Virginia..... when Bernie and Trump go at it I'm glad you're here for me to taunt  :o

Steve, I'm shocked you would say such a thing!!!  LOL

I hope that your prophesy is correct.

I'm guessing that this place is what is known as "self-moderating" but don't know for sure.  I know the admin are displayed in a different color from the rest of us pukes and that is the only difference I've ever seen.

Right before I had my back fused, I was a volunteer moderator on a board for people with spinal issues.  Man, never again.  Someone was always upset.  Their thread had been hi-jacked or was not being given enough attention (responses) or whatever.  I always felt that had a lot to do with the fact that 99% of the people posting were in severe pain (just injured, needed surgery, recovering from surgery, failed surgery).  If you have a successful outcome, you reclaim your life and go about your business again.

To a point, some of that is true here (longevity of users).  A lot of folks come by to get a problem resolved, tips on how to start an upholstery business, etc.  They get the help they need and, hopefully, are off running a very successful upholstery business.  I felt like I had found my niche here.  Liked that there didn't seem to be a lot of drama.  I also recognized that I was likely to have more questions.  Time passed and I made a couple of friends along the way so I stayed, felt comfortable enough to post about things not 100% upholstery related.  I think that is something all "lifers" are guilty of.

Love it!  Is it, as it sounds, a desk that sits on your lap or are there legs still to be attached?  How old is that sucker?

Hi All!

I was encouraged by a friend to not let one person ruin, what to me, has been a great forum.  I've learned more than I can ever begin to tell you from some very knowledgeable people and I hope that I've been able to pass along a little of what I've learned along the way.

Keith's remarks just caught me at a bad time and I decided if he felt that way, everybody did.  I was told that wasn't true.  So, here I am.

I normally have pretty thick skin but his remarks, a broken knee and dealing with the limited mobility that causes and all the contractor issues, it was, as they say, the straw that broke the camel's back.

I don't read a lot of threads because I know that what is being discussed is not anything I am ever going to attempt.  Perhaps Keith should try that with mine.
