Moderators will not help. This forum is like living next door to total trailer trash.

I agree that a newbie gushing all about Neil Finn, posting videos of his performances, and repeatedly parroting the 'official narrative' for Lindsey's dismissal in the Rumours forum seems deliberately provocative.

Normally, I'd otherwise agree that telling another member to 'shut up' crosses a line. As it stands, I'd just as soon ignore arguments between members and intend to do so moving forward.
If telling other members to "shut up" and using obscene vulgarities in reference to members of the band doesn't get someone banned from a fan forum then there's no point in having moderators.

But it’s not against forum rules to use “obscene vulgarities” about members of the band. As for telling you to shut it, you were calling for someone who has been here for like twenty years to be banned. Maybe learn the rules of this board, first.

Well maybe if certain members of the band didn't behave in an obscene and vulgar way people wouldn't reference them in that way

I think we all need a time out and group hug as a sound system plays the following Fleetwood Mac "classic" from the Time album:

FYI: The Rumours lineup = Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks.

The lineup featuring Mike Campbell & Neil Finn is a Post-Rumours lineup of the band.


After 14 yrs visiting a site I once enjoyed which covered a band I once loved following, I now ‘Say Goodbye’ to both
No thanks to the faction within FM which destroyed its legacy & heavy-handed mod michelej1


This site operates at the whim of the admin&mods–a whim I'll no longer be associated with

In all seriousness, Mick had the best guitar solo on the album.

So using vulgarities against band members doesn't violate forum rules?

Telling members to "shut up" doesn't violates the rules?

I guess I just assumed that obscene behavior like this wouldn't be allowed.

As far as a member being on the forum for 20 years, you would think he would know better and have more respect for the integrity of this website.

Actually I just read through the forum rules and using vulgarities (just as "whore" or "shut up" or other offensive posts that I've seen this week) are not allowed.

Specifically, I found five references in the rules that forbid these obscene actions. Specifically, the forum rules forbid:

***Material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language
***Any statement that defames, abuses or threatens others
***Derogatory statements that could be construed as bigoted, hateful or racially offensive
***Attacks / Retaliation of any kind. Either against a member or group of members. Doing so will result in a warning. If you continue, you WILL be banned.
***Obscene language and/or graphics

I'm a bit shocked that the moderators put up with such offensive behavior whether the person has been on this site for 20 years or 20 minutes.

You might have noticed these are not normal times around here. It seems you just joined. Are you a fan of Neil or Mike Campbell? It seems maybe that's what drew you here? There are a lot of upset long time fans of the band who are not happy with LB's firing. You might want to cop everyone a break. BTW calling Mick Fleetwood a wh$re (is that better) is hardly offensive. He is known around the rock industry as one of the biggest shysters ever. I'm surprised he hasn't started selling FM coffins like Gene Simmons.

Calling anyone a "whore" is obscene no matter who the recipient is and no matter what the circumstances are. It shouldn't be tolerated. And I've been a big FM fan for 40+ years and joined the group with all the talk about recent events.

I've been around here for a few years, mainly to follow the updates and find information. From what I've seen there's always been some of this tone in the forum about this band member or that band member. But I just tend to steer clear of it.

I've said myself that it's understandable people are upset about what's happened, but there is no need for outright rude behaviour and not being able to respect different way of looking at things.

I have been on this forum longer than Sugar Mouse and he is obviously a Finn fan but he evidently has at least as much knowledge of FM as I do (certainly more than could be accumulated in short time since this turn of events) and probably more, since he's evidently followed them longer - since 70s, whereas for me it's since 90s.

A moderator has thanked him for the information he has provided about Neil Finn since joining this forum, for those interested in more about him but not quite sure where to start. He has not disrespected or shown ignorance about any other member of the group.

I'm feeling quite torn myself atm about everything, as I've been aware of Neil Finn since early 1980s as a great local talent. I know the great work he is capable of. And then I admire Lindsey Buckingham as perhaps my guitar player favourite of all time. I have great respect for them both. So it's a very difficult time for me as fan of both acts. Not totally sure how I feel - just seeing how things unfold.
