    Ganado I was on the receiving end also when I first came here. Personally I do not see anything wrong with what he said but not my call.

    Yep, that is correct... There is NO Professionalism, for the MODs here on the MONKEY Site..... None of us get paid a "Dime' for our Service, here, including ALL the Admins..... In FACT, most of us donate our Hard Earned Cash to Support this Site, It's Hardware, Software, and ISP Expenses.... and we DO that, so that the Rest of the World, can come HERE, and get an Education, on the Subjects of our Interests.... Being a Professional only means you get PAID, for your Service..... Nothing More, and Nothing Less...

    Threads can be cleaned up as needed, it ain't a big thing. And as always, if a mod feels the need to remove one of my posts, that is fine with me.

    High ranking, my butt. I'm the lowest of the lowly here. I'm not even a paying member, and it was me he jumped on. I spoke the truth as I see it, and it seemed he didn't care for it. Too bad, it ain't my job to make him happy.

    No ma'am, he speaks the literal truth. To be a "professional" means someone must be paying you to do what you do. Your form of making a living. Since the work here is "voluntary" it is NOT professional.

    I saw that as well @Motomom34 .... In my PMs with him, I did ask him to give us a chance, and get to know us, before he dumped us, forever.... so there is still Hope for a New Monkey.....

    I see nothing in this definition that says anything about getting paid. Sometimes payment can come from satisfaction.

    Sometimes folks expect to get paid to be nice..... they are also known to be politicians..... shake your hand while taking a payout behind your back.... and still smiling all the way to the bank. Money makes the world go round... it has also F'd it up.

    The internet is fun.... is it not.

    contrarian

    Someone who automatically tends to take the opposite point of view from the person to whom they're speaking, or to disagree with society at large out of a sort of knee-jerk reflex.
