To all my friends who have collected my articles until now, I have to
say that I will possibly not be contributing any more to this page.
Robbie and Jody have, for their own reasons, decided to "defer" my
replies to Bernt Damm and Dave Saul's personal insults, and I cannot
continue if censured from answering critical personal comments which
they have allowed others to make against me, such as inventing my own
figures, et al. which they should at least know that I am an honest
man, and have no need to do things like that.
In my opinion, good manners are prerequisite to good communication.
I have never made a personal slam against anybody on this page, and
don't expect to be the target of it, myself. I had just hoped to share
my knowledge from a professional rebuilder's viewpoint, with owners who
wanted to rebuild their pianos successfully without problems, and as
such, create more enthusiasm.
Sorry it could not continue. I enjoyed it while it lasted. If anyone
is interested in the replies which were deemed unfit to print, e-mail
me at the above address. I will send you Robbie Rhodes' own rejection
list with the articles intact, there.
I will not be canceling my subscription to MMD, and any who wish to
read further postings will be advised by others where to look, I'm
sure. If and when Robbie and Jody decide to correct these things with
an appropriate apology to all, and bring the page back to balance and
propriety, they know they can again rely on me to do my part. Thanks,
Your good friend,
