Alright, alright...


while I did find it phunny, I have to agree that this lowers the astuteness factor of this forum... which is why, even though I am sick to deeath about the friggin' topic, I have not gone this far (and I AM a photoshop guru).


...and BTW, SamC, why on earth do you think the OFDM topic ended up this way on this forum? It sure as hell did not start out like this, I mean, I don't think the board members were born with a genetic predisposition against OFDM, so what happened? And why did the same thing NOT happen to the thousands upon thousands of other topics?


I don't think it's the topic in question, but the overzealous nature of some particular members that is the culprit. No?

Wow, such hostility http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I'm almost shocked that I receive some negative comments based upon how many people react to Bob Utne and the COFDM propoganda. Ah well, I don't have half as many enemies. By the way I find it very interesting that the "particular member" below has a signature with a link that reads "Books those in power don't want you to read" the first book on that list being "Necessary Illusions : Thought Control in Democratic Societies" and the "particular member" wants a kill switch to censor my messages. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif Oh the irony, the irony http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I find it all very amusing! By the way all I have to say to your tirade below is "Say my name, say my name" http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

dpak,

I'm with you 2000%. I think some members really need to lighten up a bit. This was a valid way to poke a little fun at a topic that has been rehashed countless times like no other topic (and this is for an issue that is no longer relevant!). I too am shocked by some of the reactions here. I see no problem with a member expressing, in a humorous way (to me at least), a point of view. I've always been amazed how some people who claim to be ardent advocates of a Democracy, are the first to look for ways to censor a point of view that is contrary to theirs.

I see the AVS Forum referenced in other places from time to time. They seem to take the AVSF serious. Do you know a better place??


I will let the forum owner(s) and Sys-ops address the issue about calling the forum members "Dumb".

I fail to appreciate the humor. I agree posts such as this lowers the value of this forum.

Oh GIVE ME A BREAK, these people post propoganda day after day with the same nonsensical repetitive argument with a zeal only known to a few communist propogandists, and you complain when people react. Learn to laugh a little. Ill quote the earlier post "Mature OFDM discussion is no longer accepted here" if you didn't have a guy posting this nonsense day after day which is blatently false with such ferver, you wouldn't have a backlash against "mature OFDM discussion" You know what they say, your argument is only as effective as your spokesman, we didn't ask you to bring them in to bombard us with the COFDM issue, if you had provided a better spokesman, I doubt you'd see a backlash. On a side note, both the NAB and the government have decided once and for all on the 8VSB system so theres effectively no need for your "mature OFDM discussion" anyway. And I doubt anybody would comment on it EVEN THEN if you didn't have the guy as the spokesman. By the way I almost expected this "intellectually superior" reaction argument to my original post. Having said that, I'll say two things. a) You're not smarter than us. b) we clearly understand all the nonsensical technical propoganda that your spokesman bombards the forum with. We read it and we understand it, we also realize that its without merit. Based upon every test ever conducted by the government, the benefits of 8VSB always push it above the rest. So please spare me that "We're intellectually enlightened, and you resort to caricatures" argument. By the way regarding the "grow up or move on" comment. I can reasonably state that there are far more people sick of the constant COFDM propoganda, most of which is utter nonsense than there are people who want to listen to it such as you, so why don't you move on? And take Utne with you http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


PS. Why don't you go to the link below to see the kind of reactions your spokesman gets. And you wonder why people make caricatures http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I should also point out that a time honored way of intellectual sarcasm has always been to make caricatures. I clearly recall many of King George during the revolution in the 1700s.
