Love Flow. Love that whole album. Love Spock's Beard. Love Troll for bringing them into the conversation.

TR, I'd like some good examples of your record. I have a personal interest in smaller labels. I don't care how bad the forum is to other people.
Guy opens a thread about how the last 35 years of prog are vastly inferior to the first 10.
It gradually turns out, that basically the only reason for that is, that he gets sent a lot of stuff where people try to polish their music with digital production gimmicks. Even apart from his ridiculously smug dismissal of everything programmed (although I agree that programmed imitations of instruments do mostly sounds bad), this thread is just about some pet peeve drenched in bias and has nothing really to do with the supposedly overall declining quality of the genre.
I don't think that pointing that out is as much a dick move, as starting this ridiculous discussion in the first place.

Chula I thought we would never agree on anything. Finally we agree on something.

Unless the person criticizing it does so in a dickish manner, and you did. You were quite rude to him. The thread may be ridiculous (I couldn't care either way), but people aren't going to want to listen to dick moves. If you want to stop the thread, you could try go back to trying to teach him something.

Being an asshole gets a bad rep, it's a lot more fun than you'd think. Give it a shot sometime.

I've done it before, and I didn't like the aftermath. And trust me, I know very well how to be an *******. I actually got some critical praise online for my insults at one point, don't ask me where. But I'd rather not be an ass to anyone who doesn't deserve it. Plus, why fight an *******'s point with being an ******* in general? That's hypocritical.

But don't think I've never been one before.
