You've already criticized me for (re-)opening threads. This led to a certain kind of self-censorship.

This was not really meant as "criticism", just a thought - wouldn't it be easier to create a new topic instead of posting in an old 2009 thread (talking about "strange posts" which are long deleted)?  :?

I'm not half as engaged like
e.g. Susanna

Is that me?
I'm sorry if I disappeared but I've never written so much anyway. But I read the forum quite often.

I don't think it is dead, it's just hibernated. I'm sure it will emerge soon when news from the band will be released.

And thanks to David and to all the others who keep it alive

This happened in 2004 when Perry was still in the band:

I know that my activity has dropped as well, inevitably, but despite an
earlier announcement, the move of curefans didn't materialize to date
and I wonder why.

apologies for the lack of communication on this, this is my bad. But the forum is currently running in another server, which is much faster and secure. This was step one, and step two would be the upgrade. I still need to find time to do this, pretty busy at work plus Slowdive (my other favorite band) is very active this year so my time for The Cure is a bit reduced (shame on me!)... but I promise to come here every day and post a few things every week. Long life to The Cure and long life to Curefans.com! :smth023

Is that what you and maybe others want? I don't know. I'm not half as engaged like
e.g. Susanna but I refused to have an fb account, for good reasons. Somebody missed
a proper fan reaction here in 2009 and I felt the same at times. No reason for argument.

As for the modern life is rubbish theory, Tolhurst says older music listeners just get lazy: "I really dislike when people say there is no good music around anyone. If you think that you are not looking hard enough or you are maybe even to old to look.

"I am kinda lucky though I am also able to listen to stuff my son Gray tells me about. Recently I have been listening to Broadcast and Caribou.”

Writing about the ill-fated decision to sue Smith and record label Fiction for a greater cut of royalties and co-ownership of the band’s name is one such moment of exposure. In hindsight, Tolhurst admits that pursuing the case, which dragged on for much of the 90s, was connected to his deep sense of hurt at having been expelled from the band.

“It was partially a relief, but there was a lot of sadness with it as well,” he says of leaving the band. “I felt expelled from my family.”

A coolfan said goodbye to me officially.

Any reasons why he/she said "goodbye" (officially or inofficialy)?   :?

(Btw, you chose a strange thread for posting this "news" - well, I just read the above posts from 2009 and I didn't know about these "happenings" back then and they're pretty irrelevant now.)

Anyway, this forum is as dead as YOU (I'm talkin' to all of the members here) want it to be.  :o
Do not post anything Cure-ish or any Cure news or links you may find on the net. Do not say "thank you" when others post interesting links or something. Do not reply to any questions. Don't ask any questions. Don't talk about other music you like. ...
Then it will soon be dead indeed.  :(
