That's great to hear and just confirms why PreservationTalk exists. This site spawned from contractortalk.com. Since I do mostly private/normal work, I was a regular participant over there. The preservation page was growing and, truthfully, the mods there did not know how to handle the traffic nor the topics/conversations. Numerous regulars there, including some current moderators at this site, were suspended/banned and it was an ongoing struggle to reason and explain to the average drywaller/plumber/sparky how this industry operates. The powers that be knew there was a need for the preservation end to have it's own site, so they moved all the indians to their own reservation, and here we are.
Preservationtalk is very tame compared to the daily flame wars that went on between reo and the other world subs and gcs on CT, however contractors generally are a pretty raggedy bunch anyway.
FYI, for all of the whining preservation posters were accused of over there, a quick read on CT will still find plenty of poor slobs posting about no pays, impossible to please customers, crooks and fruitcakes in the private sector.
