i realize this is an awkward issue,but i've been posting for about a month & feel that this is one of the places for me to go to have a chance to discuss the music i've listened to for many years--prior to joining & posting i've been reading this stuff since it became available--for the most part it's been fun,informative,educational & entertaining,However there are times when i get a vibe from the long term "posters" that is either sarcastic,negative or ignoring the newbie as if that person wasn't there or an "accepted" member,therby cutting them out of the conversation(sounds like high school).I've also read comments from people who have commented noticed this habit.--Please don't get me wrong--i sense that the majority of people here are decent & well intended & i'm FAR FAR from perfect myself--but,is there something to my observation or am i,as a result of my poor judgement completly misreading the issue--or can this be attributed to my lousy typing & overall limited ability to use & understand the cyber world??

Damn newbies!!






















J/K bro.

Dude, the people I have met here are the some of the nicest, coolest people I know.

Yes, even Sang

Dont sweat it dude. If here is any apprehension with anyone, it could be because of our recent "troll problem". Obviously you arent one, but I guess some people are a little skeptical until they get to "know you"

There are a few of us getting together before the DTB Nokia show. If you are interested, shoot me a PM.

I still consider myself a newbie here... I have been embraced in a way that sets my soul afire.... Thanks to everyone here. This is the best place..for the love of music and the people who make up that sound and all the ones who enjoy it... stick around and go to some shows..it's even better when you meet some of these folks face to face

Not many folks that go to shows are usually from this site, a few but not many. I'd say about 5-10% of the folks at the Beacon post here or lurk.

Welcome to the site anyways, I enjoy reading your posts.

Hey there Dad...

Welcome to the family, your orientation is now over - and you passed!

Lots of us have been a part of this place for long time and there in no better bunch anywhere than right here. Wait until you go to one of our Beacon pre-show parties when about 100 or more of us are all in a big room together - Now, that is what you call, priceless! There is not one person that I've met from here that I didn't like right away. We can drink and party and laugh and enjoy good times with the best of 'em...

Occasionally you will let your emotions get the best of you and maybe you will have a little cyber discussion/argument with someone from here - most of us have....but for the most part, we are a very passionate crew when it comes to life and music. You may wander elsewhere from time to time, but you will always come back here. It's hard to stay away for too long. We came here because the music of the Allman Brothers Band has touched our lives...but we STAY here because "We" have touched our lives! Welcome to the nut house...

Peace

There he goes! Talkin' 'bout me again!! Just kiddin'!! hehehe

I hear what you're sayin' daddy-o. Sometimes I get that feelin' too, and I'm one of the guilty ones as well. But, honestly, the "high school" behavior you're gonna find anywhere you go. Like Lefty said, it's just like anywhere else. I for one really enjoy havin' you here, Dad!

Something that has never happened to me, but I've seen it is some real intolerance to simple questions. A lot of people, including myself, post in here with very little knowledge of the band's history or current issues (particularly dickey and the whole opening for Petty deal this year). If someone ever asks a question that is common sense to a diehard fan like most of the people in here, but not to a casual fan of the band, they are treated...pretty badly, not always, but I've seen it. People are very sarcastic and insulting because they don't know something, stuff that a lot of times i didn't know when first posting. That's one thing I've noticed before...personally i've only had great experiences in meeting people and just talking about music and/or anything. So many people from so many different places with so much knowledge on a lot of different subjects...makes for some great discussions
