I think it should be a rule that a yearly review of who you’ve blocked should be mandatory. On Jan 1 of each new year all blocks would automatically become unblocked unless you go in and “refresh” the block NLT Dec 31. Joe, you may want to start reviewing your blocks sometime in Nov. Jimc unblocked me and we seem to be getting along swimmingly. Things change. I’m betting that a lot of people that have me blocked have come to their senses and have just forgotten about the block. To start with I can’t understand why anyone would ever block me. Is it something I said? I don’t think so.

On the other hand those that get unblocked can request to be reblocked. Those that can’t handle the pressure that goes with trying to keep someone happy. Just block me at the beginning of the year because you’re probably going to disagree with something I say and block me anyway. Let’s get it over with now…

LJ’s should make block lists public … just like the Bud lists.

Who’s blocking who, who’s blocking me, who’s blocking you and who’s block list you’re on.

Good idea. Let’s make block lists public. Anyone else like DaN’s idea?

Just accept that it’s a clash of personalities. No biggie.

Anyway, I thought when it comes to friends v enemies, enemies won hands down?

Renners, there you go again changing your post. To answer your first post, yes there is a reason for everything. To answer your second post yes I prefer enemies…I just like to know who they are. I don’t think much about clash of personalities. They either fit mine or not. Poor them.

Renners, you take this site way to serious and read more into my posts than is necessary. I’m a very simple guy that likes to spout about nothing and everything. Unless I’m posting about wood (which I do every so often) don’t take what I say as anything but my current thought. They come and go like the wind…

Renners, one more thought. If a person’s objective in life is to do nothing but fit in and never upset the apple cart, then what a boring life. I respect someone like Joe far more than someone that doesn’t have the courage or conviction to say what they think. That I disagree with him on almost everything has nothing to do with my respect for him. I would much rather hear a personal point of view than a point of view that the person thinks will please everyone. Sure, you’ll be buddied a thousand times but who gives a shit. Too many folks just “want to get along” without saying what they truly think.

I wouldn’t block anybody, even though people have blocked me. I don’t know why people would feel compelled to block me, as I’m not typically a guy people would want to block, unlike DKV.

But, yeah, it’d be cool it I became unblocked. Then, I could go to them and see if I could actually DO something to get blocked again.

Maybe you were blocked for a reason, did you consider that?

there, is that better?

As you are so keen to point out, yes, I did change my post, simply because I had to go and collect my daughter from school and didn’t have time to elaborate on the above.

And now I have to go and spray a unit I’m making, if that’s ok with you.

Maybe you were blocked for a reason, did you consider that?

I think I have a pretty good idea why you would be blocked, but what do you think?
Why would anybody block you or consider you have nothing worthwhile to contribute to Lumberjocks?

I am only asking the question. Look within yourself.

That’s very good renners. At last a true answer. No more of that mealy mouth crap. I respect you for saying your thoughts. I had to pull it out of you but you did good.

I do not really care if I am blocked or not. I do not block at all as I want to hear if I am being an ass in my own threads. I am here to learn more about wood etc. I also show my wood creations and comment on other people’s work. In off-topic forum any thing goes. I give and take as I see fit. If I get blocked, so be it. I do think that blocking somebody is just a sign of insecurity.

Just accept the fact that some people don’t want anything to do with you. Move on, get past it and show us what your are building. Seems to me those are the folks you should be talking to anyway.

Dwain, right now I’m building raised panel doors for some cabinets. You may not believe it but I can do two things at once. Well, not really. Wood, forum, wood, forum…something like that.

Instead of blocking, I think it would be better if we had “hiding”. That way, if I thought someone was an idiot, I’d just put him on my hide list. He could still post all he wanted, including on threads started by me, but I wouldn’t have to see it.

I’d prefer that because we would all be in charge of minding our own business (controlling what we look at) as opposed to trying to control someone else’s behavior in where they can or can’t post.

Charlie, I can tell you don’t like the year end review thing.

If you hid who you don’t want to see and others interacted with the hidden person on your thread then you’d be missing out on the whole story.

Nice, Chuck. You just named the annual block review. Block Party it is. Now, if I could get Martin to agree…

Joe, are you out there? What do you think of the idea?

Jimc, what are your thoughts?

BTW, I know that Joe, HMike and Jonathon have me blocked. It’s difficult to ascertain who has me blocked. Can you guys that have me blocked come forward and tell me? That way I can make a case for getting unblocked…or not.
