Personally, I think this goes for any form of internet communication forms (i.e. FB, email, Twitter, etc) people tend to take what might have been sarcasm/trying to be funny from the poster as something hurtful to the reader. Since we are all sitting behind a screen, we can't gauge the tone of voice in written words. I am the kind of person that wears their heart on their sleeve. And reading sarcasm without an "LOL" or smiley face at the end, sometimes makes me feel as if I were being attacked. I agree with whom said that we need to take everything being written with a grain of salt. And it is easier said than done for us softies, but as long as we let it roll off like water on a duck's back, we'll all be fine. Ohana or not. And I like to pick and choose who I want to interact with online, be it here or anywhere else. You can usually tell by people's post what kind of person they are. Some are consistantly snarky and seem almost hurtful, while others seem like peace lovin' flower children. And I'll pick the later of the two.

So in closing, I leave you with this conclusion...in the words of Rodney King, "can't we all just get along!?"

ďThere's been some hostility towards outsiders who want nothing to do here other than sell something that may or may not be tiki related.Ē

This is the only tikicentral blow ups Iíve seen as of late other than the Prez mug thing.
But even the old scary mean people TC was not that bad, I did bitch about it back then
It was the cool in thing to do at the time.
Some people get all bent when a certin Tiki book writer says thatís not Tiki, but who cares.
Do you like it? If you want to paint your Barny West Tiki pink go ahead or crank Jimmy Buffet
all night, fine. ( I used to play Thin Lizzy when the tiki peeps would come over just to poke at em)
May not be my bag, but if you like it go nutz.
But donít get all upset when people go that sucks or you suck, F em it all just a matter of taste.
To go against the grain used to be cool, now most people fall in line lock step following some
Trend or popular folk, I just canít do it. ( plus I do like to poke people, I think I may be a closet Troll)
But for the most part I do like the Tikicentral vibe, sometimes my attempts at a joke does not go
Well and I piss people off, but I do mean well.
You need to remember that some people just wonít like you, they will hate whatever you do.
This is where some of the Tikicentral haters fall me thinks.
I have found that some of the most peaceful itís cool dude whatever types can do the most damage.
They are the ones pulling the wool over your eyes, Can one really like everyone and everything.
All I am saying is give hate a chance.

I do take issue with the cranking of the Jimmy Buffet
all night, good sir!

But to use your example, Tikiskip, if I may, If you should paint your Barney West Tiki "pink"
and post those pics on TC, you will get comments & criticisms & rightly so.

I find that people who can't offer an opposing opinion, if they have one, are weak
and I will eat them with a nice chianti (slurping sounds)

Also excess use of cannabis & patchouli makes you taste gamey
the lesson here is: Hippies/Love children don't make good eating

or Cannibalism is Tiki!

I totaly agree!
Wait till you see my disco ball Tiki!

Had a guy come in my restaurant some time ago, It is a small diner and light up a Clove cigarette
right behind me at the counter.
Now We did not mind smokers, but dam those clove cigarettes, Can't stand that smell.
He put it out for us.
We were nice to him, even if he was a spice smoker.

Things are all awesome on TC theses days, as far as I'm concerned. Definitely the Golden Era...

I can remember when TC was so bad, there was another website dedicated to how much it sucked:

What ever happened to all those BaliHIjinks losers?

Funny that the whiners from facebook can't handle the "tone" of TC, but the non stop facebook politcal partsianship posts, starving dog pictures, clubbed baby seals, ugly cat and kid photos, photos of fake boob tattoo pin up girl pornstars are all a safe respite from the tiki collector hateful bile liberally spewed here on TC.

Buzzy Out!

Sure am glad that's gone, and there's not another site like that,one that took it's place.

Thing is I've heard and know people who hate TC but come
here when they want to sell their tiki mug, music, event, show, ECT....
But add nothing to the site.
That to me is worst than some nobody comin in trying to sell some
ashtray that's nowhere near tiki.

ATP too many smiles.

I don't believe you. If you wish to be taken seriously Buzzy, I really think you should provide links to such things...

I agree, it has been pretty tame lately and I'm not complaining. Its just that I've met a few people in the past year at events or FB and when I ask if they are on TC I've got a common reply that they don't go there anymore. Not trying to single anyone out, just making an observation.

ATP-No, its not you.

John O-I do feel a sense of kinship when I get to hang with other tikiphiles, polypopsters and urban archaologists. We appreciate a lot of things that other people don't. So when I say I've got an Orchids of Hawaii R-1 mug, someone will know what the hell I'm talking about.

GROG think we should ban BONG and put ATP and John -O on the chopping block. Their first misstep and chop, they join Bong in being banned.

TC moderators should also permanently ban anyone who starts one of those: "TC and everyone on it sucks, so I'm leaving and never posting again!" threads...and then shamefully comes back a few hours/ months/days later.

Buzzy Out!
