I still just want one question answered. Why does the fact that a vendor does business via PM exempt him from being banned?

And what I’ve posted is not the extent of the full reprimand only asking if he has sent you anything similar recently, as it’s our policy not to openly discuss matters, but he is aware of the consequences of such behavior again in the future.




I’ve read both post 43 and 97, while I agree post 97 has a condescending tone, he didn’t violate any forum rules with that posts.



Yes we welcomed debates, but I can’t force him to debate with you nor can I do it with anyone else. My comment was specifically stating that we welcome debates as long as its conducted in a manner that doesn’t involve breaking the forum rules.

As for your other comment with him on not clarifying his information, I also can’t force him to share any information that he may construed as anti competitive practices.

If you are a member and find him unprofessional then you have the right to decide not to do business with him. As long as no one is being scammed then he does have the right to share or withhold information for the benefit of his business.



Our operations costs per year and what we charge our affiliates like Focus-Power, C-F-M, Massive, etc. per month does not even cover 10% of our expenses. So don’t believe in the misconception that we rely on them to cover our expenses. Plus whatever revenue we make on other forms of advertising we give right back to the community by giving away free merchandise or host events like FocusFest where we spend thousands of dollars just to provide a venue for members to meet up every year. If our intent was to profit off of this site, we wouldn’t be taking the extra efforts to do such things.
Well I have to say, I think you've handled my frustration amicably, and I respect that. I agree with you that you can't force anyone to divulge information; I'm simply pointing out his demeanor in an environment that is meant to share information. Over the years he has made it a point to tell everyone that we're all doing the timing wrong, but shares nothing else. If he wants to act like that, he really should be relegated to the Focus-Power subforum where he can post whatever he wants, and have less influence on the technical boards where we're there to help each other, such as the SVT and Forced Induction boards. That's my opinion, anyway.

I will make one comment about FLF: what goes on there isn't relevant to the rules and guidelines here. There are plenty of people who talk shit about Tom all over the country, in other regional forums or even in person at meets. I've heard it from old school members, previous customers of his, other tuners and fabricators, the entire gamut. The posts on FLF are just more venting in a place where venting isn't allowed on other forums, and singling them out is not a valid argument when most of these people started off enjoying FF and really just want this site to be enjoyable again without Tom drama.
