I think if you’ve been on this site for any length of time you realize that what I say on this site is mostly tongue-in-cheek, subtle humor. Sometimes it’s so subtle people think I’m serious and go and get all upset and hyper.

I agree this is a woodworking site first and foremost. However, it should also be a site where you can come and have a bit of fun. I don’t think any of my less than serious posts have hurt feelings and if any of them have then I say to them that are offended to get over it and get a sense of life. Some folks are just to caught up in their selves and too quick to respond. Most folks that read my posts and see that DKV is the poster understand that it is typically for fun, and yes I admit to catch some of the “too serious” off guard.

I’m going to continue to have fun and post threads that are probably not the norm. Have fun with me and understand that you usually can’t take me too seriously. I can’t believe I just said that.

I enjoy seeing that pink avatar on a thread. One way or another, it is about to get interesting.

Be nice to people DKV!

People do get worked up to quickly though. It seems that many threads become defensive too quickly. Sometimes I am afraid to answer a question honestly b/c people will knock you down for it.

Early in that closed thread someone said you were just kidding and I said something to the same effect a couple times but to no avail.

I think many of them really knew it was a joke but they just want an excuse to be cranky old duffs. For the other ones that just couldn’t figure it out. LOL

Could it be we just don’t find it funny?

It was funny though when a poster quoted you from your early posts asking for help and hoping you could provide it someday. Your hypocritical squirming was funny.

Remember Readers Digest, “laughter is the best medicine”. Well that’s true. People without a sense of humor or people who can’t laugh at themselves now and again are doomed to a very mundane life.

The underlying problem is that you change your icon too often. I think there should be a charge for that. It shows a lack of commitment.

Where I work, there is a constant barrage of sarcastic humor. Do I roll my eyes at some of the posts, yes. Am I guilty of the same type humor sometimes, yes. Some folks would be mad if their ice cream was cold.

I agree with Chuck. Quit changing your icon so much. I seriously can’t take you seriously when you do that. Or seriously can’t not take you seriously or something. Seriously.

You should shave your head and put a Mike Tyson like tattoo on your face,then take a picture and use it as your avatar, although I liked the one with the Sombrero and your two thumbs up, don’t tell me that wasn’t you now.

I don’t have anything to say. Well, except that I am a sex symbol and you are not. And one other thing,... but I forgot what it was.
