I asked this question when I first got to Atlanta as well, and recieved millions of different answers, which most made no sense at all. I agree that bad hobbyists do come in all shapes, sizes, and COLORS. As do providers. My personal opinion is to judge the man and not his AGE or RACE. But in the end it is ultimately the providers decision. I believe there are alot of providers here (besides myself) that still see AA hobbyists and older hobbyists. I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Keep your spirit up Im sure you are a wonderful man!!!
