There could be many people who post on the CD without being messageboard members.

....but you CAN'T post on the CD without being a messageboard member.

Am I the only one here who wants to kick Thor in the balls really really hard?

Well, point taken. We'll see how it goes. It seemed like a good idea! Thanks for the feedback.

I have gathered that he enjoys gigging people and then pulling back to avoid retaliation. Many times. So much for "poor Thor".

The pogrom campaign here is sickening.

There is no "pogrom" here. Where do you see one?

I don't know what makes it so difficult that a person cannot simply ignore or skip over threads they don't like without bothering everyone else about it.

I don't know if anyone's looked at how this reads on the actual CD's page, but it is hi-larious. For people looking to buy the CD, turning to the comments and finding this discussion will be like opening a door to a what you assumed was a CD shop and finding yourself stumbling into the middle of someone's private residence full of people in the middle of the weirdest argument you've ever seen.

That difficulty also seems to apply to those who gang-up and abuse those who posted the original criticism.

Couldn't agree more, and that's one more reason for why they should be separated (discussions on the board can go in many different directions)! Is there any way we can move this discussion over to the CD comments thread so as not to "taint" the CD page?

I recommend this CD, it's good.

Well, since you buy so many of these CD'S, and are so well equipped to discuss them, perhaps it would be in order for you to give us your definition of "taint"?

In the real world, FSM is being very sensible in integrating its various facets by placing these semi-ads on the forum. The whole re-shaping works to better integrate the whole of what FSM does, surely a good thing. Go along with it.

Discussion groups on the net are ten-a-penny. What makes FSM unique is the triple function of magazine/CD producer/discussion forum.

There are outsiders who are drawn to perhaps only ONE or another of these three functions, via links or recommendations, searches etc. and are unaware of the full gamut. The CD production makes FSM a PLAYER in the biggest sense, and it's right that anyone just trawling the forum alone should be drawn to what else is provided.

AND it's a perfect route to remind folk of old issues that aren't selling. Isn't that what it's all about? As regards 'Where Eagles Dare' that's a score that is so well known that it should really have many takers in the bigger market. So let the bigger market know wherever you can, and the bigger market occasionally stumbles on here .... the more so since it's now more integrated on the website.

Which greater integration MIGHT cause people to modify the 'cult', in-house bickering etc. and think more on the overall effect. In future, allow these ads, and comment on them with relevance and respect.

This particular thread's ruined, by the way. It now actually works against 'Where Eagles Dare'/'Operation Crossbow'. Sabotage by some enemy could not have been more perfect.

A small analogy: you visit a
household. On the coffee-table are baby photos and graduation pictures, framed, of the family's children. The family are proud of their offspring, their creations. Would it be appropriate or even imaginable to criticise the frames, the choice of positioning of the photos, the decision to display them? I'd say not.

Coincidentally, I Netflixed this film to watch this weekend. I literally finished it twenty minutes ago. I enjoyed it very much, especially the music. This might be a future purchase for me (while supplies last, of course). smile

I think it's an excellent idea. You can't ensure that discussion will centre on these threads from the message board side, but from the side of the FSM website, all comments that come from people surveying the cds will go into this thread.

The sound quality on the original film tracks of Where Eagles Dare is much superior to that on the album re-recording.

This has been sitting in my wish list for a while now. I expect i will be grabbing it shortly as Where Eagles Dare has long been one of my favorite films. The problem is I am so far behind on the back catalog that sales tend to lure me to other titles. I expect I'll knock off one more batch from the sale before it ends on the 14th.
