Things may have been said multiple times previously.
When people are slamming others, attacking them and making negative comments, actual collaboration comes to a screeching halt!
I've always wanted whatever I do here or in any thread I post in to be collaborative and helpful to everyone.
In that spirit...
I volunteer with 2 other people and teach middle school kids about building EV's.
We pay for nearly everything ourselves and don't personally benefit in any way from those classes.
I used to be a volunteer fire fighter for 6 years.
I've sought out, most of my adult life, places or opportunities where I could help people.
Even my job in software testing is for a company that does this!
That's why I make threads like this and spend my own time and money on EV related things.
This motor, doesn't belong to me. The owner...Milan...asked me to check over his EV and help him make it better.
I volunteered to rewind his motor for him for free. All I asked is he buy the wire and other parts needed to improve it.
I've rewound it 4 times and each time I get the wind a bit better. All of my efforts for him are free!
I've made metal parts, modded many motors and controllers, built battery packs and other EV parts for quite a lot of people.
...All for the cost of the materials needed only.
I make zero money for my services and that IS how I want it to be!
That's who I am.
In that spirit...lets keep this collaborative, helpful, friendly and on topic always.
How someone acts in the real world is often quite different from their online persona, so what you do outside of the matrix is really irrelevant to interaction here on ES. In fact, that list immediately above, has a familiar ring to it in my view...a bit like the guys whose first step in a disagreement here is to rattle off their education and degrees. In my experience that's shown to be a big red flag...not that education, degrees and experience aren't great, but those who feel the need to bring it up to support their side of a disagreement generally means they don't have a substantive argument.
You can tell us to stay on topic all you want, but just like a conversation in person can drift away the same can, often does, and will happen here. With regard to you in particular expect teachable moments, because those of us who've been the repeated subjects of your
attacks (not the source
of the attacks) already see your switch about to flip, and when it does there will be quite frank off topic conversation. We're going to teach you to behave around here like you claim to do in person. I give you the benefit of the doubt and think you don't realize what you've done repeatedly, so I see change as possible.
Tip-toeing around the subject to avoid a powder keg from going off with strict adherence to "on topic only" is no solution. Warnings and thread locking clearly hasn't worked, and I believe it's because everything was deleted making it impossible to see the error in your ways after you've calmed down.
Before you reply, please understand that there's no attack whatsoever in this post, and there's no subtle attempt to stir the pot. Instead of trying to use sarcasm and wit to make my point, which would have surely set you off, I took the time to try word this with only group harmony in mind. If you take it otherwise, wait awhile and read it again before responding.
The ball is in your court with a number of people waiting to see whether SpinningMagnets' bowl of popcorn was worth preparing. I'm an optimist and give it only a 50/50 chance.
