Not at all. I thought I was dam conservative to tell you the truth. What exactly does his post have to do with Home Theatre anyway? I'm sorry but I stand by my post. If he doesn't like it here, MOVE.............now..............please!

I would be curious how some here would react if the dude lived in the US and posted this BS. If there is one thing that I have always admired about my Americans friends, it's how proud most are to be American. I doubt some of the proud Americans here would let a crack like that slip by without saying something.

It was a dumb post. Plain and simple.

John,

Come back in the morning and reread his post. He's just complaining that he has to pay 15% more than others to get his Axioms. So it did have something to do with home theater, after all. Are you saying he doesn't have the right to complain that he has to pay 15% more?

Every free person has the right to complain about his countries policies that affect him negatively. We Americans do it all the time. His "not proud to live in Canada" was ill advised, but I doubt he meant it literally. You were pretty quick to take it personally and come out shooting. Take it easy, will ya. The angrier you are, the slower you should be to post.

Yes he has the "right to complain". But don't you think it's a bit of a stretch to say that you aren't proud to live in Canada because you have to pay 15% more for some speakers?
While Canada is not perfect, no country can say that they are. Is Canada not consistently ranked at the top of countries in the world to live?

I agree with NeverHappy, I am Canadian and very proud to be one. If it takes something as trivial as what, 15% on some speakers for someone to say they are not proud of this country then go buy your one way ticket somewhere and tell us how great it is.

Well it's the am and I'm back and reread the post. I still think it's BS and I have every right to call him out for making a stupid comment. As for me being angry, not at all.

In reply to:

but not proud of live in Canada




That says it all. There is no way to misinterpret that comment.

In reply to:

Glad to see I'm not only one!

No mods here. You post it, you have to live with it.

Sheesh - take it easy on him. This is supposed to be a friendly place where people can learn more about Axiom products. If you want to give people the impression that all Axiom owners are belligerent, unfriendly people, please take that to another forum. (This also applies to the people who debase Axiom because the production is not completely vertically integrated.) He was just stating that he didn't want to pay an extra 15% for speakers when he could get them at the regular price elsewhere. He was obviously joking when saying he wasn't proud to be a Canadian. Not everything is exactly as it is written; the skill of taking things in context is important, not only in forums but in everyday life.

Additionally: Don't you think you give people who aren't Canadian a bad taste of what it is to be Canadian by being angry with a fellow Canadian?

Why has there been so much bickering on these boards lately? I know that it has killed my willingness to check them often. The Quality Posts : Junk Flames ratio is decreasing very rapidly, and I believe it is due to people just simply not being cordial to their fellow forum members.
