    So far, I've had mixed feelings about the
    Pleasure Dome discussion board. It's nice to find new people to bounce ideas off of. My big problem is that there are too many posts where someone is calling someone else an asshole. I can't stand weeding thru dumb posts on a good topic. At least here at vhlinks, that stuff doesn't happen as much,
    if at all. Here, we care about the band and have respect for other members (with some exceptions, ie. Whatti). Hopefully Brad and some of the moderators will try and rid 'the Dome' of some of the pests.
    Thumbs up to www.vhlinks.com!!!

    Well..... I did call someone a fookin freak
    over there.....but it had at least 3 assholes
    talking about Dave using a banana in his pants

    IMO....it's not very organized yet....and
    Brad would be wise to boot the trouble makers
    off sooner rather than later
    It's also hard on the eyes

    I love it here.....

    I dunno. Maybe as a Mod here, I should keep this to myself but screw it. I have an opinion too. I was talking to somebody the other night about this and he had a great comment. Its like the negative (photographic) of this site. What's the difference? I think they should have done something (or at least tried) different that separates them from the rest. Its a TOTAL COPY of this! I mean hell, its been done before, and BETTER HERE! Brett has great direction (and choices for mods)and Tim has some very appealing graphics. Goo is like the most level headed dude I've come across on the net. The Mods are all very well suited for there respective forums, and the people that post here are simply the best people and vh fans around. I can see where PD can copy the technical (although I think its a weak suck way to go about it), but they will simply never obtain the kind of class that has developed here. Period. I dont think I'll even go there anymore.

    This is home

    I have to disagree with one thing said here. This place would STILL kick ass without any graphics what so ever. The graphics are just eye candy. The real meat and potatoes is show in Brett's hard work on the UBB. Nobody does it better. Nobody can duplicate his style and class in running a discussion forum. The original can't be beaten, that much is easy to see. So to me, there really is no competition between the two sites because there is no competition to speak of.

    I'm almost ashamed as a Van Halen fan to look at PD. I'd hate to think that Eddie, Alex, and Mike would let that kind of crap get posted to THEIR website, which represents the them. I can see the look on Eddie's face as he reads all those negative posts. Hopefully he doesn't think that's the way all Van Halen fans feel. Cheer up Ed! Lots of love over here for ya.

    As David Lee Roth once said "This is home, the only one I know" Rock on VHF!!

    I forgot to mention that we can actually talk with, and have a good discussion over here with the Webmaster who is a huge fan himself. He'll even tell you that David Lee Roth is back with Van Halen

    There's too much shit you have to sift through over there to get to the good stuff.

    For example, AJW posted a rumor that he heard titled "OK Insiders, shoot this one down" or something like that. AJW's post was interesting, but then that "hitch1969" dumbass posted something stupid about how Ed should start drinking again (which he's done before just to rile people up). The whole thread now is nothing but people calling hitch an asshole, and I think "Whatti" jumped in there too, to top it all off! What a waste....

    Brad needs to kick their asses (and people like them) off that site, or it's going to be mostly garbage.

    It would be sad if Van Halen interpreted some of the stuff on there as being an indicator of what thier fans are like.

    No matter how many Canadians Brett makes into moderators, no matter how many people he bans, and no matter how many threads he closes in the name of Political Correctness, I'll always prefer VHLinks to Josephina's Cupboard, er, Pleasure Dome.

    j/k Brett! Despite the majority of my time being spent at the DLR Army, you are the originator and innovator, and I am absolutely certain you won't have anything to worry about insofar as competition with PD is concerned. Keep up the good work!

    At ease, civilians!

    P.S. It might just be eye candy, but PD can't hold a candle to VHLinks in the graphics category! Rock on TopT!!!

    Hey, C'mon, let me say a couple o' things.

    When I post, it's just an opinion. Don't have to agree with it.

    Pleasure Dome is only a few days old, yes LINKS is better, and YES, 95% of everyone registered over there is from here. Give Brad some time, he'll refine it.

    Brett is one of the coolest motherfuckers out there and I respect him for NOT yanking my account during an incident that he should of. My apologies from that one, bro, I was out of line. And once again, thank you for the opportunity to say that.

    My brothers at the DLRarmy, I love ya!

    Unlike Whatthi, I make no effort to conceal myself or hide behind what I say. Anyone is free to send me an email if I step over your personal line. And I would respond in kind.

    Just my 2. But hey, it's not like I post here a lot? I know my opinions aren CONTRARIAN, and I'm trying to be respectful.

    later...

    Well, Hitch, let me tell ya......you stepped over my "personal line" over there in PD. I'm not about to email you privately about this and allow you to have MY email address. (SoCalChelle here, in case you are too stupid to figure it out by yourself.) Just thought I'd let you know that the crap you're saying to me over there is totally out of line. As a matter of fact, 99% of what you've said over there just proves what a Neanderthal you really are. Honestly, I've tried to see things from your perspective but I can't seem to get my head that far up my ass.
