I think BOT has a good point there, you can clearly see on this forum that many of the posters are friends and will gang up on, say a poster like me because they are friends and I am not, simple as.
I hate to be bringing Reborn up again but its the handiest example I can think of on here.
You can see in the review on here of their demo and the comments below, that clearly people don't want to say bad things about the music because of friendship or just wanting to stay "in" with the lads but its easy to read between the lines that they know its a slack generic recording with a few bob thrown at it and don't want to be seen to put the music down especially on MI and they will use words that are rather gentle. Where as I on the other hand would be an unknown poster and will say it as I see it. I'm not on a smear campaign against the bands I've mentioned, I just see them as terrible and point out why. I don't think to myself "ah they are nice lads I'll encourage them" I'm just saying, stop wasting your money lads, its clear to me the music is going nowhere.(Now I know theres been some slagging etc but if somebody wants to use words about the place like "after birth" etc ya, I'm gonna slag back, shur its all the crack)
The fact that people mention Smaug alongside Ancikrist alot, backs up my argument that the friends on here are on one side and the posters they don't like ie Smaug and Ancikrist are bundled together as "them". I have absolutely
nothing in common with Ancikrist, yet I have noticed if he says something on here, some of the slower posters will automatically get so confused they will think what he said is what I said, in effect if he was trowing some rightwing views around the place they will even think I posted them, which in fact is almost impossible to believe but its true.
Furthermore I had never even heard of Mensa before it was mentioned in the 'Racist Scum" thread TBh I had to google it, meh who gives a fuck about those people? Also the BM he speaks of on here would not be my bag. I find his posts incredible and never engage or support his posts. When I say most of the metal I listen to is BM, I'm not saying I'm Necro or whatever, its just BM is my preference when it comes to metal music but metal music would only be about 30 to 40% of the music I listen to. I listen to Bowie, Floyd, Doors DCD and all that shit too, now how necro is that?
Other posters like Eoin Mc and Snatchgrabber etc need to be mentioned here they just want to seem witty and smart at the expence of the OP or other posters but really they are just bladdering bullshit as far as I'm concerned and have become rather dull and predictable . I've lurked here for awhile before I signed up so I knew what to expect when I posted my first thread as Smaug. Eoin Mc for example would contribute a well thought out post like "Who cares?" on my thread and then some time latter post in the "Racist Scum" thread, directed at Smaug.
"why are you here? You have contributed nothing to the site bar to this thread. Are you into metal or just here for the wind-up?"
Snatchgrabber would make a comment such as to imply I know nothing about the business of metal music where in fact I'm 100% convinced he to be perhaps 100% wrong.
Regarding the thread title I guess you could say I'm into metal but I'm outside the click, well the MI click anyhow.
