What was once an amazing place to chat about Queen and so many other topics has become a place filled with far too many incompetent newbies and intolerant oldtimers. Insults and wars have become far too rampant in a once lively and welcoming place.

I'll lurk around now and then and perhaps occasionally post, but there's nothing really here for me anymore. Plus, recently I've gotten a job as a guitar teacher at a music studio, so I'll have much less free time for this place, anyway. I never thought I'd say these words: I love my job.

However, I will definitely do my best to keep you all updated throughout my process of auditioning for WWRY Toronto next year.

It's been a great ride, and at times a wonderful learning experience, but the best days of QZ are definitely behind us. All here whom I deeply respect know who you are. My email address is in my profile for anyone who wants to keep in touch. Take care, all.

Bob, aka Sir GH

I totally agree with you Bob. I'm gutted that QZ has become what it has. I think that this place seriously needs a moderator for the time being just to get things straightened out. Ive met some nice people on here and learned alot about my fave band, but the boards are a complete and utter shambles. Its pathetic, pathetic idiots such as HeMatiunlknlknfhycvj, Breanna, DrsDaJa, Mrs_Mercury and the like that have completely fucked it up for everyone.

Good luck in your new job and for the future.

Even if I wish you all the best for your new job, I really hope you will still find the time and the will to post on here... I've not been here for that long but I always thought you were one of the most relevant voices of the forum...

In addiction to that, you really seem to me a nice person and I'm sure that your friends here would miss you a lot...

...Anyway I must say that sometimes topics are pissing me off as well and so I think I can understand the reasons behind your disappointment...

Hope to keep on seeing you here... Really...

:-)

Sadly, online communities, like real ones, rise and fall. It's really tough to maintain a steady level of civil interaction sans moderation of some sort.

Things may change quicker than you think and maybe you'll find the board more interesting very soon :) However, good luck for the auditions - a Queenzoner playing the Canadian WWRY would sure make us proud.

Unfortunately you are just too right, Bob...

And YV, I respect your optimism, but it is been going on too long now. I've given up hope anyway...

Baer-esque crap and bashing that's all that's in here nowadays. Damn, because of that I only have about 1200 posts... Soon people like DAJA will think I'm a newbie!! ;-)

I have a feeling that the charles baer impersonator is quite popular on this board, some long time members reply on a regular basis - even Sir Bob:) If there were no replies, he would have given up already. It's true that I am an optimist and I am sure the board will get better.

Cya Bob

I don't know if this will be the last time we'll see you, because quite a while ago we had the same problem and you decided to leave but months later you came back.

So we'll see if you'll miss this place, or totally forget about it.

Wish you the best, dude.

"What was once an amazing place to chat about Queen and so many other topics has become a place filled with far too many incompetent newbies and intolerant oldtimers."

I partly agree - but its mainly (2 in particular) idiotic newish zoners who think just by increasing their post count they will be ragarded as senior / expert by the rest.

Best of luck - and i'm sure you won't be able to resist coming back.

I think richard has deleted Drs Daja acoount - which is a good start!
