I have to say though, one of the reasons I don't listen in too often anymore is because the promised "Fun Stuff" failed to appear.

Ok I've heard 3 versions of that drat Flash! (Aaaaaaaaaaaa-ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) song today. Queen, some weird version, and then a brief Japanese version. It feels like some kind of new rickroll. It just keeps popping up when I least expect it, including those commercials for whatever.

And now Prussian Blue is singing about Valhalla again! Hooray!

I think his point is that you're still hearing DJ Magnetic Dozer but not so much the original post-rave that DJ Magnetic Dozer is a response to.

And I know the reason: crybaby admins.

Yes, crybaby pansy fascist admins who censor songs. Oh you didn't know that? Of course, that's cause they won't tell you.

When I first came here in 2004, i liked it. The freedom to play whatever music I feel like for others to listen to. Seemed like an awesome idea. And it was, hell it was pretty much a haven. Then the second incarnation began and faggots began to gently caress with that idea and unfortunately, it's been ruined forever.

Yeah, that's right admins, I'm calling you out!

First off, BalthCat. You loving whiny pansy bitch. First of all, why would I ever add Leonard Cohen? I don't care for his music. That's right, some people don't have the same taste in music you do. Shocking, isn't it? What's even more shocking is some people actually like songs that you claim are "troll mp3s!" Maybe you should change your name to BalthPussy because that's what you are, a loving pussy!

Speaking of pussies, Jormagund. Yeah I hear you don't like being called a pussy. Well, I got a protip for you. If you don't want to be called a pussy, then don't act like one! Pussy.

Beelzebozo, I remember what you said when you unjustly banned me for bullshit reasons. You said that the station would be more fun for more listeners without me. Well, let's see. I remember an average of 40 listeners when that happened. Look at it now...you struggle to get more than 20! Yeah, that's really been working out well for you hasn't it? Oh, u mad? U mad? Yeah keep being mad, I'm just gonna keep LOLin' cause you know I'm right!

Maybe people stopped listening cause they realized that the Home of Dongs has become the Home of Double Standards. And nobody wants that. GBS stands for General Bullshit, does it not? As in, anything goes, play whatever you want. Hell you advertized the station as such. But what you really run it as is Specific Bullshit. As in, only play songs that you pansies "get." That's why you hear more of that poseur Magnetic Dozer than the real post-rave, because you are too loving closed-minded to really appreciate it for the art that it is.

I know what you're gonna say too. You're gonna call it "complete poo poo" and say "oh wah wah wah it's made to troll me wah wah." First of all, who's to say what is and is not complete poo poo. What's poo poo to you might be genius to me, and vice versa. I thought for sure you all would realize that different people have different tastes but of course that concept is too much for your thick heads. And made to troll? Yeah, well I can say the same thing about Merzbow. Think about it, his music is just a bunch of white noise and unpleasant sounds that are made to gently caress with people. The only difference is you don't censor him. So why censor post-rave because that's the same kind of thing! Because you "get" Merzbow but you don't "get" post-rave? That's a cop-out excuse and you know it and I know it.

And those of you who deny DJ Salinger or Broseph are the gentrifiers of Post-Rave (yeah I'm talking to you too Peachstapler...oops, I mean "DJ Magnetic Dozer.") I find parallels between this and the jazz movement in America in the 20th century. You are the house-negroes of the movement, taking the genre and dumbing it down for the masses of GBS FM. At the same time, the banning and hellbanning of the true proprietors of Post-Rave culture continues unchecked.

The true innovators are shut down because the Man finds their music offensive and challenging to their understanding of music. They don't want to have to reconsider their notions of what is and is not music; so, they let the genre dig its own grave in a fetid graveyard of genericism and farce - proprieted by a group of half-wits, like a group of baboons rolling around in their own filth. It's sickening.

In conclusion, goon radio is dead and your crybaby fascism killed it. Congratu-fuckin-lations. Maybe next time you'll think before you censor songs and users just because YOU don't "get" it.

No peace out.

You snogged Madame de Pompadour?
Good for you!

Hell, we gave you a ton of chances. We only hellbanned you at the start, because you had interesting adds in between your hilarious attempts at trolling the playlist, the problem was that your trolling was taking over the fun, so we asked you to scale it back. You didn't, and got hellbanned for a week.

When you came back, you went right back at it, I guess in some kind of deluded "I am fighting the power!" moment, like you're having right now.

So we hellbanned you again.

Clearly you have a learning disability, because you jumped back in when you got back and I permabanned you.


That's when you made the Christina Carmi account, which was found out very quickly, because you are a stupid motherfucker.

So, yeah. You're kinda dumb, bro.

Edit: I feel I should point this out, Beelzebozo didn't ban you, never did. I did most of those hellbans and I like you, puffery. You were just incredibly unfunny towards the end and needed reeling in. Unfortunately you decided to go swim at the deep end and got permabanned instead.

We all agreed on the permaban, though.

(I proceed as I always do, unwisely assuming-even when I believe otherwise-that what I'm reading is sincere.) I assume that this is directed at me on the assumption that I won't read it (oops), or that I'll overreact when I do (oops). I have absolutely no idea what this is about, so I am having trouble getting riled up. I've forgotten what account parachuted/cloned to Shotgun Jones, and I have no idea why Leonard Cohen's been brought up. I don't recall chatting with (or haranguing) Shotgun Jones, let alone about Leonard Cohen. (Leonard Cohen IS lovely, but I am not known as a particularly ardent Leonard Cohen fan, nor is Cohen's music representative of most of what I add.)

Shotgun, sincere or not, is likely not actually trying to communicate with me, but rather influence the general public. I will do the unwise again, as I always do, and feed the troll by responding seriously.

Consider the fact I'm an inclusionist (a la Wikipedia) and a forgiver. I am actually a very ban-conservative moderator for songs and users alike. I frequently add, and unban, long songs. I believe that as long as there's a cowbell in the background, it counts as music. I argued that the replay cooldown should be shorter than it currently is. I still suspect that some of GBSfm's original value to me and others was the frequent playing of Developers! and Find the Cat.

While I do believe that post-rave is primarily a troll, or at least some form of self-absorbed "avantgarde musician" e-cosplay, the BalthCat painted by Shotgun Jones does not stand up to the briefest of examinations.

I did have cat-ears on G1, so I saw myself as BalthNeko-Chan. I guess he couldn't be all wrong.

Edit: I've been informed you're Puffery. Additionally for full disclosure I WILL admit to saying "Metal suxxx." because it amuses me, and once made Kuuenbu spaz out as a result, but it's never meant in true ill will. (Not like my utter hatred for Wesley Willis and R. Kelly.)
