Beatnut, you missed a very interesting personality awhile back named SusanSamIAm (or something like that.) Shall we say she evoked a few responses from the board. The only time I ever saw Eric post a shocked face, a twirling crazy face, and a crying face all in the same post! hahahahahaha

Damn! I guess trolls are everywhere. So I take it that maybe a few have been banned from this site?

So far even just by reading people's posts here I am inclined to want to meet everyone. I think Eric truly has one of the nicest followings. smile

I've been to a couple of other forums for other dubjects, and there are people who are definitely mentally ill.

We just kick them off and go on.

When you ignore the insults and crazy talk, the day goes along much better.

I was teased terribly in school, but I forgot, forgave and even managed to have great conversations with these folks much later in life. One even admitted that although there was a theory that some people seemd to have a subconscious need to be teased, she believed the BULLY actually had a deep need to get attention by hurting other people.

That woman is now a Social Worker and helps other people.

Beatnut, Eric handled it with class (he always does) but she was unstable and obsessed and it got very strange as she made things up along the way. The rest of us 'errant kooks' are no where near as frightening --- I think. insane

For the record BEATNUT = Mike smile

Would have been really amused to see this one..

I'm sure Eric handles everything with class. He was so gracious to me when I met him. People were only supposed to have one item signed but he signed 3 things for me, posed for a picture,and shook my hand.. a thrill i'm never going to forget.

Mike, there have been some (a few) people who have been escorted off the board and the main reason was sensational disruptiveness (is that a word) - their only goal was to be divisive and nasty. there was definitely mental illness involved in a couple of cases but it was sport to others. as you can see, that's not what we're about...pretty honest exchanges of opinions with respect and a healthy dose of humor (see Cartmill posts) and irreverence (see Cartmill) but boy, do I want to party with these guys!!

I have been lucky enough to meet a lot of the boarders at different events (including my Muzza and Kiwi!!!) and it is wonderful.

Paulie, you are a class act (much like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack - NOT!!!) and Danny, get your butt back here!!!

Hi Annie..thanks for explaining. I know how it is to meet board members. I have been a member of Paul McCartney.com for 6 years..have about 23,000 posts between the 2 boards they've had.

I remember the first time driving to Manhattan to meet about 8 members. We decided to meet at this restaurant bar called the Film Center Cafe because my daughter was a bar manager there.

As i'm driving there my wife is next to me in the car and all I kept thinking to myself is what in God's name am I doing to my poor wife?

Meeting lunatics from a message board? Am I for real?

My wife says to me what if we don't like them or they're weird? I said well it's just like going to the Poconos I guess..they put you with people you don't know and if you don't like them you don't sit near them the next day.

Anyhow, we meet these people and several more..I swear to you they are closer to me then some of my own family members. They all attended my wedding in 2003..some have been to my house for Christmas Eve for the past 4 consecutive years.

One couple in 2004 bought me my beautiful pure bred yellow lab named Sadie ..after sexy sadie..

then just recently in Novemeber bought me sadie's blood sister Ellie (short for Eleanor Rigby) Ellie is 3 years younger than sadie but they both have the same parents.

In fact the house full I had a couple of weeks ago were all people I met from that website.

Of course as some know, it turned out to be my Raspberries celebration/weekend birthday bash.

Now I am looking forward to meeting you guys and gals.. smile

Danny, my friend, Bernie passed a little-known unwritten rule a while ago that goes something like this: No resigning from the board allowed, at least not in public. We've had one member quit and come back more times than Billy Martin, making headlines every time. One of his resignations turned into an 18-page thread of people telling him to come back.... A couple resignations later, a dozen or so longtime members joshed him a bit by posting threads announcing they were quitting the board. It was kind of funny....

Anyway, the long and short of it is, stick around, have fun, argue about music, and --- if you hit a snag or get caught up in a little intensity, take a break for a few days. You'll always find yourself wanting to come back.

EC.com is like the Hotel California: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave....
