Have you ever thought about writing one (= 1!) thread about Queen news and replying to it every week with new stuff ?

Does anyone else find this blatant whoring both annoying spam - and a cheapening of Queenzone?

I agree with the poster above. One posting (if needed) would suffice.
It's not even as though it is a two way contribution - I mean, how many replies has Queenzonewhore answered?

This dump and run policy shows no respect for our community, and treats us at best like like Sheepish Stepfords.
(Big time money, money).
And before anyone says don't read the posts - it's very annoying (and not endearing) to negotiate through so many useless threads to try and find an interesting one.

Would anyone else be up for banning either this poster or behaviour - and yes I do know it is an official mouthpiece - but that does not exclude such negative behaviour.

I ordered the Ltd. Ed. AG Box Set immediately after I received the mail from QOL. If a release has an interesting format (box set, book, picture disc, cd, viny, etc) it doesn't matter what the recording is. Even if I had the same song or album a hundred times. In those cases it isn't about the music but about the package. That's what collecting is about, isn't it?
If it was exactly the same package, with the same extra's, but instead of the AG cd's it contained Queen 1 or Queen 2 or SHA or ANATO or ADATR, etc. I would still buy it.
I understand the frustration about another greatest hits. I also prefer 'new' material over re-re-re-releases.
I don't share the opinion that only 'new' music is worth to be packed in different, collectable formats. If only a 1-disc AG CD in a simple jewel case with a 2 page booklet would be released, that would be a big dissapointment and reason to complain.

If the box is limited to 500, I aspected it would be sold out by now...

Here's something to consider while producing these so-called Limited Edition Box Sets for collectors. While I'm not a fan of Rammstein, they've actually managed to come up with something original, radical, and arguably interesting. It's completely ridiculous, it's very much German, and most importantly, it's personal (even if  in a more or less roundabout way), what I think is what most fans are really after. ;-)

That's true, but I wouldn't mind receiving that boxed set as a present...

My sister bought me The Platinum Collection, which I had refused to buy. I might have to forward the email from the QOL store to her, hmmm... -_-

Does anyone know a good therapist? I'm having trouble containing my grief at this news...

Anyway, if anyone can get the email addresses of these 500 suckers/I mean uberfans, I have an authentic Queenturd for sale, signed by Fred soon after his death. Guaranteed one of a kind, only one ever made. Only £100. Or I can do you ten for £750, no questions asked.

I didn't buy one.  Couldn't justify the price..  Didn't get a QOL email about it, either, so it may have been sold out before I even found out about it.

Nope. That's why I said arguably. But the point was that it's a new way of thinking.

Though theoretically you are right, you missed one essential point.
This box set costs 250 to 300 euro's!!! And for that you get NOT A SINGLE NOTE OF MUSIC  more then there is on the standard cd!

So... is that REALY what you think fans REALY want?

Considering, then Absolute Greatest turt box set thing is better - as it is not even THAT much overpriced at all.
