I have just been banished from Computer Audiophile. Is that a good thing. Are the people here nice?

Metrosexuals, sweet transvestites, its all good mate. The link below gives a good definition of a girlie-man.

What's not good though are Woo-Heads. Have almost completed the debriefing/deprogramming from that other site. Feeling almost normal again.
Its a weird experience eh. It was like going to an auto shop to get a vehicle part and being taken aside by a salesman who hits you with a whole heap of bizarro BS: "Sir, we can certainly sell you that cheap accelerator cable, but if you want truly great performance, this $1000 state of the art one is well worth it."

I mean if you went onto a homoeopathy or some new age website you would expect some weirdness. But all I wanted was advice on some machine parts.

So, I clicked through to the page whence the image was sourced – SNEAK PEEK: "The Governator": Schwarzenegger Fights The 'G.I.R.L.I.E. Men' – and, erm, well: wacko.gif
I’m surprised I hadn’t heard about that. I suppose I oughtn’t to be surprised by strange ideas – especially in comic books wink.gif – but yeah, that’s definitely one! I did an additional bit of browsing to verify that the page’s date of 30 March was just a coincidence… which would have been more believable, actually!

Ooh, have I started a new term here? biggrin.gif I’m surprised it (according to another quick Googlin’) doesn’t seem to have had any immediately discoverable usage in this context. But yes, as you implied, the same kind of ‘thought’-processes do seem to apply to various flavours of pseudoscience, charlatanry, and exploitation of false hope. Let’s hope that, somewhere/sometime, there’s some kind of antidote of a similarly broad scope.
