First of all, congratulations to Alvo for his first baby coming into the world yesterday! My best to you and your new family.

Second, thank you Alvo for listening to concerned members of the community. This speaks volumes about you and your character. To those of you that don't know, there was a video posted on Penguin's site that was a little too revealing in regards to tools in the mentalists' tool box (he only spoke of some of our secret tools and techniques, but didn't actually show any gimmicks or how they work). When I saw the video, I sent Alvo a message and, within a few short minutes, he took the video down. Not only does this show that Alvo cares about what the community thinks, but it also shows that he cares about and respects magic/mentalism in general. He could have easily said "Sorry. Deal with it", but instead he chose to do what was right even if it might cost him a few sales. Bravo to you!

Alvo is certainly leading by example, now I just wish that others will follow him.

Here, here Rob!!

Good on ya Alvo, respect to you for listening and caring for what is becoming a daily battle against exposure.

Congrats on the birth of your new baby also

Now, if only a certain No-mad pad would follow a similarly inspiring example! Smile

And if I write, many a pen will break.

Thank you, Alvo Stockman! Way to lead by example; that's something all good parents do. Congratulations.

Ego-surfing again, eh? Smile

But seriously, congrats!
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.
