an acquired taste some may never acquire

...if it is to survive. If you are a non-contributing participant in this forum and therefore don't frequent/post in Moe's, see the link below for further details.

We bass players pride our selves as being those unsung heroes who lock in with the drummer to hold the wheels on the cart.

In that spirit, some of you who have never contributed a dime in support of this forum should step up if you value what this place has to offer.

Otherwise it may go away fairly soon.

A relative few of us have been helping to pay the bills here over the years and would appreciate if those who have been riding for free would give us some help carrying the load.

Just as in a band, if too few people are doing their part, the music stops.

Just caught the news here. I don't understand how buying via links works - but we have an Amazon Prime account - usually just buy books, CDs etc - does this mean that (had I been noticing this stuff) I could have somehow been helping the FDP by buying via this site? Is it "anything Amazon", or just music gear stuff?

I think it was "anything" but that's a moot point, now, as they have unilaterally terminated the relationship without prior warning.

I’d like to add that it was well done that this catastrophe was averted, but we need to continue to support Chris and Rob in this effort to keep the FDP open.

A good portion of my friends I initially meet here. It would be a bitter loss to see the FDP shut down.

All those links above do nothing? Only Amazon counted?

The other companies pay to advertise here. Amazon's participation was an affiliate program where click-throughs resulting in purchases benefited the FDP.

It's still good to use the links above. Sweetwater tracks for sure. I'd guess the others do too.

I plan on paying again near the end of this month. Not that I care that much about Moe's but I don't like feeling like a freeloader any longer.
