    Same forum I guess, where I too was asked to join in. I beleived in it, did a whole lot of graphic art for them, main site banner, some for their Facebook page, even for some eventual T-shirts. What I got as a thank you, was that they wanted me to sign papers that took away my author's rights. Yeah of course, no problem ...

    Didn't take long to see where that was going. I erased everything I had done and got the hell out of there. Too bad, could have been fun.

    Here's the main image that represented the site well.

    That's actually a really cool graphic Dr.B!

    And to prove the point, I now know the site just by looking at it. That's the site that transformed the noise to signal ratio here at ESG. As a result I love that place - but never go there. :)

    that entire company's success is purely based off of the cult of personality spawned from Rob Chapmans YouTube success. I'm sure there are people that just buy his guitars because they like them, but I have no doubt that a lot of the sales come from his fans

    I thought it went "Keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer". Either way, the point still stands

    Any forum run by Staff who don't listen to the readership is destined to remain small, and most likely irrelevant.

    Apparently, though he still lacks the guts to own it.

    Maybe Tommy Tourbus was right.

    I have a rule. I pull the plug when I start hating people I actually like. It usually takes 1.3 seconds if things turn political. Unfortunately, everything is political today...plus people are morons.
