...that people on here find it necessary to make racial slurs/comments? (I'm referring, of course, to the part of Ted's response where he says, "HEY DJKRAUT..."

We had a witchhunt a while back with Mark, and I, for one, don't want that to become a regular thing.


A flame war is a flame war, and this one may have been warranted. If Klaus was talking out of his arse with regards to the singing being off-key, or if he had a hidden agenda, then I can see how Ted had every right to be upset and to defend himself. I can even understand him lashing out. Tempers flare. But why bring race into it? Why alienate and/or offend every German who reads this board and/or buys the music?

I haven't heard Lovemetal, so I can't comment on it's quality. I actually really enjoyed the first Melodica album. But at this point, I'm not sure that I'm gonna buy Lovemetal. The racial thing always leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I'm not tryin' to start something here. Honest to God, I'm not. Those of you who have known me over the 3-4 years that I've been here will, I'm confident, surely attest to the fact that I do not post on this board to stir the pot, cause problems, or engage (or even often participate) in flame wars. I just don't understand why race even had to enter into this discussion. Are we gonna start calling each other spics, limeys, chinks, gooks, etc. everytime we have a disagreement? If I'm over-reacting, then I apologize. But again, this just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe I'm over-sensitive this way. I don't know. I'm sure some of you will be thining so as you read this. I dunno. I know I can handle profanity, insults, etc., but I just hate it when it gets racial.

Just my $0.02. I'll step down off my soapbox now. Flame on...
