What happened? That guy is always trying sling his sales pitch in every other thread, what did he do to get the boot? He had a really nice jeep but he was a really crooked salesman from the start, he was the one guy who attacked and chased off the inventor of the aussie lift because it was available way before his own lift came out. Taking advantage of and abusing a volunteer community is dirty
According to the dirt he posted on a social media page, another forum member was "violating copyright infringement on a patent" of his. Yes, those are his exact words. It's clear he doesn't know what he's talking about in that regard. (I wonder if he even holds a valid patent? If he does, if he's so adamant about it, why not just sue? Makes me think he either has no patent, or the other user's product does not actually violate it, and he knows it.) He also accuses the moderators here of "bribery" (he means extortion). After he brought the patent infringement to their attention, he alleges they told him if he was a paying vendor ($150/mo) he might have a stronger leg to stand on.
I don't know what ACTUALLY happened, this is just his account of it. Frankly, I don't really care enough to. I'm a strong believer in the free market. If he makes a product that I want at a price I'm willing to pay for it, and he beats out his competitors in terms of value, I'll buy it. And if somebody else makes a better/cheaper product, I'll buy that (and I did.) Sure, there are some companies I refuse to do business with for various reasons, but I haven't personally seen this guy be a big enough douche canoe to get his name on that list. Your mileage may vary.
