Forget the thread it originates with Marco's desire to shit on a burning nva amp to see if it puts it out. He loves his shit and hates nva, so he saw a winner.

BTW the mods told me they know that Marco has a sock puppet at Wigwam (having been banned three times), shall we start a competition of who we think it is.

It seems WamWas has fallen apart. Been hour glassing since last night. It’s broken.

Hifi Global (was Wigwam) is now five months overdue with filing its annual accounts. After 6 months the fine reaches the maximum of £1500.

Companies House will be making moves to shut them down soon.

They should be able to put up a redirect screen to say that maintenance is taking place, though...

Not much point hiding behind an alt when the same ban amnesty applied to everyone.
