Yeah, and when I get "brutally honest" I get crucified for it! I'm not an kisser, never was, never will be. And because of the way those of you who praise George for being brutally honest then crucify me for doing the exact same thing ... what the hell do YOU want? Make up your minds! You either want honesty or you don't! And that goes across the board ... for beginners and so called "talented artists" ... being brutally honest should be equal. No one learns from not being told what's wrong with a piece ... they just keep repeating the same mistakes. Yeah, I can be harsh, but so does George. But when George says something that sounds like it comes out of my mouth, it's "Oh listen to George, he knows this and that ..." Then if I say something that sounds like pearls of wisdom from George it's "Why are you always so negative!" You can't have it both ways. I agree with George here on this item. I've seen lauded as the next Akeley mount ... for crying out loud! Stop worrying about feelings being hurt, or bruised egos ... that's life. You don't always get what you want, and if you can't face it ... well, you know the option! There's so much kissing going on, the brown noses are showing. If a mount has flaws, then let the person know ... then let them know how they can improve their work for the next time. I'm not advocating "Man, that sucks!" as a form of critique because it is not ... just as I'm not advocating "Oh, that's awesome!" just so feelings don't get hurt! There is constructive criticism, and outright meanness, although sometimes some on here can't tell the difference. And Kerby .... JEEZE MAN! Take it away! My eyes! LOL! John.
