    I don't know if this will be moved or closed but i might as well give this a try.

    I just want to say enough with the posts of how sick you are getting of the wait, how they are assholes for making us wait this long and keep silent, etc. etc. We are all sick of the wait, and it seems everyday there is a new topic somewhere of how sick someone is of it. So just stop complaining about it. While you are waiting, sitback really listen to the 1st six albums, you will still hear new things you havent heard before. OR learn a new VH song on the guitar or piano or drums, or whatever. All of that will make you appreciate Van Halen more, and will give you something better to do and more fun than starting a new topic complaining about terrible the wait is.

    Well, I've found all of those topics to be full of well thought out and well presented arguements. Therefore, I think they're more than welcome here on Links.

    Sometimes you have to rant. Nothing wrong with having strong feelings about the band.

    Well here's an idea. How about we start a thread just to complain about the wait? That would take away 12 topics a day and still give people a chance to rant all they want [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I would say (and it's just one fool's opinion) that the ranting topics are fine, though they are probably better suited to the Opinions Forum as opposed to here in Main.

    Personally, I'd rather see someone intelligently express their displeasure as opposed to leaving the Links altogether.

    Glenn do we have to make this 15 rounds?? LOL! JK

    No i see your points and respect them. Maybe I should have put this under the pet peeves in Non, instead of starting a new topic LOL

    But honestly if someone would leave the links just because they cant start a topic to complain about the band, and the wait, most likely they are hotheaded, uptight, and probably just complain alot in most of their posts anyways, so let them go. But I really cant see anyone leaving for that reason.

    Let's leave our petty trash talking elsewhere. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    The thing is, we've had many members exit stage left to parts unknown ( [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]) which is unfortunate. So any members who stay here, but want to express frustration, I say have at it.

    I've been a little more critical of VH lately myself, they certainly don't walk on water. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Now let's argue over ballads some more. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I've got to say, it's disheartening to read thread after thread about "the wait." Yeah, it's annoying.

    Who said it wasn't?

    No one likes it, and everyone is entitled to complain, but how many threads do we need about how long of a wait it is?

    Here is a thought. What is there to be impatient about? An new CD that has up to now only been assumed and speculated by some media and (mainly) the fans? Hardly an argument to be pissed off at Van Halen about. They have broken no promises, they have never said anything about a new CD, or a new/old singer for that matter. Yes Dweezil said this, and this person said that, hints were dropped at NAMM, but up to now there has been absolutely nothing officialy said about anything, only assumptions by fans on boards such as this one.
    Life is something that happens when your planning something else.

    Unchained Wolfie, there is nothing wrong with a little ranting and raving about waiting for the band. At least it's a true feeling and not some made up rumor (see the Pleasure Dome). Yesterday, I had written about my frustration with my favorite band. It has been the only time that I have done that. It wasn't a bash on the band but just some feelings that I had. I'm sorry if you don't like to read them. Very simply, just skip over them. Just remember, we are here as fans of Van Halen.

    Seriously, if the trend in discussion around here is any indication, the best title that could give TNA is "The Wait... Is Over"
