I give dude a passing grade: this is a social message board, afterall, which is queer as all fuckin' shit to begin with, and certainly no less gay than a quote-unquote culture blog; plus, the topic link doesn't suggest anything about Sailor Jerry, which means everyone looked at it because you wanted to read about Axl Rose.
Bad points: the Sailor Jerry "brand" is cashing in on a dead counter-culture icon a-lah Von Dutch, neither of whom were given much of a shit about by the fancy trendsters of their respective time-place, back when time-place meant more than it does than with a computer internet connection. Von Dutch was, in practice, all shitty about money and gave away most of the money he made so he could "keep it real," I guess is the phrase he would have used if he'd followed message board/blog gossip, which there is no way in hell he would have. I can't talk for Sailor Jerry -- to do so would be and is fucking blasphemy -- but I bet he would goddamn hate Jay Reatard.
Conclusion: you bitchy princesses/Guardians Of Thee Troo Underground Kulture would, perhaps, be more comfortable posting about niggers.
