    With the whole thing that happened recently I have had multiple people message me about how you and your group are ruining this forum. Just to let tou know I havent flagged you or anyone but theres a decent amount of people on this forum afraid to speak up but really want you guys to chill out.
    @Lit...you let the cat "out of the bag".  Now the "chosen few" that run this forum know that a bunch of us are talking about them in private messages. This forum is doomed if BGE lets it go on.  I reported Carey's abuse (and his troll accounts) 3 months ago, and BGE Corporate @the_Buffalo has contacted me twice about it, requesting all the links to his postings for review.   Let's see if they do anything about removing his accounts, as there are laws regarding "forum abuse" that they are required to comply with as a corporation.
    Would any of the other members of this secret Forum Area Resistance Tribe like to come forward?  

    The fact that it’s Little Rascal here PMing Lit to tell him about all these people ruining the forum is just gold.

    Good place to post grievances. I’ve got none. In the short time I’ve been on here, I’ve learned tons about cooking in my XL BGE. I’ve helped others and others have helped me tremendously. I may not get along with all you guys, we may not see eye to eye but we’ll manage just fine.

    Not even one page in and ya'll are already proving my point. While not a card carrying FART (typical dismissive tone to offset reasonable discourse btw) I can see where this is coming from. I have been here long enough to know the forum dynamic and usual players and generally don't GAS I can see where it could be off-putting to newcomers though.

    John I feel like you changing your forum pic to this:



    is typical of your usual dismissive tone towards the proles.  Are you a member of academia, by any chance?

    A good meal cooked on a BGE and Beer is supposed to stop arguments and irritation full stop. 

    I'm going to say, anyone stirring the pot here is either (1) just not drinking enough beer, or (2) just spoiled a good meal on their egg.  On second point, if (1) is in excess, and tends to make you forget about the meal ... it could be that you need to actually cut back on (1) to enable point (2) from being satisfied.

    Were there a lot of serious grievances being raised in the "Airing of Grievances" thread you started yesterday?  I wasn't participating in that so I really don't remember.   But it's still around it seems so perhaps people here can use that one if this one is not sufficiently serious.   

    I will say that I was really looking forward to a genuine and heart-felt discourse regarding the applicability of UK harassment law to bbq forums in the US.  It would be a shame if we don't get to that at some point.

    My thread was a burner to deflect from the conversation that was forming in the WAYDRN thread and I stated that. This thread was premised on actually hearing concerns from forum members (lol). Anyone who would be foolish to take up serious concerns here can already see how they will be dogpiled by the group. All I'm saying is whether or not you see it, this place is very Cliquy and could be intimidating to new members who want to engage socially and don't share your worldview. As far as strictly cooking help and feedback this is the best place on the net with a great bunch of helpful people .. even you (gasp), but venture out into the Frat House and you better have some very thick skin. (yeah I know I said I was out of this thread, please make sure you bring that up in your reply)
