Continue to make yourself appear ever increasingly ridiculous if you must. No one can stop you, but just know you're bashing a good man.
I spend lots of time I don't get paid for with people, don't mind it at all. Talked to two people for over a half hour each yesterday who needed help with boats they purchased somewhere else But I won't sit and kiss your ass on a forum to get business. People come to me for quality. There are other places to shop if you want something else.
It may be a language barrier or mental capacity I am not sure but if you read my original post it says, I don't know him and nothing personal and the post was not about the quality of his product in anyway. I don't judge people until I know them. I don't say someone is a good guy unless I know they are because hell they may not be. So either you are his friend or you think he is a good guy from a phone conversation or a transaction. He may be the stuffed animal strangler or the best dude in the world.
It was simply the business of practices of sourcing from overseas strictly for profit when there were already american made products to choose from. No one looks at all the box work he takes from American workers who have families who support them by actually working hard for it, what would you expect with todays work force though. Everyone wants the quick dollar off of a 3rd world back.
Just my view I am not a sell out and I will continue to hire American talent and source Aluminum from the USA and do my little part to hopefully improve the pay scale for everyone else bitching about wages. I don't feel the need to clean my conscious or the water as I am not contaminating it.
