All of this shit is retarded. The fact that people care EITHER WAY is sad. With all due respect to those bitching and at the risk of being more hated that I already am, get a fucking life. It's a post count on a band's message board. If that the worst of your problems I seriously envy your life. I (along with most people here, no doubt) have bigger problems in my life. We have bills, we have a failing economy, we have friends and family getting shot at in the Middle East in a war started on a fucking lie.
I know we all bitch about stupid senseless shit on here, but the fact that this has created such a to-do is stupid. We all post here for our shared love of a certain band. If you meet people herein who you decide to make friends with, more power to you. Maybe some of those conversations that aren't related to the reason ALL of us are here would be better made somewhere else. Or maybe not. But at the end of the day, who gives a fuck? Just quit bitching about it. You are not entitled to anything. You're not entitled to any forums, to a post count, to a New Years Eve Show, to five night of a throwdown, to openers that you love, to a venue that you enjoy, to announcements made on your time, to a message board at all OR ANYTHING. This is a place of a mutual love for a band. That's why most of us are here. We're all on the same team and shit like a post count or a certain threads being closed aren't a big deal. So let's all drop it before the band decides to close the board entirely.
