Oh, here we go again, YEF. I knew this post was coming. You're true to form.

The YEF posting model:

1. Post something argumentative / controversial.

2. Make a few more argumentative posts, stoking the flame.

3. Once it gets heated, apologize profusely and say you didn't mean to upset anyone.

4. Cry foul when people are still upset with you, point to your apology/apologies as proof of your innocence, and complain how unfair everyone is to you.

Rinse and repeat.

It's happened too many times to be due to ignorance at this point. You're no longer a newbie. Some of us are onto you, and have lost patience with you. Your apologies now seem insincere, and your controversial statements now come off as trolling... at least to me. Tread carefully.

Your queston was:

Iím just curious but had Glenn wanted the band to move on without him with Deacon replacing him, would the anti 3.0 side be ok with this? Or would you think that any group without Glenn calling themselves the Eagles would be wrong?

I replied:

Maybe slightly more ok with this happening, but I still wouldn't personally think of the band as "Eagles". And musically I'd still have zero interest. I'm not sure about the first thing I said ("this happening"), but I'm sure about the other two (band name/interest musically).

So you don't reply to every comment, that's fine. I don't remember which "pro-3.0" person asked the previous questions I was referring to.

It's more beautiful there, to be frank.
I'm impressed by your honesty and how you're unafraid to reveal something like this about your true self. I don't see this kind of stuff often in the internet.

Thanks. I won't be dwelling on this any further.

Thanks Soda, I appreciate the clarification about the origins / purpose of this thread and hope it won't be necessary again.

As you pointed out, newbies can be forgiven for alot. But this isn't that. For all the reasons you cited and perhaps one more: trolls typically promise to leave voluntarily. Few do. It's not in their DNA. The proof is in the pudding.

I thought the very same thing, chaim, about WalshFan88's honesty about how he felt.

It's just such a part of me. I'm a pretty closed off person. I don't let many people in my circle lol. When reality gets tough, I try to deal with it, get it out of the way, and then retreat to my head. It's a blessing and a curse. A blessing in that I can distract myself with the thought of something better. I've also fought negative thoughts for years, which is the curse part I guess. I fight it a lot but I'm a big believer in meditation and/or some type of relaxation strategy that involves just shutting everything out and staying in your head and visualize things to help yourself clear your mind. I also think it's very healthy to do so, not wrong.

I think a lot of people are afraid to be imaginative, etc for fear of feeling crazy or feeling like they are too "realistic" for it or it's a sign of a crazy person. Not true.

As far as sharing things online, I'm muuuuuch more social, open, and comfortable online because I most often don't know these people and those who do know me from here, well I'm ok with them knowing this. The others, really I will never know so it's not a problem. I'm more likely to share things online than in person. I'm kind of like the person in the song Desperado. I have fences. I've been burned too many times to just let them down for anyone. I'm ok with being me.

YEF, you say that you want to try to understand our viewpoint. There are literally 200+ pages on this thread, most of the posts underline quite well our viewpoints of those of us against 3.0. I don't know how to explain it any better for you.

You also say you are going to leave, but never do and you try to spin it so that we're the bad ones. I'm starting to smell a troll. You aren't the only one.

Either stick with it, or (preferably) don't. But the wishy washy leave and come back gets old.

Like I said, you say you want to understand us better, but we can't make it any more clear. If you even just read a few pages, you'll get the jist quite quickly.
