MORON ,Thanks for the heads up . Already have most of your works downloaded from from the last time you were thinking of leaving . That cabinet that you made that your little girls used to play in was something that I related to .Mine had mirrored doors and my little girls used to hide and play in it also . I was showing my little girl ( now grown and with a baby ) something or other of your work and she noticed your avatar and asked “Whats that ” ? . I replied ” Thats a diarama of a little wooden man , with his bibs down ,next to a log .” What does that mean ,Dad ? ” Well.dear ,when you are out hunting and you need to go number two , then it is best to find a log . I, as a child , have seen your grandpa do this on more than one occasion while out hunting , and believe me , .......not a treasured memory ” !!! Then we both laughed uproariously …......so thanks from both of us for providing some humor and sharing your woodworking with us . Best wishes for you.and regards always …....MOMENT .

I had enough of LJ’s for a while, it really got away from what it was when I joined, so I went off (playing chess badly). But I came back, and I’m glad I did. Just don’t let the idiots get to you.
You are a very talented woodworker, sorry you’re leaving. It’s LJ’s loss.

Reviews where a freshly opened box of hamster fodder is a given 5 stars

expert advice from droves of woodworkers who’s greatest achievement is a sanded block of construction lumber or the 73rd thousandth pen

political non sense

religious furor

gangs of groupies armed with endless bandwidth

Finishing expertise right of the label of a can bought at Wal-Mart.

This site was a gift many years ago and almost 5 years later has since been reduced to the above. A small view into a microcosm of the world to which we live where greed and ego seem to have no bounds and all funded by the corporate giants that so many love to bash. A perfect paradox

Moron, now is not the time to quit. We still have the good fight to fight. #1 we can’t do anything about, #2 and #3 Nathan took care of, #4 is the good fight…like thinkers group together (right thinking or wrong thinking) #5 isn’t worth fighting over. Stick around it’s fun. Also, you do good work. These folks need your help and expertise. If a spade needs to be called spade…then it should be called out.

BTW, I can do #5…therefore I’m an expert.

I hope you might reconsider your decision, for the reasons given by DKV as well as the need for more people like yourself, a skilled commercial craftsman being on this site. You make it better by staying, not by going away.
It’s easy to find the good stuff here (and the good stuff is really good) and even easier to ignore the dreck. That’s my feeling.
Besides, LJ needs more Canadians on the rolls – “Land of the Free and Home of the Sometimes Brave”.
There’s no shame in changing your mind but do as you will.

one would think a “death certificate” would suffice ?

apparently not…….

I just got here. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m sorry to have missed you. I’m just trying to keep occupied until Jesus gets here. Keep the faith, He is coming. After the final judgement all memory of this world will be wiped away with our tears. What they said and they themselves will be put away. Have faith and forgive. “Vengance is mine” saith the Lord. “I will repay.” God bless and good luck.

oxy”moron”, the perfect paradox

you cant “die” on LJ’s, they simply force you to live an untimely death, ultimately determined by “them” the group of seven, my fav., Emily Carr. and the wanna be hers. Seriously though I really like Emily Carrs work. She was awesome and wished I owned a piece of her art. I’ld settle for “cut out” the signature. Not sure if Emily was very religious but I am certain that she was extremely spiritual. Not sure if there is a difference though but time has taught me to fear the radical religion more so then to fear the radical spiritual. …… to a degree, they are the same.

that said I will never ever hold even a grain of sand up in the air to ever believe that a spiritual woodworker is better then a woodworker that is an atheist, or religious, dont matter which crowd you pick, there will be a liar amongst them : ( …perhaps an opinion but my experience has led me to believe it might be a fact based on yet unsubstantiated surveys ; )

Friends who wish you well, who hide behind a cloak of BS, are not the friends I need, nor want.

Another long Eulogy ?……….cuz the moderators r like politicians and constantly lack the intestinal fortitude to make bad choices (wisdom doesnt come from good ones ; ) , instead bending to corporate greed which I personally feast upon, its a paradox ………and it doesn’t end at woodworking

You seem like a bitter person, with a talent for working with wood. I dont want to sound crass, but perhaps you should look inward, the demons you rail against may be closer than you think. I will pray for your comfort.

All these good byes, good lucks, we’ll miss ya’s is beyond amazing. All this love in the air, on the web, permeating LJs with a thick coating of comaraderie and brothership. I could almost cry…wait I feel a tear coming. You guys are just the greatest to give moron such a joyful sendoff with no thought for yourself for any wrongs, dings, trolling, schmolling, swearing or disagreements that you may have had with him or perceived to have had with him.

Nathan, take a look at a thread just full of “play nice”. Now this is what we want in a woodworking site. Folks getting along, sharing hammers, coffee and problems. Not just sharing problems but downright working on them together until they no longer exist. Sheesh!, what a group of scouts. What a group of guys (gals included) to go to these lengths to make a fellow LJ feel loved and respected. I was getting bored until this thread came along.

I still haven’t seen any good byes from Joe or JimC. They’re probably waiting to the end to say their adios’s (sp?) Good luck moron. May god be with you and forever ride at your side.
