    If you are unhappy with a post you read we have a report function specifically to avoid these sort of arguments and personal insults from happening. Resorting to personal flaming is not the answer. There are plenty of people resorting to such actions in this thread, and its frankly becoming childish and silly. Had comments been reported they could have been dealt with, without resorting to removing half the posts in this thread.

    If you wish to question my actions or have something to say you are welcome to PM me where we can discuss the matter properly.

    Lets put this in perspective though; this forum is considerably more friendly than many other forums out there. We seem to only run into trouble when people feel their egos are being stepped on, and thats something we'll never be able to avoid. I'd much rather let threads take their natural route and not intervene, but sometimes its just unavoidable.

    You are welcome to PM me if you wish to continue discussing this Superpeter, but I have asked several times now to keep on topic and I kindly ask you to keep to that please, so lets leave it there, or take it to PM where you can voice your concerns freely.

    Leeky as always, you are free to remove as much of my material as you feel appropriate.

    If that deprives me of the last word, so be it. It should take away the argument for continuance of an issue. Yet, if a post is removed because it is deemed offensive, that must, of necessity, also remove the provocation and reply.

    So, I'm as good with those outcomes, as any other.

    I'm well entitled to that opinion, under the First Amendment of the US Constitution. The above quoted paragraph not only answers the direct question asked by the thread topic, it gives basis for my opinions. Accordingly, it meets forum guidelines.

    I'm not actually arguing "musical taste" as I've been accused. I can't abide opera, yet as far as I'm concerned, if an individual so chooses, it can be listened to from dawn to drop, at any volume they desire. Much of modern jazz is inaccessible to me as well. It doesn't have a malicious point or purpose, so knock yourself out with that also.

    The problem arises here when people attempt to inflict their opinion on me. It's your opinion, please keep it. There isn't a force or fear that will make it my opinion..

    Rap music in its most severe forms, is all about shouting other people down. That doesn't really fly on paper.
    The above quoted partial paragraph is fact, not my opinion, so it's difficult to understand why I should be censored about, or challenged on, that either.

    My favorite bands are Between the Buried and Me, Animals As Leaders (virtuoso guitarist, who is ... black), August Burns Red, and Texas in July. I will listen to pretty much anything except for today's country. It's just so, blah. Love Lady Gaga... and her support for the LGTB community.

    Uhmmmm, mainly stream with Pandora or Youtube.
     
  4. Instrumental music aaand Pink Floyd! :D
    I'm definitely on the same boat... I really like Incubus, especially the 4 movements they recorded for the soundtrack of Halo 2. I think I downloaded a torrent of that. I also listen to a lot of jazz like John Zorn and Chris Potter... I usually buy their CD's though, or get them at iTunes.
    However (if you like instrumental music and Pink Floyd), you MUST listen to this band... they're from Mexico.
    They're called La Especialidad de la Casa you can download their first album here:

    nodata.tv is also a pretty fine site to download new music, a lot of nice independent bands!
    Cheers! :)
