My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

Controversy, opinions and censoring process

Remarks, suggestions for improvements and questions about the web forum.

Well, well. I wanted to ask some simple questions, without involving useless polemical aspects:

Can we talk about what we think of being bad as well as what we mention as good ? Is it still possible on the official forum of a band to make well-constructed critics about the band or the label ?

I'm obviously not talking of silly stuff like: "This is shit etc...", I'm talking of something constructed with good arguments, that could be wrong but which are correctly and politely put in.

Is it still possible to give your own opinion with any censoring process ?

Thanks for the answer(s) I will get.

Of course it is. Just be mindful that the people whose work you are criticizing read what you write and can quite easily take what you write personally (it's their music you're talking about).

If your criticism is well-constructed or at least not just insults and a lot of "It sucks! I hates it!" then it is welcome.

I don't want a public discussion on what is and is not censorship here. Just keep in mind that this forum is part of the official site and as such anyone here is a guest of me and of the band. You are welcome to voice your opinion, just as long as you are respectful to us, your hosts.

Your doubts notwithstanding, the band members indeed do read and indeed post on this forum.
And honestly... i wouldn't visit this forum myself if i was a band member... nothing said in new.

For someone who is new here, you sure have a strong opinion on the quality of conversation. Feel free, however, to contribute in a meaningful fashion and raise the bar for us all.
