    Ok, first of all this ain't a anti- Van Halen thread. What I'm suggesting is for, like, 3 days, everyone not post on any VH or VH related board(The Army, Sammy sites, etc.)

    Maybe this would catch their attention and then they might give us some real information. Give VH a taste of what it would really feel like for fans to forget them. Right now they don't know what it is like to be forgotten. They have all these VH sites and related sites talking about them 24/7 and stroking their egos constanly . Ya, maybe they don't vist the various sites much but I bet my prosthetic left nut that their little ass-kissing assistants do and would report to them about the boycott.

    I know it would be hard for some of you with no lives outside of cyber-world (DIF, LOL J/K) but what they hey, now you can practice actually talking and interacting to a flesh and blood human face to face for a few days. So what do ya guys say? Can ya suck it up for 3 days and not talk about VH with someone. I'm not guaranteeing that this will work buuuuutt, you never know; this might just shake them up enough to give us some real info. on the status of the band.
    Maybe all the sites can put up a banner that says something like, "No news; No Fans!"

    Well, this was just a thought and maybe a futile and stupid thought at that, but it wouldn't hurt to try. What do we have to lose? VH not talkin' to us?

    Whats the point? Theres no evidence to suggest they are reading the boards anyway.

    All you'll be achieving is costing the boards ad revenue from lost banner displays.

    VH doesn't care about the fan sites, no point punishing them when you're mad at VH.

    Boycotting the PD would be the only logical effort, but I don't think the band cares about that either, so what's the point?

    The point is to get the band's attention, not to punish the fans. VH fans are the greatest in the world, too bad the band doesn't realize this and show us some respect. It was just an idea. I thought maybe some of you would have the balls to go thru with but...oh, well, fuck it.

    I can't do it by myself. I need your help, Glenn. I would even take MikeL's help, lame as it may be. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] If we would just all unite, we could change the world. But you have to be willing to take that first step. And that's what I'm here for, to help you take that first step and free yourself from the tyranny that is complacency.

    I appreciate the help Gully.

    By the way, speaking of complacency, what did you find out when you called the California Child Welfare people about getting Wolfie out of that terribly abusive home he's living in?

    Or was that just a good idea as long as it didn't require you to actually do anything. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I guess with this boycott, you've moved onto more important matters. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    Good lord, why don't you perform your own boycott man. Hurting the fan boards is not going to accomplish ANYTHING VG! If you don't like that then go create your own VH board and boycott it. Just a suggestion. BTW, I hope you posted this on the the other boards you mentioned. I'm sure they love that idea as much as we do here. [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]
