The Audio Gods Are With Us!

I must bring everyone's attention to a wondrous happening in the "Acoustic effects and size matters thread"; it has been joined by Audio Gods with mind-boggling super-powers. I'm speculating that May Belt, the high priestess of audio quackery, invited them along. Jan has been beseeching his own audio god, JA, to grace the thread with his omnipotence but appears to be coping with his disappointment and is getting along well with the uber-beings that have manifested themselves.

If you do visit the thread be respectful and prepare for a humbling experience. One of the gods can discern the essence of a woofer just by touching it and eschews all known laws of science! (He's not hot on digital either). The other can pass any listening test you might care to think of and not only can identify the effect of any and all tweaks present in a room but can tell any near-deaf mortal what a tweak does and they too will hear it! But better than this he can use more words to say even less more often than Jan - who would have thought that possible?

Understandably they will have no truck with objectivists and Ethan and DUP have been singled out as particularly reviled proponents of this evil sect. But they are merciful and neither have been struck dumb and the gods have magnanamously recognised that they, and all like them, are the unfortunate product of their seriously depleted DNA encoding.

We are truly blessed.

Re: The Audio Gods Are With Us!

Welcome to the forum, Awestruck.

Sorry you felt you had to adopt a new profile to make the post. Personally, I'd prefer if you'd posted through your usual account.

I enjoy the personalities nearly as much as the information exchanged, and if you are posting under multiple guises, its harder to establish context for the message, thus diluting the contribution of your personality.

I dunno, man. May's post #39643 today contains 1,809 words and I can't find even one point anywhere.

Could the point be to drive traffic to the PFO website and increase hits on May belt links, which will assure future articles in which to present additional testimonials and directions to her website which happens to sell tweaks which by her own admission in no way could be affecting the frequency response?

Hey, add up all the words dup has spilled onto this forum and still not made a cogent point and he's got me beat by a mile!

I smell a child in the making.

I can also show you a thread on the DIY audio forum where there are over 100,000 views, and about 1000 posts..and this is the second thread..and it ALL has to do with sounding out and sorting out woofer/midwoofer/fullrange sonics by unpowered FEEL..and handling NOISE.

So what do you say to that, dickwad?

Although, I will freely admit to being seen as a bit of an iconoclastic freak, even in such a crowd.

But, getting back to your self announced ignorance and smallish world view.....

The world is not only bigger and more complex than you think it is, it is also bigger and more complex than anyone who is 'physical' thinks it is.

The limit of your ignorance is not the limit of reality. It might be to you, but that does not mean that I should let your inadequacies rule my existence. So I simply don't. In all common sense---why should I?

The difference here, is that I freely admit when I'm out of my depth..here, you show it off as an attack.

Now, who's the better adjusted human being, here?

Don't puzzle over it too hard now.

People here don't spend time attacking Dup. Dup steps in it all on his own.

Just like you just did.

Re: The Audio Gods Are With Us!

Jan, you just added 27 plus an ! to no point made. listen to yet, did you remove it from the gallery? I thought it was a clear frame with a speaker on it, no? Is it clear to give you the impression the subjective impact of transparency? That's like another step beyond MPINGO EFFECT. Since you would "perceive" this from the visual clue. But then do you have a clue? Do you also think Star Wars movie was a documentary?

Re: The Audio Gods Are With Us!

dup, you're gonna have to learn to speak English.

Hey, dup! Did you notice that thread has more hits than anything you've ever posted? Almost 5k!!! http://forum.stereophile.com/forum/postlist.php?Cat=0&Board=tweaks&page=0

And still going strong!

Look, dup, a 4 and a 7 and a 9 and a five! That's 4795 for you, dup. That's something, huh, dup? Bet you wished you could get that much attention, huh? Bet this scumbag that had to make up a name to start this thread wishes he could get any attention. Looser! Well, you just keep going on and on, dup, like you don't already.

Man, I'm, going to have my agent talk to JA's agent. I need a BIG raise when my contract comes up for renewal. What're you gonna get, dup? Another ban?

Re: The Audio Gods Are With Us!

Some people say our friend, Jan Vigne
calls our friend DUP an intellectual pigmy.

meanwhile DUP hates on Jan
Jan ,in response, calls for his ban

we all might agree, we all may have felt
that no one's crazier than poor May Belt

that DUP may irritate we all agree
but an audio terrorist he do not be

he is not an audio Osama
neither is he an audio Obama
In this ceaseless audio fight
DUP is not one to unite.

I'm w/ Buddha, Elk & AlexO. This thread is heading off a cliff. Someone's going to say something really f^*&'d up. We've already reached our quota for racist/xenophobic rants for the month, as archived in the Dead Zone. I'd hate to see something similarly offensive happen.

Just where do you draw the line at offensive?! Your comments toward May are over the top and repulsive.
