... is at an all-time low. I have had it with people who know better calling names and then getting upset that I deleted their posts.

Here's it in a nutshell:

BE POSITIVE OR BE GONE.

I'm not kidding- one more person calls someone a name and I'm recommending that you don't belong on here and your account gets deleted. I don't know how else to say this, but if you feel so strongly about a statement that you have to call names or post hate or put something in your signature that you think we're not going to notice, then frankly, you don't belong on here.

Go play your guitar and amp if you're that ticked off... and anyone who may be offended by this, well, you clearly don't belong on here.

Thank you for your cooperation, and forum members who post positive and productive, sorry you have to put up with this idiocy...

So sorry you had to step up and say this Billy. This is still the best forum going IMHO so let's all try to keep it that way.

You have my sympathy, I know this must be anything but fun for you.
But I'm glad you took that step so as to make the forum whole.

Hey!! WTF??? I just spent 20 minutes writing out a really well thought out comment about this whole thing and what do ya know? The whole thread was deleted!!!

Guess What?
I didn't die, nobody else died....nothing happened.
Lets get over ourselves people.

I have never seen any other forums where people that have never even met are such good friends.
When Billy and I talk about the people on this forum it's as if we've been hanging out with most of you for years.

Lets not ruin this.

My kids are pretty limited to where they can go on the web, but I wouldnt hesitate to let them ask questions or read through threads on this one, knowing its safe, positive informative, and regulated.

I dont know you Billy, but good job, sometimes you have to pull the trigger.

Yeah, thanks for that Billy; I think we needed a reminder. (that sounds sarcastic, I know, but it isn't)

Ha ha ha ha!

I want to see the picture that happened right after this was taken- when the big cat mauled that guy!

Thanks for the support you guys- I really appreciate it!

I can't get over how some people think something they wrote was "a joke" but when you see it in print, out of context, it just doesn't look like a joke.

That and I've had two people email me ticked off because I "emailed them at home" when it's the email address they used to sign up for the forum. Sheesh...
