  1. In regards to my other thread "John Turner read please", maybe the information in it would help other people besides me.....

    I agree, and some people need to relax...why does it matter that ThePaste posted that thread? Does it bother people? It doesn't bother me...

    i agree totally, but then again, maybe "amps" is too busy :rolleyes:

    some people seem to forget that we are here to share information. and then again, some people have made quite a name for themselves here over the past year or two complaining.

    Yeah, I went back to the original thread and was surprised to see that it was closed. I was genuinely interested in the device, but I guess Mr Grumpy Pants didn't like it, so it needed to go. I thought a forum was for PUBLIC consumption-- I must have been wrong.

    Big Brother is watching.....
     
  5. Right on.

    Maybe a little tolerance on all of our parts is called for. I thought that the information was useful, (I'm gonna read ANY post that specifically calls for JT), but I can see that since only two people were interacting, it might be perceived as a 'Private Message'... I think that since we are all Bass Playing Brethren, (Can I get an AMEN?!?!), we should at least invite Bruce and Oysterman to explain their POV before donning the flame throwers... Anybod else think so??

    I would agree with this statement IF they had a 20 post interaction and were the only two chatting. But, since the THIRD post was someone complaining about it even existing, I have a problem with the thread being closed. I went back to the thread when it had 4 posts (none of them obscene, or inflammitory), and it had been close because a member, and a mod decided how the topic should be discussed, and I think that is wrong.

    I cant figure why someone went to a thread called "Hey John Turner" and then complained when it didn't pertain to them....go figure.

    Which is exactly why I'd be interested in seeing Bruce and Oysterman having the opportunity to explain. I too found it baffling to be shut down so quickly... Now keep in mind that if you're the next one to reply bassmonkee, we may be in danger of a repeat exercise!!! :D

    i have a better idea.

    if thepaste has any more questions/whatevers about the switchblade, post a thread about it. actually, it doesn't even belong in amps - if anything it should be in effects anyway.

    let's not make the mod's job over here any harder than it is already. besides, publicly questioning a mod's decision is sort of a no-no, according to the posting guidelines.

    so let's all take it on over to the effects forum, where it belongs, eh? :D

    I will back off. I wasn't trying to start a flame war, and I know that I can't be inside someone's head to understand why they did something. I just hope this isn't the start of a pattern. So, peace out, basschums. It's all good.

    Well, on reflection, I've decided that there are people who were interested in the original thread, so I've re-opened it and moved it over to Effects. When I first saw it this morning, I must say I was also of the opinion that it should have been a Private Message, but left it. I really don't like being seen to be undermining a fellow moderator, but it looks like the majority have spoken.

    The matter is now closed as far as I'm concerned, as is this thread.
