You mean you can lash out at people everytime they respond to your analogy but people can't respond in kind?

And only the person you wrote to is allowed to respond to what you wrote? Go start a pm exchange if that's what you want.

That is what I want, that's why I asked you to Skype to discuss this. 

 

I'm here to learn, not to troll, not to fight, not to argue.  I'm new to the high-end headphone world and eager to learn.


You're acting like a rabid dog.  You seem offended at my initial post which wasn't meant to offend at all.  You also seem to misinterpret my jokes (BO = body odor). I was attempting to break the ice and calm things down, but I guess I'm just not that funny.

 

Anyway, you seem to have an axe to grind and have had some bad experiences in your past here, but please don't use me to vent your frustrations.  That isn't fair, nor is it a good way to welcome new members.  Thanks.

Thanks for accepting my call, Joe, glad we worked everything out.  You're much nicer than I expected.  biggrin.gif

Is it just me or do people come in here lately all ready to create a fight? A question is asked, it's answered straightforwardly and all of a sudden it's as if their mother has been insulted. I honestly find it to be pretty baffling.

What'd you say about my mother?

The word placebo is insulting. That already defies all logic!

He called her an 'it' and pretty and baffling. tongue.gif

 

 

Nonsense aside, you're not alone bigshot. Dunno why they take even short, completely unemotional replies as insult.

It's like switching from an initial attack mode ("I'll show y'all you dern sciency guys who's the boss here!")  into defensive mode after getting a reply they do not seem to be able to comprehend.

It's a lot easier just to politely ask for clarification.

I notice the pattern as well...and I've only been around here for half a year.

 

I'm also a car guy and used to frequent those special interest forums for many years. When a sub-forum has special guidelines that vary from the other parts of the site, I recall it being made clearer up front. For example, some had a "sticky" thread right up front (the 1st thread in the sub-forum) with some guideline type title (e.g., Sound Science forum FAQs [or manifesto]...READ BEFORE POSTING).

 

Maybe Sound Science should have a FAQ or some such up front? Maybe it would prevent at least some of the messy confrontations...just a thought

Maybe a warning picture like this (which I came by today on 9gag of all places):

It used to say in the description of the forum that Sound Science was the only forum where DBT was allowed to be discussed.
