Oh buddy, you are very mistaken. You'd be surprised by the stuff I'm asked to remove. But, I totally understand why they do it. Fans don't often see a full picture of a situation so people often misinterpret intentions about why they may or may not want information out there. I've learned the hard way (posting stuff I wasn't supposed to), about why they're very specific about the information they want out there. It's for that reason that when asked I comply. If I think they're being a little too ... particular, I have a decent enough relationship that I can push back or ask for clarification. And it's through that I've gained an appreciation of why they tend keep lots of information very close and why 99.5% of the time I just remove something when they ask.

 

Oh ok. That's honestly really surprising to me because I don't see how this info is harmful enough for them to peruse forums looking for it. If anything, it seems good for hype and sales.

Whilst I understand why they do it, I think it's bullshit that management can ask for posts to be taken down whenever. We're just excited fans, it's not like we're spilling government secrets. Whatever happened to free speech?

How would you like it if you told someone all your secrets then they starting posting them all over the internet for the world to see? I'm sure you'd want them taken down as well.

I wouldn't be happy about it no, but I'd be more frustrated with myself for telling them in the first place

Well that's probably how their management feels. They didn't want that getting out for a reason.

Specific information about the recording process is probably taken down because people started to build a timeframe around that, while I think there's not much of a timeframe set for the release of the new album.

Sometimes I wonder what strategy they have. GDC is closely watched but you can find lots of insider and personal stuff on other websites. I suppose it's the connection with gda that makes this forum more read by outsiders.

I know, right? Does Green Day's management have someone on their payroll whose job is to read this forum?? It seems to be closely monitored.  Billie Joe probably wasn't supposed to say what he said the other day, but he's probably getting excited, too! I hope he doesn't get into too much trouble!

So that guy's encounter with Billie Joe was posted as a news item over on Chorus (formerly AbsolutePunk), citing GDC as the source.

Now that we know someone from GD's management team is in Andres' ear about what can and cannot be posted here, it begs the question - how much authority does the management team or the record company have over dissemination of this kind of info, from a legal standpoint? If they are following this forum, it stands to reason somebody is keeping tabs on other news outlets too.

Can someone similarly go to Jason Tate and say, "Hey you need to take this down. It's privileged information"? What if he was to refuse? Then what?

I think Andres said once that while they can't force him to take stuff down, he does it to maintain the relationship he has with Green Day. It's a mutual respect, and doing so probably gives this forum some wiggle room in terms of what it can and can't do in the name of the band.

Why do you think Seagull was allowed back in the midst of majority public hatred? #conspiracy

Actually...when Seagull was allowed back most of the forum was in favor or indifferent about it. There were only a few that didn't want him back.

What majority public hatred? Seems I missed some drama.

They can't make us take it down, but they can take us to court for copyright fringe ment if they really want.

You can believe whatever you want, but there is a reason that both of my posts with my insider information were removed...along with any posts that quoted or referenced the information I had brought here. His job at Jingletown was threatened because somebody involved with the band found out that the two of us were Facebook friends. So when he messaged me in a panic I asked Carling to have all the posts removed so that his job wouldn't be jeopardized.

wait..... you posted secret info your friend told you and as a result his job was put in jeopardy???? that's kind of shitty dude.

He OK'd it. Told him I wouldn't use his name or give up what he did. But when it became a problem I made sure it all got removed.
