Hello everyone! I have created a series of easy-to-build cabinet and furniture plans called Thrifty Cabinets. There's a sample plan available for every plan, so you can see what you get before you buy the plan. Please take a look:

I'm so sorry that I ever posted on this angry miserable forum. I thought
this was a "recreational" woodworking group. Woodworkers who are interested
in woodworking, but instead it 's a group of people who just want to
complain.


If we could go back in time, the following technique might have worked out
a little better for you:

"Hi! My name is Bruce. I have created a series of plans for cabinets and other
furniture. I sell the plans through my website and offer a sample of each plan
for free. I don't want anyone to think I'm spamming this group, so I thought
that I would introduce myself first. Would you folks mind if I posted a link
to my website?

Here is an example of one of the sample plans so you can see what I am
offering. You'll note that the sample plans do not include the materials
list, cut list, etc. The full plans, of course, would.

[Insert Sample Plan Link Here]"

That post looks a lot less like spam than your version. I suspect that you
would have gotten a slightly warmer reception or, at a minimum, a more polite
send-off.


Thanks DerbyDad03. It's obvious this forum needs a moderator.


This isn't a forum, it's usenet.
Googlegroups and/or whatever other web based forums that show these
posts are simply a conduit that retrieves and re-displays from usenet
onto their web platform.

It's kind of like stealing, really. Many of these forums are monetized
and are making money off content that is produced and available free,
elsewhere.

No moderators. Don't need them. Usenet polices itself and people who
have used it for decades know the rules... like no spam. :-D
