I'm curious to see what my fellow miners are thinking regarding the movement for BIP 148, or if they even know what it's all about.

UASF - user activated SOFT FORK

That means there is no chain split so your question is kind of invalid.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Is it?

If most miners continue to hash on the legacy chain and a small % hash on the BIP 148 chain (BIP 148 nodes reject legacy blocks) is that not a chain split? It will persist as long as the legacy chain is longer than the BIP 148 chain, or if the BIP 148 miners give up. If BIP 148 chain gets longer the legacy chain will be wiped out. The legacy chain, in the case of BIP 148 chain getting a relevant amount of hashpower, would have no choice but to hard fork to prevent the re-org threat.
