Unfortunate but, some pride themselves with destroying groups and
Usenet by infiltrating the group and constantly raising the grain of
the types with the 20 grit personalities. Sometimes this takes a few
sockpuppets and that is done on a professional calibre. I have seen
too many groups bite the dust this way. This group has surprisingly
survived a tonne of this BS.
One has to wonder that some editorialize so well, with so much time
spent here, actually do any woodworking, at all.

Yeah and a few days ago I posted an OT concern about the increasing
number of labeled and unlabeled off topic posts (including troll
materiel); and as expected got criticized. But the fact is, I have
been hanging out and contributing to this group for 10-15 years and
had it has been a good experience. But the increasing number of off
topic material (excluding spam) that appears to be coming for
subscribers is increasing rapidly. If it continues rec.woodworking
will become a useless wasteland just like one of our RV groups and
others. The increasing amount of venomous name calling also directly
follows the path that (
) took. When I looked at rec.outdoors,rv. travel at the time of this
post there were 28 items on the subject list and one was on topic.
There is also a very large amount of fighting, name calling and
profanity on that site.
What this group needs to understand is that many, maybe most, of us
are woodworkers who spend time working in the shop, spending time with
families, etc. We do not spend large amounts of time sitting in front
of the keyboard plotting filtering strategies to protect us from the
crap that shows up in these groups. When using a group becomes too
difficult we just quit using it.
You won't miss me but as other folks fade away, as they have with
other groups, you will miss the knowledge and resources these people
