Sorry Lance. I saw the thread too. I think sometimes that people don't realize that forums are sometimes used to vent a little and it should be OK, who else are you going to vent to about shaving. If they just let it happen it will be third page news by day two and forgotten by the end of the week. In reality many people already have a preset opinion on a product or vendor long before and a little moaning isn't going to change their vote. Heck if the forums banned everyone that has vented about the manufacturers like P&G, Frank's, AoS, Gillette etc. There would be no one left Smile

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Just wanted to say thank you.

Also, yes, they deleted the thread over there, which is telling. But I know that nearly 3000 people saw it and most agreed with me.

As far as that particular vendor goes I have been awarded a refund by Paypal after I had to take it to the dispute level.

Funny thing is, is that I wasn't the only one to be defrauded by this company. I got PM's telling me that they, too, were defrauded but they were afraid to say anything on that forum.

I can see why they were afraid. Seems there's an "in crowd" going on and it has to do with "vendor contributions".

I defamed a favored vendor (and rightfully so) and I paid for it.

I'm glad to be here and not there. I don't think I want to be a part of any forum that would allow that sort of thing to go on and then knowingly cover it up.

Anyway, thanks guys.

not sure why everyone pretends or jokes about there being only 1 forum or board.

what i find funny is, i've seen most of you post elsewhere, contribute elsewhere, buy and sell elsewhere and online often. Wink

vendors elsewhere are members here. stewards and contributors elsewhere are members here....

there are room for multiple shaving forums, we all share the same passion.

as for the latest permaband discussion, i saw a bit of what happened and feel the vendor did good on what they offered (full refund upon return). granted, i did not see all the behind the scense stuff, emails and pms that happened, only what was posted..but i do feel for you and am sorry to see it happen to anyone.

Key word here, "jokes" (i.e., having a good time). No harm, no foul. We are all aware.

Turtle is the only turtle. Rat is like the turtle but with hair instead of the shell.

I hope that Russianrat is a stand up guy wherever you see him, and as far as I know, he is almost always me. I have stuck with the same userid as much as possible.
