Bert -
The owner apparently doesn’t agree with your idea about the purpose of this site. Do you get the idea that it’s his decision to make and not yours? We’re all guests here. Would you go to some one’s home and bitch and moan about the way the run their household? Isn’t this site a similar thing?

“This site should only be about woodworking” is a lament that’s been going on for several months and Martin hasn’t made any changes – as is his right as the owner. He has at least taken steps to make non-shop threads somewhat inconspicuous (other sites don’t even do that much), but that doesn’t seem to satisfy those of you who want him to run it your way. I must confess to being completely mystified by people who take deliberate action to get to a place for the sole purpose of complaining about its existence.

Why can’t you use this site like the rest of us – participate in what interests us and ignore what doesn’t?

As I said earlier, if you find this site intolerable, start one of your own and run it however you want. Who knows, you may even attract some of the “many” who have left LJ’s.
