    the infamous toolbox thread but I'm too lazy to go through 500+ search results of "toolbox". Anyone have the link or a better keyword to search for? :o

    I have to admit its a bit dis-heartening to see a thread I started as a way to share a good deal I found with my fellow ck5'ers turn into what it did, and what it is. I admit I let my anger get carried away, Im the first to admit that. But really guys, the post was made with the best of intentions, and was met with erroneous information. Should I have not posted the good deal in the first place? Should I have let the erroneous information go unmolested in the thread so people would shy away from the good deal? No, on both those accounts, imo. But yes, I should have held my temper better.

    I did try to calm the thread down, many times, and tried to let it just die when it became obvious it wasn't constructive any longer. I was met with comments about running the thread till the wheels came off, that I wasn't getting off that easy, etc... with very few people coming in to say the other guy was out of line. One guy even told us to stop arguing and just let the original poster enjoy his new box, aparently not realizing I was the original poster, and that's exactly what I was trying to do. Its okay, I know for the most part things said about the thread are said in good nature. I laughed my butt off when I saw there are even t-shirts now. :haha: But I am sad to see it become such a stigma around here. Oh well, guess I learned a lesson there.

    Hey, I don't appreciate you coming into my thread and reiterating your opinion about your trainwreck thread about your shiney non-magnetic toolbox, in turn ruining mine. ;)

    Hey Im not complaining about those comments specifically, I found them funny at the time (and still do). I just find it odd half the board seemed anxious to egg the thread on, then turn around and use it as a symbol of a ridiculous on-going arguement. Id be happy to drop the subject, have tried many times in that thread. That thread means little to me really, Ive seen, and participated in, much more heated debates than that in other forums. But here that one has become a cult thread or something. :D

    fabjunkie, I assume you are joking, considering this thread was made about that one. lol :)

    The tool box thread took on a life of it's own, and there was no way anyone was gonna stop it. I think I'd be rather proud if a thread I started was immortalized, for whatever reason.

    Im not really proud of letting my anger get the best of me, as it did in that thread. But I hear what you're saying, and that's gotta be worth something I guess. Thanks. lol :D

    Thank you for the entertainment. I laughed, I cried...I give it two thumbs up. Do you think there will be a sequel? Why is the floor so sticky?
