Bans


Dear DPFF posters,

after seeing the forum became dominated by some people wishing above all to be rude to each other and create personal as well as general feuds, I have decided to ban these posters. It was clear that there was no hope of things getting better by themselves.

This was a difficult solution as we do not like to ban anyone. However, there seemed to be no other way in trying to return the forum closer to its original purpose, which is about sometimes heated, but above all good spirited discussions on Deep Purple and related artists (and, well, films, football etc.).

The transition will no doubt turn out difficult and will take time. It is also possible that the banned users will try, and probably will, turn up in some guises. If not for other purpose than revenge.

To minimize this, we will attempt to keep a closer eye on the forum from now on. I hope you all understand that this is a hobby for us.

From all of you - us - I ask for patience and a more friendly approach to others, no matter how passionate the topic at hand.

Let's all try to make the forum a nice place to hang out and exchange ideas at.

These are drastic measures, but there comes a time when tough decisions must be made. Perhaps the troublemakers will now go back to the cave where they belong.

Good luck cleaning this place, mate. Let's see how long time it takes before they are back.

"I can only repeat what another poster wrote in another topic. MijF, you really are a moron. That's the only issue here." Rezi, [sign in to see URL] in the Music Maker section.

How can the moderators and the administrator of this forum expect regular posters to behave when posts like the above appear? In my humble opinion it seems like a few ground rules has gone over someones head. When things get out of hand should not the adm pull out of the arguement, and contact the other poster(s) by mail or PM to see if things could be worked out in a siviliazed manner?

I have not been here for long. It took me about a couple of weeks to see things as they are, and that is why I rarely log on or post. There are not any discussions going on. There are mostly only petty arguements where the adm and mods take part instead of cooling things down.

Weird place for sure emoticon

True. But, in a way, a funny one also. More politically correct forums are quite boring.

Hi Stratobastard,

we are sorting things out with Mr. Mijf. Meanwhile, enjoy his golden oldies, they certainly last several reads!
