I appreciate that a couple people actually thought about the subject and replied to what I brought up in an intelligent manner. Most people, including the moderator just had a knee-jerk reaction and shut it down. Maybe you thought I was talking about YOU, which isn't the case. I don't know you. I stated that I had no problem with anyone's sex or sexuality; they just had to impress me musically. Most people just saw the word "gay" and got uncomfortable. So just in case this gets closed again by the time I get a chance to log onto the site, hopefully that clears it up a bit. I thought the Off Topic area was someplace you could actually bring up an idea related to bass playing and have a discussion about it. Apparently that isn't the case, and I should post something like "What is best bass in world for noob to buy". Nobody minds those.
