101  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / "Deluxe editions" on: May 25, 2016, 06:53:18 PM
Have any of you guys ever made "deluxe editions" of the band's records using stuff from your collections? I've been doing it myself as a hobby for several years.

That's hardly offensive though, just a childish insult.

Maybe so, but as the board's resident goodwill ambassador (a statesman, if you will) I intend to keep the peace henceforth.
103  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 06:27:02 PM
It is?

I've always known it to be analogous to "sissy."

CALLING ME NAMES NOW, EH? Wink (Kidding)

It was a request for clarification. I received it. End of story. Smiley

Are you seriously mocking me?

No, I'm not mocking you. I was playing along with Ognir, not mocking anyone.

The British may be soft-spoken and polite but they didn't spread their empire by being pantywaists. Smiley

The rule doesn't actually specify "words that might hurt your feelings", but I guess that's a given.

That'd end with just about everyone banned.
108  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 05:00:36 PM
So using the word "retarded" as a slang for stupid (which was how it was intended in reference to the signature discussed in my original post) is now against the rules? Good to know. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

Let's just say that being a mod here will force you to grow a thick skin.

One could also put on his big boy pants and not say things they know are uncivil.

I agree.
111  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 04:18:09 PM
You really have no idea why the bolded words are offensive?

They might give someone else pause and possibly a reason to choose to be offended; for example, someone who'd hallucinate that people who dislike or even hate something Brian did musically translates to hatred for the man himself. My reply remains the same as it has many times over when I've been asked about my assumed ignorance of why something I say is "offensive" - if one chooses to be offended at what I've said, well, I find myself in the curious position between merely not giving a damn and apathy. One can expend the energy to choose to be offended or one can put on his big boy pants and move on with life. The sooner more of us do the latter, the better, I'd say!

2real Beach boy: OK, I see what you say. For me, any conversation can do without name-calling and cursing. To tell them like it is is good if it's not going overboard.
For the record, I don't hate Brian too but very much dislike Imagination. Smb. feel free to say I am not true Brian devotee - I wouldn't care.

Rei, I feel you. You have a filter. You're less impulsive than I am when it comes to posting. That's a good thing.

Not everyone is going to like the same stuff or have the same appreciation for it. Calling someone's fandom into question or claiming said individual hates the creator is ridiculous. Then again, Brian's the one with the success and acclaim...while people feel the need to defend the man from opinions. It's bloody ridiculous.
113  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 03:08:39 PM
Criticizing the music is one thing. Criticizing Brian, Melinda, or people around them personally is quite another. However, considering a criticism of any of the music equal to criticism of the people involved personally or even hatred for them is kind of a reach.

KDS shouldn't even have felt like he needed to make that his signature. If one was going to criticize Brian as a person, why hide it in criticisms of the music?

Maybe I'm overthinking it. I hope I am!

2Real beach boy:I read every post in a thread I visit. I got it 1st time. You called people making these accusations - payroll and stuff - "simple fudges". Which I said isn't fair considering they are very mild in nature and rather innocuous.

Mild in nature, yet when they continually pop up even after being consisterly rebuked, I'm certainly left with the impression that the people who make such goofy statements are rather in the high end of simple fudginess. Your mileage varies. That's cool.

I don't hate Brian. I don't like everything he's done musically. How someone can end up reaching the conclusion that someone hates the man because of that is ridiculous from where I sit.

Horses for courses.
115  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 02:37:47 PM
Did I ever imply that KDS is lacking brains? As I stated once before, he and I get on quite well. He's one of the smartest folks here.
116  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 02:33:33 PM
It's not an attack on him; it's my feeling on the rather sad state of affairs that led him to even make it his signature. KDS and I get along very well, in fact.

I've said my piece.

Loving the videos of Honkin' Down the Highway. I'm actually surprised Brian didn't pull this one out earlier.
118  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 02:18:10 PM
I don't. And don't call me Shirley! LOL
119  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Oops on: May 25, 2016, 02:09:18 PM
The fact, KDS, that you even have such a retarded signature is proof positive of a rather pantywaisted sensibility that has sadly found its way here.

Yes, I don't like NPP. I love Brian Wilson. No agenda here. Not on anyone's payroll. People who don't agree with the prevailing winds of opinion on this board don't harbor some seething hatred of the man; they just don't like something.

Grow up and deal with it. Simple fucks.

Oh, you should have seen it! A moody teenager who looked like Ripley from Alien 3 and a chromedome from Siberia helped me beat a guy named after dish detergent.
121  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Thread for arguments with or about moderation on: May 24, 2016, 09:50:57 PM
The last guy who ended up on my naughty list ended up in pieces at the hands of myself and two moody members of a boy band.
122  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Thread for arguments with or about moderation on: May 24, 2016, 09:36:26 PM
Do you want to be?
123  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Thread for arguments with or about moderation on: May 24, 2016, 09:00:39 PM
Basically, everyone here is Deadpool and this argument is skeeball...since, apparently, Deadpool likes skeeball more than vagina (or dick).
124  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Thread for arguments with or about moderation on: May 24, 2016, 07:24:36 PM
If it ain't a nut and a bolt it's not a Love thang. LOL
125  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson 2016 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour) on: May 24, 2016, 04:55:45 PM
I really hope Brian plays Honkin' Down the Highway in September when I see him...that'd make my night.
