Oldius acted quickly and fairly to get the WAF thread back on topic.

It's a very good thread, too.

I think it is because they are in a bit of a tizz how to deal with it. They have at last found it is not me causing it and they need to deal with the trolls - this will be an on going saga for a while I think.

Slim multi driver floor standers seem to be all the rage now. I was not aware that they are cheaper to produce than a speaker with only one larger driver and the bass is less extended. I'm sure I'm not the only non tech to find the thread very informative. It does seem strange that the thread has been locked, especially as the trolls seem to be under control.

That's strange.
Last night I reported Blackmetalboon's final post in that WAF for being personally insulting to me. As I said in my report it's not highly insulting, but it is still insulting and off topic.
So far I've not heard from the moderators on this. And his post is still there.

No big deal. Just means that Blackmetalboon isn't in my good books at the moment.

They don't reply to reports. They seem to have four choices 1/ remove post 2/ warn everyone like they are school teachers 3/ don't remove post 4/ ignore you. The problem is you don't know which one has been YOUR treatment for daring to wake them up.
