While I don't always agree with Jason Tate I will say that this was a good read but I can't see any reason not to put it on AP. It isn't that controversial.

To be fair, we don't really have anywhere to post "articles" on AP. Short of sticking a news post, there's not really a good place to put that stuff. So it makes sense for Jason or anyone else to publish something on their blog, and then link it through an AP.net news post. That way, it doesn't get lost and buried so quickly.

I just hate to think that Real Friends comments have made Jason feel like he needs to censor himself. That band is so generic and bland (except for their Tweets apparently).

The opening paragraph of his blog post states "I thought about writing this on AP.net and realized I just simply didn’t want to deal with the chaos it would cause (so, I guess they win to some degree)". Fuck that.

I took that more as a statement that he didn't want to deal with the comments an AP.net news post would get, and after seeing how people around here reacted to Kelly's article about women on Warped Tour, I don't blame him. The comments for that thing made me lose faith in humanity a little bit.

If that's what he meant then fine but that's not how I read it. I don't see how you can't read as him stating he is "shackled" and therefore can't do what he wants to which is post this on AP and it is directly a result of that interview. I don't want to quote the whole blog but:

"It leaves me in a place where I feel as though I can’t speak my mind about this band without the internet assuming I have a vendetta. Frankly that pisses me off. That interview paints me in such a corner that if I write any thoughts at all about a band (especially this one), their music, or the character of the band members — I will immediately have what I say dismissed by some as biased. And that’s bullshit."

He's right that it is bullshit but then doing what they want in order to avoid "chaos" is self censorship and I can't go for that.
