    Even audio dudes surely want a diversion from the hobby! if all you think about is Hi-Fi 24/7 then something is not quite right, Lucky for us in the UK we have free Doctors that will put folk onto a therapist, worked a treat for me.



    Remember The Clockwork orange movie where Alex agrees to take part in the Ludovico Technique where every time Alex see a clip of Violence it makes him sick! Im the same when i see loonies talking bollox about Hi-Fi, This why i need another section

    So please lighten up and lets keep this forum light hearted and friendly , Just how I like it

    OK said my bit , over and out
    I would tend to agree with Al. Although sometimes when someone has asked for genuine help or guidance going well off topic and taking the pee can be a bit much, but I don't see that happen too much. I had noticed a few had stopped participating which is a shame IMO, its nice to exchange ideas and opinion on hifi and music with others which is mainly why I am here.

    Personally I think the none hifi and music related threads are fine usually, although when contentious topics are raised, generally around politics, religion and other inflammatory subjects then things can get out of hand at times, perhaps this is where moderators should be more active in stopping/removing threads if they think it is becoming controversial, or likely to upset others, otherwise this sort of thing will probably end up turning people off of AOS IMO.

    I don't always get it right but if I see these then I try to ignore them or not contribute to avoid fanning the flames. Yes I know we all have a right to free speech but not at the expense of others, and at the end of the day this is a Forum about HiFi and Music, or have I got it wrong.

    Enjoy your HiFi and Music

    Yes some people need to get a life.
    In my other major pastime of flying a paramotor everyone has an ingrained sense of the ridiculous, hence a good sense of humour.

    After all us humans weren't really meant to fly were we

    Indeed. For me, one of the big differences between here and other hi-fi forums is that our resident geeks also have a REAL LIFE!

    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.

    I do sympathise with Robert's and James' concerns, but I like to think there's room for other topics (well, with 90% of my posts being on Abstract Chat I would say that). Thing is, despite my interest in things hifi, I'm too clumsy and too thick to make any worthwhile contributions on a regular basis. Can usually hold my own with music side though.

    I will say though, if you'd rather read about valve rolling than bowel movements (and you really should), then get posting about valve rolling - otherwise you've only yourself to blame

    Perhaps the contentious topics could be moved to a sub forum where those so inclined can bicker to their hearts' content. Call it "Is this the right room for an argument?" Then leave them to it.

    My favourite posters were that bird rubbing her bum with a tennis ball, and Farrah Fawcett with her nipples

    Oh no! That's another thread I've ruined
