  • Not sure? Sat. Night arbtrary post? Oh yeah.. O/T.

    It matters right, if I put the O/T at the front or the azz of the "Title"

    What is my Saturday random post??? ?

    Oh? Its a rant.. I don't like it when folks here post projects and the replies are more of what you should have or could have done. Instead of the common response which would be, great job!!!

    Just saying, it gets uncomfortable for someone like myself to post stories or pics of our work for fear of being questioned.

    Its a Home Shop place. If we ask for help we love the knowledge here. Sometimes it looks like a pissing contest.

    Just learn to NOT steal the spot light from the main subject.. JR

    Speaking of whom, has he been around recently?

        JR, I hear you! It seems rare to me on this forum that someone just rags on anothers project or methods but it does happen occasionally. There are other forums where this problem is rampant and it is uncomfortable.

        On the other hand, when I post a project or ask a question I welcome the criticism. I will never know all the right answers and I have learned much when others have suggested alternatives. I appreciate a pat on the back as much as the next guy and it is good to have your methods validated but I will always pay attention to the critics.

        All the best sir!

                I hear you,7F. Rather frost my cookies than deal with mud slides and fires though.

                  I totally get what you're saying, but if I were saying it, I would've ...






                  see what I did there?

                  I can only speak to my own posts but I've always found very positive responses and constructive suggestions.
                  I'm not on here as often as others so maybe I don't know the posts/people you are referring to.

                      Why do you care so much what people think?
                      It is just the internet. If someone has an opinion that you don't
                      like, ignore it and move on. You might actually learn something
                      from some of the comments, be they positive or negative.
                      All this nicey-nice, oh-you-hurt-my-feelings is just the kind of
                      thing that is ruining society. Grow some stones or see someone
                      by the hour.

                        I usually take criticism one of two ways:
                        A light bulb will go off, and I'll think, "Yeah, I should've tried that."
                        -OR-
                        I'll think, "Mr. Know-it-all has no idea what he's talking about." and I'll ignore him.
                        I take everything I read on the internet or watch on the news with a grain of salt. Everyone's an 'Expert'.

                          A bit of cold weather is OK in order to avoid that lot, and the rest of it that was left unmentioned.

                            Last activity was 2/14/15, so guessing no.

                              Get a snowblower and enjoy the benefits of the cold.

                              Your right about the cold, it does stop a lot of bad diseases. People who live in the northern (or southern) climates tend to be healthier then those that live in the hot places, frostbite and hypothermia not withstanding.
