Don, what's with that, you have no reason that I can see to do that. Don't give me any guilt by association junk, I'll have a hard time buying it.

Rep Power: 0 Rayztanning is an unknown quantity at this point
The "Czar Of Tanning Regulations" Don Smith, is on a banishment bandwagon. He locked out Steve from Solarmeter for asking a technical question about wavelengths that might show Don as deficient in science, he locked out, and banished dear Rod, for a polite question about regulation, locked you out a State Training representative, as a threat to his sovereign reign, and locked me out, without having posted in six months.

Seems we might actually ask an inconvient question or two.

Hiding, and living, with those unable to understand, those willing to genuflect and bow and scrape, before the altar of the almighty Don seems to be the way things must go, if you want to talk nowadays to "THE DON of TANNING" Don Smith.

Shame, in days of old, Don used to be FOR salons, now he wants all salon operators to have medical degrees, or not operate at all.

For goodness sake, we are NOT nuclear physicians here, we are NOT dealing with Plutonium Isotopes. We take people, put them in sunlight, and they turn brown.

No need for tomes of science, white smocked technicians, and national training schools for operators. What Smart Tan does, a one day class, in basic salon operations, is certainly enough.

Sheeesh.

At least Don isn't in control of the lockout button here, YET...

Take your woes back to tantoday. Don has chosen to be here, and for whatever the reason you are locked out of his site. That is there and not here.

If you want to participate here in a positive mode, great, if you want to mudsling and be negative that is not great.

Bruce I have been visiting your board and I told you that I would not participate in the mudslinging there or here, but enough is enough. Especially after your threads over there talking about how stupied we are. Just drop it.

Mitzieeeee~~~ no darl’n . . . cause you'd have to Raise your self out of the mud in order to sling it . . ..


Don: I too am disappointed in you as you are of me.

First you try to take my Den Mothers Position away - - -

You never responded to my concerns that you seem changed . . .. Unhappy and very quick to smack out without the Humor of Old . . . and that I wanted to help you.

Are you blocking posters / participants now due to possible health problems that may not allow you access to blocking them in the future?

I really respected you man!

You turn a blind eye to the crackwhore behavior from the gals here - and still try to insist, "here is where it's at” . . .

It's here all right . . .. But how many people do you know that need 2 a$$holes?

GO AWAY NOW SHELIA...
COME BACK LATER WHEN YOU HAVE A DEGREE IN SOMETHING OTHER THAN VERBAL ABUSE and JEALOUS NASTY SPUTTERING..
We invited you to be apart of a GREAT group of wonderful unique individuals who love and respect this industry.
Some of us are medical in our degrees and studied and worked hard to wear the white coats in our professions, others of us worked hard at buliding our client base and learning from our mistakes and wonderful people like DON.
You could have been apart of US Shelia. We welcomed you and all you did was make a mess and rant and scream and cut and be nasty and ugly and call names and try to prove how smart you are.
You NEVER even took the time to really read what we write here, you never took the time to participate.. YOU JUST BALKED and BALKED and wrote nasty verbal hate to those who didn't deserve any of it. Shame on you.
Even the "other board" doesn't like your style of interaction. ( we have the e-mails)!
Remember, I've been around this industry 71/2 years, people talk Shelia!
I'm not saying this to hurt your feelings, it's just that we are all tired of you.
It's not fun like you may think.. When we relized this is "you" we all pulled away going oh my god shes not just being silly and having fun, this is how she really is..
WELL WE DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH IT! WE ARE BUSY!
CHANGE or GO AWAY.
For the best intrest of everyone, pack your Websters and GO home. (where ever that may be).
Christine'

Sheila,
You don't know me and you will never know me. Unless we meet in Vegas or Nashville. If you think I would have to pull myself out of the mud, honey you are very wrong. But they, (what friends you have left) may very well be pulling your A$$ up off the floor.

I am finished with you until we meet face to face. If you continue to sling your verbage at me and my friends, I will take action face to face. I am not one bit intimidated by you.

The only issue at hand here is Don Smith has decided to stay here where it is peaceful exchange of ideas, and a genuine spirit of learning and growing in this industry.
Further more, the Other board.com isnt all bad just a few unfortunately one of the problems is the administrater himself, and well enough said.
I only wish they would get back to the real reason these site were created and STOP the pettiness.
Don is his own person and can and will make his own mind of when and WHERE he would like to post.
Just a note the only reason Bruces' little mind is bent out of shape is because Don choses not to be on his board.
CAN WE PLEASE GET BACK TO TANNING TOPICS>>>>
Bruce... get over it..
Think of it like this...even if it is true that don THINKS he is a Czar,.... That in no way interferes with your current KINGSHIP OF THE UNIVERSE...
Albeit, self proclaimed ..nothing a little prozac can't take care of.
Just my opinion
Sooooo, how is everyone busy season coming along??? Ihave to ask. is anyone else annoyed with the nailco crap thats going on...
and is anyone else exclusive with caltan??

To the Maven of Bandana Blvd.,
Do you lock your door at night up there in St. Paul? If Don deems it necessary to lock his doors to keep someone out it is his perogotive. His game, his rules, his decision. I don't remember reading any articles by you in any national trade magizines. The only thing I remember reading from you is the same droll, regurgitation of rhetoric as usual. Nothing new, just the same boring blah blah blah. Take Care of Golden Tan Salon over near Como and it will take care of you.

Rayz--Sheslob is calling you, better head home now ya hear?

To everyone else- As I was riding my Fatboy around the beautiful state of Florida today I really thought how proud of Chris I am. She out sells most northern salons in the summer when our biggest competitor lives right ourside our front door (That would be the Sun Sheila). It cleared the garbage out of my brain and let me realize the reason we are in business, it is because of people like you, Don, Tamar, Buntanner, Bronze , and everyone else who strive to be successfull and positive and most of all MJ, who is a big salon right NOW. Sell, educate,learn, and make deposits everynight. And don't let misguided, boring,drivel get us off our tracks.
Have a great week ahead.

I purpose a toast to Jim, Chris, Mitzi, tamar, and everyone else who is like minded about this industry....Ohh And Micheal who is being politly patiently waiting for his board to return from the pettiness they wish it impose on us.
I have decided that my Grandfather was wiser then I knew. He always said
"If you sweat the small stuff, you will be dehydrated when a real problem comes along."

Have a great season all....
