    After I posted my honest opinion in Schiit Aegir thread some time ago (actually quite some time ago, this offensive was quite effective from me not bothering to continue trying) I have soon started experiencing that the "experience" when I was/am logged in here became a bit problematic:
    1. pages are getting loaded extremely slow (logged-out = 1-2s, logged-in = ~20 seconds), and in 80% times it would never load up
    2. related to the point above I would get a blank page or more likely an altered URL
    https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/www.pornhub.com
    and 404 error, it looks like this (I am linking an image as I guess it will take me at least 3 tries to be able to post this post):
    https://i.imgur.com/GmcEFiB.png .

    I tried to use the "contact" form at the bottom of the page twice and no one has ever got back to me (I am not sure if I was surprised by that).
    I then tried, just in case, different browsers, I tried it with JS blocked, it looks it is related to 1st party cookies or somehow linked to my account without doing it through JS.

    So, I will not try to raise allegations, but I think someone went a bit too far and I would like to ask in a nice and polite way to turn this, as we would say in our language, "kurvítko", off.

    Thanks.

    And to add, it took actually 6 or so tries to post this, usually attempting creating the thread resulted in this error

    (I guess it will take that much to send this reply too...)

    Is the problem repeatable if you log in from a different computer or phone?

    I will say that the first thing that came to mind for your pornhub problem is that, at some point in the past, both URLs might have, somehow, been pasted into the address bar in that exact sequence, so every time you attempt to access SBAF the browser "autocompletes" to the "full" URL. It's happened to me a few times.

    Wouldn't know what else might be causing that oddly specific problem.

    As for the slow load times, no problem on my end of the globe. Seconding @Metro's question, could be your device or maybe ISP.

    Any device I try to log in from results in the very same results. This is happening only here on SBAF, and only when logged in with this very account. I have created a new account to try it and it works just fine, no problems whatsoever.

    Kinda weird if a mod actually took time to do this.

    You did not post an honest opinion about the Aegir in the Aegir thread. You demanded that since I might have an "in" to Jason at Schiit, that I request that Schiit implement a switch between headphone and line outputs.

    This was problematic in several ways:
    1. Your posts had nothing to do with the Aegir.
    2. Aegir is a speaker power amp, therefore your request was not applicable and rather out of place.
    3. It's a bit presumptuous and rude that you think I can tell Jason what to do.
    4. @zerodeefex banned you for two days. It was been my experience that if he bans you or gives you a dumb title, it's a sign that you are going a to be a bad fit at SBAF.

    Look, I am not a native speaker, but I think I have shown enough of a sarcasm in that post, there was no "demanding", it was merely a sarcasm, that try something else, next time. Generation is moving forward, it is not all filled with old schoolers who lived in the audio era of yesterday ready and able to appreciate 20W per channel Class A speaker amp for 800$ and calling it an unmatched value. Nowadays we look towards stuff like Emotiva, reading Amirm's reviews of speaker amps to comprehend the performance of speaker amps and that how shitty they can be, regardless the price point.

    Thus why I added, that I am really looking forward what we will see based on Vidar (I say Vidar as it is so long since I remembered all their code-names and I cannot recall what contraption is implemented in Vidar). And output switch, but honestly, if I recall correctly, one of the latest Schiit Happened chapters was about what could Ragnarok 2 be and there...unbelievably I saw the very same magical combination of words - output and switch. It is much more than a relevant thing for any device with multiple outputs (where it is assumed one will use multiple outputs and having it switched automatically may not be the best idea).

    20W per channel...twenty watts per each channel...twenty...we cannot even try to justify it with a sound quality as nowadays anything can sound great and the best, not only 800$ "beyond the Class A" 20WPC amp.

    But you know what? If by any chance one day we can get sales statistics for Aegir (I am sure we will see it mentioned in Schiit Happened) and Aegir is anything but a bit better selling than original Loki, then I will be glad to admit I am one deluded son of a bitch. Until then, I think only good from this is the experience for Jason and team.


    Oh, oh, and back to the topic of this thread, shall I assume what is happening is his doing? Someone had to do it and now I am merely looking for the answer who did this and can it be disabled? If not, say it.

    Looks like you will have to apply to The Rehabilitation Committee.

    You did read this right? https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/what-is-sbaf-10-articles-for-behavior.5555/

    I'm not sure if SBAF is the best place for sarcasm, especially if you are new and not a native English speaker. Heck, even long time members known for their comedic grumpiness such as @jexby get taken too seriously by other long time members.

    Against my better judgment, you've been given a second chance. Please don't make me regret this.

    I changed my mind. I think there is something wrong with you in terms of boundaries and your grand sense of entitlement, especially considering your lack of understanding the use cases of low powered Class A amps. I don't think you would be a good fit here.

    Ah well... I guess the guy was trying. It might be a tough thing for some to fit in here; it might be an impossible thing for those that don't to understand why. But maybe that's the definition of not fitting in.

    Oh my. Why did I even venture into this thread ?

    Edit: wrote in a flow without realising this bumps the thread up. Any way to delete it?
