  1. I've been asked to look into a little incident where someone was bagging on a new Trumpeter kit before the designs have even been finalised and plastic injected. This was on the basis that one or other parties is trolling - the anti-Trumpeter member trying to stir up negativity, or the reacting member trolling them. Looking at it from a divorced perspective however, it would appear that the reactive member is tired of the unremitting negativity toward Trumpeter, which some folks seem to bring up the moment a kit is mentioned, before the plastic has even been seen. I can understand both points of view, as it does get rather tiresome listening to the anti-Trumpeter posters bagging on them at every opportunity. Sure they often get it wrong, but those same folks are conspicuous by their absence when they get it right. I can see how people become anti-Xmanufacturer too, as they expect a high level of accuracy in their models, and get fractious when that's not achieved. It does come across as a bit odd when it becomes more of an obsession though, shoehorning it into every discussion possible, based on the mere mention of the brand name. However, there are ways of dealing with the negativity, and that's not attacking them, because you know what? That's just as bad. The anti-Xmanufacturer League (AXL) need to realise that they sound like a bunch of obsessively grumpy old men (probably true), and those without an allegiance also need to either learn to cope with their negativity and ignore it, or find better ways to express themselves when countering it. In truth though, as with any entrenched POV, there's little you can do to convince someone to change their minds. That time has long since passed. I know this because my Dad has hated Sean Connery for his "dead eyes" since I was a young lad, and mentions it every time. So what's the solution? It takes a bit of effort on both parts, and as always, if there's no will to change because they can't see the error of their ways, you're on a hiding to nothing. Some people are just infallible, y'know? If you're one of those folks that hates a particular brand, try not mentioning it every time they are brought up in a thread. It might be hard, but you may be able to make it out of the rut you're in, and become a little less bitter about it. If you're one without an agenda that finds their posts tedious and negative, why not try to exercise a little restraint of your own, and ignore them. If they are trolls, the oxygen of attention will feed their "hobby" of winding people up. If they're just genuinely bitter about that manufacturer, you could try looking at it as a foible of old age, but if you can't, just set that member to Ignore, and you'll never have to hear them again. Remember - it's the Season of Goodwill, so why not try to be a little nicer to your fellow modeller? A couple of last pictorial comments, and they're both favourites of mine: Merry Bloody Christmas all!
