Enh, this is somewhat useful. Also, I love how the user rating for Final Frontier is slowly falling. :fingers:

1) No it isn't.

2) Have you heard it?

It has though. I remember the user rating was in the like 8.5 at first now it's down to like a 7 something last I looked. It's a really good album but I listened to it too much when I first got it so i've been taking a break from it the last couple weeks.

Maybe some people are in the same boat so the rating may have gone down because of that.

No it isn't was in reference to thread being useful. Because it isn't. Because it's stupid.

The thread title was for fun, intended to grab your attention.

Just because you're not doesn't mean others aren't.

I'm sure because it's ME who starts some of these threads, they get reactions like "god damn it fonzy". I'm willing to bet that if people who give those reactions were the thread starters, you'd all react a bit differently. I'm not sure what people have against me on here.

Actually, I'd have the same reaction if anyone else here started this thread. And no one ever had anything against you (to my knowledge) - they just point out that most of the threads you start are pointless.

You just seem to come off overly excited about a lot of little things. At least it shows you're passionate about what the bands you like are up to so that's a positive.

Because if somebody else does it, it wouldn't be like they've done it before, and they don't do it all the time.
That's like saying, "you're only mad that I'm making a joke about jews because I'm Hitler". Maybe not, but it's still a funny thought :lol:

For all you know, they have terrible benefits and pay 10k a year. The only reason you consider this at all cool is because Dickinson works there. Either way though, this thread was not necessary.

The problem is that you constantly post threads that, for how much people genuinely care about them, could just be addressed via a post in the "What Are You Doing" Thread - aka where most people on this board go to randomly vent thoughts on casual news, not worth posting about in the News Subforum or as its own topic here.

The problem with that is not everyone will check it. Starting a new thread insures that more people will have a chance of seeing it. As long as I'm not breaking any rules, I'm not too worried about it. If it was really that big of a deal, wouldn't the mods lock or delete my threads? I'm sure I'll end up starting up more similar threads. In that case:

Fair enough - and you're right, you're not breaking any rules. I just think it's a lot of clutter and just common courtesy to not post a thread for every random thing like this. I can understand your concern over people seeing it if it's actual news that effects any of us, but this certainly is not.

I see your point. Also, this is general chat, not the official news section. That's why I posted it here. Because I didn't deem it important enough to be in the news section. And I don't post a new thread for EVERY random thing. There are a LOT of things that I could post about, but don't. I just figured that this might catch the attention of the Maiden fans on here. Guess I was wrong. I'll never know unless I try though and I plan on to keep trying. :)

About as good as the chances anyone's even flown with them. Or even heard of them had it not been for Bruce.

Same here. He may post some goofy thread topics but he's not trolling or anything. You can tell he means well with what he does and he's not trying to annoy anybody. He's just like that one guy we all know who tells us some random fact about something. After he's done you think, "well that's an intresting bit of info" but come the next day you already forgot about it.

Fonz, haters gonna hate. You have my full support.This. You have become an unofficial mascot for the board in some ways, and Satan loves you for that. Keep up the good work. We all need the laughs. If anybody actually thinks the board is really and truly getting too cluttered up by your silly threads that they can't stand it anymore, then they are welcome to fuck right the fuck off to some other corner of the interwebs.

Plus, I just love having a reason to post this:

So, revel in it, I guess, Fonzy. This is as close to a compliment as you're ever gonna get from the guy. :D

Just because you can post a thread doesn't mean you should... just sayin. I find it helpful at times though, then I don't have to bother to go to blabbermouth and read the news for myself, its like I've got fonz to be a news anchor and tell me what I need to know. It helps me to be lazy.
