No, certainly not. But I repeat, shoe repair is not shoemaking. And a cobbler is not a shoemaker.
You appear to have a bee in your bonnet and intend to parade your ignorance at every opportunity possible.
But I started this
thread also. It is about shoemaking
, not shoe repairing. It is about Traditions and techniques of shoemaking. It is not about shoe repair techniques.Or
machine techniques. Or people who have so little respect for shoemaking traditions and techniques that they would rather emulate a machine than be
a shoemaker or apply the skills of a shoemaker.
If it is a good way to make money...great! But that doesn't make it shoemaking nor does pretending it is make it an appropriate subject for this thread.
I'm not a moderator nor is it my intent to police the the discussions here. But, again, I started this thread. I have a vested interest in it and in seeing to it that misinformation from clueless wannabes is corrected, at the very least. I want...I intend...that this thread (and the other) be ones where people can get objective, knowledgeable, and professional advice and information.
I started this thread and I am here and I'm gonna be
here. And I'm gonna oppose and point out every instance of pretense and baseless, clueless, unsubstantiated, "personal experience" (but really no experience), opinionating.
