Remember your thread Nasty and rude replies to posts? You implied that the Far Left was a factor. Mike’s a lefty, so he flipped out. Scan back through your thread and you’ll see.

He blocked me months ago. It hasn’t affected my life whatsoever.

I would guess only Mike knows.I’ve been blocked before and didn’t know why so all you can do is move on.

Yeah, don’t sweat it. A couple people have blocked me as well, my guess is that they’re also liberal wackjobs.

Seriously though, some people are more interested in showing off in a sideways kind of way, more than actual woodworking. Logical discussion often eludes them- that’s not what they’re really interested in.

Same here.. he was complaining about some non-LJ related ads that were showing up on the site, and I pointed out that if he cleared all the cookies from his browser, he would get all sorts of weird ads. Apparently, he took offense to that, called me a troll, and blocked me. No big deal.. it’s his loss, not mine :)

Cheers,
Brad

LOL, I remember that. He likes to call me Dick. I guess he thinks it hurts my feelings or something.

More than a few of us Lefties here on LJ’s, but admititley politics isn’t what I come here here for. I’ll block anyone yapping politics to me here from any side. Not worth my time or yours.

Thread moved to Coffee Lounge.

We do not use the forum to “call out” other members. Blocking is a personal decision and does not need to be explained. It just is what it is.

That being said, blocking the admin (me) will result in the account being locked and banned.

This thread is now closed.
