are. That's kind of how our national polls are conducted.
And that's really all I'm saying. As a business owner, I know first hand that dissatisfied customers always talk the loudest. 100 satisfied customers are worth 1 dissatisfied one. And I'm suggesting that much of this thread could be an example of that principle.
The hostility part was just because the first part of that post could of been regarded in a more snarky tone.*
I'm not dissatisfied with my pipe, and even if I was, I'm not that guy, I don't have a loud personality. This was mostly to convey my frustration with handmade quality being associated with poor quality, and I blame that on KM, as it seems to be the biggest quality.
Also, I think I over-use commas.
