Next, I am bothered by people with commercial interest that are trying to look like innocent DIYers.

It would be nice. Our hardware and software costs alone are going to be upwards of $10k this year. Scott, I do very much appreciate your contribution towards our costs this year. I hope we can improve the page load speeds considerably in the next few months, and get onto new hardware, well before we hit vBulletin's MySQL "big board" performance issues which start in earnest once a forum gets to about 2,500,000 posts. But that's a discussion for another thread.

FYI the "donation star" is purely for donations, it doesn't appear for those who have purchased advertising or those who have contributed financially in other ways, such as sponsoring a commercial sector forum. There is currently no way to see that. In the very near future we'll have other icons to represent the other ways people contribute to diyAudio (financial and otherwise).

Thank you for your assistance in keeping this thread on topic.

Jason, I figured that in retrospect. I also understand the difficulties on this matter, but I have lots of unfond memories. It would be easier if the DIY community modeled itself off of the FSF.

I can see the reason why global moderators should not be ignored, but not someone who is on a moderator list because of having his own forum. Is this a temporary glitch, or the actual intent of how the forum should work?
This is still a problem.
I guess that Andy_C and myself is trying to put the same person on the ignore list.
I’m getting the same message.
"Sorry XXXX is a moderator/admin and you are not allowed to ignore him or her."

And may I also ask why Andy_C is banned?

Cheers

No you don't. How dare you challenge the moderation policies?

OH no! Andy_C is one of the most valuable members of this whole forum. How can we ban someone with such real knowledge and let so many of the idiotic threads continue unabated? Moderators please reconsider this!!!!!

Steve.

It does look like Andy_C IS still with us....perhaps Andy is limited in some fashion..looks like he is "allowed" to write in here........maybe only in a 'response mode' & cannot initiate threads.
His public profile still contains info, perhaps derogatory as a (Paraphrasing here) 'Audio snake oil huckster'.
So all is not lost....Andy can read us all...perhaps he can be rehabilitated?

Moderator: Signal to noise interpreter. .............sweet.

To those that preach incorrect theories of electronics....well a few rounds with exploding capacitors will have those being taught, going elsewhere for advice.

Echoed.
I learned a LOT from him, and not the kind of bunk that the other "experts" like to teach around here.
Seems the moderators focus here is NOT to keep members that actually know what they are talking about, but just maintain the peace - if you have an opinion, you better hold onto it. Everyone is expendable.
I think it's a shame.
