The discography police were then reduced to waiting for some poor innocent to come along and declare their love of Eric Clapton or Bob Seger or some other 70s or 80s rocker still to be rehabilitated by the critics.

Hmmm - if you're referring to what I think you're referring to, that's not how I remember it. I think the knives came out for one particular poster because of that person's rudeness, aggression, self-righteousness and fondness for playing off other posters against each other than for their taste in music or for their politics. I've seen people on here who've admitted to liking music that's just as popular-but-unhip as Clapton or Seger who haven't been flamed about it because their posts were more civil. A poor innocent? That's what he'd have you believe.
