Is that something that people are willing to accept? What someone consider banter, funny, etc. someone else may not.

Can all in this thread actually handle that? That includes, Jazzy, FJ, Ox and the rest. Can every say yes or no that they can actualy handle that?
I understand offences need to be taken on a case by case. As a thread unfolds, it usually becomes apparent who the antagonist is as trouble erupts. As stated many times above, the invested members of this site are adults with a good deal of tolerance and patience. A thick skin.
This shouldn't be confused with spirited arguing, or calling someone out on something. I remember @bladeracer putting some very blunt posts out there and me thinking someone would be offended. A couple were. But most of us understand that bladeracer is something of a legend, although he would never admit that. With a bit of investment in this site and his posts, it quickly becomes apparent how extremely knowledgeable he is. I give him all the leeway he wants, because he doesn't mean one shred of ill will, and he's normally right.
I'd like to put a word in for the ladies that used to be regular posters. I've since talked to two of them, and both said they weren't happy with the response to their complaints of tasteless sexual posts directed at them. Usually a gender insult. So guess what? They leave. I like having female members here, and I think it's ok to be a little more strict about enforcing those types of cases. We claim to be adults, and most of us are gentlemen as well. But hurling out a gender based insult after you've had a couple beers, or meds, or whatever some people do, isn't ok.
Rules are rules, I get that. But we're not in a vacuum, this is far from a perfect world.
I wouldn't want the job of mod or admin, and I appreciate how delicate it can be at times. That said, I would like to give credit where it's due and extend a tip of the hat to them for being the enforcers when it is needed. I'm sure a lot of decisions made about banning or discipline were good for the forum in the long run.

We have a great kickstart here, let's roll with it!
Party on Garth!!!

Re: What's happened to the .Org!

I'm feeling so much better in myself after being a bit depressed for the last few years and that is because I feel part of something and that I am contributing to something/someone other than my life (my son comes first obviously, my greatest achievement) . Being a biker isn't just about freedom it's about being proud of being able to do something that not all people can do, most people can learn to drive a car but not all can dance with the devil.

The .Org! means a lot to me that's why I PAY to be here as I want to keep it going, something Bladeracer and I always strived to impress upon people.

Re: What's happened to the .Org!

I've been back on the .Org! for a few days now and I've just noticed the lack of DAILY new people in Introductions...where is everyone, it's so damn quiet here.
Ha! before it was a full time job for us lot welcoming in the new members everyday, doing good deeds for the .Org!
Such a shame that things aren't going so well, but nothing is impossible and I'm sure we can get a good vibe for this place again

Re: What's happened to the .Org!

0330 here on the east coast of the states. Got out of work at midnight, hopped in the cage and drove 3 hours to my paradise in New Hampshire. Golf at noon, so off to bed for a quick 6 hours.

Enjoy the day lads!

Me too, but I have a reason because my distance glasses I have to put on my head if I'm within a meter of someone as they start to blur a little and my reading glasses are separate.

Re: What's happened to the .Org!

Whilst I await for my question to be answered by the admin Lan Brown as to what I have done that is inappropriate etc (see earlier post)

I have another question for Lan Brown you came into this thread and started giving some of the guys a hard time, considering the fact that I am quite capable of interpreting what people are saying and separating exaggeration from the truth plus the fact that YOU have actually jacked my thread by bickering with other members with a headmaster type of conversation with teenagers how long ago did these issues that you mention with them actually happen ? ? Because some of those names you mentioned are from years ago aren't they ? Problems you want to discuss with individuals should be done via Private Message and not by spoiling someone's thread, take a moment to think about what I've said and don't start going on about the rules to me, I know what the rules are, do you think I made nearly 21,000 posts without being a little bit too cheeky and being told about it, which as it happens always happened by Private Message.
