Thanks Rhetor...I wasn't coming back to this thread for a while and then today I went to the AVS Home page and saw that the post below was tied for the number 2 rated spot for most helpful posts with 2 thumbs up on the entire AVS Forum...Then I went on and read a comment by the number 2 most prolific poster who was behind jdsmoothie a couple of days ago and had to LOL given that I don't post much Off Topic...This will be the second.

I agree it was off topic and apologize to those that it matters--That said, I haven't posted since the post RHead referred to and when I logged on today saw that there were "137 new posts" (on this thread) and did feel like I had to go through a lot of OT remarks along with some that had good information for others. Good luck to you guys and no one is running me off...Just taking a vacation away from the silliness.
EDIT: I couldn't help the irony so I decided to give that post a "thumbs up" as well so that should make it tied for the number one position.
Yup . . . I too am getting tired of wading through the Facebook-like chaff.
I could talk about my other hobbies and intests and world peace . . . . But I do not do Facebook . . . I want to talk about Klipsch speakers in a Klipsch owners thread . . . But I will bow out for a while too since staying on topic is now but a silly notion which gets lambasted on this thread . . . Polite reminders to stay on topic are met with derision.
For you guys who have not discovered the Klipsch Forum Fastslappy is always referring to, or even the new Klipsch area on Audiokarma, have you ever wondered why their big guns hardly every post here anymore?
Don't wonder . . . just keep posting . . . off topic. Great way to ruin what was once a serious thread.
The chaff you have to waste time reading to get to a serious question or answer is amazing. This thread has taken a sophomoric turn.
Hope you all can get back on track sometime. It is sad to lose what was once a targeted and respected Klipsch speaker thread with very little chaff to an off topic free-for-all. And to see respected members chided in posts which sound more like school-yard retorts than seriuos AV science posts.
Have at it . . . Get those post counts up with off topic chaff.
And before you blast me with the adolescent jibes I know are coming for.calling to stay on topic . . . I will post one for you.
"No I am not! You are . . . I know you are, but what am I?" And all of the other school-yard adolescent jibes.
Somebody please PM me when there is a run of posts . . . on topic. Or catch me on one of those other sites.Edited by Rhetor - 8/21/13 at 5:30pm
