Regarding the "dickish" post about tumblr-famous kids and crap gear: I don't think it was dickish at all. I am poor and sympathetic to players on a budget but good taste is FREE. It costs nothing to do some homework, use your ears and develop some taste. Instead of getting butthurt, people should use some common sense and listen to what you're saying. You've got good advice: cost-effective but quality amps are out there, they are better than digital modeling shit. Cheers.
