chess - I'm not touchin' that haiku!! I had it once and it took enormous amounts of penicillin to clean up. The itching was unbearable.

Twirly, I read your posting three times. I'm not sure what you said but I'm strangely excited. I love you man!!!!

In general, when I wandered into this forum, I found it's tone refereshing and the information was really helpful. I did alot of deep diving and the detail was wonderful. Of late, there is a hint of wandering and hijacking. I am going to try and get a bit more focus on the esoteric goal of actually being helpful, but I don't think the forum is becoming an animal house.

Having said that, - "Quoits, anyone?"

A few haiku entries:

Wonderful mantra:
My ears have god-like power
Science can't touch them


Always trust your ears
Scientific evidence
Is a pile of crap


Rock, paper, scissors
I'll roshambo you for it
BAM! Ears beat em' all.


Ears are not alone
In between then sits a lump
Influencing all

Does GTFO mean what I think it means? If it does, then real classy.

For those of you who have not been around very long, I believe that this thread progressed (mastastisized - sp?) in such a way due to many past, irresolvable disagreements between certain members of the forum.
I would hope everybody can discern differences of opinion from personal attacks. If we cannot differ w/out getting personally upset then interaction and the free exchange of info will be impossible.
I KNOW I have offended many people with my opinions, but there are many reasons why I hold them and voice them. Some of those whom I have offended, I am pleased to see, seem to still consider me a "friend".
And (my 2 cents) if receivers do sound different, it is to such an infinitesimal (sp?) degree as to be largely irrelevant in the face of other factors.

Is is really worse than TFB? At least I didn't resort to name-calling and personally insulting a large percentage of the forum membership.

Around here it's hate the sin and not the sinner.

pmb, how could you get it so backwards? There is an arrogant and immodest intolerance among a clique on this site. Review this thread and you will see rude and insulting comments. What provoked this behavior? A different opinion? A report that someone can hear an audible difference between receivers?

Who is stating 'facts' in an arrogant and pedantic manner? Not folks to whom these insults have been directed.

If all we do here is stroke each other about how smart we are for having chosen Axiom speakers, that really gets old pretty quickly. I think it doesn't bode well for this site that one clique of rude shouters attempt to drown out any opinion which differs with their own.

It's hard to stay mad at a big palooka.

BTW, I highly recommend this site. Every regular here fits at least one (if not more) of the illustrated personas.

My replies to you
shall heretofore be stated
in a haiku form.

Arrogance is not
on one side of the battle.
Pride is everywhere.

I'm right! No, I'm right!
This is what it boils down to
when you look at it.

Fundamental diffs
aren't easy to overcome
when we're all entrenched.

I like Peter's Haikus A LOT.

I hope both 2x6spds and Chesseroo stick around, because I enjoy and learn from both of them A LOT.

Craig has got to be shaking his head, and his restraint is something to which I can only aspire.

I think y'all should spend more time on listening and drinking and less time typing and thinking.

My receiver sounds the same as it did yesterday, as far as I can tell.

Where's Bren and his campfire sing-a-long?

talking and learning
are not like understanding
but beer often helps

In the words of Lyle Lovett, I love everybody.

Peace out, word up, GTO, AM/FM ... oh whatever.
