Thank you for this site!
« on: August 04, 2020, 04:07:17 pm »
I have been spending some time at the Facebook Selfbow page, offering advise, sending out a few free gizmos and such.

A guy posted a bow he had for sale that was badly hinged in the fades and dead straight to the tips. I commented on the site that he he wasn't much of a bowyer, someone had pasted his bow sale from another site, they were as shocked as I was, it wasn't on Facebook. I said would send a gizmo to him if anyone knew him. The bad thing was he had 28 sales listed on his order page, I don't condone this type of behavior, selling a bow like that to someone who doesn't know a bow from a football bat and for $300 no less.

Anyway, this jerk lit into me (not the bowyer) with most profanity laced vulgar nonsense about how I didn't know anything, I gave him my bow making credentials which seemed to make him even madder. Before long a bunch of similar minded stooges jumped into the fray and lit into me.

I asked the admins to take me off the page so I wouldn't get notices of any future posts from these classless halfwits.

I am so glad the PA site exists, honorable men and some of the best bowyers on the planet who respond with consideration for others, thank you guys!

For the most part this site is filled with honorable folks. There is one guy that posts constantly that really screwed me on a deal, like new feather grinder for knapping rock. I hope one day he get some conscience and makes the trade right but I doubt it.  He is the reason I won't get in on any type of stone point trades and Christmas swaps. And I did report him.

I'm too dumb for a smart phone and way too ugly for facebook...
This place, and one other, suits me just fine.  ;)

I saw that post. It was a rough looking bow. All his bows are. Heck, just last month I was selling my bows for 300. I dont know how he has sold so many, id like to know his marketing strategy. 
Tread softly and carry a bent stick.

Dont seek your happiness through the approval of others
