    Why isn't there a tdpri discord ? I would love to chat real time with some of the telecaster players here. I guess it would need a moderator, so that is why. They are busy enough moderating here.

    Great idea! But it would indeed take an enormous moderation effort to make it worthwile.

    Just think of the liability. Most of the people I've "met" on forums have been nice, but I've met a couple of real nut cases too. I had one jerk on another forum that I put on ignore so I didn't realize he was following me around the forum commenting on everything I posted. Then he quoted one of my posts and added an obscenity and reported it to the moderators to try and get me banned. He was too much of knuckle head to realize that they track all changes to posts so they knew he was lying.

    It's one of the reasons I won't give personal information that could identify me.

    I'm not interested by :mad: discord.
    Idiots and jealous are everywhere : I try to avoid to become like them... :lol:
    If it's not possible :(, then I leave the place.
    I'm interested by informations - as valid or serious as possible. :cool:
    It's also what I try to give too. o_O
    But it's me, OK ? :D

    Many years ago, there used to be a real-time chat room on here. It was a lot of fun.

    I hide in the house with a computer so I don’t have to talk to people real time. I avoid discord for that reason.

    When was that? I’ve been here since ‘03 and don’t remember that at all... it would have been fun.

    ...some folks seem to have trouble recognizing the difference between discourse and discord. And that's all I have to say about that, and won't be convinced otherwise...

    I don’t remember it either.

    One time... years and years ago, I suggested to Paul that we have a real time chat with well known Tele players. This was about the time that Brad and Brent had been lurking. Too many people were causing them problems, so they left about as quickly as they had shown up. I suggested that someone host a live chat with guys like that, so that there could be real time moderating happening (rather than after the fact), and shield those guys from the knuckleheads.

    He said he liked the idea, but nothing ever came of it.

    One of the things that I like about TDPRI is that knuckleheads seem to be underrepresented here.

    Back when the only bug we worried about was Y2K.

    I hope that post does not add discord to the discourse.

    For the record I sure wish Brad and Brent still were around here.
    That’d be awesome
