I think we all listen to a lot that we don't post about. Anyways what sucks is the lack of forum participation in the classic rock/psych and prog battle of the bands happening right now in the classic rock/prog and psychedelic sub-forum!

/shameless plug.

I'm pretty in love with Adrian Orange, Karl Blau, The Halo Benders, etc, etc, name drop, name drop. Why would I make a thread on every band I like? I'm pretty sure most people hold back on most of the stuff they like different from everyone and just focus on posting on stuff they have in common. Music is too broad of a subject. If you go to more genre/label oriented boards that's where you find a good healthy discussion on more obscure bands.

Or when people just assume, and bash a certain band (could be any) and really don't stop to think about how hard it really is to actually write a decent song. If they're so upset about bands lacking innovations, I've got 7 guitars, 2 basseseses, banjo, mandolin, and two drum kits, they are free to record some songs here any time they feel the need to complain the artists out there now.

Only people who make good music are in a place to call music bad?

Nope. People who try, people who put forth the same amount of energy as any band. Mainstream or indie. I have respect for basically any and every band I ever saw pouring buckets of sweat to an empty audience, who recorded it all in their own house because they never had the money for studio time, for the bands who spend time after the shows talking to fans because they really do mean something to them. I just don't like people whining about things they too, can achieve. It's silly. As for mainstream bands, good for them. I don't much care for most of the material, but they obviously worked hard enough to get themselves where they are. Their time will rise and fall, that's just the way it is, but they did it. That's what matters.

Being a musician obviously puts music in a different perspective. I just don't think that not being one makes your opinions void (which you cleared up in your last comment that that's probably not what were implying). Someone who doesn't play music probably doesn't have much room to speak on the originality of a band unless they're a total rip off.
