Well Greenose, I think i get some of what you are saying and i think i read at least most of the posts in that one thread that got deleted. I saw it actually the same way I think Bluesman was saying. I just took it as genuine concern, not telling Joe what to do and definitely not in any way indicating it was the only thing one has to worry about. in fact i think the posts following the original one in that thread did indeed make it seem as if something else was originally said, for whatever reasons.... plus it was no where near the first time something similar has been said.
I admit I am a 'mega' fan or what have you but concern for Joe's well being is also a concern for the continuation of the music and the man we care about and appreciate, so yeah that is about the music IMO in many ways.
I will dwell on it a bit more but honestly the way I read your beginning post in this thread was more overstepping the mark than what i think you were talking about. Where is the mark BTW?...... I missed the meo apparently. I also realize that maybe i misinterpreted your intent. it happens to me and just about everyone here and i work on not doing it but i know it still happens. i am sorry for it.
I also know Bluesman has gotten labeled off forum even by me in the past. I got to know him better and also I have learned more about how some of that came about and I do believe there is a little bit of hater jealousy behind it with a large helping of embellishment to feed it - not by anyone posting here necessarily but i know there has been ^&^*( said about him behind his back that may have influenced the replies he got, maybe not... So its hard to look at that thread for exactly just what it was because Roy has been backstabbed and bad mouthed off forum before so its hard to know if the thread would have gone the same way if someone else has started it saying the same thing. just how i saw it....Thats loaded and it is old off topics news but only said to try to help make a point. there are a few who have a distinct opinion of some of us based on other's misreading their intent. It really bugs me to think Joe might not then read as objectively as possible because of it which could affect his opinion of any of us. so in some ways what you warn about could actually part of what caused your warning/request/analysis in a way. just one way to look at it. I wouldn't even mention anything here if it didn't seem like you were specifically calling him out.
I realize you are talking about many things here but the only thing that i am fully agreeing on is that we should all cut each other some slack if that was part of what you said. I am doing my best to look at your post as what you said,' not intending to offend anyone 'but somehow it didn't exactly sound welcoming to new posters particularly.
i dunno.......still not making a judgement here on what you said but i do feel it was important to defend the one thread, the rest of it is not specific enough for me to be able to be sure enough of what you really mean to comment.
just my opinion thus far, please ask me for any clarification before making any assumptions about what i said. I don't think its fair for any of us to influence Joe's view of any of us or our posts by how we may have read or misread any negative intention. I have been guilty and have been victim and its a mission of mine to try to minimize that when I can./ i feel this thread warranted a bit of defense. forgive me if i am wrong. i am always learning.
Joe if you read this, you know who luvs ya most
anyone - please email me to discuss if you want. i do want to learn and i do want to always be better/ find better ways but i also won't let my friend get mislabeled even if he can handle it.
I and probably and many others did not read the original post. But after reading everything here I think I do not need to know.
