I8pie2day, once you've been around us a while you will see that we all like to poke fun at ourselves and each other. Your original post was so 'over the top' that we just couldnt resist.
No harm was meant.
Your idea of gathering skinners for a big project is a good one. It might be difficult getting enough together though, the GUIC is comming up and lots of us are busy getting ready for that.
If you want to learn how to skin things, just pick something you use and dive in! There are lots of people here who will help you when you have a question.
