    This guy on the VHML posted this. What do you think?

    another scott

    "...From: "Dalsh 327" <dalsh327@hotmail.com>
    Subject: Ban Halen

    Until we can be dancing the night away on a hot July night, lighting up the
    sky with the Diamond one on stage and Ed blazing the guitars with the
    backbeat of Alex and the thump of Mike's bass, Ban Halen.
    Until they know that the fans mean business, Ban Halen....Don't buy any
    products, request any songs, buy any CDs that will go to their retirement
    and pension funds, while they laugh at us the whole time. Their "don't give
    a shit" attitude has worn thin big time.
    From Sunset Blvd to the Big Apple, I want this to take effect. Van Halen
    fans have a right to be pissed off, because they are fleecing us big time
    with these remasters, making money off the people they laugh at, their fans.
    If you don't think so, you're blind. If it doesn't work, it's because you
    didn't try and say "what can one person do?". It takes a village of idiots
    like us to make it work.
    If some old lady complains about what she's hearing on the radio, the
    FCC takes note, don't they? And this is one person. Van Halen is now making
    their money off of the past, which they have said that they're not "all
    about making money off the past". I supported them for a long time until
    they told fans "fuck you" when it came to mentioning anything about a
    reunion. What kind of appreciation is that of people who paid for your
    houses and cars? Yes, it's nothing new, but enough already.
    There can be all kinds of ways to make a point. Send your used CDs,
    records and cassettes of VH to Warners with a letter saying that you no
    longer support VH, at least until they quit or get Dave back, retire the
    band, or at least say what they are doing. Warners are already spazzing out
    about Napster, losing sales and royalty payments. This will only drive the
    point further home.

    Let Linda Bracero, Carina Capiendo, Carl Scott, Todd Steinman,
    Tucker Williamson and Scotty Ross know how we feel. Please send any
    Van Halen material you possess to:
    Warner Bros. Records Inc.
    3300 Warner Boulevard
    Burbank, California 91505-4694
    (818) 846-9090
    Let James Brown, Hartley Peavey, Bill Xavier at Peavey know that
    we no longer support their business due to Van Halen's treatment and
    attitude towards their fans. The address is:
    Peavey Electronics Corporation
    711 A Street-Meridian, MS 39301
    Customer Phone 1-877-732-8391
    Fax 601-486-1278
    I am still a fan of Van Halen, but feel that they have grown
    way too pretentious for their own good. Until they make an announcement, Ban
    Halen.... please send this message to any VH-related sites as you wish..."

    Another person complaining that Van Halen owes them something. Has it been five minutes already. Anybody can do whatever they want to do, I don't care. I'm not banning Van Halen.

    I refuse to ban Halen. It's not entirely their fault for the silence, you know.

    They've given us over 20 years of great music--we should give 'em a break so they can crank out a great album. This is a normal wait, if you think about it...the dude who originally wrote that is WAY off...

    Right Now, teenybopper trash doesn't stand a chance.
    Right Now, MTV has no idea what happens when rabid Van Halen fans have their favorite band insulted.
    Soon Enough, they'll learn the hard way.

    Hey---while we're at it, why not SUE the band for the cost of concert tickets, and for the time lost and wasted by going to their concerts, the time spent ever listening to Van Halen, and for the irreversible damage caused to all of us by being tainted by the evil messages in their music. Hey---first CD, first track mentions the devil, so they should have to pay restitution to all the Christians they offended. And let's not forget to sue them for the damage they've done to the environment by painted instruments, shoes on stage, possible hair spray use (CFC's are a no-no). Oops, don't forget the damages to our hearing. How about Britney Spears suing Edward for disgracing her by showing up at her concert. Wow--the list goes on and on.

    Do you think this guy will actually persuade one single person? I think not!

    I don't favor a boycott at this time. But I would be curious to know how many VH fans will be "sheep" and continue to support the band (including DLR) if we learn that there was no reunion attempted or that it died months ago and no one associated with the group had the integrity to be honest with the fans and "officially" crush the rumours that have kept us hanging on for months?

    I don't think we should ban them per se, but it would be nice to somehow let them know how we feel.

    I mean, what would happen if they released a new cd and nobody cared?

    Def Leppard had a huge fanbase, released a new cd, (a real good one, too) Nobody cared.

    Having DLR back would spark some interest, but who knows? When KISS reformed, it was huge, but interest dwindled real fast.

    I'm not comparing VH to those bands, I'm just using them as examples. Other than here, and a select few other internet sites, nobody cares about Van Halen anymore...

    If anybody is stupid enough to "ban" Van Halen in every way, then they must follow through with it all the way. This means not buying anything that they put out in the future whether it's with Dave or not.
