Odds that Chris/Neil read this forum?

#1 Post by verbow79 »

I put @ 20%. I haven't read evidence in interviews that referenced the forum....but I still think Chris might casually check here infrequently. Neil seems like he'd be more heavily into Facebook, Instagram, etc while Chris doesn't seem like the type to care and would venture off the social media path to read feedback.

If you're reading Chris.....please release a proper version of It's Not Unusual. Glad All Over and New Boy were lesser versions of songs that got proper versions, so hoping that it's on the future radar somewhere :clap:

They have seen the forum. Neil has described it as "bitchy" in the past, (which I don't disagree with at times).
I doubt they'd take advice from us, didn't Neil say he reads Facebook comments sometimes?

i wouldn't normally do this kind of thing
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

I thought he used some form of the word "churlish".

It's a shame because there are some genuinely good suggestions here that they could really pick up on, but I guess sorting the wheat from the chaff could get to be a bore.

Where did the "banging and lasers" thing come from? Wasn't that someone on here who said that, or was that from one of Geowayne's comments sections in his weekly surveys? They definitely read that comment and took it on board.

Oh the irony of Neil campaigning for privacy and against ID cards etc. but using Facebook! I cannot imagine Chris reading any of these comments. He’s far too aloof.

I remember a pet text or something when he mentioned the forum and said something like "frequently rude and bitchy!"

They don't seem to have read the complaints about the Official Store.

A case in point as to why they should take a peek from time to time, but filtering out the noise would be a pain.

Didn't Neil read some complaints here about not including songs from Behaviour and "The boy who couldn't..." after the 1st night of 2016 ROH?

Yes, that was in Annually 2017, I guess.

Yeah, that was me. I posted it on Wayne’s site, so proof enough that one of them visits that site. Chris once mentioned he liked the website “with all the lists”, again alluding to Wayne’s site.
More strobes and BANGING, please!

TBH I think that any celebrity reading social media about them would probably develop a nasty aftertaste in their mouth for the whole thing.
I would think that if there was a logical approach to gleaning anything from social media they would pay someone to navigate sites like this and report back as to what the pulse of the fanbase is.
