My thread was appropriately posted in Skill Share. It was about not giving people the wrong information on how to do things. That is skill sharing! No flames, fights, arguments, or problems, please leave them alone.

Agreed. It was a fun thread that was harming no one. I was kind of shocked it got shut down.

papadan, start a new one here and I’ll join in. I only did the follow-on as a tribute, but don’t want to hijack your masterpiece. Either way, I’m good with it.

Yes, it was a good thread for many.

Yes, it belonged in the Coffee Lounge….

It was sad to see that thread closed, I agree with Rich. Harmless fun.

I think it was in the right forum, but I can certainly understand how such a thread could be misconstrued as belonging elsewhere.

It was a good thread, no one got their panties in a bunch. I’m scratching my head why it was closed.

It was a good thread, but I agree with Cricket that the forum was wrong. I didn’t see it’s purpose as providing any specific wood working skill. Though, I do not understand why it was closed vs. being moved to the Coffee lounge forum.

To quote Cricket “I am not a fan of threads that are started in order to tell people how and when to respond.” I can sort of agree with this. No one but the moderators should be infringing on our freedom of speech. I mean does papadan really have a right to tell anyone here what they can and can’t do? He could have got his message across in a different manner than issuing an order.

I can’t infringe on anyones freedom of speech, I’m at home with my own computer. I never issued any orders, just gave my opinion as to what people should and shouldn’t do in answering questions. I still say it should have been in Skill Share forum because that is where the offences occur.

Woodworking Skill Share Forum
Your woodworking skills are displayed for several lifetimes in each project. Have you had to compromise your project because you didn’t know how to proceed? Relax, we all have, welcome to a Woodworking Forum that allows you to seek and find essential information from others to accomplish what your heart really had in mind.

^^^ This is what we want!

Don t give advice on subjects you have no personal experience on! Just because Joe Blow said so, is not experienced knowledge. Too damn many posting their “opinions” without any knowledge of the subject.

- papadan
This is what I’m asking for, the RIGHT information!

I am not a fan of threads that are started in order to tell people how and when to respond, but this thread belongs in our off topic section.

So you don’t mind if people tell you the wrong thing to do!

When I ask a question, I am really hoping someone with experience will answer and help me out. When I answer a question, it is with information I know to be correct because of my own experiences. I don’t answer questions I am not sure of the answer. This whole thing is about SKILL SHARING!

You can’t fight city hall. Cricket has a job to do and she uses her own judgment as to what’s correct for LJs and it’s owners, so you may disagree but it’s her call.

What I never understood is why threads in the wrong forum re closed instead of simply moved. If it’s in the wrong forum, move it to the right forum.
