I'm a little confused as it seems like a lot of people ask perfectly good questions here on the forum and are then slammed by a bunch of idiots making vulgar remarks. I guess I'm not understanding what the moderator does? This is only my second post and have stood behind the lines for over a year now never attempting to contribute for fear of being slammed. What's the point of the Queenzone forum if people don't feel they can participate?

HOW DARE YOU MAKE SUCH A STUPID TOPIC! GO HOME AND DIE!!! YOUR TYPE RUIN THIS FORUM!!

I'm just kidding. QZers usually only get upset when people....

1. ask stupid questions that could be found on google or wikipedia

2. ask stupid questions that they know can't be answered

3. ask for things that are either impossible to get, or can't be shared on the site

People aren't as bad as I've seen them lately, on both sides.

I started to read your email and thought here we go... Thanks for the eye catching headline! It seems easier to just ignore these types of questions instead of taking the time to insult others.

I couldn't agree more Karen L but sadly some seem to go out of their way to insult. If you've been visiting QZ for a while, you've probably already learned who the bullies are so you can ignore their posts too!
Granted, the search function is both useful and underused but having said that, isn't it easier to just point the uninformed in the direction of the archives instead of being out and out rude?

Wiki can be edited....


So can any text book. What makes the text book any more credible than wikipedia? The writer of a text book doesn't have any less of an agenda than a wiki editor does.

Wikipedia is a great source, because it is always immediately updated as new knowledge comes to light. With the very odd exception, it is always accurate, because there are always people checking the articles to ensure they are correct.

Example... 99% of science/astronomy text books are wrong because they do not have the new definition of a planet. Wiki, on the other hand, was updated hours afterward.

It's all relative, my friend.

The most important wiki topics have watchdogs at all times. I've tried editing wrong information into an article a couple times, as a test... and within minutes, my edits were deleted.

Indeed, I have in the past changed people's middle names on wiki, and in minutes, it's editted back.

Yes, but we also have to remember, as Treasure Moment so eloquently reminds us every post, "Ask a Stupid Question..."

That was not something created on Queenzone. Plus I'd say about 68% of the questions asked on queenzone are not asked for legitimate reasons.

So I ask you, Karen G, how would you answer the following questions:

1. Was Bohemian Rhapsody about AIDS?
2. What was Freddie's last words?
3. Is it ok for Brian and Roger to use Paul Rodgers?
4. Where is John Deacon?
5. Who is John Deacon?
6. When is the box set coming out?
7. Are you sure Bohemian Rhapsody isn't about AIDS?
8. Is Freddie better than Paul?
9. Who is the moderator here?
10. Would anybody like me to provide them a complete copy of:
a) Sunbury '74
b) Hangman studio version
c) Face It Alone
d) the complete 13 track Queen II album.

I think it would amaze you how many times those exact questions were asked here.

I refuse to take seriously anyone who claims to have been reading this site for a year yet still believes there is a moderator.

Nobody is that stupid, therefore this is a WUM

1. Was Bohemian Rhapsody about AIDS? Not a chance. It's clearly about the internet.
2. Freddie's last word - Wikipedia
3. It is OK for Brian and Roger to "use" Paul Rodgers.
4. John Deacon is at home.
5. I think it's safe to say John Deacon is the Base player for queen (I hope I spelled Base write, my english is not well)
6. What box set?
7. Yep, pretty sure.
8. No comparison
9. I thought it was someone sitting at a desk omitting super offensive messages we never get to see. I'm glad GH filled me in. I'm not sure how I'll ever gain his trust now.
10. Multiple choice hmmm... I believe this is a trick question.

Bohemian Rhapsody is from 1975 and AIDS was discovered in summer 1981 in Atlanta, SAD where was registered that 5 young men (homosexuals) are having that new unknown disease. 2+2=4 -.-

And yes, those questions were asked here at least 100 times. This would be one of the stupidest :P

Wow, you're actually really close. Maybe that's what he was really trying to say. I never really thought about it, but it COULD have been totally misunderstood. Perhaps a quick search was on his mind!!!

Obviously, Karen, you get it. So if you, by chance, get bamboozled by someone on here, it's not personal.
