Just so I have it straight... because you disagree with his particular opinion means he's an idiot?

Should I apply that logic whenever I disagree with someone too?
You don't even have it kind of straight. Not even close to what I am saying.

hahahaha my favorite part is someone complaining about a 14 song set being too long. do you even like live music? I just saw Thrice play 18 and that is way too short for a band like them. they should be doing AT LEAST 25, if not more every night to accommodate their massive catalog of songs.

and I saw the TDS tour where they played that "long" set, the entire crowd was into it the entire time yelling for an encore as soon as the "last" song was done. short sets are great for openers, headliners need to play loooooong sets.

Then feel free to start a business and think of people however you want. I'll continue to use the forums as forums, and judge people by the quality of their words. Not pretend their shit is gold just because they visit.

I've built my entire reputation around honesty. That's what's important to me. If people don't like it - they have all the freedom in the world to not read what I write. But I sleep better at night, and respect myself more ... knowing I'm true to myself in what I do. I wouldn't be doing this for over 10 years if I had to be fake. And people wouldn't trust me if they thought I was just blowing smoke up their ass so as not go step on any toes.

Saying he thought TDS were boring live is different than declaring them boring and a bad fit on a tour. That's the difference. He can think they're boring all he wants. Don't care at all. Pretending that his views are universal - in light of overwhelming evidence to the contrary - is what I have issue with.

IE: it appears to be trolling.

I love being lectured about "talking down to someone" by being talked down to ...
I can dig that, and I get it. but why can't you be nicer about it? what does calling anyone an idiot get for you? even beyond this being your website, i'm saying on just a person to person level. like listen man, i've been here like 6 years now, i honestly like the way you do things, that's why i've stuck around. i just don't see why you have to insult people like that, it's completely unnecessary, and you're obviously smarter than that.

i'm not talking down to you at all. i'm just saying, as some of the older people here, let's not call names.

followed by completely random racist remarks, then some guy with like 500 thumbs up just for posting the lyrics (probably got them wrong too), and then the obligatory post of some young kid going "i'm 12 and i listen to this". yeah, things could be WAYYYYYYY worse.

All that would then be topped off by a hilariously sarcastic "Design the Skyline should be on this tour!!"

For the most part, because I'm not traditionally "nice." I don't hold hands and sing songs around campfires. I'm brash, opinionated, and short with words. That's who I am. I'm not in the business of faking.

If someone is an idiot - I have no problem saying it. That shit about the band ruining the tour, dooming the tour by not fitting in, yadayadayada. Is idiotic. His comments were meant to incite - so I responded in kind.

well, if that's your stance then I believe we're all set here. good talk, jason.

keep up the good work with all the actual stuff you do, and I wish you continued success for decades to come.
