Yes, Larry was <b>permanently</b> banned from the forum I moderate. He was attacking other visitors, many of whom also visit this forum. I refused to tolerate this behavior for obvious reasons.<p>I am offering dealer information because my local Toro dealer gave me a price for a Z255 that was $2700 higher than the dealer I am referring to. I decided to deal with dealers who were over 200 miles from home. That's all the motivation I need. I am a contractor myself, not an equipment dealer.<p>Common sense dictates I couldn't get a commision without somehow letting the dealer know I referred a customer. If I don't know your name, I couldn't attribute the referral to myself, now could I?<p>Lawrence Stone conducts himself as a man with little moral fiber. He will soon attack others, just as he is currently attacking me. Don't take my word for it, just watch his posts.<p>John <p>P.S. Anyone who is interested in the phone number to those dealers, please email me.
