RE: can we shut the door on this now?

Now that Andrew has spoken...can we just all go on with our lives?
Obviously there are those of us who can and will continue to talk about music that borders on the melodic (and thanks to them, I have found some new music, as have others)...
And then there are those of us who are purists...I guess if you see a subject matter that doesn't thrill ya, don't read it. Start your own topics.
But this incessant bickering is insane. Aren't we all on the same side at the end of a day?
PS...someone want to tell me how classic Van Halen is more melodic rock than something like Aha? An argument could easily be made that stuff from VH1 is too raw and heavy to be considered melodic, no?
[this is not a knock on VH...VH1 is a CLASSIC...just showing an example of where in the hell do you draw the line.]
