My new speakers and the POLK Lynch Mob

I've been Lynched--were you part of The Polk Lynch Mob?

I started a thread that apparently people didn't like.
It was a serious discussion that was meant to discuss play back.
Some people didn't like it and told me how Smart they were
and how Stupid I am.

Sometimes it's just best to let people show their own ignorance.
Did you show yours?

Many of you who read the thread still do not know what
I was saying so you joined in The Lynch Mob.

So far you're a Great--Open Minded--Group of People---NOT.
You have a forum here and when someone wants to talk serious
audio that you don"t understand or like--What do you do?

    Agree. Like this thread for example.

    You're doing a great job!
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    So not being able to understand an unarticulated concept means you're close minded?

    Hello WVHillbilly. I didn't see your introduction to the forum, nor have I seen your conversations thus far with the members of this forum. I have been a member of this board for some time now and I have developed friendships that will last my lifetime.

    It's not that hard to have a cordial conversation with the members of this board. Take a look at the responses this new member got on his introductory post;

    http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/176709/hello-all-finally-joining-the-polk-family#latest

    A life lesson I'm quite sure you have heard before is, "You reap what you sow".

    With that said, can you see the difference between this gentleman's introduction and responses versus your introduction and interaction with the same folks? If you can't see the difference, then I can not help you. If you can, then I would suggest to man up, apologize and ask to "restart" the relationship. Be the better man you know you can be if you wish to extract the vast amount of knowledge this board has to offer.

    The choice is yours.

    Respectfully,

    Tom

    I've found that repeated tugging of the rope is pretty effective.

    Isn't the term "lynch mob" considered racist? He should be promptly banned from the forum IMHO....
