A little kindness goes a long way -

Hi Everyone, the Forums are a great place to get out ideas, frustrations, thoughts and just share. Today I saw a BRIEF Post from a person with some kind of golf cart accessory.  I was busy, so I did not delve into the whole thing but I saw a few of the replies and thought WAIT  HOLD ON, Is this the EN Group I have come to know and trust a bit?

Honestly I was disappointed - folks, All of us have been where this person has been. Yes, maybe he is a big dreamer - maybe grandiose, even, but really was it necessary for the FIRST reply to be one to go after him and his idea by knocking him down?

I see the post is gone so maybe it was taken off by the moderator but what about a bit of kindness here? Maybe just maybe this is a person with a good thing that does not know how to communicate well - (hmmm.. are we all perfect?.) and yes maybe his claims were a bit out there - BILLIONS?  Of course very few people would take that seriously but honestly, maybe instead of making the FIRST Answer painful - perhaps we could have helped him and isn't this forum what this is about?  Perhaps an answer like - are you open to constructive comments or criticism  versus HAHA you must be ????  That really concerned me and disappointed me and makes me less likely to share if I know the first thing this community will do is knock me down if I get 'too out there'.....

Yes, we all need a dose of reality - this is NOT what I am saying But It can be delivered in a little kinder manner. Please think about that.  From my view this guy has done a lot of HARD WORK, he actually seems to have a product he has made, patented and is selling - whew - how many of us can say that?  
So please think a bit and consider the high ground - kindness never hurts even if delivered with a dose of reality.

Best to all. CD

Love your post and agree 100%

If I like something I say so and may also offer suggestions.

Billions? In the right place at the right time...who knows.

Fishing is big business.
