I have no problem with a little bit of conspiracy theories - but the processor pics are starting to get tiresome.
If I were a moderator I might have brought out the ban stick about two weeks ago!
I am not annoyed by seeing "under the hood" type pics of any gear. It was the non-sensical campaigning that all A/V components are made with the same parts therefor high-end gear is a scam and you are getting ripped-off if you buy it - this is what got the guy banned because it is clearly wrong-minded thinking.
Even if you are not an engineer, and/or don't know what you are looking at in "under the hood" pics., it almost goes against this hobby to just refuse to want to see them. I think banning people just because they show internal pics of their gear is wrong, and I don't think those that control this board would do that - or least I hope they would not.
I am not a mechanic, but when the hood pops up on a high-end car, I want to see.
