Oh really, publish your latest design and see what happens
Sorry to sound cynical, there are some good guys here, I think there is a woman or two floating around. Kinda explains why its ok for hifi stores to advertise in magazines using a girl a bikini.

LOL! Well it just seems like as I'm reading threads, and posting my own, the responses have been nice I guess I'm missing the bad ones.

I think the forum is TOO polite, in that it allows extraordinarily bad English, written in awful text-speak, yet rebukes those members who point it out. Manners, courtesy and etiquette are those things that should be used but not at the expense of directness and honesty. In this respect, manners and courtesy are demonstrated by using proper English rather than the rudeness of lazy language.

I think there are too many forum members with extremely "thin skin" who seem to live to take as much offense as they can from very innocuous language.

AND, as Luke says, post a circuit and watch civility evaporate (but it will be polite discourtesy).

The forum is perhaps a bit more polite than it used to be, because the moderators are now clamping down on personal attacks more than they did. At least, that is my perception. I still find it 'robust' when compared to a British site such as the UK vintage wireless forum. Maybe a cultural result of US free speech vs UK libel laws?

Debates on here can quickly get heated when certain subjects come up (e.g. cables, audibility of low level distortion) or when people think they can settle a matter by quoting a 'guru' (including themselves!).
