Nobody came in and said anything contentious until after the argument was well into the pissing match stages, and that was only after it was brought up by a certain airplane distributor. To the best of my knowledge, nobody made any terroristic threats or made any threats to try and cause him harm to his business..... It was mentioned that he had a poor business attitude (in a nutshell), at which point the person that made the assertion was called a tool... and the argument went even further into the bucket.
Could we have all handled the situation differently? sure. But there was no mention made of Mac and / or Hodges Hobbies until the business owner made the thinly veiled threat to finish the argument at Mac's place during SEFF.
As I said before, I have no beef with anyone, and really don't care what happens. I went in that thread and made a couple nonsense posts just to try and have a little fun. I even made a few posts under Chris Nobles' account (since he made the mistake of staying logged in on his laptop ) to add to the nonsense.
I agree that Mac should be left out of it, and if this is causing the Hodgehound name to be associated with it, and it is causing Mac consternation I will certainly cease and desist anything to do with posting in that thread. This petty argument is definitely not worth making one of the most respected people I know mad at me.
However, I challenge anybody to show me where I said anything derogatory about the company or its products. I have also never publicly said that "I'll never buy one of those [insert name of product mfr. here] again."
That's not my style. I speak with my wallet and let everyone else make up their own mind.
If memory serves me, they much resemble the coyote's plans to catch the roadrunner....
