    for real, well said. That's part of why dnbforum is great .. its a double edged sword I guess cos you know the top players wanna see what peeps saying about things on the net, but there is a lot of crap said that doesnt do anyone any good.

    anyway, respectz

    He gets paid to say things, so he wants to make his opinion sound important, just part of the radio biz.

    I think he's right though - there is too much non-constructive criticism on DOA/Banana. It's okay not to like somthing - just don't blag about it without being nice and constructive. And for god's sake, if those tossers really hate new dnb that much, they need to get in the studio and do it there damn selves!

    well personally i think that fabio is a twat for saying that out loud, coz the man has no respect for freedom of speech. but imho even with all the slagging and haterade there is equally much love and respect. personally i dont really give a ratsfuck what sum other person thinks bout something, i have my own oppinion and im gonna stick to it (if its wrong then i might listen to what others say). but overall what i want to say there is smth called internet freedom and free speech and everyone has the right to their own oppinion. if they want to slack, then let them slack, their is always the possibility to ignore this braindead fuck...

    its almost like that i luv twisted individuals every tune (even if they are crap), i know a shitload of people who just wanna cuss him & call his style klownstep :lol: ... i just dont care!

    :ban: fabio! :uberlaugh

    I don't know about DOA, but the feedback people get from the DnBA forum totally sucks.

    On the net you'll get freedom of speech and you can't fight that, so there'll never be an end to it as that's the nature of the net.

    A lot of the haters have no real impact on things anyway, as they sit at home, don't go out because they don't like the nights and don't buy the vinyl so nobody loses.
    While I do have an issue with big names being lazy sometimes and not giving it 100% in the club which is a fair thing to complain about you also got to be able to back up your complaints by trying to make a difference.

    The comments on nigh on every track on dnbarena degenerate into arguments and slagging matches which leads me to think if they removed them it'd be far better, as I don't think artists and labels have anything to gain by reading the unconstructive feedback left there.

    I think the DJs need to just ignore the bullshit and focus only on constructive criticism but the armchair pundits need to shut the fuck up (like that's ever going to happen in my lifetime)

    I can't listen to it, I'm at school. A transcript perhaps?

    Well if hes dissing DOA then thats super IMOP. Its actually amazing that message board is suppose to be about dnb music. I thought it was about porn and beer and homophobia, like a message board for Comedy Central's "The Man Show".

    Apparently most american men (according to the man show) are sexist and enjoy wishing they had a toilet shaped like a public swimming pool so they can "drop the kids off at the pool". :p

    I had a brief discussion about how lame the man show is today with my psychology professor before I left. funny :)

    Yeah I heard that Fabio File, thats a keeper. I named it "Fabio_hates_DOA.mp3" :slayer:

    I remember there was one post on how the Catholic church was f'ed up. I must have rolled my eyes so much that I went dizzy without spinning myself endlessly.

    I actually gave that forum a shot, but it made my computer crash twice. Having said all that, "The Grid" is a helpful board.

    as everyone keeps saying "freedom of speech", you have the right, fabio has the right. He made a valid point and he's right stop hating start creating
