I was told that at least 40 LJ’s have left the site or greatly reduced their use of the site because of me. That is totally unbelievable and hard to take. 39 I can handle. 40 is a whole new decade of numbers that leaves me feeling guilty for having been the cause of so many being deprived of the joys of this woodworking site. I need at least one of you to come back so I can feel good about myself again.

I wouldn’t patronize yourself by thinking 40 members left here because of you. I think you have had some very interesting and entertaining posts here.

Pretty obvious that at times you attempted to encite some folks but I can’t imagine anyone having sleepless nights over it ! JB

Hypothetically, if a member were contributing less than zero, and he/she left, wouldn’t that be like adding a member back?

40 robot signed-up members leaving LJ is no biggie.

Did a quick count of my current block list and activity level of its members. Of the 35 left on my list only 10 have any activity w/n the past 90 days.

Only 3 of the 10 have any activity w/n the past month.

This tell me the trolls, whiners and cry-babies have mostly moved along to haunt other forums … or have
f…ed-off-n-died.

Go tell ‘em to pee up a rope. For all those who departed, they couldn’t handle anything other than their ultra narrow mindedness.

What’s going on here…???? I just checked my block list and all of them have not posted in over a year!!!
...all three of them. :) And I can’t even remember why they were blocked. LOL

Hey.. can I take my count to 7?

Maybe the forty left because Lumberjocks is just not as vibrant as it used to be.

Post 22 of the below thread would work for me. The word “vibrant” in this thread and the below thread say it all. We seem to be a very closeminded group of guys. Myself and a few others not included. Oh, and I really hate the way camel owners are treated on this site.

Maybe they just didn’t like it that you changed your avatar.

You’ve never struck me as the kinda person who is concerned about such things. Why change now?
