I'm pretty sure that Theo is a few years younger than I am. He never
did welcome email that didn't have a specific and sensible purpose,
though I guess finding out if he's still kicking might be considered
specific and sensible enough.
He is alive and well. we talked a few days ago VIA a website. he said
life is basically good! LOL I think he got tired of the spam and
political crap here. I am too and may disapear soon also. he can not
filter web tv. its a shame we cant keep this group ON topic. I dont
mind OFF topic stuff but here lately I get hundreds of headers a day
and after filtering I have less than half! and 80% of whats left is
OFF TOPIC. well go ahead start the flames. I tuned in several years
ago and can tune out anytime so..... how many good folks are we gonna
loose before we learn?
I think it was about 6 words or so that were suggested at the time, but it
was good enough to reduce the spam flood from a hundred a day down to two or
three spamcraps, if that. Which group of spam is it that's plaguing you?
I'll go through my filters and find those key words for you.
I've got the spam pretty much covered. I filter be author ,words and
google ect. I could add OT to the list but I DO enjoy some of the OT
posts. I dont respond to them but I do read some so I dont want to do
that. sometimes I get headers and it says its getting up to [just for
example] 1200 headers and after it filters out what I want it to I get
maybe 60-70 posts. thats fine. out of the 60-70 I might get 10-15
woodworking related posts! thats where the problem is lately. I
understand it's an election year and politics is a hot topic but it
realy doesnt belong here. All it does is flare tempers and causes
degradation of the group. The nuggets of usefull stuff are getting
harder to find. I also find when someone tries to help someone else in
comes the flamers bitching about spelling,grammer,legalities
ect..ect..ect... ad nauseum. then it turnes into a spitting contest.
Soon the nuggets are ,lost in the bullshit. thanks for the offer of
help. BTW I like the picnic table! you aint gotta worry but it being
blown away in the wind! It looks rock solid.
Sure, a good portion of the OT stuff is what makes this area the family it
is. Yeah I know, your election is a good portion of the current conversation
and many are not really interested in it, but it will be gone soon enough to
be replaced by something else, maybe a little more interesting or on topic.
Appreciate that. This is the first time I've used bench bolts because I
wanted the table to be easily dismantled for winter storage. It also made
for easy transportation to the friend's house. I was really surprised at how
sturdy the table was when putting it together even with just one stretcher
assembled. Guess I shouldn't have been so surprised since the bolts *are*
designed for heavy bench construction.
I'm off on Sunday for a barbeque where the table will be properly
christened. Might be one of the last barbeques for the season. Let me tell
you, it stinks living in an apartment and not having easy access to an
outdoor grill. :)
Learn what? All of life is full of things we don't care about, wish weren't
there, annoy us, please us, etc. Maybe we should learn that we simply can't
make a perfect environment that everybody is in complete agreement is
