    FYI: I'm in Taiwan w/o my family and not much to do outside of working, so I've been posting in the Computex thread out of boredom.

    If someone asks you for some off-the-record information, there is only one correct response

    Well, Jon, it wouldn't be that bad if ebony and ivory can stand side by side on this piano, I mean, without overweighting how much the other ones can bother ourselves.

    We ca hope, at least: because the only, real alternative option (in the long run) is... the desert.
    Best, Luca

    I feel much better now.

    I took a week holiday away from work, etc. and calmed down a bit.

    So I'm back, but I'm going to be more careful about what I post....

    ....unless it's against tier lists. I'll always post about how bad those are.

    Someone is taking everything I say and sharing it amogst individuals in other forums. Both industry individuals and consumers alike. And while I've yet to post any false information that I know of, and a large degree of these posts are certainly available to the public, by sharing them with other people on a one on one basis, I've been under attack for making the statements I've made. Like I said: Even though I have not posted false information.

    Moving beyond that: I have shared some information with some individuals that I thought I could trust with that was not to be shared with others. My requests to not share the information outside of these conversations were ignored and a good deal of this information has leaked out to other people, which not only jeopardizes my trust in those individuals, but also others trust in me.

    This cannot go on any further.

    Perhaps I am naive to have such trust in too many people, but I cannot let it effect my life to such a degree. So I will no longer be posting as jonnyGURU here, or at any other website, starting today.

    Don't bother sending me a PM asking me who has betrayed me. I'm not doing this for the drama. In fact, I'm doing this to avoid any further drama. Just know that in the coming months, it will become perfectly clear to the individuals who have betrayed my trust that they will no longer receive any help from me moving forward.

    Jon
    Damn jonny that literally broke my heart(put a tear in me eye). I can't believe someone would do that. I do hope at least you would stick around once in a while we can use your wisdom.

    If it wasn't for you i wouldn't question all the crappy stuff i've used and bought the proper stuff i needed. (I still remember your suggestion when i purchased my Antec HCG 750)

    Your site and your help,insight and comments has prevented people from buying utter shite, and ruining computers.or at least fix them. I think you are selling youself short you have contributed so much and i feel people are being total dicks for doing stuff like this to you...i am really going to miss having you here
    ....
