Until then, I'm forever done talking to you. Have a good day.
I'll try to be as transparent as I can so you understand how off-based your responses were.
Check out the difference in how the following two people say they dislike a band, and I'll exaggerate a tiny bit to make this clear.
Person #1 - I don't like NIN.
Person #2 - I don't care if they are handing out $10 bills, and Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are giving handos, and all living members of the Beattles, the Who, Nirvana, and N'Sync join NIN on stage, I hate NIN's music, I'll never like it, don't even get to me try to like it, because I won't listen to you, and I don't care about live performances anyway, and you will never catch me there, and I just want to see Passion Pit again.
I don't care if person #1 doesn't like NIN, I stated earlier I'm not a huge fan myself. I don't care if person #2 doesn't like NIN, but I'm still going to tell him he's a pompous little shit. It has nothing to do with NIN.
I'm not a fan of how high school kids post. They aren't interesting although they think they are, they talk about themselves all the time, they make a lot of empty posts like "wow" and "no way," and they don't actually think about their posts, they just spout off random comments. I've had 1.500 posts to diagnose nick's style, and often he posts like a high school kid. There were a collection of nick posts arguing with Cysquatch which I found to be very immature, and he was spouting off insults without trying to make valid points. Then HG chimed in to back him up. It's positive reinforcement for an unwanted behavior. So I threw my hat in the ring, and told him I thought he was being juvenile. The further we got into the discussion, the more he acted like a high school kid. For example, a high school kid might say, "I hate NIN, always will," while someone with more maturity might say, "I don't like NIN, maybe I'll end up liking them years from now, but they aren't my thing." A high school kid might say, "Don't try to talk me into going to see NIN, because it won't work." Someone with more maturity might say, "so they put on a really cool visual show? Maybe I'll check it out for a bit to see what all the fuss is about. I don't want to regret missing it years from now." A high school kid (and HG in this example) might say, "Live performances don't mean anything, I want to sing along to songs I know." Someone with more maturity might be more willing to branch out and try new things, maybe get away from their comfort zone occasionally.
There was no argument on my end. This wasn't me trying to be right, and name call people who don't agree with me. This was me making an observation that a regular is posting like a little kid, and telling him. If you think I'm an asshole, you can tell me. That's not name calling. That's also an observation.
I sincerely hope nick's dream comes true, and one of the three headliners next year is a band he hates so he can get a better spot at a side stage, and I hope he gets the chance to curse my name and laugh about how angry he thinks I'll be that he is skipping a headliner. It sounds very high-school.
