Sorry to crank this thread up again but I wanted to make one point.

My take on this is that the Features Editor is constrained by EMI and is acting on their rules more than any personal whims of FEd or any guidelines from David himself. He may have some "prick" of a boss over him shouting orders...saying that people can't talk about rumors and bootlegs and stuff...and he's passing it along to us. A bit too vehemently sometimes but maybe he's under a lot of pressure.

Yes, this is speculation but we don't really know the whole situation, do we? FEd definitely comes on too strong for me sometimes but I don't think he's pure evil or anything. I wish he were a bit more professional at times....

Maybe dealing with the complaining, argumentative bloggers has taken something out of him...he used to be a bit more upbeat in my opinion. Maybe constantly answering the same stupid questions and dealing with unreasonable people can really bring you down.

And, like FatOldBob said, I like having BOTH outlets...the official blog and the fansites. That's the best of both worlds, so to speak. (Hey, Bob...it's me, Becky.)

That's all.

Welcome, Becky.

I find this place to be the most balanced place for Pink Floyd related discussion on the web. The which one's Pink argument almost never happens here. Of course there are individuals who are more David fans and some that are more Roger fans, but everyone seems to respect each other.

And the moderators are quick to shut the real trolls down.

That and David and Roger discussions, we all know how those end up.

This is why I love Neptune. There are no grillers or fights here.

I fell out on Glimpse and was banned from there after I quit last November arguing with some people and I got grilled for speaking my mind.

If some of you hate this guy so much. Do what we Americans do with people we hate, we call them a rapist or a sexual pedophile and we watch the water turn. Just look at Pee Wee.

Okay, now seriously... Surely itˇs okay to censor bad words and stuff, but that guy... That fansites statement is not only a general insult to those, but also a personal insult to every member of them - since theyˇre all "rubbish", like he says, thus all we put on those sites is rubbish too - our words, our opinions,... our work! *with sarcasm* Thatˇs a waste of time even! And of course we do not truly appreciate PF/its members, do we? *end of sarcasm*
I think he should let David watch the blog sometime, why wonˇt he? And maybe David should pay a bit more attention, too.

Oh no, I'm rising to the call of the "all-people-that-think-the-opposite-to-me-should-be-knee-capped" hormone again....

I really shouldn't post to this board after the pub but can't help thinking that we should all really have something better to be doing....Roger this, Dave(id) that, FEd the other. I shouldn't care but hey.

Oh, and by the way who'd be FEd? Long live FEd.

I dunno. If OFG lost his balance and fell, it'd cause an avalanche. We'd surely have seen something on the news.

I wouldn't mind taking the job. I could exercise my evil dictatorship ways. How dare the stupid minions on this site ask stoopid questions like when is David going to play in their hometown, what's the story with Pink Floyd, when's he going to make another record, why is OAI better than Vicodin.... mwahahahahahhaaa
