I disagree with what Schulz posted...somewhat. Alot of thread hijacking and other ridiculous stuff has taken place here. Alot of the "elitists" (i use this for lack of a better word) are disrespectful to people's threads. However, alot of noobs and recents disrespect the rules just as much. This often leads to stupid flame wars and destruction of legitimate threads.
It is not the place of anyone to call out the mods and tell them that they are not doing their job, or not doing it enough. I think the mods have alot to handle and they do a better-than-good job of keeping TA under control. If anyone wants to critique the mods, it should be done via PM or some other form of contact, not posted publically.
As far as Markus goes, I dont like his sets as much as I used to, but I respect the amount of work he does between spinning and producing tracks. Even if I dont like the tracks (which often I dont), I know how much work goes into making even the most formulaic of music sound good, though I wouldnt necessarily apply the 'most' label to Markus. It is alot of work, to be sure. However, I got the impression from the initial post and title that he is trying to use his status in the electronic world to force changes upon this forum. That should not be. People should be free to say what they want here, as long as it is not ridiculously out of context and not taking over a thread unnecessarily. No one from the newest TiT to the biggest DJ should suggest that people dont have this right.
If you dont like this place and the direction it takes or has taken, there are plenty of other forums on the internet to browse. And if you can handle no more than reading, you can always avoid replying to threads. Additionally, if certain users bother you, you can ignore them by pressing the ignore button in the frame of any of their individual posts. And as always, if reading posts here bothers you that much, you have the option to leave.
I can sense that the backbone of TA has arrived !
