At the same time if you have someone who lacks any kind of self-awareness and doesn't give any thought about the way his posting is going to be received, it's almost a recipe for conflict. This board is about communication and if you're not good at reading how your posts are going down, indeed are almost willfully impervious to it, then there's going to be problems.
But why should one poster have to give any thought to how a handful of other posters might receive those posts? No one here posts threads that are universally received with open arms but they are still able to post without being harassed.
Most of us don't give a fuck what what Googa or anyone else posts about on the music sections of this board. It's a handful of BCB wanna be police or wannabe comedians or wannabe celebrities, or whatever they are, that care. And the rest of us are reminded of it every time he posts. I know which action makes the board less tolerable for me and I don't think I'm alone.
Why do a half dozen or so members get to decide what one other member deserves to be able to post in the music sections of this space?
You're missing the point.
The point isn't whether some posters get to decide what he should or shouldn't post, I'm not suggesting anything should be policed in that way. My point was that Googa's problems stemmed in the main from not being capable of considering whether what he was posting was interesting or relevant or whatever.
I mean let me ask you this if you are at a dinner party, do you just feel you should say what the hell you like and talk for as long as you want and if it bores others then who gives a fuck? Or do you try to engage with others, get on their wavelength, think of funny or interesting things to say, ask questions of others..you know all that social stuff.
I think a lot of Googa's problems with that were due to his condition, which is a shame.
