At the moment the point for me is that somebody tries desperately to cleave the forum into two parts. The haters and the lovers. Apparantly only this person is able to differnce or to recognize them and pushes with his so called mission a lot of .... (pick a word of your choice) into a normally peaceful forum.

I still don't see the problem here!?!?!?!

It's really very easy. Some people like Purple no matter what they bring to the table, and wouldn't say anything negative about the band or the bandmembers even if they started to make hip hop records, some people don't like what Purple are doing today. Some people are pleased with what Purple do today, some are not. Some people feel strongly that Purple are moving in the right direction, some people feel strongly that they're moving in the wrong.

We all have a different view, and that's OK.
We are here to discuss those views, even argue about them. All that is OK!

I even think that it's OK to say what you want about the bandmembers 'cause they have choosen the public life themselves, and if they can't take that part of the "famous bit"...well, they should find something else to do. If someone says that Gillan is an old fart and a silent screamer, that's their opinion, and they say so to make a point. Some people here on the forum seem to miss the point a little of posts like that, and seem to think that the poster is just being plain evil. They (mostly) just want a little attention about their topic and views. Try reading between the lines...

The only problem is when fellow posters are attacking eachother, and being serious about it. What's the point?



It goes way back between some of us, and there is no way you can know about it, without having followed the entire infection.

The "point" you talk about, can't be made that way, but reading between the lines can be a big mistake, trust me as a veteran here.(people do it to me, waaaaaaaay too much)

It's really very simple, either you pay homage to the subject, or you don't.
But when things weigh heavily in the direction of negativity, then the users of this forum, have their own use of it, to think about... was this forum designed to harbor good and bad vibes, about something we all have in common, either a likeness for Purple, or a hatred?
Or was it designed to promote nothing but a corner of former fans, who're now anti fans, who just want to express their disillution?

There has to be a balance, or you're likley to be seen for what you're allowing.

Re: Good Quality Video Of Rapture Of The Deep


KB you beeing norwegian I can understand that YOU don't get the point... emoticon
I have never claimed that I like the current lineup more than any else, AAMOF mk II is still my fave lineup BUT I don't see the need to insult with every post I put here.
Like I said someone have already ruined alt music dp with posts like that.
Or you perhaps are the guy standing behind the bully at the schoolyard smirking when he beats the !@#$ out of some poor fellow.
Just because it's feels good...
Professional or not these guys are only humans too just like you and me.

Re: Good Quality Video Of Rapture Of The Deep


 Just wondering if perhaps the majority of folks around here would be happier with the following policy, which was borrowed (and slightly amended, here & there) from another rock band discussion board:

"From now on, our policy is this: You submit a post or open a topic that is derogatory toward any other board members or members of Deep Purple (current or past) in this community, you will be banned from this board. The band are absolutely appalled by your behavior and would rather not have you be a part of this community if you can't act like an adult. No further warnings will be given to you, as we feel we have been polite and patient. Enough is enough already, and if you can't respect Deep Purple, the band members of Deep Purple, the administrators & moderators of this board, or your fellow board members, then you don't deserve to be here."

 Seems rather restrictive & overly harsh - so I know I wouldn't like it at all - and if the above was implemented, I'd be one of the ones who'd have to enforce it...again, I wouldn't like that at all.

Is that a rhetorical question or do you expect answers?

It's your business to decide that. Not mine.

Larry, for !@#$'s sake let it be already.

I have been monitoring this issue from the very start, and no, there's nothing here on this thread which goes well back between any of you. We already handled that situation.

You can defend DP all you like, but from now on don't do it by going through fellow posters here like you chose to do this time. You can't deny that, just look at with what kind of a post you came into this discussion.
