Mike Blakesley said:I don't see any great need to lock it...it certainly isn't the first thread to go off track. It's already been suggested by a couple of people that other topics should be started in their own thread. If we locked up every thread to go away from its initial post, the forum would be fulla locked threads!
Agreed. As N can tell you, I've gotten the(IMO, grossly unfair! )reputation at certain boards for hijacking threads. I merely like to 'spice them up' on occasion, or when the opportunity presents itself....
Now, I enjoy fun'n'games as much as the next guy. Ok, more than the next guy! And, IMO, there is no harm in having a little fun.
What bugs me is when someone comes into a thread to dump on someone or something...then I tend to get....well, not happy! I've been around too long to lose my temper, but the thing is, if someone wants to start a thread titled 'My Least Favorite TJB tunes,' of course who would have a problem with that? But do it there, not in a thread about getting us some reissues many of us crave.
As for discussing A&M music seriously, we do! Often! What more can anyone ask for? But it's done with TLC, friendship, good vibes, and genuine constructive criticism. I don't hang at forums where any kind of bashing is business as usual. I'm too old for that crap, and I know most here feel the same...except they're probably younger than I am! :goofygrin:
