    www.readingfestival.com (.co.uk?)

    has the lineup and everything there, but its not the best designed site coz the whole thing is on one page and you have to scroll up with these little buttons and its so annoying.

    i thought city_boy had made a comeback for a minute, till i noticed that was 2 months ago <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">; *waves if you're still out there*

    OMG! Do I sniff the sour odour of HYPOCRICY?!!!

    I cannot believe this shit!

    I get f*ckin howled at for draggin up an old post that doesn't suit u but this one is ok I guess.

    OK, that's alright then.

    DOUBLE STANDARDS!!!!!!!!!

    I'm outta here!

    Sorry to be rude peeps but, if u cannot see how f*cked up these boards have become, then I don't wanna be part of it.

    This aint the democratic place it used to be!

    Didn't you know Mel? The clique have set up their own terms & conditions...Only you have no choice. YOU MUST STICK BY THEM.

    The rules are as follows:
    1. Every newbie MUST introduce themselves
    2. Do not bring up dead topics over a week old because....hmmmmmm....why?
    3. The only bands you can talk about are Muse, Ash, Feeder, My Vitriol, Stereophonics & Greenday.
    4. If the clique don't like you then you have to leave these boards

    I'm sure there will be more...if not then they will make some up. I can't remember agreeing to any of these T&C's when I signed up. Can anyone else?

    What is the problem with bringing up old posts? You get to see what other people said before so the advice or opinion isn't repeated. The clique need to get their act together cause you've driven out valuble members i.e Gwai, Luka, J9J9 and countless newbies.




    The world will end in 5 minutes. Please log out...

    er gwai i think you'll find you were never howled at. i just did the "dude. post. dead" thing which seems to have become the way of telling ppl its a dead post without causing too much offence.

    okay theres a difference. reading festival is an actual event that hasnt happened yet, it isnt happening for another coupla months. so posts about it id consider to be ongoing, wouldnt that make sense? even though there are more recent ones it woulda made more sense to drag up... but hey. the main reason i posted in this topic, apart from coz it was something i was interested in, was because i saw youd posted again gwai which you hadnt done for a while. and i hadnt got as far as the other topics you started, so i thought id welcome you back. is that so bad?!

    yes i CAN see that the boards have changed. you've come back at a bit of an odd time when things are going a bit haywire <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; happens from time to time.

    mark would it hurt to stop being such an obsequious sycophant just once in a while? there is no "clique". thats in your head. i think you might be thinking of myself and turtle who happen to think the same about some stuff and be friends (common interests and all) and who arent afraid to say what we think. i know of no clique thats for sure. yes there are friendships.. but what do you suggest, that everyone doesnt communicate outside of the boards? well clearly not, coz i know you for one have made friends.. etc.. off this board.

    the newbie thing, its just polite for someone to say hello and just a few words, no one said they wanted a life history, we appreciate the anonymity the site provides and im sure everyone wants to keep it that way.

    dead post thing - fairly self explanatory really. if its something specific to one perosn, and then someone comes along and posts a solitary reply months later, whats the point? its irritating if you come here regularly. if its something general then it doesnt matter so much, like something about.. i dunno, the jamie bulger case for example, as THATS still going on, and theres an old topic there too (one i cant read coicnidentally, damn IE..) if its someone adding something on to a relationship post and they want answers... well it makes sense to post a new topic. and if you'll notice, the moderators have been saying the same thing lately, i saw karla doing it <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; so its not "the clique" im afraid.

    point 3 - sorry thats a load of bollocks. yes they are some of the bands that i, and turtle like... i get the feeling you're looking at this from a waaaay skewed angle, and just picking up on the things me and turtle talk about, which you seem not to like for some reason.

    you can post about any band you like, its ridiculous to suggest you couldnt. the thing i think you're referring to was, i think, you in some way trying to make out that the music you listen to is the only good type of music and the rest is crap. THATS what people dont like and get pissed off about. no doubt you'll correct me if i get that even slightly wrong...

    point 4...aside from there BEING no clique... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif">; its to do with the attitude of posters, if they try and force their beliefs on you, make out your opinions are worthless, slag off people the scond they start posting, that kinda thing. thats the only sort of people i can think of right now that arent welcome here. oh and perverts and fascists.

    mark i think you're slightly fixated on the old "core" group of regulars, that invluded you, gwai, j9 and luka, and many others probably too. for a long time, THIS seemed like "the clique" to me, and probably many others. im not denying that any of the people ive mentioned havent been good for thesite, and they have all made posts that have helped people, countless times. but things change, people move on. you cant keep hanging on to the past, you have to accept that people will leave and new people will join and form new friendships and alliances. its just the way of the world and im sorry if you cant accept that.

    these boards are self regulating a lot of the time, like i said yesterday, moderators dont have time to come along and sort out every petty squabble, that isnt their job.

    to me it seems like you're actually trying to drive people apart and wind them up more and cause more friction mark.

    N.B. this post isnt trying to cause arguments, unlike the previous 2 (no doubt more will have appeared since last time and ill look stupid but hey!)

    Muse aren't gonna be there are they? Bugger. I'm going but manics should be good if they drop half of their new stuff from the set and play the whole of the Holy Bible and possibly GT.
    Anyone gonna get stuck in when MManson getson...should be mad!!
    And you have to endure the trash that is papa eoach, and on friday head straight for the Radio1 tent because you'll fall asleep if u go to the main stage!! Travis, Greenday, *yawns*

    I've always wonderd why people would want to go to a festival about reading. Do you just sit around and talk about books then?

    ditto to what you said to tourette turtle, i said kinda similar in the music topic, and of course that was further down the list, so older, but i dont think about that when i do these things <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">; and i so called you a hypocrite too <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;

    the only good bands at reading this year are system of a down, hed (pe) and rancid the rest is shit. £80 for 3 good bands what a rip off, and reading always used 2 be so good. when i saw nirvana, soundgarden, sonic youth and dinosaur jr there then it was cool but no its just commercial trendy bull shit.
