I've always felt that the Crowded House/Frenz community has been a like minded and mostly agreeing place. Sure, we have different opinions but there's always underlying respect. However, after the recent business with Mark Hart, I'm worried what will become of this fandom.
Neil's decision has been extremely divisive and have no doubt that no matter what some people will be unhappy with the result. I, myself have my reservations. Still it will be interesting to see what becomes of the band.
In light of this decision, I would like to ask everyone to remain civil and as kind as ever in our discussions. Always try to be respectful of the musicians and other fans and remember the person. Never resort to name calling or personal attacks. It may seem silly but I have seen many similar events taking place in other fan circles and I would hate for it to spread to this one. But I've seen similar things happen and I'm worried.
