When I talk about fans, I'm talking in general.

They see us as a necessary evil and treat half of us with the contempt they deserve.

I suspect they likely have mixed feelings about their fans. On the one hand they're probably grateful for the fans's support and appreciation. On the other hand living under fan scrutiny and occasional obsession probably feels strange and often claustrophobic.

I think most of us are probably twice as old, and half as cool, as PSB wish we were. But I hope they love us anyway.
Love comes quickly, but is a catastrophe and a bourgeois construct etc.

They don’t know what we want but they can’t give it anymore.

Why has anyone bothered to vote on the latest "what poll can I think of to get attention" poll from this guy? Don't encourage him, it just encourages him to dream up the next inane one, like...

Looking back at their career what do you think Pet Shop Boys' attitude to cheese is?

- They secretly love it but are afraid to directly address the issue
- They are definitely anti-cheese but won't say why
- They like the intentions behind cheese but not the finished product
- They dislike all dairy products with the exception of cheese
- They don't consider cheese a dairy product because they're f*** vegans
- They don't exclusively care about cheese as their songs cover all sorts of dairy issues
- They've never heard of cheese
- Paneernaro and For your own gouda are secret cheese anthems.

The forum is almost dead these days and nobody is going to pay me to create a poll. I do it because I want to and some other people want to take part of it.

If you don't like it, you don't even need to come to this thread.

It's easy, it's so easy!. :dance:

I don't think they either love us or hate us!!!! I'd probably say we're a "necessary evil" :lol:

They appreciate us, but they also appreciate their space.

The same thing I do, at this point. As we get older the men are mostly dorks and the women are mostly overweight fruit flys. Not exclusively, but mostly. At least here I’m America.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

I think that they absolutely appreciate the support fans give them both by buying records and attending shows. I'm guessing that some of the more hardcore fans, aka some that post here and other groups, probably scare them a bit.
