Topic tags/keywords: question

Every now and then it seems we run into some conflicts with members who are at odds for one reason or another.
Some members are die hard craftsman who only want to see WOOD used in each post, others ask questions, share experiences and give out priceless information. Of course there are also the nut cases, miserable SOB’s and certified lunatics lurking around.
Does anyone comprehend that this is a Social Network with the emphasis on SOCIAL? That means that we should be “social” to all members irrespective of our personal agenda, that’s what it is all about.
I talk to anyone and everyone, don’t have any enemies, don’t Block, and read posts with an open mind, but I do love to read happy and funny posts the most. I don’t take sides and I don’t take much notice of some baited posts, but in reality some people are like that and sometimes these post are make for fun and taken far too seriously by some.
Life is too short to include pissing contests, making enemies or wasting your time being angry. Remember the key word is SOCIAL, so let’s all try to be that way.

You hit the nail on the head – or wait – should I post that on a construction forum?? Maybe you glued and screwed it?

in any case, well said!

You know me, Roger, I’m always social and sociable too…..Some on here don’t even try to be, so I
pass on a lot of things that I see no use for, but I am social when people are socialable….....

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 concur, it is enjoyable being in the audience sometimes. You know me, I always see the funny side of everything.

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.

Abbott, were you aware that this is Be Kind to Coyotes Week?

I like all comments here but this is the best one ””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.””
Abbott this beats any contest.

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.

Now then what would your days and night be like.

By the way, How are you feeling – except for this mental deficiency that is starting to become apparent.
