    If there is an example of a thread someone posted that's similar to yours on SBAF, that ain't it. The person who posted that thread gave specific examples of things he was looking at, whereas yours is the generic Head-Fi "what is the best?"

    Trust me, I lurked on this forum for a while and I still managed to post noise (to the point I earned my dislikes, yes). And I'm still learning about how not to be a complete degenerate and actually contribute to the forum, so I've not doubt I'll continue to earn some dislikes for a time. I never complained about the dislikes though.

    To be frank, you sound like a contemporary college kid: self-entitled and can't take any criticism without considering it offensive/getting "triggered" (I mean, you literally got 2 dislikes on a forum; that's far from the end of the world).

    Edit: Mods, please shift this to the appropriate thread.

    But we don't want newcomers to stay longer. Heck, we want as few newcomers as possible. There's a reason why the registrations are usually closed.

    This is basically why you fucked up. See the running announcement at the top of the page.

    On SBAF there is a warped democracy. Every senior member is allowed to judge randos and sling mud at them as they see fit, cos randos are born automatically wrong and have to prove themselves right, unless they have proven themselves prior. To be fair, some of the members here can get a bit anal about policing this forums, but if your skin isn't thick enough for the unfair ribbing then you really shouldn't be here.

    Yes. It's because the mods were originally annoyed with how randos like you would make a new thread just to ask a question that has been practically asked before, so they made this subforum to lure you guys to your deaths by communal bashing. The threads that survive are questions that are unique and specific enough to warrant extra attention and discussion. The fact that you can't tell the difference shows that you haven't gained enough experience to start your own thread.

    By the way, don't take the term rando too personally. Despite my title I'm pretty much a rando myself, just one that has managed to hang around for quite a while. Rando basically means "Someone we don't know".

    You are now permanently banned due to attempting to delete your provocative posts. There is a reason why folks reacted to you the way they did. And for polluting the general advice thread with your complaining and whining.

    There are indeed a few advice threads. But most folks use the general advice thread. And you were given plenty of advice. You are not being singled out. I and many folks that have been here for a long time also ask questions in the general advice thread.

    You called old time members of this forum spoiled kids/trolls, dicks, and pricks. I'm not sure where you come from, but in most places this is not how a newcomer behaves when trying to fit in. You called this forum shitty, absurd, and so on. So I'm doing you a favor. Don't let the door hit you on your way out.

    Your stuff, or whatever that's call, stays though.

    You got what you wanted anyway: Advice and your own personal negative SNR thread.

    Holy cow, I only just noticed the Haw Flakes. I haven't seen those things since I was in high school, didn't know they still existed. They are amazing.

    The difference is that @Gruss Gott is cool and are you not. Sometimes people walk into the local pub and just fit in without the regulars even batting an eye.

    Very likely has been before, and came back to be bitter about it. Reminds me a lot of the recent one who prompted the 'this forum is not normal' banner.
