Just looked at this.
Ipp – You are right, sincerely, not in a rush to fall foul with you so if my actions caused offence let me say sorry as you are by far the fairest moderator here. The code was too close to the bone, I accept this, so I have altered it. From now on I will keep off other people’s threads.
Pears- Agree with your thoughts – to a large extent people will stay local but I think with Europe – we have a bigger tendency to shop around within Europe for specialist materials – we have to - for its worth my own sales data suggests this as well.
Not sorry for my actions regarding competition, not fussed if he can or can’t handle pressure and honestly think it’s been over dramatized – the chap has sent back a product – big deal, cry me a river. But I do acknowledge the code was too close to the bone. Also I do find the French companies have a tendency to be up themselves regarding naturals – more the independent types – they think their farts smell of roses most of the time - so given the chance I will have no hesitation at all in ripping his heart out and serving it up with a plate of chips and a diet Pepsi ( I need to lose a few pounds). I suspect he is not like this though based on how Gecko writes (another true gent) but I feel otherwise based on my own experiences generally with the French independents and the fact Nizan can’t be around people for half an hour due to how this French man makes him feel. And right now I agree with Graphite – it’s a lot of shadow boxing.
Final point though – prior to my comments this thread had about 800-850 comments I think within a month or so – I comment and in a few days the view count hits nearly 1800 and the thread gets a lot more activity. Same with the Haven Essence thread – same with my huddler thread - so maybe I have helped him, especially as he contributed squat to this thread personally - not even a public thank you to his followers. Au revoir, Adam
