I don't really comment on things I don't like, unless it's a genre or band that I normally like, but I think has failed in this particular occasion. In that case, it's more noteworthy that it sucks. I wouldn't jump into a conversation about things I don't like because I'm not interested in them... because that may very well be (or might not be, but how could I even tell?) one of the cases of "it's not them, it's me".

"I hate when people say they like the same thing as me. Hey guys, I'm posting something about how I like Band A. I don't give a fucking shit if you also like them, just leave me alone. I hate people that compliment my tastes."

I turned it around for you, but its the same idea. If you are going to post your opinion (on something as subjective as music) in a public forum, then you open yourself up to comments. You presumably told us all that you like Band A because you expect other people to, but if everyone hates that band, then thats your own fault. Go sit in your closet by yourself and talk about how good that band is if you don't want input.

Only valid if it's from people who normally like the style Band A plays. If it's, to go back to my previous example, a death metal band, and people who don't like death metal say the band sucks, that's irrelevant and irritating.

I only like good bands so I can't comment on bad ones.

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.

Well, all the guys you agree with here have vaginas, so I'm not surprised we disagree normally.
