I just wanted to clarify a few remarks I've made online regarding the people on the MMN.
First of all, not all of them are stalkers, or members of the Manilow Mafia. These honors only belong to a few. Unfortunately, it's those few who are making life miserable for everyone else on there. Standing up to them would be the solution, however whenever that happens, the blog or discussion ends up getting heated and then deleted by the Fan Club. While this keeps things "under wraps", it really isn't solving the heart of the problem.
However, I also want to point out that there are some wonderful people to be met in Manilowland, regardless of whether they are on the MMN or not. There are also other sites, such as the alt.fan message board on Google, as well as some wonderful blogs focused on Barry. And while getting a bunch of women together can get a little silly, those are the friendships I treasure and want to continue, without the MMN.
