Re: The Audio Forum

We certainly each choose our own reaction to what is written about us. I would never seek to deny anyone that freedom.

Re: AoS

For the general membership there, it is a relatively easy thing to get away with. NVA is niche, many may not even notice that it is missing from daily conversation let alone that it is banned from being mentioned. Even if they did, would they 'die in a ditch' over it? From what I have seen in my (re...

Re: AoS

Marco has deliberately created a scenario where it is very hard for anyone who posts at AOS to post here, and vice versa. He has effectively said 'you choose one or the other'. Censorship - it is a more effective tactic for him than libel and self combustion. The only surprise is that it took him so...

Re: The Audio Forum

Regarding piss-taking / banter / ridiculing, I generally go with the idea that if we give it out (as several of us do, now and then, on EOTW) then we shouldn't be shocked / upset / pious if we get a bit back. My disappointment is that the banter from there is of such a poor standard.
