I enjoy the drama sometimes like a reality show I wouldn't admit to liking.
That seems to be inexperience...the strongest people I know are the kindest people I know. People who have been discounted, just might be the most respectful people around...because they know the other side.
Thats not half as bad as this.
I know how you feel. ST definitely has a different vibe to it than it used to, but not in a bad way. I don't post as much as I used to anymore. However, this is STILL the most civil and friendly forum I've ever been on. And, I love seeing new folks join all the time. There are just a ton of people who left here that I wish would come back sometime; their comments were always filled with wisdom, comedic value, or just kind words. Malikon, Goodkat, Lua, etc.
And then there was Louis cyfer.
Anyway, I hope you stick around a little while longer, my dude. Watching your KOTB videos from back then were hugely inspirational to me, as I was just getting started.
Looks like I joined Strat talk almost 3.5 yrs ago. I wouldn't have guessed it's been that long. The vibe is similar as then but it is different as I guess we could only expect as members cycle in and out as availability and interest changes.
I don't think I've blocked anyone and wonder what it would take for me to do that. The train wreck is sometimes fun to watch and it seems like the jerks and trolls disappear over time as a result of their inability to have a decent relationship (likely never have one).
So, you all at Strat Talkers are OK with me. The tight reign on topics and behavior keeps things pretty well in-line. The only other forum I'm on is the Tele forum. That's a pretty cordial group, with some members overlap from here, but that forum isn't quite a loose (fun) as this forum. Between the two I can get more info than I need to know, and usually answers on questions I have, and get plenty of entertainment along the way.
Last, as has been said before, @TSims1 you're a great asset, great player and musician. Rock on.
Similar to what @Mr. Lumbergh has described, I came here and learned the ropes from guys like him (And, to large extent, him personally. Thank you for that!) and find myself in more and more threads now when I feel I can help someone out.
Largely by recommending my favorite set of pickups. But I'm getting there.
I want to get there, however, and this is a certain magic this place has. You want it to work. You want to help the dumb youngsters like yourself. At least I do.
As for what needs to happen so I can block somebody? He insults me personally or he advocates child murder (Edit: that's not abortion they were talking about, mind you, it was shooting young criminal offenders in the back while they're running). Both of these things have happened. The murder thing more often than the insult thing, which has happened only twice.
But I still came back and have a good time, and that's saying something.
With certain people out of the picture, it still works for me. Albeit with a bad taste in my mouth when I think about it.
Happy to help, and to know you appreciated it.
Oh, I still do - and the folks who have to listen to me noodle a tad better because of it do as well
Well, for one thing, folks like @Mr. Lumbergh and @roger@pennyflic and several others are largely responsible for me forcefully spraying copious amounts of potable liquids onto my computer screens from my mouth both at home and at work (at some of the most inappropriate and inconvenient times, I might add), and even if I have nothing to say guitar-wise, I find myself drawn here for my daily cup of humor or insolence. This place is really a gas (in more ways than one, I might add) and I would probably continue to make it a daily stop even if I sold all my guitars, which would never happen, BTW.
As with anything....use what is useful to you, discard the rest.
Another thing that may have changed this a little- when @Rogue Bohemian was here more frequently, I think he enforced his hippy-redneck code of peace, love and don't nobody **** with nobody and that spirit prevailed.
He was one of the first people I sent to the cornfield. His tirade against Dave Evans (the Edge) and his supposed lack of talent was juvenile at best. I've worked with him (on Goldeneye) and he was hard working, pleasant, and made sounds that were unique and original. Would he fit in a Grateful Dead tribute band? No. Although I would find it interesting if he did.
I really have no time for arguments on the interweb and in that respect don't really care if i get my point across or not so I suppose when I run into a thread that is getting a bit snarky I just move on and read something else
I must say it's always great to see you here Tony and I stick around as long as there is a spirit of good will around here and do my best to perpetuate it.
Only one thing to do then - uphold his code in his absence!
I don't know him, but FOR RB!
Oh, he had some strong opinions, for sure.
I'll note, that's some excellent use of the ignore feature. I like both of you and am glad I never had to see y'all going at it.
This thread is only 6 pages long for me.
158 for me...
im pretty sure there are a few people that have me on ignore.
but thats ok.
not everyone will enjoy all that is carver
