I highly suspect Peter Angus is the same person as FanofProg022 and Andy011. It is the only explanation for his insult against TCat. Some people...

I've been insulted by the best and Peter Angus (probably stole his name from Henry Cow and thinks he's clever) is not even good at insulting.  Stuff like that just goes in one ear and out the other.  Or in one eye and out the other . . . or something.  Anyway, what was I talking about?

I don't think it's exactly an "abuse", but if one doesn't like prog why wastes his/her time by rating prog artists?
Most of all, if 90%of the ratings is 1-star, do you know anybody purchasing or listening to hundreds of albums he/she doesn't like?

A lot of pompous t**t amongst some of these 'reviews'.

^ this is how this lovely gentleman/gentlewoman starts' their review, by belittling other peoples' opinions of the album. Not a good look.

Hey, Ryan, maybe try not being so itchy - there has to be some kind of tolerance for strong opinions, I can see no harm or wrongdoing on this review to be honest.
Yours Sincerely

I have to disagree with you, Jose. Calling out other reviewers within a review has never been tolerated. Especially when including a vulgar pejorative.

We are committed to ensuring that all the reviews on the site conform to the guidelines. When you submit a review, you are required to acknowledge that you have read those guidelines, by clicking on a box in the form.

If your review has been deleted, it will be because it did not comply with the guidelines in full. Common reasons for deleting reviews are:

The review just says this album is great you must buy it, or this album is bad, do not buy it, without going into any detail.
The review is not written in English
The review is incoherent, and does not make sense.
The review criticises other reviews or reviewers.
The review is insulting or derogatory towards the artist
The main focus of the review is points which should be discussed in the forum


I see no problem with making points of disagreement with the consensus, but the sort of derogatory needling demonstrated in the referenced review has no place among us civilized pompous [email protected]

OMG, he never refers anyone by name, just a generic criticism (maybe intending to be funny ?).

I do greatly value our civil habitat around here, but will never align with PC extremism (not saying you are deffending it, btw, quite impossible judging by the panhead you so proudly wear LOL)

The pan is a designation of certifiable pompousness.

I love the inclusive nature of our review section. But being on guard against PC extremism should not come at the cost of allowing our reviews to devolve into a Yahoo or YouTube comment section.

^ I agree with you man.. that wasn't an album review.. it is rant.   I'd deep 6 it and drop him a nice note.  Next time.. just review the album.. or find another site.. like yahoo or youtube to go on off rants unrelated to the album itself

There are ways of disagreeing with something that do not involve the use of expletives. I may believe other people's opinion to be nonsense, but I'd never write it in such terms. Leaving that review as it is would legitimate other people to do the same, and - even more important - damage the credibility of the site. PA has already got enough flak for allowing anyone to post reviews without any editing from the site's admins (which definitely does non happen on other websites). And this is nothing to do with political correctness, but simply with being civil - which, in my opinion, is the bare minimum required in human interaction.

Sorry for the double post, but I just had a look at the reviewer's profile, and found that he posted another review along the same lines - though without profanity. I am not particularly convinced that dedicating the first two paragraphs to decrying other people's opinion is a good idea, but at least he/she refrained from name-calling. I wouldn't be surprised to see other reviews from him/her along the same lines.

a good example would be my infamous DT review darling. good god how I skirted the line.. and created the legendary review it was.. after the forum went bat sh*t crazy after I posted it.. remember it went all the way to admins before they saw that while I drove all over the line... I was smart enough to never cross it and also mainly because they were in turn smart enough to see what the real target of my venom in the guise of a review really was. It wasn't DT or even the reviewers I spoofed

I simply saw that the review wasn't a review, it was a commentary that this person didn't like the way other people reviewed the album. I really don't care if it gets removed or not, i was simply doing my part by pointing it out since looking at the rules it seems to violate one of them. The review is in poor taste in my opinion, and if i was running the site i'd remove it, but completely up to the site managers.
