My 'real world' is soley populated by people - bandmates, workmates, grown up children and their friends who all think that KISS' asking price at all levels is hilarious. They think that KISS fans must be stupid. As a KISS fan that bothers me. Maybe you should get out more.


I've stated an opinion you don't agree with. I don't agree with your opinion. Simple as that.

If the people around me actually worried what KISS does I would find that hilarious. Sounds like your circle needs to get over themselves and buy the new Taylor Swift cd. Maybe you should get out of your circle more.


Truly desperate deflection. Wabe's band and friends in the industry - Hard rock and Garage Punk fans for the most part. Wabe's daughter a drummer in a noise punk band of growing repute. Her favourite movie? Only partially ironically, Detroit Rock City. Her friends - the same type of kids. I'm lucky.

They don't 'worry' - and I never said that they did.

You're coming close to Nibbler-like heights of hilarity. Just saying...


My name brought up twice so far and I haven’t even thrown my hat in this race.

It’s nice to be thought of. :D


It's happened to me before as well. Scary what some folks remember and think about eh :lol:

Ah! The classic witch-trial scenario, much beloved of simple folk. Accept the dullard's assumption that my social circle is ignorant of the genre and its marketing , or reveal something of the personal actuality that renders that assumption as redundant and be picked up as a figure of fun that way.

What is notable is that such tactics have left their feudal origins to find their most obvious parallel within the trick-bag of the modern troll.

So now we have the moral crusade to somehow 'cleanse' a band message board being led by - irony of ironies - people who operate like trolls.

... are you for real...?!

8) :lol:

Honestly, I can't tell if you're being serious or facetious, seeing you apparently relish at the chance of coming across as modern Chaucer of sorts.

Re: Dear members of the board...

Reading this entire thread, there's a few folks who remind me of my brother who'd run to mom & dad whenever things got scrappy, and then stick his tongue out while he's standing behind them.

I'll take one tomwabe over 100 immature Kiss sunshine pumpers every day of the week....and conversely, I'll take one nightwingken over 100 non-fans of the current lineup who are equally immature....

And - and this'll really keep you awake - many of them are KISS fans.

Worse yet - two of them are actually in the band!

Trashing thread after thread in pursuit of some personal agenda is hardly the same as having a heated discussion/debate about a topic. Hell, valuable tangents do occur in the execution of normal conversations. This has nothing to do with bias, it has everything to do with normal values. Start any topic and it seems that too often the usual suspects show up with their misery.

Oh, "I'm being repressed." How about not being "that guy"? You know, drunk uncle Louie who starts shouting "Lock Her Up" when refused a second piece of pie at Thanksgiving.


This. Again amd again.

"If I don't constantly voice my displeasure of Kiss this place will become a circle jerk ."

To the point some of these posters actualy believe they are doing us a favor :scratch:
Exactly. I wanted to post this myself but held back. I also found it rich one post claiming (paraphrasing) "without this type of negative banter, this site would he boring". These individuals have made it clear their B.S. is deliberate and to such a degree, they believe it should he accepted behaviour, and debate the admin over it.


You point out the negative behavior....what about the overwhelmingly positive remarks about current KISS that are simply just NOT true. Does that count? Is that deliberate? So it's ok to be a "rah rah" cheerleader of BS but pointing out that BS is "negative"? That's the problem. Interpretation.

Where does it end?


Being a rah rah cheerleader of a band, on a fan site dedicated to that band, makes PERFECT sense.
Making overwhelmingly positive remarks about a band, on a fan site dedicated to that band, makes PERFECT sense.
Joing a fan site dedicated to a particular band, then RELENTLESSLY making THOUSANDS of negative posts/replies about that band, makes ZERO sense.

to me its like this: you take the good with the bad. repeatedly expressing e-hurt and demanding something be done about it is 75483209758493 times more obnoxious than the people who say shit just to say shit. i save my e-indignation for only the most egregious of violators *cough.....Niblettes....cough*......everything else isnt worth the effort. if it bothers or offends you, laugh/blow it off, and move on. people who pout and stamp their feet over something they CHOOSE to expose themselves to are beneath contempt to me. this is the internet. its not real. it doesnt matter if you dont let it. move. the fuck. on.

I largely agree with your thoughts here, however, what exactly is Nibbs in violation of? The guy provides a ton of stats largely to pump up the current line-up and digs his heels in when challenged. Sure, he doesn't seem to ever concede an inch, but what exactly is the violation? Seems to me the violators are those who really chose to make things personal with him.

This is how I see it. Nibs does his thing, is attacked continuously - even in threads he isn't participating in. Some should really just put him on "ignore."

he's obnoxiously obtuse and pretentious, and grasps micro-straws to support already thin arguments, rather than just saying "yeah, i see what you're getting at and you have a point".....he simply cannot do that. thats shitty and immature and a recipe for aggravation.....

and yes, now that i know what he's all about and understand there's no use combatting him, i will choose to coexist peacefully with him here. took me a while to figure out his shtick.

Nibbs is a great guy. One of the best posters on this site. He provides very useful statistics and he has always been good to me. If you don't like what he does, ignore him. The only thing he is "guilty" of is giving it back when someone attacks him. I don't see the problem there.

I'm not going after anyone. I'm going after fake numbers.

When we are discussing the numbers KISS pulls in today as a stand-alone act, he tries to slip in European and festival numbers. That's disingenuous, and purposeful. I will respond to that stuff, and it says something when some people feel it is wrong to do so.

I largely agree with your thoughts here, however, what exactly is Nibbs in violation of? The guy provides a ton of stats largely to pump up the current line-up and digs his heels in when challenged. Sure, he doesn't seem to ever concede an inch, but what exactly is the violation? Seems to me the violators are those who really chose to make things personal with him.


This is how I see it. Nibs does his thing, is attacked continuously - even in threads he isn't participating in. Some should really just put him on "ignore."

For sure my reading here is more enjoyable thanks to that ignore button.

But you’d miss out on some entertainment though? Nibbsy’s a heel, he enjoys generating some heat. All you humanoids need to realise that!
