    yep. none of the builders beat me up. it was the rest of the forum.
    i still cant figure out how they all got mad about my question.
    hell if im paying $600 for a custom knife said to be designed for
    outdoor use, yet NOBODY had tested one because they paid big money
    for them and didnt want to take a chance on ruining them, then
    how the hell does anybody know how they hold up under use?
    they were beautiful and works of serious labor and experience to be
    sure. a nice display piece in any man cave. that i stated too
    in my post. i got the knives i use now and couldnt be happier.

    What ever happen to free speech. It is the things you don’t want to hear that make it hard

    Abby is a fat chick, but I'd never say that.

    It's alive and well, but if you want to talk about speech that makes it hard, well, that's probably better left for the afterhours.

    I dumped TGP because I got sick of seeing a music forum littered with gun threads and wanker attitude. I like this Marshall forum because everyone seems down to earth & the pro's here seem more than happy to share hard earned knowledge with all that have a passion for making music. Much appreciated by the way.

    I banned myself from Spacebook. It was a wonderful feeling. Hitting the Delete Account button was like walking out of the loony bin and slamming the door behind me.

    Gearslutz can be a tiresome experience too. Try posting an opinion about not being able to tell the sound of a vintage Neve preamp from the new reissues. You'll get your nuggets lopped off. Of course the old ones are better! They cost twice as much and smell mustier.

    I'm happy just hanging here and in The Tone Rooms. Plenty of good gear talk and good conversation without all the menstrual cramps.

    Seems to me there have been a butt-load of gun threads around here too. That topic has become a broken record of cliches. Much like any thread climate related. Maybe that's one of the reasons forums are declining in popularity. It's like watching reruns on TV.

    For some reason when I lurk TGP I don't read much in The Pub. I like their Soundhound page much more than our Cellar.

    The TGP is filled with thin skinned hyper sensitive people and most of those become moderators. I don't miss that site at all. This is a great site and I hardly ever see anyone being a jerk. Glad to be here have learned a whole lot about the Marshall amps from very knowledgeable members.

    I got banned from the Fender Forum about 10 years for alerting people to how shitty MF packages their tubes. 3 boxes in a row of shattered glass. Apparently MF is / was a sponsor so they booted me. No warning, no deletion of the post, just booted. Their loss, not mine. I spent about an 8-to-1 ratio helping others vs. soliciting help.

    So. Fuck the guy that runs that forum.

    Free speech is never free, there is always a price to be paid

    That’s one of my main reasons for going to gear forums , so I can learn about and make educated purchases. If a forum is poisoned by advertisers then t becomes a paid advertisement not a bunch of unbiased opinions. That’s what I hated about Guitar Player magazine. Every piece of gear they review is “incredible”

    True on all counts.

    Funny enough, about a year ago I went back and browsed that forum for the first time in years. It's a wasteland compared to when I was on it. Shortly after I got booted, Fender themselves created a forum on their own web site and I think it took a big bite out of that dickhead's forum. Neener neener.
