Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

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.

:boohoo:

Yamaha V2065. MS Mezzo 5.1 Panasonic 42. Sony BD. Garrard 86SB. WD Live TV. SkyHD.

RE: Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

8 those who have systems that I am jealous of and post pictures of them (aimed at Jaxwired)

(said in jest of course)

I think mine would have to be those that don't understand that everything is subjective so reviews / opinions are fine, but ultimately you should be making the decision based on needs, finances, etc, etc.

RE: Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

Serial, long-term, home auditioners who spend months (years?) sapping the income of local hi-fi shops by never actually buying the stuff they borrow and reducing it's value by turning it all into ex-demo equipment that has to be sold at a loss.

(Or it forces shop-keepers to open more brand-new stock for shop demo - than they would have otherwise - because the existing demo stock is loaned out to time-wasters and wannabe 'home reviewers'.)

My dealer swipes the customer's card before they leave with kit to demo for a weekend. If it isn't back by the agreed day then they've bought it!

Not a WHF? forum 'thing', but I just wanted to say it while we're moaning about stuff Smile

People with lack of perspective, getting insanely wound up about things that don't matter.

RE: Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

People who bang on about HDMI cables - either for or against - who gives a monkeys either way?  Smile

 

Not enough people creating new threads or posting - basically forum being too quiet.

 

People who hide behind the words in my opinion!

 

I will have a think about some more...

People who get banned and then let back in - keep them out permanently!

RE: Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

People who attack products which they have not used because they are 'snake oil', expensive, or just made by Apple.

People who go on a hi-fi forum to discuss football, F1, or Strictly Come Dancing.

The regular 'What are you listening to/watching' which gets subverted by the 'my tastes are more obscure than yours' crowd.

RE: Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?

1.when I write a reply press post and it disapears,saying "comments field needs to be filled in(something like that)I can't spell it took me 10 minutes to write a post the other day after checking it to avoid getting ridiculed.....again,and to have it disapear like that is a bit annoying and it's happening more and more often.

2.when people seem to spend most of the time attacking or trying to convince others that a device there perfectly happy with isn't as good as another (see recent iPhone 5 debate)

3.posting pictures is a bit of a long one.(can't believe in 2012 you can't just click on add picture,select file from folder and click upload...works well ok on things like twitter)

other than that its ok..
