I cannot say enough good about LumberJocks, and apparently, I’m not alone. I periodically like to see who’s online and go wandering through their projects and blogs (is MsDebbie ever offline?).
In my travels, I have read numerous entries about the value of LumberJocks. The testimonials to it’s unique ability to combine professional and amateur seem never ending. The enumeration of benefits received and friendships found goes on and on.
Oddly enough, I seem to be missing all the negative stuff. There are comments about disagreements and mentions of topics that caused discomfort, but I have yet to find them. There was some intensity about whether or not donors should be recognized, but that was pretty mild and subsided rather quickly.
The only real negative I found was a complaint that there was too much praise on the site. That struck me as terribly fascinating in that the biggest complaint I could find was that people here were just too darn nice. The mind boggles.
So, this is just an observation, but I feel compelled to ask, “Is there any dirt?” What’s the skinny on all this niceness? How is it that over 2000 people from all walks of life, with varying skill levels from all around the globe get along so well?
Are you people hiding something from me?
