there is one ..... its called the "chill zone"

Since the forum upgrade, the 'Chill Room" is no longer functional as it should be. Hence the decision to start with a 3-day ban.

The problem is we need to remember to undo the ban after the specified period, and because the mods are so busy here, they tend to forget to undo the ban.  :roll:

I must say, I use the forum as my "Happy Place" when I settle down to listen to music. I'm more into playing those long forgotten tunes and exploring a few of the newer ones and looking at how the guys have set up their systems to get the best stage etc. Cables and kit threads etc I will look at, but very seldom comment on and often find it amusing at the amount of energy and listening time wasted by arguing their merits / demerits :)

What I have noticed recently is that my reading time on the forum has dropped a lot due to the above posted issues. I'm not clued up on artist histories etc so I don't comment much on what I'm listening to ....I just maar listen :)

Was a nice place to share niceties... now it feels like I am with my ex again...
Emotions are high, retort on every conversation and urinating contest.

Thanks guys, I have too much going on my life to get primary school playground bickering on what used to be an informative forum.

back at a much later time.

But, this happens on ALL forums that I am a member of, unfortunately. Males and their eggo's ;) Just shrug it off... I must say this forum is better in this regard to many other forums as I have seen much less urinating contests here than say on Gunsite. There you can make just one spelling mistake and the thread turns sour :sd:

It has calmed down.. think it was some young bulls whose urine is not effective in marking their territory in real life, and have to practice here.

^^lol.  You are so spot on Mervin. I have had the privilege of meeting/talking to many a forum member (new and old) and have to say, often the online persona does not relate to the real person AT ALL, especially if the online persona is in idi@t :ROFLMAO:.    There is of course a few exceptions....  ;) but perfect gentleman for the most part.
