My sentiments exactly, in the norm I would say tenacity but more like arrogance in this case methinks.

Hi All,
The superb course on Ebay - just out of curiosity, late last year, I purchased it around a tenner as I remember.
I didnt know whether to laugh or cry - the biggest load of dribble Ive read in ages. They suggest the blatantly obvious advertising media, hiring a machine use their chemicals (Yes really!) and you wouldnt believe the totaly unrealistic earnings they were predicting in the first year.
I E mailed them telling them what I thought of it, and demanded my money back as I condered unmerchantisable material - being unfit for its intended purpose - they refunded straight away.

No one local, is ridiculing you or taking the piss, believe me, we all want to get along with each other. You annoyed us initially for reasons you know, and I think if you could put yourself in the shoes of other local true professional CCs for a minute and had a think, how it looked from our point of view - you would see why. Before you say it - yes I can sort of understand your point of view as well - we disagree, thats all. We expect and see those sort of promotions all the time from so calles CCs who run about with a two bit set up but not from someone with a set up like yours - it was a bit of a shock actually. Each to their own of course, and Im sure none of all this will hamper your obvious determination to succeed in all you plan.
