    The 'Tard Barn....Everyone Read!

    Everyone knows this site has really become a breeding ground for a lot of personal, hateful, posts. It's making it tiresome for a lot of people, and it's making it especially tiresome for the staff of the site. We can all share opinions without beating each other up time after time with childish name-calling, etc. It's just been going on too long, and with a tour coming up, we will be having more new people than normal on the site. BTW, saying you are for or against the tour is not the personal BS I am talking about, that's got nothing to do with anything. It's the personal attacks, period. Saying "VH sucks without Dave/Mike/Sam/Gary/Sherman The Dog" is not a personal attack unless you make it one.

    Since banning does no good, nor is it something that I like doing that much, we started a new forum, it's called the "The 'Tard Barn." It's a forum where those that can't work and play with others will spend some time venting, crying, whining, whatever. Frankly we don't care what you do in there, but don't expect us to be too friendly if we post in there. It's VHL purgatory and will be treated as such. The mods can do or say whatever they want in there too. If they feel like deleting your posts....oh well, bye they go.

    Wonder why you can't see this forum? Because only admins, mods, and people who have been banished there will see it. It's not a playground, or a forum dump, it's where those who no longer can function as useful members of the site will spend some time. It's not for everyone to watch like a car wreck, and to get a laugh.

    The first step in this process is a mod (or an admin, or me) will warn you via PM. Then you'll see this new 'Tard Barn forum on the board. And you can't miss it, it's right above the Main VH forums. That's a hint to chill out. You can post in there if you want, or you can simply realize you're getting out of hand and stop being a problem immediately.

    If you continue to be a problem, you're simply going to be banished to that forum for a month. What does that mean? Well it means the only posts you will be making will be in there. And the only people seeing them will be other of your banished tard friends, or the staff. Yes you can read the rest of the board, yes you can send PM's (unless you abusing that and we get wind of it), yes you can change your avatar, etc. But you won't be posting ANYWHERE but that tard board. If you're a Premium Member, well you lose access to those forums completely too for a month (not that anyone really uses them anyway). I don't really care if you read them, but it's too much work to assign more permissions to allow you to do it, and if you're being a problem, why would I waste the time?

    That's pretty much it. We're hoping people don't see this as a badge of honor, because it's not. It's stupid and not a part of the board you should be proud to see. So let's attempt to keep the place more civil, and have lively debate without shit-driving every thread with personal BS. It's tired, and we're sick of it. If the mods had their way, all the troublemakers would be banned in two seconds, believe me. This was our compromise.

    Thank you.

    I'll vouch for that compromise statement. I've got a list of about 5 people that know who they are that would be banned in a military heartbeat if I had access to the button.

    I'll say this: If you go there, it won't be a good time. If you go there, you are officially a punk ass. I would honestly love to see nobody ever go there, I'd like it to be like the good ole' days where people were pretty much instant contributors to a good online community, but if you do, you are a punk ass. There are a few people who will never be able to stay away from it. Tour's gonna suck for you if you were looking forward to having dialog about it. I could care less.

    Seems to me it's a bit of a redundant step in the process of an eventual ban or a fade into obscurity, though I suppose the 'humiliation' aspect might add some amusement factor to the moderators' already thankless jobs.

    You guys might save yourselves some time and just boot me and Ford in there ASAP. I suspect that's inevitable, since it's virtually a guarantee both he and I attract and create the sort of attention a 'Tard Barn might warrant. Though I still don't believe I rate at the level of legend the great and powerful Oz does. Tard Barns, Sheep Pens, and Hitch Worlds, oh my. The flotsam and jetsam, the criminals and vagabonds and riff raff of the VH online community.

    Steel cage match, gloves off, private invitation only, our overlord mods get to throw tomatoes and rotten eggs at will...whaddya say Ford? We can talk BCE, 9-11 conspiracies, Velveeta recipes, and the finer points of Van HALEN black magic creative core juju, all the while being pelted and whipped by jeering mods and admins, much like the Christians and the lions at the coliseum in ancient Rome. We'll be the bucket cleaners of the Links vomitorium.

    Brr...think of it. Spending the whole VH 4 tour in a locked cyber room with only Ford and the occasional passing-through aliasing troll to talk to.

    It is VHLinks purgatory.

    Still...forbidden fruit and all that.

    I figured you'd try and immediately turn it in to a kind of martyrdom/gamish scenario that it isn't. I understand the reason for that too. You flowered it up more than what I imagined though.

    It's not flowery though. It's a place for ass wipes. Period. Hopefully people can come out with a little better appreciation for the board and can somehow manage to become a contributor to the community instead of a detriment. If not, that's up to Brett what happens next. Point is though, if anybody goes there, they truly are an asswipe.

    I suppose if I say this is the gayest thing to hit a VH board since the $tark$ Karma Point system, I would be the first inmate?

    It's the perfect system FORD. Troublemakers are still here and we don't have to read it. Couldn't ask for anything better. Had the official site done this instead of their retarded Karma shit, the place would have been better off.

    The only situation I could see where that kind of thing would work, is for some kind of organized attack like the Herpie & Assrimmie trolls. And even then, they would still be sucking up all the bandwidth with their shit, even in one forum. But for an emergency holding cell until you could ban all their IP's, it might work.
