    I hope it works out for you. I've got a cabinet on order and seeing your situation end equitably would help me remain confident that I made a good decision.

    am i the only one that finds it strange...you've got time to post...


    but not time to take a phone call regarding a significant amount of money, and the potential resolution of a conflict between yourself and the seller???

    I find it strange that you question his motivations, or his priorities.

    It takes--what? Less than a minute to delete his old thread like he said he would, and to post a quick update for anyone wondering where the thread went.

    Do you honestly think giving Marc a minute of his time before he runs out the door and hurrying him through a call is the better route? Do you think he didn't take the call out of spite after 6 weeks of trying to get it resolved? Or, do you think he didn't want to miss the first 3 minutes of Oprah? :rollno:

    Why aren't you questioning the fact that after repeated phone calls, Marc finally calls him up the same day he gets bad press on Talkbass, and the Dudepit?

    Why not let the process play out instead of playing Internet Sherlock Holmes. Or, perhaps Internet Clouseau is a better comparison....

    Darn it. Now all of us who posted in that deleted thread have to watch our post count go down, and our TB cred diminished.....

    When we can argue about stuff that doesn't directly relate to us? NEVER!

    perhaps it's my priorities, then, that are out of line. but i figure if i've got a couple or so hundred bucks hanging out there on a bass cab, and the only guy that can really help me resolve the issue calls me...i'd be far more inclined to make the time to resolve the issue than to take the time to come on a bass forum and start trying to clean up the mess i made when (IMNSHO) i started a rant that probably shouldn't have happened...

    whatever.

    I really think the original thread was warranted. Too bad this is happening. I hope he puts proper review up at HC.

    But if he hadn't have started that rant, he wouldn't have gotten the call from Marc. Thats the real point...he had to start a thread letting everyone know about his bad experience to get Dr. Bass to take him seriously.
