Face it guys, if it's a band that isn't liked by a handful of B&C people, it's going to be bashed into obscurity.

But if it's some whiny new Indie band or if it's an well founded already popular band, then the thread is going to be protected at all costs.

I usually don't get involved in these stupid arguments, and I don't plan on continuing this one, I'll talk to you guys later.
Exactly! If it's not a B&C favorite, the band will get chewed and spit out!

And that's not against the rules at all.

It may not be against the rules but it makes that person you're piling on, feel like shit! Not everyone has thick skin like you in your Bowie scenario.

And the mods should feel the need to get involved in this, why?

Hence, my post: "People in this forum are too sensitive." I'm fucking 17, and I'm apparently more mature than about 90% of this board.

They should only feel like shit if it gets personal, and if it gets personal, it's against the rules.

but the experiences of that first car, and the fact that i needed to get expensive maintenance done to the second car (timing belt, crap like that) made me say i want to buy a car, and then sell it BEFORE all the expensive shit starts coming up. i'd love it if i never bought a timing belt again or any of those other several hundred dollars maintenance repairs.
I've only had two used cars my entire life - I'm too much of a princess to deal with the maintenence of a car.

I'd defend him, but I wouldn't get insulted or bothered.
I love telling people I'm a U2 fan, because then they immediately want to bash Bono, which they think bugs the shit out of me but I tell them I could care less because he bugs me sometimes, too. Which immediately deflates some detractors.

Ah, now that I went and read it I see what you mean.

People shouldn't get bent out of shape if people don't like an artist they like. I mean some of you guys poke fun at Kate Bush but I don't get offended.

Really people should be more accepting of criticism of an artist. It is like whenever someone says something negative about Radiohead in B&C and get attacked. If you want to say something negative about an artist you should be willing to have others say negative things about artists you like. B&C doesn't exactly understand that.

Tonight, I'll be listening to The Verve's A Storm in Heaven and one other album. Not sure what yet. Possibly R.E.M.'s Lifes Rich Pageant.

The only time criticisms piss me off is when they're baseless or based on stupid reasoning. Stupidity infuriates me.

I'd say djerdap's post was pretty personal. And I'm not saying that because it personally offended me. I'm saying it cos it insulted Bon Jovi fans.
