Not sure I get that. No one was forcing them to venture into nDMBc.
Yeah, agreed. I think if you're actually letting something on an internet message board get to you, you're taking it too seriously. That would go for spence or any other poster or post.

Also I think most of the people that don't come here anymore are people that just hoped off the DMB express train.
The spence PAC talking points.

This is a pretty terrible argument. Whether or not they were "fit for a message board" doesn't have anything to do with whether the message board would be better off with them active. Copperpot being the ultimate example.

I hope you realize how stupid that sentence is. Not trying to pick a fight but that is a terrible argument.

Spence may have been one person but the dude was relentless about certain things. One person can absolutely ruin something for someone else.

It's "Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln" logic.

Eh, that's only part true. I agree if you get really butthurt all the time from a single person, message boards (and pretty much life) isn't for you. I did slow down reading the forums though for awhile when he had the highest # of posts in almost every single thread... and usually twice as much as the 2nd highest poster in that thread. I'm sure I'm exaggerating- but it felt like this forum became 50% of his opininon, 25% of users arguing with him or defending themselvs, and 25% the rest normal conversation. The lowest point was when people started putting disclaimers before all their opinions before they posted

I agreed with most of what he posted, and thought it was funny how butthurt people got sometimes. But I don't wanna read one persons opinion 65,000+ fucking times

Mersh hit the nail on the head.

Spence and the Spence PAC were great at pointing out people who took the Internet too seriously...until you started piling on one of them or shared an opinion they didn't like. Then suddenly the Internet was SERIOUS BUSINESS.

He could just easily create an alter, couldn't he? Though I don't think that would be his style.

wut? That's a ridiculous thing to say. Yeah, take away Babe Ruth's baseball ability and he was just a fat guy. Obviously, the videos are Jay's significant contribution.

I love when people say stuff like this. Like in baseball, "take away the first 3 months and he was pretty average this season", yeah but um those 3 months happened and count. Or take away that they played Blue Water, Last Stop, Typical, Recently, and Two Step and it was a meh show. Why do people take away pretty significant actual things and then try to re-assess? So silly.

I've always wondered the same thing. Especially in baseball arguments. People cherry pick data all the time to support their argument.

"Well, Buchholz IS an elite pitcher. Take away the four months on the DL and you have one of the best pitchers in baseball..."

Well, no shit Einstein, but unfortunately you have to PLAY consistently to be considered among the best. Otherwise you're just among the best of those who don't play consistently which isn't helpful over the course of 162 regular reason games and upwards of 20 playoff games.

Ergo,

Take away the 34,986 videos that he's put together for not only this community, but all of the band's fandom out there...

and he's just another guy that buys tickets to the shows....

Spence is a very conscientious poster.*
