Not saying he didn't invite / deserve a good bit of it, but some of it was way out of line and I regret that it happened..

But that is life. I think there is a good chance that what little we did do to stop it, once it was out of control, probably actually made it worse.
No one here hates Vlad and we probably all wish he'd come back to visit. We actually banned him from the lounge as a fix, at one point, but I'm pretty sure that was lifted.

He has remained active in the torrents sections of the site and is a valuable contributor. It may just be that he feels that is the best role for him these days.

Seriously? You're comparing someone possibly offending you or hurting your feelings on a message board, to the murder of 6 people and wounding of over a dozen more?

SERIOUSLY?!

That kind of extremist thought is the last place we need to look for ideas on how to improve the Lounge.

Okay, that's established -- you are similar to Hitler in some ways. Me, too. Also similar to squirrels and zebras 'cept most of them, that I know of, don't talk too much.

My opinion is not extremist. When I used Loughner's name I used it because he is one sick puppy and SIMILARLY people who think it's fine to attack others also have some screw loose. Attacking people whether it be with a gun or verbally (by typing) is not right, it's not fine at all and those who partake and feel like it is fine, they have some level of derangement goin' on. Not all deranged people shoot others but they sure as hell more often exist to put people down in internet forums. They don't allow opinion that differs from theirs; they shoot it down with nothing less than ferocious, vile hatred. They think anyone who thinks differently should be banished from existing amongst the rest of the human race. Why's that okay? It's not and it is precisely one very serious reason why people decide not to take part in particular forums.

I'd have to agree with this. No, I'm not a Den veteran like some of you -I've been here two and a half years or so- but in my time here I've been through the 'archives' as it were and from time to time there are actually some interesting discussions that take place in the Lounge, just as there are in the other sections of the forum. But, yeah, lately IMO the Lounge has become a bit of a cesspool (to the point where my wife has started calling this site "The Retard's Den"), seeing all the garbage posts, the incessant trolling and all the blatantly obvious 'alias' accounts.

I joined the Den 'cos of your mandate of quality music postings and whatnot...how many times have some of you seen me post something along the lines of, "Is this a music trading site or a fucking daycare?". Truth be told, I'd hate like hell to see the site's overall reputation being dragged down because of all the bullshit that goes down in the Lounge.

I'd say it needs to be moderated a bit better...this 'hands off' approach and letting the aliases run rampant ain't working. Actually moderate the damned thing, and set it up so you get one user per IP or however it's done and that would probably eliminate a lot of the problems. And outright ban the known troublemakers and shit disturbers- you know who they are.

And, again, knowing some of the history some of you have here, considering this is JamesKG's question, I have to ask, KG: this poll/issue wouldn't happen to have anything to do with your on/off battles with Freezer over the years, would it? I'm only asking- not trying to stir up any shit or anything. But, with all respect, knowing the history, I trust there is no hidden agenda here...
