Hey that's all well and good. But just to clarify, I have made 2 posts
on this topic, and yes, at least one of the 2 implies that Curve may
have said something that apparently they didn't. For that I do
apologize, and I thank you for the clarification. But I hardly consider
that I am "continually" making such statements.  (Bashing Bush
continually, yes. Curve? no.)

The article posted here by Anette the other day was worded in such a
way that it appeared to come directly from the band or it's management,
thus my misunderstanding of who exactly was making the "rip off"
