Pointing out the use of sighted evaluations, which are well known for their ability to conform to the proponent's needs and expectations is not ridicule.
The above looks very much like an attempt to ridicule someone. Don't you find it ironic that you are complaining about ridicule and then doing it again and again in your own post?
You Sir are one that ridicules those who don't believe in what you preach.
I admit that sometimes the lack of reason and knowledge of relevant facts evidenced in some post affects my emotions, particularly when people claim that truth is false and false is truth.
However, most of what I post is a simple rendition of generally accepted technical facts, and their application to the sitaution at hand. Many people take correction as redicule, but that is their perception. Let's face it, few people wants to be shown how wrong they are when they are wrong. Denial isn't just a river in Egypt.
I am right down the center on what I call the 2 sides of audio.
Please define what you think the 2 sides of audio are.
I hope that doesn't surprise you or make you think that it qualifies you for some award. In my experience most people think that their beliefs are factually correct no matter how poorly founded they are. Most audiophiles lack formal education related to audio. Their beliefs are heavily based on the writings of journalists and advertising copywriters (often indistinguishable from each other), not practicing engineers or university professors.
But I also know not to get in a urinating match with you. So you win Arny.
That looks like an example of passive-aggressive behavior.
Passive-aggressive behavior is a category of interpersonal interactions characterized by an obstructionist or hostile manner that indicates aggression, or, in more general terms, expressing aggression in non-assertive, subtle (that is, passive or indirect) ways. It can be seen in some cases as a personality trait or disorder marked by a pervasive pattern of negative attitudes and passive, usually disavowed, resistance in interpersonal or occupational situations.
Passive-aggressive behavior can manifest itself as learned helplessness, procrastination, hostility masquerading as jokes, stubbornness, resentment, sullenness, or deliberate/repeated failure to accomplish requested tasks for which one is (often explicitly) responsible.
