speedbump / Dave Brusco 10mo+27dy ago
Can't put the Genie back into the bottle. I know this will break the hearts of many here on this site, since one of my go-to moves is endearing people to myself, but I've decided to close my account here at Kompoz. Yes, I was being facetious and no, I'm not mad. I came here to make music with others. My first attempt was a success with Dan and Astro, but since then, it has been a political shit show. Yea....I know posts have been deleted and a "message" sent to the community, but like this posts indicates, the genie is out of the bottle. Truth is, potentially making music or working on projects with people who have a mindset I'm diametrically opposed to is not in my wheelhouse. That makes part of the problem my own......and I'll own it. The only advice I'll give as my conservative ass goes out the door is YOU SHOULD NEVER ALLOW POLITICS OR IDEOLOGY TO INFECT A MUSIC SITE. I do not know many "conservatives" like myself who are seeking out others to musically collaborate with, but the ones I do know, I will be sure to give them a heads up about this place.

He was a jerk to teachers and we all have a teacher in the family. He was 'absolutely no way' on recreational weed and other personal choices and c'mon now it's Kentucky... We mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things, only one point in electoral college. Media is making a huge deal out of it haha.

I find the Community page totally problematic - Its not just politics...the site is basically unmoderated and is the definition of "abandon-ware." ---aside from groups that are moderated by kompoz members...(and as an side note the mechanics of the group notifications do not work well -- its "all or nothing"..) My opinion is to *get RID* of the problematic Community page, except for site-wide announcements from the admin. Let people pay minimal (less than PLUS) or nothing to create & moderate a group. There are many other music sites out there up and coming that work better mechanically and have actual admins around...

In my view music collaboration sites have gone tribal in these last few years... When you post stuff and it gets ignored, you loose interest then people leave ... You need to remove the Facebook element and rethink a better approach in bringing people together instead of creating division...

Lets be clear, search the posts for 6 months.. NO political posts. Only 1 mine, with one word "Impeach" that triggered our dear climate hoaxing Trump sycophant..(SpeedHump) to post over and over and over.. and over again.. he wasn't staying away from it as suggested.. but eating it up! lolol Which basically proves hes not leaving for that.. he was eating up me feeding him facts and more facts about Trump filling the swamp with raw sewage.. I deleted that post.. and he was still steaming like his moonshine maker.... hes leaving for other reasons.. and trying to lie out the door that it has to do with the politics hes spews about daily on other sites.. Maybe audio rejection is his real reason?.. it sure as hell not over ONE deleted post.. where he was served facts, reality, science and truth hot off the grill... To that I say goodnight my good lads.. AND GO BERNIE! THE REAL SWAMP DRAINER!!

What a shame... Cannot say I agree with all of what Dave said then or even now. But to lose a member of the site for whatever reason is sad. Hope he comes back some day, and realizes that the music is where it's at and the politics is just really petty stuff. I unfollowed that thread shortly after my last comment on it - have no idea how long it went on and what happened. Partly am glad that I did so. Everyone should be sad about this one . . . everyone should be welcome regardless of politics, and disagreements should be handled with respect instead of ad hominem if politics is even going to be discussed in the first place. And yep, from what I've seen on Kompoz, that goes for both sides. Just like in the real world. OK, end of rant. I'm pretty much inactive here at the moment if anyone could tell by my profile picture (for personal reasons - not politics), but I am responding to messages. Just felt like I had some ownership to this, since I was one of the people who responded to him. Let's make sure this doesn't happen again . . .

lets be clear 1 post that speedbump responded to 40+ times lolololol is not why hes leaving Ktown... Heres how I know.. he loves political posts.. which is why he was eaten alive with being schooled on said post. that post I deleted... The bigger truth.. if the community page was turned into a KKK rally daily.. I would stay cause im here about the music.. nothing will keep me from that. so his weak ass contrived post should be taken with a grain of gunpowder.

It doesn't seem like anyone on any serious level is blaming you directly and alone, liljoe. And if they are I disagree with them. On the flip side, it's not wrong to be sad over someone leaving, for any reason. It was an ugly thread. And to be completely honest, your facts and data (though they were there) were also laced with more personally based rant-y stuff. I get it, speedbump also had that. That's why I said both sides. But do two wrongs really make a right? Is it even worth it now to say stuff like "audio rejection" or "Trump Sycophant" or does it just add to the fire? Plus, posting an obviously provocative community post and then calling everyone who responded to it obsessed with politics is kind of untrue. I'm not saying that was the reason speedbump left (I don't know him), but I mean you're giving him plenty of material to connect the dots. I'm not upset with you or anyone on that thread, just upset this ugliness happened. Hopefully we can move on. I'm not blaming you or lecturing you, I'm just sayin'. Time to unfollow this thread. Peace liljoe, and everyone else.

chill out MJM im over this pitty party speedbump loved that post and was on it 24/7 posting like I said 40+ times.. If I had not deleted it he would have continued... hell he might be leaving cause i deleted it?? dont know maybe for more time to do the same stuff he did on that post on twitter or facebook dont know. If he loved music he would ignore 1 deleted post political post in 6months or maybe a year.. GO KENTUCKY!! boy they dodged a bullets..History trickle down taxs gut schools. happened here under repuke rule. 1Billion in filthy rich tax cuts 1 Billion cut from veterans, roads, schools, oversight, and no State worker wage increases for 10 f ing YEARS! Thats wht repuke govt looks like.. and now at the fed level. NO infrastructure spending but borrowing 1.5Trillion from Japan & China to give tax cuts to the 1%.. oh and the 99% got 17% of those cuts. yippy so much for the "middle class tax cut"" time to wakey just facts!

my response c/p from joe's post.... whether its a post or its a reply does not matter, the end results came out the same. if political topics were kept in a group, 2 members might still be here. no body knows how many more. joe, I am sorry bud, but you get 4 sour cherries from me on this whole deal. I know and understand it was only one post, but the replies in other posts add up man and take their toll on many IMO. I truly wish you guys would take my advise, just create a group again and try hard to keep the politics there. I understand one left because of being monitored but that issue began because of the political banter. again I beg of you all to be civil with each other, make a political group and keep the politics there. I did not type this being upset, only sad.

xterrabill   commented 10mo+27dy ago


correct, but so is love. do we need to read political views here? (outside of a group) some believe we do. if we cant we are being censored, therefor someone is against freedom of speech. not so. why? you don't yell bomb at an airport, you don't cause folks to leave a great music site! if they are abusive to the TOS, that's another matter. politics directly or indirectly caused people to leave this site (myself included long ago). joe is at least partially responsible for some of that, I hate to say it, but its true, either by egging on others to respond to his comments, or his post, (singular recently) directly or indirectly, with a post or comments, it doesn't matter, the results came out the same, folks are now Gone. the community page has somewhat of a captive audience, groups do not. without politics on this page, there has been no issue, within the last few weeks there has been a political post, now there was an issue. I see it clearly and predicted that there would be an issue, for the life of me, I cant see why others don't. I tried to help out and tame all the fuss, the creek was running clear, but a thousand politicians came by, muddied the water, and gave us fear. you can be political without offending others. ecology, science, whatever, just leave the names out or descriptivism's, if you want to get extreme, take it to the group, compromise a little, be respectful of others, don't cram your opinions down someone's throat, common sense. don't be coy, hide behind a right to speech, we are not stupid, we are musicians and writers.

Well, this whole thing started on my last community post, .. though, I didn't take part in the fireworks. And, at a point, I was thinking about closing this post .. but, hmm .. maybe you can't do that, after all? But anyway, .. if there is a way, .. I didn't exercise that option. I remember a co-worker of mine, once commented "I never talk about politics or religion." And she was true to that. There was this wall of silence about her, in the years that I knew her .. that in anything, even just a bit controversial, .. she was blank. But, .. is that a way to live? Politics & beliefs are at the heart of what we do, and how we do it. That said, .. I seldom or ever have observed someone sharing their perspectives on life .. and someone who has just listened to their pitch go .. "Wow, .. this person has just made total sense to me, .. Where have I been? I've been wrong all this time." .. It doesn't work that way. We've all evolved over years of experiences, to where we are, right now. And no matter how hard we hit someone else over the head with our philosophy, .. we probably will not change their approach to life, in any meaningful way.

Ken - you're right of course. But then. if you don't tell people how you feel, you're sort of living a lie in a way. Be it politics / religion / whatever. For what it is worth, in relation to Religion, I don't believe in God. I do however believe in humans and the human spirit. Within us we hold both good and evil. Gods and devils reside within us, nowhere else. As for politics - I have never felt myself able to vote for anyone who operates on an individualistic philosophy (despite my surname!). I am for the collective good rather than the wealth of the individual. I base my politics around that philosophy and therefore tend to side with the left rather than the right. However I respect people's right to think differently. I don't necessarily agree with them but after all we are free to decide what we want about life. And finally - it is a shame that the act of making music is colo(u)red by these differences. However it's a choice we all make. I have seen a few musical offerings that sound good but then have heard (for example) lyrics which really make me uncomfortable. So I don't join in. That's what we need to do here. Join in where you feel comfortable. Skip by where you don't. That's my twopence halfpenny worth anyway.

True, but if others dont share info. you might have some folks voting against their own economic interest.. but yes people are raised into their parents faith.. training.. If you took a small child and raised them away from everything and told them 1 rock was god and the family worshiped that 1 rock every night.. he would be a 20 yr old. praying to a rock everynight.. so yea its personal and should not be up for debate.. Politics is dif because it impacts all of us. Backing out of a WORLD WIDE EVERY COUNTRY climate accord hurts us now and future generations. Thats a fact> the evidence is overwhelming. OUR military believes it , 99% of climate experts from around the globe, and EXXON MOBILE own leaked doc's from 30yrs ago knows its happening.. also in those docs were their plans to sell it as a hoax.. guess who bought that the Trump base.. Heres what they dont know TRUMP took out a FULL PAGE New York Times AD along with a few other $$$$ people warning of climate change 10yrs ago> its all part of his act to turn on the ill informed. Kind of like him finding God just before running for office.. so yea.. I really dont think there should be a lot of political banter here.. thats why I only throw 1 out maybe once a yr or two..

Even though they can't really put a cohesive sentence together.......just ranting about Goldman Sachs and how they were betrayed by voting for someone that acutally is doing what he said they would do. WE know the Donald is an imperfect instrument, we know he will probably not accomplish more than he has already in a few short years. BUT, have faith! Steve Bannon is on the scene, research his latest interviews from mid October to present. This is the guy we need to put our support behind for 2024. The American middle class revolution is just getting started, people like Burnie Sander & Hillary Clinton (she will emerge, Bernie & Joe have no chance). The Clinton Machine is alive and well! Patriots like Bannon and Coulter will be our guiding light. The American Revolution 2020 is in full swing!

Everyone can post on the community page whatever he/she/it likes ! What s on your mind ? This is written and an invite from Kompoz to create a community post with something a person has in mind ! It must not be about music ! When i loook here and read posts or comments that i do not like or that i am not interested in i have the option to ignore them ! Sounds super simple because it is !

Extremely frustrating . . . I don't know who speedbump was or his motives for leaving, but I do know this: It's fine to have whatever opinion you want on politics, religion, and whether or not they should be on Kompoz. But when we are not even open to listening and discerning: when the "other" is just a white supremacist or some crap, When one side of the aisle is making all the comments on this issue and shoot down anyone who says otherwise . . . NOT purely logically but on a personal level When we are assaulting the music, the character, and what not of anyone who has a difference... Have no idea that's why speedbump left. And he was guilty of the same stuff (as I said), so this time it's not one-sided, but I can understand it. Mike (Marshall) should have never left either. And forgive me for this unforgivable sin: but I actually feel bad about it. Shocking, huh? I don't even care about this political crap, yet I have been defending your guys's right to say all this stuff whenever the topic of whether it should be off the community page came up. Maybe I shouldn't have. I love this site, and love the people on it. But it has become more than unpleasant, and maybe I should consider leaving now? I have been stronger. I have withstood everything, and refused to be bullied. And I'm not talking just politics this time. I have striven to understand even when I was being attacked for my talent and my morality. I'm already not that active now. Probably wouldn't even be missed. I know for fact who wouldn't miss my talents in this thread (by courtesy of PM's). This used to be a fun site that I logged into multiple times every day. You will try to spin it however you want if I leave, but there's no way you can deny my contributions here and my longevity. Since I'm a bad, talent-less lyricist to some of you guys anyways, who cares? Just so sad right now. At the total apathy of us losing members (especially in the case of Mike Rowe). Nobody taking anyone's right here to have an opinion. But come on...

MJ Political banter was NOT what got a couple of people booted// it was racial slurs.. and it offended someone(i know who and im not saying) and they complained. Word is those involved were "joking" but it did offend.. It had zero to do with my post, which I deleted. My post is not why Speedbump left, he spent 3 days posting countless times, trying to get thru the Red Sea with a soda straw snorkel.. He was mad i took it down.. cause he loved it, at least 3 times I suggested he ignore it and stop posting to it.. He started getting crazy and aggressive after never having a decent come back to facts..And Doc threw water on him. So stop being so down and drama-ish your a damn good lyrics person,, one of the few that actually post based on the music.. and make adjustments to fit song and vocal.. Best thing now is stop posting here.. do not lament speedbump he left not over politics.. that was an out the door lie.. as for the others..they didnt leave, they were booted..no tolerance for racial stuff... Political stuff should be reserved for Groups I agree as RAF suggested.. but the group Ivan setup withered after he left.. and as previously stated I think in the last 6 months, and honestly maybe the last 2+ yrs I have not posted anything political.. though I have seen some super charge political songs offered up.. Well wheres the line drawn?? So lets all quit making something out of nothing and get back to music making ((:

this an outright lie! you joe kept antagonizing the guy by making more and more and MORE political speeches in his face till he quit, yes he should have left the thread....and blocked you! but you caused it....all you. then you deleted it! because it was your post. I was there I seen it, all 3 posts, I had comments on all 3. one of my comments above is c/p from one of the posts you deleted. my proof is as easy for all to see, just look how many times you make a political rant in this thread alone. now he will say "others were there" what ya bet. just learn the lesson, don't cause this site to loose members and just make the political group. PLEASE!!!

very close to the facts!!! but joe deleted not 1 but 2 posts and the contents besides actually causing someone to quit this site who is using fiverr to PAY people and was looking for help here, who knows where that could have went. count how many times joe gets political in THIS post alone. ya better hurry before he deletes them! I count 8, some telling me who to vote for, I guess we all come here for that don't we. Nah, joes not the problem....I am.
