Axe to grind know it alls


Recently I have noticed that there are people who apparently enjoy having controversial posts. One in particular stands out. I have no problem with people expressing different opinions but are they doing this just to get attention? They don’t care what the responders to their posts have to say as only their opinion is the correct one and everyone else is wrong unless they agree with the op which is rare.

I have always looked at the Audiogon forums as a resource to get information and exchange ideas . When the post is a one way street, I think it does little if anything to contribute to the forums so going forward I will just ignore their posts.  Anyone else irritated by these posers?

Thanks for your post....I approve totally your point of view....My best to you....
The light at the end of the tunnel is ... a colonoscope.

I belong to 4-5 audio boards. Each one suffers from trolls to some extent. 

We've now had decades of time to adapt our social pathologies to Internet communications. You know, the old comment that some are comfortable screaming things at others on boards that they wouldn't dare do IRL (or they might dare only because they have an AK-47 set to full auto-fire).

As the Doors put it, "People Are Strange."

There are a great number of thoughtful posters in A'gon's history that never/rarely share their opinions and expertise anymore. 

Correct.  

If you don't feed the troll it may go away......
