Mr Lavry's forum is gone.
« on: November 21, 2006, 12:31:52 am »

Sad day.

But after he's been treated, completely understandable.



Bye.

Very sad news indeed. I read nearly every word he wrote.!!

You shouldn't write topics like this one, I almost blew a gasket and thought of the worst! Mr. Dan Lavry is one of those few select people that truly inspire and make this world a better place. I'm happy to know he's only gone from the forum, and nothing more serious than that...

Don't scare me like that!  Confused

Yes, why ?

And how do we access the archives ? Where is the link besides the search utility ?

There's lots of info in there, I would hate to see al the identical questions being asked to Bruno Putzeys ...

Dan's forum is in the guest moderators archive section, just below the main forums of R/E/P.

Do we get an explanation, Brad?  All I know is Dan emailed me to thank me for being a participant and said he had been given the boot.

Too bad, because I have little or no interest in the rest of the gear-crazy forums here.  The amount I have learned from Dan in his forum is amazing.

Simply put, we felt it was time to move in a different direction.

Bruno Putzys has joined us and will be able to answer the same types of questions you had for Dan. Very few people in this world posses the mixed-signal knowledge that Dan has, but Bruno is one of them. Please drop by and give Bruno a warm welcome.

I was also a frequent reader of Dan's forum.  Very sad to see the forum retired.  I learned amazing amounts from his efforts.

Thanks, Dan, for all the time you put into your forum!  It was very appreciated!

I have often wondered why the mods hated Dan so much here and insisted on trying to silence him.

For example, Fletcher has spent years bashing gear and gear companies he doesn't like (and, coincidentally, doesn't sell) and that is all well and good.  Heck, it is fine with me, he is entitled to his opinion.

Then Dan bashes Apogee because of their inability to defend their marketing claims, and drew the ire of the forum operators.  And the mods may have disagreed with his tone or methods, but the unaddressed questions to Apogee in those threads are still valid questions today as people waste thousands of dollars on clock boxes to "clean up their audio."

A year or so later, the topic is brought back to the forefront again, and BAM! he is kicked out.

I don't know about the rest of you, but the hypocrisy of the whole thing really bothers me.

It almost seems like a conspiracy to prevent Apogee from having to address the questionable claims made in their marketing materials.

I'm sure Bruno is a Smart and talented guy and He'll do a great job so, welcome to Him. Good Luck.....

Brad, am I to understand that Dan was ASKED to leave? Over this Business with this Max clown? and Fletcher, who I think is a great great cat but who I think over stepped? Is this because a certain digital Audio company is not happy? I'm not accusing, simply asking.

Ya know, I certainly don't have to worry about it much and the whole place could go away and my life would change very little, even though I love it around here sometimes. Looking back on the choices made, It puzzles me. Perhaps running one of these joints is harder than I think.

Dan Lavry is a man who loves the truth. People like him are harder and harder to find and it wont be long and they'll all be gone for real. Read what he has to say about Engineering. Not only as it relates to "how to do this or that" but, as in, " What does being an engineer mean. It's a way of thinking about the world that fewer and fewer people grasp.

I will miss having him here big time.

R/E/P simply made the decision to go in a different direction.

And no, this is not a reaction to the Apogee thread, there are other circumstances that made us decide to go in a different direction. For those interested, Dan has his own forum at the Lavry website where he continues to share his experience.
