WOW, talk about serious arrogance here. Look, you need to do a search on here for a thread under damage gravely machine or something like that. You will see how they handled their issue and you know how you handled this issue. What a contrast, to give you the cliff notes Gravely provided the ultimate CS, you on the other hand, epic fail!

I agree, it's never a good idea to come out of the gate threatening litigation....it puts the other party in a defensive mode. Litigation should be your last choice, but I know that people are people and sometimes we all do things that are a "knee jerk" reaction.

Hope your problem is taken care of.

You have no idea what I have a mind for my brother.

You want to make this personal with me now? You don't seem to have a mind for much of anything right now other than showing a seemingly large ego. Re-read my post. I am not taking sides here as I have already said. This crap should be dealt with off forum first, but if someone attacks someone else publicly, rep or no rep, a person has a right to defend their character on the same forum. There's no mythical difference between Mark the man, and Mark the rep. His rep as a business man was being called into question and he has every right to defend himself. If you can't see that, you have the problem understanding, not me.

As for Craig, I understand his feelings as I've already said. as well. Still, cooler heads should have prevailed until they had at least talked to each other one way or the other after the day Craig thought they were to meet had come and gone to find out if they were actually going to meet FTF afterall as Craig thought. If he had been blown off at that point, then I don't blame him for posting it all here.

You have no idea of who you are talking to on a public forum bro. I didn't attack you, and you have no reason to come off like that with me.

Craig-

I don't want you to feel like I'm bagging on you bro. Such is not the case. I just think you might have ended up with a much better outcome if you had waited a bit before posting this tonight. At least until you found out for sure if he was blowing you off entirely rather than just being late. I know when you want to get things resolved it can seem like it takes forever. Now you are both angry, and probably neither wants to really work it out with the other if the truth were told. I really hope this works out to your satisfaction.

BTW- your stripes look pretty darn good to me (on your own lawn).

In your post you said fair is fair. This means you found both parties actions reasonable. I disagreed. I stand behind what I said.

I don't mind others disagreeing with me, but I do mind when they start impugning me directly as you did. I got your point about him being a rep, and if this had taken place between them FTF at the dealership, but still basically for the most part in private, then yea, the rep should take the heat. That's his job. However, when it takes place where everyone is "listening" and it's not just members of this forum, but anyone who googles BB can read it, then it's a different ballgame at that point. That's why this should have all been handled offline first.
