Hillbilly and I have discussed this matter via PM. Hillbilly is in the service business and I understand his feeling that when dealing with the masses you will find many screwball customers with baseless complaints.
I pointed out to him that in no way is this situation a generalization against the business, and he has gracefully acknowledged that my complaints are legitimate.
This complaint is very specific and backed up by incontestable facts, photos and statements of admission by the seller.
Todd Lamb has violated the selling rules both here and Offshore Only for years now. He's a vendor who doesn't pay supporting vendor fees, he advertises in forums for free regularly and does nothing for this community unless it will make him a buck.
Since he has chosen to ignore this situation when he could have paid a small fraction of the repair in a timely manner and been done with it, I intend to see to it that the members be forewarned from here on out.
