So the board is like life. Be an adult and don't break the rules. Otherwise you can expect to talk to a "cop".

The rules are done by common humans, as you or as I; and these, are not necessarily perfect. The rules always are subject to change, mainly in science. If Thomas Alva Edison had not questioned "the rules" of their time, very probably, our houses and cities still would be illuminated with gas lamps.

All the corrupt systems of government in the history; as Hitler, or the Inquisition for example, were protagonists of many innocent deaths and injustices. The doctrine of these systems of government was: Hey man!!!, don't think, don't question, and don't break the rules!!

In this point I believe that Galileo Galilei had been in agreement with me.

Well ..... nothing sticks to teflon so ..... Teflon also withstands higher temperatures and so is preferred over polypropylene moderators.

When mods make decisions about behavior, we take into account the past actions of the member. A new member might get one stern warning , when an established member might get some bin time.

On the other hand, a member that has for years never offended anyone and then makes one intemperate statement probably just gets a stern warning.

It is clear to me that new members often need a bit of time to understand the tone of this forum. Once they do, they either adapt to our "culture", or get punished and/or leave.

We firmly believe the really quite amazing success of the forum is due to the civil tone and respect required of members, and really this is the predominant rule.

Mark,
Yes, absolutely. This board is far more professional and helpful than any other I have seen yet. The amount of knowledge available is astounding. This is due in large part because of the rules and rather high standard of moderation I see here.

This was my original viewpoint and has not changed over the time I have been a member here. I understand there have been trying times, but like a film (poobah) cap, it is self healing. Although we want to make sure the capacity isn't reduced too much.

In the end it is up to the members as a group to behave themselves.

-Chris

Acid Orange Juice,

Welcome, I share your frustration regarding feedback and how it is routinely dismissed. I have learned much though here as to why this came about. Furthermore, I don't think that discussing it will get you kicked out. The feelings against it here are not so prevalent either.

I believe where feedback has been hurt is in its misapplication. You need a lot of bandwidth to use feedback properly. Sandmen embrace feedback for its virtues and the fact that bandwidth comes easily. Tube guys, steer away from it because coupling caps and trannies work to eat bandwidth up.

You will find the masses to be more pragmatic here... some very hardheaded scientists, engineeers, technicians as well that won't listen to "facts" without proof.

I also think alot of the tube guys are very motivated to avoid feedback because when all is said and done... it IS a pretty d_mn fine accomplishment to get 2-3% (or less) distortion without NFB.

I have yet to build a tube amp as an adult... did so when I was a kid... with a recipe. I am waiting to learn what the real difference is between PP and SE is. I have to wait until the speaker cable gods have been appeased though.

Cheers,

Anatech,

To your credit, teflon moderators would have less dieclectic absorption.

Hi poobah,
Mods need to absorb like the rest of us.

Acid Orange Juice,
We tend to go off topic sometimes too. Mostly in fun without chest beating. Many points of view make life interesting for the most part.

-Chris
