As I said there was an agenda and bias there from the start, there was no chance of this ending well due to him and his posts and actions. I just reacted to what I was polluted with.

At some point a non Dunn hater with an agenda may start a forum, in which case I stand a chance of remaining a member.

They also need to be a skilled and even handed moderator...

I am talking about a new forum. Audio Talk is one of the originals. It has been around since audio forums started.

Any new forum would need to have a defining purpose / unique viewpoint...there's a lot of duplication in what's out there already.

So we can forget about Audio Addicts then. It would be better to have a non Dunn hater forum as the Dunn hater ones are well duplicated, that would be a new purpose.

I find it ok. It's got a nostalgic vibe to it that is likeable enough. Not the radical insight and clarity of purpose that I value this place for, but still worthwhile.

We have a subtly different view about the moderation there. You see bias, I see a learning curve.

'Not hating Richard Dunn' is not the catchiest name for a new forum :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perhaps it might help if Richard made himself less of a hate object ?

A lot of audio forum users don't really care about his campaigns, or his obsession with being right about everything audio.

Not my personal opinion of course. :)

Richard is not the topic of this thread.

Some of it every audio person should care about , some are personnel Bette noirs. Regardless saying he should be silent for the sake of others is facile.

Even a stroke didn't result in me liking AOS
