However you might not be able to expect to receive the same protection or treatment if you express an opinion which is opposite to someone elses in the work lunch room or a restaurant or bar or anywhere else people are having discussions face to face (which I think of as the "real" world as opposed to sitting in the comfort of my own home typing on a keyboard where my identity is somewhat obscured).
That isn't what you said in your previous post. You said that in the real world 'no one cares' about the survivors' decisions. This has been the line of the pro 3.0 crowd from day one; they're doing it, whether you like it or not. Suck it up. It's eerily similar to 'Trump won. Suck it up, snowflakes'.

People who think I would be A-OK with the Eagles continuing if it were only Deacon just don't get it.

It's not the Eagles without Glenn Frey.

Notice that sentence does not say "It's not the Eagles without someone related to Glenn Frey."

Geez.

Freypower, no one in the real world does care whether or not you or I or anyone else support or don't support the band's decisions. It is also true that Don, Joe and Timothy along with Vince and Deacon have gone forward whether anyone else thinks they should or not. Acknowledging those two things doesn't make a person either for or against the band. At this time, I am neither completely pro or con on their choices. I have seen some thoughts that I consider equally valid on both sides. I have not yet been to a show since 2015. Even though there are currently tickets for sale in my area at two venues, I haven't yet decided whether I will purchase or not. I don't ever publically discuss politics and this is certainly not the proper forum for it anyway. I also can't relate to the comparison between the recent US presidential election and the topic of this thread. I expressed appreciation to Soda for her efforts and understanding and somehow others now want to question the meaning of and criticize my statements. That is to be expected when you post to a public forum.

I made a comparison between the attitudes of Trump supporters & 3.0 supporters. I said they were similar. I was not discussing politics per se.

WKMB55 - I think the statement I bolded is not necessarily true. I bet there have been tons of pro vs con arguments/conversations over this. If you decide to go see them be prepared to pay a fortune for tickets. I have checked prices and they are selling front row seats at some venues for $1,640.00 - which is more that tickets for the HOTE tour. Poor Buffy had wanted to attend their concert in Columbus,Ohio but the tickets were too expensive for her and her family. This is one of the many things people have against this whole thing. It is pure greed to charge that amount of money. Just one more example of Don going against his word when he stated it would be "pure greed" to get back together.

NKIT currently at the two venues I am considering, there are floor seats available about 18 rows from the front as well as first level seats close to both sides of the stage for about $300. These tickets are not part of a VIP package and are not resale. Although I don't make it a habit of buying tickets that cost $300 or more, I have done so on several occasions for other concerts, Broadway plays, college bowl games or professional sporting events. I still am not sure that this is something I want to see.

Even those who innocently claim curiosity about matters that have been dealt with in this thread after their arrival, as if they haven't already read the answer to that very loaded question.



There's also the zealots like EIK who don't want there to be even one thread where people who don't like the current situation aren't being told off, and have made it their mission to do so regularly.

Oh, and FYI: L101 didn't start this thread. I started this thread. I moved her post from "Eagles Mentions in the Press" and retitled it to merge it with steve_e_dee's thread and keep everything on the same topic together. Initially, it discussed whether or not the band reforming was a good idea before we knew for sure it was going to happen. Now that everything has changed with the band situation, the purpose of this thread has changed, too.

So in case anyone is wondering, this thread has become the venue for people who aren't happy about the current line-up to express themselves. It is not a venue for browbeating those who aren't into the band continuing, nor is it a venue for crap-stirrers who are looking for a fight to come and rile everybody up.

Edited to add: There are some exceptions from the pro camp who post in this thread, I know. It just seems like those exceptions are not nearly as prolific as the antagonistic posters.
Exactly. EIK is just a pot-stirrer.

The venue I saw the front row ticket for $1,640.00 was not a VIP package. It was the actual price of a ticket. I read on Eagles FL FB page that they are not doing VIP packages for the up coming tours. $300.00 is not that bad a price but I can see Billy Joel at MSG for that same price(which I hope to do next year).

And I have strong opinions on which side is being most "passive-aggressive" and making others needlessly defend themselves, but I won't share them this early on a Sunday.
Your post IS passive-aggressive, EIK. "I have strong (negative) opinions about "you", but out of consideration of you, I won't share them". That is passive-aggressive, EIK. That's basically what you are implying. It's highly ironic if you ask me. JMO.

It's like those who preface something with "no offense" and then say something blantly offensive. As if we are just supposed to suck it up and take it. No thanks.

Not true....also I can understand FP's comment. You don't have to acknowledge any of it. There is a reason "Not MY President" exists. You don't have to accept it.
