    Folks,

    Please, we need to put a stop to the "Satelliteracer: What's coming next?" questions. Satelliteracer has been very good about letting us all know about channels when it is time to do so.

    As a result, I'm placing a moratorium on these types of questions at this time. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

    Agreed. I'm sure he already shares whatever he can. No need to pressure him.

    Thanks for all you do SatRacer!! :)

    Sounds fair - he can post new info when he's ready to share and then we can discuss and ask follow-up questions if needed. He's an incredible resource here, and often times shows amazing patience with us.

    He and (bow your heads) my old (2000-ish) on-line buddy TiVoVangelist are my corporate heroes! Thanks, Satracer!

    Thank You Doug. Satelliteracer does his best to provide us information whenever he can and I would hate for that to stop.

    He is very patient, no doubt about it. I'd never be able to take the constant heckling. I'm not sure how much of it he reads, but hopefully not too much.

    That said .... in the current DirecTV climate as it pertains to National HD, we don't really need him. We can just self-answer our National HD questions with:

    a) Soon
    b) It takes two to tango
    c) The current focus is on LiL's,
    d) etc.

    In this environment of glacial-paced HD additions, it doesn't seem like an "insider" is really needed.

    Can we make a satelliteracer sticky, where HE and only HE simply updates one thread when necessary to inform us of upcoming additions and changes? We would still be able to ask questions of his posts.

    Is that what those have been about? Here I thought it was a web site that people were referencing. I had no idea that each thread was directed at one individual.
    Absolutely all threads calling out anyone but Earl should be stopped.

    You should stop sending him PMs then.

    Absolutely unacceptable.

    Shame on anyone that PMs him for info. What makes you think he would/should share info with individuals privately that he won't share publicly?

    I do NOT think he would. But I DO think he will get bombarded with PM's from people. There should just be a single "ask SatRacer" thread where he can, if he wishes, answer any question he chooses and it's all in one spot.

    Or we can just leave the guy alone like the mods have asked and let him volunteer the information he has when he's willing to do so. He's always been very nice and open with the information he has so let's not abuse him.

    I am very happy with the information he provides and see no reason to pester him.

    Folks, if we want to keep the information flowing, we need to let it run it’s natural course and not try to rush it.

    Exactly... He's in no way, shape, or form obligated to provide us with any info... And he gains nothing from doing so... He does it because he's a nice guy... No reason to take him for granted...
