I wouldn't really be condeming someone for a "poor" written post.

if your time is oh so important why waste it on a discussion list??? If yr
time means that much to you, maybe you should unsubscribe and evaluate your
precious time.

well victor, maybe some of us don't have so much time on there hands like
you. Why shouldn't he be able to post about his label here??? Considering
since most of the projects he puts forth to the list (eg broken glass cd,
More Of Our Stupid Noise etc etc) fill the east coast rule, there should be
no problem what so ever w/ what he post.

FUCK IT !!! Why don't you just boot everyone who lives west of Quebec off
the list. That seems like a great solution.

Well maybe with all that time you saved from people not wasting it, you can
write a handbook that comes along w/ subscribing to SloanNet. I think you
people need to realize that when a band gets "bigger" yr gonna have more
people wanting to join their mailing lists, look at their websites etc etc
etc. The exact thing happened on the Sebadoh-l, the band has recently gotten
heavy radio attention, and well the # of people who have recently joined the
list has increased, and you know, the people who have been there for a lot
longer of time  have been patient and polite to help people help, not
ranting on in a rage basically scaring the people away. Do you think ranting
on like this will stop someone from posting as much??? I Don't think so..

I thought by reading your mail, theres a thing called diversity. One person
could slam a show and another could praise it. Most people like diversity,
anything else would be just plain bland.

Why is it of late that everyone is pulling a whole "indie than thou" trip,
it really ain't cool, this place used to be great up until about a month
ago, I'm very surprised James hasn't pulled the plug on this yet, and if all
this keeps up, I would'nt be surprised if he doesn't pull it soon. Thank you
and Fuck you.
