Default Phishing is illegal isn't it? What say you Mods?

Moderators: This should be looked into. IP check? A warning to
those involved? I'm sure this kind of thing is happening a lot but this
time it hit close to home for me since my time was wasted.

Right now there is some scorned moron trying to ruin his reputation, funny thing is this guy was burned by someone else, NOT BILL!!!. Well, as they say a "happy sailor is a *****in sailor. Good luck.

Mr. wirsboguy - What's going on? On Jan 31 2001 you ask for help
locating an engine builder in the IL/WI border area. However on
Nov 9 2009 you defend Ateco from an apparent cyber bully and
tout Bill's skills. Then three times on Jan 30 2009 in two different
threads from 2004 and 2006 you tout and rave about rotating
assemblies and a purchase of one said assembly from Ateco. Who
do you work for? Are you just phishing for business? Are you a
shill for someone's business? There is nothing wrong with telling
someone who your favorite engine builder is when THEY ask.
Mark "KAAMA" does it all the time for his man in Michigan but he
does it the right way. When someone asks for a builder's name and
an opinion of his work Mark will give it. No fake threads. No fake
screen names.

When I saw your engine builder plea thread last week I started to
gather all my notes that I had amassed the past few years in hope
of giving you good info for your engine project. I spent a few hours
gathering all this info for you and when I could not remember the
thread name I searched for your screen name. Guess what came up?
You wasted my time and I am p!ssed off about it. Your actions
diminish the importance of this site and the people who try to help.
You should be ashamed of yourself.

I rescind my offer to help I gave in my PM.
Please lose my phone number.

You are obviously very thorough and take your time very serious. I can't believe that you had all that info right there and ready. Good for you. Keep it up bro. It's nice to know that some people go above and beyond to help out a fellow boater. Keep it up, it's appreciated by some of us

Well it seems my effort was not in vain.
Back from the penalty box! I don't know who is/was involved but
I just want people to double and triple check everything. From
advice, to references, to price quotes, and everything in between you
need to be vigilant to protect yourselves. If you take advice from
MiniHawk or PokerRun388 you got trouble!
