Censorship Stifles Growth
    #741841 - 07/12/02 03:42 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I recently tried to post a complaint i have against Little Guy in the Vendor forum. The post was apparently rejected. I was complaining because Little Guy refuses to fill my spore orders after a minor incident involving me.

The incident was this: i had a suspectedly contaminated spore syringe. Little Guy offered to replace the syringe and requested the batch number of the syringe. i PM'ed boxtop and posted the number in the vendor forum. i don't think the post ever made it to the forum, because, as i was to learn later, this would allow scam artists to claim that they too had contaminated syringes from the same batch. i didn't realize this when i tried to post then number. i apologized to boxtop and have been very friendly, and certainly not hostile in my dealings with him. When i told him he could enclose my new syringe in an upcoming order i intended to make he replied that he would refund my money and that i could no longer order spores from Little Guy. He offered no explanation and i can only assume that my denial of service is the result of this batch number fiasco. His final reply was rather terse and rude:

In reply to:

Again, I have the right to refuse service to anyone. I don't need to have any reason whatsoever. I have gone back and forth with you WAY too much on this.

Any future PM's will be deleted unread.






I am sympathetic to the Shroomery's attempts to curb advertising abuse and i don't have a problem with the Vendor forum being moderated. I do have a problem with a legitimate complaint against a Vendor being suppressed. I feel that my complaint has merit and i think that vendors should be confident enough to stand by thier actions in the public arena. if you are going to refuse me service and you have a good reason then you should be ashamed to let everyone in the community know.

i would like to say that, aside from this crap, Little Guy has been a prompt and excellent vendor. i recieved my spores quickly and they were, for the most part, good quality.

i don't see how you've addressed anything. what side of the story makes me look bad? i don't see it in your post.

i don't deny that the moderators were within thier bounds. they set thier own bounds. i am merely questioning those boundaries.


you can post my PM's if you want. i'm not scared. i've been entirely friendly and cooperative with you and all of my PM's will attest to this, so post them all if you want. despite my good intentions you have abrubtly and without explanation decided to attack me.

you still haven't explained WHY you refused me service...wait wait ..don't say it...i already know...you don't have to give a reason! you can just arbitrarily refuse service on a whim! yeehaw! good business practice, genius. does the "little" in "little guy" refer to your intelligence? if so, i have some wombats with lasers welded to thier frontal lobes i'd like to sell you.
actually, i think you're probably intelligent enough. the "little" probably stands for little respect, little patience, and little tolerance.
