    Individual political views or how to properly use keyboard characters do not fall under that criteria.
    I would agree that it ls wise to have a low-to-zero tolerance for off-topic posts on things like politics and religion because they are emotive and likely to generate large numbers of posts and bad feeling. Information on how to use the forum I would consider fine but if this lead to lots of posts on, say, wordprocessors, apple vs windows, etc... then probably not. I would also consider the rise in the price of drivers to be on topic in the sense of where it is happening. The reasons why though involving what the massive amounts of recently printed money has been used to do is political, is likely to make posters angry and is best discussed elsewhere and not on a DIY speaker forum like this.

    To address the OP, I would suggest that if moderators dislike/delete your posts and you don't agree with their reasoning (we all make mistakes now and again requiring an apology or acknowledgement) then you should move on to a forum where such posts are welcome. Disagreeing with other posters is fine and normal but any significant disagreement with the moderation of a forum is quite different. I have opted to move on from several forums when I came to realise the degree to which some of my posts were disliked by the moderators. I still look at the sites now and again but do not post. It is disappointing and tends to reinforce my information bubble but given the way the web works forums will serve the interests of those that fund and own them.

    2021 US GDP grew at the fastest rate since 1984! Not too shabby. Now if he'd just eliminate the tariffs for US importers of Chinese goods we could lower some of these supply-chain induced increases in relative prices.
    The growth in GDP can cause inflation—which can lead to hyperinflation. I know you think this "fastest rate" of GDP is a good thing, however when you compare GDP to the inflation numbers it is cause for alarm.

    Re: Chinese tariffs, any tariffs that have not been excluded have been past to the consumer as cost increases. You won't be seeing any great roll-back even if the tariffs were eliminated.

    In the UK Diesel prices are around £1.50 per litre (Petrol/gas about 5p cheaper) which for a 3.8l US Gallon at $1.30 to the pound is almost $7.50 per US gallon. The galling thing is that close on 60% of that is tax and then we pay a yearly road tax on top of that.

    I am afraid that there is a certain amount of the J P Morgan(the man) idea "whatever the market will bear" in more populated areas.

    Here in Vt, fuel and groceries have simply returned to 2019 levels, after a year and some at depressed levels.

    Manufactured goods have risen, but supplies are limited by the slow restart of transport systems, and, well, supply and demand.


    But, really, if a tweeter that was 15$ in 2018 is 20$ in 2022, I'd say that our suppliers, including PE, Mad, Solen, have done a reasonable job in trying times.

    In Oz, 93 Octane E10, which is the cheapest petrol, is A$1.65 per litre'; 95 Octane premium is another 15 cents. There are roughly 3.8 litres to the US gallon, so petrol here is A$6.30 per US gallon.

    No wonder people here are going electric!

    The price of gasoline is up, but it has cost more in the not too distant past. And it is a bargain compared to how much the cost of education and health care have gone up. If gas had gone up by the same percentage as the cost of tuition and fees from when I was in school in the mid 70s, we'd be paying upwards of $20/gallon.

    Not everyone suffers during inflation - businesses are posting insane profits right now, and of course we are well on our way to seeing the worlds first trillionaire.

    What is that, $6/gallon US? Yikes! People forget that the current inflation is global, not just local...
