Seeing how I didn't get to the computer before the mods locked the thread, I'll have to start a new one. I DID indeed buy the domain name www.dudepit.com and re-direct it to my website. This was done as a rebuttal to Mr. Barr's repeated digs at me on the dudepit for no real reason. AT NO TIME did I do this for financial gain! We don't carry the same products or have the same clients. People that are happy with his service will continue to work with him. The same for Rock City Guitars. Let's go back in time a bit........................... About 2 years ago, Mr. Barr and I were dealers of a product. His advertising of them on his site was worded "I have these in stock" when in fact, the MANUFACTURER had them available for delivery. As a courtesy to Mr. Barr, I sent him a PRIVATE email regarding this, and he chose to post it in his public forum. He then proceeded to call my answering machine at the store and leave a nasty message. The manufacturer cut him off due to this, and NOT because I don't like internet dealers as he states. Also, when I tried to re-but Mr. Barr in his forum, my post was deleted within minutes! I'm also a bit upset that he had to drag Keith Roscoe and Jim Bergantino into this, as they do business with people they feel can represent their products properly, which we do. There is much more to the story as one could imagine, but in closing, Rock city guitars will disconnect the re-direct. I has served it's purpose to irritate Mr.Barr, but unfortunately I sank to his level by doing it. To any of you talkbasser's and dudepitter's that have dealt with me, you know that my absolute focus is my customers! Let's stop the insanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
