OK guys,
It is really irritating to see that someone keeps posting quotes from Brian May's Soapbox as "Latest Queen News." Since when is it news that Brian May disagrees with some critic who did not like some album by some guy? Furthermore, assuming that you are quoting him correctly, I would argue that Brian May is not a very sophisticated writer. Does anyone else agree with me here? What the F***!

Won't happen. She has something against Brian. I think he may have touched her.

Yeah! The news section here in QZ kinda sucks!

But I think the biggest problem is not that someone copies "news" from Brian's site, but the fact that people who contribute news are too lazy to check out if their "news" is actually "old news". I mean, we had something like 5 news articles about "I Want It All in Dr. Pepper ad" in last month, all stating pretty the same. (Is it really that BIG NEWS??) Also, quite a lot of speculations about Johnny Depp getting involved in the Freddie movie. And the same old quotes from Brian about the new record, and how the next time they go out it won't be just for nostalgia.

C'mon people! Read the old news before submitting your "latest news".

To be fair to the people who contribute to the 'news' section- the original Queen lineup is no more,the WWRY musical is ongoing and we know there's a new album with Paul Rodgers coming up other than that, what kind of Queen news is left to report?

Yeah, I think it's too much to ask. I apologise for that.

What about YV actually checking the articles in the 'news' topic before they get posted there, hmm? Would that really be too much to ask? If you're a mod, you've got to work for it; that's the price.

There should not be an option for users to submit news. Guaranteed - most of whats on there isn't really 'news' or even interesting, no matter how much you like Queen.

It's pretty beautiful that the thread starter has gone and told us something that isn't really news in itself... you can't buy comedy like that.

Shut the fuck up. You're only a Freddie Mercury fan, not a Queen fan. Why the hell are you down there? Get your head out of corpse Freddie's ass before it gets dark. Go away before I get upset and try out my Brian-impersonation routine and start criticizing you, you acne-ridden 15 year old equivalent of 400 year-old rotten bear genitalia. I bet you have ass acne.
Well but seriously, don't you have better things to do? The problem with you is that you have to associate EVERYTHING wrong with Queen directly to Brian. Don't be a fucking zealot, holy water is abundant all over.

More likely, he may NOT have touched her...

But I agree that some of what ends up in the news section is not very much news actually.
