He is on AA. "FatCuntTroller" (Sold London Bridge).
Also, I notice PFP is late submitting accounts for Hifi Global (formerly Hifi Wigwam) to Companies House.

Ah, thank I will look out for him. I tease him but FFS sake he is / was far better than PFP.

Naughty and not for the first time. Otherwise the company would be in his name and not that of his partner.

The place as a forum has so much potential, it is not completely ruined, but it is while PFP is in charge. IF in the old days, as I tried to nag him to do, the FatCuntTroller had applied an ad hominem rule like ours it would have controlled the in-crowd and the bullying, sadly he was not an admin he was part of the problem, so its death was an inevitable if a somewhat drawn out affair.

There is so much good vibe about its history, but also somewhat divisive with lovers and haters depending on if you became a victim of the bullying.

I would admin it with pleasure (incognito if poss) with no input from me apart from admin, it needs someone like that. Piss Stained Blanket is (and was) the last person to do it, and he has been a major cause of its demise under both owners. All the admin and mods need to be sacked, they are now all tainted with the same brush.

We will see, at the moment it is going nowhere but down the commercial toilet that has been created of it.

So changes have started. Members have been listened to, Well done Womers.

Where is the Welcome page. DQ did an excellent analysis of activity there. How is DQ doing BTW? I met a solicitor myself this week, d’accord an agreeable chap.

I'm surprised no one here has mentioned the mod clear out including duvet.

They need to reinstate banned members like myself, who did nothing wrong except argue with Pinky when he was on his electrical safety soapbox and Ynwan about speakers and the EU regs, re combustible materials. At no point was there any bad language or ad hom from me but I was/am a member of HFS and it was that that Duvet couldn't handle.

I was banned for suggesting NVA should exhibit at a Wam show and commenting on the real review of the Linn streamer. I said it is a rip off, which it is.

Hadn't noticed, it had gone off my radar, who is in charge now, has anything really changed.

EDIT - looks just the same to me.
