Why does the Music Electronics Forum have a soapbox to climb up on and spew forth? It was requested by a forum member as a continuation of the OT/BS sub-forum on ampage, which in turn was requested by the membership there as a place where friends and associates could hang out and engage in discusslon of an off-topic nature without disrupting the primary technical focus of the site.
Speaking of in the beginning? The origin of the soapbox, was to climb on at the corner, or at campaigns, to get a little higher than those standing around, to air your information, gripes or grievances! So let's get to soapboxing!
