What gives with the moderators over on the Hoffman forum?



I see after a measley 35+ posts, that the Hoffman Forum conversations are steered in the direction they want the discussions to go.
I mentioned the word dork in reference to myself and was chastized by a stiff-armed, protector of good taste and high morals. Ack.

I never go to the Hoffman board unless someone here links there. There's a lot of stuff discussed there that I'm interested in, but the overall atmosphere is a bit... stifled.

What the heck is the "Hoffman board", and does that picture imply that they invoke Godwin's Law extra hastily?

The Hoffman Board is the message board where people that prefer sound over music hang out. Its also apparently required that whenever you discuss an album, you must either proclaim the superiority of the Steve Hoffman "flat transfer" reissue, or else lament the absence of a Steve Hoffman "flat transfer" reissue. Evidently EQ is the enemy.

I enjoyed the Google ads on the leprechaun watch website:

The Hoffman board can be useful. How else would I have known that the original German cd pressing of Moondance had the best sound?

That's pretty much my definition of hell. The 'hi-fi club' grown up. Rolling Eyes

I'd rather discuss the music. Very Happy

Jan & Dean are hoppin' on the Hoffman board right now . . .

And J&D's catalog is so diverse . . . with mono vs. stereo . . . sound effects here, but missing there . . . it's cool to get an audiophile perspective on it.

Plus, I can blow their minds with context. That's my job.

Hoffman is a J&D fan . . . and subscribes to the Mono Doctrine of J&D . . . which makes him cool on a J&D level.

That's one massive music forum . . . in terms of numbers.

Seriously . . . some very cool people there. Through the back door, I got a burned copy (for reference) of one of the old legit reel-to-reel J&D Liberty releases (4-track stereo tape) . . . issued by Music Tapes, Inc. in the '60s.

Someone was talking about the EQ'ing of the Monkee Delux sets, and finally after a load of people chimed in, one of the Hitler-Youth mods chimed in and asked them to change the subject and not talk about it again. Isn't that the idea behind a internet discussion group and music forum?? To discuss. No one was out of line. Forced politeness abound. Fukkin' sterile, bro.
Sieg heil!

Yup--religion, politics, and EQ'ing Monkees records. All topics guaranteed to cause problems on a message board.

tis a good site to find out what releases actually exist for any given band and which ones are worth avoiding. nobody can deny that some releases just sound like shit.

and to be fair there's barely any sniping at each other compared to other forums. i think its just cos they have "music insiders" there that they have to be strict.

and anyways, tony visconti was posting there a while back so cant be all bad!

Anyone who slept with Mary Hopkin is OK in my book. Cool
