Larry, I believe Tracy is referring to the kind of subforum like the Whine and Cheese or the Good, Bad, and Ugly (on BladeForums) that have little to no moderation that he will not support on these forums and can present huge issues to having a G rated environment.This is a real nice forum and I've become more acquainted with some makers that I didn't know much about before. As a collector and not a maker I find all the shop talk a little boring to me and wish there was a little more variety of sub forums with other things to talk about. Doesn't have to be drama. Just my .02 cents.
Same here , I have been waiting for a place like this for a long long time. When I found out about it , I immediately joined and supported it.Just the way I like it and one of the reasons this has become my "Main" place to post and read.
I have enough drama in real life and I don't need to constantly see off color posts about some nastiness I don't care about.
I'm here for knives and friendship and I find them both plentiful here.
Big thanks to Tracy for giving me a nice place to relax and enjoy my hobby.
