I get that a lot myself on some other boards.Automatic Gainsay wrote:You know, I showed up at VSE as a goofy light-hearted synth-lovin' fool. I learned the hard way that the tone at VSE isn't goofy or light-hearted. It is often amusing, jocular, and fun... but there is a tone here that isn't... well, particularly accepting of foolishness.meatballfulton wrote:First time in history someone has suggested Marc is ever less than a total gentleman??!!monolith wrote:all due respect Marc, but that came across quite cuntish
A lot of things have changed here in the last few years... things have really calmed down, and whereas it used to be a pretty staunch bastion of fact without tolerance for bullshit... now things are getting a bit lax. My adopted tone has not. Of course, any time I say anything that people disagree with, I get pretty seriously addressed. But apparently, if I deal the same way, I'm "cuntish."
Well, whatever. The people who know me in person know that I'm actually still a pretty goofy light-hearted guy. But I am seriously about synthesis, education, and the history of synths and electronic music. I get pretty intense in regard to casual inaccuracy and revisionist history. If that makes me "cuntish," then so be it.
Meatball, I'm kind of saddened that you feel this way about me.
P.S. The fact that I wasn't addressing the OP is quite evident if you actually read my post and compare it to the posts of others previous to mine. Or, you can' think me "cuntish." TEVS, YO
People kind of mistake earnestness and genuine passion for a subject with being cuntish, smart-aleck or know it all.
I guess we all need to relax and give others some credit. We aren't all gifted writers, so communicating by clumsy sentences, on the internet, will lead to misunderstandings.
On the other hand it is fun to be contrarian and stir the pot. After all these are just message boards/forums. Not the flipping New York TImes. I appreciate people who genuinely attempt to convey information and be helpful, but some folks are just take it too seriously! (and I mean this about boards in general, not just this one).
I've seen some boards go down in political flame wars. That is a large part of the reason I stay off most of the Macintosh boards. Too many Liberal V Conservative grudge matches. Too many Trolls!
We can at least be thankful that in this dusty corner of the internet people just get butt hurt over DCO vs VCO.
And we dont have overzealous moderators dinging people for 'swearing'.
But again seriously, dude says 'entry level modular' and nobody else says Dark Energy?
