    That sentiment is shared by anyone who has ever lived in Irvine at any point in their life.

    Love the "Lawnmower Parent" tag - have totally seen it in real life, unfortunately for their kids who will be having a rude awakening when they finally enter the 'long-grass' of real life.

    Best phrase I have on this (and apologize to those who have seen this from me before) is that it's impossible to raise your kids to be problem solvers if you never let there be any problems for them to solve.

    I don't think that Googling somebody's username really rises to the level of doxxing...if you can't even be bothered to think of a new username when you try to move past trolling, you're probably not putting much effort into reforming your ways.

    I’ve been “reading” this person’s shit on discord forums for several weeks... the moment I saw the massdrop pic and their location I knew it was them. Everyday they’re just spewing bile ... cutting this one off quickly was wise... or maybe they should have gotten their own thread for a while? :D

    I didn't even go that far. Just a few posts from Massdrop and HF that were sent to me by other people.

    The only person I've ever researched was @shafter, @shifter, @Shaffer, or whatever. But that dude was seriously creepy like telling Craig at EC that he got into an online argument with me about OTL amps and inviting him to join some weird ass Facebook tube amp masturbatory club to continue further debate.

    The dude just wouldn't let up, and it got mind of personal, so I dug up his info and called him out by his first name and city of residence to get rid of him. I didn't really even dox him.

    Time spent in the art of dick-fu is never wasted, my friend, for at its heart it is a journey into the human condition.

    For whom does the dick troll? It trolls for thee.

    I am a great believer in freedom of speech and association. Nor am I a bigot; some of my best friends are progressives. I cannot help feeling though that this esteemed and learned site rushed to judgement to its own detriment. My view is that D2Girls is almost certainly a dick with a dick. Nonetheless I ponder: what was accomplished by the rush to banish 'them' (bone to my progressive friends)? Does 'can' (which I completely support) = 'should'? Why be afraid to let a potential pig potentially fry in his own fat? The progressives live in fear of invasions of their safe space. Does SBAF really fear the same way?

    Speaking from my one-time forum-moderator experience, half a dozen one-word posts would have been ample reason to ban, and it would never have gone any further. Mistaking this place for HF is one thing, mistaking it for Twitter or some chat board of a decade or two ago is really another. I'd have hit "them" with zero tolerence.

    A reasonable reply and I thank you for that. I might have waited for him to prove that he had not reformed by way of trolling on here, rather than calling out the impurity of his obfuscations. Still an alternative more proactive response can be justified. It is not my preference for dealing with the potential for redemption, but (as with my status in China) I am a grateful guest here.

    Come on. His behavior here before he was called out should have been, and was, a huge red flag. The correct action was taken.

    Well it sucks that this had to happen but I am gaining a better perspective on how things are being done on this forum space. Seems like you guys are extremely unforgiving of noise. :)

    Actually a little noise is okay. A good joke is most welcome here.

    Thing is, get to know the others a little so you know your audience. A good comedian knows his or her audience well enough to place the joke in the right context/frame for the audience. Lurk a bit, post some music you enjoy.

    P.S. Seriously, post some of the music you like. That helps us to understand you a little bit better regarding audio gear and music recommendations. I love the music threads to discover new things...

    Well I peruse the forums just to see what new gear is up and the impressions that come with it, don't think I am experienced enough to say anything that adds value so I keep my hands off the keyboard.

    You win a "Get out of a hazing from @zerodeefex" card!!! These limited edition cards are quite rare and highly valued by Randos with thin skin.

    Please note: Card ships in 4-6 weeks and has no actual cash value. Not valid in PA, HI, WI or IL. Proposition 65 warning for CA: this offer reeks of hydrogen sulfide and might cause tearing of the eyes. Please keep out of the reach of young children and farm animals.
