Grateful Dead

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!

Isn't it kind of weird for Sean Hanity to be using the Dead's music for his program? I don't feel a lot of political affinity there!

gone now

yes, the brand does exist, though I haven't seen much hype for it lately. I don't exactly hang with the Hollywood crowd though.

Yeah, you can definatley see the vibes going off the wall in a few of the comments on 'the dead to tour in spring' topic. I do alot of reading on the topics just to get site of others opinions.. Sorry, not the greatest speller though.
