If I had to guess Sailnet will be pulling this thread soon...

Sad really

This is an interesting one.

Why was the thread pulled?

Inquiring minds want to know?

Any new information to report?

That thread on the Catalina 25 forum has been pulled from view, so, as RythmDoctor indicated, the link you indicated between Peak in Seattle and K-H in Colorado may not exist. I'm waiting for more information/confirmation.

Hmmmmm...

I am not debating the fact the company obviously had problems and appears to be cloed.

I wonder how many people actually did not receive their money back?

Anyone care to provide their expertise?

Come on. If you purchase something with a credit card and and you do not receive it, you simply have the charge reversed with your credit card company.

One must wonder how many companies got screwed out of product when SailNet and Momentum Sails had their problems?

Big difference in my book.

Perhaps you missed that post.?



Maybe your beef should be with the Better Business Bureau...

Once again, I am confused.

I checked the BBB link. There are a handful of folks who filed complaints about not receiving their order. How many did not receive a refund or simply had the order cancelled by their credit card company?

The company website says they are are closed and no longer taking orders.

What is the big deal here?

Why does it remain "news"?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Hey Jeff.

Ban me!

Ban me, please!

You folks allowed this can of worms to be opened and I have every right to voice my opinion on what I see as nothing more than a public lynching of some people that lost a 10 year old business.

You told me the problems have been going on for "years"?

Can you please document what they were and when they occurred?

Okay boys and girls.

Time to sign out for the evening.

So have at it while I am away.

I will be back sometime soon to collect your remarks and once again ask why no one here has the cajones to document any of the bile that has been posted as fact.

Please let me know about these threatened lawsuits and this mysterious tie to another loft.

These are the only issues I would like FACTS ON!

Remember......

Inquiring minds want to know!

Must be some reason for it?
When a company goes out of business, sometimes the owner(s) establish new businesses under a different name. It is reasonable that a business's prior customers would want to know when this happens. In general, if the customers have been happy with the service of the prior company, they may want to identify the owner's new business(es) so they can do business with him in the future. Small businesses live at the will of their satisfied customers, so the owner(s) should want it to be known that they are continuing to operate under a new company name. Their personal reputation is on the line, and it is right for that reputation to follow them no matter what their business name changes to.

So, you see, communicating this information is "positive for the sport and industry." And much of the information is freely available on the Internet, so people will tend to share that information by posting links on message boards like this.

In this quote you claim to have the skills to mount a libel suit, are willing to offer your services for free, and are threatening to sue Sailnet for libel.

Based on your above quotes, I think we all now know that you are one of those who are apparently threatening Sailnet with litigation. Of course, your threat is only as real as the person posing behind the userid of Caribbean2012. So maybe it's nothing, and maybe it's serious. Which is it?

3. What was the resolution of each?

...However, you let this cat out of the bag and I have every right to ask for documented proof...
Since you appear to have made the same threat, I think we have the same right to ask you for some documented proof.

1. Who are you?
2. What is the nature of your threat?
3. What are you planning to do to act on your threat?

If you are unwilling to share this on an open message board, then I think you will understand why others don't want to share it either. In my opinion, you are no more righteous than the people here to whom you are directing your threats and insults.
