My reply to this kind of response....


Don't make YOUR probelms, MY problem.





The maximum allowable limit of truth and fact "over there" is set at a threshold of 75%. The remaining 25% is reserved for favoritism and bias.

You obviously exceeded the amount of "fact" and must be punished.

The quoted posts are 3 months old. I just replied as well. We'll see how long it lasts.

I typed out a lengthy reply, but I'll give the mods the opportunity to rectify. Reported his post, and stated that I believe he should be reprimanded for it and should ANSWER the question posed, which was a pretty simple one. If it's an above-board operation, the answer should be just as simple.

If no action is taken, then I'll post my reply. I don't care if it's 3 months old, I'm going to stick up for a fellow member if the mods don't. Unacceptable behavior from a vendor.

I did my part to be responsible and leave the policing up to the mods. If I post on the thread it will be because they failed to do their job.

This is what I'll post if I have to:

Quote:
Unacceptable behavior.

Apologies to forums user "nvusgt." All forum members are deserving of respect, whether they have Red, White, and Blue stars and thousands of posts, or just a few hundred posts. Whether they drive a $100,000+ ZR1 or a 2001 C5 Z06. All forum members have a right to participate in any thread, and all forum members have a right to ask any vendor to shed some light on a product hold-up, even members who aren't the ones who have paid for yet-to-be-completed and delivered goods.

If the product ultimately proves to be manufactured correctly and of high quality, then it certainly looks like it could be great based on the renderings. However based on the above response, potential customers might wonder if the service accompanying the product will be of quality. If there is one thing the long-standing forum vendors with stellar reputations and years of success all have in common (as opposed to those who have come and gone and burnt people in the process), it is their class and integrity. They've answered thousands of questions over the years, answered the tough questions as politely as the soft-balls, and treated all-comers with respect, whether they ultimately spent money with the vendor or not, whether they were likely to or not.

The above response to "nvusgt" wasn't cute or witty. We can all read between the lines, and we can all translate it for what it is - belittling and disparaging a fellow forum user and telling him/her to eat fecal matter.

You could have simply answered the question honestly instead of browbeating the questioner.

Should I respond in the thread???

Got a similar Dear John response from Corvettes of Houston over there.

Savewave closed the thread as soon as they got their retort in.

We've all beat this horse, going to CFOT, plenty of times before. It is what it is and it's not going to change anytime soon. With that said, I still go over there but I'm far from a regular poster that I once was. Will I continue to visit? Yes but I don't keep up with anything on a regular basis unless it's CFB and the few posters I like. The admin(s) and mods already have the history of what I expect them to do. That history is not impressive at all. Therefore, I sure hope they don't expect me to piss on them or CFOT if I notice a fire.

You sound like a little girl with nothing better to do with your time. Don't like the way they answered another members rude question? Get a life you envious little girl.

I hope this doesn't go down like the Hennessey ordeal w/ preorders deposits having been paid with nothing to show for it.

Not my problem though. It'll soon be savewaves if i had to guess.
