I realized that it is not the place to learn and share knowledge and experience. Knowledgeable, experienced, wise people unfortunately don't want to be moderators.

As someone who is a complete novice in the electronic field (prefer 460v and above) I lurk around the edges of these forums and am totally amazed at the the depth of knowledge provided and the willingness of people to share it.

Unfortunately, in these days of instant gratification it seems that some are unable to appreciate, let alone respect, the knowledge accumulated by people who have put in the time and effort to be in a position to offer advice.

It would appear that some folk seek confirmation of their beliefs and dismiss answers that contravene them.

@wavebourn: Wise, knowledgeable, and experienced people are always valued here as members- very much including you, whom I very much respect greatly and very much like personally. But... we all have to follow the rules, even the moderators. I've certainly had some of my posts pulled by other mods when I paid insufficient attention to the rules, but that's part of what it takes to keep a civilized community.

SY, you are a moderator too, but as you know exceptions confirm the rule.

See you all in non-virtual reality!

Hi Anatolyi,

Good to see you back; please stay
We had our arguments, but life was more boring here without you

Yeah, I miss him too although I understand his reasons for leaving. He's not the first one that leaves because of some clash with a mod and, certainly, he won't be the last. In a way this forum is leveled by moderators so everybody can be protected against verbal aggression. Problem is, if you say things as they are without any type of sugar coating it's considered here as verbal aggression. Best way is to use subtleties that generally pass over or under the mod's radar. In other words, use their limitations to your own advantage. Oh God, I think I've talked too much.

Hi Anatoliy
I hope everything is well.

**** happends all the time.

What I find annoying is when you try to correct somebody that you thought was smart, then instead of admitting that they were wrong and thank you for correcting them puts on a trench coat, dig a trench, telling you that you are wrong (and an idiot) and continue to preach their (wrong) statements.

That's annoying, what should you do?
I ignore them.

BTW: it seems like it's a lot of members that are only looking for making trouble , especially to knowledgeable people. ( as an example have a look at the idiots that irritated Bruno), (in my opinion it's a disaster that the mods didn't stop them)

Cheers
Stein

Welcome back, Wavebourn.

Something I am learning is that even the English-speaking nations interpret some remarks quite differently, and on here we have many other people too. One person's innocent remark could be someone else's strong statement and look like an insult to a third person. This makes life difficult for the mods, so we can't expect perfection from them. They give up their time and do their best.

We also need to remember that technophiles like us don't always have the best social skills. I remember some years ago reading an article in New Scientist which was exploring the idea that Einstein may have been autistic. They gave 8 signs; I had, in some measure, 7 of them! Not unusual for a physicist, especially one with engineers for both grandfathers (a known risk factor!). Not an excuse for bad behaviour, but perhaps an explanation? To use a football (soccer) analogy, we need to tackle the ball not the man.

And actually this forum is pretty well behaved. Try a motorcycle or car forum some time. Even Audio Asylum is a rough neighborhood compared to this luxury spot.
