OK, who's got the popcorn? This thread looks to have potential!
All kidding aside, Rforsey, if you've got a beef with someone here on the boards, I think you'll find it more effective to lay out the facts as you see them, rather than make some vague accusations on your first post.
Something like this might be more effective:
Obviously, my blurb above was fictional, but I think you might get a better reception if you presented your case in a similar manner. The board has a long history of beating poor vendors with a stick (and an equally long history of being merciless on those who cry wolf). Not making judgements, but when you're accusing folks of ripping you off, you might want to provide a bit more information.In May of this past year, I bought an engine from XYZ Marine. Their advertisement claimed 600 hp. After paying for the motor, we installed it but never saw the performance we expected. Numerous calls to XYZ produced no results, so we pulled the motor and put it on the dyno. Instead of 600 hp, it was making only 400 - less than a stock HP500. I've tried repeatedly to contact XYZ, but have had no success.
As always, YMMV....
