Why no one dares to post on this forum

I just came in from observing and while emptying the truck I pinched the fatty part of my left hand in the door and dropped my eyepiece case.
While scanning down the list of forums I was suprised to notice that there was activity here.
Being the proud owner of Chinese scopes I stopped in.
It seems I now have a choice.
1) Go back out and get my right hand.
2) Don't bother looking next time.

Alas...I would have liked to see this forum be a place for discussion of Chinese scopes in particular. Instead it's the same old same old:

"THEM DADGUMMED CHINESE SCOPES IS NOT AS GOOD AS BLAH-BLAH-BLAH-BLAH-BLAH."

"YES THEY IS."

"NO THEY AIN'T. THEY AIN'T GOT A STREHL RATIO OF BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH."

Course as I said in the post that got all this cranked up again, Chinese scopes today ain't the same as they was years ago when everybody was focused on what a certain little telescope company from Tennessee was importin'. Today, a Chinese scope is a Celestron Edge HD. wink

_I_ ain't afeared. LOL
