With All due respect I disagree. About a year ago I called him to ask him a question and he told me in order to talk to him he would need a credit card and charge by the time......... to be honest he was extremely rude in the way he said it. I immediately told him NO THANKS. Iím sure I wasnít the only one he asked for a credit card to talk to him. Maybe enough people complained?

NO, my experience happened about a year ago. I just shrugged it off and didnít even say anything about it. I donít know why he got banned, I thought I saw him posting something a few days ago about reflashing ecuís? Maybe one of the manufacturers complained about that?

that is interesting since he does not take credit cards and has not for at least the last few years I have bought from him. in fact I usually have to bug him to send me an invoice so I can send him a check for parts.

I can only tell you my experience, maybe he was having a bad day I donít know what to tell you. After that I never called him again. Itís been at least a year. I donít know the guy personally. Seemed to always want to help people which is why I reached out to him.

The guy has helped hundreds of us diagnose problems for years for nothing. Help of this kind from members is absolutely one of the main reasons this site exists and has been so successful. It’s a damn shame

Bup banned??
 
Can one of the moderators confirm with us? It seems the issue is unclear.

Whatís going on with the latest forum update? Itís getting weird around here

Craney 06-07-2020 07:08 PM

I can’t believe it,it would be a shame to lose a good guy like that always there with a lot of knowledge to help a lot people out.I hope they lift the ban.

Content deleted......

Just read a well written post by 'Rookie' a couple of posts down. Think I'll wait and read more arguments on both sides.
