No Doubt, Ive gotten a couple of points already and i wasnt even trying to get them LOL You REALLY have to watch what you say in the off topic forum. Those Libs over there get their panties in a wad over what i consider nothing. I'll probably get another point for posting this

That's just the way of the world. This is a commercial website. I just don't like to hear people deluding themselves into thinking they are getting "THE TRUTH" here or that there really is some sort of "community". My experience has been very clear...for example, what made this site popular years ago was a troupe of volunteer moderators who kept a watch on things and guided the discussions. One day, they were all fired, and Jim Graham and the 'points system" put into place. The very people who made it what it was were just thrown out. And nobody really protested, either. Not much of a "community" after all.

To be honest i couldnt care less about these vendor fights . It does clog up the boards with BS though. I fully understand that things aren't what they seem to be around here. I am also heavily in to the RC Boats (14 boats now) and the vendors in that field are great people to deal with but this RC Plane hobby is a different story. What a mess ! I'm surprised ANYBODY can sell a plane in this environment. Hard to tell who's who and whats what around here.
Do many people from these boards deal with you? I might do a search and see if i can get any feedback on your business. The only thing ive read about you so far is the fights between you vendors which i dont pay much attention to. As you said , way to many shills around here.....
I think the vast majority of Model Airplane dealers are good to deal with, but lately, everybody thinks they can become a dealer, and there are some bad ones out there...
I am a boat fan, too, I have built ALMOST all of the Sterling Chris Crafts, and many small plastic conversions, stuff like that. Not really into speed-type boats these days.
GWS CEO is the CEO of GWS. GWS was an important company, they sold a lot of cheap models and electronics that got a lot of people flying electrics. But he would come on here and promise the world, and deliver very little of that, yet he had a cult following who would hang on his every word. GWS did not listen to one word of what their customers had to say, and they lost their ascendancy in the e-flying world completely. It's a shame. They had a clever thing, which was to have the CEO communicate directly with the customers, which made customers feel important, but I think the customers in the end realized he was not REALLY listening, just glad-handing them.
But, some years back, if you dared to doubt the Gospel Of GWS CEO, as I did, you would have a legion of GWS Cultists at your throat. All of those cultists nowadays fly Parkzone instead of GWS!

So your one of the ones he was talking about heh ? What do you mean "again" exactly? I recognise you from the OT forum. Were your ears burning?

I buy from Curtis. While Curtis isn't always right (NONE of us are!). He will be honest with his opinions. I just kinda get his sense of humor. I just cannot help it. He makes me laugh. And, no, I ain't no shill.
