Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: This is the SET froum...

I'm with you on this-- I too believe in staying on topic,
that is, as long as we don't start suppressing posts/posters
as a sort of "cure" for a problem that doesn't exist
as a genuine problem.

We should also let posters stray from the topic as long as
it doesn't become something bizarre, like advertising
Women's brazziers. Wait a minute-- even that might have some
bearing on something in audio that maybe we could apply--
then, it might not. If it doesn't-- nothing lost--
laugh at it, and go on to the posts you can use.

Most of the posts look very much like signs of
health to me... if we don't leave them alone, we end up
as cheap, totalitarian censors-- which are a penny-a-dozen
all over the world.

These particular forums are unique in that they have so
far stayed in the free speech/expression mode, making them
the most valuable forums on the internet.

That this causes some frictions is exactly what should
be expected and will happen but it is POSITIVE, not negative.

The trick to negotiating such a place is to use the posts
you can use yourself. There are plenty of good ones
posted on both sides, simply pick those out for yourself.

You could censor some posts or posters, but then all you
would have is tons of the same ideas-- worked over and over
until all the members got bored by the same approaches from
the posts they did allow and the forum becomes just
another club just like the millions of others on the

The intelligence and ingenuity of nearly all of the posters
here is very high. Arguments between members should be
expected, encouraged, and learned from!
