Your real name is Conan. "Tim" is just some handle you use when you're not on MB.

s_k: Thinks his ears were touched by God himself, his ego has surpassed Kobe Bryants.

There are a few bad things about S_k, I think. He's definetly a bit of a brag, he's sometimes rude in that kind of innocent way with a little wink-smiley at the end which means he'll get away with it and he often treat the threads as if they were chat rooms.

However, the good easily outweighs the bad, I think. He's honest, friendly and also very knowledgeable (an asset on the broad subject of gear and equipment for sure) and, if the topic moves onto something he doesn't know much about, he acknowledges that and treats such subjects with a kind of humility (I mean that in a positive way!). So much of the internet is people talking or writing about stuff they don't know much about, so his honesty is refreshing. Also, he has very good/trained ears.

Glad to see you've stuck around, S_k

I think I know what you mean with the rudeness, Tore. But I don't think I mean those things as rude as they are picked up by some readers. I honestly never felt like seriously insulting someone. There's no one (except for some banned members that never got to 20 postings or so) that I dislike.
I do get carried away often and I do respond to postings without looking at which topic I'm in. I have that problem on every forum by the way. I'm a bit too impulsive when it comes to replying now and then. Working on that.

It is true that I may come over like a know-all now and then, but it's like Tore says: Only when I know what I'm on about. And in those cases I indeed do have a tendency to be very targeted. But then I am sure I'm right obviously .

Thanks for your kind words, tore. On to 1000 .

I agree with all the bad points on s_k. I skip his posts a lot of the time.

I think s_k is a nice guy. I really don't think any of his rudeness is intended at all, when it's interpreted as such. In many sections of the site, particular in those dealing with audio, he's a very valuable contributor.

Hm. You know I haven't even noticed any of the "bad points" about him. He's never once seemed out of line in my book. Go figure.

S_k is a great member. He has positive and negative things to say about different things just like everyone else.

I never noticed that James and I'm sorry to hear.
I really respect that you skip my postings rather than give me a hard time.
If you ever have the feeling I do something that I could change, feel free to PM.

Definitely isn't intended but I do know I have some difficulties finding the right 'tone'. It's not something I can change right now but I am aware of that and, for what it's worth, it's been so much worse...

There are definitely things mentioned that I've heard before.
As long as everyone realises that I am not willing, in any way, to annoy people or to be rude, I hope you guys (well, obviously not you conan ) can cope with my presence

I don't mean that in a condescending way, just that it's easy to overlook a lot of the things and I'm sure he's unaware of a lot of the things he does and how they appear to others.
Thanks for pointing that out again, Plum .
I tend not to make a secret out of this so people can (if they want) think about that when they read my postings and perhaps sigh for a bit and carry on. It's exactly like you put it: I am unaware or have a different (abnormal) view on the way things I do and say appear to others.
It's the other way around too, I sometimes interpret things in a way that's far from 'average'. Sometimes that's a choice I make, but often it's just aspergers getting in the way.

Just once more: I have been diagnosed with aspergers (which is a form of autism) and I do live from disability benefits. You don't get these easily here, so there's probably a lot more wrong with me than you might think. Altough I know it doesn't really show, not even when you meet me, when you get to know me you will notice some abnormalities. It's hard to say how 'severe' I have aspergers. It's hard to say. I can do a lot, but there's some very normal things (like making phone calls for instance) I'm terrified of. Socially I'm better than I am supposed to be, considering the severity of my autism. I never really gave up communicating and trained myself. It really works, but it still shows sometimes.
I am sorry for that. Altough some of you guys may think I'm some arrogant prick, I do care a lot of what other people way. I don't even play music people don't like when they're at my place. I make compilation tapes and I leave tracks out because I know they will bother some people. So I'm in no way feeling better or more important than others. It's probably just the way I put things that makes people think I do, but I really really don't.

I've always been bothering a select group of people. It's been like this my whole life. The only forum I've managed to stay without being bullied is the forum on which I am a moderator myself. Go figure...
So please, let this be the first exception. That would be great.

Yeah you would, keep paying attention. By the time I have 5000 postings you will have noticed .
