as it may have been ! And you now know where to find me on here.
Please keep looking at my website and, assuming you think the work’s OK, pass the details on to anyone you know who you think may also be interested.
