  1. And...? Ziggy Stardust is a metaphor for how Bowie's saw his own career. The character he got famous playing guitar, his ego grew, he started playing weird shit, alienated his old fanbase and his band broke up. It has nothing at all to do with the fantasy stuff that Maiden play. metaphor or not its no different than talking about the things maiden talks about. space aliens and all that is ok but boy better not talk about horror movies or the human race destroying each other is so not cool and we will act like cunts to you for doing that. Yeah but it's also completely different. Maiden's lyrics are a lot more literal than Bowie's; with his songs he's not singing about aliens (I assume you're talking about Space Oddity?) in the same way Maiden are literally singing about dwarves and shit.

  3. thats fucked up. fernando acts all butthurt and comes off as a little bitch gets called out on it for what it was yet you get the suspension. in all honesty i dont see what you said as that big of a deal but it seems mygnr is going back down that road of kissing the ass of TB unfortunately. This. I get a suspension and a million PM's from downzy telling me how awful I was and now a wall of text from HV because I said IF Fernando was going to come in with all the hatred shit he could fuck off? Are you guys collectively off your meds? Oh, the all-important IF. My bad, carry on.
  4. It's the worst. This kind of shit was half the reason I lost all my energy and interest in running a community.
  5. That's pretty harsh maeng. I would have removed your post too if I had been in the chair. Facekicker's post is still there, and yours probably would have been too if you'd left the "fuck off" out of it. I agree that Fernando's post was a total cop-out and you could have easily made that point without the insult, but you threw it in there anyway. Maybe you were looking to gain a bit of cred back.... maybe you really did feel it was necessary... I don't really know, I just know that if I were a mod/admin, I would have done the same thing. This isn't exactly the first time it's been said that personal attacks aren't tolerated anymore. You had a great opportunity to let Fernando know what a shitty comment he'd made and you went too far with it. I'm probably a bit biased because I have been in downzy's position and I sympathise with it.... but honestly, he's never given me the impression that he is in this for personal gain. There were plenty of people that used to accuse me of exactly the same thing you're accusing him of, and it used to frustrate the hell out of me because that was never the point. An open dialogue between management and fans isn't about fucking party passes, it's about getting better access to information for fans if and when it's available. So cut the guy some slack, surely you can appreciate that he's trying his best in a difficult position? This would all be a lot easier if Fernando had shown up in a few month's time with his "actual" news, instead of showing up early with a bunch of seemingly empty promises and good intentions that will likely never come to fruition. Downzy didn't pick the timing but he's stuck trying to find some kind of balance in a complex situation. He doesn't have a map or a manual, he's making calls as he goes and hoping he's getting it right. You know yourself how hard moderating can be - so maybe jump off your own dick for a sec and appreciate that you might actually be somewhat at fault here too.
  6. I just find this situation particularly hilarious on the back of this post: He is so completely full of shit, it beggars belief. Having said that; it's a shame in that it gives him more ammunition to keep playing the victim card.
  7. That was delicious. The video was sick too. Awesome work on the outro AxlIsOld, I didn't have the balls to attempt the whole thing!
  8. I said I don't care about being a member on a gnr forum or wfse. I then asked you to delete my account and all my posts.
  9. What I saw was you saying you didn't care three times. I'll happily delete your account now that I know that you do care.
  10. You said you didn't care? Everyone has the right to have their account deleted.
  11. 5 stars too. As a young mod I consider you one of my biggest influences.
