After the last couple of days of a mishmash of off topic comments I have made up my mind to not comment on anything other than woodworking or woodworking related. If someone has a problem with me,I’ll just ignore and use the block button.
I like this site because I get what I feel is a lot of good info and advice from it. I hate to see it going to the dogs because of a select few. I see no problem with some humor but the trash talking needs to stop. I’m not a prude by any means but I just don’t feel it’s contributing to this site.

Woodworking is what it’s about your right, that’s what brought me here.

I never thought I would ever block anyone. However, developments in last few days has prompted me to block one person already and maybe more shortly.

You know Rich, it’s not only about blocking, which existing members can do. It’s about the dozens and dozens of people who I use to tell about this site. If they come here as perspective members just to look around, I would be embarrassed beyond belief to be associated with recent events. And that has nothing to do with what I can and can’t click on. Nope, no more telling people about LJ’s until Martin rights this ship.

I’ve only been here a short time and have seen things degrade rapidly. I’m with everyone on keeping the focus on woodworking with a sense of humor mixed in….within reason.

Rich, I too have blocked one person who seems to have the maturity of a 12 year old.

I agree Howie, and have previously stated what you and others above have said. No need for it here, and I won’t contribute either.

The last few days are the worst I have seen here. Fortunately, I was out of town and didn’t see it all :-)

BTW, I think it might be time for Martin to demand a cleanup of language, pics and fight picking.

I agree, but since there is no woodworking here I have nothing more to say.
