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

While I mostly agree with pufrock's post & points of view on CA, I also like honesty. For the record and if this has not changed recently, I would like to mention that pufrock has not been banned or banished from CA. Here is what Chris C. writes:

Hi prufrock - After reading, and removing, your post about Scientology and Scientologists it's very obvious you have a major axe to grind with many people who think differently than you. Your goal of saving newbies from purchasing a product you don't like or don't believe in is the identical front 99% of people in your shoes hide behind.

I believe Hydrogen Audio is the perfect place for you to express yourself, minus the religious statements.

I always encourage opposing views here at CA. But your abrasive argumentative tone and facade of saving people from themselves (who likely don't want to be "saved") is getting old. Everything discussed in this thread has been discussed countless times in other threads here on CA and dozens of other sites. No new ground has been covered in this very strangely titled thread. Covering new ground isn't a prerequisite for continuing threads here at CA but when your goal is to talk newbies into believing what you believe purhaps you should mention items that they haven't read several times. There is no way a newbie can read this thread and glean anything helpful. It's much more likely you've just rallied your base and vice versa.

Your idea to write a blog summary of this could be helpful. But, as all of the ideas and beliefs discussed here have been discussed many many times, you could have used Google to find all this information and all the old arguments in less than 0.002 seconds.

If you're here at CA to contribute or learn something I encourage you to stay and help grow this wonderful community dedicated to our wonderful hobby. If your motives are antithetical to contributing and learning you can move on to another site.


Regardless of what anyone might think of CA, I fail to see why one should post rather immature messages on this forum, even though the local crowd might nod their heads in agreement.

Sorry pufrock, but his type of behavior makes no sense to me and is quite disappointing!

Peter

That's been the only requirement in the past. You can post anything you like when everyone agrees with you.

To quote DARcode, “Yawn...” JJZolx takes another opportunity to whine about HA in a way that is just vague enough that no actual argument need be advanced.
Yes, how awful that a forum about common interests should occasionally converge upon common opinions!

Who are the sponsors here?
There are none. The most Hydrogenaudio has had was ads by Google, but it no longer does.

What I stated is pretty much true of any forum. HA is no better or worse.
