    No - don't do it - they're all just a waste of time and just clutter up the 'new posts' listings!!

    And they never have the option you want or would have voted for anyway!! ;)

    Yes, Bruce, we know.

    Check the "Yes! Post a poll." square in the New Thread dialogue and select the number of options you want in it just below. When you press the submit button for the new thread, a new dialogue will show up where you can customize the poll.

    O.K.

    I can just as easily ask the question: How many of you guys have damaged your hearing ability by playing music?

    I, personally, have developed a ringing in my ears that is enough to run me nuts. This in spite of the fact that most of my music has been comparatively low volume.

    Pardon..Eh!!

    Sorry - just wanted to be the first to get that in! ;)

    I never noticed any hearing damage while I was playing in pop-/rock groups in my youth - even with thousand of watts of pa!!

    But now playing Latin Jazz, in my forties, I find that the volume does have an effect - I tend to stand on the right of the drums and my left ear is really hurt by the cymbals - loud drummers!! It has started to give me a ringing in the ears when it's quiet, but nothing unbearable.

    We talked about it in the group as most of us are "getting on a bit" and agreed that we ought to play quieter - but some insisted on wearing earplugs - the special ones that just attenuate certain frequencies but still alow you to hear.

    I think that when you are younger you can take more punishment; but I was told by a sports physio that after 35 we start to decline physically and don't replace anything. :(
