Right, because offering an opinion about written, recorded, promoted, and released music is completely the same thing. Took literally one post to just create a straw man and attempt to derail. Shocking.
I'm not attempting to derail shit - I'd like to know what the difference is. Other publications are offering their opinions on whether bands should break up or go on hiatus, and this rubs you the wrong way - a band within the scene you promote (or at least one of the scenes) gets routinely shit on, on the front page no less, but this doesn't rub you the wrong way at all.
One is an opinion, the other is something that could actually effect who chooses to check out a band that's out there doing their thing.
Just rubs me the wrong way, s'all. I thought that's what this thread was for
, bitching about shitty things that 'journalists' say about the scenes they cover? My bad.
