I agree. I am always polite, and stick to the facts, and I never insult anyone until they have insulted me several times. The most insulting people are those who have beliefs about audio that they can't back up, and they hate it when you explain the facts, no matter how politely. There's a thread at an audiophile forum about tweaks. It's up to 673 posts, and many contain insults such as this gem from yesterday:
"You're acting non-sensical as usual. You're either a baby that needs a milk bottle or tit delivered straight to your mouth before you drink or you're trying to set yourself up in some imaginary ivory tower pretending to be some highly-educated intellectual type where others must prove anything to you ... you continue to show that you're educated far beyond your intelligence when you think you can sit there in your baby stroller or imaginary ivory tower demanding that others provide Professor Ethan sufficient proof before he lifts a finger. Let's be honest, Ethan. You and your ilk are nobodies, just like the rest of us are nobodies ... I think there's a lot of laziness involved here too ... climb up out of your baby stroller or climb down from your imaginary ivory tower ... Or you can just play dumb and lazy the rest of your life and continue wasting everybody's time."
Pretty bad, eh? This is in response to my saying I'll be glad to consider the value of "power" products as soon as someone shows an improvement at the output of the connected audio device. The fact that a forum will ban you for your opinion shows they know
they have no rebuttal, so all that's left is censorship.
