Default Re: Another singing vid...

Posting a vid of oneself doing something out of one's comfort zone is a brave thing to do.

So a poster of such a vid - Mary in this case - should not need to deal with unfriendly commentary. For that, there's always YouTube. Does that mean everybody needs to fawn over Mary? Not at all. But the old adage about not saying anything if you don't have anything nice to say fits. Of course a singing forum would be a tougher crowd, but - reading between lines - Mary's act of self-revelation was aimed at a slightly friendly audience.

One of the things that I like about this forum is that it is generally a well-behaved, polite place to interact. If Mary's singing sucked there would have been nothing to see but tumbleweeds rolling by.

One of the things that I don't get about this forum is the weird requesting to be banned when a person decides to cease to be a member. Really? If you don't like it here, or feel that you shouldn't be here, just _ _ _ _ off* and don't let the door smack you in the ass on the way out. It really is that simple.

* Could be sign off, walk off or any other expression you feel fits.
