Dangers, Toils and Snares...
Folks, old and new, few things gladden an old mod's heart like the way you stood up for this place in past weeks.
We can pretty much count on the fact that every time there's a new release, a Dead tour or show announcement, or some Dead-related media hoopla, we're going to be swamped. Some newcomers will be long-lost Heads dying to connect. Some will be new Heads longing to connect. This, of course, is highly desirable. Welcome.
Others, as we have seen, come mainly to vent or spew venom, and having done so usually move on. I am most gratified with the way the community members, old and new, came forth to squelch this in our most recent episode (and for those just joining us and filled with morbid curiosity, I refer you to the Dead To Tour In Spring topic around the time of the presale).
Others, frankly, will be porn spammers, malware perpetrators, and other cancers on the Internet. We have had the occasional instance of a porn spammer getting through and posting in the forums, but the more usual scenario is simply creating a user profile full of heinous links. If you should have the misfortune to encounter such a situation, please bring it to our attention and we'll deal with it. Please ALSO recognize that, contrary to the shocked reaction the first time this happened, porn and malware are NOT among the features we're offering here and we do not hold with that stuff.
Thanks and furthur!
and I have sent marye a message r.e......it's been reported
is there a problem with the personal messaging portion of this site. i can't seem to get one through. i know i've been a bit of a stranger, but c'mon. lol
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
Interesting "opinions". What was that about snobbery?
Why, that pesky Rhino corporate company; stealing our money at gunpoint! Down with corporations! Oh, which computer are you using by the way? Mac, PC or homemade?
"Nostalgia" or "memories" or "high times"?
War lovers and gun nuts?
Hey, is everyone using a different Forum to me? Am i being refused access to the next level? Do i need to get some funny handshake action going on? There's a parallel site where the Topics are governed by lizards, isn't there? Hey, let me in guys and gals! Don't shut me ou...
oh, hang on, "yep, that's two Big Mac's and large fries, thanks man". "And yeah! i'll go Supersize!".
Sorry 'bout that; where was i? oh, yeah...heyyyyyy, fooled ya there, didn't i?!!!
'course i don't eat at McDonalds!; i grow everything i eat, build my own solar panels, live in a cave and pray three times a day, totally uncontaminated by any them damn corporate clowns.
Europe '72 box soon guys!!
"We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Ooozzzzzzzzzz..."
If ya can't start the weekend with a joke, what can ya start it with?
Or is that toke?
back to your regular dangers.
Why doesn't it surprise me at all that hippies, tree-huggers, etc, are being blasted on other Dead and Furthur sites? On this site there is a fair proportion of flag-wavers (not THAT flag) and war lovers and gun nuts.
Deadheads are ALL over the spectrum. This site isn't a community of dead-lovers, it's mostly a lot of "holier-than-thou" Deadheads with opinions and snobbery attached to a commerciat site managed by Rhino. Maybe Hannity knows what all good marketers know -- you can manipulate people really well with feel-good nostalgia.
(Aw c'mon, deep down inside in places you don't like to admit being you NEED the $450 music only edition of E72)
~ I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead" ~
The show is not until next Sat, the 23rd Jonapi but I'm sure my Mom will get pretty wild... bringing out all her finest dance moves haha
and yet, one sheds a tear for a spammer who knows all the verses to Amazing Grace...or pretends to.
You get my private message with musical goodies, johnman?
And no i'm not spameyed!! maybe a little wide-eyed but that's another story....!!!!
How was the show mountaingirl28? i hope your mom wasn't too wild!! It's always the quiet ones you need to watch.....!!!
you are far too spameyed for here....
Parks and Rec is hilarious, love that show!
I'll see ya in Philly, I didn't have anyone to take either seeing as my friends are currently listening to Lady Gaga type pop bands at the moment. ( crap music! in my opinion.. cough cough). Sooo I'm taking my Mom who was conviced she was too old to go to concerts but we're gonna have a blast!
