It's nice to know my vids are useful and enjoyed.

I've never had any real issues with HK -- I just keep an eye on them and their products, highlighting those which are of concern and those which appear to be good.

It would be compromising my objectivity if I were to be aligned with any individual supplier (either for or against) so I treat HK like all others. If they want to send stuff to be reviewed then I'll review it and publish the results here (good or bad) - then give the product away.

Both RCG and RCU have "banned" me in the past for my "outspoken views". As a result, even if I were allowed back, I would not go because I know that as soon as I say something that might get one of the trigger-happy moderators excited, I'd be banned again and the offending (ie: fact-laden) posts would be deleted.

Rather than end up fighting with those moderators and the commercial pressures that RCU/RCG/FG have on them to keep advertisers happy, I figured the best way would be to simply create this website and these forums.

I do drop in from time to time (anonymously) to see what's going on and I must admit that I still get frustrated when I see other people delivering completely *wrong* advice or information about topics they clearly know very little about. I'm hoping that these forums will become widely-enough known that people will consider them as their first-port of call when they have issues that need resolving.

We'll just have to wait and see though -- the other sites have "critical mass" and it'll take a *lot* of work to make inroads into their market.
