Hi, there.

I thought the whole thing was pretty hilarious. But man, can that Idle Words guy ever write - I'd better put him on my next album!

I think this kind of thing can be eliminated through the Bulletin Board settings. For example on Matador Records, employees are identified by the Matador flag logo so you always know it's really them.

This kind of situation isn't that unusual. Mike Watt (of the Minutemen and latterly of the Stooges) is a regular contributor to the Yahoo group dedicated to his music, as is Derrick Bostrom to the similar Meat Puppets list.

this is probally unrelated but yea artist who post on their site is not unusual.

Question: Are you really answering these questions or is
it some moron at Interscope?
Answer: You're right, there are some morons at Interscope, but they're too busy to be answering anyone's letters. Trust me. (j.dylan)

Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.

The important thing isn't doing, but knowing how you do it.
