Anonymous said: Just stumbled across this while googling. Everything you say about punk tends to be wrong. Not a difference of opinion thing, you seem to repeatedly and purposefully misinterpret meanings of words like "hardcore" and the entire history of punk music to make these fairly inane points. The rest of the blog is mostly you commenting on shit you haven't actually read/seen? I'd imagine you don't talk to anyone else who actually likes hardcore music in your country(Ireland?) or anything you speak about

Well, thanks for the constructive criticism. I’ll do my best to rectify those vague points in future. You caught me driving without a punk license!
