DM, I'm not sure why you are going around posting angry or provocative posts in old threads, or threads which don't even interest you - and what you hope to achieve by that - and although I previously said I would no longer try and reason with you... for the slim chance that you are not aware of your actions, as advice from one human being to another - cut it out.
Now, none of us know what's going on in your private life but you can't go around writing personal attacks or provoking people on a public forum without repercussions. It doesn't take a genius to work out that before too long either everyone will add you to their foe list, or a moderator will step in - or both.
This forum is a place where like-minded people get to hang out. Yes, mainly to talk about music and the guitar but also to kick back and talk about ANYTHING - especially in the Cafe section.
Yes, some approach replies with humour, some not, but that's because we are all individual. It would be the same in a group situation in the real world. You cannot go around telling people that they are not allowed humour, or that they have to reply to your threads in a certain way or you'll block them, or that they have to like this music or that book etc. We are all different.
This community works because we ARE all individual.
What we have in common here though, is common courtesy. In the same way you wouldn't dare provoke or "bully" RoryJohn or others in real life like you're doing on here (as I'm sure you'd get far more than you bargained for), nor should you do so here.
Now, I'm all for wiping the slate clean and starting again. So if you want to do that then great. At the very least you need to apologise to certain people, either publicly or privately and then we can all move on. If not, if you really want to continue trying to bring down this forum by posting something nasty in every thread you don't like the look of, then as I said previously, it won't take long for a moderator to step in.
Take a step back. There's so much to like about this forum and it's a fantastic resource and sounding board. Let's keep it that way. What say you?
Negative, I am a meat popsicle.
