That's it, I'm outta here. I've had enough of the wreck. Seems there is just
too much nonsense going on here anymore. There's a certain few guy's here
that no matter what you say or have done, they've said it, or done it
better. Too many politicians for my likings. I get enough of that crap on
the television, what little I watch. Too many shills for too many other
people's company. Seems nobody has enough money to have the right tools to
meet every one else's standards. Too much trolling going on. Since I sold my
boat, I don't want anything to do with it. But mostly, just tired of the off
"Cartoons don't have any deep meaning.
They're just stupid drawings that give you a cheap laugh."
Just in case you're still lurking, you should take heart. What goes on
here is nothing compared to rec.crafts.metalworking or alt.machines.cnc.
At least here you can find some good advice, excellent stories, and for
the most part, civil people.
Just filter out the noise and enjoy the rest.
I agree with Rick. I would hate to see you leave.
Outlook will filter out most of the crap and there still is good stuff to be
If nothing else, the newbies could benefit from your experience.

I've never understood the apparent necessity of announcing that "one
has had enough, and they're leaving." If you just left we'd probably
never know it and since you left you wouldn't care. Why not just go?
Feel the need to fire one last shot across everyone's or someone's
bow? That makes you no better than the ones you're complaining about.
Or do you just want someone to beg you to stay in a pathetic cry for
Either way, don't let the door...well, you know.

He's likely frustrated with the idiots who discuss endlessly about how
they like to set their saw to cut within ten thou ...you know, the
bullshit, the endless drivel. I did a spreadsheet for compound
angles. You can set it to any degree of accuracy; but who in the name
of all that's holy needs, or can measure an angle to a thousandth of a
degree, a ten-thousandth if that's what you want? He's likely finally
frustrated trying to find something useful and intelligent from
doughead posters whose only affair with woodworking happened when a
dirty huge log fell on their head. However, he will miss the odd
really good hints and discussion which do occur occasionally.

Pat and Mike came over to this country from the Auld Sod and went out
to look for work.
On the very evening after they got here, they met up to compare
Pat: "Michael, I got me a job in a machinist's shop today. Don't you
know that they do work to a thousandths of an inch."
Mike: (considers this for a long stretch and then says) " 'Gar,
that's a fine thing, Michael. (another long pause) "How many of
those thousandths are there in an inch?"
Pat: (considers this for another long stretch and finally says)
"Lord, Michael, I don't know - there must be millions of them."

Sounds like you were here looking for the wrong things and since it failed
your personal expectations you felt it necessary to announce to the air your
feelings in case it managed to make anyone feel bad and/or want to pump you

mine: You have to get real, do not have to read what doesn't please you,
