I want you guys to know that this thread should be thrashed. And I'll stick PLEBA and sometimes come here. I do believe in freedom of speech, but to me you talk behind my back, and I EVEN heard the converstaion.

Because you and your bands are above it, but it's okay to treat everybody else that way? I could never stand mean spirited people with twisted senses of humor who thought stuff like that was funny and get their entertainment at someone else's expense. But they don't care, unless somebody does it to them, then it's wrong. I have enough abuse from people in my own life, I don't need this shit from you. We are all premium members, if either of you have anything to say to me I say take it to PMs.
Holy mother of crap.

Do you not read ANY of my posts. From now on (and here is an ACTUAL RULE), please para-phrase back to me what I have stated to you BEFORE you post (this is what I have had to do with every other person in my life that has not understood anything I just stated). Do you want me to explain that further?

We are talking about opinions here. Angela Harlem and Salome and others have been going into Radiohead threads for a long time saying that they (radiohead) is bland and boring. I look forward to Salome's comments in Radiohead threads now. I know they are coming, and I find it pretty damn funny.

Do I race of and call him "mean spirited" and yell at him because "he is getting his entertainment at someone else's expense?" No.

I really want to pull my hair out right now. I really can't understand how it is "mean spirited" when I opiniate about a band like eVERCLEAR, but when YOU, U2KITTEN, opiniate about Coldpaly, it is fine.

DO YOU NOT SEE THIS?

I wanted to reinforce Salome's point....This is the best post in this thread and it has been overlooked, I think.

And they're right.

Its a funny business...
Again, it is personal opinion. And I know for a fact that Angela Harlem is not part of the Radiohead/Coldplay clique. She makes me laugh when she talks about her loathing for Radiohead too. But she likes Bush!

can i make a sugesstion? since this is essentially a pleba-esque thread (calling for pictures of art alexakis), can these things be confined to the PLEBAns section? that's what it's for, isn't it?

Cute Irish Bono just seems so cute.... is it b/c she has "cute" in her name or that she likes Everclear?

I liked Everclear's hits Santa Monica and Everything to Everyone but my problem with the band was the sameness of some of the songs, especially with the singles.

I'm used to the music hate on this forum and to be honest its quite entertaining. I should know about hate.... even the forum administrators promoted some of it...

I would love to see a day when bands like Matchbox 20, Creed, Nickelback, Limp Bizkit fans are able to post here and not be subjected to the musical cliquishness/ snobbery. Of course the entertainment level of this forum would go down big time as a result....

You don't think it has gone down (the entertainment level)? I almost feel like I have been elevated to some high-snobbery because other have "left." And I am far from a super music snob. I can't keep up with the local indie kid scene here in Chambana.

You in Memphis now?

edit for clarification...this is zonelistener using one of his lame, very anti-indie, anti-snob alters.

I can see it was a mistake not to close this thread much earlier


NO ONE over here but the admins & mods decides what is appropriate forum behaviour
if everyone would start imposing their opinion on what is right and what isn't the entire forum would result into threads like this and that would make me cry so we can't have that

does that mean the mod team is some sort of dictatorial regime?
by NO means
we can be contacted my emails (which is in every mod's sig), there is a "report" option for every post, we can be reached by pm's and if you have any suggestions there is a seperate forum where you can post your suggestions

when you have a problem with a certain post/thread use the "report post/thread" option (it's actually quite self explanatory when you think about it)
mailing/pm'ing/phoning/IM'ing/sending a fax to one or two of us is an option but will probably not get you anywhere since there should be some kind of concensus on why we as a team agree that a something can or can not be posted
even though this is supposed to be a hobby we need some kind of policy to prevent people from thinking we're just taking sides with our friends / exclude some people etc.


my point is:
if I see one more thread where the entire focus is on someone's posting behaviour instead of the actual topic then I will hunt you down with an axe
