Default Hoping you both will forgive each other and be friends......


I share your hopes and think that Bernard has much too big a task in trying to moderate the forum single handed. Several recent outbust indicate a man with much too little sleep. I would like to volunteer to assist in moderating the solid state, digital, and pass forums. Bernhard? Jason?

Guy


I thought that I smelled a rat in amongst the tone of the posts by "artnyos, GGrand, guygrand, theodorecleaver and Ren" - on just now searching back through these posts there are inconsistencies along the lines of posing as newbies and then inserting clear and very pertinent information and lists of links in the H.H. manner and style - I think it is all pretty funny.
A bit of collusion from Jocko too - "Without being interupted by troublemakers like Ren, Arty, Harry.....and of course............"

It seems that Harry was just a little bored, or/and wanted to try to continue giving of his generous knowlege without being viewed by eyes coloured by the bitching that has gone on regarding some of his (misinterpreted) posts in the past.

Bernard, Mr Harry has truckloads of good information - I say GET OFF HIS CASE and let him be - despite using additional aliases he has not been rude - cutting maybe, but entirely witty, and always clear in his facts.
This was just Harry's way of having a little joke - a joke on you perhaps but a sincere joke nonetheless.
I too notice an overly reactionary mode coming from you Bernard, and this has been for a while now and including long rants.
I believe Oktoberfest is near - perhaps you ought to don your Lederhosen, drink the Bier and Snapps, and find a willing Soul Madchen ?.
I say restore Harry to his previous position immediately.

Eric.

Although Im not in total agreement with Eric, I do agree that HH has been a major contributor to the (relative) success of the forum this year. I feel that banning him completely is a bit over the top.

He has broken the rules, this is understood, but he deserves consideration for his contributions. He has rarely been disruptive beyond posting a timely pic or two (usually quite funny), and I believe his input will be missed (although he had seem to be a bit bored lately). Possibly a SinBin sentence for his transgressions as RenHoak and for breaking the forum rules, but that should be sufficient.

For what its worth.

Just a question? How many other contributers has HH driven off with those acid remarks under other names?

Default ... None I expect.

Go back and search under those aliases of Harry's, and you'll find posts that are as funny as hell.

Eric.

Eric, are you implying that someone is not responsible for all of there actions, good and bad alike. Yes, Harry was at times funny. That does not forgive rude or nasty actions by anyone.

So he could be terse. Quite easy to ignore, surely.

He also obviously knows his stuff, and gave it away fairly freely (albeit not while suffering fools gladly).

I just think that there's a whole bunch of people who need to stop taking themselves or anyone quite so seriously. Y'now, irony and stuff. And I never thought that it would be, erm, Americans, who were dishing out the irony... You live and learn (I'm still laughing from Ggrand's post about language)

This place is getting very uptight, which is a shame. It always used to much freer, which was part of the joy. So why just because a few less than pious people join in, does it have to turn into a third rich with thought police, censorship, etc.

By all means chuck people for posting porn or spam, but for having a truculent nature? What next?

Mustn't forget the group hug icon

Oh dear I did

So, what's the cineatic reference in this alias Harry? I suppose
the horticultural interests in the profile are just inspired by
your other new alias as Chance the Gardener.

Thumbs up Good riddance to all trolls

and spammers.

I don't give a rip how smart anybody is or what they have to offer.

Trolls and spammers are the scourge of the internet.

How anybody can defend someone that is a troll is beyond my comprehension.

Read the posts- there was plenty of trolling. He was a lying, backstabbing, sneaky, dishonest, trouble making troll and there is no denying it. There is no honor for a troll only shame and banishment. The internet and the world would be a better place if trolls were wiped off the face of the Earth and permanently removed from the gene pool.

Trolls are absolutely despicable - Whether an EE or god's greatest gift to the audio industry - in the final analysis -

HE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A TROLL!

Banning HH will not solve anything, because if he wants to joke around, he still can (like today).

He is one of a few Enlightened and as such should stay with the forum.

I am sure that removing him from this place is not appreciated by the majority of the active members of this forum.

I, for one, will say: bring Harry back.

P. S.
By now most of you should be able to recognise his undercover appearances and treat them accordingly. So far I liked GGrant the most (especially his confusion about aligator clips ). A character like this could make a really good moderator indeed.
