It was weird because at the time we had no idea there was a post "The Stag and Phil Lesh101 same person?"

That is what I was trying to say but I was told I was a fool for saying so.
Well, in print you must stick to as much fact as possible when stating things in absolute terms, or make sure people know you are stating an opinion. You can't rely on people to assume your intentions or let them assume what you were trying to say, especially after starting a flame!!
Fact: The Dead stopped touring.
Fact: Phish were still touring.
Fact: Phish did grow a little when the Dead stopped touring, but they were HUGE already and didn't need Dead heads to keep them rolling.
: Phish suddenly became successful when Jerry died and owe their success to that in any way.
Phish may not be my favorite band, but you can't deny their unique approach and their talent! Mike G played Phil style bass at TRI better than most pro players I know. Music is always a taste thing no need to bash it, unless you wanna start a fight, and that's what happened me thinks....
As for the security on this site, hats off to those that keep us from being cyber raped. It is not easy and trolls are a wase of space here. it is easier to knock them out then to allow them to run rampant. You did start your membership here most unorthodox. Hippy, cool, square or not, that is just asking for trouble within an online qroup. A little conformity, where it helps everyone around you, never really hurt anyone and is an act of kindness.
Finally finished our new site...
