they still think their opinion should be listened to.
Hi prufrock - After reading, and removing, your post about Scientology and Scientologists it's very obvious you have a major axe to grind with many people who think differently than you. Your goal of saving newbies from purchasing a product you don't like or don't believe in is the identical front 99% of people in your shoes hide behind. I believe Hydrogen Audio is the perfect place for you to express yourself, minus the religious statements. I always encourage opposing views here at CA. But your abrasive argumentative tone and facade of saving people from themselves (who likely don't want to be "saved") is getting old. Everything discussed in this thread has been discussed countless times in other threads here on CA and dozens of other sites. No new ground has been covered in this very strangely titled thread. Covering new ground isn't a prerequisite for continuing threads here at CA but when your goal is to talk newbies into believing what you believe purhaps you should mention items that they haven't read several times. There is no way a newbie can read this thread and glean anything helpful. It's much more likely you've just rallied your base and vice versa. Your idea to write a blog summary of this could be helpful. But, as all of the ideas and beliefs discussed here have been discussed many many times, you could have used Google to find all this information and all the old arguments in less than 0.002 seconds. If you're here at CA to contribute or learn something I encourage you to stay and help grow this wonderful community dedicated to our wonderful hobby. If your motives are antithetical to contributing and learning you can move on to another site.
Regardless of what anyone might think of CA, I fail to see why one should post rather immature messages on this forum, even though the local crowd might nod their heads in agreement.

You can post anything you like when everyone agrees with you.
I was dumped from Steve Hoffman forum for being too skeptical about Barry Diament and his 'audiophile' products.
Who are the sponsors here?
JJZolx takes another opportunity to whine about HA in a way that is just vague enough that no actual argument need be advanced.
Audioquest advertise on CA. If you go to the CA C.A.S.H list ( Hardware) you find links to Hardware sites and reviews. Nothing on cables though. If you need to find out anything regarding them, you ask on the forum. Fortunately there are plenty there only too willing to help you in this regard.Who are the sponsors here?
Scary more so given that quite a few of look like professional types. Doctors, lawyers, academics etc.
That place is a living breathing example of how intelligence/privilege alone doesn't keep you safe from woolly thinking. The status thing seems to encourage intellectual arrogance that makes them even more susceptible.
This prufrock is a quite funny guy , posting at hydrogenaudio that he was been banned at computer audiophile,and posting at computer audiophile he was banned at hydrogenaudio.Just a screenshot, in case the guy decide to edit his post meanwhile http://i50.tinypic.com/m7s1t3.jpgAnd the link to the post:http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f8-gener...html#post166216So, who is laughing now ?
Also, notice he's asking if we're a bunch of girlie men, which really, I don't see how that would matter.
Here is some sample text from the 'Listening Tests' subforum:"all the usual bull those of the golden ear persuasion come up with"
The girlie- men was just a poke at that great Actor and Statesman, Arnold Schwarzwartenegger. I am no homophobe.
