The list is getting bigger.
First there was religion, then along came politics. Today gays are no longer welcome, if I understand the pulling of Deek’s post about a prostitute getting shot in texas. We can have Emma, the twisted 2×4 but not have Eric.

Wrong interpretation.

did you read the comments posted? There was a LOT of disrespect and inappropriate language being thrown around and it was quickly going down hill. Not acceptable.

Thanks madts….though this is still very welcoming site. Ms Debbie is correct and right to do so…. and at least once a year I have to apologize for a disruption.. guilty. Very very few people have had an issue with me… and almost all of them have left this site over the years. Proving that woodworking is more important than anything else.. I love what I do and love this site. I contribute with my heart and soul, and believe I have the pudding proof that I am a woodworker above most anything else. I understand that being gay can be seen as nothing to do with woodworking, but is has everything to do with me and why I do woodworking, who my clients are, and what drives my passion to make beautiful things in a world where there is so much callous ugly against me. What always hurts is to read the comments of others about wives and husbands, but I can not without earning a gay bashing and being accused of playing gay politics. It hurts because this is what I am and I just want to belong… admitting to being gay is NOT political… it is sharing who I am with other woodworkers. LumberJocks has proven to me over and over that it is a welcoming site. Thanks and I am sorry for the discord.

a woodworker is a woodworker—from toddlers to octogenarians and belong, from beginners to master craftsman – and LumberJocks is for ALL woodworkers around the world.
but we do ask that you “play nice”.

Deb: I think that we all try to play nice, but sometimes we are just kids and get out hold. That does not means that we are not having fun. In fact we are.
