Hear hear!

 

I'm not taking a pot at Joe.  I thank him for providing us with a free service and respect him for trying to maintain a libertarian Rush-like spirit of free speech.

 

But even a biker bar has to have some standards of behaviour, rather than unrestricted xenophobic spamming.

 

Joe, I absolutely LOVE you for your generosity in shouldering The cost of this place, but I wouldn't mind a $5/month fee, ya know?  Some people seem to think they have the freedom to fuck this place up, and I DON'T agree with THAT.  I also don't agree with moderation anywhere NEAR TRF standards, but if someone is attacking you, you just don't let them in your home!  :(

No trace of Trace.  No Lady MacBass.

 

No Nuna.

 

Trace and Nuna are on FARCEbook, I don't know Lady McBass's moniker if she's on FARCEbook....

You ever been to a real biker bar?


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

No, I don't think they exist as such in the UK any more, but I would imagine that they have some sort of honour code- don't chat up my woman, spill my drink, or mess with my ride.

 

So you think CP should have no standards of decent behaviour?

It does.  They're very loose.

Hemi's been suspended for direct personal attacks before.  I would argue that he deserves a permanent ban not because of what he did, but how he responded to the temporary suspension.

That is, he was unrepentant and enshrined the behavior that got him banned in the first place in his sig for a while.  Essentially, daring the mods to come down on him again.  That kind of disrespect for the authority of the place should earn one a boot, because it's Joe's dime that puts us here, and it's the mods' time that keeps the place with what modicum of civility it has (and yes, it's there).

The thing is, I think we're pretty good at self-policing.  Everyone, even those who might agree with some of what Hemi says, denounces his idiocy.  We permit him to speak, and mock his stupid speech.  And, if you're like me and don't feel like listening, there's the "ignore" function.

Sorry to go all 'Merican on you, but this place is one of the greatest examples of the First Amendment in practice I've seen online.  I think that's worth something.

But you Seppoes don't have true free speech any more than Limeys do.

 

Sure, you can say what you like, but you'll lose your liberty in some cases if you do, or a lot of your money.

 

Hemi has even lost his freedom to post here.

We had one up where I live. When I told them I rode a Raleigh I got a good shoeing with a crowbar...

 

There certainly is a need for some naïve new blood round here, I'm losing my Trolling skills :(

At TRF you didn't even need real Trolling skills to Troll, they once locked down the "What are you reading" thread because one of my incarnations said Mein Kampf...

In the real world, no we don't.  But I'm talking about an ideal.

Sure, you can say what you like, but you'll lose your liberty in some cases if you do, or a lot of your money.

Or nothing.  The sphincter is a bit looser.  Sure, speech is never 100% unrestricted.  

Hemi has even lost his freedom to post here.

And then got it back after an appropriate refractory period, with the understanding that he learned a lesson.

I'm really flexible here as are the other mods and admins. If you're here, if you post nearly every day you are a friend and this is our hangout. Personally I want people to get what they want out of being here. Be good to each other and treat people with respect. Sometimes things get heated and someone flies off the handle. Recognize that and tone it down a bit. Apologize if it went too far. Self regulate. We are all adults here.

And of course check your racism at the door.

Like the Zep song says, there is still time to change the road you are on.

 

I hope some of the more 'difficult' peeps here eventually learn to tone it down on their own. That is the only way it really works.

I blame the TG problem on FJ to be honest. He's let Hemi take the place over with all of his bullshit. He should have been banned from TG years ago, and he's only gotten worse. A couple of the new members have been mostly trolls as well, with no warnings or anything given.

 

I'm not sure how you can blame FJ when he runs the place pretty much exactly the same way Julie and Ken ran it.  Nothing has really changed from the "old days" -- as long as it's not a personal attack, pretty much anything goes.  Hemi was just as active and vocal (and peeps bitched about him just as much) when K&J owned the joint.

CP is a shell of its former self because

 

A.  the board has been erased at least 2 times now, with multiple threads and shit gone for good.  Sure, it was all (for the most part) useless internet jibber jabber, but those topics were the roots of the community, so to speak.  People get disenchanted with forums when everything is deleted and you have to start over.

 

B. the band is not touring and hasn't released anything new in quite some time

 

C. people prefer the Facebook experience now, they have other interests, and people just move on with life
