Interesting that there has been support for HFS from AOS members and the continued opposition from Marco and the mods. I note that Marco is demanding that this thread is removed that Savvy 'comply' with decent bloke status before any NVA/RD/HFS ban is removed over there. It has created more discussion about these subjects than in the previous few months.
I agree with DQ in some respects that contains important historical information but I feel that it now mostly serves as an outlet for those who have been banned by Marco to have a dig back at him. I have to admit that I haven't been banned at AOS or received threatening emails from him so I don't know what it is like to be effected by them. But I do know that holding onto grudges never did me any good and I felt better once I was able to move on. I don't think allowing this thread to continue really helps anyone to do that. Yes it is good to vent your frustration in the immediate aftermath but not for it to fester for years after.
I think it would be wrong to remove the thread but perhaps it is time that it is closed as a compromise. If that's not good enough for Marco then so be it. Will Marco be removing all negative comments about NVA etc at AOS if this thread does get removed?
Of course the decision ultimately lies with the new owner but I for one would like to see us move on.
I understand what you are saying Quarknosis, the trouble is that the the nasty comments have spread over so many threads/posts that it seems to be an impossible task to delete/close all the offending material. Also, like DQ, I am not a fan of rewriting history.

I agree that history shouldn't be rewritten which is why I suggested to close rather than delete the thread.
I was banned for typing “Not Very Amicable” on a thread, and then for “bad mouthing” Marco over here.
I am at the point of giving up on HiFi forums anyway, so don’t really care.

Nope, no-one has forgotten! They are still there, fresh as a daisy.
