Huge Jeers all around here. I feel like I have to make a statement on this because it's not just limited to this gross misinterpretation. Everyone needs to keep in mind that they don't know everyone at ProgPower. Just because you see something and your imagination jumps to conclusions doesn't mean that your perceptions are fact. This is the reason why stupid rumors start and several people who frequent this fest develop reputations that they don't deserve (though sometimes they do. ). This kind of thing has broken up friendships and has kept attendees of the fest home because they can't bear to deal with the rumors and drama. Their behavior is harmless fun and doesn't hurt anyone. In fact, the only reason why it impacts your "fun factor" at this fest is because of reasons that are entirely in YOUR head. ...and then you turn around and post shit like this for everyone to see and end up ruining that person's fun at the fest by making them deal with bullshit. Just because you don't say exactly who they are (perhaps because you do not know...funny that. Making claims about someone when you know so little as who they even are) doesn't mean that the rest of us don't know. We do. The people in question happen to be friends with several people at the fest and on this board and anyone who knows them knows that your statement is inaccurate. The thing with the sword happens to be sort of a ProgPower tradition, and while it's sort of dorky, it's no different than say...Glenn wearing Hawaiian shirts. (Imagine if you came on here saying how some drunk redneck in a Jimmy Buffet/Hawaiian shirt ruined your party and how this is supposed to be a metal festival and jimmy buffet is lame...(not slamming Glenn, just making an extreme and in my opinion similar example to the quoted statement)). As far as the asian groupie chick, well...she happens to be an extremely nice and friendly person and thought that Elvenking were nice, fun guys. They obviously thought the same of her. I assure you, she's probably the LAST "groupie girl" you'd see at ProgPower blowing anyone, let alone in full view of Center Stage. Not like that even matters because it's none of your god damned business what other people do at this fest if they're behaving reasonably to everyone. This is a social gathering. If somebody else having more fun than you is a problem, it's entirely your own. Kaosaur out. Edit/P.S.: Given the closeness of this community, you also have the potential to impact peoples' professional and family life with comments like this. It just doesn't belong on and open forum that everybody reads.
