Can you all please go beat the dead horse where it belongs? I have to keep bumping up my happiness thread and Tony's Hep C thread and all the threads about the music topics here. The Beacon is just around the corner and the AG forum should be filled with good things. It is supposed to be about life and love and the ABB. The web site here picks up a lot of new members around Beacon time and I would not think it to be a very friendly place if I were coming here for the first time expecting to get into some discussions about the ABB and found this forum.
As the forum Angel I am asking you all to please bring this bashing to another place or just let it go altogether. It is not fair to the rest of us around here that are trying to keep the happy family vibe going.

That would work also. I just want the peace back around here. The music talk and the joking around with friends where we all know we are kidding and no ones feelings get hurt.

I think that's what I have been saying all along. Thank you Pam for putting it in words that I haven't been able to find.

I know that I have backed off of posting and coming here because they're just not enough people sharing their knowledge. There's too much fighting and posturing. How often do you see the Capt.' posting, or Carlos or SBC. I think people are turning away because of the "Tone" of the forum. It's not that people shouldn't disagree and everyone should skip along like we're on our way to the emerald city. The over politicizing and insults don't demonstrate that the crowd here is friendly...Although most are. I'm with Cliff, take to PM's or just give each other a call and have it out in private and get on with it. Let's get back to the music. I'm sure there's a political form somewhere on the web where everyone can use all of thier disparaging remarks against each other…Go there.

Thanks Pam for tryin' to keep the peace

Your welcome goldtop and Cliff. Good to know I have people backing me on this.

Lammie you are probably right about that.

I personally have support for both opinions here. Agreed, lengthy disagreements may be better served to be taken up as PMs; however users who assume multiple user identities to intentionally cause havoc and arguements intentionally, raise a significant issue as well.

I would urge that perhaps the site- OP would be so kind and look into banning permanently a user's IP; after possibly 2 warnings... (Just a suggestion).

Lately, and I won't say perfectly, but pretty much, I have been keeping the political stuff in the WP - that's where it belongs - and the fun stuff in the AG forum.

I think it is extremely important that we have political discussions, though, b/c one of the things that ties us as ABB fans is our shared concern for the world around us - Duane had this concern, all the Brothers do, and that is just as much a part of this community as the music itself. We need to spread this concern and our generally peaceful solutions to each other and to others out of the community - and the site here helps us connect to do that.

But petty personal stuff - that's sillyness that shouldn't be anywhere - so all of us should heed Pam's request on that - and do keep the political stuff in the WP as I will continue real hard to try to do.

Pam, I'm glad that you are looking out for us. I posted a couple of months ago on one of the threads that it should be on the Whipping Post and not here. Anything Goes is the place where good vibes and interesting discussion about the music should be. Any mean negativity or if anyone wants to bash someone , it should be done in the Whipping Post and not here. I am sorry to say that this forum has gained a reputation of mean spirited people being here.

Thanks Pam for being the forum angel.

I agree also Pam. I may not always follow my own advice. Just look up a couple of posts to see why. I honestly can handle anything said about me or to me. I think I just get bothered when I see others bashed. I guess trying to stop the bully as people should do. But I hate the bad vibes also. PMs are the solution as has been said many times. Let's face it though this is all based on one individual. Many of us are to blame but it all comes from the root.

I am with Billy_Kane also. I would accept the judges ruling. Maybe they don't like being in that position but I feel this is just total disrespect for someones' hard labor.

I have said my piece and will let it rest out of respect for all of you.

Thanks Pam -

There's nothing wrong with spirited disussions but I avoid the "tinkling contests" at all costs - Life is toooooooooo short!

Thanks again Pam!

PS - the arguments can be "buried" by the MT thread over in WP-land

My hat's off to you, too, Pam. That's why I just lurk a lot, rather than posting.

Thanks to everyone that has posted here.
I hope anyone who has negative energy around the forum can find a way to do something good with all the energy they seem to have. Turn it into something positive. Start a forgiveness thread. Stop the hatefulness. Don't let anyone get you down no matter what they did in the past. As Bobo has said life is too short. Please don't waste it letting hate consume your heart.

Hey now Pammy -

You are the best! Thank you so much for being the Forum Angel.

These are difficult times now with war about to begin in a few weeks or days, but there is no excuse for polluting any forum but Whipping Post with views for or against. No one's opinion will be changed by anything posted or read here. If venting is required, then WP is the place to do it. If it gets personal, then PMs are the answer. After all, they are called PERSONAL messages ...

Please keep in mind that this the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND Web site. The Beacon run starts in less than a week. The first new studio album in many years will be released shortly thereafter. Don't we have enough to talk about?

Hey, how about that fantastic new issue of Hittin' the Note?

Or those that ordered the Donna Hopkins CD, how do you like it?

War is important. I wish it weren't happening. But there is a place to talk about it and it's not here.

Pam, I don't really know you, but I do support your thread, and your mission to keep the forum sane and positive. When I first came to the forum it was just plain mean, and actually a lot meaner than I've seen lately. And I think the junk between me and Bob has played out. I regressed and let my self go again. Bob has been at me for a while now. And I don't mind a spat once in a while, but it should not involve everyone else, and it should not consume the forum, nor should it go on for days. And Pms would be the better way to fight. But unfortunately, sometimes people want a spectacle. I guess I am a smartass, and I think that is and has been exposed. I am not really hiding who I can be at times. I really was not deceiving others by being civil. Really, I get tired, way tired, of all of that garbage myself. This latest war, which involved many people, it was embarrassing. So, once again Pam, we need you, the forum angel, positive vibes, and redirection. Thanks for the sanity.

Hooray for Pam!
I think this particular thread demonstrates how the majority of the forum dwellers feel about infighting among family members.
If you feel the need to be mean, do it behind the "curtains", not out in public. Or at least, keep debates on a civil level. Nothing wrong with disagreeing with each other on stuff. Keep it kind.

Amen.

I hardly post. I don't think many of you really know me, but I know most of you because I read in here everyday. I've just been posting more frequently, but I didn't for years because everytime I did, someone would have to take my excitement for the ABB and turn it upside down. In fact I was just thinking of not posting again for a while, but this thread made me really happy. I'm a long time fan of the band and I get CRAZY with excitement for them, and I love to be able to share that. Especially when we can chat about the music. And that in and of itself if so exciting and peaceful.

I agree. The crazy stuff should be relegated to the WP. Beacon is coming, a new album out, Dickey touring again including during Jazzfest in New Orleans, my article/interview with Billy Joe Shaver will make the cover of the next GRITZ in April and Billy talks about hanging with Dickey, that his son Eddy had a guitar of Duane's, Derek and Warren will do many amazing things in the future, Bonnaroo will be huge this year, much good stuff.

Even though the ABB plays at larger uptown venues these days, I still drive past the old building here in Cincy where I first saw them play in 1973. I was 4 years old.
