In Martins last change to the Lumberjock pages he changed the “Jock” button to “Members”.

Wait a minute this is not Lumbermembers it’s LumberJocks. I vote for putting the Jock name back on the button.

I don’t know of any Jock or Jockette who has complained about that name.

This message is all in good fun, but, I like to be known as Jock.

I mean my home page is

What do you think?

I would agree with Karson—-I want to be known as a jock as well. We are part of a unique community.

I hadn’t actually noticed till you mentioned it but I hear your rallying cry.
Karson you have my vote.
We want to be Jocks not just members.
Every site has members
We have a pretty unique group of guys a gals here
and I agree we deserve our JOCKS status.

PS: the fact that Karson sent me some real nice pen blanks in the trade
did not sway my opinion in any way. ;-)

Martin …How could you do such a thing? After coming up with a cool site name like LumberJocks? I am shocked and bewildered. I think I may have an identy crisis…Am I a Jock or a Member? I guess that would depend upon who you asked at the time.

PS …Frank, I believe you ;-)

I would prefer Jock myself Karson.

I have a shirt that I bought from the one and only Martin that tells me I am a LumberJock.

After I spent good monies to get my nice bright yellow shirt…Is he going to change my shirt out to LumberMember?? I bet he won’t. Nor would I want him to…..

Once a LumberJock…..always a LumberJock I say! Here, here!!!!

I think LumberJock is gender neutral.

I recently read an article about females being referenced as “guys” One woman complained that she wasn’t a guy but (it might have been Ann Landers) did a survey and found that amongst themselves women often say: “Hey, guys. Let’s go here” or whatever. Ann Landers puts the gender neutral class to guys so I think we can be assured that Lumberjocks is gender neutral.

Ya gotta remember that Martin doesn’t live here in the States so might be a little late in the nuances.
