I helped run a board that allowed hidden members.  One of the reasons we had it was because one of the band members the board was dedicated too used to read the board, and we didn't want him to be pestered by fans all the time.  I've seen it used for similar reasons on other boards.

See, now THAT is a good goddamn reason. It would be like some famous person wanting to not be bothered by random fans while they're eating lunch in a restaurant. Hell, Todd was a member on the BDR for a short while (I wonder if he ever got a notice saying he was banned? Y'know, for questioning Blackbird's integrity or whatever. Hahaha), and every other regular poster got as giddy as a schoolgirl when they saw he was logged in and reading the threads. And you know Blackbird loved it, and he loved the attention the BDR was getting, and the attention his Man of the People / Rock God was getting.

But nope, it was likely only used so Blackbird could be logged in at all hours of the day so he could monitor everything without anyone seeing that he was logged in. Was the forum set up so that he'd be notified if anybody posted in a particular thread, or if any particular user posted something anywhere? Who knows, but if that option was available, you know damn well Blackbird would've been using it.

This morning I'm listening to Jeremy Fisher's kid-song project called Jeremy Fisher Junior and the new album "Highway to Spell" just came out today. Pretty fun. I hope my kids like it.

Sheryl Crow is playing the Winnipeg Folk Festival this July. Should be a good time.

Birdbrain (An RTM exclusive, christened by NJ).  :D

I would never disparage Blackbird's good name like that. How so very rude.

WTF is with the "Hidden Member" bullshit.

DTF likely has the option to hide your online status. The "hidden member" thing was discussed before and honestly I never figured out why anyone would need to use it. But I don't doubt Blackbird used it a bunch on BDR and it wouldn't surprise me if he's using it on DTF.

What can I say, they know a hot scoop when they smell one. PEW! PEW! PEW!

By the way, at the end of the segment, the guys were laughing at a meme someone posted in the chat room of a guy gripping a dildo in each hand with the caption "ONE FOR LA TORRE ONE FOR THAYER."  ;D

Roush, I thought your PMs became not-so-private on BDR because people were sharing them with Lucretia and Blackbird, not because the mods were reading the messages themselves. Like you sent a PM to a couple people and then they went to the mods and said "uhm, did you know Roush is trying to steer people away from BDR and to RTM? Check out this message she sent me." Or is that not correct?

For the record though, knowing how paranoid Blackbird is, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if I heard he read through other people's PMs.

Hahaha not even Neeley can get excited about the new Scott rumour. And he was able to make reading forum rules entertaining.

I wonder if some of the people over at DTF ever think "damn, what's with all the fucking Queensryche threads all of a sudden?" and then they look and go "ah that explains it. It's [as one poster so succinctly put it] the resident Queensryche nut back again."

Blackbird, if ya got any more room in your signature line, you should toss "Resident Queensryche Nut" in there. You know, just so there's no confusion.  ;D

Love the Bane pic, justbob. Nice work. Hahaha.

What I find hilarious about Blackbird’s new signature is that he’s brought up our little message board on DTF on MULTIPLE occasions, likely in an attempt to start a dialogue with other members who will hopefully say “oh man that’s so fucked up. You’re right Blackbird, those guys are losers.” And then he could reply with “Right? But if they want to spend all day following me around the internet and criticizing everything I do (because I certainly don’t do that with Todd La Torre or the other guys in Queensryche), then that’s their right I guess. It clearly doesn’t faze me in the least however, because I will end my sentence with an LOL or a laughing emoji to indicate how much it doesn’t bother me [insert LOL or laughing emoji here].”

But now with his new signature, he doesn’t have to shoe-horn it into the conversation. He can just leave it up like a big passive aggressive turd for all to see, much like he’s done in the past with signatures about Parker being a cop-hater and blocking him on Facebook or some quote of his own which vaguely criticized Todd. What a literary relief it must be for him.

Just to add to the Scott / Geoff speculation. Found this Pic of Kelly Gray who is also tight with Scott with an interesting caption. Not sure if it posted correctly but its a pic of Kelly Gray and a woman from Saturday and it’s caption reads “looking forward to QR coming back”

I can’t see this. Is the pic still up?

Also, let’s make sure we’re quoting Blackbird fully here, yeah?  His signature line in full is:

“Need some entertainment watching crazy people? I am honored to have a dozen psychotic trolls stalking me because they don't like how I ran a forum about Queensryche! Check out the pathetic group here -

“Note: WARNING! 81 percent of everything in that thread is completely BS. Although I do have an obsession with the correct track listing of The Warning! ;-)”

Frankly I’m surprised Bosk would allow it. (Shrug)

So 19% of what we say isn’t bullshit? Blackbird, you flatterer you. Personally I was only hoping for 1.56 non-bullshit percentage rate, m’self.

So thanks Blackbird for the free advertising? Hahaha.

Shit, I’ll even sweeten the pot and you can call RTM your very own Arkham Asylum. Us idiots can be the rogues gallery. There’s only a handful of us here, so we shouldn’t have too hard of a time appointing names to us. NJ can be the Joker, O:Q can be the Riddler, lvgrnfan (the fuck does that mean anyway?) can be the Penguin, Dream Evil can be the Scarecrow, Eye9 can be Two-Face, unspOOLed can be Clay Face, Roush can be Catwoman, radardude65 can be Mr. Freeze. It's fucking perfect, man. I call dibs on Composite Superman!

WTF???  Need I remind you that I actually had to shorten my initial post on this board because it exceeded the maximum length allowed!?!?  Might as well call me Rodney Fuckin' Dangerfield!

Goddamn it, I knew I'd forget somebody. Ok justbob, you can be Bane, the guy who broke Batman's back. That's gotta be worth something, yeah? ;)

lvgrnfan (the fuck does that mean anyway?)

Not sure if this was part of your joke, but my username was meant to show that I'm a fan of Kerry Livgren, the Chris Degarmo of the band Kansas (probably not a fair comparison since Kansas never swan-dove as hard as the Ryche did after Kerry's departure).

Thanks man. I was rattling off all the names, wrote yours out, paused and thought to myself "what the fuck does that mean anyway?" So stream of consciousness, I just threw that in as I went. Thanks for the clarification.
