Just wanted to take a second to also say that our thoughts and condolences are with the people of Norway today.

The above is a selection of tweets from Norwegian musicians that have graced the pages (and stages) of BrooklynVegan in the past. Blabbermouth has a list of reactions from more in the metal community (from Norway and elsewhere), including the above-pictured message from Enslaved who said, "Our deepest condolences and thoughts go out to everybody touched by the fathomless tragedy that struck Norway yesterday. This is indeed a day for afterthought."

What happened yesterday in Norway was absolutely horrific! Please think twice before you consider submitting a negative or inconsiderate comment. RIP and condolences to all affected families and friends.

Im officially never going to look at this website again. This behavior is disgusting.

^ I concur. I have this site bookmarked on my computer, but I simply can't deal with the comments these days. I'm fairly certain this only exists in the electronic world. In the real world where people intereact, I have to believe the majority of people who comment in such curt, unintellectual and extremely mean ways ... I can only imagine they're only acting like that becasue they hide behind a computer screen. Regardless. I can't deal with even browsing. I'll find lists of shows happening somewhere else I suppose. That I will honestly miss. But I simply can't deal with the level of immature filth that seems to run all over these pages in 2011. It's really too, too bad. Sigh ...

The real tragedy is that 32 people die every year from tainted hummus

Yeah the brooklynvegan comments section is the only place in the world where cruelty exists. STFU.

Brooklynvegan, how about just sticking with the music news so you don't have to feed the trolls. thnx

The people who're unbearable are commenters like 12:22, self-important buffoons who think they have any standing to tell someone else how they should run their blog.

12:51, I agree kind of, but have you ever been at the 14th St. entrance to Union Square? The city is literally full of these types of people. You might even say that it is a hallmark of youth culture.
