Good, Bad or Indifferent, Harry's presence and perspective make this forum more enjoyable for many of us. If some don't like it, tough beans. We are very capable of weeding through the chaff ourselves when necessary. For the naysayers and haters, with little to no respect, please go waste your time somewhere else! :twisted:

Ban PE and bring Harry back. Can we do a poll?

I like PE's forum contribution when he stays on topic but he has a Real tough time not turning his post into a personal attack against VPI and Harry. Not sure why he has such a counter productive agenda.

I don't think that anyone doubts that Phoenix made great products. I certainly don't, and I wish they still made them.

VPI and Phoenix have very different design philosophies, and each is absolutely convinced of its own correctness and superiority. That polarity (to use an electronics term) was part of the reason why it was difficult for them to stay on topic. They simply talked past one and other. There were other reasons as well, which are pretty easy to understand.

While the VPI and Phoenix exchanges were sometimes frustrated, heated and angry, I don't think any of them could be considered truly "hateful". Nor do I now recall that any of the members' posts fell into that category. I think the "ADS thread" was terminated mainly because everything of substance that could have been said, had been said, and it was pointless to continue to stir the ashes.

In any case, let's not import the controversy of that earlier thread into this thread, which has an entirely different subject matter and a somewhat humorous bent. Let's also not confuse criticism and frustrated differences of opinion with naysaying and hate. Instead, let's refocus this thread on the topic at hand. Rich

Did you read the post by PE in this thread?! What you are saying makes absolutely no sense...at all. The whole point of this thread is that it sucks that Harry doesn't post here any more. The reason he doesn't is because of crap like the post in question. Unbelievable.

Tim, Of course I read Phoenix's post. I don't find it hateful or "crap". I do find it critical, opinionated and probably resentful, none of which is particularly offensive to me. However, Phoenix's comments are misplaced, and don't belong in this thread, which, as you note, deals with an entirely separate topic.

I haven't been told that my observations, here or elsewhere, "make absolutely no sense at all" in quite a long time--possibly, ever. I don't find that rebuke hateful or crap either, but I do find it discourteous, and its somewhat consistent with Phoenix's otherwise erroneous remark concerning Harry's "adoring fans".

If you actually believe that Harry is deterred from posting in the Forum because of caustic posts such as Phoenix's, then you don't know Harry very well. He's a dyed-in-the-wool entrepreneur, who has built a highly-successful Company making internationally respected products in the face of stiff competition from larger, established manufacturers and against very high odds. He's got big balls.

I've expressed my views. Now, you've said your piece. We should move on with the original subject of this thread. Rich

Hey all, no worries on the missing Harry... he is alive and well. Some things have been happening on the back end, all good, but has been a positive distraction (more news on that much later). In fact, I will include a secret message when that news comes up that directly relates to this thread.

Was there something about an echo or was someone just breaking wind? :lol:
