    Finally justice has prevailed. That bunch of ignorant morons are now without a gathering place. I've been there and believe me, 90% of them are not people you'd like to be associated with. In fact, I think I was indirectly responsible for it closing. After being absent for months I posted a thread about Marcel Jacob's death. Most eager Yngwie fans have heard of him. Well, the response to the thread was so overwhelmingly brutal and filled with negative energy that it prompted Mikael himself to react. And I think that might have led him to close the forum. Good deed Mike!:D

    So long suckers...

    What a shame! They're one of my favorite bands and are literally responsible for broadening my musical taste by many orders of magnitude.

    Although I'm always against censoring people, I think it might have been better to just ban all of the assholes causing trouble. I can see where Mikael is coming from, though, when he decided to close it down.:puke:

    I don't like this at all. While I had the sense to never step foot in that forum, it at least kept all the degenerates in one cesspool. Now they're probably going to invade other forums.

    Symphony X and Opeth = the only two bands I really care about anymore.

    There really were a lot of morons on the Opeth forums, though. I'd say 90% ignorant is pretty accurate.

    No, they're not.

    The internet is LITTERED with forums that have both mods and members as assholes/idiots. Good riddance I say.

    Ah, I know how that feels...only caring about a couple bands left. The music industry is indeed depressing.

    I'm beyond nervous for SX's next one. It will make or break them, not commercially, but artistically definitely. I'm like you at this point but with SX and Fates Warning.

    I thought it was kind of obvious that something did in fact happen, as stated in the OP. Read the OP Mr. "I need a 499x278 signature image because I CLEARY need to represent the music I like by having a BREAKING-THE-RULES-OVER-SIZED-IMAGE signature guy."

    someone started a thread about Face of melinda techno remix, one of the worst threads ever... two days later, another guy started a thread about Marcel Jacob's death, a bunch of trolls showed no respect, and even when Mike asked them to stop and banned a couple of em, they came again with new accounts and mocked Mike, which lead to closing the shit down.
    the new one is way better IMO
