When did "we" do that? Is that why Sonicfox is no longer around? Or maybe she finally bought a soundbar and after hearing it, decided life without "real" speakers is not worth living.

I hope she looked into the one I suggested.

Ten to Fifteen years ago, every forum was jumping with traffic. There were "hot chick" threads, adult beverage threads, GTG's ... it was a lot of fun. No one took the hot chick threads seriously.

In today's Politically correct world, fun is forbidden, and far too many people are looking for reasons to be offended.

I am not sure that is what has driven Matt away. I suspect it is the way threads tend to spiral away from the topic.

I do know that in my case when I see a thread become less interesting, I simply stop reading. I post very infrequently - as you can see from me registering in 2002 and the low numbers of posts I make!

Perhaps some people are less tolerant.

Mike, my comments were about the macro view of the forums, not Matman's reason for leaving.

Hopefully, he is just on vacation, not gone.

I take full responsibility for bobblehead leaving. I littered these boards with all kinds of immature comments and very little audio talk. I brought out the worst in some people. It won't happen again. Back to the serious Mojo some of you knew a decade ago.

It can't be a cold and univiting forum either.
The more the merrier so long as its legit and we all share a similar passion.
I'm not for haters or whiners nor forum nudity etc. Fun. Music. The odd poke at another member, you know, the good stuff.

FWIW being funny and being antagonistic are not the same thing. I tend to be easily bruised and a total asshole all at the same time, i am very passionate smile People have given 2x6speeds a hard ride at times about his tube amps etc where as i think all forms of audio are relevant,whatever makes you happy not how you get there. We have gone through ups and downs around here ,such is the human condition.

People don't know you're kidding if they cant see your face. smile Text has a way of being cruel without that intention.

I would love to read about people's setups, trials and aha moments. It's kind of selfish, but the only reason I am still here is the occasional anecdote where someone's experience links to something science related in a very tangential way. Sometimes they don't really realize they have shared some pretty valuable experience that is helping affirm or deny my own knowledge. In my opinion it's what a hobbyist audio forum should be. Sharing, building, bettering.

Richard, a complete stranger except for our relation on the forum, sent me personal property to test, relate and share with everyone. This was a great experience, and not possible without the forum. smile There is almost no point in being here if learning from one another becomes scarce.
