Default Statement on the Music Garage Incident

As many of you are aware there was an incident here yesterday where an individual posted stolen pictures from the Smashing Pumpkins when they were rehearsing at the Music Garage. What this person did amounts to theft and band takes this very seriously as does Netphoria. I know everyone here is hungry for more information on the new album but this is not the way to go about it. Nobody here should condone or be supportive of the actions this individual took. It is unfortunate that the person choose Netphoria to leak these stolen works, Netphoria has always been a free and open forum without hard censorship but obviously in a case like this a line was crossed and I will not tolerate actions like this which is why numerous posts and threads were deleted last night. The band requested the stolen pictures be removed and I believe they are well within their right to do so. Anyone posting these pictures on the board, posting links to them or including them in your signature will be banned as a result. Despite this ugly event there may be some good to come out of it, some lines of communication have been opened and hopefully Netphoria & the Pumpkins will be able to offer something for the fans here, stay tuned....

- Andrew Pakula

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need of some strangers hand
In a desperate land

Thumbs up Appropriate...

Using stolen property to sabotage the band's plans is not something you'd expect of fans anyway... then again, I've been lurking here long enough to know the ratio of fans to strangely obsessive haters...

yes, but if you could see the deleted thread, you'd see no one was trying to sabotage plans; he didn't even post the pictures

will you guys stop calling it hacking? it's not "hackery" nor anywhere NEAR hard to understand how directories work. get with it.


this wasn't directed at you gossamer, at least not in a negative way, but at the two fool thieves who think that it's a sound defense of what happened. your post just happened to remind me of how stupid those people can be

I still can't believe all this is happening.

For what it's worth, I really liked the photos, and I'm still excited about the album.


EDIT: After thinking about this for a minute, would Billy actually try to support this place with some news or other bridge-building communication? After all of this, I'd assume he hated Netphoria. It'd be cool if he was objective enough to rationalize the good that exists here, though, as hidden as it is sometimes. Netphoria really does blow all other Pumpkins communities out of the water.

i mean, thats all this amounted to when you get down to it. billy and co. agree to scratch Andrews back and he scratches the eyes out of those who betray the supreme creative talent of BC.

Yeah, I was referring to the guys who immediately posted the pics outside of Netphoria... just can't understand why you would spend so much time on an SP message board only in order to try to sabotage a project that is obviously being closely guarded... extremely disrespectful and uncalled for... I just feel sorry for isthistheend... he shouldn't have swiped the pics, but he was definitely victimized.
