    ya'll know how we like to show pics of our new basses and other gear.

    i was doing the same over at bass101.com and got serious FLAK for "showing off".

    which, of course, some of it is.

    but i also like to show pics of basses that many wouldn't normally see. i EVEN apologized and promised to tailor my posts more appropriately to that forum.

    sigh, only to continue to read complaints about my pics and posting methods!

    so, i bid a public farewell to that forum.

    i'm sure i won't be missed.

    i'm glad talkbass doesn't feel that way. neither does the dudepit or basslinks.nl.

    the 3 best bass groups around in my opinion.

    just venting!

    spalts magmas, spalt vvipers, sadowsky, zon, brubaker, various lightwaves, TBC's...

    even some prototypes that haven't even hit the market yet.

    oh well, their loss.

  9. It's funny when you consider that the only thing in our Bass forum are pictures of everyone's basses. Even those people that just got a new Washburn or some other modestly-priced bass enjoy posting pics of their axes.

    We may be elitists, but we're equal-oppurtunity elitists.

    exactly.

    i think the issue is, Washburn, etc. is all most of them own over there.

    nothing wrong with Washburn. just that they can't stand non-Washburn elitism.

    :p

    And we all know it! :D (pat thyselves on back)

    I read some of those posts, Fhodshon. It's nothing but jealousy.

    Good ridance! ;)

    it looked to me like that "Govithoy" person was your major antagonist on that forum. that's too bad. maybe we should all be "issued" a standard bass and not be allowed to add to it or make any modifications... or maybe there should be limits and spending caps to how much time and money we can dump into our bass playing...especially if it's only a hobby... :D

    kinda like being in a car enthusiast forum and chastising someone when they show pics of their fun and fancy modifications and custom work.

    no, the "flamming" wasn't that bad...

    i've gotten much worse on alt.guitar.bass!!!!!!!!

    BUT, when someone is trying to share new info and gets accused of using the forum as his own personal wank-place?

    please.
