: : Concernng your last paragragh, I agree. Stones Fans attack each other all the time, on these message boards. It's the old "power/jealous" thing, I guess. I have pondered the following many times: "why can't each of us be accepted
: : on our individual merit"? Everyone comes from a differnt place, but one important thing stands out, "we all love the Stones and their music" and it is the "music" which is all important, right?
: : So, what I'm asking is, why all the arguments and why are there some people on these boards who want to play "god" and decide who is welcomed and who isn't on these wedsites? (by the way, it is my experience that the self proclaimed "gods" are the ones who actually start the round of problems to begin with.
Let me tell you something. Even the people who start flame wars (other than the spammers) want new posters on the board. The fact that they have someone new to throw flames at is a turn-on. Of cause, flames do keep some new people from posting. We have flames here but really no worst than any other boards. As web master, EVERYONE NEW is welcome to join in and post here. Noone else can claim who should and should not be here. I also don't buy the fact that Stormy & Blue want each other banned from the board. Regardless of what Blue wrote a while back, I bet if he and The Storm met, they would get along and be friends.
:Everyone is welcome unless one is a spammer or troll, and trolls have their purpose of stirring up conversation, as opposed to the spammer who tries to disrupt it.
Agree, trolls mean to start a flame war but many times they actually start a good thread.
