John, I believe we all whole-heartedly agree with what Artie said. You've gotten a number of woodworkers together for a cause that benefits the families of veterans in need of assistance, and at the same time gotten people together who have a common interest in woodworking. The conversations here are always friendly. Yes, we do stray off topic at times, but it is never done with any mal-intent. I doubt it will totally end, but being aware it creates more work for you and all the other hosts, I think there will be more effort to minimize responses to off topic remarks which is really what causes the extended wandering from the topic. I know that at times the original topic is totally lost after of an off topic post. Sometimes our sense of humor gets in the way, but an occasional laugh is good for all of us without over doing it. Thanks for all that you've done here.
