I remember seeing one person posting in the wrong place, and when people told him so, he said 'I don't know about the rules on these boards', while he should have read the guidelines he gets when registering (sp?).<P>I agree with what other 'vets' <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/wink.gif"> wrote here (I won't add : "DON'T post the same message 7 times in a row" <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/wink.gif">). <P>I feel that the board moderators could be more severe. A lot of posts that are duplicates (or even 'triplicates') of existing topics (whether it be in the archives or on the same page of that board) still stay on the boards, same story for 'offensive' stuff.<P>Now I don't want to start the censorship debate again, cos we've had that in the past, but we have guidelines. If people violate one of those, there's no reason their post should still be on the boards. What's the use of having guidelines when they're not applied ?<P>I'm not saying the board administrators don't do their job, but maybe they don't have time since traffic has increased at an exponential rate here. If they need help, I'm willing to help out and co-moderate.<P><BR>krewcial<BR><a href="http://urgent.rug.ac.be/vinylators" target="_blank">http://urgent.rug.ac.be/vinylators<;/a><P>'We've got to change our own minds about each other.

DO kiss the Okayartists asses.<P>DONT criticize the Roots or any other okay artist in anyway, under threat of expulsion from the boards.<P>DONT have your own opinion, thats unacceptable here.<P>DO make sure you read every single post ever made on this bitch, to make sure you dont post a similar topic, or it will be erased from the boards.<P>DONT expand on any subject previously discussed on the boards.<P>DO agree with whatever the common opinion is, or else you will be accused of being a shit-starter whose only reason for a differing opinion is to get a reaction out of the okayplayers.<P>DO think of silly post topics like "who would you ghost" so you can get 300 replies next to your name, thats okay.<P>DONT express frustration in the chat rooms with the fact that these boards are run like a goddamn dictatorship, or your comp will be blocked.<P>DONT make your first post a criticism of the strengths and detriments of the Roots, because anything thereafter posted will be deemed "negative."<P><BR>"Word, cuz when you say you love me, it doesn't matter, I never take it serious bitch and laugh at ya..."<BR>-Jay Dee<P>"I must ask what goin on with rap, white kids actin black, that's like McDonalds sellin fatback..."<BR>-Common

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

I think I have to expound on that last statement.... you see.. I dont only mean that you literally give head... This goes far far faaaaaaaaar beyond that. I mean... If horse shit could have excretement.... the excretement would feed off of little micro chiggers like you. I mean... pond scum shows more class then you, which explains why females are slightly more attracted to IT then to you.... <P>Unfortunately, the pondscum is assexual, so if you make advances towards it, it will simply switch to the other team (you know... like your dad does) and go for the sex opposite of yours. This leaves you quite lonely... So I will stop now....<P>oneLOVE.<P>OkayBoricua known as...

33. "What Defines a man...."
In response to Reply # 28


          

It amazes me.<BR> <BR> A man can live his life achieving so much....He can produce Gold and Platinum Albums one after the other. He can Be a person who loves his fans and gives back to them regularly, and unconditionally. He can share his innermost feelings, emotions and thoughts with people he doesnt even know, in the hopes that it will somehow fall upon a listening ear, and have a positive effect on somebody's life. A man can dedicate his heart and soul to the betterment an entire movement, and raise the standards of an entire field...an entire CRAFT.<P> It amazes me.<P> That a person can gain the admiration of his peers, both personally, and professionally....can attain an amazing amount of respect, defeat ALL the odds and boundaries that have faced him in his life, and still hold true to his ideals. Ideals being those of which are TRULY important in life...Loved ones, Friends, and Family.<P> And it amazes me, <P> That in the same breath...in the blink of an eye...a person can take every one of those achievments and respectable qualities...all that a man has worked for, believed in, and given of himself to not only his friends, family, and associates...but to a CULTURE....and completely turn them to dust with a few ill-thought words and sentences. Just to belittle that person, and hold his own weight in a disagreement. To WIN...and to raise himself above his opposition. Dispite the insignificance of their disagreement.<P> Mans own inhumanity to man. Plain and simple. "To lift myself up, I'll bring any one who opposes my opinions, values, and feelings, down to the ground." It is THESE actions that Validate the "Crab in the Pot" theory, which has been a stigma that has brought down minorities for years. It is THIS way of thinking/acting, that put Africans on slave ships, and Jews in ovens. And it is is same way of thinking that separates so many people across the world today.<BR> <BR> "Every man for himself!"<P> Its unfortunate, though, that so many people haven't learned that they AREN'T by themselves. That we live in a world where cooperation and respect are 2 qualities NECESSARY for human beings to live together in peace. No, I'm not a hypocrite. I too, am guilty of this same crime at times. I realize that. <P> But to personally attack a person based on what you "THINK" you know about their personal life and business...knowing that you can remain hidden behind a computer screen, and that this person REALLY has no way of defending himself (not that it is needed) against your blatantly Crude, immoral remarks against their character. To bring about "Points" which hold absolutely NO validity what-so-ever, in an attempt to come across to onlookers as "Witty," "Triumphant," or "Tough???"<BR> <BR> I'm sorry. But that just doesnt seem human to me. I wont even attack your character, because frankly, from what I've read from your past Threads/responses, you have none. However, what I DO think YOU should question yourself as to why you're here. True, this is an open forum for discussion, and your constitutional right (unfortunately) grants you the ability to remain among us and express yourself freely. <BR> But remember, this is a Website dedicated to the same people you seem to dispise. And no, I dont just mean The Roots, D'angelo, The jazzyFatnastees, or Common. I'm also referring to the posters...the contributors to this site. The people who have made it as successful as it has become. I think its become quite evident over the course of the past 9 months, that Okayplayer.Com has developed into far more than just an artist website. No. It has become an *environment*...and sometimes the overall "feeling" of this environment sways from "friendly and loving" to "Chaotic." Still, what makes this place the way it is are the Contributors. We, in the end, are the ones who cause this place to become stabilized again. I dont think anyone who contributes to this message board does so with the intent of disrupting the environment we have worked so hard to create. Except, of course..for you. <P> No, this does not begin with your shameless attack on ?uestlove...it goes back to your foul mouthed, harsh review of Roots material, such as the Legondary EP, and your attempt to attack other posters who have contributed Reviews, opinions, etc..accusing them of plagiarism, ignorance, etc (See: GoodRev's "Born again" Review..The Lesson).<BR> So, if this is the case, and your sole intent IS to draw attention to yourself, and to become such a negative, disruptive force in On these message boards...then...Why are you here??<BR> There are other places for you to concentrate your anger. Go to Chatrooms around the net. Start your own message board, head to Rec.Music.Hip-Hop, or some other forum which does not seem to frown upon the actions of people like you. But if you insist on staying here, RESPECT the people around you....Particularly the people who MAKE this site work.<BR> This is An artist website. Remember that. Its not made for the people who dont like what an artist represents. Its made for those of us that appreciate all that an artist has done for a particular genre of music, what they represent, etc. Its made for the FANS. So, if you're not a fan, and you dont appreciate what this is all about...wouldnt it be best for all of us if you just took your opinions elsewhere?<BR> Think about that.<BR>PEACE,<BR> NazDak<P><BR>

I never out and out disrespected quest or anybody like he just did. I made a little sinicle commentary on how people reasonlessly act shiest towards me, and this nigga telling me to kiss his ass. That shit didnt make no sense. But now, again, Im the bad person, because I responded to his insult with an insult, when i didnt deserve to be insulted in the first place...does that make sense to you?<P>I aint got no types of beef with nobody on this board, but mufuckas insist on trying to make me look like Im saying shit that i dont. Ive had 4 or 5 people send emails to my address saying yo, thats foul how niggas got you all fucked up on there, I feel you. <P>As far as this stupid shit, talkin about who gon see me, Im not fightin nobody over no internet shit, for one thats wack, for two, Im a grown ass man, if Im fighting, its for a real reason. Now if somebody wants to see me on some trying to threaten my shit or one of my peeps, I got a glock 27 with a CCW, so that shit stays on me. And we all roll like that. So if you want to test, you can go cuz a nigga like me wont even get charged for it, so...I be at all the little functions, and I'm down with 50% of the niggas there, and anybody that was at Andrews a month ago when that nigga came up on stage with that bullshit knows, so if you want to have a lot of enemies in the D, fuck with me. If you want to say wassup, holla at me. Im too old to be fuckin with no stupid shit...<P><BR>"Word, cuz when you say you love me, it doesn't matter, I never take it serious bitch and laugh at ya..."<BR>-Jay Dee<P>"I must ask what's goin on with rap, white kids actin black, that's like McDonalds sellin fatback..."<BR>-Common<P>"My style's vicious, I rap in the lab and break dishes, my words wear jet black hoods, lookin suspicious..."<BR>-La the Darkman

Im not gonna start calling names or hurling insults n what not, I had seen a post or 2 of yours amenhotep and I knew you were capable of starting some ish, but I wasnt aware of the extent, no one can stop you from coming here (you could be sausage gut for all we know, if youre not, dont get mad at me and think I just called you a name because I didnt), because you can always start shit under a new name/new email address or whatever. All I really can say is do you really want to be here just to be pissing people off or do you want to try to express whatever your feelings may be in a civilized/proper manner? Excuse me in advance for being a "bitch" and trying to play the peaceful role instead of all the drama, its what Ive done best all my life. Possibly it would also be best for you to take the drama elsewhere.<P><P><P><BR>"Intellectual property I got the title and the deed, I pay rent with the tears and sweat and what I bleed"- Talib Kweli<P>"You got hamburger beef I'll french fry ya cause drag done ate your food"- Drag-On

In response to Reply # 39


          

I can understand to a certain degree where you're coming from Amen, cause some people read waaaaaay too bloody much into my posts and then respond with somethin way outta left field and make assumptions about me as a person, when all they really know is the words....<P>whether any of us like it or not, we are judged by what we put up on this board, before meeting people I was thought of as somewhat of a bitch, actually a big shit starting bitch, but anyone that has met me knows that I am anything but, unless you really piss me off....<P>now, people have judged you based on your posts and for the most part what they've seen is an asshole...maybe it's not what you say but how you say it....on a serious note, most of the shit you say comes out all wrong, and while you may not intend on disrespecting people, your choice of words has led them to believe otherwise...<P>just like atruhead said, no one can stop you from coming here, and there should be no reason why they should, and no one can really censor what you put out there, you are entitled to freedom of speech, but just choose your words and phrasing better, there is such a thing as being off colour, and a lot of us have been in that position at some point in time...<P>I don't hate you, but I can understand why other people might, in the end, this is only the internet and most of us may never meet in person, so you won't need to brandish your gun my man, it's cool....just respect us and we'll respect you...if someone doesn't like what you say or how you say it, take the criticism and look into it, if you think they're full of shit, tell em to blow it out their cake hole, but I'm sure you'll find that what others are saying does have some merit...<P>*****************************************************************************<P>eff a serious quote for a minute, these two are hilarious.....<P>"if your mind can see it then your vagina can achieve it"---Jumecca's advice on how to get layed in the 2000<P>"God don't like ugly people, and those mufucka's are going to hell with gasoline draws on"---Heavenlei

>DO kiss the Okayartists asses. <P>WE respect the artists work (if you done/cant, go listen to some ja rule or drag on) and we show them love, whats wrong with that? It goes far sometimes, but chill out its not that bad.<P><BR>>DONT criticize the Roots or any other <BR>>okay artist in anyway, under threat <BR>>of expulsion from the boards.<P>Its not what you say its how you say it, I shouldnt even be wasting my time telling you this stuff, youre probably older than me and know this by now. You dont like something? Constructively let your feelings be known, negativity isnt welcomed.<P><BR> <BR>>DONT have your own opinion, thats unacceptable <BR>>here.<P>Since this is probably relating to ?uest, the okayartist that posts the most, I'll put it this way, Im not gonna say I all out agree with every opinion he's stated on these boards, but a lot of the time the man is on point IN MY OPINION. If you have a different opinion, you can express thta but once again its how you express it that matters. Maybe you just have issues with people not listening to and respecting what amenhotep has to say because maybe amenhoteps views are so radical that not many can agree with/respect them. Or maybe amenhotep likes the roots but just wants to start some mess.<BR> <P> >DO make sure you read every single <BR>>post ever made on this bitch, <BR>>to make sure you dont post <BR>>a similar topic, or it will <BR>>be erased from the boards.<P>If theres something of worthy notice going on in pop culture/hip-hop culture chances are many of the hundreds of us posters know about it, somebody has to post on it first. If its something like "lets talk about the mos def album that just dropped" or a hot topic, check at least up to page 2 to see if theres a thread on it,if you have something to say most likely you will get noticed (is that your motive in this all?) you dont need your own thread about "ok mos def is out, this is MY favorite cut, whats yours?" that can go under the first previously mentioned example. PLEASE I BEG EVERYBODY NOW, IF THE ROOTS WIN A GRAMMY WEDNESDAY AND YOU SEE A POST ON IT, RESPOND UNDER THAT POST (but whos gonna listen to me?) <BR> <P><BR>>DONT expand on any subject previously discussed <BR>>on the boards.<P>Not under your own post if one already still visibly exists, if its already been said a million times, and if it can be found in the archives.<P><BR>>DO agree with whatever the common opinion <BR>>is, or else you will be <BR>>accused of being a shit-starter whose <BR>>only reason for a differing opinion <BR>>is to get a reaction out <BR>>of the okayplayers.<P>Guilty conscience got you typing that one? as I said above you can have your opinion, its all about yadda yadda yadda<P><BR> >DO think of silly post topics like <BR>>"who would you ghost" so you <BR>>can get 300 replies next to <BR>>your name, thats okay.<P>In defense of hak (not that he needs it, the bul' takes no shit, was that good philly slang hak?) hes a light hearted cat, who made a light hearted post, I dont think he did it to get 300 responses. Matter fact, people started creating their own who would you ghost questions, ladies spoke up about who they found attractive, fellas did the same, and with many questions comes MANY answers from many okayplayers. If you dont like it dont click on it, at least thats what I do unless of course Im trying to bring some peace to dead some drama started by amenhotep. Its not like 300 plus different people all like hak and dont like you (or maybe it is like that, who knows)<P><BR>>DONT express frustration in the chat rooms <BR>>with the fact that these boards <BR>>are run like a goddamn dictatorship, <BR>>or your comp will be blocked.<P>Nigga please. If youre of other descent then fill it in whatever your slang is, (__________) please.<P><P>>DONT make your first post a criticism <BR>>of the strengths and detriments of <BR>>the Roots, because anything thereafter posted <BR>>will be deemed "negative." <P>How did you say what you were trying to get across in your first post? Im not gonna respond to your opinion cursing you out, or disrespecting you, but some people take this seriously. Imagine you sitting right behind spike in msg shouting "the knicks aint shit!!!!, fuck the knicks!!!" Im pretty sure those werent your emotions towards the roots, its just an example though, put yourself in the position of the msg example I just gave, now come on back to okayplayer. I hope you can see where im coming from.<P><BR>I want to see some good come of this, got me up here playing your damn free psychiatrist n shit.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

As far as avoiding deletion from the okayartist board.<BR>Here goes:<BR>1.You post about something where the answer can EASILY be found in the archives or in a thread or on the updates page.<BR>2.You post a subject that already has a thread about it..(IE. posting about what you think Dangelo's new single should be when you should really just write a REPLY to D's initial thread..posting about Voodoo being #1 when there already is a thread about it..etc.etc..<P>3.Posting with the subject line saying "Questlove read this"(If you have a question directly for him email askquest22@aol.com)..."Hub read this.." etc..this is clearly against the guidelines..the board is not a tool that is to be used directly to contact a band member..DONT do this.<P>4.You post about something that does NOT pertain to any of the okayplayer artists..those being Common Roots Dangelo Jazziefatnastees and the featured artist.<P>I copied this from a previous thread..but people never read you know.<P>As far as posting and interacting on the board in general..just try to be honest, but if you plan on bringing an opinion you KNOW people will disagree with, come prepared with support for your argument..y'all have the right to have any opinion, but remember everyone has the right to disagree with your opinion..its not hating.<BR>This is why we get those longass threads over and over again that turn into dissfests.<P>I'm sure Improv can add alot more, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ THE ARCHIVES!!!!<BR>80% of your answers are there.<BR>I will add more, but I am going to Florida tommorow..<BR>no boards for me<BR>no computers<BR>no okayadmin<BR>just sunshine.<P><BR>Peace,<BR>Steve<P>Your post will get deleted IF you dont read: <a href="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/general1/3292.html" target="_blank">http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/general1/3292.html<;/a>

DO- feel free to voice your opinions on any okayartist's piece of work (ie: voodoo, like water for chocolate, the once & future, etc.), other okayplayer's posts/threads, or create your own...(everyone has the right to hold their opinion, whether it's by agreeing or critiquing)<P>DON'T- a)knock an opinion or piece of work, strictly for the sake of disagreeing and separating yourself from the masses (incorporoate some type of substance to support your ideas and opinions)<BR> - b)abuse this luxury of communicating directly with the artists...it's a privilege to have them listen to our questions and concerns, let's not take it for granted that they'll respond<BR> - c)disrepect another brother's/sister's opinions/beliefs because they disagreed with yours(as i mentioned above, eveyone's entitled to there own opinions and they don't have to be a "hater" or "dickrider" because they see things differently than you)<P>in conclusion, i've been frequently posting on this site since since last march, but i don't consider my self a vet or an "original okayplayer"...i'm just a 29 year-old fan of the roots and good music in general...if i find that i hold the same opinion on a certain topic (ie: voodoo is hot!)as the majority of okayplayers, then i don't consider myself "jockin'" quest, d, or anyone else...i think it's love that others are inspired by music in the same way...if my opinion goes against the grain of the masses, i hope others RESPECT it even if they disagee...negativity has been the cause of a lot of players limiting their posts or better yet, not posting at all...love is love y'all...peace!

In response to Reply # 24


          

I hate to say it, but things arent always pretty on the okayboards... After having only been a passive observer (and thus some of the fault is mine) for a long time, i now feel compelled after reading these messages to respond. I feel like the okayboards are becoming some sort of closed society where new members are not welcomed with open arms, but where they are put through a series of tests to see if they are "worthy" of membership as if this was some wack ass college fraternity. Is it not enough that 1) they checked out the site? 2) mustered up the courage to post (cause trust me, Quest can post some scalding messages!) If thats how it is, then thats how it is... i just hope the site is for everyone, including the kid who just picked up his first roots CD last week and has yet to blessed by the old shiii... Peace to all... <P>my styles are kinda phat, reminiscient of a whale- Q-tip<P>Je suis celui que tu detestes, mais celui que ta femme aime... -Rocca (La Cliqua)
