I’m new here at Hard Radio. I’ll only stay on a few conditions.

First that there are no oldtimers rambling on about how much Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Anthrax and all those other losers who played metal before Iced Earth and no dullard rambling endlessly about how Ronnie James Dio sang metal the way it was meant to be sung or some nonsense like that.

Second thing is no one can reply to me with those stupid faces or other icons. I hate those things. If I wasn’t politically correct, I’d say those things were gay. And while we’re at it, how about if the folks monitoring these boards can filter out all stupid responses? I’m a pretty smart guy with an important job and I shouldn’t have to deal with idiots.

Finally, no Ozzy Osbourne imitators. The man is beyond pathetic. The last thing I need when I’m trying to have an intelligent discussion about metal is for some halfwit to respond with “Sharon” or “I'm the Prince of f**k Darkness”. This tiresome has been wore out his welcome 20 years ago and the idiots who admire this dope reflect poorly on intelligent headbangers everywhere.

I much smarter than most of the fans here, but I’ll do my best not to talk down to you nice people. I assure everyone here that you’ll all enjoy my insights into metal and hard rock and music in general. I’ll start posting as soon as my three conditions are met.

Oh, here's one more condition. Anyone who uses any or all members of Manowar as an avatar must refer to me as "sir". It is obvious that a person who represents themselves with the image of a band clad in loinclots is only doing so to compensate for a small penis. Thus I am a superior man to you, and you will treat me with the respect I deserve.

Something Wicked,

I'm going on the assumption you're email is simply a put-on and that you're not as big a dick as you first appear. Shame though for you, as the expression goes, you only have one chance to make a first impression. Anyhow, I won't waste too many words in response to your antisocial introduction of yourself, suffice giving you a little advice. Yes, this board can seem quiet from time to time,but it tends to be filled with posts from people who are genuine and open minded about other people's thoughts. That's what keeps me reading here, it's a rare site with respectful posters. To me, that seems rare in comparison with most other leisure net sites. Not likely, anyone will really put you in your place if your shitty attitude persists, but you will be ignored. If that's what you're objective is fine, but if not I'd suggest you try an approach a bit more friendly and open-minded.

Hopefully you'll actually contribute to this board.

Cheers.

I remember a time when this place started out as a great mb with cool people all the time. It flourished! Then there was a HUGE flame war and most, if not all, of those original posters don't come around anymore, or very infrequently. I think the flame war was back in 1999 or 2000?

You know though this is still one of the best boards for actual relevant posts as opposed to a jullion lame alphabet game or stuff like that just to boost post counts and clutter the forums. If I want intelligent conversation or actually information and good reviews I still come here first.

ditto, there are several thousand daily HardBoard visitors, mainly just reading.
