We all have our own way of participating, some obviously feel that going into detail and addressing specific topics will help, others have a way of throwing it all out there with the hope some of it will stick to the wall.

Some need verification, perhaps because there may be a sliver of doubt in their mind, others have the confidence to stand on their own two feet and call it the way it is, that is life.

Each of us has a moral obligation to be responsible for what we put out there, particularly when there are sharp spinny objects involved. We also have the moral responsibility to point out when advice is bad or just plain wrong, I personally would rather hurt a posters feelings than find out later that someone was seriously injured when I could have cautioned them about the danger.

Sadly many very talented people have been driven away from this forum due to pettiness and the insecurity of certain members, lets not let that happen anymore, we need all the knowledge we can get to keep this hobby safe and enjoyable.

Frank, I agree with you in principle but not in practice. In reality, when we feel a moral obligation to correct someone, here-in lies the problem. Both sides wants to prove their point because both sides think they are right. We are not morality cops. If we strongly disagree with a post, we make our objection ONE TIME and then let it go. If it still bugs us, we should take it up with one of the moderators in private and let them be the judge.
Believe me when I see something that is not right, it kills me if my point of view is falling on deaf ears, but I learned to leave it be.

One thing I did notice is that after a long period of time (like in too much time on here), members do tend to feel like the morality police and become aggressive and at that point, when we see it in ourselves, it's time for a sabbatical. If we dont see it in our selves, then the above situations arise and a referee is required - the dreaded moderator intervention.

Ask me how I know.LOL

It will be interesting to see how this project worked out for the original poster, my apologies to Quickstep for anything I have contributed to getting all this so far off track.

Quickstep, your project does sound like one to be proud of, we would really like to see how it turns out, could you start a new thread when you finish your mill?

With this being said, I am going to close this thread, all that has been said has not been productive, and there is no way to clean this thread up, which is sad. This thread needs to fade away.
