I was banned from a band's official forum back in the early 2000's for being involved in a fan forum war.

Basically, big divide in the fandom started, fans started getting at each other's throats. Admins started to throw down the ban hammer so people started branching off into EZboard forums. People registered accounts to both of the forums to troll and this got back to Admins on the official fan forum and about 10 of us got banned, for not even doing anything on that forum.

It was mostly because one of the secondary adminlolcows had it in for the lady who started the forum I was based out of, everyone banned was from our board.

If you count Aerosmith as metal.

No. No, I don't. I was guessing because those usually have fan bases split up for dumb shit.

Honestly if you get into any rock band that has that long staying power Aerosmith has (had?) it eventually becomes us vs. them. Fucking Blue Army original fans from this 70s were the biggest bunch of fucked heads you ever saw. Basically a bunch of old dudes circle jerking to the band's first four records and tearing into anyone under the age of 40 because "these fucking kids today".

One of the main guys I had a beef with claimed to have been a huge band in the 80's, poised to get a contract to Geffen records but they pulled out because they didn't want to sell-out. Supposedly that contract went to Guns n Roses. And he reminded us of it at least once a week. So obviously a shitload of us started putting GNR song lyrics in our forum sigs and got him triggered.

Best one though was a mid-40's balding "Catholic" guy who hated the band's pop sound, yet he was a fucking groupie for Avril Lavigne, Michelle Branch, and Ashley Simpson. Creepy as shit. I wish I had the pics this guy posted when he would meet and greet with them. It looked like they were posing for a ransom photo. Meanwhile he was quoting bible verses in his signatures.

Actually the damning evidence that got me banned involved an imaginary message in a bottle from all three women telling the horrors of being chained up and loved "The Spoony Way" by this guy.

I never quite understood the purpose behind a discussion board for a specific band. How much is there to talk about anyway?

Do they indulge in DEEP LORE exploration of the song lyrics or what?

We used it to schedule meetups, a lot of arguing, a lot of women perving over band members, bootleg trades, reminiscing. There was OT stuff too and there was shitposting. One of the people on the board managed to archive a few threads.

This is how we shitposted in my day. http://www.templeofaero.com/moo.html

Idol worship at its finest, or worst depending where you stand on the matter.
