So you're telling me that you have also racked up 800+ posts on message boards for jeans, shirts, glasses, shoes, watches, phones, cars, laptops, wallets, and televisions? Come on, dude. This is a particular interest for us here. We're not superior to others and it's complete and total BS to look down at people and claim that "Joe Consumer" only cares about having the same thing as everyone else with his favorite colors.
It just baffles me that people can say nonsense like that and not realize how god-awful it makes this whole hobby look.
I understand where you're coming from and mostly agree ... But this is human nature we're talking about. Fact is most people want to be better, know more and have greater than others. That happens to manifest itself in our hobby.
You can rest easy in knowing that the same people we belittle and frown upon probably think we're idiots for spending/wasting this much time on headphones. To each his or her own.
