    Hi talk bass. I'm from Harmony-central Bass Forum. I someone posted a link to your site this morning about the kitten killing pic, which circulated around HCBF last year. Last year, a bunch of us modified the pic in Photoshop and made jokes about it. Today, when I saw the link to your site, it reminded me about that, and I thought I'd keep the joke up and made another parody pic, and posted it on HCBF. It was just a joke. I posted it, someone asked if they should post it here, I said okay, not thinking much about it, and then I left to go to class and eat dinner. 3 hours later I came back, and discovered that some people seemed to be very upset about it. It was just a joke, and I don't know any details about what happened here, but I don't want you to think that I have or HCBF has anything against you guys. I've never even been here before. I knew HCBF would find it amusing, so I made it for them.
    Sorry if that upset anyone.

    Hey Skippii, your picture is funny, if you posted it as a goof in off topic, I'm sure it would have been well received.

    The little idiot that trolled it was the issue.

  4. Hey speddling, could you PM me and tell me WTH went on? And who was responsible?

    What a bunch of toads....now I know why I haven't been to that board ANY before now. I personally liked the "stupider" comment, at that rate....the guy doesn't have much to spare. I agree the "moderator" photoshop work was a bit much.

    Well that sorta thing shouldn't really bother anyone. If their conversation is anything like that thread I don't think they have the right (or should I say I cant believe they have the balls) to say that talkbass is full of "losers" and dumb people. To each their own.

    Why are we starting to say anti-HCBF things now? I say we make peace between TB and HCBF... and then, using our combined might, we take out Tabcrawler! :bassist:

    Just a joke anyway, and I actually thought it was pretty funny!

    BTW welcome Skippii - stick around, you may like things here!

    Hmm.. I never knew there was a rivalry between TB an HCBF... Probably not much of one.. just a few people flamming.. oh well...
  11. I agree with thrash_jazz.

    I'm one of three moderators over on HCBF - and the guy who trolled here yesterday caught a fair amount of hell over on HC for doing it.

    TB and HCBF meet some of the same needs but differ in many others. There's plenty of room in the bass community for more than one bass forum.

    The part that ticked me off was the use of my avatar by Skippi in the picture. That's like a personal insult.

    Ah. I must admit I didn't notice that...

    Still, I highly doubt it was intended as a personal insult. I've met Skippii and he really isn't the type of person to do that sort of thing.

    Better than a T-40? That bass hasn't been built yet.

    I'm sorry about that. I couldn't think of anything to put there, and then I noticed your avatar...it just seemed to fit well. I didn't pick yours for any specific reason. I have no problem with you at all--it wasn't supposed to be personal at all...just a joke. I'm Sorry.

    I used that because they've sort of come to symbolize HCBF.
    And I don't own a double-neck bass.;)

    Apology accepted. However, I'd be less than honest if I said that I didn't find it offensive. Could you please change the source doc to remove my avatar?
  20. I guess I'm 'the troll'. I'm sorry guys, I dont know what to tell you, I had no clue that skippi used the guy's avatar in it. I was very sincere until people started chucking **** at me. When people apologize, you accept it and move on. Again, I'm sorry for the problems I've caused you guys, let's move on.

    I'm a troll?????????
