Now can we get back to the Olympics or skateboarding rather then let this devolve into some kind hyperbole saturated tirade. If folks want to know why the forum is dying, its because everybody is either so damned serious all the time (myself included) or the opposite, but rarely do we talk about music any more or sonic youth anymore. Is there another SonicYouth forum I can join?
I dont think youre guilty of lowering the tone on here in general actually, there are far worse culprits than you who arent capable of a discussion, hence why i maybe felt it was ok to point it out. And as i sided with Knox when i felt there were stupid things said, i would feel like a bit of a hypocrite if i didnt side with Porky if something stupid is said as well.
Or would you prefer i posted some gratuitous pornography instead?
Edit: And also, i think im arguing with YOU in particular, why do you assume that there are swathes of people being put off posting who all see things the same way as you do?
