Default So long -

I was excited when I found this forum because I thought I had found a community of craftsmen where all ideas were welcome and where the only things that mattered were having fun and creating good products.

In many cases I have found that to be true.
But more and more of late - the only thing anyone wants to discuss is their pet way of doing things. Which that alone is fine.
But some repeatedly stoop to making snide comments and insulting the intelligence of those who don't join them in promoting these methods --
EVEN when they are not disagreed with.

I have also been criticized and misrepresented for responding to what people SAY instead of what they may or may not have MEANT.

Let me say before I go --
I regret if anyone has felt attacked or offended by anything I have said -
But I have reviewed my posts and I have NEVER attacked anyone personally
Yes -- I have responded when I was criticized and I have commented on attitudes -- but NEVER on individuals.
NOR have I criticized anyone's method of doing things.
On the contrary -- I have praised ideas even though I did not personally use them. But that is not enough for some - and they insist on portraying such a choice in a negative light.

Clearly -- I do not have the temperment to deal with this.
It's a waste of time that could be better spent routiing.

I have enjoyed chatting with several of you - and if you feel the same - my personal contact information is in my profile.

For those who will be glad to see me gone -- CHEERS -

To all -- Happy Routing
And Good Bye

Sadly, posting something in a forum is often misunderstood and confused with dark humor, sense of humor, and or taken out of context entirely.

Let's hope that your departure is only a short 'vacation'.
