New thoughts on MIDSCAR

The last couple of days have been filled with a lot of arguing back and forth between me, Michael Stanga, Dan Fruechte, a supposed met student from SCSU, and a member of MIDSCAR. Lots of arguing and bashing back and forth, but eventually someone got through to the kid from MIDSCAR. Sounds like Mike Scantlin was the one to get the kid to realize the way he was coming off to people and is now taking steps to get his reputation back. That won't happen overnight, but he took a huge step in the right direction when he joined Stormtrack to confront everyone and apologize for the way he acted. He has a lot of passion for weather and chasing, and with the big amount of knowledge he will get from ST, no doubt he will have a good season in 2010. Good luck Chris!
So, the MIDSCAR issue has blown over, but the other person I was going after on Youtube still hasn't come around and I highly doubt he ever will. Apparently he is a second year met. student at St Cloud State but you wouldn't know that by watching his videos. The MIDSCAR team asked him to come on board as a severe wx forecaster, but after Chris (the guy from MIDSCAR I was talking about above) came around he realized that this other kid wasn't someone they wanted on their team. All I'll say is that the met. kid really doesn't know anything about weather or chasing but still tries to tell real chasers that they are dumber than him at chasing eventhough he has never chased a day a in his life.

Anyways, glad that this has all gotten worked out for the most part. Before anyone comes on here saying I'm playing the chaser police card, realize that I was just trying to get Chris to realize how he was coming off and that there is a better to approach chasing. As for the other kid, well I just enjoy pissing him off.

Anyways, I've done some work to my website getting a couple of chaselogs including getting part of May 20th, July 13th, and all of July 14th done. I still have to finish the rest of the chaselogs but hoping to get a lot more done this weekend. If you want to check it out and even give some feedback check it:

Geeze...I'm going to be able to retire pretty soon from picking on interweb chasers and spotters pretty soon. Dean kicking ass and keeping a body count. As soon as I finish off the MSW fogies shortly (and it will be finished), I think I'll sit back and watch you take the lead. Time for some new blood to carry the torch on calling out the morons. Good thing you got all that experience dealing the OWS boys.

lol thanks Bill. I've only done this a couple times but even still I know it hardly ever turns out where the person eventually ends up taking the advice. It took this kid quite a while to realize it, but thankfully he finally came around. But I can't take all the credit, Stanga definitely helped out and I think Mike Scantlin was the one who actually got the kid to turn his mind around. Either way I'm glad something positive came out of it. One down, a million to go...

By the way, how are things going with MSW? Sounds like quite the battle.

Geez. I go off hunting and generally ignoring everything online and miss all the fun... dangit.

LOL Andrew. I can gurantee it won't be the last drama this winter. I think it's seriously time to get SDS declared a real condition.

Some of these losers just seriously need to find a life in the winter. FIND SOMETHING TO DO, PEOPLE!

Thank you for at least making a second post and letting people know it was cleared up. I'll admit I was being a hardass and all so I think I burned some bridges. Over time though, I hope to fix those. I got put in my place, and I deserved it. At least I didn't "see the light" too late!
