Well then, howdy!

Here's an insightful topic: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....ollection/

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

I expected this forum to be full of intelligent and informed insight re. the Beatles.

But I was mislead!

It's full of the most unscholarly drivel one can imagine.

It is mostly on the level of a bunch of 14 year old girls still living in 1963 and hysterically discussing in the playground who is their favourite member of the band .

The so-called musicology forum is laughable!

And I don't like being greeting with the word 'Howdy'.

I don't think anyone's misled you. It's an open access forum. You didn't have to register and post here, and should have been able to see what the contents were before you did so. If you didn't do so you don't really have the right to complain about being misled.

Yes, there are probably too many "Which x is your favourite"-type threads, but you can ignore them should you wish.

The recording and musicology section is a place for people to post slightly more technical stuff. Again, people can ignore that if they're not interested - that's why it's in a separate section. If you want to start a scholarly discussion go right ahead. You will get people joining in. If you are unable to do so then don't complain.

The 'Howdy' greeting is a WordPress default thing. I don't know if it can be changed. Regardless, it sounds like you've got a chip on your shoulder that's bigger than your feet. If you don't like this forum try another - there are dozens of Beatles discussion sites across the web.

Among the "scholarly" topics started by Yhaal House:

George's first foray into exotic instruments was not the sitar...
"I was reading an article by mysterious musicologist & mystic Krick Stahlschwanz that said that George's first interest in exotic instruments was the Vulcan Arse Flute."

Ringo's Famous Hot Water Bottle Collection...
"It's a shame the Beatles never recorded his 'Oh Bugger My Hot Water Bottle Burst In The Night' tune when he proffered it for consideration during the Let It Be/ Get Back sessions."

May I point out to you mister stick in his butt, that this would probably go under the Getting Better forum and possibly under the thread Improvements, not Recording and musicology! Even though you made one sentence about the musicology; however, the rest of it was about the site itself! Furthermore, if you don't like it, leave! No one is holding a gun to your head making you stay!

Beatle fans come in all shapes and sizes and all different age groups. So many young people have discovered the Beatles for their first time on this site which I find exceptional. The information that this site offers is excellent. This is by far the best site available to fans. I agree that some topics may not appeal to everyone but you have a choice on what you would like to respond to. There is something for everyone here to enjoy and this site has brighten the world for so many of us fans. I have been a part of this forum for two years now and those who know me, know I take things very seriously and like to respond with something physiological to inject regarding any topic I appear on. It is important to me to be real and I feel I can be myself with my comments and the forum's response has help me grow not only as a fan but a human being. Joe has done a tremendous job putting together this site and I want to take this time once again to thank him.

That one actually posed a worthwhile question worth discussing - too bad it was posed in such a smug, condescending manner.

I consider this forum a gateway to bigger things for new Beatle fans, hence there a lot more "simplistic" (if you will) threads.

I like it here because I get to see the new generation of fans who are just discovering a bigger world of music come and ask questions of us old-timers.  Instead of endlessly arguing over an extra half-second of reverb on a Mexican fold-down mono pressing of 'Abbey Road', we get to make recommendations about how to explore the Beatle universe.

If you want to discuss the serious nuts and bolts, go to http://www.bootlegzone.com and dig through their forums.  You will not be disappointed.  Overwhelmed, yes.  Disappointed, no.
