Hi ComeBlowMyHornComeBlowMyHorn said:I am from North Wales and am friends with many at the Beaumaris band, and have spoken to a few since this post was written, as you can well imagine they weren't happy.
Having played with the band on a few occassions it saddens me that anyone would want to put them down.
Good luck to all of Beaumaris in the areas! I might well be there having a listen to you and Menai Bridge!!
Thanks for the reply here and I understand your comments - I was also sad that someone used our forum for totally the wrong reasons and totally against theMouthPiece.com 'rules for posting'.
Did you also know though that as soon as this offensive post was submitted I locked the thread, explained to everyone here what I was going to do and why, and indeed proceeded to contact the MD of Beaumaris Band to apologise on behalf of theMouthPiece.com and to explain what I was intending to do about it.
I contacted the submitter of the post, asked for an explanation for his defamatory comments and was not happy with the response. I immediately banned that user from theMouthPiece.com and deleted the majority of his posts. I feel I took the correct immediate and responsible action.
The MD of Beaumaris was very happy that I had contacted him and said he was happy with what I had done and how I handled it, and that he would pass my message on to all members of his band.
There have been no other incidents such as that one and everyone here - all the members - are committed to building a friendly, informative and thought provocing Brass Discussion Forum - which is exactly the objective I set out to achieve.
