I hope you understand that is why I go on about this.. OK Dude.
It's a fun place. So you might be right about me. I'll try to be less talkative in the future..

Hey Slip don't be less talkative-you have a right to say what you want too.
As do I. I didn't take over anything. I made a smart ass comment. 40 lashes for me.

I understand your position, but isn't part of the appeal of a board like this a diversity of opinions? If everyone agreed with everyone on everything, it would be pretty damn boring.

BTW, comments that bash are not SPAM. They're just different opinions.

I've noticed this polarization between people who like Poison, Cinderella, KISS, Journey and bands like that, and people who don't. While I'm part of the latter group, I've seen (and been a part of) a lot of bashing on both sides. I think most of it is in good fun. I personally have never been offended by any of it. However, others seem to be very sensitive to this sort of thing.

The way I see it is that if you don't like Radiohead and I don't like KISS, we can still get along and be friends.

Re: Bret Michaels leading the way to bring ROCK back!

I can't speak for Slip but what I got from this was-If you don't like Poison thats fine,but start your own I hate Poison thread instead of posting in one that wasn't intended for that purpose.

I get my fun in other ways instead of bashing bands I don't like,but to each his own.

Re: Bret Michaels leading the way to bring ROCK back!

Yes Fever... I agree with your position.... everybody knows that I'm not a Poison lover... but do I go and bash them whenever I get the chance? It's not necessary..... like Slipin said... just move on .... it's not necessary to say something for the sake of saying something.

Thats a educated statement. It's not like it's open season on the bands that you most hate. but just a fairly good joust as to what seems to be your personal favorites.
With such a good group of good thinkers here I see it like why waste time finding our differences to talk about. Productivity in a forum like this has helped me to find new bands that I NOW enjoy.
I think this forum has covered all the reasons why we hang out and share groups that are worth a listen.
Well Poison.. Hey. just for a laugh. I'll send anybody on here my personal favorites of them. It makes a Saturday night not so bad.
now don't haze me..

Don't worry -- I won't bash Bret Michaels. I don't believe he will singlehandedly revive rock and roll, but I applaud his spirit and his publicist. I guess he and Poison have parted ways, and he needs to hype up his solo career. And when it comes to hype, nothing works better than overblown hyperbole.

Yeah, like recently when a young newbie asked our advice compiling a killer CD for him and his dad. Most of you helped him out except for one smartass who wrote "That list SUX BIG TIME..."

Now I ask you, is that any way to treat someone who merely asks our help? THAT SUX!!!!!

Well said Slip

Re: Bret Michaels leading the way to bring ROCK back!

Wow can't believe we've got so far here ? I for one was JOKING /Laughing at the comments but it wasn't meant to upset people ? I hear alot of Poison fans complaining..maybe they should make a thread about WHY they like them so much ? There ALOT of threads about bands here..but hardly ever see any REASONS why they LIKE the band ? Whats their best album > Whats their best song? Why is Bret Michaels a good singer ? I don't like Journey ..thats a personal thing(I poke FUN at them) but a few years ago I posted a thread 'Why DOESN'T Journey suck' and alot of yelling happened..BUT alot of imformation ALSO came up into the discussion . For instance, I didn't know that a few of the musicians were in Santana . My opinion is one//LIGHTEN up it's music . two/ it's just opinion ! 3/ open some minds and defend your stance with creditable imformation . Poison isn't my cup of tea..I find the music childlish but I don't hate them. I am staying out of the Styx v/s Journey thread cos i agree about bashing is pointless . And I just giggle at the Poison sucks things {Roser!} ..It's music people !

Re: Bret Michaels leading the way to bring ROCK back!

yeah but many take music very seriously and take it personal when their favs are assaulted.

i take it very seriously but i could really care less if anyone thinks a song or band i like blows. it isnt going to change my view.

but those of us who say who they don't like, usually civilly, i think it is relevent to know not just bands people like but what they don't like as well.

it does show peoples boundaries and tastes and you get an idea what they're into and not into.

perhaps knowing what someone doesn't like is as important as knowing what they do like?

Re: Bret Michaels leading the way to bring ROCK back!

The problem is that a Bret Michaels/Poison thread littered with insults to the music/band doesn't exactly inspired people to discuss the topic - and specifically for newbies who may be used to flaming from other, lesser boards where it's the norm will start thinking that crf2 is just another worthless music forum on the net.

Let's spread some good lovin' and praise the music we like - nobody needs the flaming, least of all the crf2 forum itself. Plenty of that on lesser forums than this.
