Before anyone bothers telling me….Okay maybe I shouldn’t even be Posting this, but this a little more than to much in my opinion. This kind of stuff bothers me on LJ’s …Yea! I know …etc.etc.etc.

This “Freedom Of Speech” was Posted in 3 Different places including his Own Profile where it would probably go unseen by most. What follows is my Reply to “grosa” in His Profile.


Your Words on 2 Other Posts……....

1-”I am starting to think L J’S is not the wood working site I thought it was. TO MUCH DRAMA HERE.”

2-”I am a little disappointed here. One angry mans words got 8 people barking at each other. LET IT GO ! Get in the shop and create something.”

Then On Your Own Profile—“I have only been here a week and I have been going through this L J’S site. From what I see 99% of the people get along with each other and help newer wood workers excel in this field. I have seen some posts where people are arguing with each other. If you look at the comments on that page, EVERYTHING on that page is negative. This is very disappointing. I like it here. I would like to stay here. Can’t the owners of this web site ban them from this sit for good so everyone else can enjoy the site. Life has enough drama. I really don’t want to see it here.”

AND—”I haven’t replied earlier because “I had an issue with the web site”. I will post more pics. of my work and the shop if I can figure out how to post them.”

GEEEEZ MAN!!!!! What Is YOUR Problem!!!!!

You’ve been on here 8 Days now and already you want to have other LJ’s banned by the Owners. Things are disappointing to YOU because it’s to Negative for YOU. YOUR LIFE has too much Drama. YOU don’t want to see it here.

A couple of your other Posts are saying the same thing.. YOU are upset at other LJ’s because they are Arguing with each other or are too Negative. There’s a Spammer in here WE (Other LJ’s) have been trying to get off here. You go on there and Critisize US for doing that and say that it’s “One angry mans words BLAH BLAH…”Get in the shop and create something”.

YOU! After ONLY 8 Days have NO idea how this site Operates! But! It’s NOT operating the way YOU Want it to! So YOU want all the other LJ’s to do it YOUR WAY. YOU want The Owner to change things for YOUR Satisfaction!

What you Posted above should have been Posted in the “Coffee Lounge Forum”. Or in “ Feedback Forum” Not on your Profile.

The way YOU want it done is NOT the way This Site works! It Has worked Just Fine for as long as I can remember.

Maybe YOU should just RELAX and get use to LJ’s before YOU start running around Criticizing everything that’s not to YOUR Liking!

You know what the “Block Button” is for? You do now!

I love your quote at the bottom

—Dyslexic Devil Worshipers Sell Their Soul To Santa

That is so cool, can I steal it and use it somewhere else?

Life is like that. People disagree all the time. Get used to it. Feel free to block me if you find my words dissapointing.

Oops, sorry that was a little to dramatic, wasn’t it?

Greetings Rick (catchy name, ain’t it?),

I got on here one night last week to take a look see, and this guy had posted 13 projects nearly in a row..
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but he took up so much room on there, nobody had a chance to post their projects…..I like to look at the blogs and projects, and I think a person shouldn’t hog the whole thing…....13 projects is a lot to post, anyway…..But he does beautiful work, and his projects are great, but just learn to share, and leave room for others

Thank you all for your Comments. As I said up top. The “Words” are in fact My Reply to “grosa” in his Profile.

This Post is NOT about ME, NOT being able to “Move On”, or “Change the Channel” or “Being In A Bad Mood”.

Martyn: “Life is Like That. People Disagree All The Time. Get used To It” You’re apparently directing Your “Instructions” to ME. Those are “grosas words and actions” NOT Mine!

I can assure you that I know what “Life Is Like” and I got “Used To It” a Long Time Ago! Do NOT even begin to believe that MY LIFE is NOT….Fully Under Control Thank you very much! WHY would I find the need or have a reason to block YOU? Because Your “Words are Dissaponting”? ( NO! Not ANGER Folks. I’m just not a “Turn The Other Cheek” type of guy. ;-} ) Also: I Un-blocked “grosa” yesterday.

SO! Please Allow Me To Summarize: _MY Post is about someone who wants to change pretty well everything he see’s on here after 8 days as a Member. I posted this so OTHER LJ’s would be aware of that and we could possibbly “Nip It In The Bud.”__That’s IT in a Nutshell!!

Since then I have seen another suggestion from Him agreeing that Another Section/Forum should be SET UP on LJ’s where LJ Members could VOTE, ON THEIR OWN to have another LJ’er KICKED OFF, and/or BANNED from this Site!!!

If that day ever came…I’d be off here in 20 Seconds or Less!

RESULT… Of My Posting: .... “grosa” apparently got the message from the SAME Posting (As Above) that I did on his Profile. The Following is a Cut & Paste that I just did. It’s From HIS Profile that He filled in about four hours ago.

” OK, I see your point. Sorry wont happen again. I’m out.”

”—It’s not just a job its a passion !”

Dennis: Please feel free to make use of ANYTHING of mine that you might see anywhere on LJ’s. THAT’s one of the Great Things about LJ’s. Same as “snodog” even though He thought you were asking about HIS Signature Line …LOL…Right snodog? A “concealed weapon”! YIKES! I have One Also but I didn’t know that I had to get a Licence for it…LOL..

Speaking of “Sno” Do you know what a “Sno Storm & Sex” have in common?... “You never know how long it’s gonna last or how many inches you’re gonna get.” HA! Actually it’s been so long since I’ve had sex, I’ve forgotten Who Ties Who Up.

Charlie & notottman (aka The Fonz..Good One!) & OttoH: Thank you for your Humorus and accurate Postings.

Rick: HELL Of A Catchy Name My Friend!! Richard EH? Ricky NOT! ...LOL…

Regards: Rick

Rick – I am not dictating to you. I am completely aware that the words quoted are grosa’s and that’s who my words are meant for. As their name is mentioned in your post title I would think they would read this.

Rick, I owe you a formal apology. I did not mean to piss any one off, that was not my intention. I have not posted anything because I did not want to add flue to the fire. I am sorry. I also apologize to all the others on LJ’s that I offended. I don’t know what else to say but sorry! There are a lot of talented people on this site. I was trying to get involved with it. I guess I went about it the wrong way. All I can say to you and everyone else is I am sorry.

-- Have a great day.

Rick: NUTS!! ” Are YOU talking to ME?” (My Danny DeVito impression)..

In any event I’ll second “notty’s” statement and also welcome you back Mr. Grosa!!!

I got a little carried away with my Criticism and I offer You my Apologies for having done so. So that gesture on BOTH of our parts puts US back to where we should be …....2 Really Nice Guys! ...LOL… 2 Members of LJ’s. A really Great Site! With a Lot of Talented and Great Members, always anxious to learn from Others and Freely Give to Others what Knowledge they may Possess!! “It don’t get much better than that!!”

I had a look at your Projects and they truely are the work of a Skilled Craftsman!! I, as well as other LJ’ers look forward to seeing more of your Projects.

Best Regards: Rick (aka Forrest Gump)

PS: I noted your Frustration with Installing Images on here from PhotoBucket. I went through the same thing until I figured the following out. When you’re on the page in PB that says “Upload Images and Videos” (From your Computer) in wee litttle letters below that it says “more options”. Click on that and you’ll get a screen as follows…

More Upload Options

Resize my images to:

Tiny ( 100×75 ) 1280×960
Small ( 160×120 ) 1600×1200
Medium ( 320×240 ) 2048×1536
Large ( 640×480 ) 2592×1944
15” screen ( 800×600 ) 3648×2736
17” screen ( 1024×768 ) 4000×3000

There are Radio buttons beside each one. I usually click “Large”, click “Save” and it’s loaded into PB at that size. They fit quite nicely on here and on occassion so does the “Medium” size. You can change that sizing any time you want to.

I clicked “Properties” on a few of your photos and it shows that the size is 1024×768 that is the “17 screen size” which will Completely FILL a 17” Screen. So that’s the size your trying to download into here. Won’t Work! ...LOL…

You can also Re-Size ANY Image you NOW have on PB simply by clicking on the Image, it opens, click “edit” at the top of the pic, click “resize”, new window, choose size, click save (“copy of” or “replace original” size). Done!

Note: You can only resize to a Smaller size, you can’t make it a Larger size.

I upload at “Large” and while I’m in there foolin’ around I also load in a Second one at Medium Size, just in case, for possibble, later use.

As an example. While we were “Chatting” I went into PB and Resized a Large Photo as Below to Medium also as below and kept the Original Large.

It’s one of a few “Design Builds” that we did Many Moons ago. It’s a “Ricky Designed, One Simple Truss Does All, Walls & Ceiling” Top Joined, on Site, Cottage, we did for a Client.

Dysart 512x550

Large Size 512×550

Dysart 300x320

Medium Size 300×320

If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Okay, gotta go, working on a new design for some End Tables.
