Was never a WSPA member but can relate to the sentiment shared here and completely agree with Chris. That’s why I “signed off” of the internet for a few years and stopped helping new folks. It’s easier to keep hunting gold with a few close friends and forget the community. People like to focus on the good side of prospecting but there can be a lot of heartburn when you put yourself out there to help folks. As crappy as that might sound at least it’s real.
No need to mention names but I’ve been burned trying to help newbies several times. People will promise to never return to an area you share with them without further invitation and they will break that promise. They will return by themselves and with others. This kind of stuff and what Chris described sours you. The best medicine is exactly what Chris said, move on. Now matter how sour you feel, go and find your peace. I found my peace and am a better and smarter man for the experience. No hard feelings, these are lessons I am actually glad to have learned.
Kwah, you nailed it. Good decisions come from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions. Don’t expect much from people and they will never let you down.
As far as censorship, censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.
