    Actually, my speaker system is my profile picture, and I also include a website where you can see a ton of pictures, my gear, as well as samples of audio I have actually produced.

    I don't mind people getting banned, especially for valid reasons. In my case, no reason was given, still has not been given. I took time in my day, as we all do, to try to legitimately contribute to various things - and I did so with this site as well. My, what others have sited as 'walls of posts' were me being informative, providing actual content, and looking to stir a bit of philosophical conversation. I'm also an open resource for anybody that wants to speak to an actual working professional audio engineer - a dialog on both sides of the fence - since I presume people on this site are impassioned listeners, would be helpful and interesting.

    As I said, still no reason whatsoever for being banned, many people came and msg'd me saying they feel confused as well, and wanted to hear more. I even went so far as to try to write to the ops - the main contact email at the bottom of the forum page is outdated, still listed as changstar, and no other contact is available.

    Like I said, I don't mind the ban, and I feel there are legitimate reasons for it - I just wish I had been given the respect to have received one.

    An no, I am NOT rich. I just invested in the things I loved instead of buying that fancy car. I also buy and sell gear - I owned two Orpheus systems, both of which I sold for much more than I bought them for.

    Wait, is this paid for with the money you got via defrauding investors? It looked like your SEC fine was pretty pathetic given the shenanigans.

    You should research things better before you post something of which you have absolutely no knowledge of. You seem like a a bitter man. That SEC fine was pathetic because it never should have existed in the first place. But this isn't the forum for that - but as an admin I guess you would know that. Also this all occurred 11 years ago.

    It looks like there are people on this message board who are personally threatened by my existence. Lets take direstraitsfan98 for example... disliking posts robotically.

    This is a virtual dive bar. Instagram is down the street.

    Please read the "rules" for new members.

    If it's a dive bar then why was a I banned for speaking my mind? Seems like a virtual club for a bunch of trolls hiding behind screens. The thread is called 'pictures of your speaker system'. So yes, this IS an instagram thread. And also, I was asked to post some pictures... and I HAVE read the rules for new members.

    Because you know what your talking about right now... why don't you speak to me in person? Scared?

    Call me, let's go - I'm sure you can find my number with your deft internet trolling skills.

    I never get into these discussions as they usually go nowhere. I have known @zerodeefex in real life since we both got into this hobby, years ago. Bitter man? How you dare you say that! He is just trying to keep people like you out of here. He’s a generous, kind and honest person. Are you? This is all I am going say, I don’t think we are your kind of place.

    Do you think I care that you know what I look like? That’s a joke. Everybody knows what I look like in my scene and part of the world. And Yes I am looking for you.

    Explanation: rule #7. Not understanding local customs. Bad fit. Nothing personal.

    I don't like the slack admin channel and members texting me about your actions on what should be a restful Saturday afternoon.

    As a great guru once taught me: not a matter of being right or wrong, it's a matter of getting along.

    I'm pissing my pants. Come say hi if you find me, just don't come to regret it later and don't say you weren't warned.

    You were banned originally because several mods requested it and something didn't sit right. Your walls of texts were a lot for a new user, the "I'm not rich but I live in Los Gatos, have a wealthy family and have tens of thousands of dollars of audio equipment" schtick is just disingenuous and you were overall a smug asshole.

    I actually can agree that you shouldn't be defined by shit that went down a decade or more ago, but your glib reply solidifies that you probably don't take ownership for your actions. I mean, Forbes must totally report incorrectly and your fine was the man keeping a rich Desi kid from the Bay Area down.

    This "I'm being attacked, the world is against me, nothing's my fault" attitude doesn't jive with the community we've built here. I've made mistakes and openly admitted them and so have other mods and admins. Regulars like @Psalmanazar have pissed off 3/4 of the forum, been banned, came back with a fresh perspective and is super respected. Clearly you are the kind of person who is always right in your own mind; the victim of whatever persecution is convenient in the moment.
