These days, Mike Greene is more busy protecting his biggest sponsor Spitfire Audio from “inflammatory hate speech”! Or is it really? Read and decide for yourself, but I just got banned for the second time for what I wrote and before that, two of my posts were censored. I certainly didn’t write anything offensive ... this site has really gone mad!

You seem surprised! Lol. I didn’t look through the pages to see what you wrote, but SFA and it’s cult fanbase are the epitome of cringe. CH profile pic looks like a third grade class photo lmao. That forum is astroturf central.

Well, half surprised. I thought you could still say facts like Spitfire Audio Player missing features that were important to me and many other people. But, no ...
This time, I had to have Paul Thomson tell me I say ridiculous things, but when I politely asked him to exactly go though the details I mentioned, he backed out and Greene censored me and warned me not to post in the thread again.
He also denies my wish to have my profile including all my posts deleted, as I want the full association with his forum gone. Anybody know wether he can do that?

You can also read though this (not related to me) - headshot and his "followers" being mentioned there once more! He is such a hypocrite ...

Haha! i had to google the meaning of astroturf. :-) Delayed laughter, but a rather funny AND fitting description of VI-C! And, actually all the patina, pseudo-philosophy and pseudo-expertise that Spitfire as a company with Hensons videos as the central piece of BS offer: Spitfire itself seems like the biggest "Astroturf Central" ever.

Those 2 at SFA have never been capable of receiving any criticism without turning it into something hostile...even if it’s buried under 100lbs or praise and adoration for their products. I saw the other day people being being lambasted just for asking how many dynamic layers are in their forthcoming library, LOL! It’s possible to have your account be wiped out...they did that to my first one about 7 years ago (I didn’t ask them to, I had searched for it one day out of curiousity and it was gone). Any refusal to do so is probably just a power trip since they know it’d aggravate you. I’d just forget about it, life is too short!

Well, I was not surprised by Henson and Thomson not taking critical words towards there Player well. I have witnessed similar reactions by them in the past and surely, a horde of fan boys punished every little critical remark back then, too! What is completely new and what surprised me was how blatantly obvious Mike Greene intervened and forced me to shut up or go. There isn’t even a hint of trying to seclude his association. Probably that is the case because he noticed that the brain-dead majority of sheep in this forum applauds to it and the few sensible people remaining have given up to comment on it.

I think Henson has admin privileges because he just went on a drunken rant a bit ago, and then deleted his posts (he said he did because he was “knackered”) lol. He didn’t just edit them...they vanished. (I do have screenshots tho, I’ll post eventually just for the lulz).

That pussy ass motherfucker sure loves playing victim while shafting his customers lol.

As far as I know you can delete a post without being an admin, right? Other than that: I did not read the post by CH, but if it is the usual outrage, it proves once more that these SF chaps would better stay off forums as they cannot handle criticism well. In spite of the millions the company has made for them, they are still insecure and don’t like the narrative of being in the business for the money. No, those are the brave knights bringing goodness to the music community and if you question that you are a strange person with a lot of hate inside.

I find it really sickening seeing people who were just lucky with their business act as if they were warriors of social justice and champions of music. They just hit a gold vest and drain it dry! Nothing special about that - it is what most successful companies in capitalism do. But at least, don't claim to be something else, if you have some decency left in your bones ...

In addition, CH MIGHT have a little problem with alcohol ... adding to narcism and delusions of grandeur ... well, the problem with alcohol is only an assumption. I don't know it for a fact!

As to Mike Greene: I wonder why he didn’t show up yet defending the poor spitfire audio millionaires!? Might be that there are a bit to much people trash talking about SF this time to just ban someone and bury the whole thing? Well, I got banned for just saying the player is inferior to Kontakt! :-D

Can you? Now I’m not sure...usually when people do they just delete the message, but the post itself is still there. BUT I could be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time! CH was basically daring people to make a sample company as good as theirs because it “kills” him doing what they do hahaha. I guess traveling around to make cringy videos is SUCH hard work.

Poor guy. Must be such a thankless job having everyone kiss your ass and having to spend your $1000 in beer money on expensive wine /crysSJWtears.

How many times have you been banned from there anyways...and were any of the reasons valid...lol..

For the record - I don’t frequent that place much, but as luck would have it, every time I’m taking a crap and I venture over there on my phone there’s something entertaining going on!

I got banned two times. First in response to the Headshot vs HZ topic. The second time (which is still on effect now) was after Greene had warned me several times in threads where I was saying something critical or negative. As you see in this thread, people can say critical things there without getting banned. But not, if you are under Greenes special observation, as I obviously was when writing about Spitfires player. I could have ignored his warning, but I was fed up with being warned every time, so I confronted him with the choice to either stop it or ban me. He didn't think twice about it and it was probably the chance he had been waiting for.
There also is a sneaking suspicion that after the headshot stuff some people kept reporting my posts, to get rid of me. Or maybe there is a general tendency on Vi-Control to report any critical writing ... because criticism is evil ... and love is good ...
Well, let's not talk about that stuff any more. Every time I think about it I get mad and stop believing in mankind. :-) There are better topic to discuss.

Lol sorry man. I agree though about better topics.......I just couldn’t help myself!

(I’ve had way to much time on my hands lately)

However, for what it’s worth (not much I know lol) I have seen your posts for years and always admired the fact that you voice opinions no matter how against the grain they are. I’ve found myself agreeing with you probably 75% of the time when you’ve raised an issue...which is probably 50% more than most VIC members.

Even though you don’t know how to use paragraphs. Lol
