No, no, no!

Never follow rules! Rules should always be challenged and questioned!

Find your own way, but be respectful along the way!


cool

This was a tv taping, not someone living in a police state ala 1984. Geezus, get some persepctive.

This is an issue about respect.

People just don't respect people anymore!



Tell that to the mod who felt the need to annoy people with his stupidity of taking pictures at a place that clearly had a "no recording" policy...

And respect is something that's only paid to people who deserve it... You behave like a cunt and you deserve to be treated like a cunt...

I don't get this at all...I'm surprised one would even think to take photos at anything related to Prince.

Sounds really whiny.

Why the stickey??

Obviously, but I think your missing his point, he explained it ones as some deserved "cascading decline of humanity and society" (his words lol ) he discussed this in the politics and discussion forums years ago. I quite understand it just don;t agree. with it.

Can I just say that I love trolling Bart and his caustic temperament as much as anyone, but his “anchore” response was one of the few times I’ve actually laughed out loud over something I read on the internet... Well done, sir!

Can't remember it's name, it's either called an Ankh Or .....

This is an issue about respect.

People just don't respect people anymore! There is a way to treat people and a way not to! The security person could have very politely said, ''please pop your camera away'' and I'm sure June7 or anyone else would have happily done so!

As I say, the problem is bigger than this!

People hate people, people hate animals, people don't care! The news is full of people killing people and people destroying the environment.

This week in Australia we saw a farmer MURDER 100+ Koala when the world is trying to help Australia with their insurmountable ecological disaster!

This problem is getting worse and worse!

The human race is sinking into a cesspit of it's own making.

However, there is a glimmer of hope. Some people are great and together we can achieve great things! Again, look at the kindness, love and respect shown around the world for the animals of Australia!

So how about we all start to show each other a little respect. Be nice. Be polite. Be courteous.

A small start can lead to great things!

cool



How about the dude with the camera being respectful and not getting his phone camera out in the first place.

The mobile phone really is the bane of concert going these days ... row upon row of people in front of you waving their phones about to get pointless photos every five minutes. Ugh ...

And the original poster keeps banging on about "this isn't how Prince would have done it/he would have hated this" ... well guess what else Prince hated; people getting their phones out at shows to take photos!

WHY is this list of personal affronts still here and as a STICKY?
It reflects on the writer, not the event.

Good question, when that mod hasn't even been active for a year prior to this embarrassing thread and is sure enough gone back from whence he came.

My fault I stand corrected. I was referencing the details sent to me when I bought my ticket which I see now that this would be aired at a later date. However there is no mention of not taking pics or videos. And the signs at the venue were small.




Seriously, though. If this is being recorded for broadcast at a later date, there is no way taking photos or videos would be allowed. That is just common sense.




What I find truly ironic here is that the author's holier than thou attitude to what prince would or wouldn't like in his report seems to conveniently stop when it comes to taking pics and video. This is something Prince notoriously hated from his so called fans ..I guess honouring him doesn't include this inconvenient aspect of his wishes and preferences....and what about that bizarre non sequitur thread title? as if the problem was poor musicality...yet the author stayed for just one song....I can see that being pulled out of the gig feels really shitty but other than that I think the fam doth protest too much...

So cool this is still a sticky.

[First of all, yeah, I’ll go ahead and say it, being a mod here for over twenty years and running the FB page more recently, does afford one some privileges here, and for that I do not apologize. I truly don’t have a problem with how I presented this, but thank you guys, all of you, for your very educated opinions.

Venting about something involving Prince, that I felt was unjust, is something I felt should have had attention brought to it. No one can speak for me and say how I must have felt when the guard took me to the lobby, only I know how I felt at that time, and it was all those things I listed.

I am well aware that this is a Prince tribute show, and that it was being filmed for television, but IT’S NOT A FUCKING PRINCE CONCERT. Geezus, so, Prince didn’t like cameras out when he performed. We know this. I know this. But, I didn’t feel that it merited removal from my seat and back to the lobby. Another orger said they just had them delete it right there at the seat. Had they done that for me, I probably wouldn’t have left. But the long ass walk to the lobby, to then be handed off to another usher was just ridiculous, and uncalled for.

As I mentioned, due to circumstances beyond my control I arrived 10-15 minutes late. I missed the instructions, and apparently I missed when the gazillion ushers and security were telling people that. And, as stated, the signs were extremely small. Even the guard had trouble pointing them out to me.

Another thing - I heard three songs. The last one, twice, due to the stop and start. Also, I’m aware of what a taping is - I live in LA. Being filmed for a television production is way different than “this concert will be recorded for later broadcasting”, and I’ve never been to a show where they stopped and restarted a song, for airing sake.

There seems to be a lot of animosity over the fact that, because I’m a moderator I shouldn’t be allowed to do this or that, or bitch about something that pissed me off. Well, too fucking bad. I’ve been on this site, volunteering for over 20 years, and the FB page for over 14 years (I think), and I’ve not let your sarcastic, rude, bad mannered and condescending comments affect me or how I moderate here. And quite frankly, most of the responses were just really mean spirited and unkind. Yeah, looking back, I may have overreacted to my ordeal, and for that, I will apologize. But, it’s how I reacted, how I felt and how I responded to it, and I’m not going to begin taking anything posted on here as anything but more of the same in what goes on here.

And, yes, I wrote it, stickied it and left it that way on here because that’s what I wanted to do. When any of you moderate a site for a couple decades, I’m sure you will be able to do the same, too. And, guess what, I’ll probably do it again.

As for not posting here for long periods of time, is that supposed to be a measure of one’s worth here? You have no idea what we do behind the scenes here. We have a moderator portal group where we discuss the actions of members and I’m in there all the time guiding and assisting my fellow moderators in actions or inactions taken, plus moderating the FB page and posting p-related material to keep it interesting, plus attending school for my bachelors, plus working part time, plus working on my own music and other performing or written arts. So, I ‘m not going to sweat that out either.

Some of you used really poor choices of words to describe me as a result of this thread, or who knows, my persona on here? - and I left them as is. That’s a reflection on you more than it is of me. So... enjoy that.

And finally, if this were to happen again, or something similar to it, I may think twice before reacting, and maybe consider other factors prior to airing my views of an event that I was fortunate enough to attend. But, maybe by venting in this manner, someone in control may make sure next time that people are treated more respectfully if called out. I may have erred, but there’s nothing wrong with demanding common courtesy - it appears others were afforded that, why wasn’t I?

So, I’ve decided to remove the sticky on this - maybe some of you will be able to sleep better now. Who knew that doing so offended you all so much. And you’re absolutely right. I only did it because I can. And, I’m most likely going to be doing it again sometime in the future.

M

Thank you to those who supported my stance, was truly touched by your words. - June7]
