That’s not why Homer said “shut it”.

To be fair, I pretty much disagree with everything you have to say bwboy, hahaha....!!!!
But you are entitled to your opinion and by all means contribute what you think, I won't result to name calling or dirty tactics because we don't agree.
Thanks Angel75 And I really mean that! And if I fall in that trap of being insulting or offensive as I have in the past, please call me on it.

He told Sugar Mouse to shut up because they hadn't been on the board a month yet. Not sure why that would make it ok, and it doesn't matter why he said it, it wasn't necessary and it's not ok. If I'm a bully for saying he shouldn't have said it LOL then I'll wear that badge no problem.

Mick always stays true to form..He will say or do just about anything for $$$. One of the greediest and most money grubbing characters in rock history.

Thank you for your comments.

Poking the bear means making comments intended to annoy someone, over and over. If someone who is upset over this scenario wants to see the band, and makes comments to that effect.......that's not poking the bear.

I do agree that Sugar Mouse is polite, but it's a really passive aggressive way of shoving Neil Finn down my throat every time I read any posts of his/hers. I'm tired of reading how good this is going to be, I don't agree with that, and I avoid any and all threads relating to Neil Finn, CH, TP/MC. And I certainly don't spend my time trying to convince SugarMouse that my point of view is correct. So when he/she turns up in every thread trying to make me see his/her side of the coin, then gets offended when someone is tired of that point of view, I think he/she needs to own a bit of it. No one here would tell someone to "shut up" unless they had reached the point of poking the bear one too many times.

Any conflict is usually a two way street. So don't call foul when you poke the bear and get some push back.

Ugh, I've really tried to stay out of this but I'll just leave this here (not that it matters since I'm not a mod):

I agree that a newbie gushing all about Neil Finn, posting videos of his performances, and repeatedly parroting the 'official narrative' for Lindsey's dismissal in the Rumours forum seems deliberately provocative.

Normally, I'd otherwise agree that telling another member to 'shut up' crosses a line. As it stands, I'd just as soon ignore arguments between members and intend to do so moving forward.

Thank you. I broke NO RULES, but was being "threatened" with a spanking. If you don't know the rules, you probably shouldn't speak. Is that a nicer way of saying it?

I think someone has "a thing" for me.

With all the coke snorted and booze guzzled by this shyster and for years on end I would be shocked if he made it past 80.

Yeah I was being pretty generous with 20 years

It still surprises the hell out of me that MF and SN are seemingly fit and healthy after all those years of coke and booze....maybe only the good die young?!

Lol what, were people expecting him to say yes? Tell the people from TMZ that it's all true and that's exactly what happened?

However, the moderators have said that it’s perfectly acceptable to post about the new lineup in this forum. You don’t have to like it, but that’s not breaking any rule.

No more ridiculous than speculating that it was all Stevie’s doing.
