i just got pissed off for not getting the info i wanted over there. i come over here, lurk for a couplehours, and now it's like crack. can't get enough of learning about the finer points of the moneypit. :blush: and not getting slammed for wanting to try something new is always nice. speaking of which, my popcorn's getting cold regarding the thread in the sub forum over thereI know you were always up for some beef Team Shimano, but at the same time you were one of the few I respected over there. And i'm very glad you came over, that was partially my doing wasnt it...?
x2. Sometimes I get pissed off at some of the people there, but then I realize that it's the internet and pointless to take things so personally. I used to just ignore it, but lately I've started arguing. There is definately a gang mentality where once one person jumps on someone everyone else does. Having said that, I still post there. The main guys I listen to for good advice is Thumper (j.d.2.6 now) and Andy Jones. Good guys.since i've diverted all my forum time to diyma i actually agree with you. all they talk about in ot is objectifying women and sports. and considering i've learned more over here at diyma in a couple months than i have in a year at sd concerning car audio, you get the idea. i'm also all about trying something before knocking it. at sd they knock the cheaper stuff just to sound kewl i was looking at subs for a friend of mine at one of the local dealers i'm in good standing with and the new sony xplods (the deep ones with the black cone) compare directly to the diamond d3's in a blind comparison. both in optimal sized ported boxes tuned to 40hz, i couldn't tell a difference. and they don't weigh anything. i know i wouldn't be against running one. if i were to say all those good things about the new sony subs at sd, i'd get slammed into the ground. and EVERY one of the people slamming have no idea what the fuck they're talking about.
Sound domain is full of jerks. I was a member for 5 years and had a low post count and was called a noob. I only posted informative information. I posted on OT a couple a times and the noob shit started. I mentioned my young daughter and school or something. The sexual remarks started about my 6 year old. These ass holes talk about having sex with my daughter and send pictures. OT is OT but there is a fine line in OT and talking about a child like that. I got banned for standing up. So fuck all the Sound Domain ass holes. Its pricks like that who give the other members a bad rap. That place left a bad taste in my mouth. I would not piss on that forum if it was on fire.
then when someone posts a pic of their girlfriend or wife that looks something other than anorexic they get brutal. you know what, overly skinny women ARE NOT where it's at! i'd go with a girl that's pleasantly plump before going with one that looks like she hasn't eaten in a year.I hate that. bunch immature hornballs who claim they would bang anything that walks - or crawls. it probably wouldnt be so bad if the admins didnt join in as well.
even if they dont know anything about car audio it would be ok, as long as they knew how to be a good admin.This thread is funny.
It's good to vent. I believe that site is dying slowly. They need weed out the douchebags and start over with some mids & admins who actually know WTF they are talking about (save a few).
I remember you from there. You were very helpful in a few of my posts, unlike most of the others who flame you for asking anything that isn't about CDT. So, thanks for that.I was quite pleased when I was able to ween myself off of SD. DIYMA gave me the audio outlet I needed and wanted. My problem with SD was OT. You can't help but stray over there occasionally, and I would, only to leave pissed off.
The final straw was helping a guy with a browser hijack he had picked up. I posted some directions on how to fix this particular hijack, and evidently the resident computer guru got pissed off and layed into me. I didn't get it. I helped the guy. I fixed his problem, but some douchebag's ego got hurt and started calling me all sorts of names. Then everybody else joined in and I was done. I had been a member since 2001, and was still be called "noob". It was ridiculous and immature. So I left it for the kids.
