Posting Complaint.
on: July 16, 2022, 11:22:34 AM
Hello! I request that when sombody post here, can it be that foul words will be blocked if anybody types and then posts it? Some new members or younger people might bump in to those and you know. Plus it is kind of far to the whole purpose of this forum-- piano. Piano piano piano it is all about that. Even at the 'Anything but piano' People still talk things about piano. At the pf they post about piano or relating to piano. Thats what it is all about! And adults (or seniors) aren't the only people playing piano. So it is kind of disturbing to have members (I won't say their username to lessen you-know-what) to post bad words and stuff. I mean, does he even play piano? Did he come here to scream all over the place and change fonts or what? That's all.Thanks.

This forum has run quite well without the call for irrational censorship (or what you call bad words example of which you deleted since it is not even a "bad word"), the fact that moderators mostly stay out of the way is what made pianostreet special as it is, sorry we don't need to change imho. All this coming from someone who has been a member for around 2 weeks, seems rather odd. That is all.

So you would rather have this website run around with trash by members covering the good of the creator? You would rather have it not improved so it will stay special? Is that it? You prefer moderators to stay out of the way so it won't become an ordinary website. Then why do moderators exist? Why is there a PF website in the first place to take suggestions from members to upgrade if it is better for piano street to stay the same for all eternity?

You've been here 2 weeks and calling other members content trash, what is wrong with you?? I've been here like almost 20 years providing help to people over the years for all matters piano. Why don't you stop complaining and make the forum better as you think it should be by posting useful content? Or if all you want to do is attention seek continue on, we can see your post history.

OK so you've been here 20 years. Nice! Should I call you master? By the way why do you seem so affected? You are so agressive you seem to be guilty of something in the past 20 years you have been here. Also, there is a saying 'Thinkers are doers' I'm sure you know that I just wanted to make things clear.
And lastly, you sound more complaining than I do. 🙄

Yes unlike your 2 weeks yet you think you already know how the forum should be run and whats wrong wtih it and whats wrong with certain members?

Should I call you master?
I am a master of several disciplines so you can if you want to.

By the way why do you seem so affected?
This is a fragment sentence which has no meaning but only to yourself.

You are so agressive you seem to be guilty of something in the past 20 years you have been here.
Poor guess work on your behalf. How am I being aggressive? What do I have to be guilty for? What has 20 years got to do with anything?

Also, there is a saying 'Thinkers are doers' I'm sure you know that I just wanted to make things clear.
What are you trying to make clear? You are all over the place, I guess you make sense to yourself though. Where does attention seeking fit into it? lol

And lastly, you sound more complaining than I do. 🙄
At least I don't create useless threads like yourself complaining about how a forum which has run longer than you have been alive functions. 2 week member thinking they know what should change? Good on ya lol.

Hmmm. Let's start with the first line since you started with mine. Seems like you were the one so angry you wanted to attack my two weeks just because of a simple post. This wasn't even for you! Anyway I won't talk about that anymore.

So does that mean you have been here for 20 years you are a piano street expert? We all have brains you know. And unless you are a zombie who eats thousands of brains but can't have one, well, you won't be here in this post replying with rage.
You wanted moderators to stay off here because 'that's what made it special' so why don't you take a break for a moment and then get some sleep so I could have some peace?

I am a master of several disciplines so you can if you want to.

What are your diciplines? Flies? 😂

It has no meaning only to you.
Sometimes things just have no meaning because others don't get it.


Poor guess work on your behalf. How am I being aggressive? What do I have to be guilty for?

You are being aggressive by making arguments in a post you call "complaing" and not helping at all.
Ask yourself what you have to be guilty of. I'm not a mind reader.

What has 20 years got to do with anything?
What are you trying to make clear?

Well you make my 2 weeks so important well lets make yours!

Oh gosh you can't understand?



You are all over the place, I guess you make sense to yourself though. Where does attention seeking fit into it? lol
At least I don't create useless threads like yourself complaining about how a forum which has run longer than you have been alive functions. 2 week member thinking they know what should change? Good on ya lol.



I am all over the place? Well you are the one here angry and correcting so many like you are a manager or something.

And at least I don't create issues like this you created. And a 20 year member doesn't know what to change? Ha-ha.

You continue to think I'm angry which is just wrong you merely are projecting your own emotions. You are a 2 week member thinking you know it all where it's obvious you don't, but thats teens for you they think they know it all. Lol

I have a lot more brains than yourself who doesn't even know how to use Google and asks obsolete questions on the forum instead. Not to mention you complain the forum is quiet when you don't even respond to people answering your questions on the multiple threads you have created.

Agree with liw that no change is necessary. I think what we need here is to have more good posts and discussions, there are still lots of things that haven't been discussed.

You always have the option of reporting a post to the moderator if you think it is particularly offensive. Rarely, the moderator has banned posters who were consistently and aggressively insulting, but it has to be pretty egregious. This place is far more civil than many internet forums, and you can always just not engage with people you find unpleasant. I know that "just ignore them" seems pretty lame if you are being constantly inundated with offensive posts, but that's not really the case here, I think. Most folks are pleasant and helpful.

Well said! Moderators are present here on the sidelines in case they might be needed, not in order to conduct themselves in a heavy-handedly dictatorial manner; were the latter to apply instead, the forum would undoubtedly be demeaned thereby and at greater risk of censorship, which I imagine few members would welcome.

Shall we ask Susan to come back and moderate ? She'd soon sort everybody out.
