Really Missing Harry's occasional "Bombs" and "Tweets" here

Postby Letsmakeadeal » Sat Jul 08, 2017 3:41 pm

Anyone besides me finding this place a little bit boring without Harry's more frequent participation? I would like to start a petition to seek Harry's pop in participation at least once a week in a semi live thread called "Coffee with Harry" Don't know if he would want to play? but I think it might be fun and educational. Anyone else like the idea? :D

I had noticed as well that Harry hasn't been on the forum much lately. I really miss Harry's post as well. I really appreciate improvements and advancements such as the dual pivot point, etc . I also like Harry's passion for this hobby which makes things better for all of us.

Maybe things like the ads thread put a damper on Harry's perticipation. If you read that forum topic which was shut down it's fully understandable. Hopefully Harry will participate more. Your input has been missed.

Letsmakeadeal "Coffee with Harry" sounds like a great idea, if Harry is willing to do it!

I like the idea, but what is the difference between Harry's corner and coffee with Harry??

@ Johnny

Hopefully periodic and pre-announced "Harry appearances" at scheduled times for members to interface with "his Excellence" directly in a structured chat like format....Asking too much???? Probably :?:

You want him back, just post some really negative comments about the ADS or something else in Harry's Corner, and hang on for the ride. Rich

It would probably be fun and interesting as long as the number of participants is kept to a reasonable number for each session....Don't know if their Forum will accommodate limiting a thread to say 10 members by ID or not? If so, interested parties could sign up in advance???

I know, I am going nuts here.... :?


What you're describing sounds a lot like an echo chamber...Harry talking and his adoring fans listening and not questioning. I find it interesting that it doesn't seem to matter to you that a number of things Harry has said on the forums are just plain wrong (I have plenty of examples if you're interested). When someone questions VPI's logic or posts easily verifiable measurements that contradict their assertions, they don't seem to have much of an answer other than to promise a response (which never comes), run to the safety of listening tests, or to rant like a mad man at the messenger.

I don't think you have long to wait for the echo chamber you desire. With the deletion, locking and editing of threads, this forum is already there.....
