Since the last few weeks, we’ve seen many inappropriate comments on the Adam4Adam blog, especially from 3-4 individuals who are, as usual, disrespectful with Dave, Adam4Adam, the subject of the post, and everyone else who disagrees with them. You took your hatred to the next level, and that level is unacceptable here. It is a peaceful blog owned and managed by Adam4Adam team to discuss, express opinions and share intelligent thought, about everything from music to sexuality and LGBTQ rights. You probably noticed that some of your comments have not been published here, as a matter of fact, some of your IPs, emails, usernames on the blog has been listed as spam or simply banned. For other respectful individuals,, please find below the blog rules.

Have a great evening!
Thank you for guidelines which will promote and encourage respectful dialogue. Hang in there Dave. So many of us love and respect you!!!
@Dave: l was under the impression that as the site moderator you controlled this.
Based on some of the things that made it past moderation l can only imagine what didn’t make the cut.
While it’s nice to agree, it’s even better to be able to agree to disagree.
I do control this yeah.
I love to read different opinions, many guys here are respectful and won’t show hate message to me or A4A because they dont agree with me. But some do, and those are out.
Ohh, so if you control what gets posted, then its entirely possible that comments which fulfill all the rules/guidelines but disagree from your point of view may not get posted. Is that correct? That’s a legitimate and a fair question.
No, if it’s polite and not attacking anyone else, I’ll post it. But usually it is not polite and commenters are attacking others.
From now on, NONE of these will be posted
I think it’s great that Adam4Adam has taken such a positive stand against online bullying, trolling…etc. Thank you
I applaud you. I applaud those who take the high road…who don’t succumb to external pressures. You take the initiative to remove or not publish misleading or demeaning behavior. Please continue. I support you. You honor the First Amendment!
You guys here at A4A do a great job and THANK YOU. Keep up the great woek you have here.
Its about time, totally agree. We all have different opinions but we are still human and want respect. Dave does a excellent job. We need to push forward and enjoy every day. Thanks again.
Dave does a piss poor job because he’s a liberal cock sucking scumbag… U should let a whole bunch of illegal aliens live with u, Dave, bleeding heart asshole!!!
While you are here, can you get your IT guys to fix the site? The fake profiles from Africa (5549 miles away) cant be reported anymore. The site says “failed to create a report ticket”. The spam is getting fierce.
Hey, thanks can you email me at [email protected] with a screen shot?
Hey guys, send all ur spam to that address and make sure you EMAIL BOMB DAVE AT THAT ADDRESS AND INUNDATE THE ADAM 4ADAM SITE to crash their servers. That might happen in the near future as well Dave…. You are pure evil, you lousy fuck!!!!!!!
This is wonderful news! So going forward all members will be able to express their views and be treated neutrally and fairly. Members will be able to express views about being politically Left or Right with no castigation. Members will be able to express views about music beyond the limits of diva and pop without castigation. And members will be able to say if they care or don’t care about high fashion without castigation. And members will be able to say whether or not they give a hoot or not about the lifestyles of the rich and famous, the celebrities… Read more »
Sure, but you are on the spam list, so every of your comment will be read and if anything somewhat negative is written, won’t be posted
With all on these thumbs down on the positive comments regarding a more civil discussion/s, I’m not surprised. I do agree ‘myself’ to temper my comments, however considering what’s going on in this country (a return to the past horrors) I can’t help but vehemently disagree with the insanity of hate/really shitty politics. “BLACL LIVES DO MATTER.”
Black lives don’t really matter…… To the Democratic party, that is. But keep voting for those frauds, Lamar, like every other dumb fucking black moron and see if anything changes in the hood. Dumbass!
And refused to address the very individual who seems to pick and chose which comments to post. Not a fair blog if and when the moderator refuses to equally allow both sides of a conversation.
In the past, I have written things when I was angry, and regretted doing so. It’s nice to read guidelines and think before I hit post comment. I was hoping this would happen. It’s easy to get heated about things online and take it too far. Thank you.
Dave, I haven’t been on here for a while, and its been even longer since I posted, but I just wanted to say I found you beyond FAIR, and far more accepting than you needed to be. I hate when guys here disrepect each other, we should be better. Even worse, my cousin got cuaght up in a mess because his screen name is similar to a prolific nasty cry-baby, so he gave up on the blog too … but that just speaks to how the squeakiest ewheels dont need grease save for a huge amount of negative attention. Keep… Read more »
Just wondering if anything can be done about all the bots in the chats. I’ve just had three chats, and ALL of them were fake. It’s hard for the real people to get through the noise. I’m good at spotting them, but I hate the waste of time and effort.
Steve did you report them?
It is important because when you report, it blocks the account.
My question/comment isn’t about this article directly… It seems as though there are no other blog posts after this October 2020 article. Have you guys stopped producing it because of the infighting/harassment of the many by a small few? If so, I find that sad and I know that the owners/management of AdamforAdam can you do so much better than that! If the block has not been updated in the last few months because of something else then I hope that whatever that is, that it be resolved as quickly as possible because I think the direct voice from those… Read more »
Hey Men! Is it peculiar that the terms of distribution are tied to productions that can at any point pre,post or during could be “doctored,artistically-directed,edited” and redistributed while either improving the “quality” could render a completely different artistic-choice dependent branding now playfully and because porn;} blurs the lines in a safe and hands-off approach to issues in our past that may just be some mental tweak we all need to realize that specifics matter in these cases especially in a country with liberties and freedoms unencumbered by corruptions of other republics and democracies so for me; a person imagining is… Read more »
According to the Blog Rules, “It is strictly forbidden to: – to comment anonymously.”
Why then can anyone post on the Blog simply by making up and typing in any user name and any email address? Posts are not tied to User Profiles. Anyone can post “anonymously” under a fake user name and fake email address. The Blog should be tied to a link coming out of Adam4Adam.com through a vetted user’s profile. The process would keep much of the rudeness and disrespect shown by some posters at bay.
