That for me is the removal of the quarantine insult, nothing else, nothing else matters until this is solved. It is a declaration of war, same as it was at TAS. I would prefer to be banned by him at least that would have some honesty in it, then everyone knows where he stands, this is just an insult.

If I am banned it is an admission that he cannot cope with the truth.

It always helps to go back to the beginning in order to find THE TRUTH as time throws so much mud around. Sooooo, my first post after the silly intro one was to ask Macca if I would be able to talk to him on the forum as I had been ignored by him in email and PM at HFS. I wanted to know his take on why he had hi-jacked my phono stage bake off. His reply was why did I ask, I replied as above that he had been ignoring me. He then went off with a tirade of insults about Marco and AoS, please note I hadn't brought either into the conversation nor had I insulted him. I replied in kind, and my post was removed but the original one was left up by Westie. So you see the BIASED MODERATION is there from the start. This created a pattern and it just carried on via Bigman, and then the snakeoilaudio knob heads arrived and joined in and so it escalated to the stooooopid situation we have now with me being in quarantine just because I defended myself and my company from libel and insult.

Fair, far from it in my opinion, but this bollocks seems to follow me around.

If I had been moderating then I would have removed both your post to Macca and his response...and told you both to deal with it by private message. If left public, it was obvious that others with an agenda against either of you would jump in to try to create personal conflict. Andrew did remove the original posts, and the subsequent ad-hominem from others, the next morning, following an exchange with yourself and some feedback from myself. A much longer delay than desirable but the right outcome in the end. Where you see bias, I see a man on a steep learning curve.

You asked Macca a straightforward, personal question, he gave you a straightforward, personal answer.

No he didn't, what forum have you been reading. I repeat, and it is still there not removed, or it was yesterday.

THE TRUTH

And so it starts, lies and misinformation I now have no right to correct.

From Docfoster - "Regarding the circuit for NVA amps. Someone once told me that it was based on a John Linsley Hood design."

Untrue and made up on a forum as a FUD per usual, no one asked me and no one checked for the truth per usual. It has NOTHING in common with LH design apart from being solid state. I have posted here about the design and how it came about, but per usual people prefer lies.

I have just looked for Macca's original insulting and libelous post that started this. I can no longer find it, so my request for fair moderation has AT LAST happened, so having finally complied with my requests including removing of most of the later ones, you have obviously decided I was right, so where is the motivation for my quarantine and then ban now.

I have moved these threads here to form the start of a thread for what wil hopefully be a future Firebottle/NVA beke off or bakeoffs.

Whether, when, where and how this happens will be down to the protagonists. This thread is to facilitate any arrangements or discussion and is only here for posts that help move things forward. It’s not for regurgitating the past and it’s certainly not for dragging other people into the fray. It needs to stay on topic. I won’t be as tolerant of any nonsense here, in fact I will be completely intolerant, so please don’t go there.

For my part, I have tried to help because a bake off was offered and it was accepted. I’d therefore like to see it happen because that seems fair to me. That’s as much as need to be said about how we got to here. Let’s now focus on the future and not the past.

If those involved prefer to conduct discussions via PM here, of by other means. all good by me. I’m simply providing a space and opportunity.

*******************************************************************************************************************

So you kill any possibility of solving it there by banning me - good intelligent move !

AA would be virtually dead without posts from members of HFS. NVA is bound to come up in discussion and to ban or put in the stocks the owner, for whatever reason, makes no sense.
