STeVe would be better off leaving the threads open and not responding/ignoring than deleting and making himself look even more guilty than he already is.
some of the users must've noticed Buddy Holly threads disappear then they are gonna google "steve hoffman buddy holly" and the fucking crown King Hoofy wears will slip
Trolling Hooferman on his social media poats I have read comments on things mentioning Buddy Holly and later seeing those comments deleted. It’s almost as if STeVe has a legal ruling that states he cannot be associated with Buddy Holly’s name in any way.
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE
Nothing says “I am not one of his sycophants“ quite like dropping a War & Peace length defense of Daddy and then turning it into a flame war.
In the defense of Daddy “Audiophilander” has this argument:
That said, I find it indefensible (not to mention cowardly) for one to hide behind a pseudonym or initials as a means of impugning the ethics of a well regarded recording engineer with rumor and innuendo, the apparent intent being to damage his professional reputation at no personal risk to self. If you were banned on Steve's site (understandable, judging from your established behavior on the Outside Board), then perhaps you have a personal axe to grind, but whether that is the case or not, it isn't an acceptable excuse to libel someone anonymously.
Certainly “Audiophilander” wasn’t born with that name. I mean, he wouldn’t want to hid behind a pseudonym or initials bow, would he?
