Can't you just create another profile if you enter in a different e-mail and name?

Yeah, its all a bit impersonal there, even the moderators are sometimes as bad as the people who participate in it, theres a lot of elitists and bad mouthing. Unpleasant. However, it does have its funny/helpful side occassionally.

It can definitely sometimes be funny. Just reading the comments after someone writes a stupid article can be hillarious. Like this one: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/columns/gen...good_metal.html

Although UG may have its drawbacks, its probably worth remembering Kris does alot of cool work for them. Also it does give us a steady amount of traffic and new subscriptions! wink.gif

UG Is an overall terrible place for music lovers from my experience. I was talking in a cannibal corpse thread, and someone mentioned Jack Owens (Original CC Guitarist, Now departed) bluesy acoustic side project, and he said it was really cool, reminded him of older blues, and when i commented how much i liked that stuff, i caught a whole bunch of hell for it, he got banned because he brought it up, and i was "warned".

So i left,a dn its not like the conversation covered the entire thread, this entire conversation was something like this....

"Have you heard abot jack owens side project, kinda like bluesy acoustic stuff, pretty neat."

then i responded...

"thats awesome, i love that kinda stuff"

And then he posted a quick link, then we went back to CC, And he got banned for the link....wtf?

I hate UG So much.

Sorry, im rambling.

LOL ! yes that is a pretty crazy article Owen laugh.gif

With regards to the forum, yes it may have its problems but I think if we can show the community how "advanced" we are in terms of quality of both the way we conduct ourselves, and our skills it *may* rub off on them!! smile.gif

Also, I think we should be a little mindfull of what we write about UG as I would hate to think we would undo any of the hardwork Kris has put in!! wink.gif
