I apologize for the actions of others, and for the lack of moderation to this thread.
R.I.P. Mr. Aczel.
Aczel was a con man who perpetrated by far the worst ethical violation in the history of audio magazines, and he burned "Audio Critic" subscribers by suspending the magazine for years at a time and never delivering the promised number of issues. His death doesn't mean that the facts of his life must be forgiven or forgotten.
Not a critical hate fest after his death.
If you don't have anything to say that's respectful, STFU. IMO.
p.s. His E-zine was offered free to anyone to read for the past six or more years. He even provided new content over those years.
The esteem you hold him in is so high you feel a thread on Audio Asylum should be a memorial to his life!?!?
Oh well, grief has strong effects on people.

I guess you want to live in a unicorn dream reality, not the actual reality.
Sorry. warts and all.
...in your opinion.
This is not his funeral.
It is about his life, both the good and the not so good.
Please don't be disrespectful to us who had unfortunate dealings with him.

Agreed. This is a man who, after he attacked me groundlessly in the pages of
his magazine, reported me to the INS as possibly having dubious immigration
status. There was nothing wrong with my work visa, but that didn't mean it
was not a stressful situation. Taking a vendetta in "mind space" into "meat
space" like that is not something that can be readily forgotten or forgiven.
Damn, JA, that is some kind of nasty!! Unforgivable, really. As if he were his J Edgar Hoover to your John Lennon - thankfully without J Edgar's power.
