I disagree completely. This is a common argument that tries to push the problem away too easily.There are, of course, web pages that publish trivial things that are really not much more than drivel written by a bored kid that still lives in his mom's basement.
Yes it is, if you worry. I see it differently. Whatever comes to my path, I deal with it the way I see is right. I don´t care what it is or who it is or where it is but if I see it is wrong then I do what I can to make it right or at least give my opinion.But don't you think that life is simply too short to worry about the postings of people that are still stuck in such an adolescent mentality?
I have never ever anywhere been pro violence in any situation as your comment suggests. What I wrote was to demonstrate a point how different it is to write it in internet and say it to my face. I do think if you go to a musician and say "Hi Ron, I hate your album and the Lawnmover Waltz really sucks" then you are either:Yes, you could smack someone in the face that said that to you in person, but would it raise their I.Q. by even a single digit?

Like I wrote, most musicians dislike "judging" of their songs even if you are polite. It depends usually how long you have been in the business.
For me it doesnt matter anymore, but I write these few lines for other reasons. To raise awarness about more humane way to communicate that is based on tolerance and respect of another human being even when you dislike the music or person.
