    from pretty much the opposite perspective of the tabcrawler post we were looking at, this one's from the FDP. they have some pretty, eh, strange notions of us - seem to think we love the ibanez soundgear, f'r instance, when i believe it's probably the most roundly-bashed bass here. oh well.

    i just think it's interesting to get two outside perceptions of our community that vary so wildly.

    It's always the same thing.

    Other forums are crappy, we guys are the best.
    I see this in all forums I know.
  3. Thats actually quite funny. Title of Thread over there:

    How come you guys are nicer than the guys over at talkbass?

    quotes that made me laugh:

    "Some of those guys are kind of MEAN"

    "When I say something "stoopid" at TB I can almost hear the Beavis and Butthead snears and snickers. People are polite and tactful at the FDP while still being direct, or even confrontational." <---- heeheeheeheehee thisth rulesth... :rolleyes:

    "Talkbass is cool, but is a little too dominated by know nothing kids and a couple know everything people." <---- but i DO know everything lol.

    "We're not only nicer, but we're better-looking too." <---- i think Gard should be offended by that haha

    "Why are their tag-lines longer than their posts?" <---at what point do people forget its TB they are supposed to be talking about... not TC....

    Andy Daventry and Gweimer backed up TB good on ya!

    I'm with Jazz Ad. Everyone thinks they are the best. And apparently, that THEY are FAR more laid back and fun to hang with. All of them?

    Have you noticed everyone else has an opinion of TalkBass, but other forums are only brought up here when they're talking about us?

    I like that.:D

    I think we are so popular, because when you type in "bass" at a search engine, talkbass always comes up, because it has covered everything!!

    Anyway, at least we are getting good reviews :D

    i like this post...

    "It seems like when a bratty little voice shows up here (fender forum), he's not around too long. I do like the TB Forum, it's just a little too "clique-ish" or something. "

    :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    would you like some mustard with your contradiction?

    This must have been when you were in your talkbass coma, where you (and me a like) refused to come here :D

    Its hard to believe that we are so big and popular...WOO im finally in something popular!! *dances round*
  18. I never refused to come here. I just had a life and nothing on TB interested me for about 2 months.

    But i came back with a vengeance and reclaimed a position in the Top 20. I was number 9... now i am number 17 or something hmm damn SPAMMING ohhh sshhh.
