|I think it's in the nature of us all!! We build/create cliques. That's normal!!|
The question is what kind of cliques!! 'n' I know MG didn't mean the "good" cliques!! 'n' there're other things here too. For an example:
One member is not online for a couple of days because of other businesses. "Oh.. she/he comes back when she/he is a true fan!!"
What a fricken statement!! I'm just a good n true fan when I stay all the time?? When she/he comes back: "Oh... you're just a true fan!!"
One member is offline just for a single day!! "Oh... come back soon... we miss ya... we luv ya....." n then comes the red carpet.
There are no pm's talking behind the back of other members?? - LMFAO -
I have read a lot of them about me n Kit Kat last year!!

|Becks, I tend to agree with you. For instance, if I went to a bar and didn't like the atmosphere, music, and clientel there I would simply choose not to go there anymore. I certainly wouldn't bust through the doors once a month and yell, "Everybody Sucks!" turn around and leave and expect everyone to think I was wonderful. As far as clicks/cliques, go; that is a figment of imagination. Apparently there was some background conversation going on to get this little conversation started in the first place. Interesting.|
As forest says: That's all I got to say about that.

|I am confused, I have never seen any PMs going on behind peoples backs or anything. I don't really see the point of coming on here just to have a wee whinge every so often, why not come to talk to those of us that are really here for Priest? |
I agree with what Guido has said - I'm also here because I am isolated from any other true metal heads, and I wanted to talk to like minded people. I have to say, because I have never shit stirred, I was accepted here straight away. No cliques in evidence!

|Sorry you feel that way, MG. I post what I feel and hope others do as well in support of the band and the membership. |
As for "cliques" (yes, she was right in the spelling), I honestly don't see it. Some of us are friends and have even made efforts to meet one another at a Priest concert. THAT is one of the main reasons I frequent this board. I live in nowhere america, feel completely isolated from my metal compadres and just wanted something more than a high-five from a Priest fan at a concert. I have found it here among friends that have proven themselves again and again. No "clique" no silent PMs as to attack so and so. Personally, I just gravitate to people I feel that worship Priest as I do.
I use this site to express that emotion. Not much more than that except to see what other diehards think and feel (and COLLECT!!).

|When I come to the site, I look for news, updated photos, then read the messages since last visit. I make a choice to interact in whichever thread I am in the mood to interact. And I am very thankful that, when the chips are down, the friendships I have developed over the few years I've been interacting here, these same people (yes, they are real people behind these user names - lol) are what keep me returning.|
It comes as no surprise to me that there will be people who want to stir things up for whatever reason. Like 'Freeze and Guido have mentioned, some simply use the annonymity of the internet to elevate themselves in their own minds. [edit: no MG, this comment is not primarily directed at you, it is a general reference. I hadn't noticed you out and about 'til I initially posted.]
Thinking back, Murray had just the right amount of topics, but the fans' wishes ultimately prevailed, there are any number of threads and topics ... and here we are. Guess another good saying to consider this day is, "careful what you wish for" ...
My best to all today : ) Keep well.
(ps ... is anyone else able to use the tool buttons on their message/edit screen, mine though active are invisible - lol)

|Well Well Well I must say it is interesting to stand back and see what goes on ,, on this board... I will say this... Its a hypocritical site Indeed.. Why doesnt murry bann everyone who posts something bad,, now wouldnt that be fair??? Why dont people just ignore those people and not act like children and keep up the tit for tat persona.,. would make life easier.. now wouldnt it,, and also I would like to say,,, some of you have your own little clicks out here and make others feel uncomfortable,, which is why and I know this for a fact after talking to some members who no-long come here like myself.. that you talk about people in Pm's behind thier backs, and you only defend those in your clicks,,, No one defended me,, when My Id was taken,, and all that fucking bs,, so I guess I never was a friend to anyone,, only for convience, ,, Gesh,, whatever,,,,,, |
Habe a good One,, and I dont need A philosphy 2 page 90 paragraph respond either on the intelectual aspect of the board and its members.. either I see what goes on I know who is who and what they have done, and the bullshit that surrounds this site,,
Have a good one MG~

|How very well said...BOTH of you. Each to his own thought, no? |
Lady B, in a "perfect" world, none of this happens. People come here, get along and we all enjoy our time together. As guido so eloquently points out, we are not dealing with "good" people. As we do not have mods here, it is up to us as a membership to stand together against idiocy. That is the way it is on this Board. Murray himself has said as much in that he does not believe he should have to "babysit". He is absolutely right.
What kind of a human being is so miserable that he takes pleasure in hurting others? This is known as a sociopath and we have at least one among us. As I mentioned yesterday, this person hates those around him that have what he never will, strength. His only recourse is to attempt to establish (in HIS mind) a sense of superiority by hurting others. A bully. An insecure, sick and very weak bully. And those that join him share in that same insecurity. It is the tie that binds their ilk. You don't have to train the dogs to fight to bet on them. Equally disgusting.
For whatever reason, a grown adult has taken the pain of a life that clearly did not turn out as he wished and turned that pain against us in an attempt to relieve the embarrassment and anguish that he cannot escape in that life. Here he is somewhat anonymous. Here he is safe from physical attack. Here he is superior in his mind as he can upset others and , thereby, feels that power over them. He can manipulate.
We cannot allow such a person to hurt our friends. As guido said, we will not. We can ignore and we try to do so but there comes a point when confrontation is inescapable, lest we lose this Board forever. I do not intend to see that happen to the satisfaction of one or two very sad and weak persons.

|At the risk of being offensive, I'll answer that one. |
You cite Biblical verse, as is your right, to comment on recent activities here. You claim that they are "fitting." I disagree.
The person in quesion is a stalker who has never once posted a positive thing about the band (or the JP.com population in general, for that matter). They have been banned multiple times and only circumvent that ban and return to satisfy some internal desire to disturb and even abuse the membership.
Would you, like the Boston Diocese, protect an abuser? I have not and will not. Wrong is wrong. It falls on us to conduct ourselves in an appropriate manner either in person or online, no? Again, had said individual EVER posted anything positive about the band or even the membership, I would retract everything I have just said.
Sadly, that did not happen. This person will re-appear and will, unfortunately, not change their ways. While I sincerely hope they do, I have enough years here not to expect it.

Bear with me a while...since am here i saw like u some not so good ppl doing things to others and like u ,i was appalled by what theyre were doing..but i never played their games like some of u right now have done and still doing..
You condemned them but ur doing the same things..I remember from when i was going to church,a passage from Mathew 7, corrected me if am wrong..
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
It just seems fitting today those phrases here on JP...This site is suppose to be of The Priest and all of the Fans and coming to chat with those that luv the Band..To me now,its like an Inquisition ( i saw this earlier on a thread??)...its not anymore about Priest,its about who does what with who or whatever..right now,am sad about this site and maybe they'll be some who wont care what i just post or ignore it..you cant please all the people,its just my opinion..

|A man does not become destitute or miserable by the tyranny of fate or circumstance, but by the pathway of groveling thought and base desires. Nor does a pure-minded man fall into crime and stress of any mere external force; the criminal thought had long been secretly fostered in the heart and the hour of opportunity reveals its gathered power.|

|A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought-evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as a result of thought. As he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss and fume and grieve and worry and remains poised, steadfast and serene.|
