I find it quite disturbing to read all of this mud slinging and abuse that mainly seems to come from "Queen Archivist" towards John S Stuart. I've been an avid user of this site for years and I feel that the tone has been lowered. John S Stuart has been a fantastic source of information to many people over the years and cant really be knocked for it. Frankly, I've never believed that "Queen Archivist" is the real Greg Brooks. I've worked in the music business for years and people with Queen Archivist's attitude (childish and immature)wouldn't have a chance of getting anywhere and certainly aren't tolerated. I would doubt if a man like Brian May would want to work closely with someone like Q.A. I dont know if anyone else feels the same as me but isn't about time we all just discussed our common inerest - Queen? One of the problem with the internet is identity theft (as BM recently pointed out). We could all pretend to be Greg Brooks couldn't we?

At the last Dutch Queen meeting on October 21st I asked Greg Brooks if he was the Queen Archivist on Queenzone. He told me he indeed was Queen Archivist. (As YourValentine has told us before) But it's very easy to create a nickname that's very similar to Queen Archivist.
I take little notice of the debates between Greg and John on Queenzone so I don't take one's side in this.
I have talked with Greg and he seems okay to me. I've read John's posts about Queen material and have had some mail contact with him. He seems okay to me too.

I've read massages from both parties

(meaning: Greg versus basically the whole board)

ridiculous threads like this one make my blood boil

I absolute despise the massive aggressivness against the man who was the driving force behind many Queen releases.

I can't believe that grown up people with a job like Togg can act like such a dick.

I think greg is really polite and reasonable considering the shit he gets thrown at him. me, I wouldn't be so polite.

I find Greg to be a really nice bloke and very willing to talk about things as long as it's away from the QZ lunatic asylum. I think Greg is an exceptionally talented young man - he's 40 but only looks 34 - and I wish that more of you people could meet him and see what joy and laughs and sunshine he brings with him wherever he is. He is a total sweetie pie lovely handsome and generally great individual.

THIS IS TRUE AS WELL. THANKS MUM.

Dear Mrs. Brooks,

Thank you for doing such a good job raising Greg. We all appreciate the hard work you put into that challenging job. I hope you visit us again soon.

Love,

no, we've never met

I'm actually a QOL regular. did you know that JSS even comes there, bringing his unwanted message of pure arrogance and hate?

it's at that point that I became curious and decided to have a look around here.

I'm mesmerized by all this arrogance. how can you cope with all this shit?

believe me, I have been on the recieving end of much much flack on QOL. I know the drill. these guys just love to fight and feel important because they have just slagged off the Queen archivist. they must have small dicks I guess

hell, I'm sure they would even slag off brian if he would post here. would make them feel so important.

well guess what, unfortunately for them I noticed. they will all soon know why I recieve much flack on QOL

I'm sure if your beloved Nazi's came back to power you'd be the first to go up against the wall. Your attitude is disgusting, as is everyone pretending to be in charge of this board while condoning your Nazi propaganda.

DEAREST DONNA,

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN MY SON, GREG, AND I FOR TEA THIS COMING SUNDAY EVENING?

WE WILL BE PARTAKING OF CUCUMBER AND SALMON SANDWICHES, JELLY AND ICE CREAM, AND IT WILL BE SPLENDID. YOU WILL BE MOST WELCOME.

ANYONE WHO HAS NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT MY LOVELY BOY GREG, IS CLEARLY A VERY INTELLIGENT PERSON WITH ASTUTE JUDGEMENT OF CHARACTER, AND I'D LOVE YOU TO COME TO MY HOME (A LITTLE COTTAGE) AND HAVE A LOVELY TIME. I'LL MAKE RASPBERRY TRIFLE TOO. ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO NUTS?

AND... BY THE WAY... THOSE ON QZ WHO HAVE BEEN VILE AND INSULTING AND GENERALLY BEASTLY TO MY GREG, SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES... ESPECIALLY THE STRAT_MAN... WHO LOOKS TO BE A PROPER LITTLE TURD... OOOOH, PLEASE EXCUSE ME. THAT WORD JUST SLIPPED OUT. I 'DON'T USUSALLY USE THAT KIND OF LANGUAGE, BUT I THINK YOU'LL AGREE THAT YOUNG_TWAT_MAN (AS GREG CALLS HIM) IS CERTAINLY IN A SIMILIAR INTELLECTUAL LEAGUE AS A HUMAN TURD.

ANYWAY, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU DEAR DONNA13. PLEASE FEEL FREEE TO BRING A CHUM. AND BE PROMPT FOR 6.15 BECAUSE I MUSTN'T MISS ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, DEAR.

SORRY TO WRITE IN BIG LETTERS, DEARS... I'M A BIT DEAF.

I SAID, I'M A BIT DEAF.

DEAREST DONNA,

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN MY SON, GREG, AND I FOR TEA THIS COMING SUNDAY EVENING?

- I would love to. I really really cannot think of anything I would rather do, and therefore it is so sad for me to tell you that I have to stay here in Virginia and give my dogs a bath on Sunday evening. You see, the vet is coming next week and I don't want her to think I'm a bad owner. Besides my previous (soapy and wet) commitment, I have recently let my passport expire (oooh - a bad thing to do, I think). I will have to write to the State Dept. about that little problem as soon as possible.

WE WILL BE PARTAKING OF CUCUMBER AND SALMON SANDWICHES, JELLY AND ICE CREAM, AND IT WILL BE SPLENDID. YOU WILL BE MOST WELCOME.

-Mmmm. That does sound yummy, Mrs. Brooks.

- No, I'm not allergic to nuts (thank you for asking), however, my judgement of character can be slightly off sometimes - but sometimes it can be really "spot on" - then off, then on. But you know how that can be. I just rely on my intuition most of the time ... and I am thankful for a little divine intervention on occasion (whether or not I ask for it, and I usually don't ask for it). I'm sure you know what I mean, Mrs. Brooks. Oh, and I hope to see your cottage another time. It must be very beautiful.

AND... BY THE WAY... THOSE ON QZ WHO HAVE BEEN VILE AND INSULTING AND GENERALLY BEASTLY TO MY GREG, SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES... ESPECIALLY THE STRAT_MAN... WHO LOOKS TO BE A PROPER LITTLE TURD... OOOOH, PLEASE EXCUSE ME. THAT WORD JUST SLIPPED OUT.

- Bless you, dear. Would you like some smelling salts?

ANYWAY, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU DEAR DONNA13. PLEASE FEEL FREEE TO BRING A CHUM. AND BE PROMPT FOR 6.15 BECAUSE I MUSTN'T MISS ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, DEAR.

- I'm terribly sorry I can't make it this time, but I do hope you will invite me again. Enjoy your antiques show! Maybe Greg can bring you your ice cream in front of the TV and you can put your feet up! (Or do they not do that in a proper British household?)

SORRY TO WRITE IN BIG LETTERS, DEARS... I'M A BIT DEAF.

I SAID, I'M A BIT DEAF.

- Yes.

LOVE TO YOU ALL, AND GOD BLESS ALL BUT THAT YSM WEIRDO.

MRS BROOKS

- Thank you so much Mrs. Brooks. It was lovely to hear from you again. Take care.

Love,

Donna

This is getting pathetic. Do we really have to raise a person's status up at this place.

John and Greg both did good things and perhaps bad things, they are both human beings with their opinion about things.

There is no reason to build up a propaganda to each side to make the person more loveable at this website.

I agree. And I think we can all agree that both John and Greg are already loveable enough!!! So, maybe they (and we) can now get back to a more loveable conversation about Queen.
