Interesting survey to see what you think. Marco *created* the final NVA thread based on lies to create the excuse to ban any mention of NVA on AoS. This was purely done out of spite because we take the piss out of him, and his desire to hurt me and NVA.

So who has been harmed - I have seen no loss of business, I think my technical credibility has gone up enormously over this period due to Bake-Offs and customer reviews and comments, with absolutely no sign of the Marco lies being a reality.

So who has been harmed - AoS has seen a loss of credibility and is now seen to censor debate, it has become less and less about hi-fi apart from the shill and spam games and more about what you had for breakfast etc

That is my opinion what is yours.

Lying is too simplistic . There an awful lot of people at aos who have an alternative truth.

The situation as been good for nva because ultimately there is truth, who's ever it may be, as to admit the product is good.
Even a stroke didn't result in me liking AOS

Marco chose to make 'war' and found that he could not win. A more intelligent person would have given up much earlier.

The NVA ban is his admission that he is unable to moderate both his forum and himself.

There is no damage to NVA.

The 'NVA ban page' at AOS shows up very nicely in Google results and regularly sends visitors to HFS (probably also to NVA).

So, Hi-fi Subjectivist is the equivalent of Frankie Goes to Hollwood's Relax?
And Marco is the equivalent of Mike Read?


Or are we the equivalent of Ken Dod's I'm Always Chasing Rainbows?
With Marco as the BBC?

Or HFS is The Sex Pistols' 'God Save The Queen'...
...and Marco is the un-elected figurehead of a failed and outdated institution.

I don't think you suffer by not being on any hostile forum. It's easier to keep a good rep elsewhere if one doesn't bathe in dirty water.

Forum users go to multiple sites, ultimately they build a picture up for themselves. Life's easier if they can only find good things said about a brand online.

Nonsense, you if anyone should know what started this over 10 years ago, with me telling the truth about this industry (especially Linn Naim) on forums, and being attacked. Look now at people opinions now most people agree with me and see the truth, but has that altered the position regarding me - NO, this was never anything about NVA that just got caught up in the shit, it has always been about ME.

Anyway with our history it would be better if you stayed away from comment on this subject.

EDIT - looks like I misinterpreted your post, but anyway I will let the above stand as it needed saying.
