Hi I'm Back! John Ruhnke...

First I want to thank Dan for his confidence in me. After I won the RPA contest in 2005 it has given me a big ego boost. I tried to move into a more of a leadership role on the wall. Two results of my overinflated ego were the Engineers rant and the Global Warming Rant. I failed miserably in both. I still plan to try and become a leader. I will learn from my past mistakes and be smarter and better. I now have to choose my words more carefully and of course choose what to debate over. I also need to learn to walk away and cut my loses from certain situations like the GW debate. I will try hard to make you proud of me. Instead of embarrassed of me.

One of my goals is to make sure you are glad Dan asked me back and that you are happy with what I post. I admire everyone here a lot and care greatly what you think. I am not perfect and sometimes I will make mistakes. Also, sometimes I will disagree with the general consensus. Overall though you should be pleased with me. I do not plan to get in another situation that would cause Dan to have to shut me down again.

Thanks,

John Ruhnke

    John.......

    Like a son (you)that didn't see eye-to-eye with Dad (Dan), your exile has cleared your head and we're all glad you are "back." We all must take the hard road at times. Welcome Back. If you want to a leader, you will be one. Good leaders are not created or born over night. Welcome back Mad Dog

    Yo John!

    Great to see you at the NY Big Ugly in April but especially back on the wall- your self-assessment and perspective are refreshing and give an incredible boost in my esteem of you. Good for you! It takes a big man to do that.

    Welcome back

    I know the GW debate got a little heated :) but it was one of the few posts of that length that I read every one of!

    I learned a lot from that thread, as I do here every day.

    Debate is good, but everyone needs to consider both sides of the argument and others feelings as well.

    Hmmmm....

    I always appreciate a good debater, and even go overboard a bit myself at times.

    I wish you well and peace.

    John ,
    Welcome back.
    Your perspective is unique please don't change that.

    I have been acccused,(mostly by my wife and children)that I don't have the ability to ever admit I'm wrong about a subject.
    I'm not sure where that comes from? After all, I may not alway's be right but I'm very seldom wrong.

    BTW, How did you make out at that condo I met you at in New Canaan?

    Peace,
    Keith

    I left them a messege but haven't heard back yet.
