Is this a discussion board or a suggestion box?

#1418 3 years, 4 months ago
The place just went live a few days ago and 75% of the threads here are people suggesting that the band do this or that, play this or that, this board needs to do this and that, play this or play that, Hey Phil why don't you do this or do that, Furthur should be doing this and not that or maybe we can start writing set lists and then maybe they will do it this way or that way...This ain't freakin' Burger King people it's a discussion board where people discuss things.

EVERYBODY has an idea LOL. Do you honestly, seriously think that the admins here and the band members are sitting around taking notes on what YOU think they should do? People seem to forget that this music has been going strong for nearly half a century...why do people think they can start dictating what the band should do now? People need to CHILLAX and let this new place flow naturally...

They are moderators and band members they are not your Politicians trying to appease your every need just to get your votes. Silly Deadheads....freakin' relax, sit back and enjoy the ride and leave the damn BUS DRIVERS the hell alone. LMAO! This is a cool place and all but enough with the ASS GLITTER and the HEY, DO IT MY WAY attitude. These guys are professionals...remember? GET YOUR HEADS OUTTA THEIR ASSES AND TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT.

That is all.

You are correct, it is a "discussion board" not a suggestion box. I see nowhere in any of the welcome messages anything that reads "tell us what to do" or "how do you think we should run this forum" or "the band needs assistance in how to be a band" They do stuff and we discuss it...I mean, correct me if I am wrong but I really don't think this discussion board was started so that a bunch of people could come here and try to tell Furthur how to be Furthur. There is a thread up top for questions and comments on the board and the way it runs I don't think we need multiple threads on a daily basis telling them what YOU think they should do. Negative karma my ass all you want but I doubt you'd want someone coming into your new house tryin' to tell you what to do or what music to play on the stereo. lol

I hope no one around here thinks they can tell the band what to do. Probably wouldn't be a good idea. Anyone who's followed the Dead for a while surely knows that all the members are independent minded in the extreme. And life is that much better for it.

But this forum is unique in that the band does have some personal involvement. So I'd say it is reasonable to expect that if people have requests or questions this would be the place to bring them up.

Of course, there's a big difference between making a point and grinding an axe...
