Guys (and I mean guys; girls never seem to come to Hardware .. ) I realize that many of us do not agree about a lot of hardware issues we talk about. That's fine; I don't expect us to, we all have our own theories, likes, etc. We have been noticing a lot of really snippy posts on many Hardware threads recently. Most you never see because the Gorts wipe them out (saved for the Gort Party Reel) but a few subtle digs have been overlooked because the Mods can't read every word that is written here. Please, those of you who seem to have permanent PMS when posting, take a Midol before visiting the Hardware Forum, OK? Why bother to type something, post it and then have it removed by a Gort? That serves no purpose. If you don't agree with something someone is saying, you have the right to respond, but (as you learned how to do in High School debate class) please keep it in the GENERAL and don't make it PERSONAL. That way your words will remain for others to read and learn from. Many of us here are experts in our fields or actual equipment reviewers (like Jeff Dorgay of Tone Audio, Michael Jones of Audio Enz, etc.) and are willing to share personal knowledge with you. This is great. If you don't agree with something that they talk about, DON'T GET SNIPPY ABOUT IT. Just offer your own thoughts. Remember the motto: Keep it in the GENERAL; don't make it PERSONAL. From the SH Forum Rules: A reminder about SH Forums Etiquette Please, let's remember that personal attacks on other members are not allowed here. Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, or denigrates another member, either on the public forum, or in a PM (Private Message). We realize that discussions about music can get intense, but we have zero tolerance for taking an argument to a personal level. Example: The use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. If a personal attack occurs, the offender with be notified and depending on the severity of the attack, may be suspended. We expect you to respect the opinions of your fellow forum members. Please curb any urge you may have to flippantly dismiss someone's opinion (Examples: "that's stupid", "that's ignorant", "that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard", or "that's bull*****"). There are many different types of people who are members at Steve Hoffman Forums, with many different tastes in music, hardware, etc. One of the primary goals of our cyber community is to foster an intelligent, enjoyable, and civil exchange of thoughts and ideas about music and its related topics between our members.
