...we'll largely leave you to it to discuss the topic(s) at hand here but please keep it civil. "Fuck you" (or equivalent) is not a valid response to another user's opinion. Ethics can be an interesting topic. Please make this thread reflect that rather than turn into a shitshow that we have to lock. It's up to you. Sometimes no response can be a better option than a hastily typed reply in the heat of the moment.
Just reminding myself what I wrote in the first post of this thread.
The point of this thread, which was my idea, was to remove the discussion of Behringer's business practices from every single thread that dared have the B word in its title. People who wanted to discuss the equipment felt hounded by others which really isn't fair. I think in that respect this thread has worked.
But it has now turned into the very shitshow I mentioned in my first post.
- Lock the thread.
Where does any discussion of Behringer's practices go then? Back into every other Behringer thread? Which was the cause of the problem in the first place. We could say "no business practice etc discussion" in remaining Behringer threads, but then inevitably there'll be accusations that the moderators are shills who are clamping down on any negative comments relating to the company and removing the right of people to have their say.
- Leave the thread open.
And hope that people exercise a bit of self-control. Which, I'm not convinced will happen given how things have gone so far.
- Some other alternative.
What exactly, I do not at the moment know.
I'm genuinely interested in what people think. I'd rather not bump this thread more in order for you to give your opinions here so please PM them to me. I'll then do something about the issue over the weekend.
