I went against one of my own golden rules tonight. I let myself be baited into flaming with someone. Thank you to all the good folk who have shared thier knowledge with me.

Fair winds and following seas to everyone!

I post this with absolutely no pleasure…...

Martin ? Nathan ?? You really think quantity is more valuable than quality ?

I don’t, but … that’s just me.

You’re leaving because you had a disagreement with someone? If everyone who had a disagreement with him left the site, then, well, there’d be like three people remaining. Seems like a trivial reason to me. Of course, you can do whatever you want.

I don’t understand why folks leave when they do battle with anyone , Doesn’t that mean the person you fought with wins? You’ve been here 4 years plus ,just stick around and put him on your block list and ignore him on other folks post. I try not to tell others what to say or post anymore because their going to do what their going to do.
Any flame wars I’ve been in just made me feel bad and made LJs look bad too. Best wishes what ever you do.

Jim = +100,000

Come on guys, just get it straight. You want to get me personally and nearly all of you are failing to even read my posts in your haste to attack. Geez… Think folks! Jim is correct! If I upset you SO MUCH, then just don’t click, blockme , etc. BUT DON’T FIRE FROM THE HIP AND RESPOND WITHOUT HAVING READ WHAT I POSTED. It only shows your own lack of preparation…

good bad or ugly
mike has a point

just this morning
is saw a project posted

the man built his project
after buying a load of wood
it clearly stated that he had 100 bdf
left over

so along comes another and gushes praise and comments
then asks if there was any wood left

it makes me think that some people
just like reading their own words

and don’t bother to read the actual post

‘what kind of wood
is that walnut box
made of’ ?

I have come to realize that some folks start these controversial threads just for entertainment and that’s the way I take them. H-Mike, I really enjoy your astronomy blog.

My 2ยข

I don’t usually respond to any of this, but my take on it is not to block anybody for anything but blatant over to top threats on ones safety. If you disagree with the LJ and believe they’re a dipstick, Don’t push the button on your screen. Is that so hard?

Hey Rpalm,
Thanks, reallly need to do more on the astronomy side, but have not gotten around to it. Thank for the kick in the butt, astronomy wise. all that other stuff,... I just wish folks would at least ‘research’ what they want to say in response to what ever I said on LJs. If they shoot from the hip, it becomes way too obvious.

BTW,I am NOT always right/correct. It is that so many folks don’t even try to justify their positions that they do not even use complete sentences (MARK this, as it will attract those who want to prove me wrong at ANYTHING).

ShipWreck, a lot of use have fallen for that bait. live learn, block and move on.

NOT always right/correct….so true
justify their positions ….. don’t need to, its a woodworking site, not a political forum.
use complete sentences …. see comment about woodworking site.

titebond is a good glue, no justification, just a statement.
rosewood totes are cool, no justification provided
love to woodwork, you can complete the sentence.

Darrell, That’s why you’re my buddy : we think alike. It used to be called common sense but now I think it is uncommon.
