Linkin Park have started work on their fifth studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2010's A Thousand Suns. Speaking to Kerrang! magazine, singer Chester Bennington stated: "We've been working on a new record for the past two months. The music is great and we're well ahead of where we're expecting to be. There aren't a whole lot of noises going on, but there are a lot of good songs. It will probably get a very polarized reaction, which pleases me. As an artist, I want a reaction."

You don't like what I do, yet you read and reply to my threads? How do you know what everyone on here likes or doesn't like? As long as I'm not breaking any rules, I'll post any god damn fucking thing I want. You really seem to have something against me personally because in almost every thread I start, you come in and say something against it. I just don't get it. Like I said, if you don't like my threads, why are you even bothering to read and reply to them?

And the reason you want to berate me is? I've never done or said anything personally to you. What is it that you have against me?

Posting shit as huge threads about shit no one cares about instead of just posting them in the What Are You Doing thread or in General Chat :mad:

But these are OFFICIAL NEWS items and the other section isn't appropriate for them. Again, you don't know what EVERYONE on here thinks and if they care or not about what I post.

No one gives a fuck of Linkin Park has started to write material for a new album. There's not even enough people who give a fuck if Iron Maiden has started writing for a new album to warrant a whole entire thread devoted to it.

The fact that every fonz thread consist of nothing but complaining about fonz threads and no discussion of the topic whatsoever proves manks point.

Okay, when it comes down to it Fonz, this is my reasoning of why people dislike you here.

Of course, there is no rule saying you can't post news about Linkin Park here. And of course, there is no rule you can't post every single minuscule update regarding Iron Maiden. But there is an etiquette that you can't seem to grasp. On a metal forum like this one, where it should be apparent that there are none to very few Linkin Park fans, is it really necessary to update us about their new album? Sure, it might be nice for those select number of members who happen to like them, but the majority of us couldn't give two shits about it. And don't you think that those fans would already have read this elsewhere if they were that interested in the band? The point is that this is not really the place to be posting Linkin Park news. And if you still feel so inclined to post it, at least do it in the general section. Nobody will bother you there.

As for your constant Iron Maiden posts, those are the type of updates you would expect to see on a board devoted to Iron Maiden. Yes, there are plenty of Iron Maiden fans here, but we don't need a ton of threads clogging up a forum for that is for every genre of metal, not just one band. Point is, you're being inconsiderate. And if you need a better understanding of it, here's a little analogy: there's no law saying you should hold a door open for a person exiting a building, but if you disregard them, don't you think that's rude?

You do make some very good points there Treghet, but how do I know what people care or don't care about unless I start a thread to find out?

Show me these tons of Iron Maiden threads that I've been starting.

Also, there are a good number of threads with 5 replies or less that I didn't start and I don't see anyone complaining about those.

All of you need to stop complaining about stuff. Stop the bitching about what fonz or what anyone else posts. Either shut the fuck up or disscuss the topic of the thread.

Holy shit, am I really going to have to go in-depth with you about this? Jesus Christ. Okay:

1. A small number of replies does not make a thread better or worse than another. For instance: this shitty fucking thread.

2. 3 of those are tour/show announcements. Those go here regardless. When Linkin Park announces a shitty fucking tour, it can go here too.

3. Those threads are all initiating or trying to initiate conversation. This thread is just stating a fact, and a fact that has no fucking interesting details to back it up whatsoever. No album art, no release date, no songtitles, nothing. When Anaal Nathrakh goes into the studio to record their next album and they make a facebook update about it, I'm not going to fucking make a thread here because IT'S FUCKING NOTHING.

4. Stop making shitty fucking threads.

1. The number of replies tells you how many people actually care.

2. I agree with that.

3. Some of those threads just have the facts as well. Just that a band has tour dates or such. If a band starts to write material for a new album, there might be people on here who will be interested in knowing that and will get excited. Especially if it's for a band they love.
http://www.metalsetlists.com/search.php?searchid=1121257 Look at the Judas Priest, Mastodon, and Alice In Chains threads. I don't see you complaining about those. So, I'm convinced you have something personal against me which I don't get.

4. As long as I'm not breaking any rules, who cares what threads I make?
