Quite a long time ago I had someone criticize me for trying to economize on certain aspects of a model RC aircraft hobby. I was scratching to come up with enough coin to be involved at the time. Their comment caused me to leave the club I was a member of since as always I look to have good value for my $$$ struck me that his was not for the weak of pocket book & if we couldn't fork over $50 for a one time levy for improvements we should not be in the club. 'If you can't afford $50 then you shouldn't be in the hobby" was his comment. I took it as a Que to leave since i was one of the few brave enough to stand against the suggested levy so I resigned my position on the executive wishing them all the best in the future. That person who made that comment was claiming to be living under the poverty line at the time yet selling his carved water fowls (ducks) under the table for $20,000+ a pop at the time hence in all reality ripping off the cdn government & ripple affect was me paying for his welfare cheques. I'm not painting everyone with the same brush here but when I see comments about used underwear and living in Alabama it concerns me since we are supposed to be helping each other out. I'm confident that I have earned the respect of our fellow members here & I can post without getting thrown under the bus.
