When I first started viewing Jemsite threads a few years back, I loved this site. Everyone was really cool, and the conversations that went on were awesome.
But as time has been passing this site has changed alot, and personally, I think it used to be better.
It seems now, alot of people have attitudes, or holier than thou mind sets, and it makes posting kind of unpleasant. I mean, this is the only guitar related site I'm apart of (I'm on quite a few) where people are constantly correcting each other and "guarding" parts of the forum. Heaven forbid some one ask a question that's been asked before, there's 20 guys (with in 8 minutes) who are flaming the guy saying "do a search", "duh, go back through the forum" or answering the question in a degrading matter. I've only noticed those types of reactions here.
The classified section is a little out of hand at times, but it seems to work well so I won't say anything. I will say that this is the only site where 40 people come out and post things like "If you're not going to buy the item, don't post in the classified section" and stuff of that nature.
I don't mean to sound like a prick, but these are things I have noticed that have changed over the years, and I don't care for them. I've noticed alot of guys that used to post alot on this site don't do so any more, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was partially due to the reasons I've listed.
I still like this site alot, and it's very useful for getting information on IBZ guitars or getting a players opinion on piece of gear, or review on a movie, show, cd etc etc. I think Glen has put together a great site, and I hope it could be more like a friendly gathering of people (like in a guitar shop) like it used to be.
Thanks for listening to the rant.
