no clue why it would or wouldn't bother you...
anyways the "quote"
and subsequent message
was intended for crochambeau
I was led to believe that you were wanting to walk away from this discussion. Was that in err?
I have no interest in delving into your philosophy or ensnaring myself in circular rhetorical arguments.
Just so we're clear here, I didn't go anywhere that the full context of this discussion isn't already based in. The character assassination I referred to earlier is that of the subject to this thread. You seem happy to draw that out, so be it. Your own advice as directed at me regarding such things is evenly applicable, and since I have a distinct impression that anything I say will be filtered or otherwise malformed I'm making the decision to extricate myself from the conversation.
I do feel that kicking M770R while they are not contributing to this thread is less than sporting, but there I go with that touchy feely shit again.

were you making custom noise machines 17+ years ago?
"someone" used to frequently mention you back then
if memory is correct
semi random guess
Highly unlikely you're thinking of the same individual. While I have been involved in building and modifying gear on a personal level for longer than that, there's a vanishingly small chance we're associated by anything beyond these boards. My reference to meeting you goes back to the Stonehenge thread on maniacs, whereupon I admit I may have been quick to file your identity into a certain class of individual (based on the way you comport yourself and frame text, not by an assumption on my part of an alignment) and everything so far has simply reinforced my observation.
So there's that. I'm happy to be completely done here and wash my hands of it. However, as uninvolved as I prefer to be, when erosive sentiment is directed at members of this world-wide community with whom I have enjoyed mutually respectful dialog, I will happily raise a voice of disagreement.
That is, as you seem to have put it, my agenda.
Allow me the enjoyment of some unsolicited advice: if delving into a personal history is distasteful to you, it may serve you well to cease referencing it. If you're trying to weave a background of credibility, it's clear you don't need to posture and flex in that regard, given genuinely useful threads; and when you do so anyway the concept of agenda tends to peek through.
Don't bother with a wall of replies to this, as I am not going to pop back in on this thread...
...unless someone directs my attention here, which could belie an artifice of position.
Please also forgive my indulgence in condescension, I couldn't help it after wading through your own.
