i'v been over this numerous times, the reason we disagree is simply the age difference between most of us, it's hard to see things the same way as a teenager. i'm in my early thirties so it's hard to chat about music with a 15 year old, you get my drift. why do i continue to cum hear, it's pretty simple, it's my of love for queen.

I personally think this board has improved greatly since some changes have taken place.

I agree Mike. I'm 40, and grew up with Queen (not literally of course) I waited and hounded record shops on the days leading up to a new album/cd release asking "have you got it yet?". A lot of "fans" here, only became fans very late in the band's career or after they "finished" So, I agree age does play a large part, but is all the flaming really necessary?

I have to admit, I've been visiting QZ for two years, previously as RainMustFall, and it has gone a bit downhill with really strange topics and endlessly repeated questions. I think Sebastian's site going under construction had some long range effects on the Queen online community!

Yeah, having fun is alright, I don't want to spoil that. I was just really angry about that Brenda guy...
Maybe I will calm down again.
One day.

Yes, I think so.
It's rather difficult to discuss or get proper informations especially about archival topics with the fan site like this where many people of different ages are coming.
But I enjoy Queenzone...sometimes feel tired of jokes being repeated, otoh sometimes feel we need jokes...
So...why don't you continue to come here like mike hunt... :-)

I'm over 40 myself and enjoy mature and constructive debate. However, you can't stop young people/teenagers posting on these threads. The age limit is 13 isn't it? I usually ignore immature..call it what you like...comments, profanity where I feel I have to. People can obviously relate to others who are of the same age group I guess and besides, young people grow up much quicker these days!!


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

IMHO it's actually quite opposite, but... maybe I'm wrong...

Some of your comments are interesting, though surprising.

It's the serious arguments I can't stand - where people tell each other to fuck off and try to arrange meeting to fight.

I mentioned this to my brother and he said the same thing happens on the soccer website he uses!

You know, I’m almost fifteen and I’ve never had anybody on these boards be rude towards me about my age. Usually, age isn’t the issue, it’s maturity. Then again, Linda, you do like to argue with people. Maybe take a break from swearing at everyone who disagrees with you and prove you can be mature by not fighting back?

Just to clear up any misunderstanding what i meant was people the same age as me would be better to get relevant information like for example "do you remember when the magic tour was announced and the press coverage at that time was all queen and how exciting it was back then",no offence but anyone under a certain age wouldn't know.

I for one are really chuffed there's so many teenagers and young adults loving queen and finding something out about them with the same enthusiasm as i would imagine us older guys and gals did years before.

I have always made it a point in the years that I have frequented this board to try to treat people online with the same respect and courtesy that I would in everyday life. If I wouldn't say something to someone's face, I wouldn't say it here. Its very easy to hide behind a keyboard and hurl insults at people while you're safely anonymous. But I daresay that about 90% of the insults exchanged here wouldn't be repeated if the parties involved were standing face to face. I don't think it has anything to do with age either. As much tripe is posted by older posters as it is the youngsters. Just my feelings on the topic of this thread...
