I will probably continue to lurk there, but the fact that so many people there are so welcoming to a handful of Really Bad Eggs who were ejected from this message board for Very Good Reasons-- some of whom have been accused of maliciously spreading untruths, others who are simply terrible, terrible people-- makes me feel icky. All the backslapping and tribalism grosses me out.

2 john: Who is that bad poster? Edit - China Pig?

Right. His parting shot was just about the lowest I've ever seen anyone sink anywhere.

Perhaps backing up your opinion, a statement from AGD just this morning on said forum:

"AGD: Learning about human nature via the boards is one thing. Then you have to address the problem. That's why Smiley Smile is imploding: ineffective modding and a mod who should have been relieved of his duties at least six months ago."

Now, that type of statement has earned two other members of that board bans.  I don't think AGD will be banned, even temporarily, for violating their rules.  Which, ironically, shows how effective the moderating here is:  the moderators are not afraid to justly and fairly and carefully take action against violators, no matter how "important" they are. 

You all have some of the best message board moderators you could hope for.  And despite the hopes and dreams of some, this board is not "imploding" anytime soon.

First off, that is my business what gets done at Pet Sounds, not yours. Secondly, you started it by baiting people in Shoutbox yesterday. When you bait people, then expect a reply. If you weren't prepared for an answer, then you should have never posed the question in the first place. That may certainly earn you a ban if I see it happen again.
If you are happy with your Moderators, then that is absolutely terrific. You have things here just as you want them. I am very happy for you. We now have things the way we want them on our board. I am very happy with the Moderators at the Pet Sounds Forum. They will do a fantastic job in there, and already have during the first week open. Folks now have a choice where they want to go and hang out.

Where did that happen here? Someone rightfully brought up the fact that despite the rules, this "us versus them" mentality was in full force within days of Andrew's...oops, Lee's...oops, I mean Dirk's board going live, and those doing it were allowed to do it even though it was supposed to lead to a ban. So, this board gets a bad rep but some banned members are still allowed to duck the rules on a new board? Where are the bans! (he says banging a fist on the lectern...)

37!ws, maybe you're right after all! The nasty reputation of BB boards overall might just be due to that exact same behavior from the same people who must be immune to the rules.

Rob, we had a talk last Sunday and as far as I am concerned, we understand each others position. If we are that terrible a place, then just stay here. This is where you are comfortable posting with other like minded people. Same goes for Marcella.... Nobody is forcing anybody to do anything.

Folks now have a choice where they want to go and hang out.

1) I baited no one, unless we define baiting as existing and breathing.
2) Due to the limitations of the "shoutbox," my question has scrolled away, but as I recall, the only question I asked was if the board's data could be backed up, since its existence is dependent on ProBoards not disappearing someday.
3) I did make a statement, not a question, regarding the behavior of people online, which inspired AGD to break one of major guidelines of the Pet Sounds forum, which is to not discuss the Smiley Smile board.  Keep in mind, I never even mentioned this forum over there.  But, I'm being threatened with a ban, and AGD is not.  Perhaps I am not important enough?  Or maybe you can't ban, even temporarily, the one person the board was created for?
4) Folks have always had a choice to be or not to be on any particular message board.  It's not as if this has ever been the only Beach Boys forum or music forum.  It is true, however, that for now, the "folks" that have consistently been removed from Beach Boys forums have a place to talk to each other.  For that, they should be very grateful to you for.

Hydrogen peroxide reminds of why I am grateful to AGD for starting the new board.  It's like HP in the sense that it has and continues to draw an infection out of this board.  Much like previous times, the drama and bad behavior is being sucked out, so that the board can heal and be stronger than ever.

True, very true: At least there is a separate place for those who want to hang with like-minded people who deal in insults, lies, and slander:

Once last word before I bid you all farewell.
Craig, you are the most overbearing, blowhard, bellend I have ever come across.
Debbie, Brian dumped your saggy ass decades ago- move on.
Rab, NPP is still a big steaming pile of dogshit.
Billy, have fun in your sheltered accomodation, loser.

See you all under my next alias

 LOL  Reminds me of ZZ Top, the band member named Beard is the only band member without a beard.

Ok, you made a STATEMENT, that is correct. My humble apology for calling it a QUESTION. Andrew responded to it in kind. I still think you were baiting and got the response you were expecting. Shoot, you even posted it here. So, no other action is necessary.

As I stated here last weekend, indeed, the forum was created for those who no longer had a voice in here, but also for any Beach Boys fan who wanted an alternate place to post. We now share quite a few members after less than a week. So, it turns out that having an alternate forum was appealing to the membership.

Sadly, you will find that putting the bad eggs "who no longer had a voice in here" in a new refrigerator will not make them any less bad.  And, while I regret they made choices that made them not welcome here, I do not regret that this refrigerator is cleaner and fresher.

If you weren't prepared for an answer, then you should have never posed the question in the first place. That may certainly earn you a ban if I see it happen again.
If you are happy with your Moderators, then that is absolutely terrific. You have things here just as you want them. I am very happy for you. We now have things the way we want them on our board. I am very happy with the Moderators at the Pet Sounds Forum. They will do a fantastic job in there, and already have during the first week open. Folks now have a choice where they want to go and hang out.

1) I baited no one, unless we define baiting as existing and breathing.
2) Due to the limitations of the "shoutbox," my question has scrolled away, but as I recall, the only question I asked was if the board's data could be backed up, since its existence is dependent on ProBoards not disappearing someday.
3) I did make a statement, not a question, regarding the behavior of people online, which inspired AGD to break one of major guidelines of the Pet Sounds forum, which is to not discuss the Smiley Smile board.  Keep in mind, I never even mentioned this forum over there.  But, I'm being threatened with a ban, and AGD is not.  Perhaps I am not important enough?  Or maybe you can't ban, even temporarily, the one person the board was created for?
4) Folks have always had a choice to be or not to be on any particular message board.  It's not as if this has ever been the only Beach Boys forum or music forum.  It is true, however, that for now, the "folks" that have consistently been removed from Beach Boys forums have a place to talk to each other.  For that, they should be very grateful to you for.
Ok, you made a STATEMENT, that is correct. My humble apology for calling it a QUESTION. Andrew responded to it in kind. I still think you were baiting and got the response you were expecting. Shoot, you even posted it here. So, no other action is necessary.

As I stated here last weekend, indeed, the forum was created for those who no longer had a voice in here, but also for any Beach Boys fan who wanted an alternate place to post. We now share quite a few members after less than a week. So, it turns out that having an alternate forum was appealing to the membership.

Bullshit.

I think there are 'bad eggs' on both sides of this ridiculous feud. Then there are a bunch of people who are just exasperated.
I think there are still bad eggs here and now there are some over there. But, I think the bad eggs are sorting themselves by opinion and won't have anyone to quarrel with, because they'll agree with each other.
So as long as they don't keep cross-boarding and flaming, peace can reign.

Right now, there are some exasperated middle-grounders at that board because they associate the stupid battle with this board. But with time the middle-grounders can sort themselves with the bad eggs that bother them the least.

So, hopefully, there will be one board with one group of bad eggs and the middle-grounders who can tolerate them best.
And another board with a different group of bad eggs and the middle-grounders who can tolerate that group best.

Unfortunately, middle-grounders can't have a happy place where they're all together, because middle-grounders don't usually support a lot of banning, so bad eggs show up and stir up divisions.

For those thinking - gee, Emily is hardly a middle-grounder - that's totally true with regard to politics, but not with regard to Beach Boys. And I'd be fine if political discussion was banned altogether but if others are going to post their political stuff, I'm going to respond. So, I'm a political bad egg, but not a BB bad egg.
