      I've learned that reqardless of where we're from, we all pretty much are interested in doing the best job possible. And that we are professionals who reall caare about our trade.

        Re: What have you learned?

        I've learned there are lot of hard working, good natured folks out West and all around this world. People here for the most part are friendly and generous with their professional knowledge. I've learned that there is a place on the Internet where folks can discuss a topic , disagree and not be reduced to profanity and slurs. I'm still not sure about charging lithuim batteries in nicad chargers but that's another story.

          Re: What have you learned?

          I have learned that there are so many different ways to do the same job and that everything on the forum tend to lead to a dissagreement of some sort
          I was thinking we need a top ten list of arguements on the forum but being new I dont think I can come up with the best of the top 10
          Here is a few that I can think of
          1 ABS vs PVC
          2 Copper vs Plastic
          3 Flat rate pricing vs Time and material
          4 Drum Machines vs Sectional
          5 Licensed plumbers vs Devine plumbing
          6 Team Geritol vs everyone

          I am sure there are a lot more and even better ones than these
          As I said being new I am learning quite a bit being here and I am enjoying my time on the forum alot

            Where's your list JC?
            This sounded familiar so I did a search. 1 year ago almost to the day....weird
            http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12332


            Add these to my list

            The K-60 just might be all Rick said it is..... and MORE!

            That after meeting most of the plumbing regulars in person that they are just as strange as myself

            That there's a good chance that one my posts might end up on the desktop of the CEO of Ridgid

            That as the sun begins to set on my plumbing career it also rises on many others

            There seems to be a direct correlation between the time I spend here and the amount of Ridgid tools I buy

            That I can come here to ask a stupid question and get a logical answer

              What did I learn here.....
              -everyone has a different way and it doesn't mean it's wrong
              -how little I actually know about plumbing, it's good to be around guys who have been plumbing longer than you've been alive
              -sectionals are superior drain cleaning machines
              -there are good people in America who will be your friend and never want anything in return
              -never sacrifice your integrity as a plumber or person
              -Joey is the most patient woman in America
              Buy cheap, buy twice.

                - There are a lot of honest, hard working people still out there.
                - Take criticism as an opportunity to improve, not as an insult.
                - Friends you meet on the internet are more often than not, normal people.. with a few exceptions
                - Its impossible to please everyone on the forum. I have to go with the flow and not overreact to requests and suggestions.
                - Don't ever use Sylvan as a plumber

                  The main thing I would add that is different for last time. . .

                  There are lots of big, tough guys out there EXTREMELY comfortable in their masculinity and quite a few others who aren't afraid to show their feminine side

                        I did a quick, lazy search, but didn't find anything to problematic. Is there a certain thread that he got under everyone's skin? Or was it just overall?

                          You're right...I just did the same kind of search Basically he was a I think it was overall. He was thrown off of another forum and came here. A bunch of his followers came on with him at the same time saying he was wonderful. Surprisingly they left when he was banned. He does have his own forum that he has to approve you to join-the process wasn't hard A few of us did to go on and see what he was selling there. He did not have a nice thing to say about anyone. I think he was most famous for saying he plumbed a fifty story building with 3 guys, himself and a helper. Then there was the fact that he changed his avatar a few times-one was a nude frontal shot of a guy (who knows if it was him or someone else) and the other was a girl spread eagle

                              I learned NEVER, I mean NEVER repeat code you were told of by a third party, but haven't read with your own eyes (Dog, god rest your soul)

                              I learned that dissagreement is almost always a good thing...it would seem that the greatest lessons lie in contrasting opinions & experiences.
