I didn't apologize to you and you are not the forum's spokeperson, dubtrub is. But you did good by apologizing as your act was immature. And stick to the truth, you misspoke. Enuf said.
For what it's worth, in my time here, I recognize Panther as a regular contributor. I've seen his posts and "know" of him as a regular contributing member....if nothing else, I know that avatar when I skim through threads.
I can't say the same for you. Besides you calling out a consistent member, I can't recall anything from you. So there's that. So maybe you leave it alone.
As for the rest, I still visit this forum pretty frequently even though I have little to offer. I'm no Mosrite specialist. I don't even have a Mosrite. I wish I did, but I don't. I'm still a fan though. I have a Hallmark 60 Custom, so I'm sort of in the family and that's good enough for me. In fact, compared to the actual Mosrites I've handled in person, I prefer the Hallmark.
The bigger issues are that forums in general are a dying format across the board and Mosrites are a niche market that relatively few guitarists know about and which even fewer participate. Up and coming youngsters don't know what Mosrites are, don't know anyone new that plays them, and couldn't afford one anyway. I mean honestly, who are the real fans of Mosrites? Surf and country old timers and a Ramones-centric sliver of punk rockers. That's not enough to sustain a forum or a brand.
