First I must say that it wasn't until recently I started "talkbassing" here in OT so I might have missed something really vital for what I'm about to say... I've gotten the impression that polical threads have been banned because of one person and not because of "the community", but I might be wrong... To the point... I've visited an forum for guitarists and they were debating this "Iraq issue" (as some are doing here). There is one difference though... The thread was six pages long when I visited it the last time and that was six pages of namecalling and bad language (f**k every other word)... I might have missed something but the discussion that's going on here seems very civilized. Conclusion: I am glad that I am a bassplayer. "Rather a bad bassplayer then a loudmouth guitarist!"
