I am thinking, I have had it with this site and want out… How do I do it; or is this another Facebook like site that once you get in, good luck getting out? Thanks in advance for any help.

Just stop posting or reading the site and you are done. If you want your posts deleted just send a message to MsDebbieP and she can probably assist you.

On a selfish note I would hope that you would leave your posts here once you leave because they may contain just that piece of information someone is looking for or they may look at your projects and be inspired strive to improve their own working skills. If all the good material is removed then the spammers and hackers win by stifling another great site.

I wish you success in finding a site that suits your skills and abilities and perhaps you could let us know where you go in case others would like to try out the new site as well.

mrjinx007 I wouldn’t let this issue with the site changes and people posting opinions be a bother, sleep on it for a few days ya know? Myself I find it amusing the back and forth with the forum jousting. I am waiting for someone to blame it on Obamacare so I can choke on my vodka laughing about it. At the end of the day it don’t mean nothing, it could be worse. Look at a1Jim, out of nowhere DKV made him the LJ’s Grand Poompa I bet he never saw that one coming?

Do you have seven goats to sacrifice? If not, you won’t even get started on The Sacred Removal Ritual.

Anyone remember that guy who went postal and started posting stuff like “F@£& YOU YOU BUNCH OFF M&^%$@F@£$%^S!!!
He got wiped within a matter of minutes. Not the most courteous of exit strategies, but effective.

I left for 6 months after some OWS asshole attacked me when I tried to defend Gibson …funny thing is, I was right. but he viciously laid in to me and all I could do was walk away or return fire and get just as ugly as he was.

That’s what I get for entering a political conversation in the coffee lounge.
It’s a tough crowd in there. but it’s not what LJ is about.

I’m no saint. I probably come off as a bit of a know it all at times and I’m not afraid of speaking my mind. Bad mouth my shop dog or call me stupid because of the tools I choose and I will reply.

Learn to use that block button. It’s like your own personal revenge weapon ….Oh Yea! POW! Your BLOCKED! Ha!

I’m glad I didn’t leave in the end. too much time spent building my profile to throw it all away over a bad moment. Instead, I had the vicious comments erased.

Mrs. Debbie will make you do a time out anyway before erasing your profile.

So, Take a break, Go have a beer with your buds and have one on us.

Thanks Mark Shymanski and woodbutcherbynight. I am in google+ communities they have several woodworking communities that anyone can join. Will certainly heed your advice. The Lumberjock formerly known as renners, just can’t do that, in fact it is because of the increase in people who appear to enjoy being abusive or sarcastic like DKV that I decided I didn’t belong here. I am sure this is something that will continue to get worse as the members of this site continue to grow.

I used to be a member of 4-5 car detailing forums a few years back but slowly lost interest and stopped posting in them and eventually deleted them from my favorite list and that was it ,they did send me a few general messages that all members would get but I unsubscribed from them too.

My point is if you have lost interest in woodworking ,then it is understandable ,it boils down to where you with your character feel most at ease so you can let your your guards down .a few members may rub you the wrong way anywhere you go.

I’ve had issues with other members ,but If l Left then they win. Just like real life you have to ignore those people who posts you disagree with and find abrasive,some folks like to start fights and others just don’t no what manners and kindness are all about,to have those kind of people dictate what you do or don’t do seems wrong to me. If you enjoy other parts of LJs just enjoy them and block people who are abrasive on your own threads.

There is a lot of bad vibes going around on this site. I try to give some good advise well as good as I got. Look at some projects and get advice. Then I get caught up in the Site bashing, then I have to scroll through my own Babble.
Thanks for reminding me this is a great site and to scroll past the Babble.

I am just like a1Jim – had issues, and numerous LJs have had issues with me. As for me, I enjoy the tit-for-tat exchange of dialog here. Words are just words, not weapons of destruction, even if some individuals think they are. Some us do carry the subject way to long, but in the end we go our separate ways and forget about it.

It seems to me that if you simply stop coming to the site, you are as good as removed. As for myself, though I am somewhat annoyed by some of the changes and glitches since the site was bought out, I find that there are so many projects to admire and be inspired by that I will not be going anywhere. This is still my favorite online woodworking resource. The forums have yielded me some great advice as well.

Thanks folks,
I did’t know about the nuclear option of blocking idiots. I love the site but hate watching people get bashed. I have cooled off and know I have an options to block off people I don’t want to associate with. Thanks a lot.
