I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

it was made for a reason.

we didn't do it so we could use it ourselves.

a little high price, but see below? maybe 430... but you could probably get a smaller amp...

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

the humanity's sig is the best beginner equipment... ya i know you made it for a reason but when you tell someone "see the FAQ" it makes them feel that there asking a retarted question/they arent wanted in this thread.... ya and i know it probably took forever to make and i know that it is pretty annoying having the same threads over and over again

It took a long time to organise and a long time to write it up. It's intended to be used in order to cut down on these threads. It's not our fault that people can't be bothered to do some of their own research. Why should we answer a question that is fully explained, and then some, in the FAQ? If they have a particular question after reading it, then fine, no problems. It's a learning tool that just isn't used, and it's kind of a slap in the face, really.

Yes, it is. I once started a fund that stuck 5 dollars away towards an Urge II every time someone asked this question. I was half way there at three months.

The FAQ is a great resource that even many of the regulars use at times. If you don't have the time or make the effort to read it, then you must live with the fact that many of the regulars may not make the time or effort to answer the question. The rules thread, the FAQ and most of the stickied threads are there for a reason.
