    "Dogma is the established belief or doctrine held by a religion, or a particular group or organization.[1] It is authoritative and not to be disputed, doubted, or diverged from, by the practitioners or believers." (from wikipedia)

    That sort of describes some of the peeps at other audio websites, especially the "not to be disputed, doubted, or diverged from" part, as in: "This is the way xyz is and if you don't agree with me you are a weenie".

    I applaud our Administrator and Moderators for keeping things in line here.

    Here's another take on "Dogma" which offers a bit more of an informed opinion than Wikipedia:

    Thinking Out Loud is somewhat of a misnomer that can suck you in if you don't read the rules. http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=97523

    Actually, I think that a forum with a name like Thinking Out Loud should be the perfect place for questions like that of the OP.

    AK stands for AudioKarma.

    Owen has been MIA for 16 days. I hope he is spending his time wisely. We need more deep thinkers like the G man.

    The correct transliteration from Russian is Kalashnikov. In this context, AK stands for Avtomat Kalashnikova or Kalishnikov's Automatic. His first name is Mikhail, not Aleksander.

    The AK-47 is, without a doubt, the most dependable firearm ever made. The Russian military replaced it with the AK-74 in 1974.
