Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

OK, da facts is da facts, I won't argue with that.

It seems to me there are precious few women here, but that's just an impression I had.

I'm a big fan of freedom of expression, and don't think women need me to argue on their behalf in casual discussion group on the internet, so I won't get my pants in a bunch over your babe posts from that point of view.

But if heaping scorn and ridicule on those who dislike the babe posts is the real motive, as Analog Scott suggests, I'm not so thrilled about it. As it is, much of the internet is devoted to beautiful babes. The WSJ, NY Times and other major media have written about the porn industry on the internet and the numbers are amazing. And in the non-porn context, beauty is one of the main tools in the internet's and our society's entertainment and relentless sales pitch.

This forum is a bit of an internet refuge for those who have a serious interest in music. Nothing wrong with beautiful women writing or playing that music, but many here feel this is one place on the internet where music can be the central topic, rather than hot babes. No need to ridicule or deride those who feel that way.

Why don't you keep posting about the babe musicians, but focusing on the music with fewer pictures and without pet names or implied or actual references to their hotness? Trust me, I can figure out when a musician (or any woman) is hot without your help. Those who want to look at the hot babes can do that, while those who want to focus on the music without distraction can do that. ;-)
