“I'd guess excessively self-promoting posts, IMO often bordering on spam.”
+ what SB said above in the first couple sentences.
As some of you know I am friends with Peter and respect his creativity and passion. I do agree there was possibly or even probable promotion but it was promotion of ideas and breaking the mold.
Peter seduced us with his projects and vendor diversity. For example, in my opinion, he practically introduced high end to the high end $20K forum. Notably Digital Projection, Christie, Barco, Datasat, Trinnov, Quested and Alcons. I’m not saying he was the first but indeed a trend setter.
I seen a post in the Trinnov thread about the guesstimated units sold (generous at that) vs the total market. It was minuscule. Like a nit n the nut of a knat is larger. Now if you want to see self promotion and borderline spam (at least heavy sales biased innuendo) visit any Triad, JBL, Revel or JVC thread.
Now is Peter innocent? I’d say no and I have told him this. His crime, to me, is being over zealous in defending his designs and opinions to a point of insulting or condescending. Now I do think some of this come from passion and translation from emotion to keyboard.
There are many in this group that have benefited from his presence, have second to none theaters and saved thousands in the process for knowing him
