In the Black Beard introductory thread Fruitcake gives his reasons for deleting the Wam thread, after saying he did not have time to moderate. The Wam thread was removed shortly after I reported the forum to pro boards with specific reference to what was posted in that thread today. Coincidence? Fruitcake then goes on to say that there is only one person who has been refused admission to his site because he has never posted anything of value on any forum. That is bound to be me. :lol: Of course Rudi, Jammy and Black Beard always make valuable contributions. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: . Biased criteria for entry as well as biased moderation.

His last attempt at a forum was taken down after complaints to pro boards, including from me. We need to keep an eye on this shameful mk2, it is easy to notify pro boards of inappropriate content.

The moment when Westie decided he only had time to moderate the posts that didn't fit his own preferences...

ProBoards came back to me for further information. I advised them that the thread had been removed but said that similar content was likely to reappear and they should keep an eye on the site.

Fruitcake says the site is for discussions about hifi only, but what has Black Beard posted about hifi on Wam? F... All. He was allowed to join to provide fuel for the likes of Rudi and Jammy. If anyone has any doubts about Fruitcakes feeling s towards the Doc and members of HFS they should see my post at the bottom of page 20 of this thread.

This agenda aside, the setting up of a forum is an exercise in verbal masturbation so he can spout :Bllocks: about the amount of equipment he has owned. :lol:

Fruitcake has started a thread/poll on whether mention of NVA should be banned. :lol: :lol: :lol:
The only sense on his funny farm of a forum is posted by members of HFS.

With the stupidity and nastiness I have seen there he would be doing me / us a favour. That would be half the membership being snakeoilies, what would they find to talk about, apart from how rich and wonderful Rudi is..

I can't be bothered to look there after today which was gang up day on any NVA users, poor Dave is seriously upset by Bigman's lies and rudeness, Bigman really is a champion arse, but it seems Macca and Westie want to stick up for him, so the bias created means there is no point on any of us being there. Just let it be a polluted snakeoil outhouse.

There really isn't any support for banning NVA. I don't get the idea that NVA owners attack any criticism. Usually the other way round.

Fruitcake has decided that mention of NVA should be allowed, but any follow up posts will be removed. This in effect allows Bigboy, or anyone else with a similar agenda, to say what they like about an NVA product without a right of reply. It is worse than AOS.

It is effectively what AoS used to be. That place is so insignificant with so few members we really shouldn't pay it any attention. I am not from now on, it is pointless reading there or snakeoil, they want us to read them and comment I am coming to the conclusion, it is the only activity they have.
