Yeah, it's been quieter than normal. I think some of the political
discussion is partially responsible. In a week or two people will head
out to their shops to once again use a few "dolls" in their "draw"
Marching to the beat of a different drum is great... unless you're in
It's not just here, I've notived it in the bbq group, as well as the
L.A. Dodger's group, even the home repair group (which is REALLY

My wife says the same thing about her groups. And my girlfriend says

friendly places to be than a newsgroup.
I have to admit, I remember keeping count on the replies to the

rushing to their keyboards in apoplectic fits - none of them really
had too much to do with woodworking. You could type
I like Norm's work
What's wrong with Craftsman tools?
and the flood of liver bile and venom would fill the group. Gnashing
of teeth, pounding on keyboards.... everyone had an opinion and a
bitter experience to relate.
Now even those things are gone.
