Maybe the person who posted it here subscribes to the whole "This completely independently run fan forum shutting down for financial reasons means the end of Guns N' Roses" bullshit I've been reading on there. From that point of view, it could almost be considered relevant enough to put in the main section. It's really quite funny that they see themselves as so important to the continued existence of the band... and quite depressing at the same time.

I was never fond of MYGNR, but Eric was always very kind to me, and he did in fact help me out alot during my trip to Toronto, Canada to see GN'R in 2010.  Cool

But having said that, alot of bad decisions have been made by them in terms of fueling lies and unwanted speculation. And alot of the active members over there seem to want to cause trouble at the drop of a hat.  Tongue

I also feel that Eric should have been more involved in moderating the forum, and not leaving it to people who are just as bad as the trolls in some cases.  yes

I can't criticise his comments about GN'R because, I think every GN'R fan would like GN'R to be out there more, in whatever capacitiy. It's only natural when you love a band so much, to want to feel their vibe and energy all the time.  Wink

But, I don't think he should be criticising GN'R for sending legal letters to MYGNR. Simply because when you claim to run the biggest GN'R forum on the net, you also have to take responsibility for the site and to make sure that everyone is on the site for the right reasons. MYGNR can only blame themselves in that aspect for providing a platform for such activities, and Eric should have dealt with it himself instead of leaving it to people who clearly enjoy the "forum drama" as much as the negative posters.  Roll Eyes

I agree with a lot of what you said, but to me the thing that Eric was really wrong on in his closing statement was the implication that GN'R SHOULD HAVE financially supported the site.  They had no obligation to whatsoever.  It would've been nice, yes, but it is absolutely not an obligation nor is it standard operating procedure for that to be the case.  And therein lies the difference between an unofficial fan forum and an official forum.

Just to clarify something for those who are interested.

In my opinion, getting a cease & desist letter isn't necessarily a personal attack on you.

I got the same letter. Didn't bother me.

I had no problem with it, I understood the need for it. Simple as that.

Some of you might keep thinking "why doesn't he allow us to talk about this or that", but at the end of the day, you aren't responsible for the site.

I know some of you don't understand....



I do what I do, others do what they do. I don't hide behind an username attacking the band that I claim to love and support.

I will also not let those same people take over something I worked on for years just to become "cool" with them.



Regarding him shut his forum down, it's unfortunate for those real fans who considered it their online home. But I don't see how any of this is the band's fault... 

As far as I remember, Axl even posted there! So did many other band members.

Well said Jarmo. I have also said that a cease and desist letter is not a personal attack. There are some people who think the C and D letters just came up with the recent MSL crap. Not true. Jarmo posted a similar letter during the Latigo Hammers fiasco.

not happy news, definitely, even though I think that message board was an inmense crowd of haters and trolls. not only that: I really think its staff encouraged their users to spit all over the band they allegedly love.

I couldn't care less, to be honest. To blame the band about the shut down is ridiculous, absolutely insane. But, believe it or not, 90% of the posts there agree with the initial post from Eric Romano where he basically blames the band.

oh, by the way, there's a new facebook group from MyGNR. Join there if you cant live with this whole thing.
