RE: ASR forums, Toole and Olive. When science creates a religious cult

"I got banned there too for expressing a preference for vinyl playback "

Are you sure it was *simply* for expressing that preference?

I'm a member over on ASR and I've continually expressed a preference for vinyl. Not even a hint of a ban for doing so. The general concensus is personal preference is perfectly fine.

Similarly, the various claims made by the research cited by Toole et al have been batted around, scrutinized and critiqued for years at ASR. I haven't seen anyone banned for simply doing this. (I've even questioned the mono speaker blind tests on some grounds).

Which leads me to wonder: Is it possible it was the manner in which you posted that might have got you banned? I've seen others on forums say they've been banned from ASR and in looking at their posts...it become more apparent why they were banned. I'm NOT saying this applies to you, but it isn't usual to be banned for the things you say you were banned for.
