Stop Filming Gigs you fools

This BBC article expertly espouses that patience with the modern way of attending a gig and filming it on your smartphone, has worn thin. 

Holding a phone aloft or sitting on your boyfriend's shoulders - both show a total lack of respect to those around you who have paid high prices to watch a live show. This attitude is far too common in modern day society: playing music on a bus, using a mobile in a quiet zone on a train, sending and receiving texts during a theatrical performance. It's the "me, me" selfish society we now live in.

Indeed, I despise these people who think nothing of imposing their presence upon the rest of us, and would advocate a sense of citizen justice. Haul the girl onto the floor, and when the boyfriend attempts to defend her, he is kicked to the deck by a mob...Both are then handed an A4 sheet of paper, upon which is written their transgressions.

Snatch and then over-arm throw the smart throw into the crowd if one is suddenly thrust into your line of sight. "You lost your phone because you're a selfish prick!" Any attempts to start a fight will be snuffed out by the mob kicking the smart phone transgressor to the floor. Repeat A4 sheet. Somebody ruining the quiet zone on a train, gather a crowd and then choke that person with a tie until they pass out.

Sending a text during a performance, your phone will be snapped in two in front of you. Harsh? Yes. But ask yourself this question...Would you fall foul of my system? If so, then you're an idiot who lacks self awareness and respect for others and you deserve a damned good kicking.
