Topic tags/keywords: off-topic content posts lumber jocks woodworking

Lately there has been much concern about all the bashing and ill feelings about posts, reactions, and blocking in regards to “Off-topic content” about politics, religion, etc…
I am amazed at all the opinions, analysts, and arm chair psychologists that there are out there. :)

I have a solution…....

Everybody who posts these sensitive topics needs to quit. Everbody else…quit reading them and responding to them.

!!!!! News Flash !!!!


Sure, everybody has the right to post whatever they want, but why would you want to? If you are here for anything other than woodworking then, hey, you are in the wrong place.

I remember the days of this being an woodworking site and that’s all.

Let’s go back to the way this site was intended for use. Vent your frustrations with everything outside of woodworking, outside of Lumber Jocks. You’ll be amazed how things will change and we’ll once again be a bunch of happy, contributing woodworkers.
But, hey….I am just being logical. Let’s get back to woodworking!

good point WWScott but it’s been said before and no such luck. I hope it works but don’t count on it.

Chill guys. This is the dog-days of summer and it is very hot out there. Also it is an election year with major issues. Hopefully after Nov. we will kiss and make up, and all will get back to normal. If not I will open up a site called “Political jocks”. Maybe at that site we can discuss wood and such in the “off-topic” section.
