Dear Bill and Jose Luis,
I appreciatie the opportunity to discuss Amel Owner Group communication policy together with Jose Luis.
In my 10 years as an owner and member of this group I have never insulted, nor reacted negatively towards Bill.
I have checked all my postings on the slightest possibility of this. I have found only positive reactions. So I would like to ask Bill to provide the examples.
Bill is confusing me with someone else or he is just dishonest and trying to influence the discussion with Jose Luis.
I am also really sorry for Bill and his wife of her being in hospital though I don't understand where it is related to our discussion. So let's please stick to the factual part of the discussion.
I apologize for binging the Texan aspect in if it hurts Bill's feelings. I was referring to a posting of Bill dated April 19, 2015 were he stated that he is much aware of the Texan element when he stated "I hope that I do not come across too arrogant, but I am a Texan and it is in my DNA...some things cannot be helped. ;)". I am in the opinion that Bill crossed the line of decency in the discussion with Jose. He did not responded to the real message of Jose, but merely turned it into a rant for The Amel Way (of which every member of this group is aware).
No opinion should be used in a way that it creates frustrated members and block any discussion outside of The Amel Way.
The example of the arch is just to question if The Captain would have advised to do this (as The Amel Way).
I would like to ask Jose Luis to have a close look at the conversation Bill had with Jose and determine if this is in line with the way of the forum where exchanging views and thoughts are to be treated with respect and not to be killed by having ownership of the absolute truth. No one has!
If Jose Luis decides I crossed the line, I will apologize to Bill and the group.
Leaves me to state that I absolutely value Bill's contributions though the way he puts them sometimes is hard to swallow.
Looking forward for your replies,
