It's been over a month. Only one post on the entire forum, negative content. It's pretty clear to me he just wanted to drop a bomb and run.

So, what is it Mr. Graves? Are you really interested in figuring out what went wrong? Lots of folks here are happy to help you (myself included), and even the ones that called you a troll. Come back and let us know.

Why would anyone want to come back to such a nasty thread?

There were plenty of helpful responses after he posted. He didn't bother to come back. Maybe he did and just read. It may have been just a "flaming" post, putting down BIAB, while the fault of losing this gig was clearly his own fault. If you are playing gigs to make money to support your income, you should plan for possible disasters.

What's ridiculous is that this thread even still exists. It should be removed as it proved unproductive from the get go. Now this thread is just causing nothing but arguments among people who normally get along just fine.

When I posted about this being a sociology project, I wasn’t trying to be nasty. It actually happened, and it happened here.

The O/P created the account, made complaints about everything except his own stupidity, made one post, and hasn't been back since, not even once.

In fact, from what I could establish, I don't even think he has an account anymore.

We all know that BiaB is not to blame, not even 1%

Maybe it was an 'Ivan' event.

Regardless, we can put this to bed now, I'm fairly certain of that.
