Actually, this poll could be used to surreptitiously measure the sense of humour of the forum members. It seems that 50% have no sense of humour. Admittedly, I didn't vote because I couldn't bring myself to vote for The Partridge Family, nor was I going to vote for either Yes or Genesis.
 
 
 
I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.

I'm just happy to have a non-Genesis and non-Yes option to vote for, so no complaints from me. ;) I enjoyed the Partridge Family, I especially liked Susan Dey. Still, I would have have preferred it had The Banana Splits and The Monkees been it, instead of Yes and Genesis.* I like me some sunshine, bubblegum pop.

*I like Yes and Genesis, but I feel much the the same way some feel about certain classic rock on the radio, in this case I feel it gets overplayed in the forum sometimes.

Same. Susan Dey brightens my day. A favourite of mine with Paul Williams was The Phantom of the Paradise film and music.

Glad to see the Partridge Family is winning. We can vote for Yes and Genesis any old day. ;) How often does the Partridge Family pop up on here? Tongue

The "corner" observation from Finland, I havenīt got any idea what "The Partridge Family" is (still havenīt got, I havenīt googled it). It just when I listened a bit that what Yesesis put here, it was just so hilarious that I have to vote it!

An observation, I saw The Partridge Family on TV a lot as a kid, I didn't once see Yes or Genesis on Tv.

And... they had Susan Dey!!!

And this humour poll should tell you everything you need to know about the humour and social skills of some prog fans, still voting for Yes and Genesis... that in itself is even funnier...

I once, if only momentarily, thought this forum lacking in humour because so few laughed at my jokes. A millisecond later I realized, no, itís not because people here lack a sense of humour, itís because they have a good sense of humour and prefer to laugh when itís actually funny.

Iím only being partially serious there, see, not funny. I do find this to be a harder audience generally than I have been used to with humour and riffing off each other. Although perhaps the lols were compassionate lols at other fora.   I was once told I have no sense of irony when I responded in a seemingly serious way, and politely, in an ironic fashion. That was awkward. It was hard to respond back without spoiling the joke. Also, I have noticed that when various people quote my posts while editing out parts of them, itís my favourite bits, what I thought were the funny bits, that tend to get edited out. Iím not sure if that says more about my poor sense of humour, or a lack of humour from others.

At a former forum, I was told not to tell people when Iím joking because it spoils the humour. ó figuring out if someone is joking can be part of the fun, and with the realisation, that much funnier, but sometime I have wondered if I should spell it out when Iím joking since I often wrap humour within seemingly serious posts.

Anyway, I love humour, and there are various very witty people at the site, but sometimes this place can seem a bit too on the serious side fir me. Humour is a very important tool of socialization. It can bring people together, but also push them apart.   I tend not to like genuinely mean-spirited humour,. I like to rib people, Nd be ribbed, but not to wound them. Like with music, there is no one taste in humour. I tend to favour dark comedy, self-deprecating humour, toilet humour and very bad puns. Since this site is so multi-national, culture and language also affects reaction.

Now this ended up being an all too serious post; carry on with the fun.

True, and stereotypes generally have truth to them. Prog is serious business.

By the way, I was just reminded of what someone told me at a past forum, or at least the general sentiment.   People either get the joke or they donít, if they do, thatís great, if they donít, theyíre idiots. Now, I would not go that far, but I appreciate the sentiment and attitude.

Don't be so hard on yourself. You have a great sense of humour. Your entertaining forum posts and album reviews are testament to that. It's at tough times like these when laughter is the best medicine.  Smile
 
I'd vote for Susan Dey any day over Genesis and Yes. Smile
 
I'm looking forward to the Genesis/Yes/Monkees poll and seeing how that turns out, although I can guess who's going to win. Smile
 
The Monkees are going to win it bigly - not even close. Wink

I appreciate that, and I really appreciate your sense of humour and song and album word play, as well as your positivity even when faced with certain negativity,   Thatís often when one shows oneís true colours.    I took it really hard once when someone, a paid moderator in fact for a tv station website, insisted that I should stop trying to do humour cause I sucked at it. If you canít take criticism, you are very unlikely to make it, but I would have rather had some constructive criticism (having been a teacher, I particularly value that). What he said did reinforce my doubts. Maybe it was a reality call and it was the kindest thing he could have done, Or maybe he just didnít like me because I called him a boob. 😀. Yep, that likely was it.

That's how I feel about it as well. I'm completely fine with people voting for Yes or Genesis, or whatever way they choose to vote on any of these polls. But what I feared when I posted this was people attacking me for it. I've certainly been attacked before on here, and was braced for that this time but somewhat surprisingly it didn't happen. My man Dellinger posted that the tune was annoying and he was voting for Yes, and I have no problem with any of that. No where in his post was there any personal attack on me(and there never is with him as far as I can tell). And then the Pink Floyd facepalm lol. That was clever and in a spirit of fun was how I saw that. So you just never know. But again I agree with you, as long as it's not mean-spirited then I generally have no problem with anything anyone posts on here.

I like "chill", but I don't like coldness basically. I would like this to be a generally warm, tolerant, and welcoming site for all that are warm, welcoming, and tolerant.

I'll happily disagree and passionately debate with people if I have the time, patience and mostly the mind for it (I like it when people point out my errors, or flaws in logic, not in a really nit-picky way, as I like to learn from my mistakes),, but what is irritating to me is when people are talking at cross-purposes, talking past one another, or just being plain insulting. But I genuinely like and care about everyone I've communicated with at this forum, and am not the type to bear grudges.

By the way, there have been times when people have thought I was attacking them when my intentions were wholly different, and, dare I say, altruistic. I try to be balanced when dealing with things, but sometimes one goes off-kilter.
Sometimes one is walking a tightrope between expectations, and stumbling along the way. Sometimes I have thought someone was attacking me, then I saw it from a different perspective. Anyway, as is said, one can attack the ideas, but one should not attack the person. Avoid ad hominems. In some cases, some do take it too badly and overly personally when the ideas are being challenged. I don't like it when people criticise an idea and then don't expatiate on it even when asked for clarification. I think of those as hit-and-run drivers.

I sometimes get a little nervous when I post a topic and when I post at all, especially when I'm sharing something of a personal nature, baring my soul, or even just baring my buttocks. I mooned everyone with a poll of mine before: "Moon in June"; "The Moon is Down" and "Beautiful as the Moon, Terrible as an Army with Banners". Of course one should think about how others will react before posting and have some filters. When I started posting I only cared about the ideas and creativity and did not consider the person behind the posts. The quality and qualities of the post itself were all that mattered to me, and it took a while before I saw it as more than a sort of creative writing exercise.   I loved flamewars, and it being so impersonal to me, I was never burned myself, and all my burns/ insults were done in good fun. Same thing with my early role as a troll, and boy did I troll before I knew what a troll was. To me it was just creative writing, like writing a play. Now I do prefer that sense of community, caring and sharing, and all the fuzzy stuff which can be so nauseating to some. :)
