The ironic part is that he calls me a character without realizing he is one as well. He spent all his time compiling all these topics and writing a wall full of text with the purpose of "banishing" me from another forum. He probably gets kick out of it.

As far as I can tell, I haven't broken any rules in this forum. I've been a member longer than he has. I also didn't break any rules in those forums he listed either.

I simply asked questions about my concerns with certain devices, such as tremolo bridges, their tuning stability. I never attacked anyone, or singled out anyone, if anything, people were attacking me and making fun of me in the TGP forum for the smell issues which are REAL. I do have allergies and certain chemical smells trigger them, yet people think is all jokes and giggles, that are all made up to "troll" them.

Whether you believe me or not, or if you think the smell issue is trolling, it doesn't make it any less real for me.

The reality is that people don't like hearing others complain because they don't want to feel guilt or sympathy for them. They realize on an instinctive level that empathy for people who complain will only drag them down into the mire with them.

so they have to find a way to simultaneously deny them their aid whilst still believing themselves to be good, friendly wholesome people. The only way to do this is to imagine the person as a villain and troll who's responsible for their own misery.

Otherwise the nice, inclusive, tolerant "normal" person would have to face up to the fact they aren't nice, inclusive or tolerant at all.

I'm closing this thread as it's now run its course across several forums.

What I would say is everyone here gets a fresh start from other forums, but that many folks here are members and moderators on other forums. Forums like SSO and TGP and Ultimate Guitar. Think of it as the way if you start fights or cause trouble in one bar, the security staff will inevitably talk to their counterparts in other bars.

With regards to the rules, "grandstanding" is and has always been something that is not tolerated here on Jemsite. A constant stream of negative threads asking for help and rebuking the advice that is offered is certainly verging on grandstanding. Either begin to accept the help in the spirit in which it is offered or seek it somewhere else.
