Here’s what I deduce from the Digital Home thread:
This guy, “Hugh”, was giving his opinion. Not even a strong opinion.
Again, typically, Axiom forum members jumped this guy for having a difference of opinion not complimentary to Axiom.
Think of the way Axiom forum members discuss companies like Bose, Klipsch, Monster, Energy etc.
This thread “More Misformation about Axiom's!!!” is the equivalent of “the pot calling the kettle black”.

Just silly!!

Did you mean "misinformation" rather than "misformatiom"

Your getting sleepy. S-l-e-e-p-y. V-e-r-y S-l-e-e-p-y. Repeat after me. "There are no better speakers than Axion." Now when I snap my fingers, you will click on the PRODUCTS link then on the EPIC 80-600 link, and you will place an order.

I'm not ripping the guy for having an contrary opinion about Axiom. I'm ripping the guy for banning two posters in the forum and closing down the thread because he did not like what they said. Fair enough if you have listened to Axioms and don't like them, but let others have their say as well. Axiom would let this guy say what he wants to on their forum without banning him or closing a thread.

I did participate in that thread. I guess if 'hugh' said something along the lines like" I have listened to them both and prefered the Paradigms" then that may have come across OK, but instead issued a " don't waste your money on Axioms" it does come across a little harsher and does insult those of us who have spent money on them.I have owned both and currently have Axioms as my mains but could easily own either brand.To start a thread over here about what's goin on over there though, may be a bit of an over reaction.Just enjoy the music boys, whatever you own!

This stuff from Hugh is like what you read a lot in forums. A guy has a certain brand of speakers (or TV, DVD player, receiver, etc.) and every other brand is total crap in comparison. I love my Axiom's and they are a huge step up from the Bose cube speakers. But, I don't really have any other frame of reference to judge any other speakers by. Maybe the Paradigms are much better than Axioms, but I can't say since I haven't A/Bed them in my room. I did just recently got an Aperion set of speakers, but since they are not in the same room as my Axiom's I can't really say which speaker I like better. They just sound different. I really like how my Axioms sound in the home theater and really like how the Aperions sound in the other room with background music.

Two points:
1st Yes it was childish to ban members for what are really benign comments.
2nd Axiom forum members have no say in who says what to whom. Unless it’s completely and overtly rude, you’re safe. Axiom staff has sole discretion in this area.

Nice!

Oh, and Hugh is acting like a crybaby. I've been a part of other (non-speaker related) forums where the owner/moderator of the forum picked Blu-Ray as the winnder over HD-DVD (I know, he was right), but it was WELL before the battle got going, and he was misquoting specs and all out lying. Well, most of the people there had no clue about anything home theater related, and when I spoke up with pure facts, no opinion, my posts got deleted. I reposted thinking I must not have hit the "Post" button or something, and I got banned.

BANNED for stating facts, with links to the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD sites with the specs and details, and all on a site that had NOTHING to do with home theater. Well, I got my access back, but to this date, I have a hard time going back there. The guy is no longer the "king", but he convinced the current management that I was a troublemaker, and when they took over there was no record of my messages... Just his word against mine. It is amazing when a troll can run a forum.
