    I will toss in my 2 cents on this and agree 100% with Dale. It was impossible to keep Chit Chat under control. You had so many long standing members who broke the rules on a daily basis that trying to clean everything up was a hopeless endeavor. I never wanted to ban anybody and I tried to give warnings or edit or delete posts but not only is that time consuming it ALWAYS resulted in a disgruntled PDF member sending me angry PMs about "How dare you edit my post! So-and-so said something mean to me once 2 years ago and YOU didn't do ANYTHING about it rabble rabble rabble!!!" . There was no way to win. If you didn't edit every post you would get PMs from PDF members upset that you weren't disciplining people but then editing posts just made everybody mad and I would end up having to lock the thread. I hated doing that because I didn't want to ruin a good discussion but people just refused to be civil with each other and follow the rules. I'm sure Pearl was tired of dealing with it and in the end, a section that has nothing to do with drums just isn't that useful to Pearl as a company. I'm sure they were also concerned about prospective members being scared off by vulgar comments or posts in some of the Chit Chat threads and they didn't want serious players to think this wasn't a serious forum for drummers.

    Layoffs at the PDF mean some members had to be cut. Sorry, bro, he's gone.

    ^ Nice commentary. Probably can't reproduce because I've been signed in since well before any shenanigans.

    Young Alan can't find this thread. Poor guy.
