    I guess some 15 year old is pissed with TB.... -- A JOKE -- A JOKE (Seattle)

    If you are a real bassplayer, is a waste of time. If you are a wannabee playing the
    role while you hide behind the Internet, it's perfect for you.

    I've been thrown off there 5 times for posting that, given a sound instrument, it's the player
    not the instrument. DUH.

    The stinking troll who owns the site just wants to make money selling advertising and can't play at
    all. So he doesn't care if you can. He just wants numbers, and won't make you identify yourself so
    that others can check and see if you are what you say you are.

    He can't play the bass because he's too busy hunting for real bass players to throw off his forums
    to practice.

  2. I admin a military and law enforcement forum. People have gone so far as to post stuff to Youtube to whine about how they aren't the special little snowflake that doesn't need to comply with the rules that they believe themselves to be.

    Bruce isn't a very good speller, but he did alright in that.
    I can't agree with him though, or that would make me a poser.
  4. I like jokes.

    I typed "Bruce Burhans" into Google and it suggested adding "Bellingham", which I know is near Seattle. And this was the first result: The Bruce Burhans Game | My Greenpeace Buddies
    If one poster is to be believed, the fellow mentioned in the link plays upright bass. Disclaimer: I have absolutely no idea if this is the same person, just found the coincidences interesting.

  8. If he had re-registered on my forum, I'd have banned his IP. He's lucky TB is more lenient.

    The Bruce I found on FB seems to be involved with a band, but his spelling isn't as good as that in the OP.

    Ok, let me try it: given a sound instrument, it's the player not the instrument.

    I'm a mod on another forum and we ban IP address, email address and username (mainly for spammers but we have had a few $#1t stirring members who have been thrown off).
  12. Maybe his mom proofread it for him before he posted it?

    Having been banned myself once (I earned it) I can tell you that this is a tightly-run ship. Ha ing visited other sites it is my opinion that is a good thing.

    Your freedom of speech rights protects you from government intervention in expression. Private entities, such as TalkBass, can filter you however they wish.

    Again, having visited other sites and seen what they get away with over there, I'll take this over that any day.

    You think we get unfriendly here? Not hardly.
