High End Opinions

Have you noticed that anytime someone comes on here with a strong opinion their threads get deleted.

I noticed that Sound Bloke recently made a comeback. Within 24 hours of him reappearing his posts had been deleted.

I have known sound bloke for years and he's one of the most respected professionals in the industry.

The fact that he tends to be gruff and opinionated is no reason to silence him. In fact he's bloody funny and adds a bit of lightness to this forum. It makes a nice change from the usual bunch of anoraks wanking on about pre amps and compressors. Products which strangely enough, tend to be made by manufacturers that advertise on gearsluts!

This isn't a forum it's a hype factory.

Bring back Sound Bloke - if anybody out there has read Sound Blokes posts and had a good laugh, put up a post to say "SAVE SOUND BLOKE." Let's wage a campaign.

He's Australian.

How can he be one of the most respected guys in the industry?


















Unless it's the drinking industry.











HOHOHO.







Sorry. Waiting for the band to arrive.


Losing mind.









Anyhoo. Sure. Bring him back. I didn't see any of his posts.

Sound Bloke is just an extremist jerk, and I guess that's why he got "moderated" several times. There's no way to have a constructive discussion with that kind of guy, who knows everything better than anyone and who just feels free to insult almost everyone around. I've been hating those arrogant people ever since I was in primary school, and I really don't give a damn whether they are highly respected in the industry or whatever... dfegad

There are lots of people on that forum who are generously sharing their experience with others and I've learned so much myself since one year I can't even remember how I was working before, so if you're shocked by the ads and if you do believe that Gearslutz is a "hype factory", I think you'd better save your energy for a worse injustice to fight against !...

I see that you are French and you talk about arrogance! Mhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?

Just got to say Serge Gainsbourg was god, Chateau Margaux sublime, and bourride in a harbourside cafe in Nice unbeatable!

But let's face it Jean Claude, there's not a lot of French audio gear, your cars are just one step up from wheelbarrows and as far as people go - well let's think back to Murrarowa Atol!

Did I say anything about Australian people ? I don't think so !!!...

Anyway, you can bash French people as much as you like, I've heard that before (and even worse !) and I don't care, I've travelled all over the world enough to figure that there was just about the same proportion of morons in every country... And they are always the same ignorant ones who use that kind of stupid clichés all the time !... It's freakin' scary but whatcha gonna do ?!...

I raise my beret to you !...

Olivier.

NB : by the way the right spelling is Mururoa Atoll...

Being knowledeable and being respected within an industry, plus, as in your words, the person in question "tends to be gruff and opinionated", doesn't qualify him as having the necessary communication skills usually needed to "survive" comfortably on an internet forum. Oddly enough, your response to Grizzly could put you in the same apparent dickhead category as Sound Bloke .

The French arrogant? Maybe some of us Aussies are just rude, opinionated vaginal orifices.

Have a nice day!!!

This is what the 'Moan Zone' forum is for.

Then Sound Bloke's posts should have been moved to there but instead they were just deleted! It's almost as if John Howard is moderating this forum!

So does that mean that Sound Bloke wasn't one of the most respected people in the industry? heh

I think they share the IP address because the backward land of OZ only has dial up for internet access!

yeah the odd place has broadband, but I'm amazed how little and the cost is very high.

Otherwise I have met several people out here claiming to be Sound Bloke although most of them seem to be homeless ice heads who offer shoe shine

"My guess is we'll never hear from him again"

Thinking of changing my Gearslutz handle to PomBloke, especially after last night.
Whaddya think?
heh

By the way, I'm capable of being gruff and opinionated.
Will I therefore be respected in the industry?

The only broadband I've heard of is absorbers. Am I missing something?
