I'm going to unsub for a time. The US politics threads are to much
effort to killfile, and are overwhelming the signal with noise.
I'll miss the place, but it's not the wreck I love anymore.
There's a smell around the place that I can't clean up, and just don't
want in my nose anymore.
As Nelson sez on the Simpsons, "smell ya later."
But I suspect the stink isn't going away soon.
More's the pity.

Well, you see, Robert, it's like this: When your neighbour put manure
on his garden, you smell it.
You can put up with it because he shares some of his veggies when he
When he starts spreading manure on your other neighbour's driveway,
for no apparent reason, it's okay to ask why.
Catch my drift? (pun intended)
It's odd how this works. You can start more crap with just two
sentences than anyone on this group. I throw out the lure....
nothin'. I know there are other Canuckians around here... but YOU
are the only one that responded? Unfair, says I. Unfair.
That was actually aimed AT Dave. While it is certainly his
prerogative, he never seems to participate in any actual woodworking
discussions. All the way back to when he was (he had another handle
or two, I think he was Bay Area Dave for a while...) the only thing I
ever remember him for was smarmy to nasty political commentary.
I don't recall anything of value concerning woodworking being posted.
The good thing about him leaving in the way he did is that he will be
taking most of his stuff with him. Set up to "auto erase", his posts
will disappear like having a self starting robot clean up an
overcrowded/overripe dog kennel.
Thanks, Dave. I didn't appreciate the effort at the time.
I know, I know.. we understand each other. May not always agree, but I
confess to get some giggles out of getting the Church-lady-types'
panties in knots.
You see, people take themselves too seriously. I know I do sometimes.
But sharing woodworking ideas and going off-track is part and parcel
of every-day interaction.
Some of it is the funniest shit ever. Like Watson suggesting that Tim
& I are twins. (I only wish I was that eloquent). That stuff cracks me
I happen to think this is a great bunch of people.. many interesting
viewpoints...and no, I do not have a cite. (Doing happy dance because
Miller and Clarke can't see meeeee.)( Miller & Clarke...sounds like a
failed polar expedtion...or a bad beer....)
Sometimes I crack myself up...I need medication for that.

Same here. I have eliminated most with the same methods. It's sad to see
that so many thought that they could use this ng as a private therapy
session or political stump. Some people must sit at their keyboards all day
and promote their vast knowledge. I can usually glean some useful stuff
from anyone, but the frequent posters have little to offer me.
