To all of you who sat by as Jorge and I engaged in a huge needless fight on several threads the other evening. I want to say I am sorry for causing you all distress. On many occasions I have taken the time to ask the moderators to remove his inflammatory remarks and slanderous statements. For the most part they have responded though the other night I had simply had enough. I was not going to take any more of his abuse. I have written things I regret to him that you all witnessed and for this I am sorry. Before you crucify me I only ask if some one kept provoking you how much would you take before you lost it. Only you know the answer. And so along with my apology I have a request the next time this type of thing happens and you see it do us all a favor and flag the post buy the person who is being inappropriate. If your being slandered or lied about walk away and talk to the powers that be. it will preserve order here. Again I am sorry for this display of childish behavior.

While I have no idea what transpired, it’s tough to apologize and admit when we’ve ‘snapped’.

We all have buttons that can get pushed. And while the person who pushed the button may have done so on purpose, he/she does not always know how much dynamite (aka baggage) we have behind the button. What might be a 2/10 for some, may trigger a 10/10 for others. This I know unfortunately from experience….

Good for you for apologizing.

Well done Dude, it takes a Man NOT his pants to take responsibility and apologize.

As far as am concerned, it never happened.

Apology acknowledged but not necessary except for yourself, as a statement of remorse allows one to promote closure and move on.

Opinions are like Shop Brooms, we all have them, but once the floor is clean it matters not if you pushed or pulled your broom.

Best regards to you. – Len

Hi Lance,

I missed the whole thing…

Sounds like you’ve fixed things up very nicely…


Good job!

Ah no, it’s not over is it? These kiddie school-yard fights are hilarious. Don’t worry, you’ll be best

I saw you guys are planning a box making challenge, instead you should have a boxing challenge. Lol
I am just joking. I appreciate that you apologized for your part in this argument. Lance if you put the time and effort spent arguing with Jorge in your shop you’d have a lot more to show for it and you’d probably feel a lot better about yourself.

Keep it cool it’s not fair on others if we see fighting here which nobody wants. You should however have a way out without resorting to losing your tempers either of you.
And no one should be so insulted.MY 3 cents worth have fun stay here with your fellow jocks and keep the peace. Alistair

No fears here Lance. I am of the opinion that the true test of character is not in constantly moving forward as much as a person developing the ability to apply reason within one’s self and change their course of action for the better. While it is unnecessary for me to accept your apology (as you had not offended me) I do offer my commendation for your demonstration of character here.

It’s the f-ing internet. Who gives a crap what someone else thinks. Turn of your computer and walk away.

Let’s see more woodworking related forum topics and not this “off topic” crap. Pathetic….
I missed it all. I am happy about that.

Chuck, if you want to see less off topic crap as you put it, then jimmy up the 58,000 other LJs to post something else.

Well done Lance, I never read or was a part of what you are talking about but recognizing your mistakes and apologizing for them show that you really are “the dude”.
(I personally much prefer Lance).

I remember “horizontal mike” doing something similar a while ago.
It is very good and very encouraging to see such turns of behaviors.
Sometime I gave up on my fellow living being just a bit too fast.
It is very good to be a lumberjock with you guys.
