I have no problem if people want to get into a pissing contest over some minute and mundane issue. But it is rather funny to watch how those things evolve. It’s like a fight on the football field…. it starts between just two people, then another steps in to break it up and gets hit by an errant punch so he starts swinging, and before you know it, it’s a free-for-all. I personally find it all rather entertaining. I have three choices: I can participate, I can just read along for grins, or I can ignore the mess entirely. Problem solved.

Now you, my furry friend, are another matter. You should get a new avatar instead of the current one where your hand is shielding your face. We all want to know what a Britexan really looks like. :-)

I think we could add a bit to this Roger. I think some people here ought to not try and force their belief system onto others and realize that many different types of people use the Internet and this forum. This forum is incredibly mild compared to many thousands of others becuase everyone here is mature enough to properly post without a few trying to use their friends to rat-pack people that don’t agree with their point of view.

Something else I have noticed is that for all of it’s worth, the Block List makes it pretty much impossible for some disagreements to be settled. Such as other members threatening to try and have members “banned” if they don’t follow their personal wishes.

Now I’m all for trying to get along but it seems that some folks are just such zealots that they make it darn near impossible for any kind of breathing room to be found. Then after their flames they run behind skirts to hide and try and look like some kind of Internet Hero while always pointing the finger and saying “There, there is the bad guy” and I am Mr. Clean.

Roger: What kind of lunatic are you. Be kind to everyone. You know if that were true there would be no differences in each of us.

If there were no differences then there would be no discussions.

If there were no discussions then there would be no reason to post.

If there was no reason to post then no one would show up here.

If no one showed up here then Martin would get rid of the site.

I never thought about hijacking. So here goes.

An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a
stay of execution.
His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling
worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about,
‘What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been?
Dinner is cold and I’m not reheating it’. And on and on and on….....

Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured
himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the
bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged
himself up the stairs.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that
her husband’s client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after
all.
Wright would not be hanged tonight .

Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go up
stairs and give him the good news.

As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband,
bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.

They’re not hanging Wright tonight,’ she said.

He whirled around and screamed, ‘FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON’T YOU EVER
STOP?!

Hey Karson, sorry if all the banter woke you up.
Now I agree you are different, but in a nice sort of way and it’s that diferent difference that differentiates you from the difference of other LJ’s – and even some of them differ.
I think Martin should add an “Old Fart Memories and Wisdom” section where seniors can recall the good old days when gas was 29c and you could buy a table saw for $52 and change.

I did manage to get to the shop yesterday for 4 hours and actually cut something with the BS, I could only get out of the wheelchair for 10 minutes at a time but it was great to being able to do something again.

Yeah my mental deficiency is coming along just fine, thats why I broke down and started this thread.

Glad you stoppedby O great one. BTW I did type this slowly for you as I know you can’t read very fast;

But you did use some big words Roger. I had to use my dictionary and Therisaras on some of them.

Senior Church Moment:

A Preacher was explaining that he must move on to a larger congregation that will pay him more. There is a hush within the congregation. No one wants him to leave.

Joe Smith, who owns several car dealerships in the city stands up and proclaims, ‘If the Preacher stays, I will provide him with a new Cadillac every year, and his wife with a Honda mini-van to transport their children!’

The congregation sighs in relief, and applauds.

Sam Brown, a successful entrepreneur and investor, stands and says, ‘If the Preacher will stay on here, I’ll personally double his salary, and also establish a foundation to guarantee the college education of all his children!’

More sighs and loud applause.

Sadie Jones, age 88, stands and announces with a smile, ‘If the Preacher stays, I will give him sex!’

There is total silence.

The Preacher, blushing, asks her, ‘Mrs. Jones, whatever possessed you to say that?’

Sadie’s 90 year old husband Jake is now trying to hide, holding his forehead with the palm of his hand and shaking his head from side to side, while his wife replies, ‘Well , I just asked my husband how we could help, and he said, ‘Screw him!’

Isn’t senility wonderful?

Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth!!!

Here’s some ‘nuggets’ for you, Roger:
I’m soooo tired of the ”people hide behind their computer” rap…as the senders of that tedious message do exactly the same thing.
I’m tired of people following a member around from forum to forum, venting their spleen at every opportunity.
I’m tired of people who don’t like me, putting me on their “Friends” list so they can monitor my activity and disrupt things wherever I go.
I’m astonished at the occaision of simultaneously being on somebody’s ‘Buddy List” ...and blocked by that person at the same time.
I’m tired of people who jump into a heated discussion and think they can gang up with the person with whom I’m debating, spoiling the lively animated fun of the debate.
I’m tired of people who create alternate member IDs so they can fly in and take pot-shots at me, thinking I don’t know who they really are. Just to subvert the ‘block’ thing.
I’m tired of people whose mission it is to ‘scold’ me for their perceived improprieties, like an elderly schoolmar’m.
I’m sick of members who send me PM pics of animal fecal matter. Yeah, I got ‘em. Yeah, real funny…
I’m sick of posts that are obviously ghostwritten, when words usually fail them in their typical literary style. However…..
I LOVE being blocked!! Mostly, I was thrilled by being blocked by a long-term LJ with whom I’ve never known, never encountered before. Kool..a pre-emptive strike! His threads suffer for it, though.
I love how some members want to make unflattering comments about other people’s projects without fear of reprisals. And yet they have none of their own projects posted!
I love how day-old members demand changes to this near-perfect site, as if it exists exclusively for them! It’s probably one of them alter-egos mentioned above.
I love people who insinuate that my posted projects are not my own…even as the works-in-progress shots in my own workshop testify to the origins!
So there you have it, Roger, my friend! Hopefully i’ve submitted enough stuff here to keep this thread active for a while! Hope nobody blows a gasket over the opinions I’ve posted…but let’s all just be ourselves, okay?

Good morning Poopie, how’s the weather up there today?
I see you are in top form.
One of the qualities of being a gentleman or lady is having the ability to “rise above” distasteful things and put them out of your mind because you gain nothing from engaging. It is natural for some people not to like each other – that’s a human frailty, but there is little to be gained by having knock down drag-outs. As we all come from different backgrounds and have varying ideas of woodworking and indeed what the LJ’s site should be or offer. IF each member of this site had his own way we would have 20k battles going on each day, so to elude this we settle for a reasonable set of rules and rely on the integrity and civility of members to make it work. This does not mean that we can’t disagree on things or not have fun. Everyone has something to say that is informative, helpful or just plain happy and funny, this brightens peoples’ days.
Poopie, you have a knowledge of antique furniture which is a great asset to this site, I have read some of your posts on the matter and learned a lot about old furniture and restoration. That is where you shine but these “he said – she said” routines tarnish your talent and people become bored, which obscures your real talent in furniture making and restoration. Your work is superb and knowledge great, spread your talent across this site for all to see, you will not be disappointed.
Here endeth today’s lesson.

Not so fast, Roger!
you’ve really hit the nail on the head, however! I don’t like being the only one who likes to talk about antique furniture, but outside of some great banter with Abbott yesterday, there’s never been an opportunity. It’s only one of my favorite topics. Yup, I have been in the trade as a restorer for a consortium in New England for a bit, and mostly realized early on that the only way to truly enjoy the craft is buy the item, restore it and sell it, rather than kowtow daily to ridiculous client demands. So, simply package up my labor and sell it outright on the street was the right way to go. I HATE getting crap from people. I have so much to say about antiques restorations, the American furniture industry 1850-1950, lumber harvesting, machine design, architectural millwork and standard detail, as well as off-topic areas like collectible US autos, rock music 1955-1975, Human Behavior and Group Psychology, Federal Reserve, and… it’s nigh impossible to fill a room with like-minded people that are willing to converse on those subjects. what DOES work in the LJ forum is tit-for-tat squabbles with people who go ballistic if their own belief systems are challenged. Wow, I have started threads that ballooned into 500 posts in a few days…. until they got tanked. What you have noticed, Roger, is that I can fill a room…by giving the people what they want. And… if testy spewage is what the people want, then I can dish it out. Recall the “I Am Poopiekat!!” thread! 264 comments in ONE day. I could never generate that much interest with a discussion about applied egg-and-dart gingerbread on a Sheraton-revival table. See? And, traffic, traffic traffic is what makes this fine forum profitable for our hosts. Glad to participate.
