    but what happened to this poster .Then they wonder why the people don't like forums .I have run into several people on you tube that say they don't like forums because people are rude about them being newbies .Sad we all start some where .I don't know all the technical stuff involved with forums ,I only know it scares some people when you get too technical .I try to keep it simple .You don't need thousands of dollars just time and patience and a lot of common sense and love for it .

    I've tried a few of the other forums and have found this one to attract the kindest, most helpful posters. Every now and again we have a few scuffles, but it all seems to work out. I love this place!

    Hi 2vettes. Better late than never... WELCOME!!!!! The first thing I tell people about GPF is how nice everyone is. We have had a few "know it alls" not to mention any names over the years that would actually attack people for how stupid they are, but fortunately they are not active. Hint ......WB!
