Posted:well after talking to loads of people i was told spitalfields is the place to go and spin meet new people learn afew new moves. maybe its just me or is it aload of shite. i went one week and found it to be a bunch of students/hippies who think they must be cool. maybe its because i dont fit into any of these catergorys. i also found that none of these spinners were that great, not that i am such an expert. maybe its just me??? what do you think?

Posted:Coleman, Actually I was just sad because I saw my friends being offended by someone's post.

I would hope that if people called my poi scene a 'load of shite', my friends would support me. Kat, There's a difference between posting a real critique and just something to get others bothered. And thanks for goddaming me. I haven't been goddamned all day.

I was surprised to see so much effort and hurt feelings by this post and that is the only reason why I posted.

And my friends know my real name and address. Thanks.


Well, shall we go?

Posted:hey man, you don't have to tell us all where you live - i'm just a hippy that wants to send you free stuff in the mail.

you started it by calling me a jerk anyway.

seriously though, i just read this thread back and it made me smile
there's a bunch of our friends here saying how much they love and respect the people they spin with.

i like this thread and as far as i'm concerned people can go on 'pandering to the troll' for as long as they like.

Posted:Cole, what is the deal with you and black and white faced cute furry mammals?

First the debauched racoon porn parties, now you're giving pandas to Trolls for god knows what dark purpose.

Sort it, or i'm gonna call the RSPCA, PETA and Terry Nutkins off of the Really Wild Show. He'll kick your ass.

hehehe


some northerners might disagree.... esp. as we're stealing nix? too..... josh and kat here in 1 day.... and i heard some rumoure that a blondie was on his way too...


even more disagreements when you consider:

drew has only been spinning since saturday
cole needs long range learning
smallboy complains at me every time i spin
and the rest....? well i think they're shite too.... (edit: except of course the most beautiful bambam )


to all londoners for being ace
to most for never visiting the best uk fire scene....(60 firespinners out on monday night....damn good ones too, i appear to have lost myself in tepooka and not discoverd the hordes of new spinners in edinburgh.....****in hell some of them are good...)oooh and ta to ajtag and chequito for a swift but beautiful burn or two

love

Posted:interestingly I went to Spitz workshop for the first time a couple of days after I read this post. i found the jugglers/twirlers there very friendly and welcoming, once I approached them and started chatting. Maybe this says more about your attitude than theirs dannypoi.

so you can all go lynch him in his intro thread now??

get over it people!
you're all lovely!
the majority of HoPpers and non HoPpers agree!
just because someone has a nonfluffy opinion of you, doesnt mean you all need to go overboard n flood the lad with "but wait! we're lovely" posts! the important ppl KNOW you are lovely.

this happens far too much on these boards.

Posted:Well I never got to spitz, london was a big dirty smelly city filled with people who appoligized way to much. I lasted about an hour. I met one person (in england) who swung chains, she told me that I couldn't have a go on her chains cause it was dangourus. In my opinion england and especially london is not a nice place. But I was only there a couple of weeks and even though first impresions are lasting ones. Well I never got to spitz.

I really, really, really have to disagree. London may be big and smelly, but if you put some positive energy into it, it gives you more than any other place in the world. London is truly wicked!

Posted:Porpoise being that no-one up til that point had bothered to look him up Flynt.


His initial post reads like a stroppy teenager, sulking cos no one spoke to him when he went out one time.

Turns out he's stroppy 27 year old Australian (sulking cos no one spoke to him etc)

Just thought it was interesting.


Personally I'd give his opinions more notice as he's older. Not saying that it makes his opinion any more valid. Just the way I think. Although it has less weight as he's only been spinning for a few months.....oh it's all so tricky.

Ah s*d it. I don't actually care. As far as i can work out spitz is just a club full of london spinners and doesn't sound all that interesting.

As far as trolling goes this thread rates right up there with the shadow poi and Superman attacking muslims threads of yesteryear.
