    I have a shit load of papers to grade, and a new piece of shit software system to learn. I am taking a short break. See you all sometime soon. Hope all this gets resolved.

    It never entered my mind that PMing @Marvey with personal questions/problems was an option. Looks like I missed the window on that. ;)

    Our captain has a life too. PMs can invade one's private life. Guess what happened?

    P.S. The song is pretty catchy.

    Let's avoid posting new product announcements unless we actually have information that is not yet public.

    We are not a news outlet and we don't need to be the first to have product speculation threads. Every other person here reads HF, gets Massdrop e-mails, and all have Internet access.

    Being first and having no substantive information is the domain of HF and Jude. Just leave that to them. We should want no part of this. This only increases noise and brings shame to the Empire.

    Going to keep ironing the point home about noise.

    seething in anger.png

    I try not to think about this...because it makes me SEETHE IN ANGER. I had a post already written up waiting for the press embargo to lift. Can't even get a word in within a hour of the lift. The angrier I get, the more unstable I get. Seriously, I got one f***ing day, one f***ing day of decently low noise levels before this. And please, DO NOT PM me with an apology. I have no time for this. I will not accept your apology. Just hang your head in shame and allow me to forget.

    Use Personal Profile Posts if you have something dumb to say or a product announcement. Don't post.

    Multi-threaded chatbox equivalent. Brilliant. Always hated chat boxes with six topics (or one uninteresting topic) running at once.

    Good for dumb stuff. Good for discussing intelligent stuff. Win-Win. Maybe needs a more obvious name for the newcomers and slower-witted among us.

    Excuse me... I'm off to see if there is any update on @atomicbob's cat's health.

    In a thousand years, internet archaeologists will dig up this site and wonder why ancient Amerizoids let their fascination with free speech get so out of hand as to require constant policing, but they won't express it. @atomicbob's immortal cat has that shit locked down.

    Oh, what was the topic again? Right. Noise.

    Seriously, you should make a wiki out of some of the info here.

    Edit:
    "a44100Hz dislikes this." Cat hating communist.

    Wouldn't it help if you made this site at least temporarily invite-only? Or restrict so that Randos can't start new threads before a certain amount of time has passed or they could get granted permissions by proving themselves worthy (lol). That way people who really want to post here would probably take the time to figure out how this site works resulting in better overall S/N ratio.

    Marv's taking a vacation. Next ban is Wilson for the rest of the month for noise. Little to no useful content and tons to say.

    I will probably be banning a few folks. Also, those of you trolling for the biggest reaction, please stop.

    when a site grows rapidly it's hard for a culture to be maintained which is why there are threads like this one reminding newcomers to look around and absorb the culture and goals before they start posting shipping updates and random content-less shit. the problem is that it's unclear whether these threads are read before any posting happens.

    Extended to this month and October. Dick mode still on - the great thing is that I haven't needed to use it. Just wanted to remind people that I will still destroy* people who bring up the same ol' nonsense (the need for triple-quadruple blind tests, how FR and distortion tell us everything we need to know, how 5" woofers are just as good as 15" woofers for bass, how our sonic memory only last 0.2323 microseconds, etc.)

    *Just pointless arguing the same things over and over. I find that destroying people is just easier. It's like arguing whether God exists or not. It's like, just begone if you don't agree.
