@Buddha, you're quite welcome. I've only just recently learned about the term troll and what it means.
Avatar 12:30pm Woo:

@Buddha, do you get a warning when you're about to hit 20? It's not easy counting how many. I spend a good 4 or 5 just on Wavelengths sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm lukavino:

the best tracks from any of the Kiss solo albums just destroy anything in their collective catalog.

Saw Kiss late last fall. It was a glorious overload of "the big stupid." l loved every second of it.

Oh, it's been too long for me and this Ronstadt song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Allie, ha ha. No, Woo, no warning. You just have to be good about counting the 20 posts yourself. Interestingly, I know of several people who have gone over the 20 limit, but have not been blocked. So I can't help but think it's personal.

How long does the comment ban stand for?
  12:41pm Allie:

@Buddha, I saw that myself. people were posting as many as 60 comments or more. but that was on one of the weekend shows. so maybe whoever was Manning the board on the weekends just don't care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm WoodsOfNH:

@Power Papi: Yeah. I'm a software engineer. Having to deal with windows at work is enough. Haven't had a windows machine at home for many years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Earth Walker!? What time is it in France? 7pm? I am not going to be back on the Wake n Bake show for a while. Too put off by being singled out. The rule is if you go over first time you get a warning. 2nd you are blocked for 2 days. and 3rd time: Blocked 3 times. It's a buzz kill during a pandemic. I have enough anxiety. My presence seems to be a problem there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Buddha of Suburbia:

I meant 3rd time Blocked 10 days. It's not written anywhere. And seeing how others write more than me most of the time as I take my walks in the morning and don't have time to normally stay present it really seems like a personal thing.

Hi Buddha 18 h46 in France
I don’t get it. Who decides ?
I’ve seen some knuckle head comments about over posts But if your a fun person with good comments
What’s the big deal
  12:48pm Allie:

@Buddha, Nooo!, Your presence could never be a problem. don't they know that your chat bored royalty. You should be exempt from the limiting rule.

@Buddha:Did you post something about the Beatles?The Wake comment board is not the friendliest place on WFMU.But,no one should be above the rules.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Hi Pseu!! Earth Walker I honestly feel like it's too much drama for me during a pandemic to always be the one who's made of an example of and be punished for going over the 20 limit post. It's kind of gross. And Allie you are very sweet! Thanks. Hi Heidee! Welcome! A Newbie! Yeah, 20 limit post. But I don't know if you'll be given a hard time you're new and I'm a regular. Bless yer cotton socks, Listener 126464

I agree with listener 126464 too, but listener 126465 can suck it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Thank you WoodsOfNH! I don't miss the drama. My posts are constantly being counted. And I know of one person who wrote 35 and someone who wrote 25. I shouldn't vent here probably will be blocked on here as well. I would think there'd be more interesting things to do with Ken's time than count my posts but claim it's some sort of algorithm metrics

I am doing a third comment now just for the sheer adventure. Greetings from Germany BTW
Avatar 12:57pm Pseu Braun:

Guys, let's have poz vibes you're welcome on my board unless you're gonna make it all about you. That's my only bug-a-boo. The reason is because it makes others not want to come on. Fact.

Roberto LOL! Wow! Heidee, all the way from Germany! Cool! How'd you find WFMU? And how do you like?

@Buddha:Is it a regular thing that you go over 20 post on the Wake board?
Avatar 12:58pm Heidee:

I LOVE WFMU - four.
  12:58pm Earth Walker:

I bet if someone told Ken he was over the limit he would post 600
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Deborah:

I could not post 20 times unless the subject turns toward media, WFMU, feminism, or cats. Otherwise, haven't got the patience. All drained by posting constantly on college online platforms where I must be "professor."
Relax, Buddha! Sometimes walking away from the internet frees up energy and instills calm. Or so I find.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Let's respect Pseu's wishes. It's not all about me. I'm going to get going. Didn't mean to offend. Have a good everyone!

Hey Pseu, you didn't say hi to me. Weeping now. [kidding]

@ami ad, I posted about the Beatles and Quincy Jones. I apologized for my tone on that one. If you didn't see it then I apologize to you now. I don't want to argue about the Beatles. I love them, you don't, it's cool.

The only 3 reasons for getting zapped are:

a) you're a troll
b) you're over-posting every little thought (like Instagram)

Only saw REM right after Murmur came out. In the gym at the University of Maine. Not a whole lot of people there. Opener was Let's Active. REM were really good but Stipe seemed so introverted he could barely look at the audience.

I never share this kind of thing, but yesterday my wife and son were in a gnarly car crash but managed to walk away (they're still shook up); I brought my beloved beagle to the vet this a.m. because she was having labored breathing, and she's still there. And my wife just told her job is gone. So, I know things have been rough, but this is nuts. Hooks do help though.

REM and Wilco are both bands where you start at the beginning and hold on for as long as you can. A couple of LPS worth at least. Then they become "professionalized" and it's a different game.
