Why are we so polite here ?

    I also post on some sites, mostly football related, and I am pleasently surprised at how polite the discussions here generally remain.

    Is this because banding is such a small world that we are all bound to meet sometime ?

    Or are bandsmen (and women) just nice people ?

    Most musicians (any genre other than some rock bands) aren't rough *bleeped*. :)

    Kepps: Don't try to beat the bleeper please.. it's a principle thing..

    Could also be because we have moderators who actually care about keeping things in check.

    Behave, or we shall Blast thee...

    nothing like the threat of gbh to keep things nice and friendly.. .;)

    Seriously, it's because (apart from the odd spanner) folks at tMP are just a good bunch of people.. ;)

    Thanks Robert for that comment... it is always great for our mods to get some recognition and consideration for what they do... they really do work hard to maintain the integrity of tMP and I am very grateful to them all for for so doing.

    Stevetrom: Many thanks go to you too, for your kind comments. It could also be down to the fact that we all work hard to enforce a strict 'family friendly' code of conduct on tMP. We welcome heated discussions on any subject really, but flaming, offensive, or objectionable posts are usually picked up and dealt with very effectively and quickly by the team... which I think is something that tMP'ers really appreciate.

    You said it boss man!!!!

    It's nice to be able to talk without the fear of being beaten up just 'cos you think differently to someone else.

    I'll agree with anyone bigger than me. Small people have to pay :)

    Yes, we do (I'll speak for everybody, I doubt there will be much dissent :) )

    I've been on many different forums, on many different subjects, and this is by far the best-moderated. The mods on this forum always seem to be around, but don't get in the way of the fun. That's a delicate balance to maintain.

    I agree with all the above, but have to say it's most likely because we are all simply lovely jubbly people!!:D :D :D :D :D

    Now wait just one cotton-pickin'-minute there. tMPers are some of the hardest, roughest meanest people on the planet. I mean, some of us grew up on the mean streets of Shrewsbury fer crying out loud! Anyone who says different will get plugged fuller of holes than a week-dead rattlesnake that's been eaten by termites. Just as soon as I've finished my Ovaltine....

    Yeah, when the European Brass Band Championships were organized in Brussels a few years ago, we had to take even more safety precautions than for the Euro 2000 football championships. All those brass band hooligans... :evil:

    had a nice hip-hop gent in the union last night tell me to "stop giving it" or he would "take me outside"... not sure what this means, but he seemed friendly enough...
