    Yes, but he cries himself to sleep at night. Or maybe he's giggling. Either way, it's kind of creepy.

    Does his late night whimpering make it hard for you to go to sleep? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Exactly my thought. Creepy.
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    Question whose kid is this

    HowD Funseekerz, Happy New Year etc ... and BIG TNX for being here for me
    I've been offline for months due to my probs with my chronic condition and, as always, YOUZALL are the best and help me keep going although it seems that over the long run, and, I hate to admit it, the doctorz may be accurate in predicting that I'll not likely play my EBMM basses ever again ... BUT, "What-the-heck do they know?, and, one thing is for sure ... "never count an EBMM player out of the game
    still, I carry on and faithfully remain a forumite and hang on to my determination, call it my "IRISH" and, as Screamin Jay Hawkins once said ... " I DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T WANT ME, I'M YOUR'Z", "Yeah"... AND FURTHERMORE, MY IMPOSSIBLE RECOVERY IS STILL DEDICATED to YOUZ'ALL HERE AT the EBMM HOMEFIREZ,

    and, on the subject at hand, my dear DAD always advised me to "THINK BEFORE I SAY THINGZ, and " ALWAYZ CLEAN AND PUT YOURTOOLZ BACK WHERE THEY BELONG WHE DONE WITH THEM, and NEVER HIT A GIRL"
    Thanx for your patience here with my rambling and I'm just checkin in with this longwinded reply tosay "HELLO", not trying to derail this thread and important subject of good manners, apologiez for this ramble if it'z considered bad mannerz

    Happy New Year!

    And take BP's advice. I used to write a lot of music on a keyboard workstation and I don't even play keyboards.

    Hi folks,


    I seem to have noticed that when listing their equipment in their sigs, people in the bass section do not mention non-EBMM basses they might own.

    If I'm right, is this a courtesy issue? I saw no rule about this.
    I've started to wonder if there are any cultural aspects here. See, in the forum of my own shop's site (in Norway) for example, people would discuss my stuff as well the competitors'. Like EBMM, I have no reason to fear any possible comparison. Badmouthing of _any_ brand would immediately be corrected by other forum users.

    Anyway, am I right in assuming this is about being courteous towards EBMM?

    best,
    bert

    It's a courtesy issue. There is no rule about what you can list in your signature but hey, it's the EBMM forum.
