    I just came back to Talkbass recently after something like a 2 or 3 year break. I was instantly turned off by the list of rules and do's/don'ts that have popped up since then; like you can't talk trash about extended range basses and stuff like that. I thought this place had turned into a bunch of nannies and almost didn't read on.

    Whoa, I just got through reading all about Tera Labs, the Accuswitch, Thunderguy threatening lawsuits, etc... the most entertaining time I've had on the web in over a year! Boy did I miss out on watching some serious poo-flinging!

    BTW, my amp and cab are both down so I'm going to be reading with interest about all the stuff I've been missing in the way of new gear since then.

    Love you all... glad to be back.

    It's the price of increasing size and membership.

  4. I need to re-read the rules. I did not know that you could not trash-talk extendo-range basses... I don't want to t-talk E-range basses, but if that is a rule I wonder how many others there are that I am in danger of breaking. That's me for ya... always worried 'bout them there rules! :)

    not.

    Two or three years ago, I was buying gas for around $1.25 a gallon. Life has a way of changing as time goes on.

    You know James, those pressure helmets look seriously like mullets unless you shave them regularly.
