Dear lovely Queenzoners, whom I've occassionally referred to as Moanzoners, in a quite amusing and refreshing fashion...
DIM PERKS has taken exception to me expressing my own opinion, and says I would be sacked immediately if I worked for him. He wants to know if QPL are aware I say such things... as if everything I say is exactly THEIR views too, which of course is a million miles from the fact, again.
This Dickenzian... indeed Jurassic... attitude has provoked me to respond with the following, to him, in that thread. But I think it bears repeating in this, it's own thread.... so incredulous am I that people like that STILL exist, and are apparently proud to publicly air such out-dated and frankly worrying attitudes.
See what you think of this........
I originally wrote.... "GO FUCK YOURSELF Dim Perks. Is that readable enough for you!! Because DIM PERKS said I was unable to make myself clear. i thought THAT was clear enough, don't you!?!?
DIM PINKY PERKY FAN REPLIED... Truly unbelievable...
Greg, don't let yourself so intimidated by a bunch of people on the internet. Does Queen know you are expressing yourself like this to people that keep the legend of Queen alive? That are faithful? I think it is a shame, if you were my employee I'd fire you immedeately.
I THEN WENT ON.... DEAREST DIM PERKS.
IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTIONS... WHICH HAVE IN FACT ALREADY BEEN ANSWERED MANY MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS... SNOOZE SNOOZE, FIGHT TO KEEP MY EYES OPEN...
YES, QPL ARE AWARE I AM EXPRESSING MYSELF THE WAY I AM. BECAUSE, LIKE YOU, THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND CAN READ TOO. VERY WELL IN FACT... EVEN JOINED UP LETTERS AND LONG WORDS. THEY'RE VERY CAPABLE OF SEEING MY 'CONTRIBUTIONS' HERE. JUST LIKE YOU ARE. YES YES YES.
AND... JUST IN CASE... CRETINS LIKE YOU ARE FOREVER WRITING TO SAY... "HEY QUEEN, GUESS WHAT THAT NASTY GREG BROOKS SAID ON MOANZONE... AND HE USED BAD LANGUAGE IN YOUR NAME TOO, SO EVERYONE WILL THINK THAT HIS OPINIONS MUST BE REPRESENTATIVE OF QUEEN'S TOO. BECAUSE WE AT QUEENZONE SEEM TO ASSUME THAT EVERYTHING GB SAYS ARE VIEWS HELD BY QUEEN AS WELL."
NO. YOU FOOLISH CHAP. GREG BROOKS' OPINIONS, VIEWS, EXPRESSIONS, ARE HIS AND HIS ALONE. THEY DO NOT EXPRESS THE OPINION OF QUEEN OR ITS MEMBERS OR MANAGEMENT. NO MORE THAN STEVE WRIGHT OR TERRY WOGAN'S VIEWS MIRROR THOSE OF BBC RADIO 2. ONLY A DICKHEAD WOULD THINK OTHERWISE.
THEY CAN FIND MY WORDS OF EXPRESSION AT ANY POINT, JUST LIKE YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE CAN. I THOUGHT THAT SHOULD BE VERY BLATANTLY OBVIOUS, PAL. APPARENTLY NOT.
THE FACT IS... THEY DON'T LOOK HERE. WHY WOULD THEY? WHAT ON EARTH WOULD THEY WANT TO COME HERE FOR??
NOW THEN, YOU DIM PERKY PERSON, WHEN YOU SAY.... "people that keep the legend of Queen alive" REMEMBER THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ON QZ ARE NOT AT ALL MAJOR QUEEN FANS, AS IS CLEARLY EVIDENT. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE ON THIS SITE - IT'S NO SECRET AT ALL - THAT CLEARLY HAVE LITTLE AFFECTION FOR QUEEN OR SOME (OR MOST) OF THE RELATED PRODUCT.
SO, YOUR BLANKET GENERALISATION IS WAY OFF THE MARK. "people that keep the legend of Queen alive"... INDEED!!!
YOU DO MAKE ME LAUGH.
YEAH RIGHT!!!! AS IF.
"That are faithful." HAVE A WORD WITH YOUR SILLY SELF. YOU'RE LIVING IN A UTOPIAN-TYPE DREAM WORLD. YOU SHOULD READ WHAT SOME QZ-ERS SAY ABOUT FREDDIE AND BRIAN AND QUEEN ON THIS SITE. MUCH OF IT IS OUTRIGHT OFFENSIVE AND LIBELOUS. PLEASE DON'T TELL ME YOU'VE NOT NOTICED THIS BEFORE.
SOME OF THE VILE THINGS I'VE SEEN ON HERE ABOUT FREDDIE AND HIS PAST, HIS LOVERS, HIS PRIVATE LIFE, HAVE BEEN AN ABOMINATION... REALLY NASTY HORRIBLE STUFF, THAT EVEN UPSET CERTAIN QZ-ERS. SO GET IT INTO PERSPECTIVE FOR GOODNESS SAKE.
MY RESPONSE OF 'GO FUCK YOURSELF', TO AN IDIOT WHO OBSERVED THAT I COULDN'T OR WASN'T MAKING MYSELF CLEAR, WAS REASONABLE IT SEEMS TO ME, AND IT FURTHER PALES INTO NOTHINGNESS IN COMPARISON WITH MANY OF THE NASTY FREDDIE COMMENTS WE'VE ALL BEEN APPALLED TO READ HERE IN THE PAST (AND PROBABLY CURRENTLY TOO). SO DO PLEASE KEEP IT IN BALANCE PERKY. THAT'S A FAIR COMMENT AIN'T IT NOT. THAT'S BAD GRAMMAR I KNOW, BUT NOT WORTHY OF A NOTE FROM YOU TO JIM BEACH I THINK.
WHAT PLANET ARE YOU ON??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it is a shame... LISTEN DIM PINKY & PERKY FAN... QPL REALISE THAT I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN WORDS AND EXPRESSIONS. UNLIKE YOU, THEY LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD. THIS IS STILL, JUST ABOUT, A FREE COUNTRY WHERE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION STILL PROSPERS. SO I CAN CALL YOU AN ANNOYING PROVOCATIVE TURD IF I LIKE, AND NOT BE IN FEAR OF GETTING THE SACK LIKE I WOULD IF, APPARENTLY, I DARED TO SPEAK MY MIND OPENLY IF I WORKED FOR YOU.
THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE YOU, SIR, IN ZIMBABWE RIGHT NOW, THAT ACTIVELY SEEK TO SILENCE PEOPLE, STOP THEM EXPRESSING THEIR FREE THOUGHTS. STOP THEM HAVING THEIR SAY, THEIR VOTE.
"if you were my employee I'd fire you immedeately"
I DON'T DOUBT IT, YOU SMALL MINDED MORON.
YOU'VE SPELT IMMEDIATELY WRONG BY THE WAY. IF YOU WERE MY EMPLOYEE AND YOU SPELLED SOMETHING WRONG, OR EXPRESSED AN OPINION I DIDN'T AGREE WITH... I WOULD NOT SACK YOU 'IMMEDEATELY' OR IMMEDIATELY, OR ANYTHING ELSE.
I'D RECOGNISE THAT YOU SHOULD BE PERMITTED TO SPEAK YOUR MIND WITHOUT FEAR OF LOSING YOUR JOB.
I FEEL SORRY FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU... AND MORE SO FOR THE POOR PEOPLE THAT WORK FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU, WHO HAVE TO CONSTANTLY TREAD ON EGGSHELLS LEST THEY SHOULD DISAGGREE WITH YOU AND BE SACKED. THEY CANNOT FINANCIALLY AFFORD TO EXPRESS THEIR TRUE FEELINGS, BECAUSE FOOLS LIKE YOU COME DOWN HARD ON ANYTHING THAT COUNTERS YOUR OWN INFLEXIBLE OPINION.
SMALL-MINDED IS JUST THE TIP OF THAT NASTY ICEBERG.
