People who don't give Rush enough credit yet rave about lesser artisits... on open Rush fan forums ???

'A Farewell To Kings'


Well, tnms is a very broad church, a factor which has kept the site going for 10 years during the fallow periods of Rush inactivity. Last time I looked there was nothing in the rules that stipulated you had to park your critical faculties or personal tastes at the door before entering.

Once again Ian this isn't the topic section to be discussing this sort of stuff!
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Who called in the thought police then?

This sort of stuff Richard?

Its an open Rush fan forum, yes?

And yet here we find apparently dedicated Rush detractors trying to persuade us that some other musos are so perfect on the 'Upset Of The Day' thread (I take it that's what the Upset Of The Day' thread is for in your opinion judging from your lack of comment in that respect?) of a Rush fan site? Well its bound to mildly 'upset' some people surely (you know... Rush fans and that) and cause a little reaction perhaps?

So where else would you suggest to voice such 'upset' (I use the term lightly of course) Richard?

Anything Rush related is fair game on any thread of a Rush fan website surely, no?.

You'll be telling me next that I can't suggest Geddy Lee for England manager on the sports section next! ::)

Talk about taking things a little too seriously! :P (Hope your blister is feeling better today btw! ;D).

Shoulod be annoyance, pehaps.  If it upsets you, then you must be a right girly.
Anger is a gift.

Maybe in the Vapour Trails section which is specifically for Rush chat...

Might have looked a bit 'disembodied' over there though Richy boy. However I did find a suitable section on the Frank Spencer Society forum entitled 'Your Rush Based Annoyances'... ooops! should I have posted this comment in the 'Bizarre Rush Sightings' thread then? ??? :P

I perhaps need to brush up on my sarcasm/TIC writing technique BPM... I thought my post smacked of it! ;D

Anyhows... I thought that 'silly' was the point of these forum thangs? :P Its certainly another well held tradition I've seen on most of them I've read through!

Richy boy!!??

Ok, I'll bite!  >:(

What is your problem!? If you look back on this place you find that this thread is generally in a serious vein, the more light-hearted stuff going in the annoyance thread, and I'm furious that I find myself having a slanging match with you about things that may or may not be connected with Rush (in the General Chat section) in a thread where a few days ago I posted about a relative getting cancer!

Time and place!

Totally agree with your sentiment Richard.

Ian, please try to remain on topic and in the appropriate thread.  Makes things easier for everyone to find and follow.

Ok Richard, I see your point now that you've explained your stance. No offence meant of course and this is maybe one of the dangers of starting threads like this one... unfortunately you're broadcasting very personal, sensitive and intimate information out on an open forum to complete strangers, literally to the world, most of whom, as harsh or uncaring as it seems, read such posts and then pretty much forget all about them pretty swiftly... as one might read something sad in a newspaper for instance... 'shake our heads at the tradegy' and then 'turn the page'. Certainly the case here and I'm sure for all involved in this particular thread hijack.

I can't help feeling that for such personal issues the use of the PM system might be better for sharing such intimate things and receiving condolances from people who you know on the site.

I sincerely hope things turn out for the better with your relative.

I shall try as much as possible to be more aware in future.
