Clearly, someone is insecure.
Well, who might that be then? All I can say is, you are lucky it is/was me. Most wouldn't be so nice about it. I'm tired of messing with instigators and five fries short of Happy Meals. Go pound sand already!

I thought the women posting were getting professional "advice" off you tube?

To me DIY is for fairly basic stuff. Anything requiring professional knowledge, I'm happy to get a pro. (Male OR female!) Idont need to worry about blowing shyte up to prove anything

I don't think it's plural women. I believe it's just me, one woman. And no, I'm not getting professional advice off youtube. Also, what's considered professional obviously varies from one person to the next (like dryer belts).

All I saw one person said they got advise and one accused of doing so.

Dryer belts? Yeah I could do that...I didn't think it was a big deal though..

are you the nurse? its kinda like me getting my blood taken and walking away thinking I too, could be a nurse. Ultimately IMO, we all have different skills. We might be able to do bits and pieces, but a skilled trade, can't be learnt online.

Where I'm from there is 4 years training for almost all trades.

DIY is good and fine, but without knowledge and experience, we probably won't do as good of a job as someone who is trained, regardless of gender

ROTFLOL.... that's just all. This has gotten so funny. Sorry if we've got you all up in the air and confused. It's actually pretty funny, especially when you can get someone so worked up that they're wetting their pants. LMAO. Actually, LOL....I'm the nurse, too....a "late in life" nurse, who has had several professions before becoming one.

That's what's in the OP. This length of this goofy thread started over dryer belts, however ridiculous.

I think beachmel is the nurse. No it can't be learned online. The only way to learn is to do it. And making the argument that you shouldn't do it because you haven't done it doesn't make sense to me. That's been the argument in this thread.

Where else is a person going to get the experience without getting the experience? It's not about being a skilled tradesman. It's about DIY when you can. Thus far the biggest skill problem I have faced is mudding/plastering. That's a technique that takes time to harness. I did it, and it wasn't so hot. When I had my ceilings done my contractor mudded over for me. He also had me there with him so I can improve my own skill. Why some folk take issue with that, I don't know.

Keep in mind that I'm not pouring foundation for a new extension, building an extension, etc on my own. But doing basic home repair like wiring, installing doors, etc is something I can do. A part of my entry way refacing project will be to patch up my outside stairs, which took a beating this past winter. I'm thinking of putting in some stone tiles as well.

I think she's referring to MR. He's been worked up about the topic since the get go. Apparently, it's an insulting topic to him.

I really shouldn't, but this is funny. If you think hanging sheet-rock, taping, mudding is tough.... you don't stand a chance. Those guys are half stoned out of their gore and or drunk when they do that.
