Re: Censorship on this board

Duke "silenced"? Give me a fucking break. He has the rest of the Internet to play on, including philzone.

He intentionally set out to ruffle feathers, he did, and he got slapped by this board's admin. Tough shit. He's a big boy--believe me, he can take it.

Sandbox doesn't mean litterbox. There's a time and place for vulgarity and rudeness, but anywhere that presence becomes relentless it stops being cute or pranksterish and starts being...

wait for it...

offensive.

Duke is a friend of mine. But he went too far here and got exactly what he asked for.

seems like this is a culture clash. over in pzland, offensiveness is regarded as cool, even desirable. in a discussion over there about this, someone even lauded folks who prefer having a thick skin. that's never been my preference, and i'm glad phil and jill and the ptb here seem to agree. you folks already have the pz to be as outrageous and assholish as you want; why do you feel the need to spread that here? because even admin over there is getting tired of you boorishness? (that admin osaid recently that they understood that pretending to be an asshole could be funny, but sometimes its just being an asshole). the person banned here is even so over the top on the pz that he and some of his partners in lameness have had to set up a facebook page entitled the pz all star rejects (pzasr) where they retire when that space gets too hot. y'all have the right to be as lame as you want in your own space, but stop complaining when others don't want it in their neighborhood...

Seems like most of the folks here have the right idea. : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Mandy, I agree with so much that you say. But after watching how you conduct yourself on philzone, I've come to the conclusion that you're just as much of a troll as the people you despise.

You dog the people you don't like and comment negatively on their posts even when they're behaving in ways that you consider acceptable. You whine excessively. And for reasons best understood by you (and only you!) you continue to interact with people who clearly want nothing to do with you.

If you can't be part of the solution, which in places like this means contributing productively, at least stop being part of the problem.

>>>you're just as much of a troll as the people you despise.

i was taught: when in rome, do as the romans do. your mileage obviously varies...

if i had it to do over again, i probably wouldn't have been as reactive over there as i originally was and laid back until i understood that culture more. but i've been a deadhead cyberspacer for over 25 years and was just blown away by what i first saw there on a board supposedly deadicated to what i've always considered a laudable hippie counter-culture. and in my time of doing battle there, it does seem the balance has shifted away from the total dominance of the kind hating culture that thrived there then to one where more and more folks echo some of my original objections and the over the top crassness is much less than it used to be...

the band made it pretty clear from the get go that they would be policing the site.
this is about the music - the band - the community.
not about how much folks in the community would pay sara palin for a blow job.
this isn't camp runAmok - it's furthur.

>>this is about the music - the band - the community.

This is the general discussion area to discuss things not covered in other areas. Doesn't say "general discussion except..."

Hippies and the GD were pretty outrageous in their day. Pigpen telling folk to "take their hands out of their pockets and get with the girl next to them." And as for the community, I have been offered (and received) many blow jobs for my extras back in the day, up until I stopped following bands around to watch them play in 2003.

And Mandala, nice to know that you're a rat.

Mandala, you have the option and opportunity to change, you can be less reactive, dogging and negative if you choose. Your choice. There are plenty of other ways to express yourself and be heard.
FUCK CANCER!
