Hi Gang
As the title says”I’m just trying to have fun” and I am and I don’t intend to let others take that away from me. After being a member here for some time and commenting quite a bit(some would say too much) I occasionally run across members that seem to enjoy challenging everything I say and everyone else says on any subject and sometimes their comments turns into mean and hateful personal attacks . I can agree to disagree with anyone,because a difference in opinion is what makes the world go around, but once it gets personal and the person engaged in what others call Troll like behavior,I have no problem with blocking them and I offer no apologies for doing so . I guess I don’t understand folks that act that way and can only guess they are very unhappy people,under the influence of alcohol or other substance or that just think it’s fun to be hateful. I know no matter who you are there are those who will dislike you for what you say or at least what they think you are saying,and that’s fine, no is liked by everyone. As for me I’m a member here like most folks to share,learn and communicate with folks that have similar interest the same as I do and make friends,generally have fun online. For the many folks that I have fortunately had the opportunity to become friends with I’m very grateful for your friendship,thank you. For those that dislike what I say or contribute ,I’m sorry about that .

To everyone and I do mean everyone, I wish you all the happiest and most joy-filled holiday season and beyond

A

Jim,

I’ve appreciated your tips, and I use them. I laugh because it’s better than getting irritated and angry, when someone makes a sarcastic response. Woodworking in general is an individual experience which can be shared (if your sociable or having to work for money :) ) but often people in this area are self made craftsman.

My sense of humor tends to be on the “how ironic” side, and it has wider variety than others. And I generally don’t share that except when it’s about me. Many do not share my view.

My suggestions come from reading the masters and attempting to apply their techniques. Sometimes my advice is not received well. So I do understand that there are many solutions to a problem, and we all have to find what works for us.

I’ve also learned “what’s said on the internet stays on the internet.”

Best wishes to you, and all the many friends I’ve gained since Charles Neil suggested I check out Lumberjocks this holiday season.

Jim, you’re a great ambassador for Lumberjocks. Your attitude is always welcoming, positive, and professional. I wish the administrators could take a stronger approach to eliminating those who consistently bring negativity to this site, but I realize that’s a fine line. Anyway, keep up the good work, stay positive, forget about the negative people, and have a merry and blessed Christmas.

”I guess I don’t understand folks that act that way and can only guess they are very unhappy people,under the influence of alcohol or other substance or that just think it’s fun to be hateful.”

I think you could have made your point without including this.
Looks to me like your just taking a shot at him.

Believe me, I’m not sticking up for him, I see him in the middle of every controversial thread on here.
It’s just better to let it go than making sarcastic remarks about it.
A lot of people here look up to you, I think your above that.

Happy Holidays!!

Jim,
I completely disagree with you, how silly can you be to think that! I have never heard of such an absurd thing, I will challenge you on that one. You are by far the silliest person on LJ ;)

I get what you are saying Jim, wish it wasn’t that way too. I think those that just want to argue make it an unpleasant place to share ideas. Hope all is well down there. I keep threatening to come down there and see your place, hopefully one of these days I will actually get to.
Hope you are having a great day. Take care
Brian

Jim, your right on the money as far as I’m concern. Life is to short to sweat the little things.
Also a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

I played that one with a few “intellectuals” on a different site for almost 2 years…after repeated requests to see my doctoral dissertation, including demands on whether it was “peer reviewed” (meaning the guy sitting in the same cubicle read it over lunch and agreed with it), I finally gave up the joke (didn’t go over well). Have you tried that Fiskar’s Phd? Offset handles that let you dig a lot deeper without a huge hole…needed it to plant one of these.

Ignore the idiots Jim. Small % that are haters. So many great people the block option is great for the .0001 %... Some people are so unhappy and jealous the y want everyone around them to feel the same.

Keep posting bud.

I guess you hang out with a smarter group than I do, but evidently get the same results from our corny sense of humor.

This is the type of PHD”s I have.

Many posters on LJs are great: Jim, knotscott, Charles Neil. Yet I have seen them all attacked. I don’t understand it at all. It is like seeing others gettng some respect gets under their skin and they need to attack.
