Can't we just bring back the PLUR? I love TA for all of its information regarding new releases, set reviews and tracklistings, and some of the stuff produced in the Amateur Producers Forum. But I have read my share of flame wars on this forum and all I can do is just turn the other way and not get involved. But with so many different members with opposing view points and opinions posting on here, I just don't see how the flame wars and arguments will ever stop. TA is just like everything else, it has its good sides, and it has its bad. You just have to take them both into account while you're on here and see for yourself if the good outweighs the bad. I totally respect your post Markus and your concern for the recent downturn these forums have been heading, but with such a widespread member base here, I honestly don't see how better mod control or censorship will improve on this. In the end, it's up to the members to either behave and respect others' opinions, or to act like jerks and aggresively bash anyone whose opinion differs from theirs. But try not to let it get to you. The world needs more thoughtful and respectful 30 year olds who are more willing to debate with a person rather than flame them. Perhaps by setting this standard, we might get others to follow this path as well. just my 2 cents. BTW, I enjoy listening to your radio show.
This is my point. Schulz has made an indirect 'political' move on TA. He has in effect cornered the mods. to be on the GDJB side and encourages any anti- schulz statements as nonsense. ( mods should be independent and not influenced from labels, artists, djs, etc. well one mod. on TA actually works for the station hint)
