Tbg, I laughed out loud at your post on the reasons behind your firing. Thanks for that!
On the one hand, you warn people about taking reviewers seriously. While on the other, even in admitting to being relieved at your being thrown out, give the impression that if they didn't, you would not have stepped down, we'd still be getting BS'd by you. I'm left wondering if you warn us about about the credibility of reviewers because you who were fired and did not resign, have none yourself.
To be sure, this isn't the first meatball of a contradiction you've thrown right down the middle of the plate for us to whack out of the park, and I'm confident neither will it be the last.
Surprisingly enough (not), there's more than a little revisionist history around Tbg's account of being kicked to the curb. Thankfully, he doesn't get to write the history books without others getting equal time.
While Tbg lists his criticism of the Gryphon amplifier as the reason, most of us following along at home will instead recall it seemingly being the out and out impropriety regarding he and the Tidal loudspeakers themselves. Let's remember back to that thread, shall we? He announces his love and devotion after several auditions of the speakers at RMAF2009. Along with that, he told everyone he was moving ahead on a purchase. Nothing wrong with any of that. But, he couldn't help also announcing that a review would be appearing in Soundstage at some point in the future; the implication and/or worry being that it would be over the top glowing.
That's when a bunch of folks here raised the red flag for the obvious reason - a classic case of "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours."
Displaying to everyone's exasperation, including Tidal devotees and those more closely allied with the operation (folks who took the right road and deserve to be commended for it), that he missed his true calling in life (obviously be politics), he never backed off an inch. We all know there was no shortage of discussion on the matter at the time. With all of the other things they have to stay up at night worrying about, I'm sure that incident was the last thing Soundstage wanted. And, so Sounstage did the obvious thing, and a slot opened up for an aspiring (hopefully, more ethical) reviewer to get his or her chance.
Now, Synergistic has the chance to be soiled by Tbg. Hopefully, like Tidal and Soundstage, they'll figure out a way out before they get too much crap on them.
