I personally think the comment was valid, even if the OP may not necessarily agree with the suggestion, which is the whole point anyway. Why do you think you need to reprimand people because you consider that they are off topic and you think the information would not be useful to the OP, as well as implying that they know nothing
each time you do this?
If I had asked the OPs question, I would have been very happy to read Johnsteph10
's suggested alternatives. That doesn't mean I would take his advice. And please: don't bother flaming me
either, I just think it's a shame that you spoil your otherwise excellent record with these aggressive and unhelpful messages. It doesn"t seem like good forum etiquette to me.
JMO, you don't have to like it or heed it
If he had taken another tact, his post might have been OK. But instead all he did was blurt out what HE thought was better without even considering that the OP was looking specifically for in-ceiling speakers and was asking a specific question about center-channel speakers. Look at the title of his post.
He COULD have said something like:
"Well, in-ceiling speakers are OK if that's what you specifically need. But if it's at all possible for you to get in-room speakers, you will find that, for the money, they will sound much better than in-ceiling speakers will sound, because............................etc.. Some that I would recommend would be.......................etc.."
But he didn't say that. Instead he listed a bunch of the usual suspect ID brands and simply told the guy that he could do "MUCH, MUCH better". I don't even think he read through the OP's post.
Sorry, but I didn't think his post was that helpful to the OP and THAT is my primary concern; not whether I step on someone's toes.
