    I think that sums up club Polk in general. If it's not audio,
    We're just amusing ourselves. Try not to take us too
    seriously. This isn't Twitter.

    So Just recently saw I have 207 "lol's".....Reviewed though them quickly and found 95% or more are from F1nut??

    Why do you give a ****?
    Dude seems to have a Stalker Mentality, or some kind of issue. Wow

    Possibly, do you believe it's possible to infer that from the number of LoL's?
    Maybe time for another Hobby.

    Wait what? Too many LoL's? Are you at all serious that you would allow one individual on an internet forum to determine your hobbies?
    Polk audio speakers and Internet Stalker do not usually go together well......

    What speakers go good with internet stalking?

    It’s Sunday, Snowing, Coffee is Hott, and I’m bored so here’s my take on this, mostly for K_M, but anybody who’s bitched about F1Nut. Myself included.

    But first, why the hell do all you people care about your badges?

    TL;DR:
    F1Nut: He comes across as a dick. Take him or leave him. Just my perceptions. Grateful for what he does do. Think he could do the rest a lot better. Or have better success on Facebook.

    F1Nut Is simultaneously one of the biggest lurkers and **** posters on this site. Most of what I read from his 42,000+ posts since I’ve been around is one or two sentences telling someone how they’re wrong with little to (usually) no information how they might change it. I generally don’t view him as a positive contributor to the forums, and often find him engaging in adolescent arguments with those he would claim are below his intelligence and experience. Why? I don’t know. Nothing better to do I guess? After 42,000 posts boredom has set in and being the oldest troll under the bridge his last entertainment? I don’t know, but his is a familiar pattern I’ve seen repeated on multiple forums. He’s that established voice who’s been around forever, can be a pain in the ****, and every now and then is extremely helpful. Demo program anyone?

    It’s my perception the site has three camps of members; those who like him, those who don’t, and those who don’t know who he his. In different words, a very polarizing online persona who puts a bad taste in newer members mouths from the start. Stating from personal experience and observation.

    This is all, of course just my perception based on threads I’ve read or participated in, and yes I’ve butted heads with him before. I certainly haven’t seen everything. Other members seem to hold him in high regard and say he his helpful. Oddly enough I often find those same members quite helpful to individuals and the site as a whole. I can’t always say that about F1Nut, but people I respect on the site seem to respect him. Therefore aside of a ****, grating, ornery, cold impersonal and irritation online persona I tolerate him. Passive ignore his bait posts and focus on what you really need which I suspect is not wasting time on someone who’s not getting you what you need. Unless you need to eat some troll bait, go for it. :D

    I don’t believe you need to like someone to appreciate what they do. Thanks for the L200 demo program and other things you’ve done for the forums. Your online personality blows some large four legged mammalian genitals but I’m sure like most of us you’re quite different in person. Final words of the rant, like your mother said if you can’t say something nice, don’t say it; If you can’t post something positive or helpful, don’t. Remember, telling someone they’re wrong without explaining why does them absolutely no good. May I suggest a simple ‘bump’ instead of a snarky comment? After all, this isn’t Facebook. :D

    See......That was a funny (something you could laugh at) comment and up to now I would have given you a LOL for a witty remark. Should we still do that?

    But now (and knowing LOL is an insult) by giving you one people would think I disagree with your comment and like Bose. Then I would get LOL'd by others!


    This is way too confusing......

    They need to add more specific items to click on at the bottom of people's posts. Yes, I think your post is Insightful, or I Agree with you, Like what you said, or think what you posted is genuinely funny, aka LOL. They're all too positive, meant to keep the warm and fuzzy feeling of the Forum going. This is prompting people to just post snarky things in a post of their own.

    Maybe start with Dislike, or if necessary, take it to Kumbaya-land and simply have Disagree? Or maybe a Confused tag, like WTF are you really thinking here? It's better than leaving others to figure out what you really mean, and posting threads about how disrespectful people are (LOL)...
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    @Inspector 24 Being as we were all "newer members" at some point, I disagree with your observation stating "In different words, a very polarizing online persona who puts a bad taste in newer members mouths from the start. Stating from personal experience and observation."

    You are applying your "personal experience and observation" to all newer members, and deciding their opinion for them. It has been years since I was a newer member, but I never thought of F1Nut as leaving a bad taste in my mouth from the start. I believe you would find that to be true from a majority of the people on the forum. The bad taste in peoples' mouths that does exist, is a small minority of people who dislike F1Nut. A vast majority of people on the forum (newer and who have been here for years) find F1Nut to be helpful and a good guy.

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Completely disagree. A lot have left the forum or never post based on what a jerk he is. Many who end up staying on the forum, (this is a VERY tiny forum) ARE in fact the few that can tolerate him, or have him on ignore, Or kiss his arse and act silly also.

    Sure you are one of the same guys that join in with the same childish crap he does, so of course you like him.

    You are not nearly in the same level of jerkdom as he is, but you MUST know the forum has like about a dozen jerks that all jump in and try to gang up on people right??

    Or are you oblivious to the truth?

    Too bad you are too weak and afraid to say Anything to F1nut, when he posts crap he does, and bashes people in the forum.

    You are basically condoning the same crap he does.
    Why not call him out when he posts tons of crap or bashes people.

    Too entertaining for you, or too much a coward?
    Or do you simply condone bad behavour?

    Finally someone willing to call it as most see it.

    As I said, helpful at times, but 42,000 posts and 90% or more are arguing, trolling, and bashing people.

    Why are the rest of you so afraid to be honest?

    I see you are replying on my thread, but again you are on IGNORE> I am no longer reading ANYTHING you Post./
    Something several on the forum told me to do a long time ago.
    I was told you are the forum Troll/Jerk, I tried to give you a chance but found that everyone was right about you.

    Please read what Inspector 24 wrote.
    Sadly it agrees with what many have been telling me privately on the forum for the last few years.
    Your days of trolling me are over. Sorry, move on to someone else.
