    in light of whats happened in that part of the world, who really cares about guitars, i think theres bigger things to worry about...not trying to be an ass i just can't see a thread based on speculation and paranoia being of much use.

    Yes. Agreed. The last thing being discussed regarding Japan is guitars, and how it may inconvenience us.
    Not to hijack the thread here, and I don't mean to sound like I'm on a soapbox or anything......I know that's not what you meant starting this thread. I'm just real bitter. I was just on CNN, and stumbled on the comments to the story, over various pages, and what I find the most shocking about this disaster is just how fucking screwed western society is toward those in peril.
    Comments like:
    Is this still news? Move On.

    F'n Japs? Is this payback for WWII? (Obviously regarding the nuclear crisis)

    The only thing smellier than a living Asian is a dead rotting Asian ! Don't trust them. They're all snakes.

    (re: lack of food and provisions) Aren't these people used to eating Ramen? Big Deal!

    Finally getting what they deserve!

    This won't affect the States...Most "Japanese" products are made in China anyway!

    My Hummer wouldn't get washed away like those little riceburners, and I'm being condemned for my choice of vehicle? LMAO!!!

    Were helping them? Guess my taxes just went up! Thanks Obama!


    These were just a few jems among many. I know there's a lot of trolls, though I don't understand the concept, but Jesus! That just made me sick.
    Sure there were well wishers out there, but many were stomped on.

    It's one thing to bash each other on relatively inane topics, but to be so self centered and arrogant........
    My coworker is Japanese, and got word Saturday that he has most likely lost Family. It just took me a bit off guard seeing that stuff.
    As you were linkers....and again, sorry...I just wasn't expecting that at all.

    A lot of it is simple stupidity and reaching for the keyboard before thinking...the rest is just people being assholes.

    Yeah.... I know. Thanks guys. It's just kinda shocking sometimes, ya know?
    I just have a hard time envisioning clicking the send button after typing that garbage, and actually feeling any sense of satisfaction doing so.
    It's the same on CBC here... just obnoxious hateful shit from people who've most likely never suffered more adversity than their cell service being less than adequate, or their latte order taking too long! The horror! Lol.

    ehhhh.....Probably just get my online news off the links! Lot less chromosome deprived on here!

    It is seriously best to avoid the comments section of ANY news website. Seriously. If you have the option to turn them off, do it. I know it's tempting sometimes--like driving by the scene of an accident--and you just want to look. Fight it. You'll become so cynical about things if you get even a small dose of those kinds of ignorant and shameless comments.

    And, yeah, I agree that guitars are the last thing we need to be worried about at this point. The Japanese are a culture of people with a lot of pride in their efficiency and ability to work through problems. From reports I've heard from people there, that's evident in the way the general population is handling the crisis. I hope for the best for people more seriously affected by the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns.

    AT.....You're a class guy all the way!
    BTW... I rarely read comments for the very reasons you mentioned. i actually just got sucked in because i was looking for the CNN link for aid organisations, and one of those comments just stuck out like a sore thumb, then I read further. shouldn't have done it I know, but it really hit me in the gut. I know there's a lot of anger out there nowadays, and much of it is misdirected.
    Just hard to swallow.

    Ok...To answer your question...yeah! They'll be put on hold with just about everything else affected in the manufacturing/ port district. Don't think anyone was putting you down dude, or implying you were taking a low road... just pretty tough to say anything about how a multitude of products will be affected given the severe situation. Toyota, Honda/Acura, insurance companies, shipping companies...hell...just about everything driving commerce there is on hold. If making the point that they should at least be given a chance to count the dead, and wait for the ground to stop shaking with the tsunami sirens still going of every couple hours makes me a "high road dick".....so be it.

    whoa.....That's actually wrong. I was actually replying to your post and thought it would be cool to actually talk to you about your question. If you read my post, you'd see i said i know that's not where you were coming from. AND calling me PC?
    How's the fact that my wife is Japanese, worried about family and friends????? Saw the same comments I did? Coming from people who for all you know are your neighbors down the street.
    I mentioned the CNN comments as a comparison to yours.....not put you in the same category, so lighten up!!!!!
    PC......Fuck that.

    You are WAY out of line here, man. You've got one remaining shot to prove yourself to be respectful around here. You pull this shit again and you're banned. Plain and simple.

    Nobody was attacking you or trying to be "PC" or be all snotty high road. It's called etiquette, and you exercised little of it in your first post and absolutely NONE of it in your follow-up posts.
