Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

This guy is starting to get on my nerve.

I wrote him to introduce myself and to let him know that the GWTW Forum was not owned by Bob or John and to "nicely" ask him that he remove GWTW from his libelous web page.

Here is his response:

"Check your postings on their forums.  Your postings link you directly to them."

Interesting as I don't believe I have ever posted to any of the forums he refers to (other than this one of course).

 I asked him for photos of the damage to the Rev1.5 and Blast. But i'm not going to hold my breath for the response.

by now this guy is probably going to notice an increase in the attention paid to him and his listings and must be realizing why......

The related discussion on Rev's forum now comes up on the third page on Google under "Kyson USA"...

All towards the end of giving regular folks access to a wide variety of independent feedback, let our higher power(s) sort out the rest.

No problems with that... some of my comments were definitely tongue-in-cheek if not readily apparent.  I do find it a bit interesting/worrisome from the third link I posted to their website that Kyson might actually be acting as a distributor for some unnamed manufacturer for knock-off third-party kites and associated gear. The power kiting and buggy stuff is particularly worrisome if they are not up to snuff.

I was just crusing Fee Bay when I noticed our mutual friend has changed his current ads.  No pictures of his quad kites in his ads, and no more words like SLE, Blast, 1.5, or REV...LOL  Could it be he finally saw the light???

Reading his responses to people and his responses to honest feedbacks left on 'that auction site' I'm pretty sure he's still in the dark   Roll Eyes   

Anybody else notice how anybody who left negative although truthfull feedback was said to have not paid for the product and was a competitor of his trying to hurt his business?   Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

Maybe he got a little pressure?

Just spent 30 minutes on the phone with eBay and they've agreed that this [libel] listing violates their policies on several levels.

I've been assured that I'll receive some sort of communication from eBay in the next 48 hours regarding resolution.

Score a win for Rev, Kitelife, GWTW and everyone else who was wrongly assaulted through this jerk's activity.

It gives me a perverse thrill to know that this started with me.

A positive is that the money was already considered out of the checkbook so I was able to support Steve and buy a 4D instead!

But the listing is still up, still stating the item will go to the highest bidder over a 24 period.  I can easily see it has been up for over 105 hours by looking at the bidding history, if a fool like me that doesn't know or have full access to the ebay system can prove in 5 seconds that this is not a real offer but the use of the ebay system to slander honest merchants and manufacturers why can't they? In another 2 seconds if I had access to their system that post would be gone. but it's been 76 hours since I sent 5 proofs of the false listing for 5 different violations of ebay stated policy and now it's been 24 hours since John B talked to them on the phone.

It's obvious to me that ebay is in full support of these actions in order to increase their bottom line by a few dollars at the expense of honest hard working people.

This is why I don't do ebay. If you get ripped off, there is no recourse unless they agree to help. They are not in the same jurisdiction as I am, so there is no legal remedy I can take. Ebay and Caveat Emptor are synonymous.
