There's a lotta rambling in my

My first "What do you think of this?" idea that I posted here in 2009 was similarly shot down in flames. And I had a post count much higher than 4 at the time, too. That particular idea never did see the light of day in the form that I offered it, because more experienced performers told me that it would never fly. But I'm still here, older and (a teeny bit) wiser. Let's hope that Drew doesn't take this too hard, but grows and continues to refine his own style rather than trying to be Derren.

Drew - be as good as Derren, but don't BE Derren! Smile Welcome to the madhouse.

Similarly, my initial posts here were flamed as well by members I highly respect and have been of great help since then. I was offended and angry, but did a LOT of thinking over the pages and pages of discussion on my first few threads. This section of the Café sure doesn't sugar coat anything and it's a good thing. I'd rather have someone tell me an idea was garbage than simply appease me. It's the only way to truly grow.

All the guy has to do is come back on here and introduce himself. Then just make a little fun of himself and he will win us all over.

We all have said things that we wished that we could take back. I made quite a few of them myself but just went with the flow and took it on the chin. That is what guys do.

So Drew, come back and introduce yourself and you will then see a better response. Just don't try and pretend that you really meant something else when we all know that isn't the case.

I really would like you to come back because I do want to know the reason of using a dog tag.


It was mention that we were bullying the guy. No, we were not. He ask for our opinion and we gave it. If people can't handle the truth (answers) then don't ask.... What were we to do? Maybe give him a group hug and lightly smack his bottom to make him feel welcome.

It is threads like this that give this area such a bad (and deserved) reputation.

I know I'm as guilty as everyone else, but there comes a time when we should grow up and act like adults and leave the school yard mentality and bullying behind.

Thank you for being the voice of decency on this thread. You are completely right. And it needs to be said here more often.

I'm sorry Drew - come on back.

Thanks to Tony for being the adult in the room.

I'm afraid the jury is still out for me. drewslees94's first two posts were links to an ebay auction selling a copy of Staniforth's Lottery Prediction. These were eventually removed by the mods. He sprinkled in a couple of other posts to look slightly less like someone trying to make a hefty buck from Café members (starting bid $200). I note that he joined other magic forums at the same time to do the same thing.

So far he hasn't convinced me that he is interested in contributing anything positive to the Café, but I will be delighted to be proved wrong.

As for the bullying remark...

Older men than he, making withering comments, even after the initial knock down...not needed, and was indeed heading towards bullying (online)...

Its not life or death by any means, however, lets not do ourselves an injustice...

Thank you for researching the actual facts of the matter. THAT is what the voice of reason sounds like, gang!

But if someone does turn out to be a troll or troublemaker or whatever - a spade should be called a spade. That isn't bullying.

Time will tell.

Indeed Iain. We were all young and daft once. I hope drewslee was not just here to try and make money from us and that he partakes fully in Café life.

Even if he was, he just used the wrong section... He's not exposed or blabbed...let's just leave it be for now!
