Go sit in your closet by yourself and talk about how good that band is if you don't want input.
Wow, I am in shock. We finally agree on something.
I don't go out of my way to participate in threads of no interest to me, most times I don't even click on them (unless I'm really really bored). But yeah, if you are posting something on a public forum, you open yourself up for a variety of opinions, positive or negative. I consider myself well rounded in all types of rock/metal music, so I have just as much right to bitch about say, the Goo Goo Dolls, as I would about Amon Amarth. Not that I have a complaint about either band at the moment, just using two ends of the spectrum as an example.
