I read your article on the rave culture and ecstasy. Though some of your 
findings fit the cliche, many of the things you reported on were isolated 
or skewed from what I have seen from most parties I have been to.

Granted, many kids do go to parties just for drugs. There are still quite a 
few of us who go for the music, though. I remember what techno and trance 
was like in 1995-1996, and I wish it could still be that way. 
Unfortunately, the media have overhyped and undermined the culture as a whole.
