I agree with the main banter re: the freedom of speech as it relates to
experience, particularly with products, services, et al......after all,
aren't we using this media to try to communicate/educate with our
I also know one good lawyer, but I know one great lawyer joke; seems
the number of them will soon have them replacing lab rats, you don't get
so attached to lawyers as cute little rats, and, there's some things a
rat won't do.   Peace, Terre

Hey at least they tried to talk to you(a year later)but they tried YOU!
 Like I told you on my last e-mail my behind is about two pounds lighter
after my boss bit some of it off because of my comments on the histonet
about a certain German company who should remain nameless.  Apparently
my speaking the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth on
this forum made them a little mad.  If they made good products to begin
with, we wouldn't be having this conversation.  Have anybody noticed how
many pages of the phonebook are dedicated to lawyers?  There is about
twice the number of lawyers compared to doctors.  Aint that scary?  I
wonder when lawyer season is going to open, heck there's more of them
than there is deer.  Just kidding.  I know one good lawyer, one.

Afternoon Netter's,
	Remember about a week or two the topic was getting "flamed"?
Well, here's a
new one. Sometime last year, I made several postings about a certain
and their product that I used and it did not work for me. I wrote them
letter and returned all the merchandise back to them saying I was not
with their product. I waited several months and never got a response,
so I
named the company on the Histonet. Since then, I have been throwing
their flyers, catalogs and any other correspondence I receive.
they are doing fine without my business and I am doing fine without
	Today, I receive a letter from the company with a copy of my
postings from over a year ago, telling me that this has been in
service for about a year (hmmmmmmmm, I'm trying to find out where the
customer service is in all of this. (One year, okay, I'll get back to
that their customer service has tried several times to contact me but
to no
avail. (Hmmmmm, one way would have been to respond to my email address,
I'll come back to this also).
	So after all this time, they want to do business with me. (So
close to the
NSH meeting, hmmmmmmmmm, another point to ponder).
	My big beef is that these companies read this forum and try to
use strong
arm tactics on people who post negative comments about them or their
products. I have many friends that are sales reps in this field (I'm
like come over my house and eat type of friends) and I love these
	I must reiterate that this forum was set up to exchange ideas,
theories and
experiences, both positive and negative. If this was such a "hot
point #1, why did it take a whole year to get a response when they had
company and address on file? Is this how customer service works? I
think so!!
	Point #2 If you are a vendor and don't like a particular
posting, why don't
you reply back to that person via email.
	Point #3 don't wait until it's almost time for the NSH annual
S/C to fix a
problem, it's probably too late by then.
	Point #4 If you haven't had a purchase order or have not
corresponded with
a customer for over a year, chances are that customer does not want to
business with you. Let lying dogs lie and don't open old scars. All you
was get me going on a tangent. I know, there goes Nocito again, but I
to be treated like this from any one. Like they say in the movies,
call me, I'll call you".

Okay, I've said my piece now let the FLAMING BEGIN!!!!!!!!!
