RodeoSchro Appreciation

Hello!

.

I seldom post here, but I come to the ORG almost daily. I was moved, even bummed, to see that Rodeo was leaving.

.

It is easy to take for granted, those little positive things in your day to day life. It's like I went to read my horoscope this morning, and the paper wasn't doing that anymore.

.

Since Prince passed away, I haven't been able to break the habit of checking out this site regularly. Rodeo made it entertaining & rewarding, and was a handful of reasons (or people) I check in. We don't agree on weed, or god, or grunge. Rodeo could be manic in his movie reviews; pedantic in his political diatribes. He could be quite intractible, suffering no fools. Ultimately, what he did here was positivist, and towards a greater good.

.

I wanted to aknowledge that.

.

I still hope this is just a needed break. It's good to take a break from your routine; shake things up. It becomes a worry when something becomes compulsory, particularly when it has a negative effect in your life.

.

After all, I hear Rodeo likes a Pearl Jam song. Anything is possible -

.

.

Thank you for your thoughts MarkThrust. Rodeo was a quintessential part of multiple org forums. A musician who loves Prince, god, his family and people in general. Fun to read, rants and all. Straight shooter who left the hierarchy due to unfairness, something he just can't stand. Admire him for that.

Rodeo is very missed around here. Sad to see him leave.

It seems like the org is dying a slow death, there seems to be a different set of rules for different posters.

Rodeo is a true gentleman.

Since you brought it up ...

The mod bashing here is really getting annoying. They do a damn good job, and need I remind you they are unpaid volunteers. They are not paid babysitters.

So tell us, how is there a different set of rules? Give us an example please, since you chose to bring it up.

Because there isn't a longtime poster on this site that hasn't been snipped, it happens to ALL of us. The mods make judgement calls based on their interpretation of the rules, they don't cater to those who think they are above the rules based on longevity, posting history, popularity or whatnot.

It's unfortunate you and one other person had to "go there". I know Rodeo spent a lot of time here, posting a lot. But the fact he chose to not only leave, but also delete his account so he can't be Orgnoted, indicates his true reasons for leaving. Think about it.

Right on. He wasn't banned, he closed his account by his own accord.

As you say, we've all been snipped (and probably will be again). This isn't on the mods, they do a great and thankless job and put up with our bullshit day in and day out.

And besides, as the mod who posted in this thread said: "He'll be back".

Everybody needs a break sometimes, I know I have. Rodeo will come back before we know it. Count on it.

BRRRR ... that's cold! lol

Yes, he decided to delete his account, I think it was more than a week ago.

But most of us believe he'll be back.

Lol, it wasn't intended to come across that way. I just didn't know he was gone. What happened?

Those that say he will be back are the reason why he left. Funny they would post on an appreciation thread.

So you're still bashing Luv4U ... ridiculous.

Would you rather just not have any mods at all here? Is that your ulterior motive?

And what does your bashing have to do with appreciation for Rodeo? Yeah, that's right ... nada.

Some of us know how to find him, he made sure of that before he left.

I said he'll be back and I had nothing to do with his decision to leave, didn't even know about it till a day later. So, watch it with the blame game.

Still no words of appreciation for a 17 year orger.

Ditto. Why the hell don't people understand the concept of "accountability"??

He decided to leave. That's on him, not the mods or anybody else. It's on him.

He's not dead, he just closed his org account. Over-react much?

Why are you always trying to tell people what threads they can post in, and police what they can and can't say? You complain about the mods' decisions (which you know is against the rules) and then try to act like a mod, telling others what they can and can't do. Act your age, boomer.

This thread is titled Rodeo Appreciation. I did not start it. All eye see is complaining, no appreciation.

As has been pointed out already, you and one other person started with the complaining about the mods and "different set of rules" blah blah blah.

This is not the place for such complaints, there is an "Org Site Discussion" forum for complaints like that.

Furthermore, several of us have shown our appreciation in this thread already. I personally wrote about how he spent a lot of time here, and how he wrote a lot.

This will all look really silly when he returns. lol

I'll decide which comments I wish to reply to and respond any way I wish. Again, you're not a mod, so, being bossy just makes you a bully.

Feel free to have a memorial for a fallen orger as if he died rather than chose to close his account, if it makes you feel better. But don't presume to tell others where and what we can post in a public forum. Stay in your lane.

Org rules - Criticize ideas - not people.

I did not start this thread but I do appreciate Rodeo, and I said why.

Org rules - Moderators have final say

If you don't agree with a decision, you may discuss it with the moderator who made the judgment in private.

Are we picking and choosing which rules to pay attention to now?

I will miss Rodeo very much. He's been a part of this site for a very long time and I respect his views and the way in which he handled himself. Quite frankly, I fear for the future of this site as it's not nearly as much fun as it once was and it's just too filled with bs about Prince's death, politics and other depressing subjects. I come here for one or two reasons and then I'm out.

Which makes this thread oddly fitting.

I'm the same way, I come here for enjoyment and fun. Isn't that the purpose of this site, for Prince fans to enjoy interacting with other Prince fans?

I like to laugh, I like to be funny and read others who are funny. I like to share interesting information.

But some people seem to be here for just one reason, and that's to force their views on everyone who disagrees with them. I know misery loves company, but they need to keep that shit to themselves. lol
