    Hey, I just noticed they still have the "Random Media" sidebar around here. I am jealous.

    This is not the same forum. Or is it? And yes, it was said multiple times in that thread that I was being given a hard time because I was new. I needed a higher post count to break the rules, it seemed.

    I'm not going to argue with you about this. I found the behavior of the members there abhorrent and the mods were not only not helpful, but did not display appropriate behavior. Behavior that is against the rules of conduct that anyone on that site agreed to when they signed up.

    I'm not arguing with you, just telling you how things are (and always have been) on forums. I've been moderating them for over 20 years.

    Actually, with 2 pickups, 3-way switch, master volume and tone AND the vintage style Tele bridge, that one's much more to my taste.
    I'd take the unusual shape over the familiar feel of a Tele with all those strange specs of the Hybrid any day.

    Not that either of them is even remotely in the price range I'm willing to pay :confused:

    As have I. I've owned forums and websites. Been a moderator on several and Admin as well. The behavior of some of the mods on some of these sites is absolutely intolerable. They are hardly inclusive and cater to the ones that have been on the forums for a long time, or the ones that "donate" to keep the forum going. It's no secret and no surprise, either. Their behavior turns more people away than they realize.

    So far so good, no stabbings anyway. But the day is young and there's still time.

    Yet you still get worked up about it even on another forum altogether.
    Nothing is gained that way. Just move on and enjoy your six-stringed passion with people you click with :)

    Sorry. Yeah, I do. It's one of my character flaws.

    I will try to take your advice and do better. Thanks.
