Do you not have to pay for the official forum? If you do, it is obviously only going to be frequented by those who love the band. Which would not lead to very interesting discussion. Personally, I think we have a good mix on this board, and this leads to argument and debate which is far more interesting than 'I like Guns N' Roses.' 'Yes, me too!' 'Hooray, lets fellate each other!'. But if anyone on here feels differently, please let us know.
