My recent behavior has been out of line on here. I would like to formally apologize to each and every one of you whom I have offended. I am posting this out of my own will and have not been influenced nor contacted by any of the forum admin/moderators which would lead me to write this.
Today I received a message from a fellow LJ. I made a comment on a project of his a few days ago that was entirely sarcastic and not meant to offend but I can see how it did. He responded with:
”Scootles, Good catch! I guess I should have been a little clearer all the joinery was completed using the Festool Domino. The other tools used were a table saw, miter saw, router my dust collector oh and I believe that i also used my random orbit sander and some sandpaper. I think that is everything…
oh and some glue.
Hope that helps.
I took a look at your profile to see some of your projects for inspiration but alas there are none. Perhaps it would help to not just comment on things but to actually post some finished projects. To let folks see that you are not just a witty fellow that posts comments but doesn’t actually build anything.
With all due respect.
I did not respond. I’m not sure why. I may have been busy, sometimes I read these posts on my cell phone and I find it a pain in the ass responding sometimes from there.
Today, I received another message from him. As far as I know it was for no reason. However, any number of my horrible posts could have enraged him to do so. He said:
SUBJECT: you are useless
“you are moron who only does negative posts you have no projects of your own posted and i imagine that you do not even own any tools or do any working. you sir SICKEN ME”
My response is not only for him, but for the entire LJ community.
”I appreciate your input. I am honored that you went out of your way to express your feelings for me.
I do not have any projects listed because I do not have any that I deem worthy. However, since you have brought this up. I will make it a point to put up pictures of some of my work before the day is over. Please do take a look at it. I love the Mission style office furniture you made. It is very simple, and elegant at the same time. I look forward to seeing more from you.
In response to my negativity, you are correct. It seems that most of my posts are negative. Not just on this forum, but on others as well. After my recent outburst on here I have set a goal to maintain my composure while responding to posts and if I don’t have anything nice to say, I will not say anything at all.
I am a ‘sarcastic wiseass’ at heart. Unfortunately, not many people understand that about me and become easily offended. I also voice my opinions VERY strongly. I will try to refrain from that in the future. Thank you for pointing out that I have been out of line.
Please forgive me.
I hope the people who I have offended can forgive me. If you can’t, I completely understand and hold nothing against that.
