It really is a battleground of who can be the most negative, and if you dont like that, why are you a member here? Maybe it wasn't always like this, but it is now. If you hate the people, hate the discussions, hate the community, why not just leave quietly?
instead of telling the people that are simply using the forum for its purpose (to discuss the Dave Matthews Band) to leave, which is done in almost every thread.....why don't the people that have a problem with somebody saying something negative about the band leave? People act like there is a rule that you can't complain about the band, an album, a show, a setlist, a song, etc...i've always found that strange.
And inevitably, a handful of people are going to say "Well if you hate what the band is doing these days, and you rip on the band on a fan site, why do you even come? What's the point?" The point is, for me anyways, I sill care. DMB is still my favorite band, of all time. It is a site for fans, and I am a fan, it's simple.
