Yeah I was not referring necessarily to politics or forums or anything specific. A variety of viewpoints and ideas will help almost anything.

As for DC, I noticed a thread about our drums there a few weeks ago. There was a few misconceptions about what we do, so I thought I'd register to offer clarification, but I think my membership application was declined. Wouldn't let me log in. Probably just as well really, as my presence there would probably not be welcomed by Glen - we've had our moments.

But that's the crux of the issue mate. You don't have to say or do anything outrageous to set him off anyway. The guy just has no ability for basic social interaction. He flips his lid at the drop of a hat, runs off and sulks, cries foul and turns it into everyone else's problem for "not playing nicely" with him. Bugger that. That sense of entitlement is just toxic and exactly why he was banned repeatedly to begin with. Never in all my born days have I seen so many have to tread on eggshells for fear of offending one man.......one man who's expectations are unreasonable from the outset.

You strike me as a level headed member mate, never out to deliberately offend or antagonise. Why the hell should you check yourself at every turn in case he can't cope? The problem is his, not yours.

I wish all the very best for him over at DC, really I do. I wish him no ill will at, but he needs to toughen up....and fast.....or else nothings gonna change for him regardless of what forum he posts on.

Hmmmm. 164 posts about a guy that was banned here. Seems like he's getting more play here now than when he was actually a member. No real comment other than that....just an interesting observation.....

As Mark said, DC is a great forum to enjoy also............it's not like we have to choose one over the other. I enjoy coming here, DC and also a couple of other forums......all the better to learn and broaden our knowledge IMO

Andy, I wonder why your membership would have been denied. You are extremely knowledgable and always seem to help anyone who needs it...........I know you've helped me.

Do you want me to address it with the mods at DC and find out if there are any issues? Just doesn't make sense to me.

Thank you for your kind offer. TBH, I only wanted to clarify some points on the thread about our drums, but it's probably better that I keep away, at least for now.

The burning question I have...

Does DC have a 20 character minimum?

I just looked at the members list to see if Bongo John still had a profile. I was hoping to call up one of his threads, or at least, one of the threads he featured on, but alas, I failed (mods, if you can find something, that would be cool).

Bongo John was actually a good player. He had much to offer, & that's the real shame of it all. Even the slightest criticism of his playing / disagreement with his take on things, or indeed, any hint of lack of attention, & he would launch into a tirade about how undervalued he was, how deserved of praise he should be, how the music industry just didn't get his talent, etc, etc, etc. His reaction was so crazy, it was amusing to say the least, but also very sad. Both I and other members tried to reach out to him, but he was having non of it. I assume he went off to find attention somewhere else. Pity - good player with interesting performance ideas.

Then there was that other guy (forget his username) who got very upset because other members would dare to "muscle in" on his drummer chick attracting thread. Seriously deluded individual.

I thought as such Arky. If I remember correctly, he asked for all traces of his activity to be removed. Personally, I'd have made it a sticky :)

Phew, for one minute, I thought you meant me. I do play wind chimes, but we're not a custom drum manufacturer. Anyhow, I'm only deluded, Bongo John was seriously deluded ;)

Ah, that'd be Trevor the drummer......his time here was fleeting. I only recall him because of some hilarious PM's and messages he left. Wish I still had them. Great stuff!!

Trevor was a muppet of the highest order......and he didn't know it, which made it all the funnier.

FWIW, I miss Bongo John.........and Trevor for that matter. Two guys who no matter what they did, always made you feel better about yourself.........because they shone a bright light on just how much worse it could all be. :-)

Should I be perfectly honest? I think it's wrong to even start a thread like this.
Noone should be following Sticks and warn the world wherever he's going.
I mean that's actually not much better than Sticks leaving unfriendly comments
on DW member's youtube accounts, is it?

I actually miss Stix. He was always civil to me but I really try to stay out of some of the more argumentative threads. I really prefer to just discuss gear and look at pretty pictures.

I'm still in contact with Kevin if that's who Duncan is referring to. He is well, just made a new snare for me. 14x7 with Slingerland lugs.

I am no friend of Glen's but I agree with Arky that the premise of this thread is unethical. People can change if given the chance. Not saying they will, but they can.

Had a look at the forum rules at DC and they seem very strict about promotion of products on the site.

Just checked the thread and I see what you mean. That particular pic has a heavy rack that I've not seen on the other Guru photos and someone there rightly (IMO) pointed out that it detracted from the look. But the false impression is that all Gurus have that heavy hardware which, of course, is not the case.

Once I pay the exorbitant ransom demanded by the organised criminal gang currently holding my new drums hostage I might join DC and post a pic on the thread.

Looks like the OP hasn't offered anything up since he started this thread. Over a week ago. Meanwhile, some cat is talkin' smack about the new Saturns over at DC, so Sticks may be unleashing himself, soon.

Hahahaha, so perfectly put! I'm still looking at the tracking & seeing no movement, but they are at least on the right continent.

I never really understood why everyone was so concerned with that guy. IMO too much was made of him. I always thought his gimmick was pretty tame, compared to some of this forum's more caustic past misfits. Yeah, I've gotten Glen's pms too, but they were never so bad that I couldn't see them for what they were. Truthfully, I always felt a little sorry for that guy, whereas there were others who trolled me that to this day I would love to punch in the mouth.

Over 7 years here, I've seen dazed and confused, jealous, contemptuous, belligerent and delusional. Then there have been gear hounds. It has been my experience to observe that most are very good guys and I've learned a lot from them. However...I get in some small part where most of you are going with this. It was indeed unusual to see such loyalty for equipment he neither sponsored nor especially cared much about playing....Then to tell your sordid life story on a drum forum. Who does that?

Meh...whatever rocks his boat.
