Topic tags/keywords: email solicitations

Please see example message below.

I really wish the editors here would stop allowing these email solicitations.

Everyone know they are jerks and provide very little in new plans or anything else.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Good day, dear woodworker-participant lumberjocks com … and we want to encourage the retired master craftsman to finally reveal his secret archive over
16,000 plans – more details on the link ~ http://3weekiet.com/woodworking ~ click here

I really wish LJ members would stop posting about incidents like this. I get them too. I delete them. Posting about them serves no purpose.

And then there are the people who complain about people complaining. I guess that makes me a complainer about complainers who complain about complainers. :-)

Ok, maybe this forum is really for the crikets, so to speak…or for those who are really bothered by such objections as mine or for those who just don’t care or, lastly, for those who just want to joke about such issues.

I experienced some difficulties due to the 14,000 plan people but don’t worry —I won’t bother y’all with the details because I don’t want to irritate many of my fellow Lumberjocks.

Just getting back, all. Thanks to pottz for the kind words and for catching me up to date on things.

It’s true, I have made very few posts and I have mainly been a leech, getting what advice or examples i could from the forum and blogs. And i did not add much to my personal bucket or whatever yall call it.

Therefore no one on lumberjocks knows much about me. So here goes:

I am long time happily married to a sweet lady who unfortunately contracted Parkinson’s disease last year. This damnable of all diseases has racked our family, changing our lives forever. But we are still in love and forever here for each other.

Anyway, I have several grandchildren and I enjoy making simple things for them. And, of course for the rest of the family.

I started woodworking about 13 – 15 years ago just before i retired. Yes, i am a few days older than dirt. I am no expert but I feel i have acquired a massive education because i taught myself everything and I do mean everything. I never had anyone show me anything or took any lessons. I dug stuff out of books and the internet and graduated from the school of trial and error.

I know that many jocks have greatly superior knowledge and I would never question that but the things I have learned work for sure and I am very proud of that. I have not posted my projects but I make small end tables, coffee tables, presentations cases, jewelry boxes, curio cabinets and well, you get the idea.

Hopefully, I can be more of a contributor in the future. I made brief mention last year about advice for beginning woodworkers. I am still interested in working up a small book or something along this line but the problem is every time i start to make notes the topic grows and grows.

Anyway, thank you to whoever is crazy enough to read all this. Stay safe and good luck to all.

David, make sawdust when you can, and share your wisdom to LJ if/when it’s convenient, my FIL passed from Parkinson’s and I completely understand the challenges and frustrations before you. I do not have the benefit of being fortunate enough to gain the proximity of dirt’s age, but hold the knowledge of those with experience in much higher regard than those that have watched a video on something. Wishing the lord holds you and keeps you close as you and your wife carry forward.
