    I like coming over here and reading the latest rumor. Whether it was heard from a local Dj, entertainment reporter or the cousin of a friend that I used to know. There is a difference between a rumor and an outright lie.

    I was here when some guy was swearing up and down that David Coverdale was the new singer. For god sake that even made it as far as being mentioned on MTV's site where it was also debunked. That guy never posted here again. There have been other occurrences recently that mirror this unfortunate time in VH Forum history.

    The question is why make up a total fabrication? You will not get fame and respect from your fellow posters for doing so. On the contrary, everything posted by an "ousted" liar, will be attacked and scrutinized. Why post something that is an outright lie? Most people that post a rumor here preface it by saying' "This is most likely B.S. but here it is!".

    P.S. Wasn't sure if this is where I should post this but since it pertained to this forum....

    You got a point there ETRIGAN.

    The reason for this kind of BS lying is:

    our favourite band has done nothing to discuss about since 1999 (whe GC left).

    I would love nothing else, than to chat about the latest single released in Japan, outlook of the new video on MTV etc.. Unfortunately we donīt have the single or video

    You hit the nail on the head ETRIGAN. Unfortunately, there are some folks who have nothing better to do in life then to make up stories and post them on the internet. That's America for you.

    One of the biggest BS artists we ever had here hailed from Europe (TBS)

    But yeh. I dunno exactly wtf the point is. Its not like you'd head down the pub and brag bout spamming a board with fake rumors. Seems to be a fairly sad and loney pursuit!

    I hope. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I think the reason that people post the lies (or anything that's likely to inflame the board population) is simply to get a negative reaction. You see that on the internet all the time. People doing to strangers in an anonymous fashion what they would never dare to do in a face-to-face situation.

    Remember the weird kid down the street when you were 10 that liked to pull the legs of spiders, fry ants with a magnifying glass, and "blow up" frogs with a straw? Now he's on the internet posting lies to your favourite board.

    The story telling by these Composters is just a simple ploy to gain attention to themselves. They live a pathetic life and the only way they can acertain any selfesteem is to fabricate events that make their wanna-be fantasy fulfill the emptyness of their poser existence.
