    Ah, well. I tried.

    I remember years ago, Non-Music was a fun diversion in the day. The stories were quirky and funny. When a major event would happen, of course, we'd have a thread about it.

    Today it's a depressing morgue of race-baiting, antisemitism, gay bashing, murder, shootings and violence. Worse, it seems controlled by the same handful of people starting depressing thread after depressing thread, but all with the same themes (we need six threads of people screaming about gun-control?)

    I'm as anti-censorship as they come, so I won't recommend anything like limiting the number of threads a person can start, but I will put this out there: If you find yourself scouring the web for yet another story of a black kid beating his school principal, or about a gay group "ruining" a laundromat, or about poor people destroying America, just so you can copy it and paste it back here, you might ask whether the story will lend itself to a healthy discussion, or whether it's you trying to prove a point. If it's the latter, maybe consider taking a day off.

    If you need me, I'll be in the beautiful girls thread.

    Oh! Here's more on Orville Rogers, for those interested. He has five rules for running forever, but I'll bet if you think about them you could apply them to any part of your life:

    I know what you mean

    I actively tried to come up with some interesting thread topics and I came up with

    "50000 feral dogs run abandoned in Detroit"
    "11 signs you might be dating a sociopath"
    "fishermen overcome by rotting fish gas in Maine"
    "RIP Elmore Leonard"
    a piece about "Bronies" convention ... which is whacky dudes who get aroused by My Little Pony
    and a super spooky eyeless Cat Puppet singing Journey



    I went with the feral dogs story

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Daisy, what are the odds of creating an arts and entertainment forum? Non-Music used to fit the bill, but now it's just completely overrun with hard news items.

    +I usually only need 4 signs to recognize a sociopath.

    As an avid runner/ half marathoner, I am quite familiar with Mr Rodgers, and he certainly is an inspiration to myself and a lot of runners I know. And I second the idea of creating a arts and entertainment forum. Non can be smothering sometimes.

    IMO, I don't think anything will change here...especially the modding of it all. It's a 'free for all' for now. The mods are just different colored nick-names and are just as disgusted as the usual linker. It's not anyones fault though. Voivod and bklnboy can post non-stop until they are blue in the face (I think voivod is actually a smurf by now). Y'all respond and it keeps going and going etc... See how it works now?

    This sounds like you're saying the inmates are running the asylum.

    I hate to stick my thumb in the fan blades, but... is the mod list even accurate anymore in some forums?

    I'm against censorship as well. I'm not saying anyone should stop posting anything. That's why I think a separate forum like 47 suggested, is a good idea.

    It's far from a free for all. I am the only active designated mod here in non and I do read every thread.....you have the option of clicking off, or using ignore, but I try to read every word that is written here. Try that on for size. Not that I'm complaining, I knew what I signed up for, but you have no idea how hard it is to balance the right to free speech with the desire to keep this place from becoming a crap hole. I don't want to just go deleting posts that "I" think are offensive opinions...cause that's just my opinion (although I did one the other day)

    there are some people around here who are so hard nosed about their beliefs that they just don't want to listen to any side of any argument or appreciate that there may be another valid opinion. Everything is a FACT with them and I don't know why they even post...it's not a conversation with them, it's an opportunity to lecture....and frankly I finished college, I don't need a lecture..so I get it why some around here are frustrated


    There are some around here that would start an argument about anything and I mean anything But I'm finding that in most of the forums I belong to not just here.

    part of the problem is that we are not getting a lot of threads posted except on political hot button topics ....I swear to God it's like hanging out at the VFW with my grumpy Uncle

    I'd rather have a separate forum for politics ( and crime) and leave non as a forum for everything else

    Some mods are very busy people. They can't be here 24/7. I respect every mod past and present. It's not up to them to make changes to forum categories etc. Brett obviously wants to give the most recent and accurate VH news and have a decent time on his own site. Whatever he decides what changes need to be made to this great website, goes. Period. It's his site.

    I don't think censorship is what is going on...maybe a bit more moderating would help...but then certain ones bitch about censorship. The circle...I tell ya!! LOL. It's true.

    I have every reason and right to know exactly what you're "moderating". Seenbad and I used to Mod this forum a while back. How much hate mail have you got lately? I still get some from some folks...I do agree that some folks think that their opinion is FACT and nothing else matters...but you shouldn't think that some people on here have no clue how your moderating job is.
    Just go for it!
