Well our sun comes out during the day i'm not sure where you live. lol However we get a lot of daylight hours and sunny days during our summer and the temp can get up to 90deg for the max. Thats warm by my count.

Please continue your discussion this is too fun.

The sun comes up , not always out. In case your too ignorant to understand, if its cloudy then its is not a sunny day even though we all know the sun is behind the clouds. And 90 degree weather a couple days a year is hardly noteworthy. Your condescending tone is not appreciated here but for some reason no matter how many times your told you continue with it. People who think they know everything really bother those of us who do.

Alaskan:

Sorry, but you have totally misread the character of this company forum & seem not to understand the spirit & tone here.

Virtually every post that you make has an aggressive bent, is confrontational & now understandingly defensive. This is much like what is continually demonstrated out in the wild, wild AVS. Therefore, it often is not a very enjoyable place to hang out & it need not occur here...

Can you explain how I should discuss A/V topics then because apparently you don't approve of how I bring up these subjects. I should be a conformist correct? Because the nail that sticks out the furthest and has a different point of view always gets hit first.

I never thought that an A/V forum would be used as a blog. Your right i'm a sinner and i'm not perfect as is humanity. Please continue explaining how I should behave correctly as no one here has shown me any compassion or welcomed me. And as such I post according to the atmosphere in which I was welcomed, which has been hostile at best when first bringing into discussion how the Industry Standards for mounting surrounds is to place them 2' or more above the listener. To which I was bombarded with bullying for sticking so closely to the standards. Aren't we all trying to achieve perfection in our Systems?

People have judged me before even getting to know me or even attempt a polite conversation.

Let he without sin cast the first stone.

Unlike most others here, I have had some meaningful dialogues with you over the past couple of weeks ref QS8s, V4s, web site updates & amp power; however, I always get the feeling that you are talking down to me & others here.

Your tone is unfriendly & it just doesn't cut it here...

I've linked my sources whenever I could and tried to be as straight a talker as I can...

And you believe my tone to be unfriendly.
Well i've got news for you but your tone in response to me is neither friendly. But i'm trying to be the bigger man here and show respect which is why i've explained myself. You shouldn't bully someone who simply looks a things differently than you.

I never meant any disrespect and the tone here towards me has been anything but friendly except for a private message that I received from a member who's been here almost 6yrs. Explaining to me that people who don't agree with certain people are singled out and bullied.

However I wish nothing but respect and want a meaningful dialog in whatever manner it takes to actually get back to discussing A/V topics. What else could I possibly say to get people off my back? As i've already apologized to any that took my tone the wrong way.

There have been 2 new members join since approximately the beginning of April - AlaskanAVGuy (72 posts) & Serenity Now (57 posts).

One's posts often results in acrimony. In contrast, the other's are simply appropriate to the discussion that illicit no consternation.

There must be a reason...

Tam: There IS a reason! Serenity is the former Hellcommute, only now w/o the commute and a new place to live. He has a new URL and therefore could sign up as a totally new person. He didn't change his avatar as a clue. He has always been a cool guy.

As to other people, there will always be a person or two to arrive just to rattle our cages. (GT8Super, anyone?) Some stay, still, but most leave shortly after they stop getting the agita they seek (or desperately need).

I think Nick's "Shut Up Already" thread needs to mention names.

A note on experts.

Most real experts on anything do NOT consider themselves as such, as they know there will always be someone else who knows more, well, at least until their mentors are dead.

It is the task of others to elevate one to the status of "expert," not one's self.

It's like "what you deserve." You may get everything you ever wanted in life, in spades even, but it will always be up to others to decide what you really deserve.
