This was easily the best discussion yet and a discussion I have had about this site with some of the bands I've worked with recently. You guys are in positions of power and I think that comes with some responsibility. Is Drew's bagel comment about Real Friends humorous? Sure, but I would have rather heard him say some constructive criticism at the time. Hence the back and fourth I've had with Jason's comments about Modern Baseball. Does saying "I need stronger aspirin to get me through this record" help understand why he doesn't like the music? Once there was some back and fourth I realized what he didn't like and what his reasons were for not getting into the band but that took some time. Maybe even longer than writing a review would of taken.
This podcast helped me better understand your feelings on making those comments. I think you guys should have a place to voice your opinion and have fun. While I would still rather them be constructive, I enjoy people having fun, but like you said I think it's important to remember the fact that a lot of bands read this website and would you say those comments to their face.
Keep up the good work on the podcasts.
