Why discussions generate into personal affronts...


Hello to all... I am a new-be in comparison to those who have thousands of inputs into forums/discussions.

I find it disappointing that in reading inputs, I have to waste time in members sniping at each other. Half the time it simply is a difference in opinion that breaks down into nasty idiocy,  and half the time I need some type of reference to past verbal battles fought about in other topics/forums. 

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO IMHO? Many times spewing personal dogma against each other just confuses simple people like me who are just looking for guidance - not miracles. We all view another's opinion with reservation - nobody's got a doctorate on audiophile experience; if I was to listen to and obey the professionals, I would never had experimented with 12g solid core copper, vinyl-jacketed wire, twisted and used bare wire no connectors -WHICH I AM VERY HAPPY WITH ...

SO: SOMEBODY fill me in why knowledgeable people generate into nastiness in discussions...

A matter of concern that several posts on this thread recently agreed with
my post and their post have been removed. If the member's removed them, which wouldn't make sense, and if the Audiogon moderators removed the post then it is very dark day for Audiogon due to the fact going back ten tears, post on both sides of the table, on the issue of this thread would've not been removed which would indicate that the moderator's are now judge and jury and do not take a neutral objective position's, and decide which side is right or wrong, and only will allow post on the side they favor. That's not how debates are done.This post will probably be removed as well.
I guess some people just have to be right and get their way but if that was the case we would only have one amp company, one speaker company or whatever.
We should all be able to have our opinion without being nasty and insulting.
I spent my money on what I like and sounds good to be and you should be able to do the same.
... sounds like we're all Rodney King or Stalin - no middle ground...
