Did I miss something? Was there like some massive spillover of drunkship spam in other forums? Was someone personally harrased?

Otherwise I don't even understand the point of this thread, the idea that we should close a forum or kick people out becuase they don't care about tmv is ridiculous.

[Lawl] lets ban everyone who doesn't make at least one tmv related post a week [/lawl]

I used to really dislike that sense talk end guy
then I realized that he may only be 15
and he can't even legally drive yet
and is still in like 9th grade
and probably has to be back home by 8 o clock

but he does a good job at moderating the main forum
because he makes them really angry
and nothing is funnier than angry TMV geeks who NEED to talk about cedric's pants

very true

Well, if I had gotten my permit earlier, I would be able to legally drive on October 29.

10th grade, fool.

No bedtime, either.

Carruthers, although I am of the opinion that the members of this forum who dislike the band as a whole go off and create their own forum to enjoy, I am not going to try and get anybody to leave, because I realize the futility of it all.

sense talk end, just wondering

you're from texas, right

are you also of the opinion that those who disagree with the direction of the administration need to GIT OUT OF OUR CUNTRY or something like that?


I was born in New York City and raised in Boonton, New Jersey. I have lived in the most liberal city in Texas for a little over 2 years.

I'm not a fan of the current administration.

Anyway, I'd like to say again that the moderation team is putting forth some effort to try to curb some of the crappiness. Expect to see something soon.

Although I wish Drunkship was a place for TMV fans to discuss whatever, for some strange reason this band has attracted people who lose interest in the band quickly but love to live second lives through message boards, hence the popularity of Drunkship, especially among those who no longer visit the main forum. As far as I am concerned, if no one's breaking the rules, there's no reason to punish or exile anyone, even if they no longer enjoy the band.

The real issue is, Drunkship has become really spammy and the content is such that it caters only to those who basically live there, so at this point a TMV fan can't wander into Drunkship to have a discussion, since they are greeted with spam, inappropriate content, and a shitload of members telling them to GTFO. That is the problem with Drunkship.

well i guess cedric and omar should be glad that there are superfans like firstrays that feel the need to decide who can and cannot post on a message board !

hey maybe cedric and omar will even invite you backstage !

maybe they will even let you take a 'toke' off of one of their 'doobies' ! (that is street slang for marijuana cigarettes)

i once enjoyed the mars volta and now i don't really care about them

regardless i feel like my being part of this community is valid

there are tons of people in the same boat as me

now who here is going to tell me to the get the fuck out?

seriously i'm waiting for someone to tell me to do just that

go ahead

i dare you


lol, I am saying take off offensive things that we all know exists in drunkship, that are clearly stated in the fucking rules when you sign up you fucking douche bag, I don't care what your opinion is about volta or your whatever it is you talk about, just people get into areas that are out of order, I am talking about the moderators not cleaning this shit up, if you havn't seen these areas go to drunkship. This message board has limitations, you agree to these limitations when you sign up.

well people come and go in drunkship and there are alot of people posting there now who weren't posting there this time last year

so its not impossible for someone who posts exclusively in the tmv section to move into drunkship
every single drunkshipper was a tmv section person at one point or another

"GTFO"?
I havn't heard anybody said GTFO since like june of 06

and if you think drunkships is any different now than it has been in the past two years, then you must not visit drunkships a whole lot


GTFO
