    Agreed. It's not like Trurl or RCarlberg were banned either. Their's is a self-imposed exile. I've never had a problem with those who get banned because they've usually earned it.

    I liked Trurl. Funny dude. Musician, intelligent, down to earth, and a hell of a sense of humor.

    Hear Hear! It was always amusing to follow his relentless criticism regarding the reverence of certain audio technology myths!

Jeff Carney comes to mind. I learned a hell of a lot from his posts and had some pleasant private conversations with him. At other times, he had this mile-high soapbox that he'd get on that I found rather distasteful after a short while. I can say the same thing overall with RC. I can simply ignore the endless sparring in the digital vs. analog threads without needing to call in the moderators. The bulk of his posts I found to have depth of insight and merit. Then there are the bad-intent Jegheist types who clearly relish crossing the line and seem to come here for no other reason than to cause disruption.
    Jeff was cool. Yeah, he opined at length, and at will, but the dude's a die-hard Sabbath fan, which makes him alright in my book. Didn't realize he'd split for good.

    I had no issue with Robert. He wrote for Electronic Musician in the '80s and I understood his viewpoints even if I didn't agree with them. He also collaborated with Kerry Leimer ages ago.

    My favorite thing about that album has always been that side two is 19 minutes and 63 seconds in length...

    Congratulations Brian. You're the first person to notice that... or at least mention it in public.

    In fact, there are a few in-jokes and numerous esoteric references on the back cover. The front cover and website was all Chain's doing, tho.

    I certainly don't miss that here.
    Anyone get the feeling he has returned under a new name?

    Nope - he's way too obvious to be mistaken.

    He's not doing anything that would merit removal. I believe in 2nd chances, so not advocating anything either. But...predeliction for Eastern European Prog. ..check. Lots of Bandcamp links...check. Lots of YouTube videos...check. You know the old saying - If it walks like a Svetonio, quacks like a Svetonio,...it's probably a Svetonio.

    I believe in second chances too, and I believe I know the poster you speak of.

    I looked in the new releases thread - yep, same MO. The Hoffman crew must be breathing a sigh of relief.
