    Default What the hell is happening to this place and its members!?

    Seriously the BS and rudeness I see towards some people is unreal. And most of it comes from newer members who think their king ****. It's getting REAL hard to bite my tongue and I'm about ready to just say f it and tell it like it is to most folks. Because I just can't put up with any BS from these morons any more.

    I certainly don't like coming around here if this is how some people are going to be. F that.

    Right on both counts. Some extremely rude people and some great folks too. I wish the mods would put an end to all the politics on this site. Take it to Glen Beck's site or MoveOn but stay away from CP.

    I love this place, yes some not so nice members and dummies, just ignore them. Although some of them are entertaining.

    Overall more great members here, lots of knowledge and help.

    Just my opinion.

    Good grief. I love this forum, but I must say that out of all of the ones I am a member of, this one takes the cake when it comes to drama...

    Sometimes it is slow on other forums - so they come trawling/trolling here.

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    Ever notice that a heated thread can sometimes take a sudden turn when somebody suddenly posts a note that they read something wrong, posted in error on something, say sorry or a "you're right" and then the the whole thing becomes a lovefest between two previously going toe to toe?

    Tone matters. Respect you'd project in person gets simple left out on the web. Have you noticed the respect and kidding that goes on between some of the members here that have attended the Polk get togethers? Do you really think others here are that different? Be an example of a more civil tone. The light hearted threads need to spill over into more of the heated ones and each one can be the one that does that.

    And just because somebody has a low post count here, doesn't necessarily mean they're an audio infant. I remember being treated pretty rude here early on and have used that as a motivation to remind myself to not do the same. The person going out of their way to purposely step on my toes had and has no idea of my level of experience.

    I particularly feel bad when a real beginner asks a question and gets really cut off in overly short ways. You have to remember some people are into this at a whole different level than others and commit very different bucks to their projects.

    Be the good example.

    Drenis my friend, you know I love ya pal, but lets be honest for second here. Do you remember when you first joined ? You weren't exactly Mr. Charm school either.
    Some new members just take awhile to get the lay of the land. Some will stay, some will leave, and some will just linger long enough to be a pain in the arse. Just the way it is bro, on the internet anyway. All in all, not a big to do if you ask me, these things always work themselves out.

    Well I have to say I agree with everything that everyone has said.

    Good strategy. Don't let on that you don't have a clue as to what's going on

    Excellent points from all areas that display common sense and good judgement and ....

    Careful ! Don't over do it !

    .... stuff like that.

    Good. Now throw out some stuff to cover your arse just in case you're the one who F'd up

    Perhaps some input from Ukipha Heap of the Firesign Institute Of Philosophy can offer some insight and inspiration

    This place started a downward spiral around 1999 that it hasn't recovered from. The old-timers from 2011 may not have recognized this, but it's there.

    Maybe a different scene from the good days, but this site is the one that started me and still kicks me down the road of higher end audio. Hopefully, things will settle down soon.
