    thats the funny thing... mostly the only way people would get my web address is from a marketing piece or websites like this one...

    it could have been one of my turd-like buddies though too :laugh:

    You know, if this happened to me I'd have to contact my web-administrator to find out if he can track down the suspect through the IP address. I think I'd then pay the perp a visit....Can anyone say triangle choke?

    hmm... i dunno.. an arm bar would be my weapon of choice...that way they feel all the pain while conscious - more fun that way.

    i actually thought of trackin it down, but i'm sure my web guy has better things to do....

    Chris, I think you're inviting trouble... I bet at least half of them would come from people here on Lawnsite just wanting to mess w/ your head... :wall

    Don't tempt us... I mean them.. ;) yeah that's right... THEM...


    Seriously though, I've gotten posts from one or two clowns through my website who say they want to kick my a$$... waste of their time.. all I have to do is hit delete and they're gone.

    Well thanks for putting the idea into their head Gregg! I don't care though, just means more website hits which will increase my position on the web. And as you said, the delete button works well. But I actually like getting web hits!

    even better, if the knuckleheads visit our sites by clicking on this larger, more relevant site, Google's search algorithm bumps us up higher still - more than just based on generic "hits"

    I normally know who its from. Normally its from the lighting company or the landscape guy that gave me a funny look that day on the road or at the job site. Alot of the landscape lighting companies are jealous of what I have grown my company to in such a short period of time. Plus they look at me being somewhat young and think I do not deserve the work I get. But I have fixed most of their work so they have no right to really say anything. I hit delete and go on with my day.
