    Spammers

    Sorry it took so long to take care of them. I have been out of commission for awhile (feeling a little better today, thank you). There was a total of ten spammers, three of them had their registrations flagged for review. The other seven posted a total of 237 times. All of them have been banned, their posts deleted and their Email, IP's etc forwarded to Spam DB's.

    Touch Heads

    I hadn't heard it 'til about four days ago 😕

    Official Touch Of Grey video

    Recorded 5/9/87 Laguna Seca Raceway, Monterey, CA As I said elsewhere: that evening after the show I was laying down in the back of my '64 Falcon Station Wagon watching the pretty colors dance around the roof liner. I kept hearing music, couldn't quite make out what it was, but it was the same thing over and over. The next day I learned that they had opened the gates and let a bunch of people in while they recorded the "Touch Of Grey" video because they need an audience for it.

    Touch Heads

    While we are laying blame the problems started well before the release of "Touch". A lot of good ole Deadheads were fucking up with regularity. It wasn't "touch heads" that ended shows at Kaiser in Oakland and The Greek Theater in Berkeley. It was the onslaught of buses parked in the neighborhood around Kaiser for up to a week before shows. The "Tour Rats" camping in parks. It was the people running amok thru the neighborhood around The Greek. There were many complaints of people pissing and even crapping in residents yards and even screwing. Incidents like this happened other places I mention them because I lived about a half mile from the Kaiser at the time. Kaiser was the best venue for seeing the Dead It is true that there was a significant change in the atmosphere in and around shows after the popularity of the song, but, I don't think the problem was the people that liked the song. The people that came to shows because it was the cool thing to do, the ones that didn't care about the music or the people or anything else. The ones selling crack and heroin in the parking lots. I don't think we should blame the people that like the song, we should be blaming the damn song. TRIVIA: The video for "Touch Of Grey" was recorded at Laguna Seca Raceway, 5/9/87. That evening after the show I was laying down in the back of my '64 Falcon Station Wagon watching the pretty colors dance around the roof liner. I kept hearing music, couldn't quite make out what it was, but it was the same thing over and over. The next day I learned that they had opened the gates and let a bunch of people in while they recorded the "Touch Of Grey" video because they need an audience for it. The Bay Are Music Awards (the Bammies) the award for the Best New Artists for 1987 went to .... drum-roll.... The Grateful Dead

    A Beautiful day in the neighborhood

    Denver gets outrageous winds! I was stationed in Denver when I was in the Navy (I was attached to the Marine Barracks at Lowry AFB and going to school at Fitzsimmons Army Hosp '81 & '83).
  13. Ron, glad you put the hammer down on this thread.

    My guess is that there is probably one troll impersonating multiple individuals, stirring up stuff.....though I could be wrong.

    It just seems fishy that there are so many brand new posters in the past few days.

     

    Cheers,  Reid

      That has certainly happened, though all of them are from different IP's this time.  I think someone posts in some other forum "hey lets go fuck with dsoforums"  and a group of them come over some post others just lurk, then go back and talk shit about us/me.  I've only been on philzone a couple of times they had some really nasty shit to say about me!  A bunch of little pussies that don't have enough balls to do anything in real life.  Fuck em!

    I saw it coming!

    Poor_Sue, as I have said everyone is welcome to there opinion. Under different, normal circumstances things would be quite different. I am now in a defensive mode, I have to consider what the actual intent of the post is. We have been through this too many times not to know what is going on. Suddenly registrations will increase then posts start usually as a reply to someones thread it may praise or criticism of someone or something then another new member will reply to that their only objective is to stir up trouble. I have seen in the past where a person would submit a post logout and login using a friends account and reply to his own post - I know I can see there IP and where they login from. Until now I had not heard the term "Touch Heads" nor complaints about Phish Phans and don't know that any accusations against anybody were actually started by established members of the forums. I haven't blocked anyone from posting with the exception of the person who registered as "JeffMattsonCatering" who in this thread where I stated my intentions posted a reply saying, basically, what a bunch of idiots we all are and calling band members names. What do you think I would do, rollover and say I was just kidding. I say what I mean and mean what I say. Actually I have blocked one person, Wharf Rat. I have placed restrictions on several people who had made questionable posts, but I have not blocked them, I just want to see what they are posting before they stir up shit. As long as they are not hateful they will be posted if they can't act like civilized adults they will go away! I just have no intention of these forums becoming hateful like others that have been shut down because of the muck posted by a few troublemakers. I'm afraid I don't much enjoy the snow, don't have chains for my wheelchair.

    I warned him AMF The troll has been banished to the land of spammers and may now find it more difficult to register here or elsewhere.
