I think the point is that this is happening anyway
and will continue to happen
so why not try to control it?

then again
my opinion and its lack of worth are noted

exactly

Things were fine until a few POP loving, ATYCLB/HTDAAB hating people took over and started harassing all over in EYKIW and Where the album has a name forums, after the new album came out.
It's always the same people posting same stuff, too.

My guess is that most of these people might be Radiohead loving guys.

Make a Radiohead forum and these guys will be busy posting there - or atleast those who dislike U2 being criticised will have a place to bash Radiohead.

How is my suggestion ?

Btw I like all U2 albums - From Boy to the "..Bomb"

If you look at the "ATYCLB I like it" and "Perfect tracklisting for ATYCLB" threads in Everything you know is wrong, you can see some lovely behaviour by ATYCLB haters that is preventing to have any normal discussion.

Does normal discussion preclude disagreement? I think the contention that a lot of folks have, especially the older members, is that there is a homogeneity of responses in that particular forum. Bland is the word that comes to mind if the occasional colourful remark was disallowed.

Maybe a definition of fan needs to be added to the FAQ section, for those who have a low tolerance for band criticism... because really, what we're all after is the most sterile, uniform, and lifeless discussion board imaginable.


SUCCESS!

Normal discussion IMO does not include calling others blind followers, sheep and stupid or whiners because they like an album you don't. It does not include trashing all over an album 100% of one's time on the forum. It does not include saying "U2 sold out, are wusses for making the music they make" and the, it seems, ancient "but you don't get it" argument. It doesn't include that in a pro-album thread there has to arrive an anti-post about the very same album.

People say jick's post are annoying and he got a "sabbatical" leave on EYKIW forum for a while. Why can the same not be applied to the most hateful anti-ATYCLB posters?
I feel his anti-POP threads provide a balance to the tides of anti-ATYCLB posts, myself. And he was nowhere near the lows of some of the posters.

Michael Griffiths's threads would be a good example of discussion.

It's also easy to say "it's fun to read those threads" or "get over it" and be above it - but would you still say the same if your favorite U2 album got the treatment ATYCLB gets?
It's also very easy to just turn to one side and say "complainers are to blame for the negativity". Stop the cause, not just the result.
