All this BS that is going on lately on so many Bonsai forum, is really starting to pis me off as it is, but having to be confronted by those terrible tags over and over again when I visit this forum, is making me itch and wonder why I even wanted to try again in the first place!
And please, no body replies like: if you don't like it, leave or don't read it or reply to it, because that one is worn out by now.
To whom this may concern. Some persist in annoying the crap out people that are really interested in Bonsai and keep on hacking into many well intended and Bonsai related post's. I have been seeing this as long as I visit Bonsai forums from all over the world, and it make me wonder, how these annoying ego maniacs on many forums, ended up doing the same hobby, that I love so much? They spoil it for everybody, every time, but they don't care! They even seam to enjoy it, why else would they do it over and over again, for years on end? Relentlessly as they are, they even jump forums, to hunt down their unseen enemies. I hear them start talking about the spirit of Bonsai and the art of Bonsai, that then always ends up in a pissing contest, fought out in fancy difficult words and many quotes. Well let me tell you this, those concepts: your spirit and art of Bonsai, will only reach us trough your Bonsai! Than we will listen to you, because we see the evidence of your idea, talent and artistry. No fancy words, fact or quotes, how ever right they might be, have any meaning or value to any one, when the are posted in this manor! Seriously, WHY, do so many behave like this? What is the point? What do you get out of all this miss behavior, safely from behind your screen? Do you really like to be disliked that much? I find it unbelievable, that even in this wonderful hobby, were I and everybody else can escape from the harsh reality off to days world, I have to be confronted with this kind of hostility and animosity on a Bonsai forum! You all should know better, even the morons! All this lost energy should go in your Bonsai, I for one, would love to see them. And then, who knows, you might find the true spirit of Bonsai in your own work. And than you will know, that it was all that time right in front off your nose, in a small pot! But you mist it, because you were to busy annoying people on the web! Just stop! Think twice before you feel the urge to start again, if we all try to let the past be the past, we will have a clean forum in no time! Would that not be, in the true spirit of Bonsai?!
And please clean away those ***** tags!
And now we wait,
Hans van Meer.

For you, Hans, the world :)

I don't think they were really going to work for this site anyway. They are more for blogs.

Thanks for removing the tags, they were just another means of anonymously insulting others and added nothing to the forum.

Hans take it easy!

Hans,

I understand where you're coming from, but if you believe in free speech, you're not always going to like what's said. Relax, have a beer (or your favorite beverage), enjoy your trees and don't let those "Chuckle Heads" get you upset.

I don't think Hans is really referring to a free speech issue as much as a negative vibe that exists that really shouldn't be part of the real Bonsai world. The times I've actually spent with Bonsai folk face to face at workshops and meetings have been filled with beautiful Bonsai people filled with positive energy. This is the true spirit of Bonsai. The negative energy found on alot of websites is not true Bonsai---and I think Hans was expressing his frustration and disappointment with this.

Not just here, not just bonsai

If I can contribute my very humble opinion.....

People the world over are in a bad mood, I seriously doubt whether I need to go into why.

I see complaints about the same things from the other side of the world.

We're all feeling the pinch and sometimes the frustrations come out (or look for a way out) in the worst possible places.
