"Let's all have fun with this hobby!"
Plus I also respect someone else's right to do what they want. Referring to buy or sell encased chips or tokens. Just because I don't please don't interpret that as my wishes to control and demand that others think and feel the same way. I think that's the respect part and agree to disagree?
The entire group of members, friends, associates and whatever else, is made of differences. I collect far different chips than many others. (holy cow, hardly anyone love's Wisconsin) I collect faux chips, fake chips that never saw a casino. And some roulette, others refuse to collect roulette chips. We have one core point of agreement, we all collect casino related items, used in wagering or not.
I think we are more together and in agreement, similar interests for most of the members than the small number who make big noises now and then. Since I don't care for politics I really don't pay attention. We're all in this together and since the start, the whole group has been friendly, sharing and willing to include anyone interested, with open arms. I've never belonged to a friendlier club or group in my entire life and I'm an old fart, been in many.
I collect for fun. I'd also rather look at all the many positives of the club, and the people who make up this group, rather than dwell on some few small differences or potential negatives.
