Greg on BR websites: "I make it a principle not to look at any of the web pages that are set up for the purpose that I want the people involved in them and more importantly the users of those pages (the fans) not to feel like they are being patrolled and controlled by the authority who the page is supposed to be subjectively about. It is in the interest of complete freedom and unhindered fan-involvement that I stay clear of them. However, I don't mind answering questions to be posted on them, nor do I mind sharing information about the band". In spite of these words, Greg told me personally that he had read The Answer (and that there things in it which he himself didn't know). Jay: "It's good to have something like the WWW where the biggest thing on it is Pornography". Bobby only heard about The BR Page in May 1996 and he didn't even have a computer back then. Brian bought one on early 1997. Greg is always on-line even from Hotel rooms while on tour. Brian: "The internet is really good for punk rock. It kind of culls out the Beavis and Butt-heads because they don't really know how to operate a computer well enough to get in there and if they accidentally do, people get rid of them". Brian: "On the Bad Religion Web sites, you can find incredibly cool stuff I never even knew was there. I learned about my own band from the Internet!". At a show in October 2000, Greg spoke about the internet and how it is a great way to locate unrealeased material, and said that the next song (referring to The Fast Life) is very hard to find (not really true, but that's what he said). He also commented that he hoped that someone with a tape recorder at the show would post the entire show on the www.
