It is both bewildering and astonishing to me that Stereophile's depiction of these incidents has been turned against them. They're the GOOD GUYS, for goodness' sake!
You just said that most reviewers, editors and publishers are highly ethical, but Stereophile is the only one I see trying to smear their competitors. So what makes them the good guys?
You seem to have a pretty cozy relationship with Stereophile, cozy enough to team up on this. Am I supposed to believe this doesn't court you some favor with the magazine?
Anyone who points out problems in the industry is labeled as negative, or as smearing those concerned.
Feel free to think what you will. We are all corrupt, we're all in cahoots. By the standards of this forum, no one in this biz can cooperate with anyone else without being a co-conspirator.
I frankly don't give a damn what you believe. Ever wonder why more manufacturers and journalists don't participate here? It's because they're greeted with snark and innuendo by armchair quarterbacks. Have fun.
I'm a bit lost as to what you and Art were trying to achieve with this. Are you trying to say the industry has a problem, or just that there are a couple of bad apples? If you think the audio press are generally ethical and there's just a few bad apples, why would you put something like this out there? You haven't outed the bad apples but you have left a cloud hanging over everyone else. That seems unfair to all the rest of the press besides Stereophile.
Also, you took private communications exchanged with a press member and gave them to a competing publication to use as ammunition. How is that ethical? Even though you've withheld the names, you're still playing favorites.
