 Can someone point me to where this guy has been impolite?
 He may be wrong on the topic, but to me everyone else has been a condescending dick to him.
 I have only seen this guy try to be friendly and laugh off confrontation with light hearted responses only to be met with short snippy replies. Maybe I overlooked some of his replies?
1. Sure, here are a few quotes:
"I can and most people with good ears can pick out 24 over 16 bit depth." - According to this assertion, all those who cannot "pick out 24 over 16bit" (IE. Everyone!), have poor/bad ears. You think it's polite to tell everyone they have bad ears/poor listening skills, when in fact he has no idea what listening skills others have?
"If you don’t hear it there are two reasons One being the system used is subpar and can’t show what many can hear." - As an alternative to us all having poor listening skills/ears, here he's stating that we must have subpar systems. Most (if not all) of us here have put in considerable time, effort and money in order to achieve systems that are above par (good to excellent). You think it's polite to state our systems must be subpar?
"I follow all the math and it’s conjecture ..." - This assertion is clearly and demonstrably false and as this is the sound Science forum, false assertions are unacceptable. Of course, we can all suffer from misunderstandings and inadvertently make a false assertion but how is repeating the same unacceptable, false assertion even after it's been refuted, anything other than impolite? Especially as quite easy to avoid making false assertions in the first place, by simply asking as a question, instead of making a factual assertion.
2. And you don't think that stating/implying we all have "ears" (listening skills) and/or systems which are inferior to his is being a "condescending dick" to start with? In all likelihood, some of us have significantly better listening skills than him and it's virtually certain that at least one of us has a system significantly superior to his, so not only was he being a "condescending dick" but a hypocritical one!
3. Then you appear to have an issue with what you have "only seen". As many/most of his posts have included variations of the first two quotes above, you have maybe overlooked many/most of his replies?
