I don't entirely agree with your reading of that post or of the subsequent thread, but it does seem to me that bandwagon behavior happens as often in criticism of Behringer as it does in criticism of criticizing Behringer.dubonaire wrote:If you mean criticism I think is legitmate then in some ways yes. Legitimate criticisms should be freely expressed in public and not shouted down or labelled group bullying etc, whether I agree with them or not.tenembre wrote:All you're really saying here is that the views that you consider legitimate are not mob mentality, and the ones you don't consider legitimate are.dubonaire wrote:
a lot of people are critical of Behringer for many reasons and they have every right to express that criticism. That's not group bullying. Group bullying is when 20 people jump on a forum user for holding a particular view, or maybe a sex offender etc where it becomes a burn the witch scenario. I agree with Muzone that mob mentality exists in social media, Facebook is the worst. But there can also be cases where many people hold a negative view for legitimate reasons.
If you mean views I agree with, then no. I'm not saying that at all. I don't really care if Behringer teases and doesn't release, it doesn't really bother me at all, particularly because I have no desire to buy anything it has teased. I like to discuss Behringer because I find it interesting and although there are several things about the company I don't like and I've said so, I'm not a mob-mentality hater. You will see me defend its China operations aspect in other threads.
What I see as mob mentality posting is when people join threads and don't even read the thread before jumping on the criticism bandwagon, which happened in this thread after a mildly critical post, waving mob mentality placards about that one post.
And with that, I just ran out of Meta for today.
