I'm genuinely sorry you feel like you have had a bad experience.  You might find the queenonline community more to your liking as things are more closely moderated over there.  The cost of near complete freedom of expression here is that sometimes you'll get frankness that can make you uncomfortable.  Personally, I would never trade the former to avoid the latter, but it's not for everybody.  I did appreciate all the work you put into your Bo Rhap post and thoughts, but you have to understand how often that topic comes up, and frequently in that very same depth.  Some people are just done with it.  Others will always have something to add because it remains interesting to them.    Either way, one has to be prepared for unvarnished criticism here, and people who can find that criticism challenging or let it bounce right off them do just fine.

Along with many topics having been discussed at length here, particularly song interpretation, there are people whose research, both through released material (the music, interviews, etc) and unreleased (outtakes, demos and their own personal investigations), puts them in a position to have very strong opinions or to be very knowledgeable about specific things. Some fans can analyse the instruments, some are experts on the live material and others on cataloging the many different versions of songs both from Queen and their solo projects.

As GratefulFan points out, we have our relative freedom here. It's a double-edged sword sometimes, as things can get heated, but the trade off is that things also get discussed thoroughly and every angle and interpretation is examined. And we won't always agree. The original poster of any thread needs to be prepared for his/her idea to be challenged in every way conceivable, but that should not stop the OP from trying. If an idea is well thought out and has merit, defending it can only improve the calibre of the thread and our collective knowledge of the band. And you may win a few supporters along the way.

I just checked out the thread that you are referring to and I do think you are being quite thin skinned.  I don't see anyone attacking you at all.  There are a few "that's bollocks" type of posts, but if you just wanted universal applause for your thesis, you needn't look on the internet.

In reply to the original post: Actually I see very LITTLE of that on this board, and it's one of the reasons I post here...

So now that you've removed your original post, all of this looks like it doesn't make much sense.....are you staying or not?  Hopefully the editing of the opening posts suggests that you're going to keep on contributing :)

you have two choices:

blub like a baby ..."mummy the nasty people are talking to me and i hate it cos they dont all agree with me like you do"
or
grow a pair .....make as many half-baked theories and assumptions as you like...but expect some barbed wit and criticism when you say somehting contentious......come out fighting......and either back up your opinions with logical argument or make a joke of the whole thing

finally, nothing prevents you "attacking" our half-baked theories too........most of us on here have been around long enough to accept that we have to give and take some shit...that's life

for my part (and i don't recall attacking you about you Bo-Crap theory) i will always try and discuss argue or debate with someone who hates my postings......and if that doesn't work.......go round when they're asleep, let their tyres down and throw some rocks thru their windows......  ;-)

I don't think you realise, discussions of this ilk were taking place 36 years ago, they are of no merit whatsoever, there is no great mystery that you, after all these years, are goin to get to the bottom of, there aint no holy grail.
    But dont be despondant, just 'cos we offer a modicum of criticism, doesnt mean we dislike you, it really is nothing personal, so please keep your chin up.
