"Triggered" is certainly overused and abused these days, either jokingly or not. Having a past of addiction, abuse, self-harm, eating disorders, PTDD or other forms of mental illness or trauma can lead to certain situations, words, memories, etc. being "triggering" of certain symptoms of a particular mental illness.

However "boo hoo my favourite band doesn't exist anymore" wouldn't be triggering unless they were your only reason to be alive. People get sexually abused and see their abuser on their way to work. That's triggering. People come back from war with PTSD and hear a firework go off. That's triggering. An old drummer retired after 40 years? Cry me a river...Styx out of the lamplight.

PTSD is a marxist lie spouted by pink-haired college lesbians. man up! be proud you got your legs blown off in a pointless war. don't cry about it

Oh how I wish I was kidding, but there is a Wounded Warrior commercial where one of the wounded "warriors" says, "I lost a leg defending freedom and I would do it again". What kind of brainwashing leads to that level of idiocy?

He doesn't have PTSD, he has OCD and wants symmetry
Are you down with OCD? Yeah, I need a knee!

I'd be more depressed seeing them up on stage sounding like shit
As to Ged's voice on their last tour, there must have been a lot of depressed folks in the crowd...

I'm okay with them being retired. Their last album being Clockwork Angels and their last tour being R40 is an epic way to end an epic career. I don't want to see them on stage when they're 70 years old, and I certainly do not want them to tour with some sort of changed line up. Most bands don't stay true to their word, comeback and it's never the same. Rush are not most bands!

The same kind of brainwashing that causes a dim-witted missionary to willfully trespass on an off-limits island, knowing full well that the inhabitants are hostile to all outsiders.  Knowing that the natives will kill you, you go anyway, cause you just have to bring Jesus to them.....

He tried to go a day earlier and was shot at and still went back the next day. He was clearly mentally deficient. Too bad he wasn't capable of using the brain his god gave him.

I agree with everything you said, except that, imo, they should have wrapped up at least 5 years earlier...  Ged's voice on R40 was atrocious....
