I saw Radical Vision's post to be a perfect example of elitism considering the silly statements about the PCB color and size 🤣 and how he was disregarding budget (or value) and low-end products.
It isn't surprising why Tetrium replied that way.
Right. My point was only the "big d*** measuring contest or something" was quoted; making Tetrium look like Radical Vision, with other members responding in a way which inaccurately reflects Tetrium.
I responded to Tetrium's original post in reply to Radical, I replied this time more to the general thought that at times this place and especially this thread can come across as a huge epeen waving contest by certain members, it annoys the shit out of me and I only wish to enjoy the hardware and discussion of it.
While it was out of context the general feeling of it isn't exactly wrong. (Doesn't excuse the out of context quote however)
Great - Continuing on with from your take, I don't care how big others think I think my ding-a-ling is. If I find an awesome find or a less than awesome find, I'll post it and I won't feel any guilt. For the people thinking I'm bragging, there's others thinking "I bought that for 20 bucks 5 years ago, wow you paid too much" and so on.
Let's use a recent finding of yours. If some goofball prevented you from posting about that Compaq V3500, I wouldn't have known it was disguised as a V3000. An interesting nugget of information and may keep me from missing out on one in the future. I didn't feel jealous, only joy of knowing I won't miss out on the opportunity in the future should another pop up.
Keep posting all the great "crap" you find. I am looking forward to it!
I refuse to submit to social pressure to keep silent, feel shame, or any other negative sentiment.
