I would love to join you Kevin just on principle,but sometimes I just can’t resist seeing what a title is about,but for the most part I can resit commenting. You have to keep in mind that for some time there was no Non-shop talk forum and people kept asking for it. So Martin was dammed if he did and dammed if he didn’t, have a non-shop talk forum that is.

Since you aren’t coming back to your thread you’ll never see this, but I rather enjoy watching the lunatic fringe go at one another.

In some ways it’s more entertaining than more questions about which tool to buy, or whether to ground a DC system. – lol

^Thanks, Shipwreck! I don’t get a lot done in there mostly because I just like being in there:) I go in there, turn on some music, fiddle with a few planes, have a seat, pick up a screw and examine it, lol.
My shop is hurting my woodworking:)

I do the same thing after work. I’ll go out and just sit and enjoy a little soft music. I recently bought some old Stanley’s that have kept me busy. The guys in the hand tools forum have given me some nice tips for the restoration.

Hey Bertha do you just examine 1 screw or do you have an assortment. Nice place to call home also.

Bigkev, You’ll miss the jokes ,pictures, and dogs if you never come here. Just be selective and when it starts to look ugly click backspace to a happier thread.

There ARE some GOOD Topics in Non Shop Talk. ONE of them is “How about another photo Thread” by Charlie. Some Outstanding Photos in there, it’s also VERY Popular.

My Solution? Absolute Control over my MOUSE! Not all that hard to do. On occassion I’ll even drop into the “Raving Lunatic” Posts just to see who’s come up with the most Hideous Comment recently.

So ….... ”Not even this one. Who will join me?” First of all .. Not Me! ....... Second …. If you’re NEVER coming back here again, how will you know who ”Joined You”????

We’ll see how long it takes you to come back and Post again. Sure you can come back, look and not Post ….no doubt.

Was there a particularly Personally Offensive Post or Other Valid Reason that made you decide to “Post” this rather …UHMM… UHHHH….. we’ll leave it at “Topic”....actually… “Tar And Brush” comes to mind…

Just had a look at your Home Page and went to see some of yourComments on NST. Couldn’t find them?? Strange.

Well! If it bothers you that much. YOU DEFINETELY should not go there!!

I posted this on that mean forum they started just to pick on me, even though I have no idea what I did. I’ll put it here, too, since that one magically disappeared some time last night.

What are you guys calling me an asshole for. I should report all of you to the site moderators. I’m gonna PM Martin right now and get this forum removed. This abuse has got to stop. I’m so mad right now I could just…
Oh wait, I am an asshole. Thank you for noticing. I guess I was born that way. I come from a long line of them, on both sides of my family. To tell the truth, I never was mad. I don’t actualy care who you vote for, what church you go to, who you sleep with, or what you think of me. I can get along with anybody. You have to go far out of your way to piss me off. On the other hand, If I see someone who gets mad when you don’t agree with them, I’ll say the exact opposite just to see the look on their face. It’s cheap entertainment. We used to sit around the card table at my Grandmother’s house. Aunts, uncles, cousins, playing canasta talking crap to each other. We are all a bunch of smartasses, even both of my grandmothers were. If someone actually got mad, or God forbid, cried out loud, It was open season and everyone jumped on, no mercy. We all developed very thick skin and an inate ability to push people’s buttons. How did I do? I think pretty good. I found this website a few months ago. I really enjoyed looking at the projects, going several hundred pages back in the archives. Some categories I looked all the way through. I saw lots of beautiful work from some very talented craftsmen, and a lot of great ideas on jigs and things that I’ve never even thought of. This is by far the best woodworking site that I have found, but I ran out of projects to look at. Hmmm, What’s this forum button? Generally, I never even look at forums and blogs an such, I got over that chat room crap years ago, but this might be interesting. I started reading all kinds of interesting stuff, about all sorts of different subjects, without clicking on off topic content. Then one day… Well, you all know when you read the off topic forums, there’s one name that kind of stands out. Over and over. Being the prick that I am. I started watching for him. I don’t even remember what the topic was, but I had to say something, only I wasn’t a member yet. I signed up but, by then, that thread had died and I left it alone. soonenough, though, here comes the IQ thread. I started out trying to have a reasonable, adult conversation, but you all know that is impossible. I’d rather tease him, anyway, that’s just how I get my rocks off. Like I said before, if I can make someone mad enough to run off crying, I am relentless. Especially if they keep asking for it, and it’s so easy with this one, I don’t even have to try. I apologize to everyone that I may have accidentally offended, pretty much any comments that I have made were for one purpose alone. I don’t remember making personal comments to anyone else, even when they got mad at me and called me names, because I find that just as funny. This wasn’t about any of you, I am truly sorry. After I got suspended for seven days, I snuck back in to play some more. That account got deleted and I never could get back into this one. Wow a challenge, I like that. I compiled all that crap I posted the other day, just like he does, copy and paste. I didn’t have to make any of that up. I had lots of really rude stuff saved up too. I tried to log back in for a couple of weeks, and quit trying, planning to sneak in on a borrowed computer, and start a shit storm. Those are fun to watch. I had actually forgotten about it and was just looking at projects, when I noticed I was looged in again. Oh, hell, here we go. When I posted the what’s wrong with LJ’s forum, I had already PM’d it to Martin. I fully planned to get kicked out for good, but I did want him to at least read it before he deleted it. It lasted much longer than I expected, and definitely served it’s purpose. When it was removed, and I didn’t get kicked out, I promised Martin that I would quit picking on him and not start anymore fights. As far as I’m concerned, it’s over. I apologize to all of you. Even Mike. We can even get along if you want to. I won’t start any more personal shit if you don’t.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.
