    Default Lockout/Tagout Systems and Scuttlebutt

    Okay, not really.

    What the frak?!
    Two threads locked down by the webteam and an admonishment to only post on-topic?!
    Yes, there are the TOS. But this is too Orwellian.
    We cannot voice our opinions of what's happening here to each other???

    Apparently not...

    I say we just do whatever we want whenever we want and on whatever thread we want. The webteam is like a woman on the rag- they will come and go and be annoying once a month and we'll just have to deal with it.

    Yeah, the Webteam thing is getting pretty rediculous. Has anyone actualy tried contacting the company itself to see what the issue is? Surely someone would be concerned that the majority of the contributing members of the forums are all aggravated with the same issue.

    Or maybe that is just wishful thinking as well.

    Default Learning Curve

    What makes these forums worthwhile reading is the input from a diverse set of experiences and opinions. In the first 4 posts on this thread, the posters represent a total of 16,498 comments that I would guess contributed mightily to the success of the forums. Everyone makes mistakes, be it mundane comments on a forum, or actions that take peoples lives. If everything goes right you will never know any other way of confronting a problem. Only by errors, are we forced to step back and analyze the results of the “mistake”.
    I would imagine, right about now the “Forum Police” are being forced into rethinking their actions. Perhaps it will be a good learning experience for the King and for “Knecht Rupprecht”.

    For some of us, December 6th was a day of fear and trepidation. Knech Ruprecht was the companion of Saint Nicholas who visited on the feast day of the Good Saint. Knecht Ruprecht was dressed in rags and bound with chains. He represented the incarnation of the devil, and the chains were the sign of his being in the control of the Good Saint. We had to kneel and say our prayers, and if everything was right, Knecht Ruprecht was driven out and we got some small presents. If things were not right, we recieved a lump of coal or a willow switch from the evil Knecht. Such were the times of Christmas past growing up in a Bavarian Community.
