Damn…I just noticed that Rob (socalwood) is no longer on my friends list. Then I read that he asked Martin to remove him from the website. What a shame that is! Rob is truly a nice guy and one of the few people I spoke via PM to.

Who knows why he pulled out?

He was frustrated by some of rude and crude postings and felt he couldn’t put up with it anymore. At least that the way I interpreted his post to Martin to be removed. Too bad, I’ll miss him, but he acted on his principles.

It does suck that they are leaving just because a few made a mess of things, I guess one bad apple really does spoil all the fun.

Oh well, I am here and I will start posting more and learning a lot more than I have found on other sites.

Keep up the good work Martin!!!

Yeah people are leaving becuase their are to many whiners on this website that have nothing better to do then complain about people.

”Dang it. People are leaving and I just got here.”

Then that means people are coming, too :-)

A commercial business has too much to loose being associated with what has transpired here in the last couple of months. They need to make the best possible presentation, especially in this economy. He probably felt he could no longer risk offending any potential customers who might see his business here. Women make most of the decisions about home decor. I imagine that is a big part of his wood business. One potential customer being disgusted by what she saw here is Long Yankee Green out his pocket.

Actually, though I am not at liberty to speak for Rob, he was/is my friend. I got the impression that it was not the “rules” of Lumberjocks that frustrated Socal, but rather the lack of common courtesy; including “misrepresentation of facts” and “mischaracterization of people/members. ” He will of course be missed. PS It might behelpful ant this junture to know that Rob contacted me before the Coffee Lounge was closed and said he would be leaving L/Js.

I’m indeed saddened by our loss. Rob was a super nice guy and a jack of all talents in the woodworking world. Rob: if you’re somehow viewing this please shoot me an email. shovelhead@pbtcomm.net

Please don’t infer that Rob left L/J over pics. I didn’t mean to give that impression.

I certainly hope the nastiness of the last few weeks is behind us. This has been a great site and I, for one, want it to continue to be a great site. Martin should keep a close eye on it for a while.
