Un petit question: How could he "think they sound like My Bloody
Valentine" if he has never heard them? Duh.

Obviously, that's a matter of opinion. :)

Well obviously, otherwise we wouldn't even be having this conversation.
:) I'm sure that many people on this list like The Tragically Hip too,
but that doesn't make it okay to lose the focus of the list. That's
what Usenet is for.

By that argument, posting "HOT TEENAGE BISEXUAL GIRLS WITH REAL BREASTS"
spam ads to 1,000 newsgroups is okay, because with a threaded newsreader

How long have you been on the list? I have NEVER seen James act the
dictator. Even though I don't know James personally, I imagine that
that's a role he has no interest in taking, either.

So instead of sitting here thinking "Gee, I wish someone would post
what Rome Plows sounds like," why don't you make a post that says "Can

So start up a thread talking about them!

So are mine, but that's just because I had to go all day without my
glasses. Being an accountant is really hard when everything is blurry.
