Congratulations to the older posters on the board, who proved themselves ultimate knobheads once more by welcoming a newbie with less patience then a bus driver has for a crying baby on a bus.
This person was only making an opinion. If you dont agree with it, say so.
'I dont think it does really. It sounds completely different.'

Dont reply with 'you complete idiot, here comes another one everyone, oooo, lets intimidate her because shes new to queen and clearly doesnt know anything.'

Im also destressed by the fact that someone said 'stupid and mentally unstable.'
Thats not even funny. Thats extremely immature and pathetic. People with mental illness should have more understanding from us. These are the sorts of things i heard while teaching six year olds.

Welcome to the board newbie! we aint all like this, i promise. As for the rest of you, i hope this is the last time i have to say it- GROW UP.

This newbie bashing should stop. Sometimes it's not even funny and it's even dumber than you might have thought the original question or comment was.

I don't think the songs are musically similar but I could see some connection or equivalence between them like an analogy or something. "I Want It All" is a rock song with a repetitive motif for chorus, like "We Will Rock You". "Was it all Worth It" is a nostalgic 'looking back' and defying song. I could really picture it being played (at least a part of it) as the ending of a Queen concert, right before the WWRY/WATC encore.

Like I said, they may not seem alike, but I think that this may be what the original question was about. No need to bash a newbie, specially if the question or comment was made in a polite way.

I don't think there is anything wrong with bashing Noobs if they ask the stupidest questions ever posted on this site. Although i only have 40+ posts, i am not a newbie, just a newbie at posting. Been here since day 1. But i would never come up with the crap like some people new to posting. I am sorry but some of these questions are just plain stupid!


better sit back and go with the flow

I don't think that the noobs are mentally unstable! They just sound very young and naive.
They just need to think out their questions a little more. But we should welcome new Queen fans!!!!! Isn't that whole point of Queenzone??
There is nothing wrong with sarcasm, but should we let it go so far?

Is this question one of the stupidest ever? I don't think so... this could be an interesting approach to the songs, like Wiley said.

And how the heck do you know 03gills is new to Queen? Perhaps he's in the same situation. Come on... besides that, I'll say it again, this is not a stupid question.

The newbie bashing has got to stop... or, at least become softer. Yeah I know it's damn fun, sometimes it makes me laugh too, but is it so hard to be a little bit polite? Now come on, using the words "mentally unstable" says something similar about those who use it... can't we just be nicer and couldn't we be a li'l bit more welcoming, eh? You know, when I was a newbie, I spent my time on the board merely reading a lot of topics, instead of posting, and so I found out what the newbie bashing was about and... err... I payed attention to what I posted. In a sort, I was a bit terrified I could get bashed like the other newbies (I never got) - AND I WASN'T NEW TO QUEEN WHEN I JOINED THE BOARD, I ALREADY HAD BUILT UP A QUEENSITE. Time went on and I began to enjoy the sarcasm on this board and never mind some disrespectful comments, which always made me smile or laugh.
But a newbie does not know how this is going on and really might get upset. What if this drives them away from Queen? We help Queen in a very good manner, no comment, guys...


I LOVE QUEEN!

03gils, I'm sorry these cumstains have acted like this in response to your question. It hasn't always been like this - back in the day when I was new I mentioned something about hearing the words, "but I'm adopted" in AOBTD and didn't get told that I was mentally unstable.
I disagree with your opinion but I think you deserve credit for starting a thread that doesn't involve penises/Queen members' birthdates/Freddie's sex life.

Usually I am in defense of newbie-bashing, because I find it very amusing, and some of the questions asked are unjustifiably useless. However, this question wasn't bad at all. It's not something you can easily google, it's not something that's been asked here a thousand times before, and it actually makes you think a bit. So, Gills, sorry about the jerks.

And yeah, I see the similarities between WWRY and I Want It All, but I don't really think WATC and Was It All Worth It are that similar.

Well, this post was reacted to horribly. However, said "reactors" would not agree with me, so there you are. It's actually not a bad topic at all, but the way 03gills put it drives me up a wall. Just the lack of thought put into it, you know, spelling, puctuation, that kind of thing irks me, personally. Also you didn't really explain what you mean, how the songs are similar and whatnot. That really makes it a waste of our time to read it...........

I'm sorry but WHAT OLDER POSTERS? for fucks sake- we're talking here Daja and ThomasQuinn?- is this some kind of a joke...? Sorry, bu there're few wannabies here, who are fucking pathetic and ARE trying to show off as old members, bashing the ones that appeared here 2 months (wow!!!) after them... Fucking hell- it's really not about old vs new- it's about some fuckwits who have no life against those who will still take them seriously, newbies... They will never stand up the same way to Guitar_Hero, or Scully, or Pim, right? Those will NEVER take them seriously... So they bash newbies, hoping they'll be perceived in the same league... Pathetic... Dear oppositionist, you were defending newbies from the begining and most of the time you were right, BUT: very often it had nothing to do with someone being new and in this case (and few similiar others RECENTLY) it's about some wannabies, who think bashing is cool and trendy... I mean c'mon- it's pretty easy to see when someone is bashed for really stupid question or really stupid thread (Hematosetsulnaorwhatever or DAJA major examples) and when some stupid wannebies are bashing just for the sake of it (i.e. Daja again, how nice....)...

To answer to the topic of 03gills,I think there could be similarities between I Want it All(The Miracle album version,not the single version) and We Will Rock You for the drum intro which has the same pathos and Was it all Worth it and We are the Champions due to the fact that they fall in the same epic category,like In the lap of the gods or Friend will be Friends.IMHO of course.

Exactly what I always thought about DAJA (or similar ones) post. Couldn’t say it better. For me is DAJA first class representative of useless newbie post.


But now it's time to be gone - forever...
