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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Yes, for the "damaged" Revs which I would suspect he doesn't even have to sell.

Multiple offers have been made over the past 2 weeks, the listing said "highest bid in the next 24 hours wins", yet every inquiry has prompted replies to the effect of "these kites don't fly, read the reviews" and the bids are allowed to expire or are declined.

My guess is again, that he doesn't even have these two kites and has a false ad purely for the purpose of libel.

Again, just a suspicion, I don't have confirmation of this but all signs certainly indicate it.

I would have to agree. I really have to wonder why this guy, besides trying to legitimize himself through libel, would even want to call attention to a knowledgeable base of people, who can only hurt his business by having a truly informed customer after they visit the forums. Seems that it would be smarter to leave well enough alone, but maybe that is the point.

I've exchanged several emails asking that the mention of the GWTW Forum be removed form the website that he created.  I realize that this guy is in no way a threat to the forum.  Last week i did log a complaint about his (now removed) eBay listing.

Beyond that I am done with this guy.

Unless he decides to start digging for exploits or hacking user accounts.

Make sure the forum DB at least is being backed up.

Well, I did my homework yesterday and remembered (was reminded) that web hosting services have in their terms of service statements about use of such space for slander and personal information so I contacted their host's legal department and filled out the appropriate forms...

Terrified, not. I've got time, my own server in a major data center and a wealth of digital resources at my disposal.

Dan, I know you'll be reading this... Really man, it don't have to be like this... All you need to do is shift your approach a tad, sell kites for which there is no copyright or trademark debate, an original line of products... Something you can stand in the light with and be proud of, and you'd feel the difference in your core.

Surely the fact that major firms like eBay and BlueHost have applied clear legal policies against your behavior says something?

I wish everyone the best in their own ventures, but when the ethical line is crossed... Gloves are off, pure and simple.
