I'm of the opinion that if you say something ignorant, you'd best be prepared for the consequences.

I used common sense when I first got here and nobody ever jumped on me. It's not difficult.

I know of forums where people like to haze new members. Also, what I'm discussing is no "perk," but the regular contributors set the tone. If they come across negatively to new people, then participation will suffer.

I too have been a member of communities that haze members, to the point where the administration once interfered with the absolute thrashing of someone.

This forum is not even close to that. Not even. We're very good here, we just don't swallow closed-mindedness well.

I think the regular contributors do set the tone here and the tone is this: It's a place to discuss music. Not everyone is going to agree with everyone else all the time, but that's part of fun, not something to be offended by. We banter about music here. It's right in the name.

Sooner or later, music will return back to its roots that once made music so unique.

How? Will all the bands that made it what it is today just suddenly seize to exist?

KI, I was talking music in general. I was not pacific. I am not saying all today's music sucks but a good chunk do stink but underground music is pretty unique though. I am saying as a music as a whole will soon get better. Just not now.

There was no tag team with the comment. Or else I would have directed it to the poster. It was just a coincidence that a few posts had the same idea to what I'd posted. It's not uncommon that posters have a similar idea especially if it makes sense on a specific subject.

I said months ago that that's not my definition of "banter." If the regular members' standard idea of "fun" here isn't fun to others, then this is what we get, few dedicated new members. Some of the others probably think the atmosphere is deliberately hostile, and a few of the most visible usernames fuel that perception. No one is going to quickly, magically change a "close-minded" new member's opinion via criticism. Nobody here can change the facts that some other forums are nasty and that many music fans have thin skins. If nobody here wants to behave differently, then nothing is likely to change. Except me - the atmosphere is eroding my interest in starting new threads.
