So why try and make a foo thread here, just send it back with a covering letter.

Reality IS that you have / had an agenda regarding me and my attitudes, you have proved it in attacking me consistently over the last couple of months here when ever a thread opportunity arose, it is here in black and white so it is your reality as well. This confusion of yours over reality is behind the diminishing quality of foo fighter too.
Threads are used to place orders and to record receipt of funds, dispatch of item, delivery etc. I had automatically assumed that you operated the same way with repairs. It would seem like basic good practice. Reality is that it's a massive jump to assume that my mentioning a repair is part of some campaign of attack. No problem, though, I will mention it no more.

I will not be attempting to change your your attitude. That would be a futile endeavour, by your own advice...and I have more important things to do. Foo Fight is ridiculous about the ridiculous, it only responds. On this occasion, though, the truth is probably stranger than satire...

I don't know why you two don't let it drop before one of you says something you later come to regret. Some of the Foo Fight pieces are wonderful though.

I am going on your performance on the forum over the last couple of months on that basis it is very possible.

See you can't resist, the last sentence is at it again. Get off my back.

AND Nigel, once again I didn't start it. It is like being nagged by an irritating wife. I will say what needs to be said until it stops, or I have to boot him. The ball is at his feet. FF has been great fun but he is now using it to tell lies about me and this forum, that I will not allow without comment. He packs it up and we are back to day one, piss take is fine lies are not.

People have to realise I have had over 30 years of this, first from being largely blocked for retailers by the flat earth Linn Naim and other large companies like Cyrus *illegally* tying up retailers turnovers with illegal contracts to block out competitors, and no way to counter it apart from a couple of letters to Inside Hi-Fi trade magazine that just got me lies and insults, and so it started. When I discovered a way because of the web to bypass the powers that be in 2005 by going direct I became the number one enemy, just by saying on line at forums what we have had to put up with and how I am countering it. Being called a liar, insulted, libelled, personally and the company, having to put up with brainwashed eeeediots who cannot see the wood for the trees and the egotists self appointed gurus who know feck all in reality like Marco trying to put the company and me down because I correct him and win argument over what is reality. The whole thing has been pathetic, BUT I am happy being small with good and appreciative customers, it gives me pleasure to give them their music - the rest of the eeediots can go feck themselves unless they open their minds and try it for themselves.

OK rant over - for now.

Surely the whole point of Foo Fight (as with most satire) is that it's based on an exaggerated version of reality, and so by its very nature isn't true. An entirely truthful Foo Fight wouldn't be funny.

It is like a hifi equivalent of Spitting Image. Maggie Thatcher was the main character in the fiering line and seemed to relish the publicity.

Satire is not lies, it is playing with the truth, it is bending it, taking the piss out of it, that I welcome and have NO OBJECTION TO. My problem is Savvy developed a personal agenda regarding me and has strayed into downright lies - that I will not accept.
