I still don't think there's any need for a pugmill...

AH!, now I see how it goes!

I started a legitimate discussion about pugmills, and their practicality. When posters failed to convince me that they were needed, I said so.
Because I expressed an opinion that OffCenter didn't like, he resorted to an ad hominem attack, which really isn't necessary, the majority of people here can disagree without ranting posts calling others 'invertebrates', and calling their posts 'stupid'.
I mean, these posts came out of the blue, and were really unexpected, and surprising.
I guess these replies will reflect well on the forum, and Ceramic Arts in general, but maybe no-one cares about that.
Besides, how could a person's real name ever be verified anyway? and WHY should people be required to give it?
Did I call anyone names? Did I ridicule anyone's post?
this is really disappointing.

Since I started this thread, I can hijack it at any time, as I will.
Below is partial list of people that have started threads in this section of the forum. There are fourteen names on the list, I have circled the names of members that have posted NO information on their page. nine of us, out of fourteen, have no real name, pictures, birthdays, locations, etc. Most of these people did not 'introduce themselves' either.
Why should I (Or anyone) be required to post anything they don't want to post?

I've reported OffCenter's rant post above, and ask that it be removed in the interest of a more civilized discussion.
Thank you.

In fact, it doesn't even make sense to reclaim clay, by ANY method.


idem.


That's a stupid thing to say. Just because it may not make sense for some dishmaker to reclaim clay doesn't mean it doesn't make sense for someone else to reclaim clay.

Economically, it does not make sense to reclaim clay by ANY method.
I have done my own figuring, as have others that are better at the ceramics game than me.

I don't think it's a stupid thing to say, at all.
