    Over the last few years... I can't recall a single insider post on any of the boards that has proven true. Kinda hard to verify if any of the information was true or if things changed on a proverbial dime... mainly cause nothing has truely happened.

    I notice a common reaction to thses posts is pretty much a Yosemite Sam approach... come in guns a blastin and shoot first ask questions later.

    While I know it's been a real pisser to be stuck on this rollercoaster perpetually. So the Yosemite Sam approach is perfectly natural and appropriate... I got to thinking there must not be too many fishermen here on the boards.

    Now you're saying WTF???

    Bear with me on the analogy a moment... when something strikes your line... 1st thing you do is set the hook. The adrenaline is pumping... Then you keep that line tight so it won't throw the hook and get away. As you are working the beast to the surface you are savoring the moment... man against beast!! Wondering is this the big one? Then you land it!!!

    If it's the big lunker you were after you keep it and do the ceremonial dance. If it's some bottom-feeding sucker shit fish you beat it with an oar and toss it.

    Now what does this have to do w/ insider bullshit artists... simple... maybe we should learn to play them a bit. Lure them in... let em get comfy and talkative. Then when they slip up and show their true colors... then we beat the livin crap outta em with a stick, cut em up and use em for stink bait!!! [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    How about we just flame the shit out of every 1st time poster that claims to have inside info?

    99.99% of the time we'll be right to do so.

    I like those odds. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Good idea, Zah-ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Here's another one... we could find some other band's message board, then post cryptic messages like an "insider". It wouldn't accomplish anything, but we could swap posts and laugh at the gullible ones.

    On second thought... let's go with the first idea!!!

    Personally, I lump the first-time posters (i.e., rumor mongers, shit stirrers, etc.) together with those jackasses like John Edwards who claim to be a "medium" through which they can talk to dead people, and communicate messages to and from their loved ones from beyond. People like this are one step above Satan in my opinion . . . they are preying on the desperation of others who want to believe something so much, that they lose sight of common sense and logic. I've never understood how first time posters get pleasure out of what they do, time and time again.

    I agree with whoever said they should be burned at the stake

    This is what happens when dingleberries come in here and post BS.

    Linkers revolt and storm the castle!



    We then corner the bastage who started this crap...



    ...and then burn him to the ground!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I think I like that option too! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Amen brotha! I cannot stand this bastard. Uses people's emotions to make himself look like he knows what the hell he is talking about. Lessee, is there someone in the audience connected to someone that their name starts with the letter "D"? Thiswouldbeasidemalefugireonceremovedfromhismother 'sass. Anyone? The guy can talk 90 words a minute. Prick. I like your analogy about one step above satan...

    It's pretty simple. 99.9% of these rumors never have any support. They come from people who don't feel like posting a thousand times to build up "credibility" and hope that someone will believe them. As far as I'm concerned, no support means it's not true. It's no coincidence how the one rumor that had support (the whole MA thing from November) did indeed turn out to be true.

    Agreed the Nov thing had a very distinct difference. No 1st time posters and folks repeating directly what they heard from Mike's mouth.

    I'll stick with my fishing antics... and you guys are correct... 99.9% of the time toast the suckers and roast marshmellons!!!
