I can no longer participate in this forum due to the heavy handed pratices of the<br>administrator.<p>When someones asks an on topic message and<br>when a person answers that question with a<br>simple URL that is not considered advertising.<p>What you have done &quot;administrator&quot; (who ever your are) is deprive someone who uses this<br>forum for needed information.<p>I can not longer be part of this dog and pony show.

Lawrence you must be softening up giving your enemies on here the satisfaction of you leaving. I bet Retro has uncorked the shampane. Say it aint so Larry. lol

I have a novel idea for you Stone, why don't you start your own forum and see how many people want any part of your BS. Like a bad penny you will return soon.

Adam,<p>I knew that and that is why I posted what I posted. Your right he has been the boil on the ass of ALL lawn care sites including his own.

mister stone--I sometimes think of what our lives would be like as next door neighbors.<p>half the time we'd be passing beers across the fence to each other. the other half of the time we'd be calling the sheriff on each other.<p>I feel certain that you'll surface sooner or later. adios--'till then.<p>GEO

<p>Mow Ed, Not trying to be a smart ass here, but nice try .... I think Stone meant it when he said he won't be posting anymore. He's getting more visitor's at his site than he can handle. Problem with Stone's forum is you'll get bombarded with ads for Viagra and who knows what..

turfquip dot com-What are you talking about?There has been one post now in the last 3 days on his forum!I don't get it?Are you joking about how many people are on his fourm or exaggerating?<p>----------<br>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care

Adam,<p>I guess you took that hook line and sinker. That's what they want...for everyone to go look. Maybe Ed from Turf Quip and Stone and Nillson will stay there on Stone's site. Afraid that's like herpes...You can't get rid of it!

Looked there today...trash and hard to navigate since you have to wait for each reply to load. Not to mention after you wait, most have been deleted. Is Stone practicing what she preached against here (censorship)?. This site &quot;rocks&quot;!

Say it ain't so!<br>I'll miss your one-off replies & deep thoughts about this industry. It was nice to have a diff. perspective on things; you have to take the good with the bad sometimes.<br>Good luck, & hope to see you at Louisville.<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

Adam and FineCut:<p>Yeah, that was tongue-in-cheek. That forum gets maybe 10 or 15 hits a day. Nothing like LS...clearly the heavy weight champion. I don't waste time over there. And I don't care what Nilsson does...personally I don't care much for the L&L boards either. So don't lump us together...the only commonality we share is turfquip hosting his site in exchange for his weekly article. I'm sure either of us would survive quite nicely without the other.<p>It's to my advantage to direct people to this site since Chuck and I have mended fences and will be exchanging banners soon. I've been doing that (promoting LawnSite) for what seems like well over a year, at times using unconventional means (controversy, etc.) Although some might argue, it would be hard to say I haven't contributed to the diversity, wide and growing membership we all enjoy here now.<p>As to Herpes, I think they advertise Valtrex over at Stone's too...go see if you want. 2 pills a day for 5 days.<p><p><p><font size="1">Edited by: turfquip dot com

Ed,<p>Valtrex may cure the symptoms, it's the underlying disease (trouble at LawnSite) that needs to be cured! If you aren't part of the cure... your part of the problem! Evidently your mending fences with Chuck make you part of the cure...and we thank you for that.
