This forum is fun
« on: May 14, 2019, 08:33:45 PM »
Just a quick note to say how much I look forward to checking in here and seeing what people are saying.  Let's face it, old electronic music devices aren't life or death, but most of what makes our lives enjoyable isn't either.  It's fun to share recent finds, or repair frustrations, or a bit of car talk.  The posts are helpful and interesting and polite.  Just by way of example, where else could I post a notice about finding somebody's old, broken-down, low-end console sitting out for the trash man and have people say "attaboy" and give some pointers.  It reflects well on all participants.

This is, by far, the most cordial, respectful and helpful group I've seen.  Really amazing!

I don't get on here as much as I should but I have to agree with you guys.  You almost never read a snide remark and I don't think I've ever read any political posts on here which I think is a good thing.

Yeah... I have no idea what other contributors' politics are, and I don't much care.  Long ago I decided that if I only had friends who agreed with my political views, I'd be pretty lonely.  And even when we have differences in views on electronic repairs and which finish to use, we're polite and respectful.  It certainly makes for more interesting and useful exchanges and we should all be proud of that.  We don't even get into slugfests over Ford vs GM vs Chrysler....

The reason I always type out my whole name is that it makes me responsible for what I'm posting, and less likely to say something really stupid, like some snarky political comment or a rude disagreement over which brand of capacitor to use.

Amen! A great place to hang out! 
Other sites I've experienced that are pretty cordial are: www.packardinfo.com  and www.automaticwasher.org  ... lots of helpful people and much sharing of useful information.
Happy Motoring! from Roger in NY

This is the only forum I belong too, and it will probably remain that way.  I'm happy here.  :) :)

This is not the only forum I'm a member of.  Being a member of other forums helps me realize how much I appreciate this one and the people who are members here.   :) :)
