Grizzman don’t beat yourself up about it. Normally someone (namely me ;-) would have attacked your post. That’s why you shouldn’t post controversial comments. The coffee lounge is set up to discuss non woodworking things, such as the death of celebrities, humor, etc. Post what you like, but don’t post politics and religion, or other controversial conversation. It’s pretty simple really. Personally I think most people attack that sort of thing simply to cause a controversy, not because they care about the subject matter. I used to do that commonly, but decided to try to ignore the negativity it brings. Now I try to do the humor or simply don’t post. It’s like quitting drinking or smoking. The temptation is there and it’s very difficult to ignore. LOL.

Anyhow, I refrained from posting on your thread and am proud of myself. LOL. However, I did ask Martin that it be removed simply because there really shouldn’t be exceptions to the rule. If we let one get by, they should all get by.

Anyhow, it looks like you’ve figured it out. Don’t stop posting because of it.

Hey Grizz
Ok there are rules an I have even posted a blog about sticking to woodworking but I did not find you post over the top. I believe in god and I’m grateful for all god has given me an mine . But this is a woodworking forum so that’s what the focus should be. I think you a cool guy and have wonderful projects and just saying what you feel should not blow any ones gasket. So don’t feel like you have committed the ultimate sin . It’s just a little mishap so keep on keeping on. the truth be told probably a large amount of members agree with you wholeheartedly. so keep you projects coming your part of the LJs family and this is were you belong.
Just keep on grizzing bud. Jim

Continue to post. That what this site is for. Just be respectful of others. If you want to talk about woodworking related topics this is the place. The coffee lounge is for non woodworking topics. As long as you follow the posting rules you will be fine.

How can comments of a religious nature in a woodworking site be considered controversial? After all, would a woodworking comment be controversial in a religious website?
Oh, yeah, ummm, how about those who protest intolerance by practicing intolerance themselves? Those are the ones we gotta be wary of. Running to the moderator for every little thing is just plain wrong. Rock on, grizzman!!

poopiekat, your question is controversial, and I think you just want to cause a rift. The rules are here to keep everything controlled and enjoyable. If you bring in beliefs that someone else doesn’t agree with it becomes an argument, thus controversial.

This is a woodworking site, and is to be enjoyed. If you want to preach there’s sites geared for that, or you can simply go to church. Rules are rules. Do you break the law? If you follow the rules off the internet, follow the rules on it. It’s not even about the belief and the differences between people. It’s the rules. Why have rules if there are going to be exceptions? That’s why people go to the moderator poopiehead. Because if Grizzman can post a religious topic and get away with breaking the rule, then I can post what ever the hell I want too. Don’t make me fall off the wagon….........lol

No offense taken here, even though I’m not the religious sort.

I personally have no problem with people posting political or religious views in the coffee lounge, but some folks can’t disagree without getting disagreeable. I guess that is why the posting rules say not to do it.

Normally someone (namely me ;-) would have attacked your post Yet you give yourself the right to be ‘controversial’.
Now I try to do the humor or simply don’t post Your words…now walk the walk, please.
That’s why people go to the moderator poopiehead. Calling me names now? How utterly childish!

Political correctness is a crutch. If you have a belief, and are brave enought to state it, then you are ahead of the pack. Why must all things be turned into arguments. Never fear the opinions of another person for they are only that, an opinion. Formulate your thoughts, express them intelligently and debate the topic. Leave emotional charge at the door.
