    What would be good is if new registration was just banned for the month of January. It sounds kind of harsh, but think of all the detritus it would cut back on.

Seems kind of unfair to label me just cause I'm new to this forum. Just a thought. Anyways, no need to thank me for the lineup - the music shall be my reward. God bless.....
    For the record, I am not this person's brother's friend's life-partner, nor do I work for Goldenvoice. And yes, I make it my personal mission to respond to as many posts as possible in which this poster is mentioned.

    Good day.

    best thread ever! if only for the fact that it turned into a flame war before most people got finished reading the original post.

    my take on it is that, for the most part... long-term message board residents are elitist assholes on good days... you could post something completly relevant or something completly non-sensical and you're more than likely to get flamed equally either way. but it's a rite of passage. Each one of those elitist fucks got treated just the same as i'm gonna get treated and as any other "newbie" is gonna get treated and we can either suck it up and laugh it off or fuck off. But if you stick around long enough you'll get to the point where you can be the prick. Me, I don't care either way. I'm not here to impress anybody and i'm not here to NOT impress anybody either. I'll do my thing and how ever it's taken if fine and dandy with me.

    I'm here because last year I spent what could possibly be the best three days of my life at Coachella and most days all I can think about is when i'll be there again. I'll tell ya though, it is kinda sad that the community representing that wonderful time of year doesn't even come close to having the same feeling... actually inspires the exact opposite of what Coachella stands for.

    Easy solution to your problems:

    Don't post bullshit threads about Pearl Jam being confirmed that aren't even witty and then go crying all over the board like a little girl with a skinned knee and shit about how people just flame everyone for no reason.

    haha. you think i'm not aware that that thread was neither a) needed nor b) funny? I just wanted to see what type of reaction it'd get (got what I was looking for by the way). And please point out where in my post i'm "whining or crying"? I'm just pointing out a simple fact that the majority of people who frequent this (or any other message board for that matter) are elitist pricks... yourself most definetly included. Do I care that you think you're better than me because you've ("you" is a generalization of course) been here longer or got a couple more posts than me? Do those qualification prove anything? Not in the least. I don't care if I get flamed? You (in this case you in particular), sir, matter so little to me that i'm not even going to finis...

    ShyGuy would like the record to show that he never would have taken that tone or gave the Hogan boot to captcrzy if he had known she was a girl, and for that, he apologizes.

    Meh. I say take the apology back. The internet is ambiguous... net chivalry can't be dead if it never existed in the first place.

    Bah. Don't worry about it.

    I did cry, though. And eat chocolate ice cream under the covers a'la Bridget Jones.

    No ao, the message stands for the high school males it was intended for, and they know who they are. Woman and children getting maimed by crossfire is never a good thing.

    Having been around this and the old board for awhile (though I do not post often) I have to say this board has gotten very hostile as of late. I agree that it is really annoying with all the really bad threads and posts but in some situations there are people with the best intentions that do not deserve to be flamed. This board is advertised on myspace as well as Coachella.com as a place to discuss thus drawing in many people and some of them may not frequent message boards and know the common protocal. Give some people a break. If they continue their idiocy then flame away.

    This board is more hostile than craigslist rants and raves.

    True enough. But i'm gonna take a step back from my original stance and say that it's understandable for this particular environment to be hostile. Mostly considering it's that time of year, long term residents have to deal with an explosion of non-sense (myself included in partaking in said non-sense.. yes i'm an ass). I even wanna shout at the computer screen every time I see that fucking poster with David Bowie at the top (but Rilo Kiley is on there too, so I just think of Jenny Lewis and smile .

    I mean last year's Coachella got huge amounts of attendance and huge amounts of coverage due to a certain reunion and if anyone hadn't heard of the festival before, well, yeah... you get me. Once something official comes out it'll all cool down i'm sure. I JUST WANT THE FUCKING LINE-UP!!!!............................................ .(calm again)

    uh i think the bottom line is...

    this is the COACHELLA message board

    if you think you have/need some info on coachella, THE BOARD ALREADY HAS THE ANSWER. IT KNOWS BEFORE YOU DO.

    the board is smarter than you. accept it.

    no worries, I figured it might be a misunderstanding. now I understand exactly what you meant, and I wholeheartedly agree :P

    thought you might still be in a bad mood over de-tagification.

    high five, buddy
