    Default What happened to this place?

    I know we don't need another thread about nothing here but man the last two or three weeks has been about the worst since I have been here.

    Every since Mikey's interview and EVH's picture, this place has broken out into a very hostile place.

    It used to be Dave vs Sam or VH3 was a horrible album.

    Now its Dave vs Sam for changing VH's sound, Dave's radio show, Mikey is God and EVH is evil, EVH is God and everybody else is evil, EVH looks like he is Gollum, no he is healthy, etc.

    Every thread it seems to turn into a nasty argument.

    Its like when the Roth Army was down for two days, they infected this place with their hate.

    I have been guilty of it too therefore took some steps back. Now that I am back its like wow.

    Lets get back some civility.

    Ok fire away....

    it's pretty bad..I've been coming here for years, I've had a few different user names..I've never seen it this bad either..it's like if you say "Dave" or "Sam" it's a war, does not matter what was said but you better be ready for a war...

    People have made this place far more than just a place to hang out it seems. Some are making it their personal soapbox, and when you try to knock them off they take it personally.

    Yes I was just talking to TT about this exact thing, and we totally agreed this place has just become a breeding ground of venom and hate, and I'm to the point where I can't tolerate it much longer. It's one thing to be angry at the band, it's another to be miserable to each other, and that's what this place has become, and it's becomming everything I never wanted this place to be when I started it 6 1/2 years ago. I don't care what the band is doing, but there is no reason for the members of this site to be treating each other the way they are.

    So something is going to be done very soon, and frankly I don't care what a censorship dick people want to call me afterwards. I'm sick of worrying about what assholes on other sites say about me. Screw 'em, 99% of them have never tried to run one of these places, so it's easy to sit and judge without any understanding, bunch of know-it-alls. So with that said, if people can't start acting like adults with each other, I'm banning, that's the end of it. I don't care who you are, how long you've been here, how much money you've donated. If you are going to be one of the sources of misery on here, I'm done with it. Like I said, I don't care who you are, I'll happily refund your donation, and then show you the door.

    If I don't see that's doing anything, and this place stays this miserable, angry haven, I'll just close the site down for a while. Maybe it'll permanent, maybe it won't be, but I'll just close it off for a while, and everyone can take a break. Or fuck go to one of the other sites that thrives on this angry, bitter horseshit. I'm tired of it, so obviously I've noticed it.

    So everyone better start thinking about making this place enjoyable to visit, and for others to join, or simply, you, or it won't be around anymore. Again, I don't care what the band is doing, or saying. It should have no bearing on how we treat each other. Basically, everyone needs to grow the up.

    I agree with everything posted thus far. I've only noticed it with a few posters here lately tho. I've learned to steer clear of a few posters here b/c it's like talking to the wall, the only view is their own.
    I'd hate to see this place shut down b/c of that tho. It's become a nice place to hang with the exception of the few posters who find it necessary to trash the place.

    What was that old Osmonds song again with the bad apples??

    It's just a general note to everyone, I'm not trying to scare everyone, well maybe a little. There are a few obvious troublemakers who will be gone very soon, people who think the board is here to serve their own personal agendas.

    The ignore button is also a great resource people don't take advantage of.

    I try to be proactive in the sense that I don't take the 'bait' from the a-holes around here. If things get nasty, I simply withdraw myself from the equasion. Life's to short to put up the shit. I got better people to hang with around here...

    Right on Brett!!

    I use to love to come to this site for learning new things about "the band that is the soundtrack of my life" ( I know it's a cliche, but very true) And when you post anything even remotely controversial you get Ummm I'll leave the names out, you know who you are popping in and just trashing the original post which I don't mind if it's done properly with good points. This site should be here for debate on topics( nice and adult like) band news and all kinds of cool stuff. Let's all grow up starting immediately!!!!!!!!!!!

    Brett, By the way I appreciate your time, money and effort to make this site what it is so if this doesn't get corrected you do what you got to do bud!

    Very well said, Brett. I agree 100%. I hardly ever go to any of the VH forums on this board anymore because of all the crap. It's time for a good spring cleaning around here. It's your board, and you can censor whatever the hell you want to censor. If people have a problem with it, show 'em the door.
