There is a difference between not focusing all your energy on something, and outright ridiculing and making fun of people who do like those artists to the point where the thread title specifically bans their mention.
To be fair, you should probably read that thread. Aside from people saying "no" to certain acts, nobody is really mocking anyone.
Your 2013 thread has been fine so far, but I feared a continuation of the behavior in the 2012 thread, where there was alot of outright mocking and belittlement of anyone who would speak out in support of Skrillex, Deadmau5, etc.
The whole point of the other thread is that it's the underdog. The music mentioned in there is criminally under represented at Bonnaroo while the "music" in this thread is attended en masse by shirtless bros who are "there for the party."
I know this is directed at Jess, but allow me to answer. It bothers me because I LIKE this music, I think it's well produced and fun, and I think it has merit. If people disagree with me, it's fine. But when people come with this attitude of "No, you have terrible taste and you're incorrect, this music is terrible by definition" . Well Quack you. If you don't like it, fine. But don't tell me I'm wrong for liking it. And if we're not welcomed to discuss it in the underdog thread I want there to be somewhere we can discuss it
