If you are in the majority on any particular issue, you're lucky, because your opinions are shared by many.
However, change occurs from the outliers, which means that if you're in the majority you've chosen a viewpoint in decline.
We here are in the minority: we view metal as art, with something valuable to say; everyone else views it as either party music, or "serious" profound pseudo-intellectual stuff that bleats NPR talking points.
People in the minority viewpoint should work together so they achieve effect on the world.
Otherwise, they become marginalized and hateful, and turn on others without a purpose.
I'm glad to see some of the bad behavior of this forum receding. I'm hoping that people will overcome their drama and join or rejoin us.
In the meantime, we have a standard of behavior to uphold, and a lot of work to do.
A big "thank you" to all who have helped -- you know who you are.
