Image result for Banned In The USA, 2 Live Crew

 

I got banned for about a week about posting some shenanigans at a former workplace which I deleted. Then I got banned for a year for posting a picture of toilet with diarrhea all over it. In all honesty, TGP isn't all that and a bag of chips. TGP has become an adult nursery for old crybaby, blues playing, fat/skinny dudes who want to pontificate the differences between handwired or PCB in their amps and other cork sniffing, butt smelling subjects. I did like their gear emporiums and have scored quite a few cool pieces of gear that I use to this day. 

   I just chill, hang out here or some other forums that I'm interested in, and move on. A lot of the comments from people who like to argue, are not knowledgeable about things they never owned, had experience with a particular piece of gear, someone made fun of their musical idol, etc. was fun to interact with, but that train has left the station. Sharing my playing or gear knowledge or experiences with people who are eager to belittle or ridicule you is like putting the pearls before the swine. I can see why a lot of the pro players have left TGP forum not to come back either. The mods are too eager to ban someone who stands up to them or has opinions that differ from their own. Regardless of my ban on TGP, I'm enjoying life, playing my guitars with my bands, and doing the things that I need or want to do without anyone's need of approval.

No, it wasn't, mang! I posted a picture of the offending toilet to be humorous and was construed by the mods as if I posted something foul/banal/pornographic. I didn't see it that way from my point of view, but it's not my website or type of people to share or interact with any more. There are other people who have posted more offensive/insulting/demeaning/derogatory things on TGP than I ever will and they have either got a pass or have gotten away with it. I'm not worried about it either.

Umm...I love Neil Young AND the Grateful Dead. 

And @Moose, we need more details. What kind of sandwich???

Peanut butter, actually. The hippie girls always had the BEST bread and that natural organic peanut butter.

it was seriously hard times. I was paying for college and on too tight a budget and too proud to ask for help. I was stupid as a 19 year old.  I literally couldn't afford to eat the last day or two of the month some times. When you can't afford a box of off-brand mac'n'cheese or ramen, your priorities get skewed a bit.

But this wasn't a common occurrence. I only did it one other time to that hippie girl.

I think it matters what specific forum the problem occurs within. The Sound Lounge and the Pub are where everyone gets in the most trouble. I got into a pretty heated argument in the Recording/Live Sound forum just a week or so ago and didn’t get in trouble outside of a warning, posts removed but no “points”.

Narcissists abound in TGP. Great place to buy used gear though... vintage pedals go for the cheapest prices on ththe internet there. So many boutique cork sniffers that the vintage gear has to be priced at market value and not a penny more.

Also the best place to buy used boutique gear. Most members know the exact value of everything so it usually keeps the prices honest... I basically wouldn’t have a pedalboard if it wasn’t for TGP. I certainly would have never heard about the Zen Drive or about Warm Audio.

Super information but not a friendly place... mostly just wankers, wannabes & blues lawyers.

My banning puzzled the hell out of me because it came out of the blue and I hadn’t had anyone take issue with what I posted... no warning - just the ban hammer. Must have been a mod who had a bone to pick with me - like a Dokken or Winger fan.... 

oh well - I’m banned for two more days..... what to do? Did you guys know there was porn on the internet? Holy crap.... you can also stream movies on this thing called webflix or netweb or something.... and the porn is free - how cool is that!!

I hate that place and only go there for the awesome Lovepedal thread where we have a saying “Don’t Get Out Of the boat”...meaning, stay in this thread and don’t waste your time posting in the rest of the site due to all the ever-present asshats.

That only means he thought Matte is a bigger asshole than you. Now, you have your moments, but that's a no-brainer.

Well...I am really not sure that *anyone* is a bigger asshole than Matte.

I never knew there were Don Dokken fanboys .... until TGP. Like can’t some things be universally despised? Can’t we just agree on Don and be done?

That was my point.  Not much for @The Shark to hang his hat on, but it's something.

He would lean towards Perfect.   But may make an exception for Prophet.

No doubt.  It has been said of him that he is so humble that he considers himself to be the best at it.

Or has it simply given pre-existing narcissists a worldwide platform to express their narcissism?

I do not remember people being so full of themselves previously, and I grew up in wealthy NYC suburb where everyone went off to college.

Yeah, but the internet, social media and smart phones weren't ubiquitous like they are now. The narcissism was definitely there, it just wasn't in your face 24/7. Same with the racism. And the anger.

Posted (edited)

I’m in the final hours (I think) of my banning..... and I suddenly have the urge to post a photo of Neil Young sitting on a toilet.... do I go back, flipping tables and screaming at the money lenders? Do I try to make peace with whatever mod banned me? Is it showdown time? Is Don Dokken or his mom a TGP moderator? Who knows!  Do I lie in wait like a school shooter - biding my time for the big sendoff?  Decisions decisions...... it might be Shadow account time...  Trickster time!!! Monkey wrench time!!!!!! I might have to curry favor with the mod team under the “Rhett from Albuquerque” personae - a 67 year old ex hippy who plays a Les Paul Jr through an old Princeton.... Rhett has bursitis in his ass from his days driving trucks around the SW.... claim to fame was he once shared a beer with Neil Cassady even though the dates don’t line up..... This could be good!
