we want the vendors to be truthful with us and when they give what they feel is a truthful point (be is a bit over the top) we get pissed.
again sams house sams rules but since this thread was left opened and we have been allowed to discuss this that i what i am trying to do.
it seems at this point we have 2 sides, the people that are totally pissed and never want to talk to john again, and those of us that get that he violated rules but dont see what went down as this horrible transgression
As someone who played role in the decision to ban john and the writing of the OP I can tell you I'm not pissed at John. I just feel he bent the rules to his benefit and we can't allow that. Period!
