Anyone else find that annoying ?

Thank you ! Glad to know I'm not the only one

And yes forgot to mention the BFC FB group, there it's not so much about hashtags but about showing off people's collection . Can't the just take a pic of their whole collection ? :roll:

I suppose the band don't see the posts of the FB group but wonder if the cringe what they see on Twitter and Instagram . FFS someone had to even say to stop with the unnecessary # that this fan account keep posting on Damon's daughter IG a few weeks ago :roll:

Just had a gander over there at that Facebook group. Can't fathom why people would use that when they could be here. Yeah, let's start a conversation which elicits, say, three or four really short replies, and then that's it. Fizzles out. On to the next! Maybe forums are old hat, but for what I want to do, which is discuss the band in depth, this is the place to be.

It's funny, I sort of regard this place (and the old forum) as the seat of Blur fandom. But it's really just a select few of us in a sea of other fans out there in reality.

I'm definitely the same. I kinda forget other big Blur fans exist, and then the FB Blur Fan Club reminds me we're not quite as esoteric as I think, even if they don't have conversations like on here.

I suppose the BFC FB group was made in good spirit but there is not much to discuss.
Agree with you, proper discussions are made in band´s forum , neither TW or FB can do that, which is unbelivable that even with the release of TMW mgmt / record label didn´t try to keep the old forum.

Although I lurk here more than post , I´m very happy that the posts / discussiones are not related to Blur member´s nose, bikes, teeth or like this :roll:

I'm embarrassed to be a female fan when I read fanatical, juvenile nonsense like that!

But the thing to remember is that the majority of fans who do act like that are literally juvenile females. I was much the same when I was younger. Like, I look back at some of the things I said and did in my early fandom days and it makes me cringe. But y'know what, I was having fun. I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of, really.

there are some cringeworthy things that one would understand if they were teenagers but they are not :? So there is really no excuse for that behaviour

I think the proper forums like this are still the best. There is a kind of community. Other kinds of social media tend to attract transient people.
