For anyone interested in car crash forum activity, What hi-fi forum is going through a bit of a meltdown today:

https://www.whathifi.com/forum/hi-fi/cl ... -alpha-one

https://www.whathifi.com/forum/hi-fi/fa ... ut-dealers

https://www.whathifi.com/forum/hi-fi/moderators

https://www.whathifi.com/forum/hi-fi/el ... page=6#new

I predict that some or all of these threads will get locked and deleted.

My personal view is that I have a certain amount of sympathy for both sides. And that this is a prime example of ad hominem escalation.

I can also understand the hands-off (so far) approach of the moderation team of that forum - trying to treat the members like adults. Today it feels like a Lord of the Flies experiment where things are starting to get out of hand.

To be fair Lindsay, QuestForThe13thNote is a fruit loop of the highest order. Post its purge, he's been booted from WAM twice too so his track record for banning is second to none, especially since it looks as if he's gone for WhatHiFi too.
To be a shill, in a world that is constantly trying to make you buy something else, is the greatest accomplishment.
