My post wasn't aim at you, just a general observation that I have.
I don't tell the GWC what to do and what I want to do but to make a friend with them. That solve the problem for me.
If you make friends with those so call GWC which big gear, then, they really paiseh to even block you. It is a communication and articulation skills. Do you think a friend will block your way? this is what I mean...
As I mentioned, the idea is to basically use the best you can offer and it reduce the chance of being "compared to". It is not an absolute term, so just common sense.
