This is a totally unnecessary comment. You've just shit on a bunch of people who you don't even know. Chanhassen isn't in the middle of nowhere, especially not if you already live in or near Minneapolis.

This is a formal warning and I'm putting a strike on your account. Calm your tone. Your constructive comments, as always, are welcome. Unwarranted negativity on the other hand is not.

Wow. In all of my years participating and being part of this forum, I have never viewed such absolutely atrocious moderation behavior. Sir, it is understood that prince.org is not a democracy and that free speech rules do not apply, nor should they. That being a given, and allowing for the rules of conduct described for this websites users, this was an extremely ugly and ham-fisted way to moderate a post. Please see fit to resign as moderator in as timely a manner as possible. Thank you.



Squirrel! Holy moley is it awesome to see you again! Man, I hope all is well and that this is the beginning of your re-entry to the Org. And Facebook, too! Seriously, it is AWESOME to see you!

But now the bad news - Militant's actions are the result MY reporting Bart's post. In fact, I asked the mods why in the heck Bart hasn't been banned from the site by now.

Bart is a bully. Free speech is one thing; bullying is another. I don't think any advocate of free speech would say, "Yeah - use it to bully others". That, sadly, is just what Bart does and has been doing for a long time. I know you've been absent for a few years so you probably haven't seen his recent behavior but trust me - Militant showed great restraint in only giving Bart a strike and not banning him.

Bart has a personal grudge against Prince - this is no secret. Bart plays out that grudge here on the Org, and extends that grudge to people who support Prince. And not people who blindly support everything Prince does. No, if you support ANYTHING Prince does, you're a target of Bart's invective.

Frankly, I've had enough of it. Bart needs to go. I'm all for constructive criticism but personal vendettas have no place here - especially when innocent bystanders are slungwith mud in the carrying out of that vendetta.

So that's the gist of this current Bart situation. It's all on me, for better or worse. I hope you understand. And I am sincerely overjoyed to see you again! Take care, and keep in touch!

it was totally inappropriate what Bart said! To call prince's fans sycophants & nuts! For wanting to travel to PP to hear new muziq! His negativity needs to STOP! That was an insult to prince also. Militant is just doing his job as a Moderator, to tone down this unnecessary daily negativity on this site. Bart is the ringmaster of it for YEARS! He constantly calls peeps names. He also have said worse things than that statement on here. Its surprising he is still aloud to continue his mission to attack anyone in his path on here. This was Militant's way of warning him it won't TOLERATED anymore.

prince believes in LOVE4ONEANOTHER. Let's join together & bring peaceful vibes here.

prince has rolled out the red carpet for a very positive fan of his Jesse. Eye have seen no mention of this on here whatsoever. prince has NEVER done this 4 any of his fans. Instead U drive him away with your negativity.

prince is the only one left. Mj's gone, JB is gone, Luther, Rick James, Marvin.

Honor prince ! Stop criticizing him all the time.

Fairweather eh? Just because I didn't pay a couple of thousand for flights, hotels etc? Yeah, right, way to offend almost everyone.

And how is this in his defense? He launched the tatty web site...

[Edited 7/17/14 0:58am]

Eye happen to like both configurations of "LotusFlow3r.com".Eye admit Eye wish the first configuration would have worked out. But neither was tatty! U the ones just mad because he didn't want to put his vault "MasterPieces" on it.

I wasn't mad.

Eye got to purchase Xclusive first pick tickets, to a GRAND 3 night Lotusflow3r launching per4mance, from that innovative site.

prince has more than made up 4 its early demise since then, by christening all of U, with his live Xclusive 3RDEYEGIRL web series! Plus handing U an albums worth of trax in the process.

What?

Still U are never satisfied! Still moan & complain about everything, from his fro, to his beautiful woman around him, even complain about prince personally inviting U to his plush Paisley Park estate to listen to his carefully crafted new MEGA trax.. disbelief

Please explain where I complain about everything? Where have I even once complained about his hair, or women? I've liked most of his new music, (mastering aside), so I'm completely baffled as to how you're throwing these accusations at me.

KC to be perfectly honest whilst I admire your unstinting [blind] loyalty Barts description fits you & others perfectly well. That's just my opinion & I find it simply beyond belief that you are incapable of any sort of valid criticism...BUT you have every damn right to express yourself on here. So by sharing that opinion am I to be banned? If you went to PPark we would get a gushing report, If Bart went we would get bile If I went you would at least get a balanced opinion..and so would the band & so would Prince without hesitation. Yes Bart is the polar opposite of you & needs to be a bit more positive BUT all opinions count. Militant seems like a real cool cat BTW BUT i think he felt very defensive & went on the attcak without thinking it through. Of course in the great scheme of things all this means fuck all considering world events right now...tis just my opinion.

They are taking people in groups of 15 to hear the album. Some people are vying for position near the stage in hopes he plays and some are trying to hear the new album. They didnt play the album over the P.A. or anything like that.

"Security Ensuring Thee"

Thank U for making this distinction because a couple of posts stated as a matter of fact that those near the stage were hoping for Prince to play. I was near the stage not because I expected Prince to play that night, but I expected to hear the album, or parts of it. I find the sound to be better in the center, than in some other areas. I also like the crowd that wants to be upfront because they seem to be happier and more positive about Prince in general.

Whenever I've went to Paisley Park, it was always with excitement and anticipation. I still feel that way when I go but I am seasoned enuf to know that anything goes. So I purposely go not expecting anything except to be able to be there, and maybe make it inside PP.

When the first group was told to go to the other room, I could have followed. But I didn't hear an open invitation or anything announced for everyone to go and wait in line. I was confused because the lobby was full of people buying T-shirts and Tour Books. I was dancing with a friend waiting while enjoying the evening. By the time we realized what was going on, it was too late. smile Everyone is different but personally, I always feel it is a great privilege to be in Prince's house no matter what comes down. I left glad to have been there, wishing I was smarter biggrin

Yeah, who would expect that a bunch of sycophants who were nuts enough to travel to somewhere in the middle of nowhere would proclaim this the best thing ever?

think you are being harsh there Militant. Bart makes a very valid point [in his own unique way!] He right a there is no impartiality at all - which is fair enough as TBH I'd be like a bloody 'fam' if invited to P.Park to listen with the band & P on a phone! From the various reviews I have got fuck all of an idea of what these songs are like.


Seriously think as a Mod you shouldhave done it via an org note & not in public. The org is proving to be way behind when compared to twitter etc & is now even putting very relevant threads in the wrong place ! this one was in concerts FFS! Lets try & improve it & NOT turn into some rose tinted air head space that the NPG Music Club forums were! wink



Suggesting the people there might not be impartial is fine.

Calling them "a bunch of sycophants" who are "nuts" for travelling to PP is not.

Jesse is a friend of mine who was driven away from this site by this sort of behaviour. It ends now.

I posted in public as a reminder just so everybody is aware that it is unacceptable behaviour. Bart's not the only person people have been complaining about.


Well if one of your friends were "driven" from the site you are hardly in a position to be objective are you man?

I may not agree with Barts manner, but that comment was fair, the entire Lotusflow3r bullshit made it very clear that it was a controlled group of people who were never gonna say a bad word about what they saw. It was orchestrated and in my opinion too they were picked because they were Prince sycophants?

You can ban me as well, but that's what everybody at the time believed happened.

I think the comment was fair too. Prince is using those fans. And I feel a little bit sorry for them, like that kid Jester who seems to be turning into a loon (and even moved to MPLS!) Then again, they win because they get to go to PPark and Prince wins because afterwards they just get online and talk about how wonderful his new music is. No such thing as bad press. I just miss the days when his music would do the talking for him. I guess I'm just a spoiled Prince fan.

I love this post, funkyhead. I've long been a defender of Bart, and while sure he tends to be pretty negative regarding Prince, I agree with him a thousand times more often than I agree with KCool. And while Bart's posts also frequently provide meaningful information, I get absolutely nothing out of KCool's bizarrely written rants. Other people might feel exactly the opposite. If KCool is allowed to tell everybody off for having the slightest critical thought about Prince (going so far in this thread as to defend the LotusFailure website!) then as far as I see it, Bart is allowed to point out that people who travel at the last minute (even locally) to hang out at Paisley and hear clips from a new 3rdEyeGirl album are going to be blindingly positive by default. And I say that knowing that if I lived closer, I would have gone and most likely fallen under the purple spell as well ... it's happened to me before!

As far as I'm concerned, internet message boards are expected to get a little heated from time to time. As long as nobody is making threats to anyone else or using blatantly racist or homophobic rhetoric, then what's the harm? Let KCool keep rolling his eyes and posting like a giddy kindergartener, and let Bart keep spitting his vitriol and providing interesting information. And let those of us who are somewhere in the middle decide whose posts we will pay attention to.

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

YOU are the one who is bullying. YOU keep making shit up about me, YOU keep attacking me, YOU are reporting me for imaginary slights.

But why would you bring Jesse and Lotusflow3r into this Militant?
I found that quite odd and I know that's what quite a few of us are appalled by to be honest. This was another simple Org squabble.

There was nothing really wrong or inaccurate in the post you chastised Bart for?
The key people who have been reporting on these P events are most definitely Prince sycophants, I mean I don't know how anyone could say otherwise.

A sycophant being someone who will react in a positive manner in order to get approval of a peer, in this case Prince. I mean what die hard Prince fan wouldn't?

And with regards to P.Park being in the middle of nowhere, for most of us it is?
He built it to be isolated, it's hardly on Sunset or in the middle of a major city.

So that's 2 out of 3 on Barts post. The only thing which was questionable was him saying people would be nuts to do it. That's a subjective comment and hardly deserving of reprimanding.

??

If you want to reprimand Bart over outside behavior or over something else, then that's between the two of you. I don't know what history you two have, but you need to be objective and impartial, the Jesse is a friend of yours comment was neither. There was nothing wrong with that post. God your response was do inappropriate you even got SquirrelGrease out of retirement.

Peace.

I'm not a bully, never have been. Do I dismiss people's opinions? Sure, because most of the time they're incoherent and/or inconsistent, and often ignorant of the facts. But apparently, in this day and age, that's bullying.

YOU are the one who is bullying. YOU keep making shit up about me, YOU keep attacking me, YOU are reporting me for imaginary slights. And all that because you don't wanna debate anything -- which is the crux of your attitude towards all this P -- but get upset when you read informed opinions that hurt your feelings.

But why would you bring Jesse and Lotusflow3r into this Militant? I found that quite odd and I know that's what quite a few of us are appalled by to be honest. This was another simple Org squabble. There was nothing really wrong or inaccurate in the post you chastised Bart for? The key people who have been reporting on these P events are most definitely Prince sycophants, I mean I don't know how anyone could say otherwise. A sycophant being someone who will react in a positive manner in order to get approval of a peer, in this case Prince. I mean what die hard Prince fan wouldn't? And with regards to P.Park being in the middle of nowhere, for most of us it is? He built it to be isolated, it's hardly on Sunset or in the middle of a major city. So that's 2 out of 3 on Barts post. The only thing which was questionable was him saying people would be nuts to do it. That's a subjective comment and hardly deserving of reprimanding. ?? If you want to reprimand Bart over outside behavior or over something else, then that's between the two of you. I don't know what history you two have, but you need to be objective and impartial, the Jesse is a friend of yours comment was neither. There was nothing wrong with that post. God your response was do inappropriate you even got SquirrelGrease out of retirement. Peace. smile [Edited 7/21/14 3:56am]

I didn't say anything about Lotusflow3r.... go back and read through again. I mentioned Jesse as an example of ONE person (there are others on this site) who was in particular hesistant to keep posting here because the bullying type of posts. Bart's reprimand was not just for this ONE post. As Rodeo says, it's been a pattern of behaviour of constant negativity (which not many like, but we tolerate), with occasional posts that simply cross the line and do not get addressed. So I addressed it. Simple.



And you need to not follow Bart's lead and call the people at the listening party sycophants. Do you know them? There was at least 40 to 50 people at that listening party. These people are all sycophants? They are all nuts? Don't be ridiculous. If you ACTUALLY read the reports of the people that were there, not all of them are OTT positive. At least a couple that I saw were quite objective. And that's what? 4 or 5 reports? So 10% of the people there, if even that? And these people are all sycophants? Fuck that noise.



A good chunk of people on this very site have visited Paisley. So they're all nuts too?



I don't have history with Bart, I don't know the dude, but I received MULTIPLE orgnotes regarding his behaviour in this thread. It wasn't just Rodeo. I addressed it. Simple.

This place, as it is right now, is causing good members to leave. I could name half a dozen in the last 12 months. The reason is the same. Negative bullshit and certain orgers with negative agendas (not just Bart) shitting all over those people for daring to say something positive about the artist this very site is about.


I won't stand for it. Decent, informative posters with good opinions shouldn't be shitted on by the negative nancy parade.



This is the final word on the matter. And if this thread isn't about to get back on topic, it's on the next train to Locksville.

Just temp unlocking this to show you just ONE of the messages I received after locking this thread.




If some of you want to continue to think I'm wrong for addressing a very obvious issue that we have here, then that's fine, but I will continue to address it where I see it.
