For the past year or so I have noticed several Lumberjock identities that appear to be the same person. Their posts are very similar containing info on what they are buying, how bad big box stores treat you, the simplicity of their projects, and absurd questions that are constructed to attract equally absurd comments. At first, at least two were located in the same area of Illinois and kept posting in the wrong categories. Since, they have moved around the country but maintained the same language structure and content. If they (he) were not so annoying, I would not comment. But his almost daily postings are off putting.

Just saying.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. First Facebook, then the elections… Lumberjocks is the next logical step in world domination. THOSE SNEAKY RUSSIANS!!!

I am familiar with one member from Illinois that has been banned twice.
woodworm1962 and woodworm4303.
he has clocks and a white picket fence in his projects.

is he BACK again ??? (Cricket has this knack of digging them out of their hole).

One would think if you was bannned and came back you would come up with a better second name then just adding different numbers to the original.

But that would assume this poster is thinking.

I think every forum has these people, and the usual term for the second, third or whatever account is a sock puppet.

The best strategy is to ignore the post; never engage. Once he realizes he is being ignored, he will crawl back into the woodwork.

Papadan he was a classic to LJocks. He tried to block Cricket from one of his posts, under an alias. REMOVED

Does anybody know how if possible to get back on after being removed? I say this because back in the day, in a 1 bar/saloon they banned customers from a week to permanent.

My thoughts are we all not interested in woodworking? We live in an era same-sex marriage, LGBT, so why shouldn’t here, at LJocks accept the Lumber Jock deplorable?
We need to open our minds

She gets an extra point for the hard hat if she doesn’t work construction. If she does. It’s minus one point.

Edit: and then I remember she’s pregnant which takes her off the board. Unless she’s late in her third trimester…

Well, if one is stupid enough to post things that get one banned here, one can’t be all that smart, right? I see on other sites where people repeatedly sign on with a new account, and post the same idiotic stuff, over and over again. They must live a pretty pathetic life, but there you go.
