Well, I was writing a nice flowery note saying how much we love the extended family and how sorry it makes us to see people attacking each other on this forum, but I kicked the off switch on the power strip to the computer and lost the post. By the time I rebooted, the playpen was already full of people who seem to like calling each other names... so I'm actually laughing instead of getting mawkish about this. I'm not entirely sure where to go with this now, it's your time and if you want to spend it beating on each other, that's your choice. I just want a segregated place to put posts and people who enjoy that sort of thing.

The Whipping Post was created as a place to beat a dead horse, not each other. In the first ten years of running allmanbrothersband.com, we probably banned two or three people. But lately there has been a barrage of daily requests to ban this guy or that guy, and everyone from newbies to people with lots of stars after their user names engage in personal attacks that raise the hair on the back of my neck. Banning people is fairly pointless, as you have all seen it can be an endless cycle. I can remove you and all your posts with one mouse click, so the good news for me is it is less work to delete someone than it is for that someone to create a new account, but if someone is determined enough they can do it. And you can ban IP addresses but someone with only a moderate amount of skill, or even luck, can get around that. This is the Internet folks, and it brings out both the best and the worst in people.

So... we're not going to sit here and read every thread and play Forum Police. But we have a new tool at our disposal to use when we see fit - if people want to act like two year olds, and apparently a number of people find that an attractive idea ;-), we will move the threads to that forum. And if people act exclusively like two year olds, they may find themselves restricted to posting in the Playpen.

If you want to set your sites a tad higher, check out the other forums. If you want to talk about something controversial or that most people have tired of discussing, put it in the Post. Post something way over the line, it will be removed and we will remove you and your reincarnations should we feel like doing so. Yes, it is somewhat arbitrary. That's life.

We hope that most of you come here because you enjoy it and you enjoy each other. We know many, many people have made friends and even partners for life through this community. We want to keep that good vibe. But in any community of this size, there will be a wide range of personalities and we'll do our best to figure out how to keep the peace.

Hit your note, whatever it is...

Rowland and Lana

I hope everyone is well. I miss this place from time to time. Facebook made it a ghosttown here.
I learned how to fight on the internet here and continually expect everyone to be nice enough because they listen to the ABB. Thats now the way the rest of the internet works apparently.
