I love this place and the people here who I have met at shows/events/gatherings, and the music of The Allman Brothers Band, but things have turned (REALLY) ugly here lately, and the admins./mods. seems to be absent, or just don't have the time to police this place the way it SHOULD be policed (considering we're all supposed to be adults here,) and I can dig that. This isn't Lana, Rowland or Hophead's full time job. This place could use some serious moderation, though. Until people decide to act like adults and speak toward each other with a little (just a LITTLE) respect, I'm through. No one seems to be able to take the high road these days. I blame no one in particular, but yet, there are new and old posters, alike, who are involved. This place is in a serious tailspin, and I can't watch it happen anymore.

I'll be on Facebook if anybody is looking for me.

Eat a peach for peace.

As bad as it is it was MUCH worse around 2000 when Dickey got the boot. It was downright vicious then. And there were no passwords so anyone could post anything anytime.

So I guess you don't miss me


I'm with you Dave, I'm seriously thinking about doing the same thing.

I agree with Rich. I got my first computer in the fall of 1999. I was scared to go to the old site

There's this thing called sphere of influence. Do not try to control anything outside of your sphere of influence. Otherwise you will drive yourself crazy. Peace~!

I completely understand your point,Dave...but,when good folks (like you) leave..or even talk about leaving) then the a$$holes win. Personally,I'm not into that happening.I just ignore them.IMO,the Good far out weighs the bad around here.

Hophead's a moderator, eh? I didn't know that.

Where have you been brother?

I'm with Dave. All of my friends here (most anyway) are my friends on Facebook. You can find me there as well.

I know the WP can get kind of rough but anyone who goes there pretty much expects it. I didn't know the AG was having problems.

LOL!!! What the heck purpose does that button serve? Water conservation with the provided feeling of flushing? They should feature an explosive diarrhea button...so you can clear out the men's room and have a moment's peace.



since this place is a toilet,this might seem more appropriate

I have come to this site for a while now. I am a recent ABB fan. Turned on to them when I saw DTB open for Santana. I visit almost daily, but have only started posting recently. I respect, appreciate, and have learned from the knowledge shown by the "old-timers" and have always enjoyed the family feel - even if it was from the fringes. Just my two cents, but every family has a few folks they wish wouldn't show up to the reunion. But you shouldn't leave when they do. People come here for the good vibes. Help bring them back...don't abandon those of us who come here to brighten our day. I think we're stronger than that. Again, just my two cents. I will be back tomorrow...looking for a smile.

I'm with Hugh 100% on this. It amazes me how several folks here that complain about the trolls continue to respond to them and provide them with their food. Ignore them, plain and simple. Without that food they will shrivel up, die and go away. Even if they hijack and disrupt a good thread, ignore them. It can't be that hard. Too many good folks have left, we can't afford to lose anymore. BDOB, and others, please reconsider and score one for the good guys.

Free Toilet Humor

WATER...... It has been scientifically proven that if we drink 1 liter Of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more Than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli bacteria found in feces, in other words, We are consuming 1 kilo of poop!

However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, Vodka, beer or other liquors) because alcohol has to go through a Distillation process of boiling, filtering and fermenting.

It is better to drink wine and talk sh*t than to drink water and be full Of sh*t.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information, I am doing this as a public service.

First. When someone posts something you don't like, you will add to the problem by telling them to leave,etc.etc.
It's fuel for the fire.

Second. I've already mentioned this twice but I'll mention it again. If an ignore feature was available you could pick and choose whose posts you want to view.

And believe it or not I agree with WBD. Rowland and the rest of the mods don't care.



Don't care? are you serious? I hope they care about their lives and not babysitting a bunch of nutbags that have to spread their hat and insanity.
If they didn't care you and everyone else here wouldn't have a forum to post to.
Ignore feature, karma feature, who the hell needs that nonsense....

You don't like a forum, don't go in it, you don't like someone clogging up the forums don't respond and don't start another thread to mock their behavior becuase....guess what...then you are just like the people you despise.

This could easily turn into a WP thread, that was not my intention but who needs a Nanny State here on the ABB website? NOT ME.
