    If you really want to make amends you should delete your negative comments and let the moderators clean up the threads accordingly.Both here and on Steronet.
    ok no worries at all.

    To all moderators on this forum: Steve and Ron and others who are responsible for content, could you kindly delete the initial post I have made at the beginning, including the "apology post", which Jono here seems to admit is not good enough...

    Therefore, please delete all posts I have made, perhaps that may suit better, I don't know.

    Jono; I was thinking if you want me to delete the original post, might as well delete the apology statements also, since others may get confused as to "why" I'm apologizing...

    If you have a better suggestion, please advise.

    Cheers and enjoy the rest of your time here.

    G'day Jono,

    I had immediately posted a reply on Stereonet, asking for the Admin person to delete my post and follow your instructions: Here was Marc's reply-

    I don't know Jono (or if he's a member here), and any comments made on another website are not really an issue for me/StereoNET.
    I believe you're entitled to your opinion, positive or negative.

    Personally, I felt it was very unbalanced, at least initially, but isn't discussion and debate what forums are for?
    I'm happy leave it as is, and have no interest in what goes on on other forums.

    Well it seems that he really doesn't know you... any advise mate?
    RJ

    ATTN: Steve & Ron

    G'day gentlemen;

    as noted above, I have followed Jono's request and tried to make "amends"... but they seem futile simply as stated as the site Admin/moderator on Stereonet, Marc will not be amending anything.

    Therefore, please do whatever you both feel would be appropriate, as it seems that my statement of apology wasn't adequate to make amends... therefore I respect whatever you and Ron may decide as a final decision, if you need to delete my posts, please do so.

    Thanks for all the help and support, cheers and have a good one.

    Well you can just edit out what you have posted using the edit button at the bottom of every post and enter something like -content edited.
    Then the moderators will have to tidy up the replies too-which is what they have to do quite often anyway.
    We have all said some things we regret later so do not fret about it too much but I think editing yourself it is usually the best approach.

    Jono,

    Sorry mate I won't be doing that. As noted by Marc, I respect his final decision/s

    I also respect Steve and Ron's decisions, as I have been a member on this forum for many years... I will stand by what they decide, hence they haven't replied to me as yet.

    "Regret" ? why should I regret anything... those statements were made in pure honesty and transparency. Like I said for the hundredth time, I "admit" some of my statements were harsh to those who are sensitive about the show and sensitive in general....

    If anything it should be Marc who I should be having this chat to, not you! You do you think you are mate?

    As respect, I accepted you and Trevor's feedback, and so I made a SINCERE apology in writing! If that isn't good enough, then perhaps forums like these aren't good enough for you mate.

    I don't have time to be editing, I have an actual life! As I said before, I will only respect what Steve and Ron decided to do.
    Enough of this, I certainly tried...

    Take it easy, there are people in other parts of the world who are going through some very very hardships- Syria, Yemen, Rohinga Refugee's etc. My father of 84, just went across to the Northern parts of these areas to help out with a Unesco project, and I have also donated some humble amount to a very valuable cause...

    Editing some silly remarks I made, seriously mate, wake up and move on!

    I am sorry you feel like that.
    Marc from Stereonet is not likely to remove your comments because he also runs the hi fi show and doing so could be seen as censorship.
    We went for many years with no hi fi shows in Australia so I feel we should do what we can to encourage and support them rather than denigrate them.
    Some of us flew all the way from the west coast to support this show.One even from Broome via Perth.
    I also feel for the people who spent all that effort and money on exhibiting and who,when Googling for feedback,will be greeted by your very negative post.Do not be surprised then when many resolve not to make that effort again.Which places the whole show at risk of failing.

    ok fair enough, you have a point and I now understand.

    I will still respect any final decisions from the Admin team- Steve, Ron & Marc.

    with regard to good hi fi and Australia, if people were wanting to seek good gear, they will find a way... also I did mention very clearly some rooms/gear that I did like. The Avant Garde room and Sonus Faber & McIntosh room... Therefore , I feel anyone reading my post will get an idea.
    I have also apologized in subsequent messages, therefore anyone reading further can opt to view these or not.

    at the end of the day, I definitely will not be the only one here with negative comments. Although I have made positive comments as well.

    The next time I will make it a point to be more aware and post more thoughtfully, ok?
    have a good one mate.

    I only got this one day off, I am going to spend the rest of the day with my daughter, who just returned from school. Then I will cook a nice dinner for wifey when she gets home and I will be listening to my music later towards the night.

    once again terribly sorry for my unwanted remarks and upsetting those who care. I have moved on and I am sure others had... or least I thought so...
    take care, RJ
