    From what I've seen you guys are doing a great job. Just remember that you can't please all people all the time. Keep your chin up!

    I think we all are. Everyone has tried so hard to get this thing rolling in the right direction, but as I have said numerous times on here, this place is like the local hardware store where we all pull up an empty spike keg and chat about woodworking.

    A few months ago I decided to leave the railroad after working there for 10 years. That was a hard choice but work at Lie Nielsen seemed ideal. The perfect mix of woodworking and machinist work. For 90 days I tried to make the best of it, but in the end I found out it was a good place...just not a good place for me. Perhaps these two people feel the same way.

    Either way do not beat yourself up about it. The membership is growing, new sub-forums have popped up...good things are happening here.

    more than likely i am primarily responsible for the two leaving, I'm sorry that they took that kind of action, they both were knowledgeable people.

    Glenn and Bill, I am sorry that you decided to leave and I hope that, one day, you will reconsider. Thanks for your contributions while you were here.
    Cheers, Frank

    I'm sorry that anyone feels the need to leave. However, folks should try to understand we're all figuing out how to drive this bus as we go along, so there are quite likely going to be some more times when things aren't perfect. I don't have a lot of patience for folks who are quick to criticize, but offer no suggestions for improvement. (I'm not saying either of these guys were in that boat, BTW.)

    I don't think anyone can honestly claim we're not trying to make this a great place. Yes, there will be slip-ups, but I think the key point is in how those slip-ups are handled. For being on the 'net a little over a month, I think things are holding up pretty well. Not everything has been perfect, but we're working on it.

    Vaughan, Tod, and everyone involved in making this a great woodworking hangout, I think youíre doing a great job with FW. This site has a good vibe about it. I agree that the post in question was inappropriate and mean spirited but it was taken care of fairly quickly. Iím sorry that Glenn & Bill felt that they had to leave but life goes on.
