Why not a "tail gate" chat section, a place where you enter at your "own risk".
If you dish it out you gotta be able to take it. Also a place where rather than locking a thread it could be moved out of public view. :?:

What a frightening thought. Exactly what type of person is CAM trying to attract?

"it could be moved out of public view'

Good one Ron. Not the worst idea I ever heard. Audio Asylum has a similar thing - "Water Cooler" and then the really far out "Outside Asylum" - the latter isn't even listed as a forum!

If CAM guys want to get rolling in the dirt then why not just move the thread to a non-listed forum and they can bash each other's heads in all day.
Sort of a non-sanctioned, underground, out behind the woodshed, bare-knuckles forum. And not even in the public view. Protect the innocent audiots. :shock:
They can blow off all their repressed emotions rather than frustrating them by locking a thread.

Who knows - it might end up being like the cowboy bar fights from days gone by. Take it outside, beat on each other, shake hands, come back in and buy each other a beer.

I like it. I'd likely never need go there but... who knows. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I would even volunteer my time as mod. However only for this section as that is the extent of my "qualifications",.....

The first rule of Fight Club is that you don't talk about Fight Club.

A place for people to argue ? Waste of bandwidth.

Argument is for the most part a good thing...conflict and how poorly it is generally dealt w is another.

This thread could be moved to such a section and that would be the last you see of it....
Not all "audiophiles" are the same...some enjoy a little banter and slight derailment...

How about setting up a vote?
If it goes through then there should be a disclaimer that CAM is not liable for anything and anything said has nothing to do with CAM blah blah.. Also if a member doesn't like it get off it and continue with regular programming blah blah.. Oh, and you would need to click a "continue" button to enter..
Sounds interesting :wink:
