I restrained myself from putting this in the Queen section, but I'd have broken the rules of decency doing so. I think we should all team up and ban GB from this board. It really annoys me that one of QP employees is a blasted spammer. Let's throw him away at once...


I LOVE QUEEN!

He has done nothing to warrant being banned. Greg just being an idiot and spewing his ridiciulous opinions is no reason for being banned.

First of all I think it's not necessary. Now that he spit all his poison he does not have anything useful to say and won't come back anyway. It's obvious that he is not interested in communicating with the fans although this would of course be very cool.

Secondly, people are not banned from Queenzone so easily and this is good about this board. The freedom of speech is valued highly on this board and I cannot see anything in his posts that is not covered by his right to speak his mind. If he were not Greg Brooks but some other poster, his posts would never have caused such a commotion, so it's not his fault that his threads dominated the board for two days. Of course you (or me) may not like what he said and we may feel badly offended by his obvious disrespect of Queen fans but on the other hand we can also be proud of the Queenzoners who responded as a community and don't let a so called half-celebrity get away with his rude rants. At least I can say for myself that I am proud of this message board and I am very happy to be a part of it.

edit: again I am a slow typer. Mike said it all already:)


I do not want any google ads here.

There is a nice post by Barbera herself on this thread http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=407257 regarding what few rules this site has. But having said that, I would imagine that permanent abuse of other users of this board might result in you being banned.


I'm saying nothing.....

Just being you, I'm sure. I wonder how you got this far, anyway.

Barb requested before that we not ask for bans publically. If you have an issue with any user, it's best to discuss it privately with Richard or YV. There' a contact link up there in the right hand corner.

Why not ban everyone EXCEPT Greg Brooks?

That will learn him.

OK, I'm sorry, I guess I was just very very pissed off by GB's posts. AND I didn't know about Barb's request (Thanks, jeffrey!). So this will never happen again, that's a promise. It was just that I had left the board two days before in a fine state and when I came back I found that so many great queenzoners were litterally smashed down by Greg's posts. He attacked them in a dirty way, he posted topics belonging to the personla section and spammed the board. Don't get me wrong, but I hope he's now gone for good.
Btw, would you like to bring the whole matter to Brian's judgement? I think it'd be interesting to see what he's got to say about it...


I LOVE QUEEN!

Btw, Jeffrey, the kitten from your profile pic is yours? He's so sweet :)... I'm in love with cats myself.

To be fair, I think she only said that in one thread at the 'Queenzone.com' forum section, so I shouldn't expect that everyone's seen it.

I don't agree with everything Greg has said or the way he's said it, but I know from email that he's always been very kind and helpful to me, and I think maybe some buttons were pushed and he reacted like many of us would.

Yep, that's my baby. She's the last remaining of my cats. About 12 years old now, so I fear she may not be around too long, but for now she's going strong, playful and happy as ever.. and still beautiful :)

I think GB should definitely be banned from this site - right now, immediately. He's upsetting too many of us and he shouldn't be allowed to speak his mind. We don't agree with him. He's not one of us - not part of our democratic community. He's an ugly brute, with big ears.

And when he's gone we can get back to all the things we normally talk about on QZ, like what we all had for dinner, and have a nice time.

BAN HIM.

We'd ask you what you had, Greg, but you're being a poo-head.

Greg, I'm sorry I requested you to be banned, but I was just very angry, I wasn't thinking clearly anymore... just like you did when attacking without any reason some of us.
If you could provide us with posts like this one, I think we'd be glad to have you around. But no one is very happy to be called names by someone who's supposed to work for the band we all love. It's disappointing for the real Queen fans to be treated like this by somebody representative for Queen. We all love Queen, but we're humans, just like you, and we may make mistakes sometimes, cos nobody's perfect, but that was no reason for such an agressive reaction coming from your part.
Btw, we do talk about interesting things on QZ, not only what we had for dinner. And, if you think you can discuss with us in a proper way, I guess we can get along. I'm sure you could bring up some great things and you could help with a lot of questions people ask in here.
So welcome on QZ, Greg. No hard feelings. Show us you are more than an agressive spammer and no one will ever ask you to be banned again, I promise you.


I LOVE QUEEN!
