Having a Troll is a sure sign we have made the big time. But….If you have been reading Woody Boater for the past couple weeks, OK, months, you will see some negative comments in various stories. They come from a “Tim”, “Dave” and other names. But, and here is the fun part. It’s all the same person! That’s right. We have our ways. And as I have always promised, we won’t let that info out, but we do know who it is, and he also goes by another name when making positive comments. We have done stories about him, his boat, and thought he was a friend. Literally a two faced reader. OK, maybe a 5 face reader.
Right now he is reading this and thinking. WTF? Yup! Known it since your first comment. I don’t respond in a small way Dim. Your comments actually make it more fun for me personally, since it inspires more stories about the folks he dislikes.
So, why? Why is “Dim” as Troy has named him. Buy fusing Tim and David and a Woody boater star is born. Why is Dim so negative? Well, see “Dim” is buddies with a small group of boat restorers. They are a spin off of a bigger restorer/broker and actually great guys. I am not sure if they even know who “Dim” is, but I am sure they know him.
And so, when I met those guys in Florida and talked to them about helping them, I was looking forward to that, whatever we can do to support folks out there. They are not sponsors, but we do support good folks regardless if it helps get a business going. For example, Kocian Instruments is not a sponsor, yet they are going all in on trying to make Gauges available in a good business way, on time and on budget. So, we use them, and want to help.
And this is how damaging “Dim” is to his pals. Ya see, I don’t want anything to do with turds like Dim. So we backed off, and no names will be promoted or shared. If they do know, then that’s the way they do business. And if they don’t which I suspect is the case, then I am sorry you have a pal like that, he has made it impossible to help you.
