I so severely cringed when I first heard it that for only one disastrous (and shameful) moment, I thought throwing all my PSB collection out of the window to the street. Now I am addicted to the song; cannot stop playing it five or six times a day; if my wife lets it, I can play it all day long :)
"If my wife lets it". When I read or listen things like that, I hate it. Who is your wife to forbide you listening PSB records as much as you want?.
First she is my wife and it is not up to you to question who she is or not; she can do or say whatever she likes to me. Stop now and know your place dumbshit. Secondly, she does not forbid me; she just feels overwhelmed when I play a song twenty times back to back at the top sound of my loudspeakers and I respect her because we are living together in a tiny flat and she does not have to like PSB and tolerate an all-day ongoing PSB concert just because I adore them.
I think nickname was joking. But actually he made a comment about my mother the other day so he deserves it.

The more I listen to At Rock Bottom, the more I hear the little nuances in the production and I've actually got to take back my "sparseness" comment - loving the simplicity, but it's not sparse by any means. It's a lovely mid-tempo tune, with the best lyrics from the three B-sides IMHO (I was always a sucker for melancholy).
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

It was because you were looking for that. If you behave like a rude person with me, don't expect from me something good.

Don't bully.

I wasn't rude at all. You misinterpreted an innocuous comment I made. So is Mr Tennant a nickname of nickname or vice versa?

It's an amazing way of "thinking", actually. Trolling the forum for years and now complaining he's being bullied. Maybe we should start a poll about that. I'm sure he doesn't even buy the records.

Nickname probably isnt a he or a she. we've probably been talking to a bot all these years. "Nickname" is probably just some little bot program some 15 year old hacker created in 10 minutes, uploaded it, it found its way to the PSB forum and became sentient and self aware not unlike the skynet virus and just randomly posts a hodgepodge of text it culls from this forum in no apparent order.

:D Once upon a time, there was a Spanish lady in forums whom even Neil and Chris were eager to get rid of and end all communication/ contact/ interaction whatsoever (I forgot her name but I had come across her in Twitter at the time of Hotspot release and was surprised to see her enthuasism to talk to Neil and Chris after all these years- hope I will remember her name in time). Maybe Nickname is her reincarnation just to avoid being recognized?

No, she was literally crazy. Nickname isn't that, he just thinks his views are fact instead of opinions.

    No, he is a man. Back in the day, when he took over, controlled and ruined the Spanish newsletter called Unadiscoteca on Yahoo groups he used to post ridiculous pics of him doing what I could only describe as "the eagle dance" at a wedding, or pics of him with his mum and her purse at a concert. Earlier than that he used to be super creepy on the Spanish IRC PSB chat channel... I know his real name but of course I'm not going to disclose that because there are limits one shouldn't cross, I guess. Oh, and he thinks I am someone I am not, which is quite funny.
