To show proof, we could always start another "Axioms are bright" thread.


Or the flipside - many other manufacturers are dull and muddy.

I think my point is well proved even in jest.
Mentioning the statement "Axioms are bright" has already incited replies to counter the topic.

Let's not kid anyone. People on this Axiom forum defend Axiom products. To say this Axiom forum is neutral, completely open and forgiving...come on. I was there once myself, first to the charge to defend Axiom speakers from any negative slander no matter how minute.
Just ask Peter. Tempers all over the place.
Nasty nasty.
Then the beer and wine threads started up...oh what a new direction we took way back then.

SVS can market however they feel appropriate within the laws of the land. If people don't like it, the results will begin to show in their bottom line.

Until you bought another manufacturer's product and you stay around to try to prove to us and yourself that they're better.

I see your thumb in the eye and raise you two fingers.

You see?
Bren knows how the cycle goes.

And that rhymes.

Speaking of cycles, how about that lovely Arctic air mass this morning hmm? A fresh -46C to start off the day.

Yes, the discussion of the meaning of vague adjectives... and then someone makes it personal... and then someone else is Visiting The Bad Again.

I've never really seen much fanboyism here, relatively speaking. I'm not normally a "sign up for a forum type"... don't need to hear my own voice (SidVicious can attest to that), but the average level of intelligence and general respect around here keeps me coming back... something I can't say about any other audio forums. You won't see a Bren R. post on Audioholics or AVS.

So if I defend the users here, it's because of a kinship I have with them. We don't always agree, but the discussion is usually enlightening on all sides.

Bren R.

A false statement will always elicit a reply, n'est ce pas?

I can remember you saying something to that effect....ohhh about 2400 posts ago and here you are, still here for the same reasons I keep dropping by, the wit, the banter, the good reviews, etc.

Well its an interesting point you make. However there is an important distinction between how a business conducts itself legally vs ethically. They are different standards.
Out of curiosity I started a poll a few days ago at another site on this topic. The results are shown below and speak for themselves.

Quote:


Do you accept this as normal business practice at internet forums today?
1. I just want a subwoofer and don't care.
12% [ 3 ]
2. I don't like it but I will still buy their products.
12% [ 3 ]
3. I won't buy the products of unethical companies.
76% [ 19 ]

Total Votes : 25
