Can't we just discuss this stuff without taking everything personally? I know we're all proud of our opinions around here, but let's not forget that they're just opinions.

I'm really sorry for upsetting you.  My naive and sporadic ears have disgraced Jandek and everything about him.  I feel so stupid, so dressed down.  I'm going to go back to listening to Linkin Park, Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit now, I'm so sorry I ever spoke such stupid words.
Can the list ever forgive me?  Ha ha guitar technique.  I'll say what the fuck I want about who the fuck I want.  I think Garbage sound like Fleetwood Mac.  Does that mean that the guitar style has to be the same?  
You sir are a chuffing fool.  Get out of my face.
