I've been thinking about this for awhile. There used to be some diverse musical discussion here , Now it seems the ODR is the only one offering anything different. It seems that most threads get ignored unless if they say how great Derek & Warren are and that Dickey is a drunk.

There's no such thing as civil disscusion in the poli threads but then there are no poli threads about actual issues and policy ideas. It's all about name calling, and it seems it's OK to call one group names but not another as evidenced by my pointing someone who used redneck, hillbilly and hoosier woman in posts. Nobody else jumped up and said hey, that's wrong.

I've come back from my week without power and there are a bunch of new people here just to stir stuff up. And I can't believe some of you take their bait.

I'm really starting to see why a lot of my old friends from here don't come around anymore.

Speaking for myself, I find the discussions quite informative, comical, and entertaining all at the same time. I try and ignore the personal stuff and name calling for the benefit of the learning process (and I have learned a great deal about many things by visiting this site). Does it get frustrating and difficult to weed through the crap at times? Absolutely....But in the end, it's just a website. With a simple click, it all goes away.

But if we all leave then these "trolls" win. I do hear what you are saying though. Luckily for me being Canadian takes all the emotions out of your political debates.

To me, there are still plenty of great people around here and always something to make me think, laugh or learn from someone. I hope that some of our old friends one day return.

Hope you will be waiting with the rest of us.

Guilty as charged. How can you resist Doom. It is like the Dark Side of the Force in Star Wars. Wait till Spiral finds out that I am his Father.

Plus I use all of you to learn about American politics. Now you can understand my failing grade on the subject.

Can't wait for an American election so we can get some political threads going.

I know what you're saying.

I never listen to talk radio the people make me angry but last week I listened to some due to having only a radio for entertainment. It was just like the WP, people blaming somebody else for their problems and slinging mud and name calling at people they didn't agree with.

I have enough things to worry about in my life without all this BS

Check out the no blame zone and the Arizona tea threads....there are a couple of other ones that are addressing issues without the name calling.....you'd be a welcome addition.

Hey man, its just all opinions whether talk radio, TV or any other medium including this forum. Just don't take them so seriously and if it gets personal walk away from the thread and remember, opinions are like A&*Hol%$s and every one has one!

Just because I like to sit in my striped spandex pants while I do my hair and makeup, that is no reason to mock my video selections.

Trixster Rules!

well, only you can answer that Bill...i tend to stay out of the WP...this site HAS taught me that there are a lot of folks that have a lot of courage when they are typing but in person they lack courage and character....so i take them with a grain of salt...but...
when they disrespect the wishes of the people that run the site, i do get upset

i think your pictures have made a lot of people feel good...that, i hope is reason enough to keep you here

I wonder why I come here sometimes, too, Bill. Especially after I've been gone for awhile, like you have, and come back and it is all the same old sh*t, over and over. I know I'm as guilty as anyone about playing a little rough in here, but I wish we'd calm it down some.

I came to this site for the music. I learned a lot of stuff from some very helpful people. I have made some great friends, some friends for life.
But sadly a lot of the friends I made that helped me along with the music aspect of this site are gone because of the trolls, takers and users.

The WP is a diversion for me not the reson I'm here.

There are a precious few threads left on this site that aren't infected with trolls and trouble makers.
If it wasn't for my friends here, I would prolly be gone.

If it is something that you feel you might find offensive, don't go there. If it looks OK and it turns ugly, get out. Nobody reads every thread, I doubt anyone except an old retired guy would have the time. Oh wait...




I've pretty much stopped looking at those threads. But many times you have a whole page threads that are McCains too old Palin's to young Obama's too inexperienced Obama's a muslim/no he's not.

I'm tired of seeing all that crap to go to the MT, College football or my photo thread. I'm with coot as far as moving the next MT.

Lefty, I don't know if you ever saw the post that Bill Ector made in my photo thread, but that's why I keep it going

Politics hit the MT? I missed that. That sucks.
