There's been a few threads about flipping/selling gear and the line for what's ethical vs legal and the general vibe that I'm gleaning from those threads is that most folks don't look at talkbass as a community to build relationships, but rather just a place on the internet to talk about bass. I've been a part of several internet communities over my life and stepped away from talkbass for a bunch of years. When I stopped actively posting for a long period (probably about 8 yrs ago or so) this place was very much a community - people pooling together to help out one another in need, hooking each other up with solid deals and in general it felt like there were real friendships built around the platform (in general). I'm a big fan of community and everything that goes along with it and I'm curious what the consensus is about talkbass. In a community, people are less likely to try to have win/lose situations and more focused on win/win situations and the overall forest of the community so to speak - talkbass kinda seems like an every (wo)man for themselves kind of place lately when it comes to anything business-ish (and I'm a firm believer in not mixing business and pleasure - which is why I look at this as a community - bass for me is about pleasure, not business). So what does it mean to you? Community or just internet rat hole with a focus on bass?
