I don't know if I agree that Rocna did/is doing this. But I will say that I feel a certain person does on this and other forum sites, which in the end was 1 of reasons I got something else when it was all over.

I was only agreeing with what the OP had said about the issue on the beginning of this thread.

Now do you care to explain what you mean with your post? You are referring to me? You are talking about what? What other sites? You are accusing me of doing an unfair and dirty campaign? About what? On behalf of whom?

I really wait an explanation because you are slandering me and I am not used to that!

Paulo, I'm not sure about his wording but I doubt very much that Don0190 was referring to you. My guess he is saying that he did not buy a Rocna because of the attitude of a certain someone not too far removed from Rocna itself.

Sorry Don..... assuming Andrews is right.

I guess that I am a bit fed up about the harsh discussion on another thread and I was kind of seeing that beginning again.

Regards

Paulo

Paulo,

I saw Don typing saying the same as Andrew, meaning another "person" related to the Rocna family if you will is doing the campaigning if you will on the Rocna behalf. You did not specify the whom if you will. I do not see Don trying to slander you, only agreeing with a sub note as to they who and why.

Is there a difference?

To the best of my knowledge this allegation against "whalebone" has not been proven and certainly not to any degree that would hold up in court. It could very well be true, or it could simply be an effort to discredit someone before they present damning evidence about a company and its products. Neither has been vetted to my knowledge.

TDW- In light of Craig's post stating that he benefits finically from the sale of Rocna anchors, and the fact that it appears he has been asked to remove is affiliation with Rocna from his signature by the company, does he have a duty to disclose his association? (Its been a while since I reviewed the rules of use here.)

Hey T! Welcome to SquirrelNet dude! Heh-heh.

So far it looks like the mods here have everything under control.
