I’m a newbie, but i will give it a shot.

This is a huge forum. Huge spectrum of people socio-economically, age, sex, parts of the country, etc. Then you have the skill levels from none to Master. Throw in the specific interests (and inversely the not-at-all interests).

I saw that huge post. It is a lounge type post and does no harm. It is a social thing. Why not? I even made one comment at 200 posts that was a little too risque that they removed and you can see the confusion at around 200 posts about why they were 200 then became 199 magically. lol But I understand. The moderator made a call. I might have done the same thing myself. This is a family forum. It’s all good.

What you want to see and what I want to see is probably quite a bit different. I am not into bowls and pens and boxes. I can appreciate the fine work when I come across it. I keep my mouth shut about the fairly large ration of stuff that I think is a waste of time. But its not my time, and they like their stuff so I can appreciate whatever makes somebody happy to make AND the other people that make and approve of those things.

I was active in the RX-7 club forum for years. The largest post on that site in the 1st generation sections with many thousands of reads and thousands of posts was a thread titled “You know you are a first generation RX-7 owner when…” All the posts are all the members sharing mostly humorous comments that would mean something only to an enthusiast / owner. They made a t-shirt with scores of the best sayings on the back in the shape of a rotor (triangle) that i must say included three of my posts. What was the harm?

So, just be glad all these fine people are on here and there are many that share our same passions or have knowledge or opinion that we are able to seek out just by posting.

It’s all good. Something for everybody.
