Gotta say, I don't see it. There's been some ugliness in the past, but
even those involved (me included) have been able to come to terms.

This board is like family we always pick on each other from thime to time , and it gets out of hand everyonce and awhile but that happens . You have to take things with a grain of salt. Just cause you use emoticons in youir post its easy to mis read the emotion in the postings at times. What you might read seems mean but they may well could be laughing or smiling as they posted it.

Yup, and then there's some people that just don't have a sense of humor, and tend to take everything as a personal attack. 8-[

Having taken my fair share of lumps, jokes,and insults, I must say the laid back feeling this board has compared to other boards, is second to none Most people on here are very friendly and helpful, kind of like hanging out with friends shooting the s#*t
I've been here a short time and have made alot of friends, and learned a hell of alot about Q
All depends on how you look at it

As much as it hurts me to admit it (about as painful as a root canal done anally)…..I……..agree with Puf (I couldn’t type the other f) . I don’t really see the negative slamming that you were talking about mrgrumpy….It’s more like a group of friends getting together and busting chops….Now that’s not to say that sometimes things don’t get out of hand or someone takes things personally…But I prefer this board to others that are out there…..I love to talk Q, but I don’t want to feel like I am in school while doing it. Although Finney does a pretty good job of that (Spell check this )…..Secondly the people here are real helpful I have yet to see a request for info go un posted no matter how obvious to a seasoned BBQer.. People here take the time to answer your questions and if they can’t they try to find someone that can…I think that if you spent more time on the board what you see as slamming is not is more of an on going joke that tends to carry over (Cappy invented that) . Now let me explain that’s not a criticism of you, and I hope you don’t take it that way….I am relatively new to the board and at first you tend to see some posts and you say to your self man these people don’t like each other…..but after a while you realize that there is a past history and people here are like family they might fight among themselves but they are there for each other when they need it…..It’s all about choices if people aren’t comfortable here then they will move on and find a dry no fun BBQ forum in which they can be a member as opposed to being called someone’s member……. :ack:
I personally have met and had good times with people from this board and am looking forward to meeting more members in person and busting some serious chops…..

Mr. Grumpy, Please don't be offended it's just the backward course nature of these goofy hillbilly's and manic yankee's to constantly talk trash to each other. A sheer lack of moral fiber, education, manners, and absolutely no self respect. It's like having an entire family with Turret's syndrome. Now STFU and have some fun.

MrGrumpy, this is by no means a bashing. I have been a moderator on a few of these sights over the past few years. I visit in an area of 20 sights weekly. It is only here that I feel completely at home. The folk here are like my family. I have met a few and plan on meeting more members of the board.

I/we moderators do try to keep the Personal Jabs under check. If you see a problem, please feel free to let us know in a PM or in the threads. Sometimes we are even guilty of jabbing some, but it is our responsability to keep this a family friendly sight and a place that our members are happy being here.

Well mrgrumpy, I agree 100%, from someone who never participates in slamming other people or dissing them in any way, I must say that this board can seem like a cruel place. And sometimes it is. I am appalled sometime at the lack of moderation and oversight.

Perhaps you could take the time today to sit down at your little computer and find some nice little nambie pambie BBQ bulletin board that you can post your "peace on Earth, goodwill toward men" BBQ information to and where no ever disagrees with anyone and nary a foul word to be written. Sounds kind of tooty-pitooty to me, not that there's anything wrong with that, I just happen to butter my bread on the other side, if you catch my drift.

But if you're a reasonably well adjusted adult over the age of 19 or so and have what might pass as an education, you'll realize that 99.999999% of the things that are said here are, said in friendship, sarcasm, honest to God honesty, down right helpful, in the spirit of assisting another human being, and yes as one family member to another.

If your skin is that thin that you can't take sarcasm, criticism, jokes, insults, and the like well perhaps lurking would be best. If you can, jump on in and join the family we'd love to have you.

I was only kiddin' you in that 1st and 2nd paragraph.
