I for one am glad to see AP applying the same standard to Kanye as they have scene-folks that are misogynistic, predatory, etc.

Thanks for fostering an environment where we can all discuss this in...

This is really good stuff. Reminds me of trip-hop mixed with some Facing New York. Hard to believe it's just one person!

Rest in peace, Jon.

You were an inspiration and will be a bright spot in Further Seems Forever's legacy. Seeing you in 2004 was a high point in my young life and I thank you for...

Please read my PM, you are still misinformed - the only post (http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?p=132959896#post132959896) I have in that thread is non-combative, and in support of bands taking...

I think you genuinely have me confused with someone else. My "Who Quoted Me" reads as follows:

14 quoted posts since 6/4/2015 - 9 of those are you quoting me. The other 5 are misc. users that...

I can simultaneously support the cause of Safer Scene, and the work that those men and women have put in, while still thinking there's an element of toxicity on this website. You and some of your...

jason, I think you might be confused.....you quoted a section of a conversation I had with the Safer Scene folks...nothing else was quoted.

I don't see how my opinion on these threads turning toxic could be factually wrong - it's just an observation and how I feel about the climate here.

I'm glad you get that feedback, and I have also learned a lot from certain threads - but it doesn't change my opinion on how these news stories develop, or their place in the major outlets. I think...

again, I completely understand - I think since you've already mentioned artists by name in your articles, it wouldn't be too great of a leap to create another listing. I think the culture of the...

Makes sense. Thanks for your work with the org. My suggestion was not meant to call out the accused artists, but to divert some of these unproductive conversations to a place where they'll do more...

it's the new era of music journalism, someone finds something offensive on social media and demands the artist provides a satisfactory apology or gets removed from tours/festivals/etc., or a boycott...

I agree with this. I think shaming artists for taking money from people with means is unproductive, but it is important to acknowledge the consequences of it. This article did a great job...

Cathy Pellow has a great reputation, I hear she treats her bands well and she's never stooped to the level of signing a shit band just to make a quick buck. Her and Rickley seem like they'd be great...

man, me being upset because a lot of your users are throwing out knee-jerk reactions to this stuff does not mean I'm clueless. I've tried to engage with you, but if you want to write me off like some...

I think both Noisey and AP creating news out of this casts Geoff in an unnecessarily bad light. This guy likely threw his money around at a ton of things he was passionate about. The news is here...

Horrendous? I think my post was polite, and mostly directed at Craig - your description might be a tad hyperbolic.

It'd be great to see you address some of the knee-jerk reactions without writing me...

You have no idea if Rickley compromised his morals, nor do you understand the exact nature of how the label is set up, funded, or operated. The use of a platitude like "dance with the devil" is a...

Bands, you see this behavior while you're on tour. Stop waiting for fans to come forward to expose these predatory pieces of shit, deal with it NOW.

Some people grow up and cling to their faith, others don't. Nothing to be disappointed about...that's life.
