Not that it matters.............

I went over to AC. Searched a certain banned manufacturer. Had 50 posts, wiped out, for around 10% reject ratio.

FWIW.
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Poked around, at our fave forum, again, and found another Mod with 2523 posts missing.

Who could imagine?
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Don't ask me why, but............

One of their more annoying mods has >13k posts, but the total is >19k. Close to a 1/3 reject rate! Most folks have nowhere near 6k posts, and he has that many wiped out. Pathetic.

I bet most of them were ones where he argued with The Devil. Why should anyone be surprised?

Problem 1.) He is a Swede.

Problem 2.) He chose the name "Audio Truth".

Problem 3.) He thinks some guy, who is a reviewer, for some big-name high-end rag, is going to give a rat's ass about his cable. He just wants a free one. In exchange for "Well, I tried to get the review printed, but we had space limitation issues."

Problem 4.) The "reviewer" is even a bigger idiot than he is.

Problem 5.) They deserve each other.

Problem 6.) Of course, it did not work when he put the original power cord back in, with a new fuse. IT IS BROKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tube amps do that!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have to fix it before it will work. Two idiots can not distinguish between coincidence and cause and effect. Ergo, #5.

Of course, the fact he has to broadcast his ignorance on 2 forums provides us with a great deal of amusement. Which is the raison d'etre of audio forums.

And Swedes.

"I hate you guys." Some more than others.
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Dunno which is worse:

A) Naive cable maker

B) Ignorant and perhaps slimy reviewer

C) Erudite and knowledgable technical analysis and replies

D) All of the above.  (Bad grammar, I know...)

Isn't hard to figure out...............

Idiot reviewer listens to amp, with his fancy cord. Turns amp off, puts on new magic cord, and turns amp on. Amp sustains failure, and blows fuse. Tubes are still warm, and conduct. Something that does not happen when they are cold. So, outside chance something happened to the tubes. (I have no idea what............tubes are not my forte.)

Or he could have just made it all up. If he sends the cable back, then maybe he didn't. Still, he got what he deserved.

Then there is the dumb Swede. (Which is a bit redundant.)
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Wow................since you first linked that train wreck, it has grown 3 more pages. Audio Truth really should change his name to Audio Swede, as he lives up to the stereotype, and then some. He is clueless, admits it, and then brags how clueless he is.

All the time pretending he knows how to make a magic power cord.
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

There's an experiment...  We can talk here about some random thread there.  Then see how long it is before it's closed.
