I read the first thread and thought "Hey, what a great idea! I sure hope this guy doesn't turn out to be a scammer. I'm going to follow this one in hopes that someone partners up and they hit it big. That'd be cool."

Then you kept talking.

You're on a forum devoted to homebrewing as a hobby, full of people who have both had the dream and don't, who have either careers or just jobs they kill time at. There is a diverse group here, and yet you imagine that they're all just trying to make you look bad.

This is, by the way, coming from someone else who took a hobby, invested a bit of money and a whole lot of time, and made it into a career. I work for myself and love/hate every minute of it
I sure as hell didn't start it by telling people with more experience in my industry that they're jealous or out to get me.
Seeking a business partner, proclaiming how you have such an amazing, professional model, and then speaking poorly and acting worse doesn't build confidence.

You need to grow up, and take a lesson in decorum.

raenon - Honestly none of these people know me. And the whole point of them even posting here in the first place was to get a rise out of me. They did, Ill never back down from an awkward situation.

The only reason I came onto this forum was to find someone who wanted to take their hobby to the next level. Like me. Im not looking for people who have worked in the industry, just so they can tell me how to do things.

People have hobbies because they like doing them, yes? That is the kind of person I would like to partner up with, someone who wants to enjoy their work. I dont care if I make it big (although that would be nice), I just want to have a profitable business doing something that I love to do everyday and have enough money to put food on my family...bushism...to have a home and food on my plate

The fact of the matter is, I posted here to find a business partner in Massachusetts.

I really just got confused when all these people from 2500 miles away post here saying all kinds of rude things. I have a strong personality and I burn plenty of bridges but I am not here to sell my business or products. Half of the things I have said have been out of complete entertainment for myself, and if you cant laugh at some of the things things said then I feel bad.

like I say to everyone else, read my first post - none of this should have even happened. I enjoy all the posts from massachusetts, none of them have been jerks.

I posted this in the Massachusetts forum.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, so I'm grandfathered in.

You can expect responses from everywhere on this forum, especially for posts like this.

I got invited to Masstoberfest and have met Cape in person. And I'm a Celtics fan. Does that count for something?

Shouldn't you be out rioting with the rest of the 99% right about now?
