I was on tonight and saw a forum/blog topic about someone who had a problem. They screwed up a project and was looking for ideas to fix it. I was just about to write him/her a pretty solid idea that no one else had mentioned that I think would have worked great – unfortunately I am blocked by this individual, so I couldnt.

The only reason I bring this up is because it truly is his loss, and I would have loved to help him/her – I dont even know why I am blocked? Dont think I’ve ever commented on any of his/her threads, or have had a single conversation with him/her ever.

Anyways…NOT trying to start a big discussion, or a fight/debate or anything else. so PLEASE dont start one on this thread. If one does start- Martin please delete the thread. I just thought I’d suggest that maybe before jumping right to the block feature you should try to patch things up, and see if the block wouldnt of had to be used (I understand some cases, a block is needed – but not all) because you never know where some useful ideas/information might come from. I really had some useful ideas for him. I dont know why i was blocked…his/her loss i guess, but I wish I could know – cause then I’d apologize, and help him/her out.

Anyways! TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY I HAD TO SCRAPE ICE FROM MY CAR WINDOWS AT 6AM - I HATE WINTER!

Florida is the highest paying state for both chiropractors AND nurse practitioners (my future wife) – PLUS no winter…..yeah we might be heading there.

Hey dakremer, not sure who or why you were blocked, but I can say even though I have not blocked anyone the steps that Martin has taken to keep this site civil have worked. No one can deny the changes in the past two or three weeks have helped. Like with anything in this world there are consequences, and if this person misses your help it’s their choice. And don’t feel bad I had to scrape ice Sunday morning here.

I agree with you Dakremer. Blocking someone when emotions run high or for a misunderstanding can have a negative effect. It also deprives others from learning from others comments on a topic as well.

you lucky son of a….. :) I’ve lived in Iowa my whole life, and i’ve hated winter…my whole life. Love the state….hate the weather! Now I just have to decide what I’d rather have…...earthquakes or hurricanes…..humidity or dry heat…..tough choices! But as long as cold, snowy, icy winters isnt a choice – i’m down. :)

Blocking…well, I haven’t yet, but came close awhile back. I can certainly take care of myself in person, and the internet is pretty good on bullies- I can really take care of them, as if it mattered in an e-tough environment.

Then again, it’s one of those things where someone is just such a puling whiner that I just don’t want to see it. Then would be a good time to block. But I haven’t done that here, either.

dak: my fatherinlaw is moving to Florida from Iowa next week, after 33 years. Frankly, I’ve lived in a lot of states (8)including Nevada and “Cleveland”(g) and I like Florida. It’s nice to go out to my shop at 2 in the morning in my shirtsleeves.

Dakrema,
Ever thought about moving to another country where the winters are very, very mild (if any) and the language is very similar to what you already speak?
Forget Florida, the mosquito infested, Spanish speaking, old folks rest haven and go for a real man’s destination where everything is great——Texas.
Here we do have candles around at Christmas, and if a cold wind norther blows in, we light them.
