A Better #EFT

A couple of weeks ago arguments started that are still weighing on our community. People took sides. Things got heated, and then the personal attacks started.

Land Work in the Grand Scheme of the Oil and Gas Industry [Repost] [Archives]

This was originally posted on LandmanLife.com on June 11, 2014 back when I was a younger, dumber landman.

Reading through it, I remember everything…but since it was from July of 2014, let’s just say it wasn’t fresh on my memory.
