Stirring up trouble

In the last couple of days I've been getting flack over my review of The Gathering at Macktown on The Spoon and Blade. Some of it by e-mail, some of it in the Guestbook.

Last year at Macktown the weather has been horrible, as you can see on this post. IF you don't want to read it, lets recap. The weather was rainy when we got there, it turned to storms, the wind picked up, over half the camp bugged out. Over at the Spoon and Blade, I put my review up, including my opinions. Well in the last couple of days, people have found it and started leaving comments in the guestbook, unhappy with me.

Now some of the comments are true. Frenchman's is not Rock River, I was misinformed and can not go back and change it right now. My ISP and hosting company are not getting along and until they work things out, I can't update it at all. The review on there is for Frenchman's 2005, which I did attend.

If you are a re-enactor and want to see the kind of "trouble" I'm in, go over and check it out.

Honestly, I posted my opinion and I stand by it. If they don't agree with it, that's fine. It's no skin off of my back. But I'm not about to change it or apologize for voicing it.

I feel like you should apologize to everyone you cold hearted B---h, I did not attend not because of weather but of not being invited by you. You wait til Bloody Lake I'm going to let you have it.......

I read the review and re-read it. What exactly was innaccurate about it? I don't get why people are so riled up...

These people have a serious reading comprehension problem.

And, I'm sorry, some of the folks who bugged out had health issues and equipment failures and stuff and had a good reason to leave, but others were just flat out fucking pussies. There, it's said.

I agree with Graumagus, see you next weekend as long as it ain't raining or I'm on the road.

Now it looks like they are going to ask for my removal from the ONW co. I guess that review is hitting close to home for some.

Dude, if they kick you out for that, I'd say fuck 'em.
