Well, disapearing having posted such a curious introduction doesn't make me any less suspicious I'm afraid.
Sorry you couldn't point that out could you so I can read it all in context?Will said:It nearly happened to me as I first came to AO to ask about SA. I received the same flaming from people who didn't know me from Adam but fortunately the person who recommended me to AO pointed out I was genuine and apologies were (grudgingly) offered.:tut: :tut:
I've tried searching for my first post but unfortunately it won't go back as far as May 2005. But essentially I was directed to AO by AROC. I had placed an order through SA and I was about to collect the car. I was being asked by SA to pay the balance before collecting the car and I was bit nervous. Basically I was depressed with what I read but decided on a leap of faith and off I went to get my car. Surprise, surprise and everything worked out well and I posted positive comments on AO - just to add a bit of balance to all the negative stuff- I mean fairs fair , no?Kevin Slegg said:Sorry you couldn't point that out could you so I can read it all in context?
I would hope that I'd be "smart" enough not to be so obvious when getting people to write in and support me.Gary Slegg said:If you run a business and were aware that many people (whether it be a minority or majority) were upset with your business practices, what would you do?
Can't see any point in doing that as it would stop GENUINE off the cuff (and not "joined to comment") posts. Everyone agrees to a non-advertising cluase by signing up and using the forum...that's why it's against the rules!chrisd_b said:Wrinx: You do need to keep an eye on things agreed..and you do want to stop unwanted advertising...But I do feel perhaps a new member statement in your e-mail for registration..you could point out what is acceptable and not acceptabe regarding this point...and warn that SA comments may be deleted if seen to addressed in a manner that implies advertising......and the reasons for that.
Chris, sorry but could you kindly point out where, up to his last post, you think Big Man was 'shot down'?chrisd_b said:The poor guy was shot down...and unlike Will may be totally disheartened by the way he was treated...:tut: :tut: :tut:
