"Who/what is better" threads usually turn into flame wars. Generally the mods just close them before that happens.

Because you didn't read the rules ;)

i'm mad i need to know! for jesus i need to know it's not fair thats the 3rd thread you people closed down and i need a reason!Hard to say, exactly. Perhaps it's because ...

1 - You can't count?

You have 7 threads, including this one.
There have only been TWO that have been closed.
Of course you might be anticipating this abortion being closed, too. :rolleyes:


2 - Your threads suck?

Two of the threads that have NOT been closed have ZERO replies.


3 - You didn't place your thread in the proper forum?

There is an entire forum for Bands & Artists (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=4)


4 - Things you said might make people think you are an arrogant ass?

"i'll start another thread when this one is eventually shut down"


5 - You rarely bother to use punctuation?

I looked at this thread and laughed at the run-on sentence.
You did stop after the first bit. ... to throw up an exclamation point.


6 - You cause yourself to be perceived as a whiny, self centered moron?

There's no point in selecting anything from your OP this thread as an example.
The entire OP fits in that category. From the recently closed thread:

"so i got in a argument and i asked every one i know..of course where i live being a metal head is being a out cast so they all of course said jimmy page..there zepplin fans so i ask my dad and he likes both but he'd rather Hammet because of well look at metallica's
history..i'd rather Kammet because of 2 things 1. he has better solos 2.well he has the ability to play thrash songs for 8 + minuets with hardly any stops...what do you think...AND EXPLAIN!!!"

Too bad if your locale is hostile to metalheads. It happens. Don't bring your grudges to UG for validation.


It could be any, or all of the 6 possibilities, above.
Or it might be because VS threads start flame-wars and polarization within the UG community.










... or maybe you just need a stronger breath mint. I dunno. Take your pick.

+1 to everything SYK said.

Also, I love how you think that 'fair' exists on a privately owned website.

SYK, you used bold to emphasize individual points. <3
