First off, let me apologize to Spirit. I'm not backing down from what I said, but I now see where you're coming from.<P>Second, word is bond some of yall are just sick, Not in a "yo, that post was sick, dunn!", but in a there's some type of mental problem going on. The purpose of Okayplayer dot com is to have a DIALOGUE! Some of yall take it upon YOURSELF to call folks idiots, stupid, fools, assholes, dicks, etc. Da fuck is that?!? Word is bond, I can't fault anyone for wanting to leave. Granted you are not going love everyone on here, or even like anyone. Granted some of yall are young. Granted some of yall can talk shit over the internet, but clam up in real life. But for real, yall need to stop. IF A PERSON BUGS YOU THAT MUCH, WHY DON'T YOU JUST IGNORE THEM??? I'm soooo fucking tired of telling people that. So if I'm tired of it, I KNOW madd folks are too.<P>Also reverting to calling folks names WITHOUT BACKING UP YOUR SHIT IS JUST AS STUPID AND MAKES YOU LOOK UNINTELLIGENT!!!<P>Read this: "Of course you are going to disagree with other people's posts, things okayartists might do, etc. This board would be boring if everyone agreed and nobody challenged anyone on anything. Debate is encouraged. Harassing or threatening someone because you disagree is wack and spineless. Harassment and threats are not tolerated."<P>and<P>"Please refrain from posting beefs that involve you and others on the boards. Keep that to an email or an IM. If it's already bad enough to be a beef, imagine how bad it can get when you involve a whole message board!"<P>and<P>"Ignore the posts you do not like and support the ones you do. Responding to posts you dislike is a waste of energy, time, and thought that could go to an interesting post."<P>All of that were taken from the guidelines that YOU get when you register! Here's the link for those who didn't <a href="http://www.okayplayer.com/guidelines.html" target="_blank">http://www.okayplayer.com/guidelines.html</a>. Doug and Ang, can we please have the guidelines link posted on the update page or somewhere easy to get to, cuz folks are violating (yo, Burb, hit that Primo quote for me hahaha). If that adds more to your work schedule, I am sorry, but it has to be done.<P>I'm sorry and yeah I know this is a post complaining about other folks, but this has been getting to me lately, especially over in the Okayartist boards. Yes I've been guilty of doing the same thing, but I'm learning as we all should!<P>Uno<BR>Improv!?<P>"Stakes are high like my uncle is/ we both got problems, he never confronted his"---Common, "Time Travellin'"<P>Support Okayplayer.com and <a href="http://www.Boondocks.net" target="_blank">http://www.Boondocks.net</a> (for all you lazy mofos lol)

Ay, yo, Improv, we have no problems...it's all peace. I understand your point of view and take it into consideration (as to whether I come off arrogant or not <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/wink.gif">). You're not the first to say it...stand in line behind a couple of my ex-girlfriends...ha....<P>As far as whether this is in the right forum, I have a quick suggestion: shouldn't the statements addressed to the Okayplayer fam qualify for the Okayplayer board as much as statements/questions addressed to/about okayartists? Just a suggestion...<P>And by "statements addressed to the Okayplayer fam", I mean comments directly aimed at how the Okayboards are operated, not questions about the Okayplayer fam's favorite cereal...I think serious family issues among Okayplayers should be addressed in the Okayplayer board...my opinion....what does everyone else think?<P>Peace,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com</a><BR><a href="http://infiniteloop.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://infiniteloop.iuma.com</a><BR>DC hip-hop is on the rise...<P>"High grade when I create beats/if I don't get signed/I'ma be the most dope bum that ever walked the streets" - <BR>Aychell (HL, of Khemystery)<P>"If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's probably a tool of the conspiracy" - unknown
3. "Why are you still reading posts?" In response to Reply # 1
You are tired of looking at the blue-haired ladies on the nude beach. You like cellulite-wrapped breasts as much as the next man but too many of them is just numbing.<P>You are an okayaddict. Get help, brah.<P>Your idea of fun is perusing the boards looking for stray posts to delete. "New thread about Common kissing the white girl?! Die, mothafucka, die!"<P>You were hoping to bump into me. I too share an interest in hot sauce, red leather and spankings. Grrr. <P><P><P>Okaylurker no longer.<BR>Sig coming soon...
