This thread is unique on the forum, I'm sure everyone knows what I mean, and it includes his name, so frankly, what do you expect?

Hi everybody! Thought it might be useful to lighten the conversation a bit. I really don't know if Joe is promoting something useful or not, but I think he has the right to express his opinion without being criticized by others. Dr. Thiele is a known in audio speaker design circles, and JN's attitude even about his existence, without even Googling his name, is an insult to Joe and everyone else. Let's keep it professional, when it comes to criticism. For example, I am not a liar, in fact I would never knowingly lie on this thread. What would be the point? JN calls me one, on a regular basis. Why? Like the president, he finds that dismissing people who do not agree with him, and calling them liars, works for his argument. But his accusations have no foundation, it is just a way of trying to win an argument that has been done for centuries. Of course, attacking someones character and education is another way. You know, it gets old, after awhile.

Cargo cult science is often to find in pseudo-objectionistic groups that believe to know the "TRUTH" .

Btw, i donīt know what Feynmans stance on it was, but i still believe discussions would/could be much more productive if the posters were less interested in ridiculing other members.

Yeah, see my post above.

What you stated contradicts one end to other by longing the right to express for one but not the other. If Joe has such right (which he does), then so do others (to express their criticism).

Wait, so you want the criticism to come through as long as it is professional?

In the light of lightening the conversation a bit, "It's not a lie... if you believe it." (George Costanza, Seinfeld Show).

Loudspeaker cable settling time, wonder why I have never noticed the problem? Crosstalk, EMI pickup, power loss, even frequency tilt. Wonder what I haven't been checking? Maybe my cables are not long enough as to where it would matter?

I don't think this is a "right" in any form of media: spoken, written, video, you name it, except perhaps for the NK supreme leader and the Pope.

Frequency tilt? That's new to me. Is this something about using a leveler to set up the cables?
I have one. Maybe I ...
