I agree it's annoying. I'm just saying it seems to be an internet-wide problem rather than something specific to this place. I'm not really sure what can be done about it.

To be fair if there is any bullying it's usually done to people who'll say something like 'shut the **** up you don't know what you're talking about you ****ing idiot' rather than 'I see your point I just don't agree with it'.

I listen to plenty of bands that would be considered crap or uncool by the majority of people on the forum. I was never given **** for it not even as a noob.
Why was that?
Maybe because I gave as good as I got and never resorted to name calling.

30 people criticising my taste in music?

Did you miss three or am I just TOTALLY missing it?
So here's to living life miserable.

There is a small number of us on here who regularly trade through PM's because we love the thrill of hearing new music. Sometimes the recommendations don't work but what the hell. Music should be about taking yourself out of your comfort zone and trying to immerse yourself in as many different sounds and genres as possible. I am not asking you to like them. Just try them and maybe you will find a whole unexplored avenue of music that reaffirms that passion for music.

I am not for once suggesting that we all get on our knees and fellate every new thread on here but damn is'nt it about time some of you started chucking some names at the more mature of us who are not in the loop?

Is it a lack of confidence at getting shot down if your recommendation does'nt currie favour with all? Fuck that. Post away.

Never ever be satisfied with what's sitting in your music collection. There is literally millions of albums out there waiting to be discovered. Go find them FFS.
I'm guilty of this, but there's already so much I haven't heard already stored on my harddrive, it's tough.

3. Musicbanter's Scope

This could seem as a very odd choice to many but bear with me. One of MB'S strengths is also it's weaknesses. Because MB is'nt genre specific, I have noticed many people join to talk about Metal or Reggae but leave fairly quickly because they don't get many replies as the most of the fans who really know their stuff are on other forums that deal exclusively with those genres.

Metalheads rarely hang around these forums for too long as the same old threads/arguments pop up and they would rather be on a forum where there are more like minded people etc. Same for Reggae/Electronica etc. Not always but this forum is catered for those with wide ranging and eclectic tastes and unfortunately there are less of us than there are genre specific fans.

I really don't know what we can do to change this but I am regularly disappointed when new members join and then leave within a few weeks due to lack of response. I could take the mindset that it is no great shakes and that they should'nt be so narrow minded but some people just love one genre only and I would love to benefit from someone who can recommend me some good music for once.

I kind of feel guilty for flaunting my tastes all over the forum but I like to gee up things and lament the lack of new members sometimes.

When I came to MB all I listened to was Sum 41-esque bands and look at me now.
If it wasn't for all the eclectic member's I probably wouldn't have stayed.
