Really classy dig at faithful readers of your magazine there at the end CL (or maybe I should say "MK", since it sounds like that was written in his standard "talking down to the ignorant locals" writing style).
I'm sure that the people that were vocal regarding the removal of the "Soundboard" section of your newspaper really appreciate the fact that they were such a "hot contender" for this particular "Best Of" award alongside a bunch of clueless homophobes that helped NC to make gay marriage even "illegaler" than it already was.
The only reason it was only "temporarily" removed is because readers raised holy hell about it. MK and whoever is making the decisions over there had decided to turn it into an exclusively online thing. It was a failure and was thankfully brought back within a month due to overwhelming response from musicians, business and club owners, and last of all READERS. The comparison of music fans to "Pitbulls" in the opening of that particular issue was pretty classless and passive agressive as well, but at least I figured that it was done at that point.
Then, here we are, MONTHS later, and this is STILL getting brought up. I wasn't one of the people that was "vicious and whiney" when this first came up, but I certainly agreed that it was a dumb move.
So please let it go, and most importantly, grow up. The soundboard online thing didn't work. It was a failure. If anything, be THANKFUL that people still want to read ANYTHING in print, and be THANKFUL for your readers, even the most vocal ones. Don't take it personally, and maybe have the passive-agressive style take a break for a while. It's immature and unbecoming of an otherwise terrific publication.
Glad to hear (and soon, see) that this has been remedied.
What in the heck are you talking about? Charlotte is the most populated city in NC and in the top 20 nationwide. Every single "big" city you listed as a alternative for people who want to live in a big city doesn't even come close to Charlotte in terms of how many people live there. Charlotte IS a big city. Small town? Ha!
