I really think his room will complement the HCFR show with other cans and amps.
Then participants will benefit from this diversity, not the other way round.
He probably is, and many people seem to be happy with the business they've done with him. He must be doing something right.
This is not an enthusiast-based meeting (hence the "imposed" playlist thing which is absolutely ridiculous).
You can't say that the guys who'll bring the gear won't do it for commercial reasons. It's not that I have anything against that kind of behavior, though, since the community directly benefits from it.

That's where it starts to smell fishy.
With that said, and even though I've had some conflicts with him in the past, it's been said and done.
He's done something pretty obnoxious to me, which I won't forget nor forgive, but it's time to move on.
