Yeah, God forbid he get a sense of the damage Westone's reputation has suffered as a result of him dropping off the face of the planet. Although I'm guessing this will be eventually forgotten and forgiven with time if the product is good.
Anyhow, comments like yours always disturb me, because they're dismissive of valid emotional responses and ignorant of how humans communicate and exist in reality
. We're not robots sharing zeroes and ones here. We're complex organisms that function on a number of levels: rational, irrational, emotional, intuitive, associative, experimental, and instinctual. It's not as simple as "the headphone will get here when it gets here. so shut up." I mean, it is that simple in an absolute sense, but humans don't experience reality that way. Take a look at any thread of head-fi. You will see that the vast majority of postings are laced with emotional cues. There is nothing wrong with that.
Sbulack and I were talking about this the other day. As he basically put it, did you ever consider the possibility that all the complaining in this thread served a kind of 'group therapy' function for people's unresolved anxiety and anger? It may not have been the original intention for the use of this thread, but the community has used it to help where it has felt its greatest need in this area. Maybe it's not relevant to your need or perspective, but I hope you'll agree that there's more to this world than your perspective, and that other people have a right to their own as well. And I would imagine there are other aspects of your life in which you do get upset. Maybe it's not headphones, maybe it's your kids, which would in fact suggest you've got your priorities straighter than some of us
This isn't directed entirely at you, moose.... the volume of my response would be a little out of proportion if it were. Your comment simply belongs to a family of abusive sentiments that have appeared over and over on this thread (and others, to be sure) that I'm attempting to address here en masse.

It seems to me that pretty much everything that can be said by us at this point HAS been said, but it also appears to me that there are still folks who would be helped by having a chance to say it.
