Hmm.... the only place I have seen more people using the word faggot is 4chan. And then they say MA is filled with arrogant, hatefull people. :/ I don't know how it's possible, but you can actually feel the hate seeping out of that place.

Meh. They are observing us as we post apparently. Just clicked on that forum to see what all the hubbub was about, and the latest post was a link to this page. So, it's all good, I guess. Visitors are visitors!

Regardless, I like this community, and think it's cool and shit. Been here for the heydays and the hollow parts.

Hateful support is still support I guess!

EDIT I may have been a little harsh on NWN as a whole, but that particular thread is certainly something else.

some dude on that website complaining about MA wrote:
Braveboard, hah. That place is so bad. One of those forums where the posters' taste goes about as deep as Nevermore and Iced Earth. The trading forum is good once in a blue moon, you see some users there that don't post their stuff anywhere else. Once picked up Orkblut and Supreme Immortal Art for 10 bucks from a guy there.

Normally people complain that MA is too underground and full of "close minded elitists who only listen to black metal demos limited to 666 copies on special red goat blood vinyl". Never seen anybody complain that MA is too entry level/mainstream.

He's talking about the Braveboard, not mA, and it really is as bad as he says. It used to be the only other metal forum I frequented because a huge portion of the local scene "hangs out" there, but I felt like banging my head against the keyboard when I'd look at teh first page and see about five variations of topics like 'So there's a new Megadeth album out?", or "what's your favourite Metallica riff"...seriously the same topics posted by different people with just slightly different wording in the OPs. THe moderation is pretty poor, but maybe better than it used to be, since one guy used to shut down topics started about shows he didn't support/endorse...I think that kind of stuff's ancient history now though...at least I hope so.

But pissing contests are fun! Especially in the winter, when the piss streams freeze in midair and create beautiful rainbows!

Although there is the risk of two streams from opposing competitors freezing together and then you're bound to another man's junk for 3 months...

Every time I read "NWN" I think "Neverwinter Nights" which is a videogame far too needlessly complicated for my taste.

Pretty damn warm here in Melbourne, yeah... won't argue with that. :lol:

Feels closer to 41 out here in Healesville, though.

40 now. Aaaaasrgh. I'm melting. Granted, this happens a lot every summer... But that doesn't make it better. Self-pity, woot.

Ahem. I'd kill for 35F now. I really would.

Exactly 0F in New Hampshire. Too warm. Which is why I'll be leaving in one week to study 'abroad' at the University of Alaska in Anchorage. Speaking of which, I'm going to need the perfect frostbitten black metal soundtrack to play as my plane touches down. Any suggestions?

As much as I've heard Anal Cunt haven't noticed metallic riffs in the music. It's sort of aggressive noise, nothing else. And whoever says Melvins have no metal influence in them or they aren't metal, needs to consult a psychiatrist asap. That forum is full of bullshit!

I went through his posting history and I've found two notable similarities between the leader of the Kroegerian brotherhood group/Soft furry kittens (both banned) on last.fm. MalignantThrone seems to be very frequent with the words 'gay' and 'fluffy kitties' just like the spammer on last.fm.

I'm late to this, but... excuse me?

Why doesn't last.fm have a mechanism to ban certain IP/MAC addresses to prevent such shit from recurring time and again.

Haha yeah, that was hilarious but I feel like facepalming rather than laughing at what they did.

You know what they say about the summer, keep yerself hydrated at all times. I tend to be horrible in that respect and end up with that odd kidney pain (dunno the medical condition for that). Also, Agalloch isn't coldfrostbitten enough...

Someone asked why there were riots happening in London and elsewhere in England last year, some of the reason can be found here. Interesting article especially as over the decades politicians have been doing their upmost to add to the pressure of a stable family unit.

On a related note, I didn't know MA was so hated by other boards. Sure, I was aware that this place had its fair share of detractors (hell, like pretty much every forum), but I only see shit talking on that forum.....

A certain group of NWN! forum members always, always bitch about us. No matter what we do, they will find a way to hate us for it. It's a total knee-jerk reaction with no thought put behind it, but it's inevitable. The funniest case was when we added the "RIP" section; they were bitching it was awful and disrespectful (nevermind it's the opposite, a tribute to the departed), and when someone pointed out a site called Voices from the Dark Side did the same thing, they were all "oh but their version is tasteful and respectful, M-A are faggots". The cognitive dissonance is just hilarious. :)


It's not "You", it's the fact that because MA has such a big footprint on the net the forums attract a lot of entry-level discussion which the kind of late-30's underground vet people who by and large make up that board find symptomatic of trends in social discourse they find distasteful. It's a version of "get off my damn lawn".

No issue with the RIP thing, but I WILL admit I was livid when you allowed users to put my date of birth up on my band's profile. It's just asking for identity theft and problems passing customs checkpoints when you try and fly under the radar as far as touring visas go. I cant see what it actually adds to anything and it feels like an invasion of privacy.

Does anyone know where the "bonus" track The Ghoultimate Duo originally came from off of Ulver's Perdition City? I can't seem to find anything about it asides from the fact that it was never on the album.

That would be a sight, I'm sure! Keep saving money for it, there are plenty of good plastic surgeons in the world! Once you get them, pics please, but only after the scars have healed. Most of us prefer naturals, though.
