    Politics and religion were never the problem, they were only a catalyst. The real enemies of the forum are fighting, insults, immaturity, and oversensitivity. The forum has now suffered two casualties as a result... we have lost our valuable resource of technical knowledge, AND the stimulating and informative discussion of pertinent topics that (should) interest us ALL. Both have retreated to their own respective safe havens, leaving a gaping hole here, and each of those places is missing the other, while this forum misses both. It is truly sad.

    I cannot fight oversensitivity, but I can, and will, fight the others. You have been warned.

    I wanted to do my part to protect or ability to speak about those topics that we wish to speak about. Whatever they may be. Then Alex handed down the P&R ban. After reading many a post from a few members who just went ape shit, I cant say that I blame Alex and Adwex one bit for the changes they have had to make.
    I told Ad why I had to leave. It wasnt about holding the forum hostage or teaching it a lesson. This forum existed before I got here and will exist after I am gone. No one person here is that important. It was about things I said. My actions had to match my words.
    I hope one day this ban will be lifted and I can return. But that will require maturity on the part of the members. A certain level of peace must be reached and maintained. There are a number of members who have that already. And there are still others who need to get there. As demonstrated by a few recently. Those are the ones who ruin it for the rest. Or in this case, justify the actions taken.

    personally I have never had any problems around here, when i have asked for help people have answered to the best of their ability, just as I have tried to help others. I ignore the shit, laugh at the funny stuff and occasionally post a thread some just take it all a bit too serious!

    Lol. I had posts removed that weren't inflammatory or insulting towards anyone.

    Why though? We weren't fighting. It was just jokes between two guys that have zero animosity towards eachother. WTF?

    Maybe when you grow up you'll understand.

    Now stay on topic.

    Like I said in another thread-
    There are other places that put up with the intolerance, the religion, the conspiracy theories and all the politics. It is best to put those types of post there.
    This place is, and has always been, about Marshall amps.
    It is nice to see it return to its roots, it is not so nice to see the departure of some seriously talented people.
    There will be however, more talented people who will join.
    They will help others and offer great information.
    There will not be another marshallforum.com.

    Let's keep this place the one and only.

    The crux of the problem is that a lot of people are unable to carry on a discussion of salient points without getting emotionally involved. They gotta spew the hate. This is playing into the hands of those who would oppress us. The more polarized they can keep the peons(us), so we keep hating each other, the longer they can get away with the corruption and thievery, as we are too busy fighting each other to organize everyone to work against them.

    Some "rules" can't be explicitly defined in simple terms.

    Who were the two casualties?

    I'm not on here enough anymore and I really don't venture into any thread that's not directly relevant to amplification.

    The on-topic sections of this site get a ton of traffic. This is a busy site. The important and informative sections seem pretty healthy to me. So what if the goof-off section slows down? This area of the site is useless for anything but the occasional lol..
