    Classic TSA fucking with our stuff and stealing shit. I can't count the number of times that I've heard of friends and family opening their suitcases after the flight and having everything in there thrown around and messed with.

    Ah, good ol' TSA searches. Plenty of people I know have lost camera stuff to them or baggage handlers. Dad lost like $1000 worth of camera stuff once, that was a bit of a downer on a Hawaii vacation.

    I especially would not trust LAX TSA bag searchers. Employment program for the dregs of El Lay.

    I experienced the same thing in Africa once, over there it was known as airport theft.

    The reason I'm not into CD transports? I had multiple hundred CDs stolen from baggage several years ago. It completely obliterated my collection and now I only have a few dozen CDs.

    You mean when someone called a manufacturer SCREAMING his head off saying he'd pull them from the site if a particular employee didn't personally apologize to him? Screaming so loud multiple people in the office could hear it?

    Reminds me of that argument I had with him on reddit where he was getting incredibly snarky and quite obviously offended/angry at me. He, in fact, opened his account from three years ago to argue with me: https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones..._site_up_for_the_he1000_now/cqcvay1?context=3

    Rereading it, I didn't realize how sarcastic and dickish he was acting during the whole "debate."

    That sucks about the theft. Fuckin' @ssholes. And what happened with the firing?
    I started my Headphone hobby with Head-fi, but damn! People getting fired n shit...
    About Dr. Fang Bian-I don't know if tubes got stolen from him or they were forgotten, but Justin Weber from ampsandsound hooked him up with his own personal supply from home for the Shangri-La demo.

    Jesus, that's generous. If they were legit WE 300B's, that a lot of expensive stuff to put on the line in someone else's amp prototype.

    @PacoTaco - Dayum, that was some good stuff to read from you. Your directness was rather nice to see, cutting straight through the bullshit.

    Yah, I was surprised I wasn't banned from Head-Fi. Especially after trashing the Alpha Primes a couple weeks prior when it was at its peak of hype.

    Luckily they were just the 12AU7 driver tubes, which got misplaced during shipping. Jude was going to drive up to someone to pick up spare tubes cause Schiit and Woo didn't have any spares, and Justin was listening and literally said, "I can go home and bring you a bunch from my stash."

    It was a premature reaction from my side, will delete that. I just react strongly on humiliating, there is not a single person on earth who has the rights to threat any other person like shit. But I assume it's pretty regular thing, which is extremly sad IMO.

    Knowledge that it was a community loaner perhaps, and that no single "individual" would be hurt. Who knows, it's like Marv said. You can justify all sorts of shit with a convoluted logical path that gets away from basic human decency.

    Plankton is sitting above both of my shoulders. I have an HD800 after all :D

    Thanks man. I actually had a tiny bit of respect for him actually arguing with me, but...well, he kind of ruined that with his latest thing. Jude's behavior has always rubbed me the wrong way. The same way Zeos has started rubbing me the wrong way lately.
