    Late night...thinking too hard or not enough maybe.

    The obvious answer is that a certain webmaster saw how popular UBB message boards were and wanted to steal the thunder. Probably this is a partial answer.

    But....why now? Given the (non)events of the last year and the number of hits that vh.com gets, it must have been obvious that the PD was going to be deluged with users. And 95% of them are pretty much there for one reason - new news. And with that comes the "insiders" - BS undoubtedly knows about that because of the Sherman incident over here.

    Whether he's genuine or not, something like a Michael Jackson was bound to happen. He's allowed to keep posting stuff at the official site which for whatever reason the band won't admit or deny. Yet FORD gets banned for something really minor and petty so it's clear that BS is paying attention to what is happening there. Then there's the new VH on napster thread which got DELETED not closed.

    So some rumours can stay and some can't.....weird. The MJ stuff has made it to various music news websites without being quoshed. And it's perpetuated from the band's official site....indirectly but freely. Umm.....I don't really believe MJ is really an insider but......didn't Sherman leave right around the time the PD started??

    Now we've had two cryptic messages from the day in history thing at vh.com....one may have been careless. The second was either malicious or for a purpose.

    Oh yeah, has anyone heard from TK since the 'new' DLR track was relased to the world?

    Time for bed......

    LOL!!!

    Class act they got running over there. I can't believe Van Halen would ever want to be associated with crap like that. We need to get the boys to check out VHF. They'll get an idea of how a discussion forum should be run.

    I dunno...the PD is going pretty much as I would expect. The whole 'feel' of it is very much the 'got milk' era yet if DLR is coming back you'd expect more of a JD feel. And if DLR isn't coming back - allowing the rumours to fly at the official site seems like career suicide....though without DLR there isn't much chance of a lucrative future for VH anyway IMO.

    It's still weird in the middle of the day

    Someone posted that two new VH tracks were on Napster - but listed as a name from the VH3 sleeve rather than as VH. The thread was deleted but I know Grant managed to get a napster address from the guy which didn't work.....don't know what happened after that.

    There was also speculation here (in the rumor mill) that it was just someone trying to promote their own band.

    Magic Eight Ball foresaw the whole thing. He knew that the 'pooping' thread would pop up, but he didn't know why. So, the question was asked: Why does Brad allow this?

    Looking deep into my belly, I see the answer come up......"Brad allows people to discuss not pooping because he, too, is full of shit."

    Magic Eight Ball has again spoken.

    Jonathan,

    Thanks for the info. I can see how I might have missed the PD thread (too many BS topics to wade through them all)...but I even missed it in the Rumor Mill over here. I must get my eyes checked.
