If anyone saw this on metal-archives, i posted this there too.

Alright so I added the Christian Olde Wolbers facebook. i've been a huge fear factory fan since i was about 12 or 13 ever since my bro introduced me to em... well anyway, I wasn't aware this was his personal FB until my friend told me so.. i thought it was fan run. I figured like most, even somewhat, famous people, they're too "busy" to interact with their fans. so it didn't really bother me when i started saying shit like "dude im going to see fear factory on the 20th! oh wait.." and then when someone said "you ****ed up dave! lol!" the joking nature of the statement furthered my belief it was a fan run page, i was just trying to stir some shit. to that i said "i ****ed up? i think christian really ****ed up when he left fear factory and started arkaea" (i'm paraphrasing). Well, after an hour or so, CHRISTIAN gets online and calls me an asshole, that i need to get a grip. I then find out its his personal page.

Well, needless to say I feel like shit, because i used to love his playing and Archetype was the album that introduced my to Fear Factory (i became a fan right around the time it was released), and really looked up to him. I truly feel like a huge asshole and sent him a letter of apology and deleted the comments I left on his page. I'm not a fan of facebook drama, but trolling is fun. Which is what i thought i was doing.

Being called a retard by one of your childhood idols is a real kick in the ****ing face. What do you guys think of the situation? I just don't want the guy to think I'm some douchebag.

Apologise.

I did apologize. I just hope he actually believes me.

Explain it was a misunderstanding, I guess Mario61's right I guess if you want to apologize.

Send him a nice letter and a muffin basket.

I'm sure he doesn't give a fuck about you or what you said, TS.

I don't know why you would even say that in the first place, but maybe he secretly agrees with you since he went so far as to personally write a response?
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Stop being a retarded douchebag and people will stop seeing you that way.

It just seems so obvious, so why does it take some people something like this to realise it?

But you are. You chose to deliberately talk shit about him. The fact that you would be ok about saying it behind his back but not to his face makes you an even bigger douche.

You trolled on purpose? And *"like"* trolling?




Are you retarded? Trolling has to be 'on purpose'. Most people do it because it's fun. You should be directing that image at yourself.

Aren't the guys from Fear Factory in their 40's/50's now? I don't think he's gonna give a shit what someone said on a facebook page.

I hope Cedric Bixler Zavala accepts my friend request, even though he never accepts them from anyone. I have a few things I'd like to get off my chest. First and foremost, kick Omar's ass for refusing to do ONE god damn tour or album with At the Drive-In.

Well sometimes people don't troll that much and some may think of it as trolling while others don't, you know?

For example, sarcasm is often not that obvious over the internet, along with other things like "Well I think you should go f*uck yourself!", to some it may not be obvious whether that's a joke or not...

Also, how exactly is being a blatant asshole fun?

You were the one who told him to 'get the **** out' for no reason.

That sucks dude, think it through next time. If he reads your apology and accepts it, it don't matter. if he ignores it, you still gotta forget it, and not troll your idols personal page
