My last rant wasn't about me being a victim. I was expressing anger about myself 
not allowing me to be myself. I referred to my initial appearance as the number one reason.
The last time I posted pictures it caused others to argue(discuss) Ripper. I was thinking here we go 
again so I deleted (all) of them. No pictures, no arguments. After I thought about it I came to the conclusion
that I'm just being a p*ssy and decided f*ck that. I'm sick of not being me. I came to the same conclusion
that you all have. That first incident is behind me and I'm not going to worry about what I post anymore.
I am going to be myself. I will not personally attack or antagonize anyone and I will try to give thought to what I post,
but I'm not going to cower anymore. As far as saying "I just want everyone to like me" I'm not sure where you
 got that from because. If you read what I wrote then you would see that I said "I don't care if anyone likes 
me anymore or not." That was the biggest part of the problem. That's the part I want to change. I was constantly 
backing down to appease everyone. Screw that. This is three posts now all stating pretty much the same thing.
I can't explain it any differently.

Yeah, For fucks sake. Stop playing such a fucking victim all the time. All this "I just want everyone to like me for who I am" shit is wearing thin. Just say what you want to say and if anyones offended that's their problem. So what if you came across as a tool when you started, no-one gives a fuck now. You're the one that keeps bringing it up. "Hey I'll just put these photos in X thread so if anyone's not interested it's not going to upset them and they won't have to come down on me like a tonne of bricks". Jesus Christ man, you've got just as much right to say whatever you want as anyone else. Stop acting like such a blouse.

Bud, this is why I told you a long time ago to forget about the past and get out on the boards and spread yourself around. 
Have Fun
For god's Sake!
This place is meant to be fun!  90% of the time it is. I have had many a strange and wonderful conversations on this site and have enjoyed every bit of it, for the most part. I have also had some very dark times here, which culminated in me having a stalking warrant taken out on someone should they ever come near me, but that is the freakishly abnormal and no where near the norm.

Do yourself a favor, don't over-read too many posts. Most are light hearted and joking, just like me telling you I had to put my head on the table to see the photo, that was just having fun and meant to be taken that way.
Be yourself, and you will have no more doubt.

Good points of view, one and all. I think Bud is just a tiny bit gun-shy given his difficulties at first. All completely understandable. All of this conversation leads me to a rather direct point;

I do not use grammar, structure and whatnot simply to "show I am smarter than so and so". I am sure it may seem that way to some but I honestly try to be as eloquent as I possibly can be because this IS the interenet and, as HB pointed out,  it is very difficult to detect "tone" in one's posts. Some are clearly more blatant than others but it has been my experience that the more clearly you speak (write) and the words that you use make a tremendous difference in the way people perceive your comments.

It may occasionally come off as somewhat pompous but in all reality, there are very few times when I am misunderstood, even by the more cretinous element amongst us. I am always more than willing to clarify if someone asks but I am fairly certain my point is made the first time through. This is all the more reason for us all to take the time to be more cognizant of what we say and HOW we say it.

Quite the valid point but with time you do get better at it. Some who post obscene messages are easy to dismiss as it is "just their way." Others, were they to do the same, really throw up red flags as it is so out out of character.

Hey, makes it easy to tell the real fans from the shitdisturbers I say.

Bud, I also loved your photos as I stated before. Be you, as others have advised.

in text its realy hard to read someones tone, then you add in the different ways of speaking around the world... its hard.  people will never all agree.

To your last sentence I think you are dead on. I definitely need to work on that.
When someone writes something(myself included), it may not have the tone you intended.
I'm new to this. I'm starting to understand. I just want to be myself and stop worrying about 
how people take me. Most will probably accept me. Some won't. Peace!

I understood you perfectly Bud. I was simply trying to make a point to you that what you consider arguing at times is actually members of this board defending their home from attacks by people who are NOT who you believe them to be. Be careful what side you choose to take. Some of these "new" people are not new at all.

I've been telling you all along to stop worrying about your posts and to start talking to people. We like you and welcome your opinions, so speak your mind. But try not to read too much into what people are saying back to you. I think you get offended sometimes when people didn't mean anything by it.

Bud, you don't need to cower or apologize for anything. I (and I'm sure many others) enjoy your post and are grateful to you for sharing your pics. I didn't think Ripper was bad at all, his only fault was that he was not Rob and er.. that's not exactly his fault is it? lol

Anyways. You don't need to pussyfoot around here. People like you and enjoy having you here. Some will argue, state their case and some a little more eloquently than others but that's just how it goes. 
Never compromise who you are for the sake of others 


And please, put your pics back up they were super rad!

You don't understand. I wasn't trying to get anyone to agree to anything. I let people make
up their own minds, just like I do mine. My rant is because of me not allowing myself to be me.
I came here with a less than stellar initial appearance. So I had to back off and be apologetic.(deserving).
Since then I have been so concerned with not offending or pissing anyone off that I started cowering at a
moments notice. Everytime I post something, if someone doesn't like it or it caused arguments among others,
I start backtracking or apologizing. The last thing was pictures that I posted. It caused others to argue and that is 
so not what I wanted. So what do I do? I delete the pictures. After I thought about it I realized that that was me 
cowering again. This is all because of my intro here. Well that's behind me. I will not make antagonizing posts.
I will not purposely offend people but I'm not backing down anymore either. An off the back on to the feet sort of thing.
I'll post pictures of Priest. I'll talk about Ripper. I'll say what I want relative to Priest. If people don't agree so be it.
I basically just want to get out from under this I'm so nice thing and be myself. Who knows, you may like the
real me better. Peace!

Bud, you most definitely should speak your mind (being respectful to others of course) but do not expect everyone to agree with you. The world doesn't work that way. I am very grateful to Ripper for stepping up and trying to fill Rob's incredible shoes. Without him, I believe that Priest would not be here today. He kept the band going during the dark years when everyone believed that Rob would never be back. I am not a fan of the Ripper era songs however. Ripper did not have a way with melody that Rob has. Also, the lyrics were seriously lacking on both albums. I think Cathedral Spires is the best song, but even that song is kind of weird for me - it changes gears abruptly and I just think they could have done it better. Without Rob's influence and writing it just wasn't Priest for me. But I am extremely grateful to Ripper and I went to the Jugulator show to support them.

As for some of the things going on with the Board, you have to realize that not everyone is here for the same reasons that you are. There are some people that have created accounts and acted like they were new when in fact they were members before and made enemies. They create these accounts and their only intention is to piss people off with what they post. If you watch these people, they always attack certain people and leave everyone else alone. Hmmmmm. They prey on the new people who have no idea that this kind of crap goes on and try to make friends with them and get them on their side. I've watched it happen over and over again and I've only been here a 10 months! Not everyone is who they pretend to be. I've been fortunate enough to meet 2 of the members of this board and they are indeed everything they present themselves to be and so much more! That is why I am here - to talk to TRUE Priest fans and hopefully meet in the future as we bang our heads and scream our bloody heads off singing along to THE BEST METAL BAND IN THE WORLD!

You know what. F*ck this, I'm being a p*ssy. I speak my mind in the real world, I may as well do it here.
For over a month because of my initial post(and the turmoil it caused) all I have been doing is trying to keep 
everything peaceful and try not to piss anyone off. I analyze everything I post trying not to cause conflict.
When it does then I start apologizing and backtracking, and in Brian Evans case backstabbing. No more!
F*ck it, and, anyone who doesn't like me. I love Ripper. I think he is an incredible vocalist. I'm glad Priest got
 him because he gave them new life. I love heavy metal and the fact that they were heavier with him was a 
good thing to me. Also there are things that he can do vocally that Rob can't anymore. Listen to Diamonds 
and Rust on Live in London and then listen to Rob's last version of it. Ripper does a much better job. I'm here 
because I love Judas Priest, I'm not here because I want people to love me. I only have two true regrets since 
coming here. I wish I wouldn't have left the F/god post in the Priest cafe and I wish I wouldn't  have stabbed 
Brian in the back. That's so not me. I would rather punch someone in the face than to stab them in the back.
You guys really should lighten up on him. Sometimes when you're attacked from all angles you have no choice 
but to come out swinging. I won't purposely antagonize here but I'm not going to be a p*ssy either. F*ck it.
 Long live Judas Priest and their fans.
