    I don't belong to any other on-line forums, so I dunno if this is universal on-line, or if it's a "guy thing", but I think it's interesting how folks are always so willing to give advice, directly or indirectly, even when the post isn't asking for it. Heck, most people don't take advice even when they DO ask you for it (how often does a "Stop Me From Buying This Guitar That I Don't Need And Will Have To Buy On Credit" thread end with the person NOT buying the guitar?).

    I'm trying to do this less in my daily life. I stopped myself TWICE last week!

    Whatever your thinking about buying go for it.

    Stop thinking; start buying.

    In my area of Missouri, some of the old-timers used to say that but it sounded like “Now what you orta do is...”

    I never make purchasing decisions based on unsolicited advice on on line forums. I’m perfectly capable of buying stuff I don’t need on my own.

    this place is the corner bar for me. I give and receive advice in the spirit it is given. No obligations, just people talking and sharing and thinking things through or having a go on a topic or riffing on something...

    we have serious moments when guys have issues and people here seem to go straight to it, honestly etc.

    Mansplainin', testosterone, and the ego driven need to give our opinion in order to "fix" things....

    Yep. Sounds 'bout right.

    So, lemme see if I got this right. You're offering advice, that none of us should offer advice?

    a lot of us are old enough to know that no one takes our advice. Even when people come into my office and ask for my advice, people I've known for years, I know they are gonna do what they are gonna do... they usually just either want verification or just to say everything out loud. So, you can kind of just say what you actually think (and that is kind of a good feeling, and it also is nice to put it out there and see what it is--> the advice)

    it is win win. Everyone gets their say, guys can debate it if they want and the OP can listen or not as they choose... it is kind of the whole point of discourse, right?

    Hey mexicanyella,

    My youngest son, his wife and three kids live in Troy. My sisters son, his wife and four kids live in Troy. You're right. That's exactly how they talk.
