I've seen that on other forums as well, but this forum is largely inactive and now is pretty laid back.

The Axiom website should be an open forum, friendly and welcoming about audio in general and Axiom audio products in particular. It should be a good thing for Axiom and a strong counter-voice to the trolls on so many audio sites who bash Axiom speakers.

At one time, we discussed speakers, modifications, and such explosive topics as vinyl, tube amplification, speaker wire, power cords and interconnects. This provoked some hostile reactions from those who know too much and pretty soon these discussions ended. These same folk were also pretty unwelcoming to outsiders (non or potential Axiom owners) who took the hint, didn't come back and in general this site went to sleep.

Then along comes Mr. Mojo who single handed injected some life into our forums. I don't know how it was that Mojo rubbed Craig the wrong way. That is very unfortunate because both are so valuable to this forum.

Let a thousand flowers bloom! I hope Craig takes his Axioms off the for-sale site and comes back. We'll see.

Well, too bad I don’t have any place to put his LFRs ...
That and the small fact that, money wise, I’m going to be a bit tighter then usual over the next few months.

Anyway, It’s not hard to find him by google but think it would just result in an unpleasant conversation.
I’m petty sure there are other reasons for his departure then this thread or an individual.

Yeah, I came back after a little bit and was going to change my post to something completely random because I felt guilty that I was "mean," but the forums won't let me change it. I've always been pretty calm and even keeled around here and usually just keep my mouth shut to "keep the peace" but for once didn't. Sorry for the harsh words.

Anyway. I'll exile myself and leave you all alone for real this time. Wow. I can't believe that after 16+ years of coming here multiple times pretty much every day that I won't be back.

Look me up in the Facebook groups if you need anything, although I just burned and then blew up the bridge with my last post so the small handful of you won't miss me anyway.

EDIT: I reported my own post to the admin to have it deleted for being "rude" for voicing my experience.

Why Nick? What is going on here?

We shmooze audio, sometimes we fool around. Some of us like Shakti stones and Synergistic Research tiny but expensive 1/2" resonators, and other sundries (kidding). Live and let live. Stick around. This is the House of Axiom. You are a charter member.

PS
You reported yourself to the administrators! That's great. You must be a golfer!

Unless your post has already been deleted I don't see anything I would consider rude.

I have been on the forums for a long time (about the same as you, I guess) and have seen the activity levels rise and fall depending on how many people are in the middle of a build. During the builds things are very active, with lots of questions and lots of debates, while between builds everyone seems a bit lost and we mostly talk about non-audio stuff.

People stick around because they have come to know each other over the years, whether online or at the Axiom anniversary meet-ups, although they go from checking the forums a couple of times a day during busy periods to checking in every month or two during the slow times.

I think of that as normal although I guess a larger forum might be able to maintain a fairly constant level of activity all the time. Then again I live in Canada where it's cold, dark and boring for a few months every year anyways.

For a good part of the last year Mojo has been doing most of the builds himself (!!) so if you don't enjoy his colorful writing style and obvious excitement about the technology I guess it could start to chafe, but I see that as just one more phase of 20 or 30 that the forum has gone through.

I guess this is a long way of saying "stick around, OK ?" smile

Nick, I hope you stick around. It would be nice if Craig came back, too, but he did sound pretty committed to being gone. Both of you have a lot of knowledge to offer, and I know I won't be able to fill that void.

John, I'll try to be more bland. More like Randle McMurphy after his lobotomy.

Nah, that would be a loss... I was thinking more of some kind of color** coding scheme where the higher-hyperbole posts are flagged so people know to take them with a grain of salt smile

** hmpph... new forum SW seems to insist on US spellings

I'm thinking mostly about posts like:

New member: "should I get M3's or M22's ?"
Mojo: "you should get LFR1100 actives, they will change your life"
