Paul
Thanks for your kind words.
That’s crazy isn’t it I can’t believe I have that many post. I use to spend 2-3hrs a day on Ljs and then go to the shop. I use to comment on every project to help support all the folks, but It started to be more like a job, so now I still comment on projects but not all of them.

Thanks for the nice input John
Thanks Jimbo I guess the closest I can get to having hit the road is what I ve already done, is block em.

Why “block” when you can simply ignore their messages? In the “blog” world (not so much here because I m not a regular) I find it s always nice to see what is going on…then wait for the perfect opportunity to use the nail gun.

Why not block? If you don’t want their “input”, then block them.

Personal preference I guess. I find it more entertaining to let the little kids show their immaturity for all the world to see. I’ve often wondered what message boards would be like if people had to use their real names.

Rob I guess that was my initial thought when Teejk asked why.

Teejk2
I guess I differ with you about people behaving badly being entertaining,but it certainly does show their immaturity.
In my option It may stop some of them but there would still be a percentage of pot stirrers that would still try and cause trouble even with their real name.

I suspect in reality you wouldn’t have someone over to the house after they acted like a child and interjected inappropriately into conversations. You would ask them to leave. You are blocking them from bothering you and your guests.

Truth of the matter is that they wouldn’t come to my house if they acted as children prior to any invitation…if they somehow managed to get beyond the screening process the other attendees would take care of the situation and I would simply sit back and laugh as the offending parties left on their own. Now I do have to ask why we are having this discussion on a woodworking web-site? Seems to me that this should be a relatively “hate-free” board.

It should be hate free and respectful but sometimes it isn’t, that is sort of what this particular thread is about.

Seems that every board draws a few people that just can’t be civil. Sad but true made worse by the ability to hide behind an alias.

Jim I agree with your post. I think some people just don’t have the tact to convey their opinions without offending some one. If I disagree I just say “in my experience…” as opposed to “I’m telling you this is how it is and if you don’t listen to me you are stupid…”. If someone chooses not to consider my opinion or advice then no big deal. Furthermore, this medium for communication does not allow us to ascertain the context of every query.

I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas! I look forward to another year on LJs!

I don’t usually visit this side of the forums for that exact reason. Glad I did today. Great post.

Merry Christmas to you, Jim. And too all the rest of you. Be safe while enjoying the holiday.

Haters just hate. Not worth the time of day. I joined LJ’s and have found it to be a great resource. I am just getting into the game of seriously exploring woodworking and the wealth of knowledge that has been shared, in my opinion, has been so freely given it blows me away.
I have run across a lot of a-holes in my life but I don’t let them get to me any more. I simply tell them “I would have to value your opinion before it could bother me”.
I certainly hope you do not allow these fools to keep you from sharing. I have seen many of your posts and enjoyed them along with viewing some of your projects. Fight the good fight and stay on the high road. Leave the trolls under the bridge where they belong!
My PHD is in Piled High and Deep!

Merry Christmas!

Unfortunately the relative anonymity of these types of forums gives some people the courage to act like idiots. Lumberjocks along with many other woodworking sites are a great resource for so many of us to share our ideas, successes and failures…don’t let a few irresponsible fools ruin it for you.
Thanks Jim for the many kind comments over the years!
