I want to apologize…Yesterday I spent time on different woodworking forums trying to get information out about my new molder fences. I am new to “forums” and to trying to market a product. I am actually a Technology Education teacher (Industrial Arts) that came on a new idea and I got stuck between a rock and….because I did not want to necessarily get into the marketing business but I felt obligated to get this out to people who might be able to use these. Anyway, Yesterday I was home sick and I took the opportunity to begin trying to get the word out. I googled “Williams and Hussey forum” and I couldn’t believe all the discussion there was about this machine. I immediately saw an opportunity and took it by signing up for as many forums as I could and posting info about this product. After talking with my neighbor who is somewhat of an internet marketing guru and telling him what I did, he calmly and politely told me that this could be and probably would be considered by members of the forum as “spamming.” Like I mentioned, this is all new to me and I am not fully aware of the communication nuances of the internet community. After much discussion with him I realized that I may have understandably offended some of you. Though I did not get any negative feedback, I want to make it clear that it is not my style to be “sneaky.” I was a professional woodworker for 15 years and I greatly respect the craft. Thanks, everyone for the feedback you did give, and I wish you all many happy wood chips. I will find a more respectable way of doing this.
