Maybe it's just me, but I don't see it anywhere!

Thanks Dudes!

It only appears to you when you're logged in, do you see it now?

FYI, that's on purpose.

Why? Not that you asked but...

1. I don't want it tracked by the search engines.
2. I don't want the RIAA/lawyers breathing down our neck
3. I don't want the site to become a giant tab machine
4. The tabs really are for educational purposes, just like a bunch of guitarists sitting around teaching each other songs. In order to get to them, you have to be part of this sharing, learning and teaching community of guitarists.

Don't want to worry you Nick, and you know more about computers than me, but if you check "Who's Online" at any given moment there are usually several "bots" registered as members....quite frequently one of them will be "reading topic in Easy Song Database."

I know I mentioned this once before, a long time ago - would it help if people posting tabs posted a disclaimer, something along the lines of the one David uses in his lessons? Perhaps you could do a "standard" disclaimer we could cut-and-paste into future tabs, or edit into existing ones?

:D :D :D

That sounds like a good idea Vic. Better safe than sorry.

Maybe access should only be granted after a member reaches a certain post count? I don't think the "bots" ever post. Just an idea.

But the Easy Songs forum is not indexed by the search engines, isn't? They aren't allowed to read these pages. I don't know how Nick or Paul configured the system but usually you can forbid the access to directories or zones to robots in the websites.

Could've classified both types as parasitic scavengers, then.....

Bot, Bot, uninvited guest
Nick considers you a pest
A voyeur peeking
Key words seeking
Into our Forum you crawl
Lurking about ye shall
On our posts feast
Morph a winged beast
And ungratefully fly
With no 'Hello' or 'Goodbye'
Contributing naught
Oh dreadful Bot.

Sorry about that. Off topic again.
But your thoughts prompted the poem - especially the maggot/parasitic scavenger thing - it conjured visuals.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Hey Ken, sounds like you're on your way to a great dark & heavy angst tune. Drop the tuning down about 1 1/2 steps, palm mute some power chords and SCREAM IT BROTHER!
