  1. I can't lie. I really enjoy ML's music reviews.
  2. You don't have to accept it. But that won't stop it from being true.
  3. Jud, I've always appreciated your kindness and relentless attempts to find "middle ground". But, with due respect, I see you more as a fixture here than as a dynamic poster. What I mean is that I can usually predict what you post before you post it. You've said the same thing many, many, many times here. Keep in mind now that all the miscreants have been purged, your posts will begin to look more snarky. You're next Jud! 😄
  4. For how long? I don't know Chris, he's Quint's boss now, it's just not a good look for the forum to have such an audiophile luminary banned. 🙂 I'm going to reply to Jud, then I'm out. Thank you!
  5. Ok, I'm leaving for now. When you re-instate Scoggins, can I come back for just one "I told you so"? 🙂
  6. This thread is disruptive? Man, that bar sure has lowered since the weekend. When the civility dust up happened, I did exactly what you asked. I stopped all snarky comments. I contributed to the Polestar effort. I helped random people in the help thread. I know you are aware of these things. And I just kept quiet hoping others would too and your purge would not be necessary. So hopefully you understand my disappointment when I was rewarded with the purge.
  7. So civility is the opposite of "keeping it real"?
  8. Dude, I've appeared before panels of Star Fleet admirals. Forgive me if I'm not impressed 🙂
  9. I asked a question a while back when the civility dust up was in full swing and CC's inbox was overflowing with complaints of incivility. The question was sincere and in no way meant to "stir the pot". That question: "Is it rude to call irrational thought "irrational thought"'? The answer from a majority of the forum was "yes!". I'm still honestly flummoxed by that. I guess being civil is politely lying. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  10. I can't speak for "they" (heck, I don't even know who "they" are). Now forgive me if your post was "meant for a wider audience" and you're not really participating in the thread. I wouldn't want to embarrass you. 🙂 For me, anyone who is in this hobby and utterly rejects the notion of confirmation bias or the merits of blind testing is somewhere on the irrational scale. Where exactly isn't really the issue. But there is a sort of stubbornness with some when it comes to accepting the existence of confirmation bias. I'm not saying that's you, but you've never struck me as a para
  11. I appreciate your response. And don't spend another second clutching pearls about "the usual suspects". They're gone. Oh, and why do you always go to fisticuffs? :
  12. too late Oh, I guess it's not rude when you do it?
  13. Hello Archimago The "Objective-Fi" sub-forum is a quarantine zone, just as the Sound Science sub-forum is at Head-Fi. Now that CC has made the linkage between rational thought and incivility, "Objective-Fi" will always be known as the place the "mean" people hang out.
  14. Indeed. At least you can't now accuse someone of publicly preening lest you be called a hypocrite. 🙂
  15. You might be mixed up and this was an extremely awkward attempt to call me a coward (anonymous screen name?). Show me where I called someone a coward, please.
  16. I'm pretty sure you have been nothing but antagonistic towards me since my very first post here. With due respect, your opinion is meaningless to me.
  17. You have been waiting for this day for some time. Enjoy it. Heck, revel in your complete victory over those rude people you detest so very much. You won!
  18. I remember meeting you when you came to support Lavorgna after he was banned. I also remember you used your work experience with mentally disabled people to offer armchair diagnoses of forum members. Good times! Please, can we please get some of that wisdom in this thread? It's just what's needed!
  19. I think we just have different definitions of what that behavior might be. "please don't let anyone make be feel stupid" is a pretty irrational thought IMHO. "please purge the forum of everyone who makes me feel stupid" crosses the line to behavior. YMMV, of course.
  20. It has been literally years since you addressed me directly in this forum. I'm quite skeptical of your intentions now.
  21. To me, this forum used to be a place where the traditional audiophile "influencers" had no power. And that, more than anything else, made it a place I looked forward to visiting. This purge marks the end of that era. With the restrictions on irrational thought now lifted, the forum will be fertile ground for the traditional influencers. Tell you what: When Scoggins becomes a regular poster here again, I'll be happy to give you the opportunity to apologize. 🙂
  22. I must say I'm a little surprised to see you trolling. You know exactly what I mean. But here's an example, "MQA is great because Bob Stuart is smarter than you".
  23. While I completely agree, I suspect this ship has already sailed. Look at all the polite posts made by the polite people celebrating (politely, of course) the conquest of those rude rational thinkers! CC took the gloves off completely, so this thread is an exercise in utter futility IMHO. CC believes without reservation that the "true believers" should never be made to feel uncomfortable or have to justify their irrational beliefs. I don't think there's anything else to be said. And let's not beat around the bush, True Believers spend way more money than rational thinkers. Des
