Before I begin - Sonia, Yogurt, Linda, Marial-B, Alex, The Hero, TaylorGaGa....this moan is not directed at any of you as I like you all !!!!

Right, as you all know I do not post frequently on any of the Queenzone messageboards but I do contribute as and when I see fit - and for the most part it is rewarding....last week I helped TieYourMotherDown get hold of "Dog With A Bone" studio demo, I was happy to send it to him/her and got a thank you for doing so.

In the past I have contributed mp3 from my own queen collection in order to help others; when I have downloaded concerts/b-sides/demos I always make sure I show my appreciation, unlike others.

When I come onto the request sections I find a torrent of abuse directed at people because they won't share files, some people who don't show appreciation for gaining files (houston anyone?). I've just had an email from someone who's annoyed with me because I supposedly broke a trade for a Crazy Tour show. Those of you who have dealt with me in the past are well aware that I prefer not to trade outside the UK & Ireland for p&p reasons, and those people I've traded with in the past will tell you I'm reliable and trustworthy.

I then go to the personal section and find people whingeing because some others are hijacking threads!!! This is a noticeboard, not a chat room. Everyone is allowed to contribute and as long as they do so in a pleasant manner they are allowed.

I find people are posting the most ridiculous messages, about 9/11, porn and banging the corrs....others are contributing sensible topics like problems with gangs.

The whole point of these boards is for people to contribute opinions, music if they wish and for us all to get along peacefully. We have people moaning everytime someone pledges allegiance to Freddie Mercury or distain for Paul Rodgers! Yes, I agree it's old hat now but just ignore it ! 80% of the messages seem to turn into a fight !

The way things are going here Richard will shut the messageboards down - then those people who leech music and spout their crap will no longer be able to do so. And it'll serve them right. Those of us who wish to get along and trade music in a friendly manner will be the losers thanks to a small minority.

Well hijacking threads can get annoying cuz it's happening so frequently. Even when people ask serious or relevant questions people go all offtopic on them. It happens dude.

And about the other things u said: i agree.

I love IP-Bans... They do it on all the other forums I've been on with account overtakers/hackers/spammers and so on. I think this subject should be given serious thoughts.

Thijs and me did want (as Thijs said before) generate a kind of sharing stream by posting a lot of our concerts. This didn't happen and we were kinda dissappointed.

Therefore I think that "harsh reactions" from Thijs and sometimes also from me are triggered in some way by that. This also counts for the amount of leeching that is going on. I don't know about you guys but I've got 50GB datatraffic per month now. 27GB Uploaded and 23GB downloaded. I know that there aren't much providers (especially in England) without traffic limits, but this shouldn't result in only 5 people sharing and maybe 1 or 2 weeks seeding by 1 guy/gal from a torrent that was succesfully downloaded 300 times. This just ain't rite.

I hope this is accepted as my own opinion, I live in a free country and you can s*** my d*** if you don't respect it.

If any of you still haven't got "Dog With A Bone" and are curious to hear this demo, let me know and I'll send a copy to you.
