    I saw this thread and thought OP has a thin skin. I then went back to his original thread and was embarrassed.  I'm on another forum quite a lot and they have a wonderful feature called ignore user. 
  • several facebook groups are good, they are actually moderated.  the amount of kamado/bge content being shared there is immense.

    I find people complaining and being upset online to be weak. I certainly can’t imagine how they operate in real life. 


    When people struggle to read the room, meaning they can’t  negotiate the junk and the good, then it’s always gonna be bad. 


    Not all the sites are the same so test drive them as it suits ya. This one is like a locker room, some folks swing their units, others stare, a few shower in shorts. 


    Branch out- plenty of places as active or more active to find cook inspirations. Cooking on ceramic isn’t rocket science, and it certainly isn’t new.

    I disagree (not under the Disagreediots rock though), want proof?  ;)

  • The first few months I was on here I took everyone literally and found myself A) looking like an idiot arguing, when really it was all in good fun and B ) not enjoying it for what it is. A wealth of knowledge and sometimes foolishness.

    Guy buys a KJ.  A year later, joins the BGE forum but never posts anything.  A year after that makes a first post with a thread that is one of the two most controversial topics: BGE or KJ.  (the second is what lump is best).  That thread starts out with "I am not a troll."

    As is predicted with most any controversial topic you will get some people arguing about it.  A pun about the acronym for Big Joe is made.  This is some seriously naughty behavior.  Queue Lit, who's probably been day drinking.  Pantomime a third grade fight that goes: "I know you are but what am I" (you get the picture).  Not anything "insane asylum" level by any means.

    Some hours later, this person starts up another thread, having posted 4 or 5 times total in one day.  "I'm a noob and this place is nasty unlike the other forums", yadda yadda.  The torture this guy tolerated for a few hours is so unbearable that bait is set for "what to do?!".  Cue the Hitler youth and Archie Bunker twins who paint a grim picture about how everyone has left because of "like 5 bad people and their many troll accounts". 

    FFS, just go. Who does this?  This is just moderator bait all the way.
    You drinking again buddy?

    “Library” just proves you don’t even understand the concept.

    I just made my first post on this forum and a few of the comments that have been made lead me to believe this isn’t a family website.  Well, not a family I want to be a part of.  At least I was helped in making my decision. 

    Is there a BGE forum that is moderated for bad behaviors?  I’m not a prude but I can’t believe some of the comments made.  

    I realize someone will say it’s a free country and I can go if I don’t like it.  

    Do I have the ability to block certain people.  It’s always just a few that mess things up
    The truth is that there's only really one bad apple.  But at times that can be enough to upset the cart.

    This guy has always been kind of a ****, but we tolerated him.  For example, he used to regularly make fun of one of the forum member's medical ailments.  It was relentless and cruel.  

    Then he said some pretty racist stuff.  He got called on it, and got into a fight over it with one of the more popular members here.  The other member left the forum over it, while the racist dude asked the moderator to delete his account.  But because he's such a jackass and the mods aren't really on the ball, he stuck around.  Since then he just picks fights probably once a week.  At one point he shared PMs some other forum member had sent him, just because they were embarrassing to that member.

    His MO is to make fun of forum members and their appearance.  I've seen him make fun of people for having long hair, teeth that aren't white enough, ugly wives or kids, you name it.  That's him.  He throws insults like a 13-year old.  

    But if you can ignore that one guy, and he's really pretty obvious so it's not hard, this is a really great place.  
    Yep.

    Apparently, this type of posting is normal here.  LOL
    I had no idea such people existed outside of treatment centers or confinement.
    Ahh, I see where you went wrong.  They have interwebz in treatment centers now.  Occasionally folks sneak on without supervision.  Then we wind up with days like today.

    This has really been interesting. I never imagined a forum like this. 

    Contrary to some of your beliefs, my butt hasn’t been and doesn’t hurt.  I do feel a certain degree of pain for some of you.  It must be a terrible feeling when you are lost and start to think about the future.  Then you reach for things to numb your mind or try to hurt others to transfer your pain (under the disguise of humor and sarcasm)

      I understand as once was I.

    Your best bet is to search for a topic you are curious on.  The older posts are much more genuine and provide actual advice that can help.  It seems more recently that posts are filled with people arguing back and forth.
