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.
There seems to be a fair spread from across different forums.

Of the 17 members online there in the last 24 hours, 4 of the 17 regularly post here - myself, Shane, Richard (now banned, sadly) and Classic.

It shows he had an agenda from the start.

What he is saying is without us the forum would be dead, apart from the loony Rudi, and he only arrived after we (mostly me) motivated him again.

The most informed posts seem to come come from HFS members.

AND the ones that stimulated the most nasty rude and malicious responses.

just let the ridiculous place drift off into obscurity. Without us they have nothing of any consequence, so my advice is ignore, they don't deserve any support after this performance of how to be biased.

Let us show them what a proper forum is.

I joined early on and had some "banter" with Rudi about his mortgage etc and was subsequently banned, as I believe he was too. He is back but I'm still banned. Make of that what you will.....

Try rejoining (if you wish to rejoin) with a slightly different username, e.g. '38scotty'...

This goes some way to explaining his attitude towards the Doc and members of HFS.

http://theaudiostandard.net/thread/4032 ... ck-ravioli

I can see the humour, but I feel something has to be said. This thread and so many others are being driven by a prolific "internet stalker" who displays an unhealthy obsession with Martin and other notable forum personas. He drives debates and stirs up his cabal of sycophants to post his opinions and comments on here.

He and his disciples are the first to make unfounded accusations against others, yet expect to be able to spam his wares here and elsewhere with impunity.

Until TAS finds a way to cut his influence from the forum, it will be hampered from its goal of being a friendly place to discuss our passion for our shared interests. A banned former member should have no influence whatsoever here.

In short, there is an elephant in the room that we all can smell, who constantly gets in everyone's way but whom nobody wants to recognise the presence of. If we wanted to be part of his agenda and discussions, I'm sure there's a place we could all go to in order to do that.

Personally I want no part of this toxic troll or his agendas in my life. If that means not visiting this forum in order to avoid his presence, then that's a step I will reluctantly take. It's a great forum with the nicest and most decent owners you could find, but there's an awful smell of shit in here and I need some fresh air.


Shortly after this he set up his own forum.

Some months prior to this, under yet another username, he had a go at me on PFM following one of my posts, referring to something I had posted here. This is before I was banned from PFM of course.
