Re: New Multiplex things!

Is this a SPAM?
If not, dont read the rest....

Cause if it is, I will NEVER buy anything from Multiplex or modelspot or
neomega-resin ever...

It's a cheap and dirty way of advertising, and hopefully there are more
people that has my attitude then people actyally bying stuff from the
spammer.

There is nothing wrong with telling people "Hey this new gismo from ACME
products looks great" as long as you dont work for ACME, but if you do, it
is shameless advertising.
Sometimes it is hard to tell one from the other, that's why it is so
shameless....

Wonderful. 35 and 40 MHz only. You'll sell a *lot* of those in North
America.

That's a pretty provincial viewpoint. I don't think this newsgroup is
restricted to residents of North America.

Multiplex does sell 72mhz radios, just not through that particular
distributor. See http://www.multiplexrc.com/home.html

Mr Bean:

I realize that the newsgroup is not restricted to residents of North
America. I was referring to the offerings this guy had on his site
under the banner

"HOT NEWS! We can now sell direct to the USA and Canada! Click Here!"

And having clicked there, you are offered 35 and 40 MHz systems. Only.

Nope, it's not spam (SPAM(tm) is the canned meat product). spam is
just the same thing lots and lots of times. Calling something spam
based on content is called CENSORSHIP, and censorship is bad. So far,
he's only posted it one time. If the same post starts showing up
repeatedly, you know where it's headed: spam. Then you can complain.

It's not spam. Heck, it's not even off-topic.

He's not even being a shill. This is clearly an advertisement posted
by someone who is clearly representing the company being advertised. A
shill says, "look at this great product I found," when he's the one
that profits from the sale of said product.

Bad Vibes happening here.

You may now know of the purchase of Multiplex by Hitec. Previously we did not supply customers in the USA and Canada directly from here in the UK out of respect for Karlton Spindle at Multiplex USA, we directed all business from the USA to him.

However, we have been told by Multiplex that we are now free to supply you direct in the USA, so what are you waiting for?!

Regards!

Gordon Upton
Appreciate the product update Gordon.
I do not appreciate the elimination of Karlton Spindle's position as U.S.
importer of Multiplex products.I see you have lost your respect for Karlton as well.
Multiplex & Hitec are free to run their business as they choose.
My 'feelings' are that the ethics of MPX & Hitec do not mirror the quality of their products.
As an American I am probably more sensitive to this issue than either
you (Gordon) or Hitec/MPX.
What you may be sensitive to, is that the handling of this whole 'Karlton'
issue (read this as U.S. distributor/American businessman)has affected
me to the point that I feel I don't need to purchase Hitec/MPX products
anymore.
Adios.
Jay.

Re: New Multiplex things!

Multiplex was just purchased by RCD Hitec. So, it looks like you get to
support the South Korean economy.
