Ah yeah, thank you for clearing this up. I knew about half of it, but as I said I don't read mygnr often, so I didn't know how this built up (I'd heard about yt vids being taken down though).

P.S. How about switching our jobs for a month? Wink

In addition to what @Soulmonster said, it involves the black market of unreleased material and leaks (mainly from the CD era). The person who is allegedly behind recent leaks is presumed to be one of the people who go after youtubers and fans/communities that share bootlegs online. The same person also allegedly scammed a fan who paid him a lot of money to buy one of the leaks and then threatened their family.
This, if true, is the most serious aspect of this messy story that goes beyond forum war and internet trolling.

Thanks to @Soulmonster and @Blackstar for the clarifications. I read the open letter, but I did not know exactly what had happened.

There is so much drama in GN'R land. It tends to flare up when the fan base is bored and/or pissed. This time, at least, there seems to be some good reason for it. But the band seems to consider us nutcases that are best avoided. We aren't, of course Smile

I'm kinda glad I'm here in this safe haven. Wink
There used to be some heated discussions in other GNR forums, sometimes it was fun to participate, but nowadays it's better to walk away from the drama...

First day back at work after the summer vacation. And also my youngest daughter's first day at school. Well, school doesn't start in yer a couple of weeks, but we have something called SFO in Norway which is a service where kids can be at school also outside of school hours. It makes it easier when both parents work, and is great for the kids because they can play with all their friends while we have some adults that supervise it.

It's the benefits of having a very small forum. Very small, yes, but very informative and valuable.
