Thread: Whipping Posts, Playpens, Good Guys and Bad Guys...

Rowland - 11/6/2008 at 09:58 PM

Well, I was writing a nice flowery note saying how much we love the extended family and how sorry it makes us to see people attacking each other on this forum, but I kicked the off switch on the power strip to the computer and lost the post. By the time I rebooted, the playpen was already full of people who seem to like calling each other names... so I'm actually laughing instead of getting mawkish about this. I'm not entirely sure where to go with this now, it's your time and if you want to spend it beating on each other, that's your choice. I just want a segregated place to put posts and people who enjoy that sort of thing.

The Whipping Post was created as a place to beat a dead horse, not each other. In the first ten years of running allmanbrothersband.com, we probably banned two or three people. But lately there has been a barrage of daily requests to ban this guy or that guy, and everyone from newbies to people with lots of stars after their user names engage in personal attacks that raise the hair on the back of my neck. Banning people is fairly pointless, as you have all seen it can be an endless cycle. I can remove you and all your posts with one mouse click, so the good news for me is it is less work to delete someone than it is for that someone to create a new account, but if someone is determined enough they can do it. And you can ban IP addresses but someone with only a moderate amount of skill, or even luck, can get around that. This is the Internet folks, and it brings out both the best and the worst in people.

So... we're not going to sit here and read every thread and play Forum Police. But we have a new tool at our disposal to use when we see fit - if people want to act like two year olds, and apparently a number of people find that an attractive idea ;-), we will move the threads to that forum. And if people act exclusively like two year olds, they may find themselves restricted to posting in the Playpen.

If you want to set your sites a tad higher, check out the other forums. If you want to talk about something controversial or that most people have tired of discussing, put it in the Post. Post something way over the line, it will be removed and we will remove you and your reincarnations should we feel like doing so. Yes, it is somewhat arbitrary. That's life.

We hope that most of you come here because you enjoy it and you enjoy each other. We know many, many people have made friends and even partners for life through this community. We want to keep that good vibe. But in any community of this size, there will be a wide range of personalities and we'll do our best to figure out how to keep the peace.

Hit your note, whatever it is...

Rowland and Lana

Already been there, posted in the "Name Calling Thread". Posted the word "Puddinhead". Not to anybody, I just wanted to have the fun of being one of the first to post in a new forum.

Right on.


alanwoods - 11/6/2008 at 10:04 PM

Fine with me, kind people. It is the internet. So, the anonymity allows people that are inclined to act in certain ways to do so. You and Lana go way above for us, some that are way less deserving than others.

Thank you and know that YOU are loved.


lolasdeb - 11/6/2008 at 10:05 PM

Thanks, Lana and Rowland!


PhotoRon286 - 11/6/2008 at 10:10 PM

I think the name calling thread should be topped.

It's gonna be popular.






























Heh heh.


BigDaveOnBass - 11/6/2008 at 10:25 PM

Speaking only for myself, a lot of people find the anonymity of the internet appealing because they can get things off of their chest and unburden themselves, be it pent up frustration with a co-worker, an employer, an aggravating family member, etc. Who better to take it out on than someone they don't know personally, someone from an internet discussion forum. Well, it is the internet.

BUT...personally, I have CHOSEN to represent my true self because my path has crossed with literally dozens of folks from this site at shows, festivals, fan gatherings, etc. I have really enjoyed meeting these people and maintaining REAL friendships that have been built, whether they are fledgling or full blown friendships. I care about other people's feelings, and Lord knows I don't like being offended any more than I want to be offensive to someone else. The offensive stuff I read that perhaps irks me, but isn't necessarily directed at me, I tend to ignore. At worst, I'll tell someone to KMA. But most times, I just shake my head in disgust.

Folks, life is way too short to be ugly to each other. Be kind. It's really not that difficult. And it's not too much to ask.

Rowland (and Lana,) I appreciate all that you do for this place. Good luck with this latest endeavor.

Rowland, thanks for your post and your efforts here. They *are* appreciated. That said, I wanted to address this particular statement from you because I think it reaches to the core of the issue. Most of the recent (say in the past 6 months or so) crap has come about from a few well known individuals..you know who they are as you guys have been banning them time after time. Why not be proactive and relegate them to the Playpen at this point? I believe much of the bad stuff would certainly go away at that point. Just my .02

It's just like bans ST, if someone gets confined to the playpen they just get a new account and bam, they can post everywhere again.


Gotcha, ok. Thanks.

Rowland, thanks to you and Lana for all you do.

As to the recent, ahem, events, and I know how hard it is, because I try my best...but in the end, the only way to deal with the issue at hand is to ignore. Troll-baiting is so obvious, especially when done machine-gun style. Hard as it may be, that type of thing we should all try our best to ignore. We all know it when we see it.


Gregallmanfan - 11/7/2008 at 02:50 PM

It may be an imperfect solution, but kudos to Rowland and Lana for running a great site in general, and taking the time to address a problem we've all been trying to deal with.

Thanks to both of you.......

Thanks, Rowland. I think this could be helpful if we really do see offensive threads and posts disappear from the WP, and wind up in the Playpen. Most of us are not trolls, and don't want to come back under a new name, so maybe it will help all of us try to keep it a little more respectful. I hope you are serious about limiting some people to that forum.

TakeMeBWIAB - 11/14/2008 at 07:27 AM

I gotta tell ya's, this thread is hilarious to me. I stop by for the first time since the Jam For Duane to get a load of some pics and maybe some videos, and see Rowlands' post at the top of the list. Ah, what the heck, couldn't hurt to take a peek at what ol' Rowland has to say. And it didn't hurt a bit. I watched his frustration with this kind of thing for more than a decade, and as one who got caught up in his trying to figure out who gets banned for what, who gets reinstated under what circumstances etc., I'm here to tell you that I've never "met" a more patient, always-endeavors-to-do-the-right-thing person before. When I got banned it never occurred to me to question Rowland or Lana about it, and I never did. When I got reinstated after being told that the ban was a mistake, it never occurred to me to demand an explanation, or even ask for one. It's their site and I'm a guest. They can do whatever they want with my "membership" here. After all, they pay the dues for all of us, we don't.

So I read Rowland's post and get a little bit curious about what prompted it, but not curious enough to go searching for the answer myself. I figure if I read the subsequent comments I'll probably get some vague idea of what it's about, and if I don't, I really don't care and I ain't gonna even remember it tomorrow because I never give a second thought about what anyone does with their own property. As soon as I hit "Submit" on this little bit of profundity, it is no longer mine, it's Rowland's and Lana's to do with what they will. Whether it's my oh-so-important musings, or my best friend's or my worst adversary's, none of us has any right or reason to even let it enter our pea-brains that we should have any say-so whatsoever over who gets to say what when or where, or if they get to say anything at all.

So what do I find hilarious about this thread? I see one of the pushiest, sometimes-foul-mouthed posters on the site immediately start telling Rowland what's wrong with his solution. I see another one actually demand to know why Rowland doesn't "...keep banning the people we keep telling you to ban...." I see people who I could point to a hundred of their posts that were put out here for no other reason than to troll for a reaction from someone saying they *aren't* trolls and wouldn't *want* to come back under a different name, which kind of implies to me that, want to or not, they probably don't have the self discipline to stay away if they did get banned.

I just think it's funny. Not everyone who's posted in this thread has gorged themselves on copious amounts of hypocrisy pie, but damn man, some of you guys are too much! Maybe Rowland just wanted to get a couple of things off his chest and doesn't feel the need to hear from the peanut gallery at all in response to it. Did you ever consider that? Obviously not.

Oh well. I always thought this was a self-evident truism so I've never said it out loud, but Rowland, it's your site, do whatever you want to do with it. No, really, that's the extent of my advice for you Rowland, except to say don't worry, be happy, and ignore those who apparently think they know better how you should handle your own property than you do.

Tom S.

If Rowland didn't want conversation on this topic he could have just posted and locked the thread.


Ah, I see. So Rowland posts on his own website and we should all take it as an invitation to tell him he should keep doing what we *keep* telling him to do. Got it.

I can't fathom what depth of hubris it takes to tell someone what they should do in their own home even once, much less to keep telling him.

Got a question for ya. You *keep* "telling" Rowland who to ban. How do the "we" you say you're a part of come to a consensus on who you should *tell* him to ban? Do you meet in a Star-Chamber type chat room and go around a virtual table giving thumbs up or thumbs down to the targets of your self-appointed scrutiny? And when Rowland ignores your demand for banning someone from his website, what's the accepted, appropriate number of times to *keep* telling him to ban that person? Is there a point at which your Star Chamber compatriots and you just give a collective shrug-of-the-shoulders and acquiesce to the reality that your opinion on this subject is, as it should be, completely irrelevant and unimportant to anyone else but yourselves? That epiphany obviously hasn't struck you yet.

Feel free to just call people out by name next time, it would be alot classier of you.


Hmmm....I thought the quotations and accurate descriptions would be enough to get the point across. So how exactly is it less classy to give my general overview of the thread than to poke my finger in 3 or 4 people's chest by calling them out by name?

And speaking of names.....Ummm....I don't know your name. I might use your screen name if it said that you wanted to play like Derek, or wanted to grow your hair like Derek or whatever, but wanna BE Derek? That's not a name dude, that's just weird, obsessive idolatry that I choose not to indulge you with. There is an alternative that I could stomach using. It's less obsessed-sounding, but still an accurate description of you from what I can see. Why not change your nick to "Wannabe-a-Webmaster"?

In the interest of peace I'll just say that I think the wannabe handle refers to his desire to play guitar like Derek and have some of the satisfaction in his life that Derek has, to have a handle wannaplalikederek is just too damn long so I think he shortened it to wannabederek. I think you made your other points adequately so I will not add anything to them.

All of the above is untrue and you probably know that. Tom gets upset when people try to tell Rowland what to do. Your point was that the moderators should take action sooner than they do, Tom perceived this to mean that you are telling them how to do their job; which I don't think is so.

I think you just want the abusive people dealt with quickly, firmly, and if it takes a while for that to happen, then you don't mind pointing it out. Sometimes suggestions are perceived by others as 'telling them what to do'. Even when that is not the intent.

Now can everyone agree that people who are abusive should be put in the playpen as a punishment quickly, like being suspended? They could also be limited only to posting in a thread they create about their situation where others could reply to them. Being able to create other threads is not exactly punishment to them. You could even call it the Punishment Thread - the description being, whose on it this week and why. If they show some sense of remorse, they could graduate to the Change My Way of Living thread where they make promises they'll try to do better. If they then get sprung from the playpen, they go back to regular society. If they screw up in the same manner, they go back to the Playpen to the Rehab thread where they remain to think about it.


TakeMeBWIAB - 11/15/2008 at 08:55 AM


Gina, you read a lot more into the words that are posted here than I do. I reacted to his words exactly as they were written, ie: "Why not keep banning the people we keep telling you to ban...." If it was a poorly-phrased thought, he could've easily just said so, explained what he really meant and I would've thought nothing more of it. He didn't simply make a suggestion that I interpreted as "telling them what to do," he demanded to know why they aren't doing what he (they) *keeps* telling them to do.

Things you maybe should've learned from my post:

1) No, you're better than the over-inflated sense of self-importance that your posts suggest you are burdened with. It's hard to believe that you really think you have the right or a good reason to tell Rowland to act on who you say should be silenced and who passes your scrutiny. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you're a better person than to really believe that. So what I'm saying is that I'm not better than you, you're better than the drivel you're posting in this thread.
2) You have appointed yourself to a position that no one with the authority to do so ever created, sought advice for or asked you to fill. I don't have an answer for everything, but I do have an answer for that.
3) Umm....I'm not trying to get anyone banned, you are. Who thinks they're better than whom?
4) I am just as entitled to an opinion of your opinion as you are to give it in the first place.
5) See #1 above and actually read it before playing the po' po' pitiful victim again in your response.
6) Yep, clearly. One out of six. While I don't consider myself a better person than you, I certainly do think I'd score better than you in a contest of bullet-points. In fact, I just did!

I never said anything was wrong with the solution, Tommy. Past that, you apparently still have your selective vision on the whole "foul mouthed" thing (depending on who is foul mouthed and if you are buddies with them) and then you go on to talk about hypocrisy!

heineken515 - 4/9/2009 at 02:48 PM

Nope, she was driven off. Some say by her own accord, some disagree...as most polarizing topics there are opinions way to the left and way to the right.

She'll be back, hopefully.

I sure didn't agree with her most of the time, but she was always thought provoking and I enjoyed repartee with her.


piacere - 5/7/2009 at 12:25 PM

"repartee" ?

if you say so...

MarkRamsey - 10/18/2009 at 04:38 PM

Just a thought. Why not have everyone put their actual name on instead of hiding behind anonymous screen names? I'd venture the folks who talk the most crap don't behave that way in person. At least not for long


Shapeshifter72 - 11/9/2009 at 07:46 AM

Well, first off, thank you Rowland and Lana for addressing this. I suppose my 2 cents don't matter much, my friends here no who I am and I have always been a straight up guy.
But, I am glad this has been addressed, because quite frankly, I haven't been posting here for the last several months ( I do read posts a lot) for this reason. I grew tired of people bickering and arguing over nonsense. Constantly. I hope this will finally put an end to it. I already went to Middle School, it was called Junior High back then. I don't really want to go back there. LOL
Hello to friends I haven't seen in a few and good vibes to those I have yet to meet. See you on the road. B

Hopefully it would contain the Superbowl Shuffle and a continuous loop of the 1985 Superbowl game....... Look - there goes the Fridge!

And who can forget......


In their victory over the Patriots, the Bears set Super Bowl records for sacks (seven), fewest rushing yards allowed (seven), and margin of victory (36 points). New England took the quickest lead in Super Bowl history with Tony Franklin's 36-yard field goal 1:19 into the first quarter after a Chicago fumble. But the Patriots were eventually held to negative yardage (-19) throughout the entire first half, and finished with just 123 total yards from scrimmage, the second lowest total yards in Super Bowl history, behind the Minnesota Vikings (119 total yards) in Super Bowl IX. Bears defensive end Richard Dent, who had 1.5 quarterback sacks, forced two fumbles, and blocked a pass, was named the game's Most Valuable Player.

Are you sure it wasn't Dez Bryant's mom's jaw?


DougMacKenzie - 7/18/2012 at 11:56 AM

Dez is just misunderstood.


piacere - 7/18/2012 at 03:19 PM

once again, this goes from a Patriots issue; Bob Kraft dating a 32 year old bimbo and posting a video on youtube, to some nonsense about the Cowboys.

focus...

Sang man is the owner of the Cowboys making pathetically ridiculous videos, "not intended to go public" of him mockingly laying a right cross into some dude's jaw, intending to defend the honor of his scantily clad 32 year old "gal pal"?

geeze Bob, really?




Cowboys, or Patriots owner?


piacere - 7/18/2012 at 07:59 PM

apparently, you haven't seen the Bob Kraft video featuring him, his 32 year old girlfriend and the mock right cross to some guys' face...

Hey Sang man , as one who, like myself, appreciates all things brunette, you might want to know that an Italian woman from Cranston, RI won Miss Universe last night. I was going to start a thread but a) I didn't watch it, I'm in bed at 9, I saw it as the front page headline in today's Journal (yes, I'm one of the few people who still reads the paper and b) I don't care enough to start a thread.

just thought in case you hadn't heard that the best lookin' babes are here in RI.

well, one anyway.


Sang - 12/20/2012 at 03:23 PM

She probably had to move to RI to qualify...............

one good thing from the game, I got the phone number of the cutie sitting in front of me.

poor thing.

Obviouly the smart one.

and lady golfers.

Listen, in the sense of fair play, to do what is right, what is just, the username of a Patriots fan should remain atop the board 'til at least the beginning of next season, when the march to glory commences.

the only people who care are Ravens and 49ers fans, Mr. and Mrs. Harbaugh, parents of the coaches and the media eating up the Ray Lewis "saga" as if it was important.

That's where we suggest all yankees go. Be sure to wear your Patriots jersey.

I talk funny? Listen up...many years ago, God, for His amusement and own pleasure, decided to create the football gods and give them the power of communication via the spoken word. The football gods, after roaming aimlessly for years, asked of Him, "We need a place to settle". So again, God in His wisdom, settled the football gods in and amongst the rolling hills and mountain ranges of New England. Quite bored with not much going on, they proclaimed, "Let there be glory, let there might, let there be Patriots!" Alas, millennia later, their prophetic and wise proclamation has been personified and manifests itself in the town of Foxboro, in the Land of Champions. So...if I talk funny, remember this, O Lad...it all started here.

Murray is used up, injury prone. Let the Eagles pay him to fumble. I could gain 1,000 yards behind the Cowboy's line. Dez was the key. Onward and upward!


piacere - 3/14/2015 at 01:22 PM

yeah, that O Line is pretty good and he never seemed to be explosive or fast. The tape I've seen of him, he just looks like a big rumblin' shnook. Matthews might get more carries than him, another guy who's injury prone.

first nice weekend in months.

happy spring.

The mighty and beloved Patriots are kings of the hill until someone knocks them off it some time in January or February of next year, if at all.

though I will grant you playoff hockey is a blast to watch. Insanely intense.


Sang - 4/27/2015 at 05:41 PM

Boomhauer, I can't understand a word you just said... what with all that legalese mumbo-jumbo.


You can't compete with this guy. He's a football player, and football players know how to treat a woman right.

Dallas? I don't want you goin' to Dallas at all. That place is crawlin' with crack-heads and debutantes, and half of 'em play for the Cowboys.

If Bobby doesn't love football, he won't lead a fulfilling life, and then he'll die.

This is getting ridiculous. Was supposed to go to Houston this weekend for a soccer tournament, but it's underwater. I saw a fish jump in what used to be my backyard this morning.

DougMacKenzie - 5/30/2015 at 02:51 PM

Poured down rain again last night, one more round of heavy rain coming today and then things finally dry out over the next week. As the late great Harold Taft used to say, "If you want to end a drought, you need a flood." Mission accomplished.

I bet all the Pros and about 25 college games a week with a friend of mine. We bet the spread and the over/under. We bet $2 a game and alternate picks each picking two bets at a time. We also play for a trophy that, if need be, gets exchanged during baseball season when we visit a neutral city to experience a different baseball park. We also alternate bookmaker. This year my friend Kurt is the bookmaker. The bookmaker uses the Vegas lines from Scores and Odds and comes up with his own spread.

My strategy this year has been to take the most favorable spread. Especially when there is an advantage of more than 2 points.

To date I'm up 24 bets this year.

That could all change on any week but right now I'm feeling it is better to pick "blind" piacere.

Good luck during the rest of the season!


piacere - 10/21/2015 at 03:35 PM

I used to be pretty serious about betting football. Studied upcoming games all week. Did pretty good. Now, it's for sh!ts and giggles. Takes me all of 30 seconds to pick 16 games.

DougMacKenzie - 1/14/2016 at 02:03 PM

More likely to freeze her a$$ off in a blizzard while the Patsies balls are deflated and they lose their way in a snow drift.


piacere - 1/14/2016 at 02:04 PM

cold here today. 22, wind chill factor 9.

Invigorating!!!


DougMacKenzie - 1/14/2016 at 02:06 PM

Cold here this morning, down to 38. High about 68. No wonder you guys are so wacked; your brains are frozen.


piacere - 1/15/2016 at 02:52 PM

yeah but they thaw by mid-May and we're back to...normal.


Sang - 1/15/2016 at 06:20 PM

okay, enough idle banter, on to the real story - GO BLACKHAWKS!


piacere - 1/17/2016 at 02:27 PM

heh heh...

ya gotta love the Patriots, year after year they make winter bearable by playing until February...and then some, easing the doldrums of cold weather and posts by wannabes.


Sang - 1/17/2016 at 04:56 PM

Do knot..............


piacere - 1/18/2016 at 08:32 PM

nice out. Sunny, nice breeze.

4 degrees with the wind.

not bad for January.


Sang - 1/19/2016 at 05:36 AM

Call gina to warm you up................


piacere - 1/19/2016 at 01:55 PM

call gina?

she's in the next room makin' breakfast...

where you been?


DougMacKenzie - 1/19/2016 at 02:23 PM

After careful consideration, and after reading your posts at my behest, my beautiful, wonderful, and talented daughter Connor has decided to forsake the frozen tundra and frozen brains of the great white north and commit to Rogers State University in Claremore, Ok. to continue her education and soccer career. Thank goodness.


piacere - 1/19/2016 at 03:30 PM

my brother

believe this, it's true...my last post, the 4 degree one and NOT gina my love muffin, was designed to give you and the kid some idea of how it is around here, late November to sometimes mid-April. Though I'm sure you two had some idea of the frozen tundra here in the great northeast, today again it's hovering around 0 with the wind, I thought I'd drive the point home. Glad it landed.

I work second shift with college kids nightly. Their biggest gripe, at least the people from down south or out west, is the weather. Puts 'em all in a crappy mood (though that is somewhat true for people who actually live here anyway , it's that Seasonal Affective Disorder thing.)

Anyway, glad you and the kid have settled into a choice much closer to home.


DougMacKenzie - 1/19/2016 at 03:37 PM

I don't know if it ws you, your psycho chick, or the weather that concerned her more. Just glad she has decided to stay closer to home.


piacere - 1/19/2016 at 04:28 PM

geeze, I'd hate to think the kid's biggest decision of her life to this point was based on my psychosis...

anyway, more food for thought and weather related...sometimes it gets so cold here a person's cerebrospinal fluid leaks out their eyeballs and freezes. It's quite an experience and explains our behavior...

so it's my deepest wish that it's weather related...


DougMacKenzie - 1/19/2016 at 04:39 PM

Good lord. That explains so much. Must be the same in Chicago...........


Sang - 1/19/2016 at 05:34 PM

Oklahoma? God help her..........


piacere - 1/20/2016 at 02:37 PM

perusing through a few other threads, I see gina, my little cuddle muffin, has been on a roll...

bless her heart...


piacere - 1/20/2016 at 05:59 PM

DUG man...you should come up to New England for the weekend...check out the kid's campus, enjoy some seafood and revel in the THREE FREAKIN' FEET OF SNOW we're projected to get.

c'mon man, come join the snowy revelry...


DougMacKenzie - 1/20/2016 at 08:21 PM

You are truly insane. Upper 50's to mid 60's all week here. I hate the cold snaps of winter.


piacere - 1/21/2016 at 02:34 PM

again I must reiterate.

I'm not insane...I'm different.

enough of this!

back on topic: PATRIOTS !!!


Sang - 1/22/2016 at 04:41 AM

I'm not seeing much of a difference here..........

Although your girlfriend takes insane to a new level..........


Sang - 1/25/2016 at 04:37 AM

Bet it feels a little colder in New England tonight..............


piacere - 1/25/2016 at 01:53 PM

we never had a chance, not even a chance. O line couldn't block the Prince impersonator on the Diet Dr. Pepper commercials...

ol' Tom has got to be hurtin'...

Carolina...wow.


piacere - 1/26/2016 at 06:15 PM

well well...got a one game lead over the Sangster for fourth, four in the loss column. (I'm not going to catch DanB, he's got 3 or 4 games on me...won't get the bronze)

so...I'm the insane one.

(took Carolina...line went from 4 to 4.5 and I'm betting it goes up)

you see where SB ticket prices went way down?

heh heh...love 'em or hate 'em, you want to watch 'em.

btw...we stink.


Sang - 1/30/2016 at 06:12 AM

Yes you do.......

oh look, Brady just got hit again................


DougMacKenzie - 1/30/2016 at 01:44 PM

Tom Brady> Ia he still playing?


piacere - 1/30/2016 at 02:50 PM

yes, he is playing.



golf.


DougMacKenzie - 2/1/2016 at 02:11 PM

With Romo.


Sang - 2/1/2016 at 04:04 PM

....and Cutler..........


DougMacKenzie - 2/2/2016 at 04:14 PM

There's always next year.

Or the year after that..........


piacere - 2/2/2016 at 04:17 PM

...or the year after that.


Sang - 2/5/2016 at 11:49 PM

Whatever. Let's focus on the here and now - GO BLACKHAWKS!


DougMacKenzie - 2/25/2016 at 05:30 PM

Forget the chicken hawks. Go Stars!


Sang - 3/6/2016 at 10:13 PM

Uh, no.............


DougMacKenzie - 3/22/2016 at 12:55 PM

Is it football season yet?


Sang - 3/26/2016 at 03:08 AM

No.


DougMacKenzie - 5/6/2016 at 12:55 PM

No longer hockey season for the Blackhawks either.


Sang - 5/8/2016 at 03:31 PM

Nobody asked you.............


piacere - 5/9/2016 at 03:07 PM

yo, what up, dogs.

as spring blooms it's colorful glory, as the sun shines it's golden hue, as the wisp of breeze accentuates the warmth of the mid-day slumber...

remember this:

PATRIOTS !!!

I have spoken.


Sang - 5/9/2016 at 04:06 PM

I liked the 4 months of silence better.............


DougMacKenzie - 5/16/2016 at 03:17 PM

Agreed. Now go away.


Sang - 5/17/2016 at 07:00 PM

No. But thanks for asking!


DougMacKenzie - 5/18/2016 at 12:50 PM

You're welcome


Sang - 5/23/2016 at 06:04 PM

Almost 80 degrees in Chicago.............


DougMacKenzie - 5/30/2016 at 12:52 PM

Anybody know how long a cubit is? I need to get started on my ark.


Sang - 6/1/2016 at 04:04 PM

Try Google................


DougMacKenzie - 6/11/2016 at 02:09 AM

Hippie.


Sang - 6/19/2016 at 02:32 AM

So what's your point?


Sang - 7/27/2016 at 03:55 AM

What happened to the 2 losers that usually post in this thread?


DougMacKenzie - 8/10/2016 at 12:39 PM

Well, obviosly you're still here. Piacere is probably out chasing psycho chicks and got lost.


Sang - 8/10/2016 at 02:01 PM

He probably can't afford the internet with the cost of all the medications for the one he has ............


piacere - 10/1/2016 at 11:53 AM

she's not psycho.

she's "special".

yo, how's things?


Sang - 10/1/2016 at 05:02 PM


DougMacKenzie - 10/5/2016 at 03:16 PM

Just in time for Halloween. And the Bears have their football costumes on already.


Sang - 10/5/2016 at 10:29 PM

That's all they are - costumes..........


piacere - 10/18/2016 at 12:45 AM

Pats/Cowboys in the Super Bowl.

you heard it here first.

Pats 38, Cowboys 27.



I have spoken.


Sang - 10/22/2016 at 04:24 PM

Wanna make me an omelet too?


DougMacKenzie - 10/31/2016 at 02:14 PM

Actually piacere might be right for once. I could see that happening. Have the Bears forfeited the rest of the season yet?


Sang - 10/31/2016 at 09:30 PM

Might as well...............


piacere - 12/18/2016 at 05:31 PM

oh boo freakin hoo...

listen up.

PATRIOTS !!!


Sang - 12/20/2016 at 04:23 AM

Girl friend finally let you use the computer?


Sang - 1/16/2017 at 07:20 PM

Hard to get a tee time with all the Cowgirls taking them........


DougMacKenzie - 1/27/2017 at 06:45 PM

I'd rather be sitting where the Cowboys are than the Bears.........Just sayin'


Sang - 1/29/2017 at 08:04 PM

On the sidelines?


piacere - 2/1/2017 at 02:02 PM

hey you two sillies, thanks for the chuckle, as sad and mediocre as it is....

oh and one more thing, wannabes:

PATRIOTS !!!


Sang - 2/3/2017 at 08:03 PM

I wannabe sedated..............


piacere - 2/7/2017 at 01:07 PM

Sang - 3/16/2017 at 07:56 PM

That's long enough......


piacere - 3/25/2017 at 04:24 PM

somebody should stick a fork in the WP. This place is done.


Sang - 4/3/2017 at 05:45 AM

Not as long as you and your girlfriend are here......


piacere - 4/10/2017 at 01:50 PM

if i never see another "Watson" commercial it won't bother me.
