Wow I missed the party yesterday! Great posts people. :wink

Nice to see a rally here. :highclap: :cheers: :freebird:




So it appears that that you want less enforcement of the rules. If that is what is wanted that can be tried but I have two questions. The second question will come later, but here is the first question. With less enforcement means that at times people are not going to be happy with what others have to say. 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!!!

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.

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 :dance:

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!

I do that all the time! :eek:
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.

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.

I have spoken with a moderator of this forum about his thread and how Lan Brown started jacking the thread after a very innocent conversation had been started, with accusatory arguments at members which was not necessary and I was also implicated in this huge swell of law breaking members, most of whom are subscribing members.

I think the guy was miles out of order so because the moderator doesn't see or quite simply can't see what I was explaining to him then I am going to take a few days or weeks away from the .Org! to enjoy my holiday with my son, and then decide if I'm going to bother returning.

I loved this place and I helped to generate a very positive community feeling but some people just want to take that away. I was 39 when I first posted on here, I'm 48 now and a lot of very bad things have happened in my life and aged me terribly, so I most definitely don't think the same as I did all those years ago. You need to know who someone is before you SLAM them.

Jazzy your loyalty to the .org does not go unnoticed....trust me friend:wink.....enjoy your holiday with your son but please check in from time to time, I am still waiting for a few answers in relation to the direction this thread took but Brown has disappeared possibly on holidays or otherwise, I will reserve judegement until I speak with him, privately.

As far as me being a greenie again I tried to input my c.c. Quite a while ago and the site turned into a myriad of Chinese messages so I backed off and didn't bother again for fear of being compromised, even though it is only a nominal amount of money I will subscribe again if things have been sorted with the mod. We are taking the boys away mid august for some family time and hopefully things will be resolved before then.

Jazzy, it has been a treat to have you and a few others around as well as the usual crew, enjoy your time with the little man and talk soon, and don't forget my boy Jondog is in talks to bring some of our respected and beloved female friends back, things could be looking up!!!!!:hyper::hyper::pointup::pointup:
