Default It's too damn quiet!

It's boring here lately. Not much exciting happening. No brawls, no scuffles. Not even any halfway decent build threads happening (other than my own, of course )
I've tried to stir things up one or two times but it goes nowhere. Either I've lost my ability to deeply annoy my fellow man or I've somehow acquired a level of respectability! Do I intimidate the potential adversary into just walking away?
If so, that stinks! I may need to join another forum to start over again - no one takes guff from the new guy.

You could go over to the AudioAsylum and be entertained by the lunatics there!
Plenty of bickering there lately, especially in the "Tweakers" forum..

If you do the posse will follow. No guarantees my friend. I think you need to contribute to the food thread.

Tweakers, eh? As a youngster, I learned it's a sin to pick on the special needs students. Just leave 'em be, son.

Hmmm, I'm still pished at you for 86ing some of my best posts a while ago...

That's the root of the problem - I do some extra special work, devising a deadly incendiary charge, plant it without setting it off and while my frakking back is turned, you or another member of the elite 'MODERATOR' squad defuse it and toss it into the trash!!!

The only thing I did to your best posts was to reply to them. I can't imagine what happened to the others. Let me ask in the backroom.

Wanna stir stuff up? I'd suggest starting a "What's wrong with the modern <component name>" thread. For highest annoyance factor, make your reasoning completely plausible, yet subtly wrong.

I have lots more info in my e-booklet "How To Troll" available for just a small PayPal payment...

Has SWMBO taken you to the vet recently?
...and you can't quite remember what happened next?

actually I do see more members building amps
tube amp forum have been a bit slow, but seems increasingly active
more focus on practical issues, rather than theoretical ones
also a lot more info on how to get parts etc
there's definately more activity in those areas
with a whole new generation "storming" in, and "us" getting older, things change, ofcourse

well, if you look at half a glas of water, or beer
to some its half full, and to others its half empty
