Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

If the only other option in the world to get your hands on a cheeseburger was to buy it from McDs because they had the market sewn up like Rev than sure you are.Now we all know that's not the case.So maybe you should go away and think about it for a few more days and come up with a even more dumb example.

I believe that with every one of our rev that takes to the sky something is stolen from Rev;
With a complete rip off it the price of a complete rev,
I am not of the belief that every Rev-copy represents a lost sale of a genuine Rev. I hold it to be true that many people who would not consider the purchase of one of these kites, for whatever reason they wish to put forward, both are happy and capable of putting a close enough approximation together for themselves.

I know I did.

The kite that I made a long time ago did not represent a lost sale to Rev because it was a kite that at the time was not available. It's long since dead anyway.

Re Zippy/Thief
Like I said I have done the exact same thing as you and I believe I stole at least something from Rev and I'm man enough to admit it.You say it's OK because you wouldn't be purchasing anything from them,but you didn't mind taking their R and D for nothing.

Good idea, but can we have something like"but it's OK for us to do it, USA rocks" in English on the back with maybe a picture of Mark with his STepher.

i have not made a rev.....there are thoughts about it in my mind but i have not done so...
when they started to offer up their rev emblem for homemade ones they obviously were not worried about someone using their r&d....
back to the original post.......there are probably more than enough rev-rehashes on the internet already!

I don't recall doing that.

All I said was that it didn't represent a lost sale to Rev and that is wholly accurate.
