    New to me as well. It makes sense, and is needed in this day and age. Be kind.

    Just remember---no matter where you go, there you are.

    I wish Facebook would adopt this policy, the only reason I go there these days is for the Gretsch fourms.

    I’m on board with it. The other Gretsch board has their, “Don’t be a jerk,” but it’s only intermittently adhered to.

    None of us would be here but for sex. And for many of us in our 40s and 50s, drugs too . . . .

    I’m kind of joking..... kind of.
    The mood tends to be a little grumpier there than it is here.
    I pop in a few times a week just to look around.

    That was the first thought to my head, well almost, drugs never came to mind but sex sure did. Wait, I'm a dude, it's in my mind constantly anyway!

    Truth right there. I got royally flamed on my second post over there because the question had been asked before. T’hell with that. I never made a third post. This site is the only public forum, on any topic, I’ve found where civility and respect reign.

    I try to keep a friendly and mutually respectful atmosphere, but I couldn’t do it without the help of the members. I was over at TDPRI, recently, and saw this, so I requested that they add it here as well. Amazingly, several people saw fit to use this thread to express their defiance. Well, a little cleanup and things are better.

    A bit of advice, if you post something just to see how long it will be before the post is deleted, expect a little vacation from G-T. Likewise, misspelling profanity to get to past the filters is really not a good idea.

    Thanks.

    I’ll have to add that in the next iteration. :)

    I guess they're serious, my post was clearly a joke, however, the post was immediately deleted.

    IMPORTANT: Treat everyone here with respect, no matter how difficult!
    No sex, drug, political, religion or hate discussion permitted here.

    That's simple for me : uglyness, wickedness in any form ? I leave immediately.

    Les cons sont partout ; le plus difficile est de ne pas devenir comme eux.
    (The idiots are everywhere; the most difficult thing is not to become like them.)

    That's why I subscribe on so very few forums - and none of them are French : a shame for my name that is French for more than 12 centuries....

    Yes, synchro, I agree : a forum is what both their moderators and members do with it.

    A+!
