Ron Price: A Personal Retrospective
RON PRICE
a good poster

Part 1:

I first encountered Ron Price (1944-2015) on the inthemix forums where he was a prolific poster, often starting threads to paste his essays that were generally off topic (not about electronic music etc) and could often be traced back by google to countless other sites he posted them on as well.

Part 1.1:

Ron seemed to rarely even return to his own threads to read the replies, as he was apparently too busy writing even more awesome essays and finding as many other sites as possible to post them on. For this he is of great inspiration and one of my all-time posting heroes. When he did respond to people's replies he was still really cool too which owns.

Part 2:

Today I was looking for more content feeds to add to my shitposting bot on the ITM Slack, and so searched Price's extensive online presence. I was dismayed to hear of his apparent death eight days ago as of writing and decided to post this thread in tribute.

Part 3:

I'm sorry I'm not as good a
poster as Ron and that this
thread does not do him justice.
The world has lost a great poster.

Keep posting in that Baha'i afterlife buddy.

Nice obit :')

Rest in peace Ron. One of the most prolific and under-appreciated Canadian-Australian driveby essay posters I ever did come across.

I am irl shocked and dismayed to learn of RP's death.

Would it be out of order for me to go on a Bumping spree?



Wrong and just plain disrespectful in the RonPrice obit thread

realtalk it's probably hard for people to read through the multiple layers of irony in my op over the internet, but while i rarely actually read his posts because tl;dr, it was obvious the dude had a good heart and i genuinely enjoyed that he shared it with us

This is sad news. The guy was genuine and always friendly, never malicious and just wanted to share his thoughts with the world.
It's nice that he included ITM as his mouthpiece.

RIP Ron Price.

Yeah... yeah.

Wow, quite sad. He always popped up occasionally on other forums that I read. In spite of the massive trolling he often received online, he always came across as a warm, kindhearted guy.

RIP RonPrice.

What a classy rebuttal to trolling

Sad that there will no longer be RonPrice bumping decade old threads.
