Is it against some sort of hardcore code for kids to post their opinions or thoughts in a Facebook group? I’ve always thought that a forum for open discussion was a pretty good use of the Internet. If you don’t wanna read it, don’t look at it. I don’t have a Facebook, but I do spend more nights at shows than I don’t and hardcore is alive and well.
