Just a quick note to tell you that the shoutbox has officially been retired. We’ve had complaints over the years due to comments in the shoutbox being offensive (whether intended as such or not, the disappearing-post-format makes it impossible to keep context alive for long). Please resume regularly scheduled bantering in the Water Cooler, and please remember your manners.

Complaints? I tell you, there's a lot of people in this world that really need a hobby.

I didn't use the shout box very often, but virtually every time I read a comment in it, it made me laugh.

I think the forum would be a better place with the shout box, and without the whiners....

I think it's important to remember that this IS a commercial site designed to help potential customers buy their speakers. Although I personally was never offended, there have been times when I thought "This doesn't make a very good impression" to some first-time visitors. What's funny to one person can be offensive to another, and everyone is entitled to their personal feelings.

Kumbayah and all that.

Really, if JP weren't so obnoxious, we wouldn't be in this predicament.

I respect Axioms decision, bud. It's the complaints that ultimately drove them to this decision that bother me.

The same applies to Bob's post a while back that had a homosexual slant to it. If it was of a heterosexual vein, I doubt anyone would have said anything.

It's always J.P. And I'm glad you said it, because if I did, Peter would be on me wink.

I guess speech is only free until they start charging for it.

I don't find you that attractive, Cam.

Cam, wrap yourself in bacon and he'll change his mind.

I'll do it if you take the picture and I get to eat some of the bacon.
