This is the first time you've mentioned In Ear Monitors in this thread. Up to now it's been about hearing aids. Sure, musicians need to hear. And musicians are probably prime targets after years of "goes to 11." But they aren't really musical gear. Count them and you start having ads for cargo vans, leather pants, and adult diapers. Nothing wrong or right about it. It's just not what they want in their classifieds.
Regarding the comments, hard to say since I don't know exactly what was said. And I don't know the exact wording of your ad. When I get a telemarketer at home, I say things I wouldn't normally say in regular conversation. I've written the person off so I'll have some fun with them. They're being a pest so they get what they get. Maybe the person saw your first post as spam, since it wasn't music gear, and let you have it. Not really an excuse, but it also may not represent how they generally treat members in day-to-day posts.
Lol, I don't have any stock in TGP, just an aging fart that has spent too many years on many forums.
I see your point.. And I get it I really do and am up for a good initiation.. But the issue is the level that it went so quick. It was harsh and uncalled for.
As far as hearing aids go, I have fit lots of musicians and it has changed their life for the better. Not to mention that there are hearing aids specifically made for musicians. Awareness and availability in the music community is called for.
It makes me appreciate this forum for being open minded and the fact we can agree to disagree without major issues is wonderful.
