    I just want to say that in few years I've been here everyone seems to be pretty nice. I've been offered, gratis, pedals; I've given a pedal away, some other stuff, a Tele pickguard...

    And just recently someone offered to give me a guitar. For free.

    Where do you see that nowadays?

    This is the only internet forum I belong to.

    I just wanted to say that this is a pretty great place to hang out...

    I think the maturity level here is on the upper end, that probably has something to do with it.

    It's pretty nice here in comparison to other forums.

    Yea indeed, I'm on some others, which I don't frequent any more unless there is a reason, and they are full of it.
    Everyone is better than everyone and they are pretty rough if you ask something , everyone is a rock star in their own lunch time.

    This forum and Squier Talk, which is also full of great people are the only ones I spend time on nowadays.

    I agree that this is by and large a civilized group of folks. There are a few dust ups here and there but they (mostly) always resolve with finding middle ground. The worst I was a member of for a while was a Ford Mustang forum back a few years ago when I was going once again through a big V8 make noise stage. A fellow forum member actually accused me of probably sitting down when I pee. I think he really meant it as an insult but it actually made me laugh.

    I quit going to another forum that was rather snobby. I am like @brians in that I just go to the other forum if there is a reason. I hang out here though because the people are so great. The people here have paid it forward to me quite a few times and I’ve paid it forward to others. And most of the people here are of that mind set,

    I am fairly new in this forum. I like it. Thanks for taking time out to post about this. That in itself, to see it and praise it, its a great thing. Keep it up guys, all of you. The world is a better place when we share joy! And guitar stuff is cool too!!

    We gotta have each other’s backs. That’s the only way we can make it in the long run, partner.
