i agree....it is bass-ackwards. every other forum i've been at approaches it just the opposite. "General" is the catch-all for all things that are well...general, and not specific to raison d'artre of the particular site.
as long as i've been here, General Chat has always been a catch all for EVERYTHING including music, movies, politics, religion, sports, friendly and not so jousting, etc.
i really don't believe anyone...forum members, moderators, or admin gives a rat's a$$ about what's posted here as long as it's not spam or obvious trolling.
and trolling includes willy (and his other alias') AND glen trolling w post after post attacking everyone and crapping on one thread after another w his nonsense... all in some twisted quest of making a point.
glen, if your goal was to prove to everyone what jimmy and i had long figured out about you.....congrats, w a cpl of exceptions you've succeeded in getting across what a $hit you can be.
i have no doubt you COULD do better but your competiveness and ego won't let you walk away from a jihad you've deemed life and death, all important. you've started a holy war you'll never win...but you can't just let it be and walk away from it because you're too prideful.
back to you dane...i hope you stick around and i'd suggest you consider the source of any insults and slights tossed your way. we're musicians....we have (or should have) thick skins. and sometimes people just say things and it's easy to give those slights more weight than the person saying them intended.
