I think this is the most active respectable forum out there. I have learned a lot and know I have more to learn. For the most part it is good natured, and when not it is taken care of. I am proud to be part of this site, and hope to be here for a long time to come.

Keep up the good work. This should be a family oriented site. Thanks for all the good information and commrodery (sp) here.

First off, I want to say thank you to not only you for creating this site, but also to ALL of the moderators. I know that the job isn’t easy,

Lord knows that I’ve received more than a few of the ominous PM’s asking “Did you really want to say that” or “Do me a favor and read your post again.” and sometimes (ok, most times. Ok, just about all the time) you guys are right.

I’ve been on boards where the name of the game is how big a flame do you carry into the war. I’ve found that these sites quite simply, and thankfully, just don’t last. This site is different. While I’m not trying to diminish the work of the Moderators, I do know that there is a fair amount of self moderation that takes place. Member ‘A’ posts something that has the potential of upsetting others and Member ‘B’ drops him/her a PM asking if that’s the way they really wanted to have the post taken. I’m willing to bet that 9 times out of 10 the post is edited to clarify the point. To be honest, I think most of us really try to keep it above board and self moderate. Yes there have been times where a post has sparked a flame, but I willing to bet not many posts further down is someone stating that “This kind of post is not the way we do things here.” I don’t know if we secretly want to be moderators or simply just don’t put up with it in what we consider ‘Our House’.

Phil, you and the Moderators have created a very special place here. In reading back to The Inception of The Brethren 10:45 PM 3/5/03, it looks that was at least part of the reason for it being created. I also know that it’s only through your hard work and consideration for others that it is going to last for a long time. I only hope that we can keep up the tradition and standards that you all have set.

Thank you again.

I would like to thank the poster mod guy who posted that thing about new members. Had a point I made a while back where I thought the word "freshmen" or even "Sophomore" memeber (which more precisely defines what a new member is of about any body, instead of the derogatory "Newbie," "Newby," "Noob," "Nubie," "Noobe," "Noobie," or anything like that. In fact, I now think the words could be put into the word sensor thingy to make an excellent point. One is, who actually knows whether a new member is new at BBQ and second... what if we end up turning off a new member who would have shared the Moinkball, or ABT, or Fattie, or Bacon Explosion. You never know where your next great thing is gonna come from.

Well, other than officially making Mindy Vegas or Sasha Blonde the official mascot of the BBQ Brethren I am out.

I like it here. I was a lurker on another board for about 2 years and didn't like the way the "powers" took a blind eye in letting some members get picked on. And occasionally I saw THEM do the picking-on also. That's not the way it should be and it certainly wasn't for me. I won't go back there if you paid me.
