Do not remove your spokes, that guy was giving you a hard time.
Please do not post in all upper case, it is considered shouting, thanks.

Likewise, type slowly when explaining complex technical issues, so that you will be better understood.

Use a spoke wrench, and turn it counterclockwise, or clockwise. To remove a spoke, the tire should off, most likely.

Spokes are balanced in tension against each other. If you remove one, the opposing spoke will pull the rim.
Spoke patters are designed in multiples of 4, and the holes are spaced evenly. Dont go removing spokes for fun, it wont work.
