Very thoughtful post over there, although I'm sure that this will not be the end of this never ending crap.

Well done & thanks...

Judging by GTsuper's replies he is gene from AH ? Something i noticed looking at his other threads. No matter what he replies to, his response is basically negative towards the OP. Its like ,nothing is worthwhile unless he endorse's it. Hopefully others see through his BS.

I just wanted to try to make sure that a new person over at AVS with only 4 posts got some word of caution.

He is not Gene. Gene actually slapped the guy down hard for trashing Axiom so much in non related threads.

Well, sticking up for the little guy over at AVS has gotten me flamed and attacked over there... AGAIN. I simply state the the original poster of the thread, who is a new person at AVS, shouldn't let the opinion of one or two guys who are known for bashing Axiom totally discredit a product. I tried to leave it to very helpful information without calling names, and he came back on full attack.

He OBVIOUSLY either visits here a lot, or someone here tipped him off to this thread as he copied/pasted screenshots of my responses here. So I am a little pissed off. At GTPStupid (yea, I am sure he will read this) as well as whomever here potentially threw me under the bus for simply trying to help.

Maybe it was pure CHANCE that GTP saw this thread, but I doubt it. Unless, like I said, he is reading these forums all of the time, but like I said I doubt it. Needless to say, I am signing off for a while to cool down. Of course, that too is exactly what GTPStupid wants. At least I know that I am not some butt-wipe. I am sure that this will make its way over to AVS too. Oh joy. So much to look forward to just for helping someone regardless of what product was being bashed.

I wouldn't worry about this guy. He is obviously a keyboard critic, and a legend in his own mind. He seems to take issue with whatever product people ask about, believing he is the only one with the correct answer. Like they say,never argue with an idiot,the people watching dont know which is which. It seems that the thread has died.I find that responding to thread's like that just paints us as fanboy's and makes things worse. The OP seemed like a pretty astute person and im sure he could see through the negativity.

After rereading GT's post i wonder how someone can own a product , resell said product and then bash said product. Apparently whoever bought said product felt it was a good product. Not every product suit's everybody.

It continues.

Unfortunately, this is one of the problems with the net & its anonymity. While it can provide a wealth of information for us all, anything negative (valid or not) hangs around forever & is continually regurgitated years later. It just never goes away & I believe can unduly influence those who can't or don't think for themselves.

Eventually this has to cause some damage to any entities at which this stuff is directed. Search engines are not their friend in this respect.

From what I've seen all over the net, there are so many who cannot bring themselves to choose products on their own - it seems to have be a massive group effort. Just look at the number of threads that pop up daily that beseech others to make their choice for them, even though a simple search back for over a month would provide more information & opinions than one can ever assimilate. There is often no real need to start a new thread to pose the same questions over & over. Thus all of the reoccurring themes, opinions & sometimes heated debates (often by the same crews) are continually replicated & stay around forever.

I need to stop patrolling these other forums for my own mental health; however, some valid & helpful information is sometimes lurking out there & I don't want to miss it...

The problem is it is easier for someone to start their own thread and follow it than to search for the information they desire, thus the never ending cycle.
