BB's a tyrant, you're a martyr. Bad BB! Poor unfortunate AoS, who doesn't have a history of inflammatory, insulting posts at all. I don't know why anyone would doubt you.

On the plus side, every time I see this thread title I think of the Maccabeats and how awesome their latest video is. So the thread necromancy, like necromancy in the real world, wasn't all bad!

Lazy and hypocritical, no.
High-handed and obstinant, yes.

Oh, man, I haven't snort-laughed out loud for a forum gag in awhile! 'Obstinant' is really subjective, but 'high-handed'? Can you point to anything, anywhere, that would characterize either him or his moderation as high-handed? I think if you asked around, you'd be-amazing!-completely alone there.

But then it's not like you're being honest in the first place, hence the gag!

He was nice enough not to edit your post to correct your spelling of "obstinate," which a more high-handed moderator might have done. [Big Grin]

There was a post that was deleted from another thread on February 23, that may have been construed as abusive.

This one, no way.

Armoth - my wife and I were talking about your videos recently (since this thread came back out of obscurity!) and we were wondering something...

I think I read somewhere (either in this thread or one of the linked articles) that Maccabeats was a university music group...does that mean that the group has yearly turnover as one class graduates and another comes in?

We originated as a university group. Currently, you have to be a student or an alumnus of Yeshiva University to join. We've taken on new members every year, except for this one (because, at this point, no one is leaving...)

Since the Maccabeats did well, two other acapella groups have sprung up at Yeshiva University, so we feel like we've passed on the torch.

I am being "honest". My post was in no way inappropriate and it should not have been deleted.

Armoth: Just to let you know, I think someone is mining your YouTube subscribees - I've been invited to be friends with two Jewish channels on YouTube. They are SalomonSaysVideo and LoriAlmostLiveVideo. The only connection I can figure is that I'm subscribed to the Maccabeats.

If I had a YouTube channel, I would contact the people using my list and ask them nicely to stop.

I guess I (as the invitee) could contact them and let them know that not everyone who subscribes to the Maccabeats is Jewish ...

lol - i just got a friend request.

It's not new to us. The second our video did very well, other Jewish groups that wanted the same viral quality have been hounding us. Every new Jewish thing gets posted on our facebook wall (which I promptly delete). And they even post their videos in comments in our videos.

It's now a popular way to advertise your video as: "Maccabeats are old news - this is better"

or "Better than Maccabeats!!!"

Which...i find hurtful...cuz, u know, i'm not a brand. I'm a person.

You know what I'm saying. There are real people behind this stuff, and you hurt their feelings when you divorce their brand from their personhood.

You are absolutely right. Nonetheless, you would be well advised to try not to take this sort of thing so personally.

Funny timing, I meant to look this thread up.

I had no idea the Maccabeats were on Spotify! It was suggested to me today. Got to relisten to a lot of old favorites.

I also thought of you guys because the Sing-Off just started again, and I'm sad you never made it onto the show.
