Thread: R.I.P. Neil Peart

    ^^ I'd love to the hear Spectrum show from May 22, 1981, but it's my understanding that the only recording floating around is pretty terrible.

    are RIP threads ok on the main board now?
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    no actually... just wondering if there's any rule,
    or if it just depends on whether or not the moderator thinks one artist is more worthy than another?

    That is a fair question in my view. I like the heck out of Rush and Neil, however, it would be helpful to learn if there is a dividing line between artists relative to the RIP aspect. Is it up to the moderators? Perhaps a specific RIP forum post would serve to acknowledge all the great artists (or those who are not considered great, but very good) who have passed on. I noticed with much sadness the passing of Lyle Mays.

    Is the dead person Neil frickin Peart? Yes - front page, No - somewhere else.

    What difference does it make where the RIP thread is? If a major prog artists passes I think it's worthy. I could never imagine, say, Jon Anderson's death being relegated to off-topic.

    Really, I wish I had so few problems in my life that I worried about such things.

    Rule of thumb in my book:

    Major Prog artist dies, front page. Bit actor and game show celebritty Orson Bean dies, off-topic.

    Why not just leave it alone? The moderators appear fine with it.

    Maybe the most reasonable explanation is the most simple. We aren’t constantly “policing” the site 24/7, nor do we want to. Things get missed.

    The answer is that all RIP threads should be started in the OT Music & Arts forum.

    fair enough... it was just puzzling that some progressive music artist RIPs are instantly deemed unworthy and moved elsewhere while others are allowed to sit on the main board for weeks. That's why I was wondering if there is a rule or if it is just moderator personal preference regarding who is worthy to sit on the main board.

    Good to know that all RIPs should be moved from the main board with no exceptions.

    It usually happens as a result of a poster not knowing where to post it, maybe occasionally out of "defiance". Often I will change it when I catch it. We will certainly change it if someone tells us. But speaking for myself (not for Sean or Duncan), I view this website using "new posts". So I often don't see which forum something is in unless I click on the thread.

    I deem that explanation worthy.

    good explanation... I was merely looking for clarification of the rule since this thread has been left on the main board for several weeks and for some reason Lyle Mays was deemed unworthy of the main board in less than a day. Poor guy didn't even get one week on the main board

    Of all the ridiculous things to be concerned with. Typical, though. At least it took 11 pages this time.

    I believe I did initially post this in the Off Topic section, and it re-appeared in the main board when it got merged with a second, later thread that someone else started without checking first. But I also use the New Posts feature (I can't imagine wanting to do it any other way, personally), so silly concerns such as "Why is this thread here and that one there" are never a part of my life. Nor will I ever be the kind of person who sweats the small stuff like this - but it takes all kinds, I suppose.

    Congratualtions MT! You've tried to derail a thread with hundreds of heartfelt posts from members who are truly sad over Neil's passing. I'm certain you don't even like Rush and you comparison shows how you were offended. You deleted your first post. Just becuase this thread is not about obscure artists like the latest Mongolian nose flute player, you get upset. Get a life.

    actually, I liked Rush and Neil Peart. Odd that there are people here that would promote a "don't ask questions" ideology. I do not think Neil would approve of that.

    Agreed. I bought the first Rush "explosion" album after it was released and especially when they travelled down the more progressive road, I enjoyed them immensely. A great band. When one starts to place a value on another's life after death, it becomes quite unseemly. To some here, the passing of Lyle Mays was just as traumatic as the death of Neil Peart. I am one of those.

    No one is disrespected by placing RIP notices in the Off Topic forum.

    What's unseemly is for MT to bark and whine about such trivial matters in the Lyle Mays thread, and when zero attention is paid to him there, to march on over to this one and de-rail it with his petty nonsense.

    Those of us who view the entire forum at once via the New Posts feature never even take notice of which sub-forum the threads are in. The RIP threads could be in a section titled "Candy Floss And Rainbows" for all I care. What's important is the content of the threads, particularly the heartfelt responses by our fellow forumers when it comes to losing personal heroes like Peart or Mays. What isn't important is all...this.
