    Shut up John.....

    How'd you end up on everyone's dump on list? Maybe I'm a bad judge of character. I thought you were a pretty good guy. Except for driving a bucket truck to go bar hopping. Has that been a big hit with the chicks?

    Hey! Did you go to Axpona? If so, you drove right past me. I'm in Seymour Indiana.

    Great tribute to Skip's room. That room alone was worth the trip to AXPONA.

    There is no need for a moderator.

    Thank you for your thoughts on the situation. However, I politely disagree.

    At the very least, a moderator is needed to remove spam posts. And also, ideally, to enforce egregious and obvious violations of the forum's rules and guidelines.

    Forum moderators can also serve to prevent rules violations before they occur, and also defuse tense situations or arguments.

    I've been posting on forums for over 20 years and in my experience, good moderators are a positive thing.

    Yeah like the accidentally wishing death on people. That should be moderated. LOL

    So... FWIW, and realizing that this might not be the best idea I've had all day*, there's a thread not unlike this one over at https://hifihaven.org/index.php?threads/axpona-chicago-april-12-14-2019.4224/
    (the show action starts ca. p.4)

    Offered strictly as-is and FWIW, for entertainment purposes only :)

    I will likewise post a link to this thread there. :|

    * And considering one of my other ideas involved relocating a starling that had become trapped in our fireplace and resulted in the dispersal of a not insignificant amount of fine ash in and around said fireplace -- that's saying something B)

    FWIW, that's Ron from NewRecordDay on YouTube (he likes to speak about himself in the 3rd person). Ron is a professional audio reviewer like Sean at Zero FIdelity and Steve Guttenberg at CNet.

    Tony isn't flipping you off, after his troubles with the "family" the middle fingers are all he has left...
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Krell Evolution 505 SACD Player, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.
