Part of my post was just a response to his post # 131 words from his mouth not mine nor questioning why he was looking at information about laser diode maybe a little bit sharp but he did say:Sir, you have come into this forum with a very rude screw you attitude towards members who have been here for years and well respected. Maybe that doesn't mean much to you, but it does to me. You are not making this forum a better place with this ID or the others I believe you are likely using too, bug off.
We have a new handful of trolls who need to be dumped again.
"Holy Hell! How come I've never seen this site mentioned before?
Not to be frank, but what is the point of this thread then? "
The remaining part was responding to Curtis, agreeing with and backing up, and reiterating and explaining the purpose of the thread.
As I said before in post #133: "Exactly + to have said non-commercial site list of diodes, suitable for use in hand held lasers builds, as a resource on LPF to help LPF members deal with the few out of thousands of diodes that might be of some use in hand held laser builds.
Information useful to members of LPF is why this thread exists + because a member was good enough to take the time and effort necessary to put the list together for the benefit of LPF members, making a contribution to LPF.
Is all extremely obvious to anyone.
My guess is the question was not a thought out and out of boredom just to post something and waste time + not related to any functional real world need or interest in the information i.e. building a hand held laser or an answer. "
While I thought it impossible for anyone to ask " then what is the point of this thread?"if they gave it any thought at all in response to giving a non-LPF link to a commercial listing of 10,000+ diodes to be helpful, maybe it is possible someone could not fathom the purpose of the thread--who knows--go figure?
25 post 18 day member, King of LPF.If you or anyone have any further .... as to not further ruin this otherwise very helpful and useful thread.
Try applying that to yourself.
LPF is not Facebook or some other lame social media "look at me, look at me" babysitting forum to spoon feed answers to people who don't, at least, ask partially thought out questions and "then what is the point of this thread? " is not one of them, as I mentioned in my post #133.
LPF is not a social media chit chat forum for people who crave attention or have whatever problems and/or don't even make an effort to avoid posting "dumb questions" and comments.
LPF is about lasers, the point of the thread and LPF is still not and never will be, fortunately, you.
Is not the purpose of LPF nor the reason it exists, as mentioned.
