My opinion is that he is not.
I don't know who you're grouping in that "you guys". It's certainly not me, and I don't see anybody giving him god-like status. Although drummer went too far in his assessment I just thought, along with most anyone else who read it, that your statement "take away his videos and he's just a regular poster" was an asinine thing to say.

In all fairness, that is a pretty loose example of sucking someone's balls. Given your history with spence and all. I have no problem with you, but Josh has a bit of a point. This whole discussion is a good example of what he is talking about.

What can I say? I like to argue in extremes...

That is impressive. Each sentence in this paragraph amounts to its own, distinct, logical fallacy. I'm not sure its possible to make a more meritless post if you were actually trying to do so.

I think I'd probably have a stronger opinion about the BillysTV thing if his videos weren't still easily accessible on youtube. Kind of makes it a non-issue to me.

On a side note, I love the general antagonistic tone of the "Welcome Back" thread.

It's like that movie Fallen -- Spence touched someone on the way out the door and his spirit lives on.

But when the guy is solely responsible for 90% of the live videos floating around out there... he's just as important to this band's success as all the tapers of the early 90s...

Its kind of nice to have that around...
OK... that might be a bit over the top. The guy contributes something worthwhile is my point.

Right now I'd say Spence >> Justin. Spence actually delivered a good debate at times, even if it had the constant undertone of "I'm right but I'll suffer your idiocy."

Well if I'm gonna continually get called Spence jr or whatever, might as well act the part.

Because the fact is I don't really care. Josh.0 can keep up his sad obsession with constantly talking about it but his self inflated opinion is worthless to me. He's just a random guy on a DMB message board who thinks he's a comedian.

Ok, I don't know what you guys have going on, I was just talking about this thread/discussion. Being this upset about it is caring about it while tanking on others for caring too much (and I'd bet this whole thing is being relayed elsewhere..with people reiterating that they don't care and people who take this seriously are lame). That and the same overstatements that people may being making about billys are implied with the loss of spence...what will the board do...but I might be mixing threads.

It's insanity.

I'm not sorry Fiddy's gone. Trying to have a reasonable conversation with him was near impossible. So, for me, his contributions were slight. What's there to miss?

Work is getting in the way of things for me. I've been gone for the past 3 days and come back to find Spence is no longer around and then get to enjoy some of the back reading of this thread.

I can't really criticize I suppose. I did the same thing when I was his age. I had a crap job which meant I spent most of my day on the boards (regardless how little time each post takes to make racking up that many posts means you are here all day) and I was mostly a dick...I get it.

Oh, Spence is gone? Good luck to him, I suppose.

I get it as well. You may or may not remember me on Amidreaming. I posted just as monstrously as he did, although I wasn't quite as much an ass as he. (My revisionist history probably.) But it's still a pain having to deal with it all these years later when I've mostly grown out of such nonsense.

Hindsight's a bitch.
