I've been on here a while, but I voted because I'm still relatively new.

Yeah, the arguing's getting to be a bit of a joke. It doesn't really bother me, I just ignore it, but it's so depressing seeing the same guys going at each other/the band/anything literally all the time. It's not even heated debate, some of it's really venomous anger. What's the need? I can state my displeasure for something without getting spiteful. It's refreshing when I find a thread on here that DOESN'T involve a huge row over something, with people just discussing whatever in a friendly and open-minded way.

Also, that medusa person creeps me out. His/her continuous, obsessive posts (particularly in the Queen movie thread) actually make me worry for their state of mind, it's like the ramblings of a psychotic. It's not pleasant to see, especially when people calmly advise against it and only get more obsessive responses.

But from a technical point of view, yeah, the forums are great, and kudos to who ever set them up and maintains them.

I guess I have to say I enjoy posting here. If I didn't, I'd have gone away weeks ago.

And it's reassuring to read this thread, since it reveals that the arguments and mud-throwing existed before I showed up.

Hi! This is my first post!

I've been reading, seen some arguments but that's typical. I saw the same sort of stuff at INXS.com, arguments about the singer, I'm used to it.

I will admit that this new collaboration has re-energized my interest and I am completely obsessed! I'm hoping they do at least one show in the US, preferably Los Angeles as that's where I am.

As you can see by my username my favorite all time Queen song is Killer Queen. 2nd fave, prob Best Friend. I've been a fan since Night At The Opera back in the 70's. Never got to see them live with Freddie as my concert going was limited due to cash flow. If they toured when I had no money I was out of luck.

I was shocked when Freddie died, was not keen on previous collaboration with PR. I do consider myself a fan of Paul Rodgers since the days of Free. Alright Now was the first song I ever dance with a boy to. <3 I effing loved Bad Company.... but didn't feel it was a fit with Queen, despite absolutely adoring Paul's voice and singing style.

Brian is going to speak at a 3D convention near me on 7/28. I'm going to try my hardest to go see him there. I love him so much!! He is a true Renaissance man! I doubt if I'll be able to hug him, tho. :D

Anyway, cheers all!!

Oh I've seen plenty of nasty arguments.

So... erm, is this my welcome? :mrgreen:

I have to say I'm a bit ... maybe intimidated by the apparent majority of UK presence on this board. I don't know if you can tell but I'm trying to be very very good, if not proper, with my English. :P

I am a California girl, so you'll see some improper English and probably some slang that might be unfamiliar to some folks here. :cool: ;)
