    I had not realised that quite a few 'had left' as I dont engage that fully with the forum,as I try not to get too enthused by things (so that I will not spend a shit load of stuff that I wonder wether it works or not !!)

    I dont write anything great as posts go, so my thoughts are that this is still a great place to engage with others ,and the day I get embroiled in an arguement about global warming or religion or politics , is a day too soon !!

    I do frequent Audiokharma a bit ,mainly because those cousins of ours across the pond ,are just another breed ,and they make me smile and its a great resource too !!

    I’d wondered why some members weren’t posting as much. As I hadn’t followed the more contentious non hifi related threads closely I hadn’t realised that there had been disagreement of the order described above. In the absence of an explanation I had come up with my own theory which was hifi related. This was related to the rise of digital playback and the average age of members. I wondered whether the discovery of almost plug and play digital, streaming etc. solutions and the fact that as people get older their enthusiasm for ‘faffing’ diminishes might be a reason. Younger people go straight into digital and the fashionable vinyl hipsters are probably not going to get into analogue to the levels of the past. There are endless tweeks to keep you occupied with analogue, not so much digital. I think some tried to, sort of, crossover the two. People advocating vibration isolation for even digital playback, surely just a hangover from vinyl with some companies trying to extend their lives? As people get older they are also probably getting to the point where ‘ endgame’ purchases have happened and passionate interactions with forums happens less. I suppose if other forums are buzzing it would disprove my idea. Are they?i

    Ahhh blow it out your ass, Al, don't tell me what to do!!!! Kidding, kidding! This is a great place to pop in on, while I may not contribute much-as shown by my current post here, I still lurk and enjoy the banter. I think much is taken way too seriously these days(Not speaking for AOS in that comment, but more of a general take on many forums), hifi and music is supposed to be fun, at least I thought it was anyway!

    I don’t think it helps with moderators that jump on humour that they might not understand. Then make personal attacks on contributors abilities.

    Then another moderator jumps in and suggests that humour is confined to certain dates on the forum, sorry I missed that “sticky”.

    When members see such actions they may be less inclined to post and possibly ridiculed.

    I believe that when members of the forum have not been in a position exposed to the etiquette of the written word, although their comments are valid they may not have the knowledge of how to respond or contribute.

    If members consider that AoS is a forum that should only discuss “hi-fi” and nothing else, then I feel sad, but I feel sure that other forums may be more suited to their needs.

    I’ve learned a lot on here and I will remain grateful.

    Gary

    Problems with some people is they do not have a sense of Humour, Take tings way to seriously, Passion is one thing, obsession is another. Some people do not see banter or having a laugh viable, they dont even want to see off topic taking preference or even off topic at all.. they feel that it gets in the way of their precious little hobby.

    I really try not to get involved in political discussions on the internet these days. We live in divisive times and it is too easy to fall out with people who you would otherwise get along with.

    I much prefer hifi forums to be about music and hifi, with other matter only being discussed if they are not too contentious.
