This guy is a 'wanker'. He wants to kill every member here? Glad he put that out there...perhaps he's not sure how the law works? Now *THAT* is a 'wanker'. What a fucking tool.

Just when the air seemed to have finally cleared and the two boards could get on with their lives. Pity.

It's very much a Wilson/Love type vibe going on at the moment between the camps boards.

Well there are at least two super-annoying people (IMO) on that board (who shall remain unnamed) so in my mind it's got 2 strikes against it already. That being said, can't we all just get along (both forums I mean)?

Certainly not. I'd say you were a credit to both boards. :=)

Yes, I'm sure the two can get along. In fact it's already been that way for quite long stretches at a time...

gee, I wish both boards could get along in all seriousness, we are all supposed to be here
to love and share our joy for this wonderful band, it's members and fellow contributors.
sometimes we all need to pull our heads in for stepping over a line, we are human at the
end of the day.  Occasionally it takes someone else to tell us 'hey', then we have to process that
and then react. Sometimes we have to agree to disagree on certain things that come along
because we can all be pretty head strong when we feel we are right.
easier said than done I know, but, if it keeps the peace, it would make everything worthwhile.

'This place [Pet Sounds forum] seems nicer'? Ignorance is bliss. Instead of writing off all of those who dislike Mike Love, perhaps he should try to find out why. But if he has read the book and still doesn't know, I suppose there's no hope for him.

In NO WAY, SHAPE, or FORM are we "the biggest bunch of arseholes online."  Now that Iain's not here anymore it's become a complete impossibility.  He is the scale-tipper...the difference maker...the ass-hole enchilada.

Now?

This place has the 2nd "biggest bunch of arseholes online".

Very disappointing. It's worth pointing out that that video comes from June 15th (at the latest), and yet he spent 2 and 1/2 more months on a board he seemingly detested so much and whose members he had that level of animosity and disdain for.

Mere days ago, 2 1/2 months after his comments in that video, he posted this:

I get the feeling some people don't like me here. If I've done anything wrong, I apologise. Should I see myself out? I really don't want to be somewhere where people aggressively dislike me. (You'll say no one has been aggressive except me...ok...eye of the beholder and all that)

Serious question. I like the BB. I like talking about the BB. This thread is no a sh*t stirring thread. Swear on my life that's not why I started it. I assumed a few more of you might had proofs and heck, it comes out soon. This was a genuine attempt to get a conversation going. But. There are a few of you who won't believe that and so constantly take shots and have digs at me. If you'd rather I left, I'll go.


That someone would say, outside of the board, such bile-filled things about the board (even if done in a "comedic" setting), and then post months later playing the "victim" and seemingly not understanding why people might dislike him or take issue with his comments, tells me he was either "punking" the board all along and purposely being a sh*t-disturber and essentially what I believe in wrestling would be called "the heel" (no, I haven't watched wrestling since I was about five years old), and/or he just really likes being dramatic and maudlin when people don't agree with him.

Maybe it's a bit of both, but his first posts on the board (Why do you hate Mike Love?, or wording something along those lines), coupled with making the comments in that video and then *continuing* to post on the board for months suggests to me it's mostly about just being a s**t-disturber. I have no reason to doubt he likes the BBs, but perhaps because he's a "comedian" by some definition, he continued to willingly play that "heel" role here and then relish not only the criticism, but the resulting "playing the victim" bit in the aftermath.

As I told him directly in a recent thread, I feel he pretty much *used* the board to manufacture ammo in his pro-Mike article. I presume he left out of his article that he had to troll a board to elicit what he felt were negative comments about Mike.

So he started his time here as a literal s**t-disturber, and apparently for the length of his time here continued to vacillate between s**t-disturbing and then incredulously wondering why people didn't "like" him more.

I get the sense, and this is being as generous as possible, that he both wanted to be a s**t-disturber and also wanted to be, on his own terms, a nerdy BB fan and chat about the band. He wanted it both ways.

To get things a bit more back on topic and not about a person, I also sense he's a younger (relatively) and newer fan of the band, and as I've been saying, I think there's a small "new wave" of fans who haven't spent decades being into the band haven't had Mike Love challenging their bulls**t detector for all that time, so they're more likely to seem confused as to the level of animosity and criticism leveled towards Love.

If you've gotten into the band in the last 5-10 years, you've been able to become *very quickly* a near-expert on the band via Wikipedia, other websites, *this* board (ironically), and so on. There are a million online resources, tons of books, and downloading all of the band's stuff (both official and otherwise) is now just a click away. So you can absorb all of that without having nearly as much context about things like the ills that Mike Love has inflicted over the years (and not just Mike but a myriad of things that *contextualize* the band's history).
