Thought this site might be better than some of the others but I must have been mistaken.
Disappearing responses to threads and then disappearing threads altogether.
Something seems a little fishy here.
Might expect this thread to disappear soon too.

That's weird I haven't noticed anything like that. Maybe Hank can figure out what's going on.

I think there is only 2 people who can remove a post, Hank and the person who posted it.  I'm pretty sure Hank wasn't even around to do it.  It's all my fault.  I owe that guy an apology, in my sleep deprived state some how I missed that it was his video and not a random one he found.  Well, if I'd had my head on strait and knew it was his I'd just contacted him directly with the problem in it.  I came of as one of those curmudgeons I dislike.  Sorry dudes. 

The reason, I was trying to make knives for 4 years before I met the first blacksmith and got to work with him.  During that time I got told all sorts of stuff from would be knifemakers, and yes much of it revolved around those RR spikes.  Those little misinformations caused me much grief and ever since I've made it a point to keep young makers from making the same mistakes.

So in short, I believe the poster removed the post.  Not Hank.  I hate it too, it was a pretty well done video other than the tempering.  I didn't want anyone to get the idea that was proper.  If for some reason that gentleman reads this I'd just suggested directly to him that he might edit that part out.  If I saw the problem others will too.

As a self imposed punishment for my curmongeony I shall now go push mow out yard in the 95Deg heat while recovering from Walking Pneumonia.

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

I hope you reconsider YF, I have found this forum to be the most useful and your posts are very inspiring. I've been on a couple other forums and was tired of being told I couldn't do anything because I wasn't as good as them and would never be. That may be true and I'm too old to start another hobby to devote my full time to. I just wanted to do some forge work to go with my casting efforts. I love your copper work and will be trying some as soon as I can get some copper and time.

I did get kicked off one forum because I told them they were rude to newcomers and, apparently they didn't like it.

Perhaps I was a little to quick to react to the situation and jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Welcome back yesteryear I was sad to see the post and I'm glad to see you've reconsidered. There was a thread that was deleted and I got a correspondence from the user. I hope he reconsiders also I think it was a misunderstanding of the purpose of this forum. I haven't had a lot of time to moderate because of personal reasons I try to touch base and I try to keep things moving in a forward fashion. Everybody has been cordial insightful and helpful to others, but with just typed words sometimes it's hard to convey ideas and their meaning and intentions, as a communication style the few sentences and paragraph can sometimes be misunderstood. 

For those who read this post I hope that we all move forward with our passion for what we're doing. No matter what the discipline. I'm always here to help resolve any issues although it may take a day or two for me to get back to you please hammer on. I've enjoyed everything that everybody's posted even though I don't always get to comment. They are being read by at "The Iron Forge Fire" Have a good day and I look forward to seeing you guys make your stuff and the up and coming "IITH".

Sorry if the grammar is bad I'm doing talk-to-text my and thumbing on a cell phone. Not grammar friendly.
