    I can only presume a ban on Wigwam is not a long term thing then if someone has the title of 'most banned member ever' ?

    I did say possibly.

    What concept were you floating? If it wasn’t fettling your kit, offering free deliveries of giveaway items from Penzance to Sheffield or sweary parking stories involving a knuckle duster to the genitalia, then I could see why it wouldn’t gain any traction.

    I haven't looked at the wam for over a year and have no interest in it anymore but there are people who still like it so good for them.

    If you don't like it don't visit, I fail to see why people are bleating like spoilt brats over a forum nobody is forcing them to visit or use.

    At some point in life you have to draw a line under things and move on . Anything else is just not healthy

    The word desperation springs to mind.

    Totally agree.

    Everyone who visits any forum should realise (unless they are mega thick) that no one gives a tinkers cuss what they think. The objectivists think the subjectivist are disillusioned and vice versa. The lefties think the right wingers are self centered and vice versa. The cable enthusiasts will be arguing with each other until the day they drop. No one agrees with anyone on social media.

    I am right and you lot are useless morons. Once you accept that mantra you will remain cool and calm. If you don't accept it, you will become irritated by other peoples point of view and spend far to long on your PC.

    If one forum goes down, another will come along with the same contributors. We lot can float from one to the other like butterflies, so why worry about it.

    Wam may sink or it may swim and no one will be affected by that in any shape or form except the poor mug who tried to set it up and it's his funeral, not yours. I suspect that if it does sink, we have done the poor bugger a favour.

    Regards

    Mick

    Absolutely spot on. The clique pop up now and again on here with their poison and bile. Like I said oddballs.

    Those values went years ago imo, and you guys either fought a valiant and long term battle to revive them, or were misguided..

    maybe they don't know him..? but wonder how his return came about as I'd never heard of him on any forums for years now..

    I found this so amazing that I had to go back and look! Sure enough. Reminds me of The Ballad of Rudolf Hucker, which I wrote at the time:

    Born in the darkest depths of old UK

    Went to Sweden for floors to lay

    Laid also wife and soon there were three

    Built him a house from big long bits of tree


    Rudooooolf, Rudolf Hucker!

    Wildest hi-fi frontier!


    Got him a hi-fi and began to hear

    An obsession that was soon to cost him dear

    Hated the Sondek, of that there’s no doubt

    But needed to buy four to find it out


    Rudooooolf, Rudolf Hucker!

    Wildest hi-fi frontier!


    Told it like it was (at least in his view)

    Those who said otherwise got short shrift too

    Had enough loitering within tent

    Formed him a forum and so off he went


    Rudooooolf, Rudolf Hucker!

    Wildest hi-fi frontier!


    His forum’s the loudest and (so he says) best

    Made from folk who’re banned from all the rest

    Plus lotsa cranks and weirdos as well

    Creating an audiophool version of hell!


    Rudooooolf, Rudolf Hucker!

    Wildest hi-fi frontier!

    I don’t know who he is but that’s very good.

    He was famous (notorious?) for his hatred of the Linn Sondek, which he disparaged endlessly - but then revealed that he'd owned four of the things (sequentially, not simultaneously)! I think he ended up with an SME of some sort.

    Thank you. It's one of the Tones Hi-Fi Songbook items (there were 80 at last count!) with which I won't bore you, except with my favourite Upgrading Song:

    Dough for gear, that’s really dear

    ’Ray! From better up to best!

    Me, for me, ‘cos I can hear

    Far, far better than the rest

    So, why needled, filled with dread?

    La-tterly heard better, so

    Tee-tering on new upgrade

    Which shall bring us back to dough-oh-oh-oh
