    I have no problem wishing him success. I am also not offended he doesnít like the website. I probably wouldnít like a site that said anything negative about me either. But unfortunately heís a celebrity and itís part of being a celebrity, and a decision he made with his life.

    Again Iím not so sure why heís singling out us or a message board in particular. I mean the abuse he seems to respond to is all on social media and itís a lot. I donít understand why he thinks we are anything like that? It seems like the real haters and assholes stalking him are on social media. But I guess not in his eyes.

    I actually have a better opinion of him now than I did before but at the same time it's still that neverending VH "antagonistic" view of the fans. They don't ever let it go.

    They cannot handle criticism. It's almost genetic.

    He's attacking the specific individuals that post insulting content, NOT the website itself.

    Yeah I still donít understand why he is so obsessed with people not liking him. Youíre a celebrity it comes with the territory. You donít see every celebrity in the world complaining about negative stuff said about them 24/7. Some celebrities are treated brutally online. Iím just not sure what he expects. Does he really expect everyone in the world is going to be a fan and like him? Theyíre not. For whatever reason. He just needs to have a thicker skin or get out of the business. End of story.

    I think I said this before. You're an only child. What tends to happen with only child, is that child is treated like the sun rises and sets from their asses. I'm not saying that was the case in your upbringing but I've witnessed this first hand.

    If you're constantly told you're the shit day in and day out and the whole world revolves around you...You're not gonna be able to handle the slightest criticism. From the time he was born and because they had tried unsuccessfully to have kids...when it happened that's it. I've seen this on FB and I've seen it in my personal life.

    which means... us.
    I would disagree there. He's got way worse comments on social media. It goes way beyond "you're fat" on social media. People asking him dumb, inappropriate, questions all the time, as well. We've seen all these things when they happen. He's never mentioned anything here, specifically, but he's always calling out someone out at other places.

    A lot of those people probably antagonize him on social media for the simple fact that he responds and escalates it. So I imagine he's probably a lot funner to troll than most celebrities.

    It's probably part of what Chris said, but I think it's a generation thing, also. He grew up in a generation where the "like button" is very important. Following, trending, likes....have changed us as a society. Not just younger people either.

    This is definitely part of it. You start showing people on social media that you got to them, for some that's chum in the water.

    My theory is the forums and message forums are home to the most dedicated fans. Maybe that is why WVH has singled out places like the VHLinks. This was around before Social media was even a thing.

    Happily he was hit with a wave of LOVE for his music and the song hit #1.

    I'm sure that has helped heal any of the psychological pain left from the nonsense he's heard since his teens...

    He's mastered the instruments, he can write, create, and can sing far better than any of us imagined.

    The music and the great fan reaction to it will help him (and us) in mourning his dad, too.

    Glad 99.99999% of the comments were loving, compassionate, and positive!

    And yet, he chooses to always focus on the 0.00001% of the comments.

    His right to do it, but it's not a good look.

    It's like the comedian...

    You can slay the room, but you notice the one guy not laughing.

    I'm glad the wave of love he is getting hit with has astonished him and helped him through these times...

    Every other celebrity is criticized on their own merits.

    Wolf got a ton of warranted and unnecessary hate just for not being Michael Anthony.
