In a recent thread I posted my opinion on a subject and the OP blocked me for it. Not that I really care but I am curious to see how many people think that what I posted is offensive in some way’

This is my post.

“I don’t think Stickley did anything wrong or unethical . Do you really think companies should hand out proprietary information to any Tom, Dick, and Harry that wants to know their formulation and process they developed on their time and money?

Every try to get a famous chef to give up their secret recipe?”

What do you think?

I think posting this is a waste of time!
I don’t see what your going to get out of this post? Posts don’t have to offensive to get blocked.

He obviously only wants to hear from people that agree with him. I think he is naive for even thinking they would tell him, and then ridicules for slamming them when they didn’t. Some people!

Skin up and move on is what I would do.

Sorry to say you will find that if you are not a part of the “in crowd” or one of the “gods” they think hung the moon, you are S.O.L. I have said before that this place is about the best comedy on the internet.

It may have been considered a bit “confrontational” rather than just an opposing view , (posts #4, 8 and 9 were saying the same thing ), but your post was not offensive.

Your post was not offensive. I had made similar observations on that thread and I too was blocked…

Basically EVERYONE that didn’t agree with the OP in that thread was blocked.

While I’m not running a warm bath… it was amusing to see the follow-up posts about what a great discussion thread he had going, not knowing that half the folks that commented were now blocked.

Funny – that the OP was tagged “Humor”

I am considered the “Old Curmudgeon” around here. I don’t give a rat’s patootie what anyone thinks of me or my thought. That is why this is a forum that is mostly open and not one that restricts all comments that don’t agree with the management.

Without actually being in on the convo with the Co there can be a big difference between, “We’re sorry sir but that info is proprietary covered by patent and not available to the public” And some snarky response to a low life sponge. The OP claimed to inform them of the restoration project. So yes they’re not obligated to cough up their current formula, but what about the original formula from 1905? What possible reasons to withhold it outside of, “Sorry we don’t have the original formula, we lost it”, or gloating spite.

You’re AlaskaGuy yeah! Alaskans are tough walk it off you’ll live.

For those who think I need to skin up or walk it off. You have it wrong. The real purpose of this post is to tell Jerry what I think when he can’t shut me up by blocking me.

I think Jerry’s a wimp that probably runs away from life’s problems some way or another in this case by blocking what he doesn’t want to hear. If you have a difference of opinion don’t run away and hide behind a button on a computer screen.

That being said, I have never block a single person on any forum and I never will.

Now I can only hope Jerry’s sees the thread and read it.

Never be confrontational or opinionated. I’ve been blocked a few times. Big boys don’t block.

From what I read he unblocked everybody and frankly you are confrontational. Or am I misreading the contracted statement below because there’re no smiley faces indicating whimsy?

Nothing on any site is worth getting your panties in a knot over. When they offpiss you it just means that you let them take control of your emotions.
