Waasta left his comfort zone, but he found his security blanket again so all is well

Canayjun, Eh!
Byron is banned???? Why??? Say it ain't so!!!

If he did indeed tell a mod to, well - you know... perhaps that particular mod deserved it... I know there have certainly been times lately when I'd like to have given a certain mod a piece of my mind... but I'd not been attacked personally, so I've refrained.

I know that news really saddens you Earl.

If he has been sending PMs to members telling them he was banned, I say it's just another attempt of his to get the attention he so desires.

If he has told a moderator to "f" off, once again his lack of showing respect is shining through.

Well, Wastaa's been permanently banned
I think I’m done as well. The elimination of ideas (even ones I don't agree with) is not what I'm about.

See you on Facebook.
If that's true about Byron, that's too bad. He kept things interesting.

Brian, if you see this, I hope you don't go too. I enjoy your posts and you seem like one of the cooler people on here (and by "cooler" I mean you don't get your nips in a twist over every little thing like others do).

Just forget I posted anything. Good grief. You guys dissect every little thing and make an issue of it.
Amen. I don't post here much anyways (I actually spend most of my time running my DJ company, go figure) but in the past couple months I've almost stopped entirely because when you go through most of the threads it's just nitpicking about the most ridiculous things. There's more drama on here than a whole afternoon of soap operas.

TONE DOWN THE EGOS FELLAS! IT'S JUST A CHAT BOARD!

No matter our differences CIVILITY must remain supreme. It is hard when we are passionate about things but we need to be Civil & kind to everyone as much as possible.

I personally don't think anyone should be jumping to conclusions.

Waasta got banned? I was going to thank him. Because of his rants about being cheap, I raise my rates. Not a lot but booked one the day after I raised them.

Why is BP posting waasta was banned (post #138. In post # 140 hippydiog appears to confirm waasta has been banned

Are those reading the above information jumping to conclusions? How did this rumor begin? Did it begin with waasta himself seeking yet more attention?

Thank you for your reply Jason. Maybe you can tell us why the moderators are cautioning us NOT to jump to conclusions.

Banned is incorrect I now assume.. hiatus pending review is probably the proper term :)

but if waasta was a TV show, we all know what usally happens to TV shows that go on "hiatus"... ;-)

yes, he might make it back.. but could he survive the zero tolerance second chance?

If he has been sending PMs to members telling them he was banned, ..
to be exact he PM'ed me explaining why he thought he was ABOUT TO BE BANNED.. I tried to PM him back but it was already locked down.
I assume he went directly ahead and put his words into action..
I will also further assume that the only way out of that "action" is to sincerly apologize and promise not to do it again..

I seriously don't envy the mods when it comes to stuff like this.. Either direction means making someone angry.

Tom,

A better line is, "DJs are only worth what someone will pay them if they are willing to accept it."

Byron is one of many DJs who have stormed into this forum only to create havoc, then be gone!

I honestly hope that one day those people that at admired and appreciated for their contributions would return. This can still be a great place where "Professional DJs" can share ideas.

Joe,

He is banned for now, but a complete review of the TOS as it applies is being conducted.

Because the actions are being debated privately to make sure that was the correct action to be taken.

Personally I think there is no reason for profanity on a professionals website & I think telling anyone to F off is really, really way over the line be it public or private.

However, IMO there is a case to be made that in an effort to be laid back & not heavy handed we haven't been as clear as perhaps we should be on the conduct that is expected.

There are issues IMO that require further consideration & discussion on application of the TOS.

As someone who has been a moderator, you know the kind of discussions that are taking place behind closed doors.

wouldnt it make more sense for you to join the forum where the people that you admire hang out?

Ryan sells advertising space here.. and those advertisers want as many DJ's seeing those ads as possible..
Thus this forum can never be just for "professional DJs" as you define it..

I guess it does say banned under his name in his posts. Sooooo, maybe he'll be back?

His picture's gone too!!!

I knew something good was gonna come out of all this :)

Well, Wastaa's been permanently banned, so he'll continue to do what he does and you can continue to do what you do independent of one another.

I think I’m done as well. The elimination of ideas (even ones I don't agree with) is not what I'm about.

See you on Facebook.
If anyone does get banned, I highly doubt it is the "elimination of ideas". Everyone is free to think what they want. People have all kinds of ideas on boards like this.

It is NOT what you say, but how you say it. Every board has a TOS that was agreed to when someone posts something.

Anyone is free to start their own board, pay for bandwidth, and allow anyone to post anything about anyone. I would be shocked if that type of board got any real traffic, but anyone is free to do it.

and thats the basic premise..
their are few different types of DJ forums out there.. each one has their own flavour and style..
