If I had to label myself, it'd be a .org'r ... but I have frequented the zone quite a bit over the years. I also visit several other music related message boards & let me tell you, PZ definitely is not the "leader" of negativity & such ... IMO, that award EASILY goes to the "green board" (phish) on phantasytour.com. Some of the other colored boards on pt are not far behind. You need a thick skin or at least a good compass.

On the other hand of the spectrum, I have found the Telluride Bluegrass Festival forum www.festivarian.com/index.php/board,4.0.html to be almost spooky how friendly & cordial the tone is over there!

All it really takes is one individual to take down a board ... I've witnessed at least a few times. Add in a few bad apples and appearances can be deceiving ... as if there are greater numbers of bad apples than there really are.

[quote="ruby_claire"
I'm going to make an observation, feel free to lambaste or at least correct me if I am in the least bit wrong...

I hear the call for a forum within this forum for HepC sufferers similar to the one on The PhilZone.

I haven't ever visited PZ, all I know of it is what I have picked up here. Based on that impression, I am not impressed. What I gather is that there are some serious negative vibes over there and that there are quite a few people who feel the need to try and bring those negative vibes here.

If this is the case, why in the world would they start something here that actually encourages people from over there to come here? It's just a thought.

If you are asking someone to do something for you, isn't it best to respect their wishes? I believe it states in the rules/regs portion of this forum that disrespect is discouraged. Seems to me that f you want a Hep C forum , encourage your fellow PZ forum members to lay off the negative bullshit (emphasis on the word BS) ~ just my 2 cents.
End of quote.



I think you will find that I have never lambasted anyone here, nor will I. Not my style. I will, however, try to respectfully give you some clarifying information.

The Hep C area of the Zone is a sacred space, treated as such by every Zoner. The rare visits by other Zoners are to lend support, cheer people on, share "vibage" and to get information.

I can not "control" Zoners, anymore than I can cure Hep C or cancer. I am often referred to as a "voice of reason" over there, and probably thought of by some as a busybody old lady when I ask for civility. Because respect and gentle discourse are important to me, I speak out when the spirit moves me.

I am not asking the Furthur board to create what the PZ Hep C area has, since only we can create that sacred space, but to open up a "folder" like Show Review, Fan Connect and Music Talk so people can easily find and use it. I am not suggesting a replacement for the Zone's Hep C folder, but instead, a space here that anyone with a life threatening/changing illness, a caregiver, a curious or supportive person can visit to get and give information, love and support. It is possible that there are people on this board would like to get that without visiting the PhilZone.

Feel free to ask more questions, I'll try to answer.
FUCK CANCER!

Peace & Love

Respect? Does that exist on the internet?

Judit, you could start Sacred Space for the HepC as a continual thread... Following our Sacred Space example from the Art thread.

It would be a start, and it can be started now, if you wish to...

Love, Paige
