Although we hear about it every day, we have now a "head on" example of how someone with some influence(and hiding behind a fictional name), is using the internet in a very negative, vicious and cowardly fashion.

This is quite disturbing, although, when one thinks long and hard about it, not particularly surprising. I really could never understand why when this whole thing started to flare up to the degree it did, there was the odd superficial intervention by the principles at Audioholics asking "meekly" to tone down the rhetoric but, in the end, nothing was ever really done to quell the nonsense or ban any of those that were constantly doing it. It would seem Ian's comments, unfortunately, expose exactly why.

In my opinion now, whatever credibility the folks at Audioholics had left, has now totally disappeared.

I agree Casey.

I've spent a few minutes perusing JBall's posts here and it's interesting to say the least. Especially his last one involving the Audioholics shootout.

So Jball is in fact Gene? That's really messed up. I've always had the up most respect for Gene and Audioholics. I'm quite stunned.

I would suspect that should "JBall" never post again then we will, obviously, have our answer.

if he's intelligent enough, then he will post again, just to diminish suspicion.

Where is John when you need him.... Ble, he is probably working.....


Ian, in a way that explains some of the bizar posts made by the user Jball.. He was asking questions in the LFR thread about the case v.s. stamped and would not let it go, also bizar questions in the subwoofer thread... i know i was kind of wondering what was going on.. i guess it makes it clear now.....


I would say do some more investigating, if you can prove it was Gene, then lawyer up and take him down the American/Apple way....

It would be interesting to see if he is feeding the fuel over at audioholics under an assumed used, then logging in as Gene to "save face"

Wasn't audioholics the company that was doing the "subwoofer shoot out" that Ian decided not to participate in? Maybe your gut instinct about them was right on many months ago Ian?

I've long since given up posting in those types of threads and had second thoughts on posting in this one but I would like to thank Ian for posting his views on the events at hand.

JBall is one of the few people I have on ignore here. Audioholics is the site that brought me to Axiom, yet I'll never visit them again, if this turns out to be true. That would be ironic.

Hey, come on now... typo's are an easy and inadvertent oversight.
