Sure, but again, why not just say Stevie?

I have a feeling the idea of not name calling for a day is an impossibility here after all

Nice idea, though.

In the UK car fanatics are called Petrolheads. Its not offensive (I guess you'd call them Motorheads in the US).

Tech geeks are, I think Tech heads and radio fans are... er, radio heads????

And the original and most famous I’d say is The Greatful Dead’s “Deadheads”

Well, not exactly.

Yes, because in this statement you are name-calling the people who are fans of one particular band member. So that is, in fact, name calling.


I said "Lindsey was fired because $tevie wanted Mike to replace him," again, there's a bias

Actually, there's no name calling or insulting in that statement towards any other fans at all. It's merely an OPINION about what actions were taken by band members.

And, maybe this is where some people are having a problem.

Just because someone is offering an opinion about what they think happened within the band, or in a lot of cases, are citing actual statements about what happened made by people who were a lot closer to the action, those are NOT "insults". If someone wants to say Mick is a this or that or Stevie is a diva or Lindsey is a brat, or whatever... THAT IS NOT AN INSULT to anyone on this board for pete's sake. It's someone's opinion, and in some cases a comment based on a statement we have high confidence is actually true about what went on. You can disagree, and offer an alternative perspective, but if someone wants to insult Stevie, or Lindsey for that matter, or Mick, NO ONE in this forum should somehow take that as an insult to THEMSELVES. Someone hating on a band member is NOT an attack on other fans. Unless they actually insult another fan.

People need to stop being so personally offended when someone doesn't like their favorite band member, or when someone proposes a theory they don't like, or when people are talking about a topic you aren't interested in or are tired of discussing.

Same here.

Again, some people on here get all sensitive when someone says something about a band member as if somehow it was being said about THEM.

You are right, I misspoke (or miswrote, rather); a more appropriate example would have been, instead of saying $tevie, I had referred to Stevie superfans as "children of Stevie." It would be an insult to fans to refer to them as either "children of Stevie" or "children of Lindsey," don't you think? The implication is they can't think for themselves.

I agree with everything you said, I just wanted to clear up what I meant.

BellaSoprano sincere condolences on your loss. You spoke truth in your statement. Everyone was shocked on hearing of Lindsey's departure from the band. But the hate and vitriol that is being posted day in and day out is overkill. But I also believe he will be ok and that he was not happy having to do these tours without new music. He thrives on creating music and gets bored with the same tired set list.

Even though there is no new music on this tour they are mixing up the set list with Pre-Rumours songs and Heartbreaker's music also. That makes this tour exciting to see what the two new member's bring to FM original songs and the mix of TP band's songs.

DH and I are being gifted tickets to see them in October in Cleveland, Oh. We are so excited! This band has had many incarnations over the decades, great music always. We will continue to support FM and all previous band members as they are all great artists in their own right.

As long as we're all squaring off into factions, is there a board here for Trump supporters registered in the Modern Whig Party who like Fleetwood Mac but only the drug years only that's not totally true either because Seeds We Sow was pretty good and In Your Dreams had a couple of excellent tracks and I've taken a very recent liking to mustard greens?
