RE: It is good to know

"It is good to know that you will hold information sharing until you can write another article. Ah, the lure of lucre....."

Ya see... you might get farther with him, and this subject, if you quit the sniping. That crack wasn't necessary, and I don't even think it was accurate, just a reflection of your prejudices. I don't believe Clark is paid for his articles, he does it as a labour of love. You asked him for a listing of identifiable recordings, after complaining that he wouldn't supply any, and he just agreed to provide one, in an upcoming article. But that's not good enough, you want it right away. Well, I think he's in his right to delay publication, it's certainly not out of order for an author to do this. You imply the reason he's not favouring your demand and publishing the list before his intended plans, in order to please you personally, is because of his selfish interest in the "filthy lucre". And, while I can see the reasons for your antagonism toward him, do you really see no good reason why he would behave this way toward you? cj's done a lot to help the audio community, not the least of which is having "written a frikkin' book" on the subject of polarity, helping audiophiles get the basics right for the cost of a free tweak. The results of which seems to have received more flack than appreciation, in general. I know exactly where he's coming from, since in the last couple of years I've done my own little efforts to help the community improve their sound for free, and received far more flack than appreciation. So I can understand how one's tolerance for "snipers"will diminish considerably over time, as one is faced with this kind of attitude, over and over again.

I still think you both have a lot in common and can have many productive discussions, but you -both- have to want it. You just gotta lose the attitude.

(ME telling someone to lose the attitude.... now -that's- irony!)
