Would you be OK with it also ?

To answer your question, Alan, yes, I would be OK with you leaving.

Re: How to Moderate a Forum...

I agree with Welsh and understand JV's viewpoint.

I sometimes wonder how any cable or IC can cost more than a very good amplifier. Also, some gear is IMO way overpriced for the product.

I also realize a manufacturer has the right to charge what they want and can get for any item.

Of course, I have the right to not buy whatever I don't want for any reason my mind can come up with.

I wasn't around much when that was going on as I don't recall any discussions about it. I do recall the periodic dust ups about the Stereophile contributors and their political liberties in their writing.

I have wondered for some time now why there was a "General" and an "Open" forum.


Hi Monty!
General Rants n Raves is intended to be a place for general discussion of all things audio or Stereophile-related. The Open Bar is intended for open discussion of things not related to audio.

We started The Open Bar because enough people -- not just Republicans, as Jan suggests -- wanted it.

Re: How to Moderate a Forum...

But the R's were the first to enter the forum - JIMV specifically - to say they wanted their opinions to be heard on this forum due (supposedly) to the perceived "liberal" comments (many of them about W's handling of the wars and the sinking economy if I remember correctly) being placed in Stereophile by a few writers. I didn't hear any liberals clamoring for equal opportunites and I doubt the Open Bar would have existed at all had the R's not been so vocal in their demands. Don't confuse the means and the end result, SM.

Re: How to Moderate a Forum...

Oh, Mark, now you're just being childish. I've told you repeatedly, I do not carry a grudge from thread to thread. What is your point in doing so? I never insulted you or your marriage. You were the one who shouted at me, remember? You were a baaaaaaad boy! You were the one who resorted to vulgarities, not me. It's your post that was singled out for attention here. Why? I still don't know but the fact remains it was you whom Ariel called for being rude to me. So, what's up with this BS? You have a booboo on your feelings and it just won't go away? Is that it? Maybe you need a SpideyMan BandAid.

Mark, if you feel I got the better of you and now you're pissed, whatever happened to that ol'R based "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" thinking? If I got the better of you by posting facts and asking reasonable questions which you could not answer, then wouldn't the better alternative to acting as a child be to pull yourself up and find yourself some facts to counter what I've stated? Pouting is going to achieve what other than playing to the lunatic fringe?

Well, that'll really sting me, won't it?

Man, I need to get out more

Man, I need to get out more often. I had no idea this thread was going on at the time. I've read through the posts by other members that expressed their views. I will make a concerted effort to show a little more respect and still remain the funniest smartest dude on the planet. Of course, I now realize that it runs in the family and it is probably genetics. : I ran that idea through my brother and he told me to STFU.
