    You must understand that mixing cabs is wrong and you are a horrible person for even considering it.
  5. There is a best bass for metal but it can't be discussed or mentioned.
  6. Tort here is similar to that of the medical field, except many more lawyers are involved

    Mix your drinks. But never your cabs!

  10. Jaco only needed four.
  11. Use acronyms because it saves time and bassists are deeply concerned with time.

    One should never resurrect their own zombie thread, especially by replying to a post they have already replied to. Sheesh.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

  14. Always give your opinion about a product, especially if you've never owned or used the product in question.

    Check spelling and grammar of every post you read and post errors immediately.

    Revive an old old thread with a "bump" whenever you encounter one.

    Whenever starting a bass thread always use "The Official---" in your title if possible.

    Make sure to disagree with at least one post every time you log on to TB.

    If a thread is questionable in content, always post "In before the lock". It's important to be in before the lock.

    You can post "subbed" as a reply in any thread. Even if you have no idea what it means.

    Always garnish a thread reply by posting a singular "LOL".

    Do the same with "Carrots" because everybody like carrots.

    There can never be too many pictures of Business Cat with a quote from Nobody in it.

    Derail a thread wherever possible so that readers aren't forced to read page after page of
    hack shopworn advice and admonitions.

    Start at least one " P-bass vs. ----" thread every week.

    Popular thread subjects are " The Top Ten Best Songs", " The Best Bassist Ever", " Best Strings For My Bass" and " Can I Use A Tiny Practice Amp For Big Venue Gigs?".
    Always respond enthusiastically with numerous replies.

    New TB members always need a thorough hazing and initiation. TalkBass wants only the best, the brightest and the strongest. It is your duty to weed out those who can't cut the mustard with their first post. You''ll know you did good when every thread they start after that contains the opener:- " I know this is a stupid question but..."
