Okay. It's time to put this to rest, for fuck's sake. Can we stop creating new threads about Greg? The man has lit the bag of shit, knocked on the front door, and ran off to hide in the bushes to watch everyone scramble.

So he sent a boy to do man's job, a job he should have done himself. I guess that is what is to be expected from GB. Oh well, at least he is trying to reconnect with the youth Queen fan demographic he degraded only a few short days ago.

Hey Poopdud, what's the email address Greg emailed you from? In case there isn't concrete proof that this is the real Greg Brooks, you could provide it.

Queen Archivist is the real GB but I somehow don't believe he sent this email. "Dear Queen Fan and QZer "... no, very unlikely.

YV, i trust your judgement about the Queen Archivist being the real GB, but there is something that i MUST point out.... First of all, the type of English that this person is using (the word structure and type of slang words used) is resemblant to an American from the East Coast, and the way this person retaliates is too close to a juvenile. Now the reason i point this out is one of my Business Postion's is a Federal Investigator, so i do this on a regular basis, as far as seeing through people without even seeing them, by reading them and so forth. If someone can get and IP address i can find out, or i may just get it myself, not that i really care, i just can't stand posers.


Edit: This (part of the supposed email from GB)

A BRAND NEW COMMENT TO POPPY...
Poppy... i don't think you are a nasty person, for what it's worth, but you did use that quote in a thread aimed at me, so you have to take the consequences on the chin - just like I have to. But don't take it too personally and NEVER let it... me... or anyone on QZ get to you, or hurt you. Seriously, it's only a little chat room thing, nothing significant. You seem too sensitive to be involved here.

This was clearly written NOT by GB, this was written by a East Coast American! Probabally around Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Or Virgina (Likely Western part of Virgina or Eastern part of West Virginia)

Usually, I do not care if someone uses a fake identity but if someone would pose as the Queen Archivist and act like he actually acts, it would be irresponsible to leave the users in the dark about an imposter. Mainly, it would be irresponsible to Queen to let someone act like this without telling the users he is an imposter and not Queen's actual representative.

Queen Archivist is Greg Brooks.

.....I'm really not sure quite what to make of this..So.. I think I'll ignore it.
No actually... Why the hell am I too sensitive?
..I get the feeling that this email isn't written by Greg Brooks... so...I'll go back to my ignoring..

I just have to call it as i see it, i respect your belief, but i have met GB, and he didn't act like this or talk in the structure as posted here, i expressed my argument to him when i met him, and different results. I really don't care if it is or isn't GB, i just know that this supposed email was NOT from the real GB. I will contact Bri and get him involved because he needs to be more active in the fan world, especially when (if it is GB) a non-statutory employee acts like this to their consumer. Very unprofessional.

It's not my "belief", you know, it's a fact. GB has not posted here for the first time. Last time he also emailed the website owner, so you can be 100% sure that this poster is in fact Greg Brooks (but I don't believe he sent this email)

As to emailing Brian, I think you will waste your time. Last time many users sent me emails and told me that they emailed Brian and complained about the abusive behaviour but none of them ever got an answer. In fact, I never heard a word of regret from anyone in QP except for Jen, who is like a friend to me and she spoke for herself and not Brian. I think it's safe to assume that Brian thinks the behaviour of his representative is perfectly okay or at least not worth the trouble.

You say that the attitude in real life is so much different than on the net and this is my experience too. In fact, I met GB in Vlaardingen in 2004 only days before he started this topic about me and there was no indication that he would behave like an internet troll. We had a very normal, decent conversation. Of course, he did not know I am "YV". Some people just do not understand that they either need to be anonymous on the net or if they use their real name, they will be judged for what they say on the net. John Stuart, for example, always used his real name and he exposed himself to personal criticism with each of his messages - but other that GB, he always shared information, never abused other people and is therefore one of the most respected members of this board - and if I ever should meet him in real life I will be honoured. On the other hand my respect for GB is really zero.

Ok i think you have missed my original point! I am talking about this email! Btw, how are you gonna say that me contacting Brian will have no effect? First of all, you know nothing about me at all, in fact i talk to Brian on a periodic basis, why is pretty much not anyone here's business, but anyways, if Brian tolerates this (which i highly doubt) then i would tell him the same thing... fuck you. I mean i have spent over $100,000 on Queen things throughout the years and have been to 107 of their concerts, so i think that gives me the right to say whatever i want about Queen or it's affiliates. I know you are YV, does that matter? no, i could care less if you were part of Queen theirself, if i don't like what you say or do, i will tell you, i voice my opinion no matter who the person is, i told George W. Retard how i felt about him in front of 1,000's! I simply do not care. I mean i have alot of respect for you and all the things you have provided throughout the years, but does this mean that if i disagree i should not voice my opinion? Hell no. But anyways, i know this email is fake!

Now, now...don't be bringing him into it. You know, now that he has proved to have the most lame-duck presidency in history, we have started to forgive Amerikans.

Besides, you now have a chance to redeem yourselves. I have watched Mr Gore's re-emergence with some interest. He may be your last...your ONLY hope....

I think I saw YoungStratMan working the "Guess my age/weight" booth at the fair the other day.

But can he guess what color underwear I'm wearing?

YoungStratMan, I am not telling you what to do, I don't know what gave you the impression. As to the email, I already said in my first post that I do not believe GB wrote this email.

I think YV's point is simply that Brian is largely dis-interested in the workings of Internet opinion, not that your opinion is worthless. When people complained back in 2004, it appears that Jen (BM.com's webmaster) was aware of the problem, but that Brian either ignored or condoned GB.

Why would someone trying to sell his book try to alienate his target demographic? That doesn't make sense at all, and I don't think he would. I don't know Greg Brooks and I'm not going to brag over the fact that I speak to John Deacon daily.

I understand this, that's why i said that Brian needs to get involved, the internet is the world now days. YV, i withdraw my comments, i would rather be friends instead of fighting, Friends will be Friends?
