I know it's been a while now, but I wanted to let you know that what you said to me on my talk page was mean and disrespectful. You don't know how hard I work deciphering lyrics that have never been posted online before. I'm just trying to make a difference in the world of 70's progressive rock and all related bands by having their lyrics posted online forever, and you have made me feel very unwelcome on here by saying that I "waste people's time" and by saying that my ways are "nitpicky" and "weird-ass". This isn't about the whole "Cos" thing, I don't even care about that anymore, but if you're going to respect people's hard work on LyricsWikia, you shouldn't treat them poorly. I don't expect you to respond, but if you're going to, then please be more respectful next time. — TylerJames1994 (talk) 15:03, June 30, 2017 (UTC)

Hi Tyler, I agree that the job of editing lyrics or adding new ones on this site is a thankless job. I appreciate anyone's efforts to add or improve song lyrics from the '70's, as that's the era I also concentrate on. I'll admit I was too harsh in my comments to you, and for that I apologize. But you also have to give respect to get respect, and you changed other's hard work that was already approved by the administrators, without any consultation or suggestions offered on the song pages prior to making changes. Even so, I realized later that you're a fairly new contributor, and for that reason, I should have just given you constructive criticism, rather than resorting to name-calling. I'm sorry it bothered you. I hope you continue to contribute to the lyrics from my favourite era. --Southern Rocker (talk) 23:29, June 30, 2017 (UTC)
