It's seems I am vain enough to write this post.

Recently, I referred to our recent anti-vax poster as a "lover of human slaughter". I was informed Thursday that this falls under the categorization of 'We cannot allow users to be abusive, overly aggressive, threatening, or to "troll".' I considered the sentence accurate rather than abusive, not threatening in any way, and an understatement, if anything. However, I don't make the rules, and I don't protest the reprimand in any way.

One thing I do value is the implied contract I make every time I post a comment in here. So, I took a couple of days to let any emotions subside, and make sure of what I felt to be the right thing. I consider every post to be a promise I will behave according to the rules. If the comment above is against the rules, I have decided that I can no longer make that promise to the administrators/moderators, because we have a divide between we as being aggressive, threatening, or trolling with regard to anti-vaxxers. If I can't promise to fulfill my part of the bargain, I have no right to enter into it.

So, good-bye all. I have learned so much here over the years, and have nothing but gratitude for Jason, colton, and various members of the moderation team over the years. Were I to list individual posters that I have learned from, I could probably type out 100 handles and still leave people out. Thank you all very much.

That’s a shame. A real loss for this board. I hope you reconsider this decision soon. You’re a fantastic poster and have enjoyed reading your posts and insight.

Sorry to see you leave. But if it gets to the point where something is actually troubling you on this site (or any site for that matter) you should probably go - or at least take a breather for a while.

Passions are running hot right now and taking a step back isn’t a bad thing. I know people who stopped watching news and switched to a dumb phone for a month as a mental detox. Trips to Hawaii used to be that way with spotty cell phone coverage and no internet.

If this is a permanent change then I wish you well and know that I enjoyed the banter. If you are taking a step back to breathe and sometime down the road decide to venture this way again I’ll be happy to see your avatar pop up in a thread.

Part of this is aging and adulthood responsibilities I’m sure. I know it’s that way for me. It would be nice to get a younger group of Jazz fanz in here. In the 18-25 year old range. Guys (and gals) who can help the board evolve and become regulars much in the way we were.

Part of this should be remembering this is a Jazz board and GD is just a small part of it.

My guess is people came here because they’re Jazz fans and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

You would think......... but then there are a number of posters who ONLY post in GD. Makes it seem like maybe they didn't come here because they are jazz fans.

It’s become a mystery to me why certain posters are allowed to stay and not really contribute much of anything while chasing away long time greats. Gameface and One Brow are just the most recent. Most of the “old timers” rarely post anymore. I certainly don’t post much, but browse on an increasingly less frequent occasion.
