OT: Too many OT

I know this is hypocritical, but I was kinda turned off by more than 1/4 of the threads being "OT". I know it ain't a big deal, but I mean, come on, asking if someone likes Tool isn't off topic. I'd prefer to skip the OT's because they get even more OT and then I can't follow due to all of the inside jokes among more senior members.

 

Anyway, less OT (off-topic), more OT (on-topic). haha. I crack myself up.

 

Oh, also, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Oteil Burbridge, and Derico Watson at the Birchemere = AMAZING! Everyone there wouldn't stop talking about Bass Nature Camp, understandably so.

 

I think Dave Schools was working the booth, but I wasn't sure. Does anyone know where he lives?

well, were bound to have OT's anyways, i think once some new innovations in the bass world come about, or someone buys an 8,000.00 bass, we'll be right back on topic.

Missed the Birchemere, the boss said we were going to dinner. You know how it goes. Glad it was a great show.

Don't look back. You never know what might be gaining on you.

Yeah, since you mentioned one of my latest OT's, that was seriously derailed by certain people, I think I'm going to pass on them for a while. But i think a lot of people, like my self, come to this forum for more than just discussions on bass. But there is an easy way to fix the OTs. Don't respond to them and they will die a quick death...

I'm also betting that this OT goes seriously off OT as well.

I agree that asking about tool isn't off topic, though the discussion wandered further into politics and religion than I'd expected, and I felt bad for Tens who wanted to hear about the band.

 

And Zeronyne's racial experiences are off topic, but his personal account fits our community.

 

Scanning the first page of threads just now, the balance appears OK to me.

I don't think anyone minds that once in awhile, but when it gets up around 25 to 30%, it does seem like a lot about nothing much goin' on.

Try HCBF or Ebassist. We get worried if the on topics ever get higher than 60%. Then We have a fire drill to get things back to normal.
