    Yup. Even contrarian opinions can open up healthy discussions when exchanging ideas. The collective in this forum about music is chock full of creative people that bring ideas from completely different perspectives and worldwide perspectives. We all use pickups, yet there are an infinite number of combinations that can fullfill each player's desires in a different way and different genres on different guitars into different amps.

    Why shouldn't opinions be threatened? That's a lot different than saying people shouldn't be threatened for expressing a particular opinion. Ideas should be challenged, it leads to growth.

    I think @preactor means by "no threats on opinions", is no personal threats. Whereas you are talking about challenging opinions. Both of you are coming from the same perspective that I have. We can suggest counter opinions in a safe environment with a well moderated forum stopping personal attacks. The diligent work from the moderators keep the harmful arguing to a minimum.

    Glad you're here, too! The archives can be extremely helpful for those seeking answers.

    The TDPRI archives contain a treasure trove of info. Forumites that try for answers by starting one thread can easily shoot themselves in the foot in terms of relatively few responses. I've often read for hours of on a specific topic (example: AlNico pickup magnet types) by searching the archives.

    I too have benefitted from this forum. I was searching for something not directly related on the internet and found myself reading @Antigua Tele s analysis of the Donlis double cream humbuckers. Found it interesting and took a chance to buy a set. I havé bought about five sets now and impressed with them all. Including my tele set. Only really registreed on here to thank him but I do follow this forum regularly now and enjoy to read much of the content by everyone. Nice friendly place.

    True, as long as nobody mentions David Allen pickups.

    Oh oh, I didn't think that my thread was going to end up like this. I was just saying thank you to all experiences pickup people that help us tone seekers throughout the years.
