    Apparently you had more than twobeer! No where on this forum did I say: "Everyone at the court is using the same bird" !! The most recent post previous to mine is dated 11-2-7. Being sober, I calculate that as nine months old!! (2years = 24 months)



    Also, at what age are the posts on this forum irrelevant, outdated, worthless, useless, untrue, or unworthy of comment or further discussion?? Since I only visited this forum a few days ago following a long hiatus, for me nothing is!!! Perhaps "the guy, who posted to a 2 year old thread" found this thread interesting enough to add a post or two, as did others including the guy calling himself, or herself, Twobeer!! Perhaps the subject matter, information, or opinions have changed enough to warrant revisitation!!!

    If indeed this thread is irrelevant, outdated, worthless, useless, untrue, or unworthy of comment or further discussion, why don't you petition the administrator to delete it!??!


    PS: Unlike golf where each player uses his own ball, in Badminton all players in a game share the same bird. So, new bird or old, they all must use it and adjust their play accordingly.

    No one should gain the advantage of using a new bird part way through a game. Because, if a new bird is introduced during a game, the first player to use it may have an advantage over the last person to use the old bird!

    If everyone used their birds as long as possible, it would reduce the overall expense of Badminton for the individual, and the reduced demand might tend to lower the prices.

    I agree with you that 2 years old was not a valid statement, and you are right, even old post could be brought to life, is there is some new relevant info.

    I have never petitioned the admin for removal of ANY post.. My firm beleif is that word should be free, and no one should be censored (In the case of commercial SPAM or obvious malace, I could however consider to make an exception :-) )

    The exact quote from your post is "Everyone on the court during a game will be using exactly the same bird! Feather, nylon, fast, slow, new, old, fresh, damaged, cheap, expensive, yellow, or white!!"

    my statement
    You mean the guy, who posted to a 2 year old thread, that it is OK to play with damaged shuttles, because "Everyone at the court is using the same bird"
    was not intended to be a word for word qute of your post... It was more of an "interpretation" of it.. (and please note "Interpretation" is also not a quote from your post... )

    P.S. Could you consider changing to normal black fonts in your post..
    The red font makes you seem like an angry kid... D.S.

    What does "Messerschmidt" mean beside the name of the great fighter used by German in WWII?

    that's why you buy nylon shuttles. they last much much longer. feather play better but if your good with nylon, your even better with feather.

    aah.. maybe its only in sweden.. I think there was an old joke in a movie or something..

    Person A was frustrated on his friend (B) always having to be correct, an "picky".

    A: "Please stop being be such a Messerschmidt"...

    B: "It's called Besserwisser..."

    NO!!! As long as it is available as an option I will use it, because I like it, and I am not normal!! I am a 67 year old kid!

    I am not angry, and I never get angry!! See? Your words don't bother me, bother me, bother me, .......



    But, thank you for your concern!!

    PS: What does using the Times New Roman font indicate??

    A small amount of nettiquette, and respect for other readers of the forum is not a bad thing.. Just because you, yourself, find it pretty or whatever?, should not stop you from maybe thinking what other people think of you and your message when they read your post..

    I suggest you read http://www.n-etiquette.com/forum.htm

    and maybe even: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=48363

    Of course there are always "options" as well to use f-words, be rude, and dissrespectful to others as well...But just because the option exists does not mean it should not be wisely and restrictively.

    Respect for other forum members and readers of your posts, is something to consider regardless of being 67 or 6 to 7 years of age.

    My 2 cents,
    Twobeer

    having a big font is just wasting room in a thread.
