A truly terrible First World problem !
Responses from people who have no sense of humour and take every comment as an affront to their beliefs.
Responses which attempt to correct others but add nothing of actual value to the thread.
Misquoting facts or taking them out of context.
And the biggest annoyance of all - forgetting that HiFi and music are enjoyable hobbies and a means to relax.

Stereo - PC/NAS (Synology DS212J), Squeezebox Touch via CAT6, MF A3.2 Amp, Monitor Audio Silver S8
Maybe we should start a new thread titled 'I want to complain about The_Lhc correcting me when I've said something silly'?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Not actually where I was coming from but that could a fun thread.
I'm not sure about fun, but I'm definitely thinking long
I'll do one entitled "Posts where The LHC has agreed with someone". That should slip down page 1 of the Active Topics list failrly quickly
Main system: Mac Mini 2011 • HRT II+ DAC • Marantz CD 63 mkII KI & PM66 KI • MS 10i speakers [borrowed]
In storage: Thorens TD160 (no cart) • Cyrus 2 & PSX • Cyrus tuner • Technics SL-P777 • Nakamichi DR-1
In fairness, I think you can take any lack of posting by The_Lhc as implicit agreement with what is being said.
This forum would be a far poorer place without The_Lhc IMO...

I don't think anyone said otherwise (certainly on this page of this thread).

To echo you points and emphasis the ones that bother me...
1. Personal insults and put downs have no place on any forum.
2. Hijacking a thread in an obscure direction also doesn't help the OP or the people interested in following the discussion.
Each person has his/her own situation and can't always follow the suggestions provided, but atleast they can use the commets to make a better decision and compromise to achive a satisfactory solution and conclusion.
Finally, there is no email option to inform you when someone answers your posting or a discussion that you are following. THAT would be really handy.

Guess I have a little too much time on my hands?
1 those who post a question; receive many replies and are never 'seen' again.
2 those who seek (and receive) advice and clearly ignore it and 'go their own way'.
3 those who quote/quote/quote unable to find the 'reply' button.
4 those who can't be bothered to search the forum for answers before asking the exact same question.
5 those who make the forum 'personal' making the post a private argument.
6 those who divert a post away from the original 'question' making it their same old rant.
7 those who moan about others 'behaviour' on the forum.
Those who complain instead of enjoying the eclectic behaviour of other human beings. Something tells me I would not go for a beer with you.
