Default Re: Having a laugh?

This subject comes around periodically in the forums, often with titles relating to safety. One title even spoke of a "death sentence".

I can understand newbie record player owning members being clueless, but I would have expected them to do a bit of basic research first. In my day you went to the public library or read articles in "Practical" type magazines. Nowadays it's easier as it's all on the 'net.

What puzzles me more is long standing members with hundreds of posts and seemingly many repairs to their name who never seem to learn anything form their experiences.

To coin a phrase from another member "Compulsive Component Changing" (CCC) seems to be a popular repair technique with no fault finding being done at all.
