Of course, isn't not replying to people who are who are speaking directly to you considered rude?

If someone quotes what you said and adds comments then I assume that is an attempt to engage in dialogue.

Don't you?

Probably.

They fly under the radar a bit, never even thought of them, but they are pretty huge.

:?

Really?

As I said, if people write to me directly or quote me I take that as an indication that they wish to engage in dialogue, I don't see how else you could take it.

There's not set of concrete rules in BCB cope, c'mon you know that.

Depends on your definition of 'dialogue'. If that includes slanging matches and competing shouty monologues, then fair enough; another possibility that occurs to me is that they want to shut you up, but as anyone who has been on here five minutes will testify, you actually enjoy a ruck and are encouraged by oppostion.

Nothing personal here, Copey. As you know, I actually agree with you about quite a lot of things (apart from the Manics, which is why I haven't posted on this thread :) , and Bugry), but the suggestion that the polite rules of reasoned debate have any place in this nest of sister boys is a little disingenuous, no?

You'd think others would have got that idea as well.

The best way to get someone to shut up is to ignore them and not engage with them surely, works with me.

:( I thought we agreed on Bugry as well, it is OK as long as both parties give informed consent.

I like it that debate can get heated as you may have guessed.

I have been looking forward to this thread for weeks because I knew it would provoke the usual people into some extreme responses and I could have a laugh.

I still don't really understand why the Manics produce more extreme responses than say Muse, but they do and that makes it interesting to discuss them.

As usual me and Prof are right.

I've (up to now) studiously ignored your ridiculous statements all the way through this thread, yet you're still prattling on...

Is there a second-best way I can try???

I actually think JDB is one of the most underrated music writers in Britain to be honest. Some of the manic’s music has been cach, really cach, but there’s a lot more brilliant stuff than shite. JDB has a safezone when it comes to guitar playing which he rarely moves from but it’s still better than some of the shite around now or when they first started out to their hayday after holy bible and everything must go.

You seem to have mistaken what you say about the Manic Street Preachers with the Manic Street Preachers. They are a pretty pedestrian second-division plodrock outfit who no-one really particularly has any strong feelings about. The silly things you say about them, however, do provoke responses.

And your idea of "interesting" matches your boofer-loofer kitschmensch idea of what constitutes decent music.
Good.

Well said Markus, this thread is really separating the BCB men from the BCB boys.

Frankly that is rubbish. It doesn't even mean anything.

I laid out a fairly innocuous case for them and let the vitriol flow.

8 pages now.

A thread on Muse would garner one page, generally favourable.

For some reason people seem compelled to share their hatred of MSP in great detail., it is fascinating.

They are a pretty pedestrian second-division plodrock outfit who no-one really particularly has any strong feelings about.


:lol:

Like most people who hate them you appear to have heard very little of their music.

And this very thread shows your point to be risible.

You seem to have made a BCB career out of being spectacularly and comically wrong in just about everything you write, good to see you aren't having an off day here.

Who writes a post on page 8 of a thread saying no one is interested in the thread, you are a hoot.


The silly things you say about them, however, do provoke responses.


Basically all I said is I really like the Manics, the judgement that this is silly and the undeniable compulsion to comment on that is all yours.

And your idea of "interesting" matches your boofer-loofer kitschmensch idea of what constitutes decent music.


Thank you, I think you have all the musical taste of a ten year old dish rag as well.
