So Where is _ _ _ _ _ _?
« on: May 18, 2014, 01:06:54 pm »
Sometimes we notice that a member we used to see here often has been missing for sometime, so the first inclination is to simply ask on the forum HEY! Where is so and so?   Folks, this is not a good way to do it. The reason being is, there are sometimes very private reasons to why someone is not on the forum. It could be a member issue, or it could be a forum issue, or it could be no issue at all. But if there is an issue, by posting the question publicly, you put us, the missing member or perhaps even yourself in a position that is much better handled within personal messages.  If you miss someone, and are wondering where they may be, ask another member that you know has had some interaction with the missing person, or better yet, ask an admin via the private messages. 

Today we again had such a topic started that resulted in the topic being deleted, and then a member who likes to stir the pot being "administered".  Please, remember, many times there is a lot more going on with things than you might think. We'll be glad to fill your need for knowledge when we can, but sometimes we are all better off just not knowing.

I have wondered about a few that have gone away or stopped participating, but figured if I was supposed to know, I probably would already. :D

You really have to be careful about how many people you give a piece of it to. Maybe that's why they call it "loosing it" when you give someone a piece of your mind.

Good insight Jeff. I was recently gone (from forum) for a month or so and doubted anyone missed me :) too much...but it wouldn't have suited to go public with the changes (in my life) happening.  I would have certainly responded in a PM cuz you'all are my buds!!

But I'm back now...much, I'm sure, to everyone's vexation :D

Hey guy's, you too Roxie.  I'm around but have visited infrequently for the last couple of years.  Gdaughter is going into the second grade next fall.  Her baby brother will be 10 months old tomorrow.  I spend time shuttling kids here and there.  Dinlaw as well to or from work.  With this schedule and the mill 25 miles away, doesn't allow me to mill.  Weekends with wife and honeydews keep me the rest of the time.  Yesterday was a kitchen faucet repair day.  I do mean day.  Was going to replace the seats of a Price Pfister for hot and cold water.  Turned out the hot water supply also supplied the dishwasher would not shut off.  Had to kill the whole house water to make the repairs.  Then Lowe's only had the faucet parts.  Had to go to Home Depot for the supply valve.  Ate up most of the day.  I've gone back to building and flying control line kit airplanes.  Where I started when I was at home as a kid with my folks.  Later graduated to R/C, sold all of it and bought blacksmith tools.  My poor LT40 Super deserves better I know but sometimes you just do what you have to do.  Ran across this thread during the visit and thought it would be the best place to say hi, I'm still out there.

I use to have a lady that worked for me that missed several work days in a row every couple months.   When I questioned her about it her response was  "I can only take so much of you people at a time and I need a break."      :D

She was a great worker too, so I put up with it.
